Maternity Session for Baby Number Two

These are some of my favorite clients. They have been clients of mine for a long time… since their first little one was born. They were clients when I didn’t have a studio and I showed up at their home with a LOT  of stuff – backdrops, beanbag,  studio lights, wraps, buckets, and the whole nine yards. In retrospect It was a lot for clients to deal with especially ones that just had a new baby. But they didn’t care. They still like my work enough to keep coming back. In fact these clients now live in Columbus, IN and they drive to Indy for their picture needs every year (and this year a few times so that I can capture their new baby).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My favorite part of my job is being able to watch families like this one grow! I’m so grateful for clients like these ones. <3

Side note, I’m totally obsessed with mom’s purple maternity dress! It’s from Pink Blush Maternity. If you are looking for a maternity dress they have a great selection.

Baby Wearing while Shooting – A Cake Smash Session

My best friend came to visit. She has a little boy that is only a few weeks younger than my little guy. We only do daycare 3 days a week. This schedule works really well for our family. My friend was visiting on a Tuesday when we didn’t have daycare. This was great for the boys as they loved to play together. However, when it cake time to take pictures for my friend it made things a little difficult. So I resorted to baby wearing (which he loves because he loves being close to his mama). I wasn’t sure how baby wearing and shooting would work. However, it went surprisingly well. I won’t be doing this for non-friend clients. However in a pinch it worked great! At the end of the session my little guy got a reward for being such a trooper – some cake! I hope one day these two boys will be best friends too.

Laura and Jacob – Indianapolis Engagement and Wedding Photographer

Meet Laura and Jacob. These two are just the sweetest! They currently have a long distance relationship. However, it’s clear that every moment they spend together is sheer joy. These two just make each other laugh and smile. I don’t think that beautiful smile left Laura’s face the whole engagement session, which makes my job a lot easier. I don’t have to tell my corny jokes. 🙂 But seriously, these two are amazing. I can’t wait for their wedding in a few months!

Newborn Elena – Birth Photography in Indianapolis

I had the joy of photographing baby Elena for her birth, maternity, and newborn session. This tiny little one is only a few weeks old, but I feel like I know her so well already. I’ll start with the birth pictures and move on to her in-studio newborn session.

Elena’s birth started like any other. Except Elena’s mom made birth look like the most beautiful thing ever. She would go from having a contraction and be in a lot of pain to having the biggest smile on her face. It was clear that she was excited to meet her little girl and her 4th baby.

After baby was born things got a little scary. Mom wasn’t feeling well (her blood pressure dropped) and baby had a not previously diagnosed tumor. The baby was loved on by mom’s support system and all was well soon after birth. Baby Elena did have to have to be transferred to a different hospital and have a pretty serious surgery soon after birth to remove the tumor. Elena did spend a few weeks recovering after surgery in the NICU.

The good news is she is doing fantastic now. There are few signs she even had surgery except for her scar. She has the BEST baby rolls you have ever seen! Enjoy the pictures and following along on Elena’s journey. Community Hospital North - Indianapolis birth photography

Elena was a little older than most newborns when she came into the studio due to her stay in the NICU. But she still did fantastic for her newborn session. I still can’t get over her amazing baby rolls! birth labor photography in Indianapolis, Indiana
