With its hot summers and mild winters, as well as impressive museums, incredible diversity, world-class restaurants, growing arts scene, and more, Dallas has so much to offer. The massive metropolis is filled with appealing photo ops, no matter your interest. Among them are tons of beautiful homes and photoshoot spaces that would be absolutely perfect for a maternity photo session. We’re excited to present a list of our favorite maternity photoshoot ideas near Dallas! Read on to learn a bit about each of these spaces.
1. A contemporary creative studio in Oak Cliff
We’ll start with a straightforward photoshoot option: a simple, modern photo studio. It’s hard to go wrong with this blank canvas, which is a shared studio space for artists and creative entrepreneurs. It’s an affordable option, too, if you’re concerned about your photoshoot budget. And you’ll be located on the corner of Jefferson and Polk in Oak Cliff, right near the unique Bishop Arts District, where you can find tons of artistic inspiration before your photoshoot. Or, you can just unwind by checking out the galleries and restaurants.
2. The Urban Cloud, a handcrafted tiny house
This is certainly one of our favorite maternity photoshoot ideas near Dallas. Located just 15 minutes from downtown Dallas, you’ll find a picture-perfect compound consisting of a barn-roof home, treehouse office space, loft apartment, and handcrafted cabin, among other offerings. As the owners describe it, “It’s like a woodcutter’s home deep in the woods with a bonfire pit nearby.” You’ll love this cabin as you take some majorly cozy photos here. It’s a needed escape from the hustle and bustle.
3. A modern townhouse where nature and city meet
This 1500-square-foot townhouse looks out over the Katy Trail through floor-to-ceiling windows, which makes for an ideal backdrop for any photoshoot. Enjoy a perfect mixture of natural beauty and stylish, refined interiors. This “amazing location” (as one happy reviewer described it) includes three floors of modern design and furnishings, which will make you feel perfectly at home as you snap your maternity photos.
4. A spectacular flower farm with a barn and pavilion
Here’s your chance to get out of the city — and it’s just 25 minutes south of downtown Dallas! This 100-acre sustainable flower farm is a beautiful destination. Take photos in the expansive fields of flowers, and enjoy the backdrop of pastures with cows, chickens, and goats, as well as a rustic barn, vintage farming equipment, and more. It’s especially scenic around sunset, when golden light bathes everything.
5. A historic downtown Frisco secret garden venue
Nestled right in historic downtown Frisco, this secret garden space will infuse your maternity photoshoot with an idyllic ambiance. You’ll find a stone waterfall and pond shaded by majestic trees with atmospheric string lighting. There’s a courtyard with a vineyard, a water feature with a bridge, and a stone accent wall. There’s so much here that it’s hard to capture the beauty in words, so you’ll have to take a look at the photos — or better yet, go and see it in person!
6. An expansive Spanish-inspired hacienda bathed in natural light
In the Forest Hills neighborhood of East Dallas, this hacienda is set apart by its impressive set of details: a stucco exterior, antique clay tile roof, reclaimed stained-glass windows, custom ironwork, and interior antique doors. The two-story living area features a fireplace and Juliet balconies, and the kitchen offers views of the backyard swimming pool. You’ll find ample photo opportunities as you settle into this stunning home.
7. A natural light studio and art gallery
We love this space. Not are there 20-foot ceilings and a skylight, lending the space a light and airy feel, there’s also an extensive and varied collection of art that will make your photos unique and memorable. The loft itself is appealingly modern, yet includes plenty of vintage and antique furniture that gives it character and warmth.
8. An elegantly modern, spacious house
One reviewer aptly described this location as “elegant, spacious, and beautiful,” while another called it “very open and light.” It’s an open-concept home with plenty of contemporary amenities, having been constructed less than a year ago. If you’re looking for a comfortable and welcoming home that’s also a clean, modern backdrop for your photos, this is one of the top maternity photoshoot ideas near Dallas that can’t be beat.
9. A bright and glamorous downtown studio
This space is all about glamour. From the white tufted bed with ethereal canopy, to the 15-foot ceilings and massive wall of windows, every detail makes for an elegant and luxurious ambiance. You’ll find a huge number of backdrop options — walls of natural stained wood, turquoise damask, white shiplap, and black-and-white stripes, just to name a few — which means that your imagination can really run wild here.
10. A boutique chic lifestyle studio
This 980-square-foot lifestyle studio holds a truly unbeatable ambiance, and it embodies a great aesthetic. Bursting with plant life, as well as a beautiful, eye-catching color scheme of assorted art and textiles, this spot is picture-perfect. Look forward to enjoying plenty of warm wooden accents, as this is a sweet and comfy refuge from the city in the heart of uptown Dallas. We especially love the eclectic furnishings, which will add plenty of visual interest and texture to your maternity photoshoot.
