Gentle House & The Portrait Park- Two Favorite Places to Photograph

Planning an outdoor portrait session? I get asked all the time if I have any favorite spots so I decided to share with you two of my favorites...

Gentle House

Gentle House is a beautiful place In Monmouth to photograph. Since it is rented out for weddings and events, we need to be careful that it isn't booked for something before planning your portrait session for this location. There are lots of ideas and backgrounds available and it is handicap accessible!

Here are a few of the ideas that are possible:

Haugen's Portrait Park

Located on the outskirts of Monmouth-Independence, the portrait park is 8 1/2 acres of beautiful, rustic landscape. We have a pond, swings and an old tractor that little boys love. This is more farm-like and not as manicured as Gentle House.

Do you have a special place or activity that you love? Let's get together and brainstorm about YOUR perfect portrait session.

Looking for a Studio Portrait for Your Family? Look no further...

This is not the time of year that most of us are looking to do outdoor portraits but there are plenty of options in the studio where it is nice and warm! Here is a little sampler of what we have....
This is our Tuscan Wall.

This background is actually blue-gray and look awesome in black and white or sepia tone.

The classic beige...

This is the Tuscan Wall again...
This is real barnwood from a reclaimed barn.
We call this our Old Master background because it evokes the feeling of  a Rembrandt painting.

Our studio is in a building that is 120 years old and we have the wall to prove it!

Black is timeless.
Here is the blue-gray background in color.
Would you like to have your face on our blog? We have more backgrounds to show and would love to have your family here!
