I’ve got a few favorite locations for outdoor photography here in Virginia but today I’m going to share a Florida location! Here’s why Tree Tops Park is great for family photography (with beautiful examples from a recent maternity and family session at this location!)
“Tree Tops Park is a serene and captivating natural oasis nestled in the heart of Davie, Florida. Spread across 243 acres, this picturesque park offers a welcome escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. With its lush green landscapes, tranquil lakes, and towering trees, it provides a perfect setting for relaxation and recreation.
Nature enthusiasts can explore the extensive network of hiking trails, immersing themselves in the beauty of the surrounding flora and fauna. The park also features picnic areas and playgrounds, making it an ideal destination for families and friends to gather and enjoy a day in nature. Whether it’s birdwatching, fishing, or simply taking a leisurely stroll, Tree Tops Park promises a memorable experience in a breathtaking natural setting.”
Why I Love Tree Tops Park for Family Photos
With nature trails, a freshwater marsh, and bridge, the park provides several different backdrops to give variety to your photos. This is something I take into consideration when helping you choose the perfect spot for your family pictures. No matter how beautiful one backdrop is—it’s only one backdrop. Variety is the spice of life, and a place like Tree Tops Park, with plenty of different views all in one location, is perfect for helping us create that cohesive collection of photos you’re dreaming of.
Ease of Access
Another reason why Tree Tops Park is great for family photography is that it’s an easy location to get to, with ample parking. The last thing you want to be doing in preparation for your session is stressing about details like where to park the car! Plus, it’s a short, easy walk for young kids or pregnant moms.
And, of course, Tree Tops Park is great for family photography because it showcases Florida’s natural beauty. Florida’s scenery is so unique, and it’s fun to highlight local places like these during your photoshoot. Whether you’re a Florida native or just here for a year or two, all the wetlands and lush greenery will bring back great memories of our gorgeous state.
While Tree Tops Park is one of my favorite locations for family photography, there are so many amazing places! Check out more maternity photos and family photos for inspiration, and if you need ideas, I’ve got plenty!
