If you haven’t been to Frances Park before you are missing out. Located in Lansing France Park is one of the most gorgeous spots overlooking the Grand River. The park offers a variety of photo spots for both formal and more lifestyle pictures. You can head to the Rose Garden or hit the trail for whatever suits your style. Bonus: there is an awesome playground for your kids to burn off some energy while you’re there.
Shigematsu Memorial Garden
This little gem is tucked away in the campus of Lansing Community College, so much so that you might walk right by and never know it was there. Inside there is a pond, small waterfall, and pathways to lead you around the garden. While it’s not a huge space there are plenty of beautiful photo opportunities for both lifestyle and posed sessions. Just picture your kids taking a peek into the water at the beautiful goldfish in the pond!
I feel like MSU is a given for photo opportunities but one of the most overlooked spots has got to be West Circle. The beautiful greenery that surrounds the buildings is breathtaking and the landscaping here makes for the perfect shoot. I also love the old charm of the buildings in West Circle that would make for a perfect shot.
Opera House Grand Ledge
Down beyond the Opera House in Grand Ledge is a perfect scene for grabbing beautiful photos. Set on the river you’ll want to check this spot for the beautiful scenery perfect for more styled shoots.
