This winter I stumbled upon a Groupon for a local photography studio – Munson-Cox. I’d seen some of their work before, and had always been impressed so I snatched up the coupon as soon as I saw it! I wanted to share my experience at this studio because it was just SO different than any other experience at a photography studio our family has had.
From the moment I made our appointment I felt really taken care of, and was given really thoughtful advice on what would be good for my daughter to wear. The studio is in North Arlington, very close to Cowboy Stadium.
-When we arrived at their building my daughter had a whole photo studio to herself. Unlike other places we’ve gone their was no rushing us, and no other people walking around distracting. That is a big deal for a 3 year old that is already a bundle of energy! Before the shoot got started we were led to a small dressing room for my daughter to change. It was stocked with hairspray, bobby pins, lint brush – anything you might need last minute to look spiffy! And what was hanging on my daughters door? A star with her name on it. Cute touch!
-The photographer we had Chris, worked so sweetly and patiently with my 3 year old. Never getting upset or seeming put out by her excited running and jumping around. Below is a short clip I took of him working with her.
When we made an appointment to come back and look at the photos (unlike other places, you do need to wait to view the pictures) we were over the moon. I would have loved to buy all of them! They were put together into a music video of sorts to allow us to see them blown up on a very large screen. It really helped to see them all before going through them individually with Samantha. There was absolutely NO pressure to buy anything more than we were comfortable with. I really appreciated that, and the patience to let me look through each one slowly and methodically!
I will say that the prices at this studio are definitely on the higher side. And while I’d love to go to them every year, that’s just not in our budget. But for special occasions or to capture different phases of childhood- these photos are truly heirloom quality. They came beautifully boxed- and just perfect for gifts!
Here is a look at some of how my daughters came out!
I’m not sure that some DFW residents know about this gem in Arlington. Its truly a personalized photo experience, and I totally recommend it! Check this out for more of DFW’s best Resources!
