  • Playground

4525 Upton Ave S, Minneapolis, MN 55410

One of Minneapolis oldest parks, this hilly, wooded, scenic riverside park offering a nature-themed playground, tennis courts & picnic sites with grills, overlooks Lake Harriet, in Linden Hills.  It also has this adorable tree with a perfect toddler sized sitting spot in it. 

The park was named “The Beard Plaisance” for Henry Beard, one of three men who offered to donate their land on the shores of Lake Harriet for a park in 1884, and “Plaisance” a French term meaning “pleasure ground.” 

Small free 2-hour parking lot of Lake Harriet Parkway, or on street parking at S Upton Ave & W 46th Street.

You’ll have Fun!

As a mom, aunt, sister, and friend, I know how important it is to capture life as it happens, which can be hard as everyone is not comfortable in front of the camera unless they are having fun, so I make sure everyone is enjoying themselves at every step in the process.

Perfect Photo Location

No need to find the perfect spot, this is a great photography location, that I’ve had the pleaser to explore on multiple shoots.

You will be able to love, keep, and share all of their photos. The silly ones. The outtakes. The laughing ones. We want to remember all of that from our moments of joy. Prints and gifts are also available for purchase after your session, using your private online gallery.

We have had our family pictures taken several times over the years with Alisa at Attempting Agape. She produces beautiful photos that capture our family well. She is easy and fun to work with and she puts everyone at ease (including the kids!) and captures such natural and relaxed moments. I’ve had pictures taken by others and I can truly say that Alisa has the “it” factor that I haven’t found with others. I’ve loved every photo we’ve had from her and I’d highly recommend you take a chance, you won’t be disappointed!
