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!

It is possible to get newborn pictures while social distancing during this crazy time that is COVID quarantine. I would love to photograph your newborn if you live near Indianapolis. Let me know if you are looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer and we can chat about your options for photography during this crazy time.

Pink, Purple and Newborn Smiles – Carmel Newborn Photography

This sweet family was the best and baby girl was the perfect sleepy model. The session was full of all things pink, purple and flowers. Baby girl had the most perfect rolls and beautiful soft baby skin. I just wanted to squeeze those cute little cheeks and cuddle her sleepy self the whole session. She was too perfect.

Big brother wasn’t so sure about holding his baby sister yet but he settled for laying next to her (and there may have been some bribes for candy too – hey whatever works!). Once big brother warmed up to the idea of having me flashing a camera in his face he was a little ham and was kissing and cuddling his sister. It was too cute!

Such a sweet family! I can’t wait to watch this little lady grow.

Photographing Older Newborns Due to COVID-19

A lot has changed in the last few weeks due to COVID. I hope everyone is staying healthy and sane during this time of uncertainty. Please know that your family’s health and well being is at the utmost importance to me. That being said, it’s still killing me on the inside that I can’t photograph all your beautiful babies as they are being born. I’ve gotten so many emails and messages from clients and know that if I could, I would photograph your babies for you, but it’s just not possible at this time.

Please know that there will come a time (hopefully sooner rather then later) that I will be able to photograph your newborn! And know that you are in good hands. I have LOTS of experience photographing older newborns.

Typically, I like to photograph newborns within the first 14 days of life. This allows for those sleepy naked images. But there is so much more to each session then those images. When I photograph older newborn those images are not always possible (but sometimes they still are!). Instead we focus on wrapped baby images. Normally with older newborns we get lots of open eyes and fun expressions – so cute! Older newborns typically have better eye contact, full of expressions, and sometimes even a little more hair. Yes – your session will be a little different if we are photographing an older newborn but you will still love and cherish these images just as much.

Here are a few examples of older newborns in the studio.

These images are still perfect in every way, even though the babies are a little older!

 

Another option for older newborns is an in-home lifestyle newborn session. For these sessions it really doesn’t matter at all how old the baby is. We just keep the little one wrapped up for the entire session and he/she can sleep or not sleep. These sessions make for stunning images no matter the age of the baby.

My heart is breaking that I don’t get to see all of you in the studio every day! I miss my newborn cuddles!! But your family’s health and safety (especially with a new baby at home) is at the upmost importance. Please know that when we do photograph your new baby the images will reflect this time in their life and still be cherished for a lifetime to come.

I hope to see you and your family (with baby in tow) very soon in the studio or at your home. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for an Indianapolis photographer during this time. Stay safe everyone.

Then There Were Three – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

These three sisters were adorable as could be in their matching PJs! They were so happy and so stinking cute. When you have three kids 3 and under you probably don’t expect a lot out of pictures, but we got SO many pictures with these there I had a hard time narrowing it down for the blog post.

I know I’m not supposed to have favorites but the middle child here was a hoot! I asked her to kiss her baby sister, Reese, and she licked her – ha! They were all cuties but oh man that middle daughter just melted my heart.

This little one’s mom said this is likely to be her last little one and she wanted to remember all those tiny details – hands, feet, nose, head, etc. So I spent a little extra time on that at the end of the session. Make sure to check out those black and white detail pictures at the end of the post.

I hope to also photograph your new little one(s) if you are expecting and looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer please reach out. Let’s get your due date on my calendar!

Little Aiden and His Family of 6 – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I’ve been having lots of bigger families in the studio lately and I’ve been loving it! This family is no exception. These sweet kids all under the age of six were a joy to work with. With 4 kids under six you just never know what you are going to get and these 4 rocked it. Seriously – they couldn’t have been more adorable and agreeable to all my crazy requests. They were also all so gentle and kind to their new baby brother, Aiden – so stinking sweet! I hope I captured how truly in love this family is with their new addition because it was special.

This little guy’s due date was also on Valentine’s Day so I thought it was only fitting to get him a picture in the heart bowl. It’s not a go-to prop for little boys but it was perfect for this little guy.
