Hunterdon County, where my tiny home base of Califon, NJ is located, is full of beautiful opportunities for unique portrait session locations that have a natural, woodsy feel. When my couples come to visit me for their Connection sessions or Family photo sessions I make sure that I give them the best of the best that Hunterdon County has to offer. Since many of you might not be familiar with the variety of photo session locations near Hunterdon County, I’ve compiled a list for you to show you a few possibilities.
This is normally my go-to location for portraits. It’s a beautiful natural park spanning miles and there are never too many people around. The locations within the park can range from open field, to tall grasses, to woods with streams. There’s even a barn with a silo that I sometimes like to take my clients to pose in front of also. This is a really beautiful option and usually my first choice!
Another top one on my list (this one is actually in Somerset county in Gladstone, NJ) Many people know of Natirar for its wedding venue at the top of the mountain (and for you history buffs, the ex-residence of the Prince of Morocco). The park has a circular loop that spans 2 miles around for those who like to run, but for pictures we normally take a stroll through the open fields, the barn, or the more woodsy areas. For those coming in from out of town, I also highly suggest you make a reservation for after your session at the restaurant at the top of the park called 90 Acres - makes for a fancy night out after your session ;)
