Kauffman Gardens

If you have never visited The Ewing and Muriel Kauffman Memorial Garden, then you are missing out on one of the most beautiful gardens in all of Kansas City. The once Kansas City native couple designed the gardens to both resemble the couples journey of the world, and reflect the love they had for each other. The garden is a beautiful combination of vibrant foliage, bronze sculptures, brick walkways, stone walls, and unique fountains. It is hard to NOT find the perfect spot for a photograph!

One of the best part of photography at the Ewing and Muriel Kauffan Gardens is that visitors are always welcome, all year round. Oh, and it is always free.

Antioch Park

Antioch Park, Merriam, KS

Antioch Park, Merriam, KS

Since childhood, Antioch Park in Merriam, KS has always been such a magical place. As a child, I would spend time with my grandmother feeding the ducks and geese, and then playing a wicked game of hide-and-go-seek in their super awesome miniature town. In the fall, the trees turn spectacular colors of deep red, burgundy, orange, and gold. In the spring, the flowers create millions of vibrant bouquets all throughout the park that resemble the beauty of a classic impressionist painting. From quaint wooden bridges over the lake, to lavish wilderness trails and wide-open lush grassy terrain – Antioch Park is full of adventure AND the of the prettiest areas I know of for photography.

The Overland Park Arboretum

Overland Park Arboretum Photography300 acres of magnificence. Until I moved to the city of Olathe, KS, I had NO idea the Overland Park Arboretum & Botanical Gardens even existed. I was so thrilled when my husband introduced me to it in 2013. There are 5 miles of hiking trails, featuring sculpture and secret little alcoves that are perfect for photo opportunities!  The gardens are breathtaking, and beyond compare. My favorite has to be the Monet Garden. It truly resembles the soft colours, shapes, and eloquence of one of Monet s famous garden paintings. Words cannot properly express the true beauty of its landscape, it is someplace that MUST be experienced in person.

Best time for photography: Spring, Summer, Fall
Perfect photography location for: Senior Portraits, Engagement Photography, Wedding Party, Family Portraits
* Please note, there is a $25 per hour fee for shooting professional photography in the park.
