A Few Of Our Favorite Family Portraits
In which cities do we photograph families?
Noblesville, Indiana is our home. We just had one Noblesville Miller graduate from NHS in 2022, and have another one graduating in 2024. We work all over the Indianapolis area, and have even done destination family photo sessions in all of the surrounding states and as far away as Texas. Primarily, our family photography is done in the Hamilton County area, including Noblesville, Fishers, Westfield, Carmel, Pendleton, and Fortville.
Where are the best locations to create family photos in Noblesville?
There are a lot of great places in Noblesville to take family pictures. Every family portrait photographer has their go-to places for family photos. Some of them guard that information with their lives. But unless they have exclusive access (and yes, we do have a few of those unique spots), we all share this beautiful city of Noblesville. Whether you are a photography student, an MWAC (Mom With A Camera), or just curious about where we make our best family portraits in Noblesville, here’s our list of some of the best places to do a family photo session.
1. Hamilton County Courthouse
2. Downtown Noblesville Square
3. Forest Park
4. Potter’s Bridge
5. White River Greenway
6. Seminary Park
7. Historic Homes
8. Arbuckle’s Railroad Place
9. Hague Road Nature Haven
Why are family pictures important?
There are plenty of reasons why family pictures are important, but let me share with you our personal favorite: Studies have shown that family portraits increase self-confidence in children. Not just the unforgettable session, which we’ll be sure is a fun time for everyone. And not just having a few digital images to post on social media that your kids will only see for one short moment. These studies have found that a child feels better about themselves when parents hang their portraits on the wall, prominently. This lets them know just how important they are in your world. Every time they see themselves looking their best and proudly displayed for all of your friends, family, and other visitors to see, they will know just how loved they are, even when you aren’t right there to tell them.
When is the most common time to take family portraits in Noblesville?
Family portrait photographers in different areas of the country have different busy seasons. This is partially due to different weather patterns, but also due to local traditions. As a photographer in Noblesville, Indiana, we’ve found these to be the busiest times of the year for family photos.
What should we wear in our family photos?
Every family is different and every family has its own unique style. It’s tempting to force everyone into matching outfits, but the most important thing to remember is to wear the clothes that make you feel best about yourself! Yes, it’s adorable when everyone is coordinated, but if dad is forced to wear that 10-year-old dress shirt that doesn’t fit him anymore, no one is going to be happy. Our best advice is to talk with us first, then bring a few outfits for each person. There will be time during the session for at least one changes of clothes. So if you aren’t sure, bring it! We’ll help you decide which outfits work best for your family portrait outfits.
Here are a few examples of coordinated outfits that have worked well in the past:
1. Matching Outfits
2. Pick a Color
3. Match Formality
4. Antique Style
5. Let The Kids Pick
6. Don’t Stress
What else should we bring to our family photography shoot?
Aside from the different outfits you’d like to consider for your pictures, there are a few other things you should bring as well.
- Hair Tools – Even if you choose to use our incredibly talented hair and makeup artists, sometimes you just need your own brush. Don’t worry, we’ll have plenty of hair spray!
- Accessories – Sometimes a big floppy hat or a favorite scarf can make a world of difference. Sunglasses, jewelry, and even that phone with the flowered case that they never seem to put down can add personality to the images. Don’t be afraid to bring too much! We’ll help you sort out what will create the best family portraits.
- Props – Do you have a favorite family board game? Bring it! Do you all love our Indianapolis Colts? Bring your fan gear! Does your whole family play a sport together? Bring that equipment, too! Think about what brings you together as a family!
- Themes – We LOVE when families really get into their sessions. Maybe we need to re-create a great British bake-off, spend some time out on your boat, or find a place where the family Jeep will get put to its limits. If there’s something that you love to do as a family, let’s talk about it and figure out how we can capture that shared interest in a portrait session.
What should we expect in a family photography session?
Every family portrait session is different, but our sessions are more like a fashion magazine model shoot than your local JCPenny photo center experience. With optional hair and makeup services, multiple outfits and backgrounds, and lots of local locations to choose from, we know we can create a family album full of pictures that are as unique as you and your kids. And if we can spend a little time in our studio, too, you’ll be amazed at the creative things we can do when we have full control over the lighting and backdrops.
We have a video from one of our other family photo shoots that might explain it better than we could:
How much do family portraits cost?
For family portraits, our standard session fee is $199. There are options for extended sessions, hair and makeup artists, and fashion or home decor consultations. Or if you’d like to consider one of our destination sessions, we can talk about those, too! Products and images are purchased separately when you return to the studio for your ordering session. We always love to see our families in big, epic wall art! And we believe that a custom-designed album is the very best way to archive a variety of images and create an heirloom that will last for generations.
