Alli is a Senior at Byron Nelson High School in Trophy Club Texas. Being a former New Yorker, she didn't want the typical sessions you get in Fort Worth Texas, she wanted a bit of urban appeal and something that truly reflected her personality. I'm a city girl at heart so I was thrilled when we started discussing ideas and Dallas immediately came to mind.
We started the session off at Deep Ellum, an area of Dallas known for their arts and entertainment as well as awesome graffiti walls. In a true New York Style, she had the black leather jacket, black crop top, skinny jeans, and black converse.
Taking advantage of the City backdrop, I asked her to choose an outfit that was a mix of feminine and masculine detailed. She picked a colbalt blue sweater with short a-line black skirt. Adding her flair, she also had an amazing pair of leather boots with killer heels that I could only dream of wearing. She rocked it!
Alli mentioned that despite her street style, she also wears flower crowns and has an inner flower child. We found an inner city park that was nicely manicured and she transformed right in front of my eyes! This had to have been my favorite part of the session. The setting reminded me more of Middle Earth...Dallas, Texas. It was so perfect!
Being a true Italian, Alli has incredible passion for life. She's a dancer (Dazzlers at Byron Nelson) and family is so important to her. She's also the Princess of the family and a complete girly girl. We ended her session at the most perfect setting for her, the Mandallay Canals in Los Colinas. She wore a beautiful gown, stunning jewelry, and practically melded into the area that looked like the old country. It was an amazing ending to a fun and fabulous session.
Alli, I wish you all the best as you complete your senior year and start your journey at Texas Tech next fall. I know whatever you end up doing, you will take it on with style, grace, and a whole lot of heart!
