Best Outdoor Locations for Family Photographs in Escanaba, Michigan

Here are my top five favorite locations for family photographs in Escanaba, Michigan. I hope this blog is helpful in determining what location setting tells your family story best.

1. Your Home

This could be indoor and outdoor, but a place that best encapsulates you, is your very own home. It provides a sense of warmth and comfort for families, especially is you have family traditions like making lemonade, growing vegetables, bedtime stories or playing in the backyard.

2. Escanaba Bathing Beach

I love taking a little walk and photographing a little further down at the Escanaba Bathing Beach. The sun sets directly behind the tree line which allows me to photograph families earlier than golden hour without any harsh shadows. It's also very clean and there's not too much debris

3. Ludington Park

I've yet to photograph a family session here, and I'm not entirely sure why because this park is absolutely stunning at golden hour. It's beautifully landscaped and has a ton of open sky for beautiful photographs where families can play and love on one another.

4. Portage Point

If you're looking for a tranquil beach that is off the beaten path, look no further. Portage Point offers miles of beaches along the Bay and is usually very quiet. The perfect backdrop and relaxing environment for families.

5. Horsin' Around Acres

I just started working with Horsin' Around Acres and I cannot say enough good things about this location. There's plenty of open shade, well kept pastures, loving animals for your children to admire and wildflowers to frolic amongst. If you would like to get a sneak peak of this exclusive location, you can schedule a time slot for my Finery Farm Mini Sessions on June 10th. To schedule yours, please click here.
