Indy Family Photography | Spliter Family | Coxhall Gardens Mini Session

Updated: Sep 6, 2018

Nothing says dog days of summer like a #watermelon #mini #session ...AND... no one I know loves watermelon like a toddler!


I’ve known Natalie since I was a kid and you might recognize this little guy too! I was so excited to get to see these guys out at #Coxhall Garden to do a quick #family #photo #mini #session over at the #silos.

Baby J is typically a chill kiddo when it comes to our sessions, but it was nearly his bedtime, so we had to pull out the magic touch… #puff #snacks! Worked like a charm!


Pro Tip: Shooting in the summer often requires early or late session times, which can be a challenge for little ones and their love of routine. At #HashTag Memories, we always recommend that young families opt to shoot in the evening, instead of trying to schedule a morning session.


Typically kids are only all to willing to delay a nap, but getting them to go to bed early often ends in disaster. Because of that, sunset sessions are often more ideal. Plus, in the evening kiddos seem more receptive to #snack bribes where as a grumpy-guss in the morning typically leaves mom and dad with very little leverage.
