Best Family Photography locations in Maple Grove Minnesota

by | Mar 1, 2023 | Locations


Don’t live in the city? That’s no biggie I travel. Here are just a few destinations in Maple Grove, Minnesota that serve as beautiful scenery for couple, family, and really any type of photo session that your heart can imagine. The great thing about these locations is that if you have kids- the can run wild. My kids need space! In no particular order here are my favorite places to take family pictures in Maple Grove. 


If you are an artist at heart, the Maple Grove Arts Center will bring out your creativity while you enjoy the beautiful greenery of the surroundings. One of the fun things about my job is that I get to scout all kinds of awesome locations and this one is a total gem. 

At some point in my life, when I’m not working-  I’m totally planning a day outing with my husband and kids to spend some time doing art projects at the Maple Grove Arts Center. Taking a photo at this location is so much fun because I’m reminded of how much we all just want to play and bring out the kid in ourselves. This is a great place to bring out your inner 5-year-old! 😉 In fact, it’s my dream to build a photography studio in my backyard where my garage is for my art (which is photography of course) so I can sit and look and my flowers and pool 6 months out of the year and just CREATE!


Fish Lake Regional Park is another beautiful lakeside location that is a fun spot to get pictures of families. I love that there is so much to do here and if you like to be active we can definitely get great photos here. There are opportunities for canoeing, fishing, and even an off-leash dog park. You can also take a bike ride along Medicine Lake Regional Trail. If you’re biking family, you could even consider having your bikes included in the family photography.


I love the gazebo and fountain at this location! Central Park of Maple Grove is an expansive location with so much to do, including ice-skating in the winter- splash pad in the summer. Not to mention the best playground ever. When my kids were younger I left South Minneapolis for this place ALL. THE. TIME. 

Still wanting more location ideas? No worries! I got you. Just head on over to my favorite Plymouth locations for more ideas!
