Lake Johnson, Raleigh
Great location for all kinds of sessions including but not limited too mini sessions, families, children, couples, maternity, engagements, and weddings. Lake Johnson is also pet friendly. Just be careful of the overly friendly resident ducks.

Lake Benson Park in Garner is one of my favorite locations. It is home to a private lake access, walking trails, a picket fence with a big red barn, large green fields, and much more. It is the perfect place for almost any session and kid friendly. We host most of our mini sessions at Lake Benson.
