Looking for the perfect photography session in the Louisville area?

I've got you covered!



Hi, I'm John Osterhoudt, a professional photographer located in New Albany. There are plenty of great locations for all sorts of photography sessions around here without having to cross the bridge. Below are 5 of my favorite places

(in no particular order).

The Summary



Location 1: Perrin Family Park

Address: 414 Perrin Ln, Jeffersonville, IN 47130


Perrin Family Park is a private park open to the public in Jeffersonville. It's a great place for any kind of portrait session, and my favorite thing about it is that it has so many different backgrounds that are good for all seasons.



Location 2: Downtown New Albany


On and around Market Street in downtown New Albany is super great. You can get a refined urban look, a grungy back-alley feel, or an autumn walk down a busy street. Not only is the area great for photography, it has some of the best restaurants in all of the Louisville area.



Location 3: Lapping Park

Address: 2404 Greentree N, Clarksville, IN 47129


Hidden in the back of a golf course in Clarksville, Lapping Park has wide open spaces, easy hiking trails, and an accessible creek (if you're down for a trek). It's a location that's best for spring and fall.



Location 4: Mount Saint Francis

Address: 101 St Anthony Dr, Mt St Francis, IN 47146


With tons of space surrounding a nice creek, Mt. St. Francis is the perfect place for all kinds of photoshoot any time of the year. Home of the local Franciscan friars, this is a holy place that requires a permit to use for photography. I've got both the permit and experience to make the best use of these beautiful retreat grounds.


Location 5: Charlestown State Park

Address: 3000 State Park Drive, Charlestown, IN 47111


Charlestown State Park is huge, and there are so many great places for photos. We can choose a big open space, a hiking trail, creek beds, and even next to the Ohio River. Unless you have a park pass, there is an entrance fee though!


And that's just a start...


I can take great photos anywhere, and these are just a few of the places around. The other side of the river has a ton of great nature and urban locations, too.
