Twin Baby Bump – Indianapolis Maternity and Newborn Photography

I want to start this post off by saying – wow. Everything about this maternity session just blew me away… this sweet couple, the beautiful light, the fact that this mama is pregnant with twins and makes it look so easy and beautiful, and just wow.

This session took place in late Fall in Indiana. It was could – I was bundled up head to toe.  These two had to be freezing but they didn’t let the chilly weather stop them from enjoying this beautiful time in their lives. They were glowing both on the inside and out with joy and excitement for the arrival of their beautiful baby girls. It was hard not to photograph these two without a big smile on my face… their joy was contagious!

The light during this session was simply stunning. I can never guarantee light like this, but when it happens I just want to keep shooting. So that is what I did. Sorry (but not really) there are a lot of maternity pictures here. But, I love them all so I wanted to share. Believe it or not, their gallery includes even more amazing images that I didn’t share here.

I adore this family. Each of these kiddos is so full of their own personality yet so well behaved. It’s clear that they all love and respect each other and enjoy the company of their family! They made photographing their family easy. It helps that they are a good looking group too!!

The Smith’s Sunrise Family Session in Carmel, Indana

Say Hello to the Smith family.  I have been photographing this family for a few years since baby #2, Anna, was born.  This was a beautiful sunrise session.  It was early, but these pictures turned out fantastic and the whole family was in a great mood! You would have never known we beat the sun to the park.  The siblings got along so well- it was adorable to watch.

A Beautiful Maternity Session After the Storm – Carmel Maternity Photography

Right before this session happened it was raining. The radar said there was 0% chance of rain however, it was still raining a lot. But we went for the session anyways and I’m so glad we did!! About the time we got out of our cars the rain stopped and the sun came out! Then we were left with some awesome clouds and a stunning sunset. I couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque day! maternity photography with beautiful sky after stormsunset maternity picture with weeping willow tree and watercarmel family maternity photography family at sunset for maternity session the whole family in Carmel, IN happy toddler flying! black and white baby picture

A Lovely Carmel Family

Can we talk for a moment about how gorgeous this little family is!? I mean they couldn’t be more perfect! They had a lovely summer night for their family session. Little miss wasn’t in love with having her picture taken due to it being about bed time, but I did get a few good smiles out of her.

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.


Outdoor Fall Family Session – Carmel, IN Family Photographer

Fall makes my job so much easier and even more fun. I just love the Fall colors as a backdrop and this park was perfect to capture all those pretty Fall colors.

This summer has been a pretty mild summer in terms of heat. However it’s been super rainy and overcast. Most of the time, clients want to reschedule when it looks overcast. However, sometimes the best shooting conditions are when it’s overcast out. This session is one great example of that. The clouds started as normal overcast day but ended with some pretty amazing light right before the sunset.

Outdoor Newborn Session – Carmel Newborn Photographer

It’s no secret, I LOVE outdoor sunset newborn sessions. They are probably my very favorite type of session to shoot. That being said, they are also one of the most logistically complicated sessions to schedule. Everyone involved basically just has to be super easy going. Here is what is involved: you first have to convince a mom of a 10 day old (or younger) newborn to go walk around outside on a hot summer day. The weather has to be prefect (not rainy, too hot, or too cold) and the baby needs to be happy (fed nice and full and hopefully pretty sleepy). All of this typically happens after a short in-studio newborn session because mom typically wants pictures of baby in the studio too. If all the stars align and everything goes smoothly then you get some pretty AMAZING images.

This outdoor newborn session was no exception. Baby and family all did fantastic and we ended up with some priceless images. Don’t worry, we also got a few in the studio too before we went outside.
