Happy Wednesday, all! Can we all just take a moment to appreciate this fall weather that is finally here? I know some of my Indianapolis families have been wishing for this while sweating it out at their 80-degree fall sessions, toughing it out in sweaters and flannel. 😉 I even saw a frost this week! Granted, I was in Michigan, so all you Indiana-folk are still in the clear… for now.
I don’t get over to the parks on the east side of Indianapolis too often because I live very close to Eagle Creek Park (we’re talking walking distance). We LOVE the parks, but we haven’t ventured out to explore the others too much with such easy access to one right next door! When Angela reached out to schedule her session she mentioned Fort Harrison State Park and as we coordinated details for our evening together, turns out that she spends as much time there as we do at Eagle Creek. She knows the lay of the land like the back of her hand and had the perfect little spot picked out for them to park their ’62 Chevy for their family photos. I met them there and was instantly in love with it all – the long grasses, the changing trees, the truck, … and the fact that Angela brought her parents along.
If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know how much I adore extended family sessions, so including grandparents in a family session? That’s the icing on the cake. It’s not as extensive as an extended family session and there’s an opportunity to really capture the connection between the kids (both grandkids and adult kids!) and Grandma and Grandpa. Plus, that means more adult hands on deck to wrangle kiddos while I get to sneak in some couple shots at the end. Always some of my favorite moments!
Thanks to these guys for inviting me out to the park and for providing what is hands-down the best ‘prop’ anyone has ever brought along to a session.
