Yew Dell Botanical Gardens Senior Portrait Session
Located in Crestwood, KY Yew Dell Botanical Gardens boasts of gardens and trails straight out of a novel. Yew Dell may be well known for its gorgeous horticulture but something else that makes it truly unique is that it’s listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Once the private home, gardens and nursery for the family of late Theodore Klein, it is now a public space sprawling with gardens, educational programs, community events, hiking trails and even event rentals. If you can’t make it in person to this gorgeous location, you can still partake in their educational events virtually.
We at Green Apple Photography had the pleasure of taking photos of Pyper for her senior photos at Yew Dell. We could not think of a more perfect location to capture Pyper in, and I had a great time getting to know her. Read on so you can get to know her too!
