I have had a few different people tell me about this spectacular campus, so I knew I had to check it out for myself. There are so many locations to take family portraits at Furman University; it boasts a large lake with black swans, a clock tower, winding paths, willow trees, and a rose garden. It doesn’t hurt that I live 5 minutes away either 😉
I went there on a Sunday afternoon to check out some potential locations and I came across 5 brides having their bridal portraits taken and the same number of families having family portraits taken. I honestly didn’t know if I should feel inspired or overwhelmed.
These particular photos were taken on two separate occasions for two different families. I tend to prefer a meadow with tall grasses (like these portraits I did in late summer), but it’s nice to add in a mix of manicured gardens for clients with different tastes. These portraits were taken in the late fall, so I’m anxious to see what the grounds look like in springtime. There were still plenty of roses in the rose garden in November, so I can only imagine what May shall bring! There are lots of locations I would still like to use for future family portraits at Furman University.
