Whether you are hoping for a picture by the water, a forest trail, or an urban enviornment, let's find the perfect fit for you photography session! Below are some places I've held photo shoots in the past to inspire you.
But these are only a sampling of what's available. I encourage you to do your own research. I'm always up for exploring new areas!
Bolivar Heights is by far one of my favorite places to have a photography shoot. It offers stunning mountain backdrops, beautiful fields, and the sun streaming through the trees at sunset.
Beth's Photo "Tour"
There are roughly 4-6 locations in Lovettsville and Purcellville that I love to visit on the tour. These locations provide beautiful backdrops and allow for a variety of shots! You hop in my car and we go on the tour together! Works best for senior, engagement, and maternity shoots.
