Next up as part of my location series, where I showcase my very favorite locations for portrait sessions--Rood Bridge Park!! This park was a favorite of mine when we first moved up here and my son was a baby, because there are large paved paths that go in a big loop, so it was perfect for long stroller walks! After I shot a vow renewal at the River House here in 2015, I started shooting portrait sessions here and now I love shooting here! There are some beautiful stone accents through the whole park, plus a tiny little forest with a stream running through it that gets the MOST magical light ever. It's also one of my favorite locations for clients in Hillsboro who are looking to stick close to home--it's just on the south edge of Hillsboro near Hillsboro High School and Meriwether Golf Club. It's a perfect option if you're looking for a forest location on the west side without having to go in to Forest Park! Fewer crowds, shorter drive, and the trees and light are just as beautiful!
I love these stone steps! And the park is a favorite for dog-owners because it's so large with plenty of room to walk!
If you happen to be there in late summer, there's a good chance we'll be able to find some tall grass to shoot in, which you KNOW is my favorite!
