Explore the best places for a family photoshoot in Washington DC

Washington, D.C. is a travel destination like few others. The iconic architecture, museums, restaurants, and other sights make it a prime place for a family vacation. That said, local families can also spend a lifetime here and never exhaust the possibilities. People flock to these venues for photo opportunities as well. After all, a family portrait with the Washington monument, Reflecting Pool, or Smithsonian museums in the background will leave no doubt as to the photoshoot location of your shoot! Where are some of the best places for a family photoshoot in Washington, D.C.?

Where to do a family photoshoot in Washington DC

Washington, D.C. has an unlimited number of venues for family photography, both indoors and outdoors. The beautiful columns and view from the far end of the Reflecting Pool make the Lincoln Memorial one of the most popular places in Washington, D.C. for a family photoshoot. You'll also be close to several of the sights along the National Mall, including the Jefferson Memorial and the Constitution Gardens.
Alternatively, you can bring the family indoors for a studio session! Photography studios keep the wind away from your hair and rain off clothes for an air-conditioned hour or two. Photo studios also include amenities like stools for seated comfort, changing rooms, lighting for ideal illumination, and backdrops for the perfect family photograph. Photography studios can be reserved in one or two hour blocks in most cases.

Pretty places to take the family outdoors in Washington DC

Washington, D.C. has much more to offer than just politics and history. It also has plenty of outdoor venues rich in natural beauty. Head outdoors in March or April as the Tidal Basin will be awash in pale pink cherry tree blossoms! A gift from Japan to the US in 1912, family photographs taken among the cherry blossoms are a national tradition for anyone visiting or local to the area.
Are you looking for a quieter outdoor photoshoot location instead? Rock Creek Park is one of the nation's oldest national parks and the site of a former mill and tobacco farm. Nowadays you'll find a quiet stream and scenic trees where you can capture family photographs with a natural character.
Cherry blossom season takes hold of most of the outdoor venues in DC. The US National Arboretum is a popular place to view cherry blossoms but it's also a beautiful place to visit year-round. Families gather here for photography sessions where you can be framed by cultivated trees and flower beds! Just be certain to plan the session with care since the Arboretum is not open to professional commercial photography.
