The C Family Outside // Azalea Garden Philadelphia Family Photographer

Azalea Garden Philadelphia Family Photographer

Selecting the perfect backdrop for your family photography session is important. It needs character. It needs to engage the little ones and encourage them to move around and feel safe. I love to find well lit and luscious locations in the Philadelphia area to use for my photography sessions. Philadelphia offers many unique backdrops that will contribute to beautiful family portraits. The Azalea Garden is one of my favorites!

I shoot at the Azalea Garden throughout the year. It’s a convenient location for many of my clients being right in the Fairmount section of Philadelphia, behind the Art Museum next to the Waterworks Restaurant on Kelly Drive. It’s a lot of fun seeing the park bloom and change throughout the year. One of my favorite characteristics of the park is the built in structures for the family I’m photographing to use. There are several park benches as well as stone steps and a stone wall. When it comes to photographing children, it’s great to have these things on-location. I can use these areas to help interact and engage with the little ones. Sometimes it involves jumping from the bottom step to the ground which is always a ton of fun for toddler and preschool clients. This beautiful family of four made my job easy!
