Downtown McKinney is a wonderful place to take senior portraits and can be found just 30 miles North of Dallas. One of the reasons this is such a great place to shoot is because it’s a very authentic and historic city. There are around 100 unique shops and about 12 restaurants in the downtown area. You can also find a variety of specialty shops, art galleries, antique stores, and apparel boutiques in the area. Downtown McKinney offers a wide range of lovely textures for senior portraits such as brick walls, a lovely fountain, a small park area, and the main street makes for a fun picture as well. Be sure to check it out during the fall season when they have hay bales and other decorations around the town.
