Location Series: Rood Bridge Park in Hillsboro

June 21, 2017

Filed in: Locations

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!
See?  MAGICAL.
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!
