Where to take family photos in Pigeon Forge
You have brought your family to the mountains and you want to commemorate the trip. You want to capture a good picture of you and your kids in Pigeon Forge, but where do you take those pictures? Here are several places that you can go to take some great family pictures in Pigeon Forge.
Patriot Park – Patriot Park is centrally located with plenty of parking and lots of natural beauty. Sitting right beside the river, Patriot Park has some beautiful locations along the river and in the park itself to take family pictures. Also, this area of the Smokies is not quite as hilly, so you don’t have to worry about your tripod tipping over.
Pigeon Forge Community Center Park – Here is a favorite for local photographers when they are taking family portraits outdoors: the park behind the Pigeon Forge Community Center. This park has some wonderful grassy areas under the trees and several playgrounds that give plenty of options for great pictures. Though, if you are looking for that place that the pros use, it is the footbridge over the creek located at the back of the park. The footbridge is set in a clump of trees and gives you the feeling of being in the wilderness, away from the Parkway and civilization. A great location!
Dixie Stampede – Dixie Stampede changes the decoration on the lawn in front of their building throughout the year. In the spring, the summer, the fall, and the winter, they put on a show with the decorations they put out in front of their venue. People go to Dixie to take pictures of the decorations but they also go to take pictures in and around those decorations as well.
Your Cabin – But be fair, the best place to take pictures in and around Pigeon Forge is in the seclusion of your own cabin in the Smokies. The cabins in and around Pigeon Forge were built to give you the best view possible from the decks on the cabin. Line the family up on one of the decks and start snapping away. Let the backdrop of the Smokies be the backdrop for your pictures. Get everybody in coordinating outfits and start snapping away. You are going to get some amazing photos and have a blast while you do it. The best thing about taking the pictures at the cabin is the fact that you don’t have to drive anywhere to take the pictures to remember your visit to the Smokies.
