The UGA Botanical Gardens - 2450 S Milledge Ave, Athens, GA 30606 Phone: 706-542-1244 Website:

#1 on my list of top 10 places for portraits in Athens and Watkinsville, the botanical gardens are probably where 85% of my photos sessions are shot. I love it most in the autumn for holiday family photos. The leaves turn a magnificent brilliant orange in mid November. The locations are all different there. From huge granite rocks and wooden benches to sit on, to stone walls and iron gates to lean on, to perfect green grass lawns or tall grass fields to lounge in, the gardens pretty much have it all. Pathways to walk, wild creeks to stick your toes in, both overgrown and manicured areas. It's so super versatile.

In the more managed sections there are flowers depending on the seasons, brick pathways and gazebos for shade. The wilder places have dirt paths through tall trees, but watch out for fire ants.

This is even a great place to come if you're not taking pictures. You might find me here birdwatching on my days 'off'. I also buy all of my personal garden plants there at the Plantapalooza plant sale, and definitely don't miss Insectival and the outdoor sunflower concerts in the summers.
