Beautiful Baby On Board – Indianapolis Maternity Photography

There is no doubt, with parents like these, that there is a beautiful baby coming soon! These two were so excited to celebrate their baby bump and I couldn’t be more excited for them. They had a perfect summer day in Indiana for their maternity session and the sunset was stunning.

Daisies & Beautiful Blue Skies for an Indianapolis Maternity Session

This adorable growing family was a joy to work with. Big sister is full of excitement for the new little baby on the way. She also loved picking flowers. She picked one flower and it followed her throughout the rest of the shoot. How many images can you spot where big sister has it in her hands?! I couldn’t be more excited to meet this sweet baby and see this adorable family again soon.

Baby Boy Jacob – Studio and Outdoor Newborn Photography in Carmel, Indiana

I often wonder what the babies are dreaming about as I am taking their photos.  Jacob was very content and sleepy.  He looked adorable in every color that we put him in.  I also think that the photo of his dad holding him upright is super cute!  This handsome little guy was a cutie and oh so good for both of his newborn sessions. Yes – you read that right. He had two newborn sessions. He did a full session in the studio and then we did a mini sunset session. Both sessions were dreamy, but I’m partial to the outdoor images. They had a stunning sunset and it was the perfect night for pictures.

Did you know that you can add an outdoor component to any newborn session?! If you are interested, just ask!! newborn baby boy with greenery and succulents newborn photography family pictures and posesoutdoor newborn photography - newborn and family - sunset images

Who knew social distancing could look so good – Indianapolis Family Photographer

This was my very first session back after being closed down for 2 months-ish (I’ve kind of lost track of time at this point.) Let me tell you it felt SO good to be behind the camera again!! It felt so good to do something that felt normal. I was wearing a mask and keeping 6 feet between myself and my clients but it didn’t even matter. This felt more normal then anything I’ve done in the last few months. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to make kids smile with a mask on. That wasn’t the case! These kiddos loved hanging out even though I had a mask on and couldn’t touch them. So fun.

Outdoor Newborn Sessions – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

You guys – I love shooting in my studio but I also have a new love… shooting newborns outdoors! I’ve shot a handful of outdoor newborn sessions before COVID came to town but I’ve fallen in love with these sessions all over again. These sessions are a great option if you want a low contact session (I don’t even have to touch the baby and I’m 6 feet away!). I’m also happy to wear a mask on top of that if it makes you feel more comfortable.

But seriously how stunning is this family with their new baby girl! So stunning.  I’ve been photographing this sweet family for years and it’s only fitting that I photograph them with their newest addition. The baby isn’t within that 14 day new baby window but with these outdoor sessions it doesn’t even matter. In fact I think that the pictures are made even better by the fact that the baby is older. Look at that eye contact! You don’t get that from at 2-week-old.

Anyways, maybe I’m just on a high from being able to photograph babies again. But I’m obsessed. Bring me all those newborns (old newborns or young newborns) and let’s shoot them outside at sunrise (like this session) or sunset!

Pretty in Purple – Indianapolis Maternity Photography

I’ve had the joy of photographing this sweet family since big brother was a little bump. It’s been so much fun watching him grow and now watching the whole family grow by one more.

This session was anything but uneventful! It was perfect photography weather – not too hot and overcast. However, about 30 minutes before the session was about to start I looked at the radar and it was showing storms heading our way. I had checked earlier in the day and everything was supposed to be clear – but that is Indiana for you! Anyways, we shot the session as planned. These guys are super easy going and just ran with it. The session was a tad shorter then normal and we made it to the other side of the park before the storm hit and were able to get some phenomenal images right before the rain hit. It was a long and wet trip back to our cars but it was so worth it.

O and these guys get bonus points for wardrobe. I mean look at that adorable purple maternity dress!

The Poe Kids – Indianapolis Family Photography

This beautiful family was so joyful to photograph!  Mom wanted just some photos of the kids, so that’s what we did!  The kids are all stunning and very photogenic.  Each of the kids had their own unique personalities yet they were all extremely well behaved and great listeners.  What a family!  The oldest is 12, followed by a 10 year old, 7 year old, 4 year old, and 13 months!  We had so much fun taking these pictures and the weather was very cooperative!

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!!
