I have been wanting to write this blog post with location spots for ages and I have been lucky to be so busy this year that it has just gotten away from me over and over again. Bloomington is such a wonderful place as it has both scenic rural locations and a beautiful downtown for urban shots. If you need any help choosing a location for your session take a look at my top 10 favorite spots!
1) Indiana University Campus
With a mix of wooded areas and cool architecture IU Campus offers a wide variety of backgrounds and places to shoot in a short walking distance.
The Bloomington Courthouse square and the surrounding B-line trail provide unique art and murals for colorful and grand images.
3) Private Farm
One of my very favorite locations! 33 acres of farm land with stunning sunrises and sunsets, barns, and lots of open field to play in for a fun session!
4) Sherwood Oaks Park
Open fields, trails, flowers, and a creek. Sherwood Oaks Park has all the beauty you need for a great photo session.
5) Oliver Winery
Always gorgeously landscaped Oliver Winery is a terrific place to shoot a session, and then grab some wine and picnic at the pond. I suggest a morning session before the crowds arrive!
6) Brown County State Park
Everyone loves the impressive views at Brown County State Park. I love the endless trees and lakes. The park is just a short drive east of Bloomington.
7) Clear Creek Trail
The Harris Ford Bridge is an fabulous local location. With the bridge, a creek, and some trails there is plenty to explore.
8) Jordan Hall Greenhouse
What if you want some green but it is the middle of the winter? The Jordan Hall Greenhouse is nice and toasty with lots of green all year long!
9) The Barn on Maryland Ridge
A nice spot a little west of Bloomington is proving to be not only stunning but is ran by some amazing local farmers, Perry and Renee Fowler. A newly build barn, a pumpkin patch in the fall, and lots of space.
10) Your own land or special place
One of my very favorite places to shoot to where ever is most special to you! I always love coming to a location that is significant to you. That may mean a park, trail, coffee shop, or building that holds a special meaning or it may mean your own backyard. Where ever it is I want to be there too!
That is it! There are my top 10 favorite locations to shoot. They are all amazing and whichever one fits you best is where we should be for your photo session. Please let me know if you have any questions, suggestions, or know of a new awesome place.
