As a photographer in Wilmington DE, a stroll through Winterthur Gardens makes for the most beautiful backdrop for family photos.
If you live in the Wilmington, Delaware or Brandywine Valley area, I highly recommend a visit to Winterthur. The expansive estate provides many opportunities for different settings within one photo session.
This North Wilmington family was celebrating their daughter’s first birthday, and chose Winterthur for their Wilmington, DE photo session. As members they love walking the children’s gardens regularly. I love working in places that are meaningful to a family whenever possible!
If this is your first visit to Winterthur, plan to spend a few hours walking the property. You can get lost in the maze of paths. If you have children, I recommend heading straight to the children’s garden for them to spend a few hours playing pretend. Bring a game of chess and a picnic lunch, and a good classic book to read-aloud. This makes for a most delightful excursion, transporting you to another time.
Due to the baby’s nap schedule we arranged this photography session in Wilmington DE in the morning. One of the wonderful features of family photo sessions at Winterthur is the variety of shade available for sessions to take place earlier in the day outside of my normal sunset family photography.
No matter what season of the year, if you’re considering a visit to the Brandywine Valley you must make a stop at Winterthur Estate.
I recommend becoming a member if you love it as much as we do! I love supporting a local historical site that is so committed to preserving the beauty of these gardens for all to enjoy.
