Sharing in Happy Events in McKinney TX!

So often I see happy moments being photographed on our wonderfully picturesque McKinney, Texas streets.  These great moments are captured by any number of our McKinney photographers.  I usually smile and try to weave my way around the happy moments without being intrusive.  I’m not the photographer…I’m a store keep…happy to see the joy around me.  Like this moment captured by Aimee Louise Photography

540 Mercantile McKinney TX 214-491-4118Our home town is filled with wonderful snap shot potential!  Rustic signage to pose near, stone steps in the alley ways, metal fire escape steps….or our horses that make our Mounted Police a McKinney favorite….
