#1 Coxhall Gardens in Carmel, Indiana: Coxhall Gardens has such great variety! This is my favorite location for family and maternity sessions! In one session you can capture warm brick, a classic red barn, wide open fields, pathways and statues. Exploring the grounds during your photo session is a great way to keeps kids interested and constantly getting lots of variety in your gallery. I prefer to start my sessions just before sunset and as the sun gets lower and lower head into the open field to capture the last of your warm sun.
#2 Cool Creek Park in Westfield, Indiana: Cool Creek Park feels like miles of hidden woods rights in the middle of town. This park was perfect for capturing the golden fall light. The huge mature trees and old fences were perfect for a classic fall vibe and it is defiantly not a secret because in the fall this area is filled with photographers having sessions. Easy to get to, easy to explore, clean and simple nature backgrounds.
#3 Forest Park in Noblesville, Indiana: Another great family photo location! This park has playgrounds, mature trees, a golf course, bridges, beautiful flower beds and is really close to downtown Noblesville if you want to get two locations easily into one session. When shooting at Forest Park I have always left a little more time for my session because the grounds are so large walking around with a family tends to take a little longer which gives great variety in the gallery. Forest park has great shade for taking photos during the day and beautiful landscaping for evening golden hour.
