The community is filled with scenic locations, and three outdoor spots could offer a different approach to your next session with a photographer in Santa Clarita.
#1 – Placerita Canyon
Someone who prefers a more natural, rustic backdrop could be a good fit for a portrait session at Placerita Canyon.
Nature lovers can admire the shaded oak groves, season waterfall, seasonal stream bordered by willow and sycamore trees and a variety of other unique plant communities.
From Placerita Nature Center extends a network of hiking trails, and at least one of these trails is relatively flat for easy walking to additional open space surrounded by trees.
Additionally, Placerita Canyon is home to two historic landmarks: Walker Cabin from 1920 and the Oak of the Golden Dream from 1842, where gold was originally discovered in California, center officials said.
#2 – Central Park
For an option that is a little less off the beaten path, Central Park on Bouquet Canyon Road could be a good option.
A typical park, Central Park has trees dotted across large open grass areas, with mountains serving as a backdrop on one side.
Other things to see at Central Park that might be incorporated into photos are a basketball court, ball diamond, children’s play area, multi-purpose field, dog park, picnic tables and more.
#3 – Bridgeport
A third option within a more suburban setting is Bridgeport, known for its large man-made lake lined by walking paths and townhomes with white picket fences.
One end of the lake even has a miniature lighthouse, and there are lots of benches and a couple of docks spread out along the path, which also tend to draw sun-bathing turtles and ducks.
