If you’re dreaming of a family photo worthy of that discount code (and the gold foil upgrade!), check out this list of tried-and-true locations favored by some of the area’s most popular photographers.

Spot: Public Parks

Why It’s Great: “My favorite place for family portraits is surely one of the city’s stunning parks. I love the look of a family bundled up in festive scarves and warm coats having fun in front of my camera with the changing leaves in the background. And tiny humans running up a flight of stairs or climbing on a log can really mix up the look of a traditional portrait. We are so lucky that our city is full of parks of all sizes that usually aren’t too crowded.”
