10 Best Parks for Outdoor Family Portraits

Our clients often ask us, “Which is a good park for family portraits?” Since we’ve been photographing families since 2008, we decided to create a list of our favourite 10 parks and why we love them!

1. Perdana Botanical Garden (Taman Botani Perdana)

The Perdana Botanical Garden, formerly known as Taman Tasik Perdana or Lake Gardens, is situated in the Heritage Park of Kuala Lumpur. Famously known for the beautiful yellow canopy architecture in the centre of the park, locals often come here for photos and fun activities such as picnics, biking, and even skateboarding! What’s special about this park is that there’s always something different to photograph as they have more than 10 different areas to explore, such as an outdoor area with a huge children’s playground, jogging and cycling tracks, a Hibiscus Park, an Orchid Garden, The Sunken Garden, Deer Park, Bamboo House, and much more. It is the perfect outdoor place for families to have a wonderful time, having a picnic session or plainly enjoying the surrounding nature with little ones and having these moments captured. We have been here hundreds of times, and we never get tired of this beautiful park!

Entrance Fee: Free
Opening Hours: 7am – 8pm

2. TTDI Park

This park is a hidden gem, mostly known to locals, located in a quiet housing area in Taman Tun Dr. Ismail. Its main feature is a huge lake surrounded by more flora and people walking on the tracks. It is a beautiful spot for families to have a relaxing morning or evening and for their photographs to be taken when the golden hour hits them stunningly. Children can also wade in or catch small fish in the nearby stream. There might even be a cameo in your photographs of the monkeys living in the park! Just remember to not feed the monkeys, as they can be rather aggressive!

Entrance Fee: Free
Opening Hours: 6:45am – 7pm

Outdoor Maternity Portraits: Terence & Sarah

There are many ways to take maternity photos. For some, it can be really fun to dress up and bring out the props. For others, it can also be very simple. Much like Terence and Sarah’s at her 37th week. We went for a stroll with them at Taman Aman, stopping every now and then to snap a photo. We hope these photos will bring them many treasured memories in the years to come, as they look back and remember time their hearts grew bigger to make room for one more!

Family Portraits at Home: Wai Keong & Pauline

Before Anne flew off to study, her parents called for one last family portrait session at home. We took plenty of photos in all their favourite spaces around the house, and we caught some candid moments too.

With tight international travel restrictions now, summer break trips back home won’t be as frequent for students like Anne. These photographs will be all the more precious, filled with memories of when everyone could be together.

A Portrait Session: Elaine & Friends

These four ladies came together to celebrate their 50th birthdays. It’s an annual tradition. This shoot also celebrated 28 years of friendship since they first met each other in their early 20s! We had a conversation about getting older and one of them said,

“As we age, we don’t really feel any different from when we were in our 20s. Our bodies might be getting older but emotionally and in our minds, we’re still our crazy, silly selves from when we were younger.”

I feel the same way too (in my 40s now). When I was 25, I thought anyone over 40 was old, but now as I have reached that milestone, I don’t feel old, I am just a wiser version of myself. I’ve added more years of experience to my life and sharpened my focus on my priorities. But as I get older, I must remind myself to always have fun and enjoy the little things in life. Like making time to celebrate life and friendships with a photoshoot, perhaps!
