Congrats! You have booked your family photo session. The date is set with your time and its in your calendar. Your photographer asks if you have any location in mind- and you are blank. This isn't uncommon and I see it more and more. While I may be "new" to the Raleigh area I know that it is not short on some amazing spots and it is my job to help pick the perfect spot for you and your family. I have decided to showcase various places on the blog, taking one place at a time. I will describe the area, give a general location, and even show some pictures from each place. I hope that this can be used as a helpful tool and reference as you book your next session!
I thought I would start with one of my new favorite places-
. We kind of stumbled onto this park one day after errands. Our youngest fell asleep in the car so we decided to drive around. We came up to this place and I asked my husband to pull over so I could scout it out with my daughter while he stayed in the car with my son. There was something about it that I just loved right away. There is a playground when you first walk up and it has a cute arched walkway right there. There are a lot of open fielded areas, trees, and even a great bridge! I also think that it has a good location for not only Cary residents, but those that live in Raleigh (especially North).
Lucas recently turned 1 and we did his family session and cake smash here, it was just perfect! For more pictures from his shoot, click
If you have any questions about this spot as a potential location for you and your next session, just ask!
