Let’s face it, the Texas heat is no joke! During the summer I will always suggest taking family photography sessions indoors unless we are shooting first thing in the morning or in the creek. One of my favorite indoor locations is the Lumen Room in Plano! It’s air conditioned and produces some really beautiful photos!

When this mom contact me she mentioned that her son never smiles for photos. Well, you know I love a good challenge (not to mention 3 year old boys are my favorite to photograph)! And I think I won! Little guy was the sweetest and he was all smiles! Because of his age I was sure to bring along a few props like this tricycle that will trap them in one place long enough to get a few photos. Pro tip: break a wheel so they can’t ride off on you!

Ladders are another great option when it comes to keeping the little ones still enough for photos! Keep a family member near so they are safe but they have so much fun climbing!
