Light and Location are the most important elements of a beautiful image.
No matter how lovely a place is, it is really important to start your session is during “Golden Hour” that is either at sunrise or an hour before sun sets. Photographing outside of these times is possible but your images will not have that lovely glow and the colors will be very strong.
I find that most families love their images more when we photography during “golden hour”.
Keep that in mind when choosing which season you want your session in. Summer session start generally start at 8pm and winter sessions will start 4:30pm
Location is also important.
That is why today I am going to share with you some of the places I love to photograph families.
I love this spot for many reasons. There are several beautiful locations with great lighting. You can get a lot of variety with the tree lines, open fields, and the pond. It does cost $7 to get into the park.
This park has bridges, treehouses and open fields. What more could you ask for. This park is lovely in the spring, summer and fall.
This park is a favorite in the fall. When fall is at its peak, all the trees are vibrant colors. It’s just magical. The spring and summer this park is very green. While I may love that some families just are not into that much green.
I love this location, it is a 1930’s homestead that is so charming. There is a huge white barn and several other structures. There is also a small garden and a grain silo. It is the perfect backdrop for those who want a vintage farm feel. I photograph here year round. Its a perfect simple background for any season
This park is lovely in the spring. There is several lovely spots and if it is early enough in the spring there are swans in the pond. I really only photograph here in the spring and summer. That is when this park is the most beautiful.
This park is a very wooded park and is perfect for the more adventurous type of family. There is a long walking path with several nice areas to photograph in. You have to be willing to walk a bit to get to the best spots. There is also a creek but it is off the path so you will have to wear shoes that allows you to climb down to access it.
This park has a red barn, large mansion, ponds. This is a great spot for those who do not want the fall colors or would like to have a more manicured background. I also think this is a great winter spot for families who want to brave the snow.
If you are looking for that quaint urban feel with also a park. This area has cute shops, buildings and lovely treelined streets there is also a lovely area with trees and a pond. This area looks and feels different in every season.
Downton Noblesville has that charming old town feel. It’s the historic part of Noblesville, there are several building for a lovely backdrop. Session here will have that urban feel without the heavy traffic. This is a good spot to photograph year round, but I do love it when the fall trees are in full color.
I love sunrise session in this area. The sun comes up right over by the CakeBake. There are several building that makes for a lovely backdrop. In the spring time the Palladium gardens are filled with flowers. In the winter time the Carmel Christkindlmarkt is a fun backdrop. We can even photograph your family skating.
I love scouting out new places for my families. Do you have a place you love?
I am here for moms & their families in Noblesville, Westfield, Carmel, Fishers and surrounding areas.
