There's this location that had been bugging me. I had seen images of it pop up on my Instagram feed from time to time and whenever it did I'd get a renewed enthusiasm for figuring out where it was. After quite a lot of digging, I finally nailed it down. And it was even more fantastic than what I expected...
A few things that I love about this location:
1. So many spiky plants! And beautiful colors. We were there in early April and the tulips were blooming...gorgeous.
2. There's a mansion on the premises, not to mention a reflecting pool, stone stairways, sculptures...
3. They have a bathroom so you can change outfits.
4. Now for a couple of limitations - this venue is only open Mon-Fri and only until 4pm.
If you are a senior portrait client and are interested in a Secret Garden photoshoot, get in touch! This location adds a little bit of complication to the process but is entirely worth it.
