Baby Girl Finley – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Sweet baby girl, Finley, has made her arrival and I was so happy and excited to meet her!  I have been photographing her family for a while now and many different times over the years.  I have watched her big brother, Greyson, grow up into an adorable little boy!  Finley has some amazing baby hair!!!  She looked so cute in every color we put her in and her sweet little face just lights up the camera.  I just know that both her parents and her older brother are SO in love with her!  Be sure to check out the family’s maternity session as well!

White Cake Smash Session with Greenery – Indianapolis Photographer

This cake smash session was a completely new theme for me and I’m digging it. We did all white balloons and backdrop with a little bit of green floral. You know I love adding flowers and greenery into my newborn pictures so it’s no surprise that I enjoy adding it into cake smash sessions too.

For this session we did one large floating balloon. I don’t think the pictures really convey how big this balloon really was. When my son saw it (as I was setting up for the cake smash session) he lost his mind and he HAD to have the giant balloon. Much to his dismay I made him wait until after the session. It was super fun to see the awe he had towards the giant balloon though.

I’ve been photographing little Mateo since he was born, so it’s bittersweet to see him turn one. I was super excited to do his cake smash but I’m sad I won’t still be seeing him and his family every few months.

Vera is One – Indianapolis Photography

It’s an exciting day, sweet Vera is one! This little lady is my first (and only) niece and she also happens to have the same birthday as me – so fun! This little lady had a rainbow themed birthday party and first birthday cake smash session. For her session we tried out a balloon arch. It was my first attempt and I’m pretty much a huge fan. I’m sure you will be seeing lots more balloon backdrops from me.  Vera just loved the cake, the balloons, everything.  It turned out perfect just like this cute little peanut! I am so glad we got to celebrate with a photo shoot in the studio!

Baby Cassy – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Meet sweet baby Cassy.

This adorable family happens to live right down the street from us. Big sister and my oldest are very close in age and are great friends. New baby sister Cassy is just a few months younger than my new addition. So I hope they will also grow into good friends too! It was so fun being able to capture these guys and I’m even more excited to watch these girls grow up with my kiddos and watch their relationship develop. It’s amazing having awesome neighbors!! They really are a great family and I am so glad that our children get to grow up together!!

Newsboy/Newspaper Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!  This little cutie is ONE and boy is it a great headline!

This cake smash session theme was SO fun!! I had an interesting time tracking down newspaper but once I found a good lot of it we were good to go! By the time I was done with this session my hands and feet were black from working with the newspaper. It makes me wonder, does this happen when people spend a long time reading the newspaper? I don’t think so – but who knows?! Another thought… will this little boy even know what newspaper is when he grows up?

This little birthday newsboy was totally into his birthday cake. He has some beautiful blue eyes that just popped against that black and white paper.

Four Sisters – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I’ve photographed all 4 of these beautiful girls as newborns!  The last little beauty was born while I was on maternity leave and her mom asked if I would pretty please come out of maternity leave to photograph their last baby. She was even kind enough to offer to hold my new baby while doing so. How could I say no?! I did one shoot while on maternity leave and this was it! I’m so glad. All four girls were the perfect models and I just loved meeting their new addition who is only a few weeks younger then my baby girl. The bond between sisters is so special and I am so excited for all of these girls!  Don’t worry, I found a sitter for my little one while the session was going on. 🙂

Maclain’s Cat in the Hat Dr. Seuss First Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve had the joy of photographing all three boys in this family from birth until cake smash (and beyond). It’s been a joy watching each boy grow individually and also watching this wonderful family grow. I adore each of these boys and their parents. For Maclain’s first birthday cake smash session we decided on a Cat in the Hat theme and it was oh so cute!

Bunny Birthday – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve been photographing this adorable girl and her brother since birth.  I’m pretty sure that this sweet little girl should be a baby model because she is stunning.  We did a bunny themed cake smash because she was born right around Easter.  She seemed to really enjoy the cake smashing and she was definitely a bit teary eyed when we were finished.  She just wanted more cake and celebration!  Happy First Birthday, Caroline!  Thanks for letting me celebrate with you.

MVP Sports 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This handsome birthday boy was very stoic and made me work for smiles. I didn’t mind one bit because he had some great non-smiling faces too! He had a raised brow look that just cracked me up. He is clearly full of personality!!

For this birthday boy, we did an MVP sports themed cake smash session. It was very fitting for him because his mom played collegiate sports and his dad played professional basketball overseas. Something tells me that this sweet boy is going to be a sports player but his parents aren’t forcing one sport on him. He has the whole world of sports open to him (at least for his first birthday cake smash session). While we didn’t get many ear-to-ear grins, it was clear that he enjoyed this sports themed cake smash. He sure did like to eat all that frosting!

This was my last session before going on maternity leave. It took place 3 days before my due-date and I went into labor the day after this session. I did take a behind the scenes video of this session and I’m looking very pregnant in it! But it’s still super fun and it’s at the end of this post of you are interested in seeing what all goes into one of these sessions.

Pastel Rainbow Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve had the pleasure of watching this sweet girl grow over the last year. She was a doll so it was only fitting that her first birthday session start of with her wearing her dol! In all seriousness, the Doljanchi (or dol) is a traditional Korean 1st birthday outfit. It’s a sweet tradition that I was happy to capture for this family. We followed up the session with a sweet cake smash session with a pastel rainbow theme. Such a sweet session and an adorable little birthday girl!
