When it comes to booking your session, it is important to figure out where we will take the photos! Take a look at some of my personal favorite locations that I frequent for photos.

* = Additional travel fee may apply. Locations listed with an * may be subject to an additional travel fee if the location is more than 10 miles from Lawrence, NJ (where I am based out of). All packages provide travel for up to 10 miles within the price, and if the location is farther, travel fee is $0.70/mile after the first ten miles. If the location does not have a *, it is one that travel is included in session.

Sayen Gardens

Sayen Gardens is a huge favorite. It is located in Hamilton, NJ and has so much to offer - there are many picturesque spots such as a gazebo, bridge area, fountains, water area, benches, trails, benches, and many beautiful pathways! I recommend this location for families, children, senior portraits, maternity, you name it - it is all around, a great spot with so many backdrops!

John Abbott II House

This historical house is the perfect location for Summer and Fall photos! Located in Hamilton, NJ, it is good for families and children. This location has a variety of spots for photos - colorful porches, bench areas, trees, greenery and fencing. Please note, this is quite a buggy area! When visiting this location, I recommend bug spray :)

Princeton University

Definitely an all time favorite of mine! Princeton University is beautiful and has a ton of beautiful photo locations for your next session. This location features beautiful buildings, flowers, arches, buildings with ivy, long staircases, beautiful tunnels, bunch of trees, pathways, gardens. This location is best for family, headshots, maternity, seniors and communion.

* Beach Location

Beach sessions are so much fun! While they are a bit out of the Mercer County area, they are a favorite spot to many clients. I only schedule beach sessions for sessions past 5:00 PM to ensure we are working with less crowds and ideal lighting. The closer we can schedule to sunset, the better. Please keep in mind, beach sessions are subject to an additional travel fee for the location. My favorite beaches are Asbury Park, Belmar, and LBI!

Mercer Boathouse

Located in West Windsor Twp., this location is a great if you're booking a shorter session with JENNAKPHOTOS. It has little variety, but it is a gorgeous spot! There is the gazebo which shows the water behind, as well as benches, pathways, and an area full of greenery for photos.

It is perfect if you're hoping for a few photos for a senior session, maternity, children, and graduation photos.

Creek Location

There's a gorgeous creek location in Lawrence, NJ which is perfect for families and children. Sessions are more ideal at this location for golden hour time when the lighting is easier to work with and has a gorgeous golden glow. Please note, this is a very buggy location and there are also things that swim in the creek water! Photos will be taken in the trails, standing in the water, sitting on rocks and in the rocky/sand area.

Rider University

Rider University is a great location nearby to many and is often overlooked for great photo backdrops and areas! Located in Lawrenceville, NJ, it features many benches, a bridge, hammocks, gazebo, flowers (during the season), pathways, lots of trees, and a gorgeous water area. I love booking sessions at this location for families, seniors, and headshot sessions.

Weeden Park

Located right on Lawrenceville Main Street in Lawrenceville, NJ, Weeden Park is a cute little photo location that is perfect for a petite session with JENNAKPHOTOS. It is perfect for families, children, and headshots. It features a gazebo, flowers (during Spring season), benches, trees, and many grassy areas. During the holidays, the gazebo is beautifully decorated by the LMS crew!

* Rutgers Garden

This location is full of variety! It is perfect for seniors, families, maternity and children.

Please note, this location requires additional travel and is subject to additional travel fee. It offers a garden area with various seasonal florals, log cabin looking house with porch and stairs, as well as various trail areas and fencing for portraits.

Lawrence Prep

This location is located on campus at the Lawrenceville Prep School and is a nice location for a few photos. It has a few areas which are great for some quick shots! Features a bridge, nice area with trees, logs to sit, and lake area. It is ideal for families, senior photos and for headshot sessions!

Washington Crossing

This historical location is perfect for a variety of photography services I offer. Although it is not considered Mercer County, it is right next to Hopewell in PA (cross a tiny bridge, and you're there)! This location features historical buildings, trees, beautiful view of the river, benches, floral trees. It is best for senior photos, headshots, family, maternity and communion.

Flower Field

This location is beautiful and perfect for a quick session. The best time for a session at this location is for the late Spring/Summer season, when the wildflowers are in bloom! This location features a red barn, and a gorgeous flower field setting. The flowers are in bloom from Spring - Summer. During the off seasons, it is a gorgeous field full of greenery. There is also a bench and fencing which I love using for pictures with children! I offer mini sessions at this location each year in the Summer :) This location is ideal for children, family, maternity.

Princeton Flower Garden

This gorgeous garden area is located right on Princeton campus but deserves it's own mention! This beauty has gorgeous blooms and is great for individual photos and family photos. There are some grassy areas, pathways and benches which make for some great photos spots.
