6 Location Ideas for Photography – Family, Maternity and Couples

1. Green Meadows Preserve:

Located in Marietta on Dallas Highway. It’s one of my favorite places because it’s very versatile and good for every season. It has lots of nature, trails, an open field, tall grass, a little white house and flowers depending on the season.

2. Downtown Marietta:

If you are wanting something unique and different from nature, downtown Marietta has some unique areas that bring color into your pictures and a downtown feel. They even have a beautiful fountain at the square.

3. Life University:

Life University is a collage that has a historic area with a wooden path, a creek, a mill with a waterfall, stone walls and a couple of bridges. I mainly use this area in the fall, winter time and early spring because it’s heavily wooded therefor making it too dark for my style of pictures.

4. Cauble Park:

Located in Acworth right next to the downtown area. Cauble Park has a beach, a lake view, a bridge, trees and nature. This location is best when the trees are in bloom from May through October.

5. Smith Gilbert Gardens:

Located in Kennesaw on Pine Mountain Road. Smith Gilbert Gardens is a hidden gem. Although the garden is not really big, it’s perfect size for variety and a peaceful area for pictures. Sessions must be done in the morning at 9 am in the months between May and October. An entrance fee applies of $10 per person.
