North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh (2110 Blue Ridge Rd, Raleigh, NC 27607) 

The North Carolina Museum of Art, is an amazing place to take photos. It’s an actual campus of sorts with trails and gardens that make it a perfect backdrop for any kind of photo session. It’s one of my favorites in the Raleigh area and it’s lovely year round. It makes a perfect spot for photos because it offers such a variety of options in terms of look. One can opt for a more urban/museum oriented session that focuses on architecture and the reflecting pools. Or, one could choose the wooded walking trails and OPEN FIELDS for a more natural setting.

If your favorite park or location is not among these, send me all the details and include it for your session.
A photography permit is required for many parks so reservations should be made as soon as possible.
