Wittunga Botanic Gardens is one of Adelaide’s best kept secrets. It’s such a family friend spot, especially for young families with babies, and perfect if you prefer strolling somewhere peaceful, where you won’t be hit by a ball, or run over by a bike!

I’ve been taking my children there since they were born and it’s such a fab spot to soak up the sunshine, the smell of cut grass, and scraping the duck poo off your shoes.

The spectacular flower display is at its best in October and November and you’ll find colourful natives from Australia, South Africa and Japan. The flower beds are so lovingly cared for.

A good tip to remember is not to feed the ducks bread but rather something less processed such as corn.

If you haven’t been, now is the perfect time to visit Wittunga.

For more information about relaxed outdoor family portrait sessions with Deb, call the studio on 08 7070 1667 or contact me here.

What a great gift idea for Christmas!


Best place in Adelaide for outside family photos

Wittunga Botanic Gardens || Blackwood Portrait Photographer

When local small business owner and Mum Beth approached me to plan a portrait session with both sides of her extended family, the best place came straight to mind – Wittunga Botanic Gardens. In spring and summer, the colourful blooms on display are quite extraordinary. The colours are so vibrant and suit family photos so well.

This garden location is so perfect for all ages – children especially love the expanses of well maintained grass, the ducks and the small lake. It’s just one kilometre from the Blackwood roundabout. I think it’s one of Adelaide’s best kept secrets!

Here are some images from the first session with Dad’s side of the family:
