Choosing The Perfect Location For You! Our Location Suggestions.

Updated: Jul 23, 2018

Here is a list of many of our favorite locations!

But before you scroll down to see all our suggestions... there are some things you should keep into consideration when choosing the perfect location for your family pictures. Think of the type of pictures you want, the mood you are going for, the time of the year, weather, the distance from your home (distance is especially important when traveling with little ones) and of course, all the references from your Pinterest boards!

You can also consider your home as the perfect location for your family photos, especially for Fresh 48, newborn and baby sessions. We love shooting at our client's homes as much as we love shooting outdoors.

If you already have a location in mind and it's not included in this list don't worry... we would love to discover a new location with you!


  • Spring Green Gardens: open field gardens, flowers and some water. One of our favorite locations close from home.

  • Huntley Meadows Park: forest, walkways and trails.

  • Old Town Alexandria: beautiful side streets, lots of alleys, waterfront, cobblestone walkways... so much to love from Old Town. Just keep in mind that if you want to take cute pictures at Old Town, we need to schedule early am to avoid the crowds!

  • Mount Vernon: pretty gardens, old trees, views of the Potomac river..Note: There is an admission fee of $18 for adults and $11 for kids between 6-11. Children younger than 5 can enter for free.
