A Squishy Little Rainbow Baby – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Baby Jonathan joins his family as a special rainbow baby and he is just perfect! His older sisters just love having him around and we were able to get some really wonderful photos of everyone together! I just love the neutral tones in the families outfits and this is what I encourage clients to wear as it really compliments my studio well.

When you book your newborn session and baby arrives, I send an email that has a lot of really helpful information in it. It gives outfit recommendations and also a questionnaire so that I can customize each session to each client. It really makes sure that my clients have the session that they hoped for and that everything goes smoothly. I like to make sure that families feel well supported and encouraged throughout the time of booking through the delivery of the photos- every step is important and especially when working around the important and wonderful milestone of a newborn baby with photos that will last a lifetime!

Everyone’s Path to Parenthood Looks Different – A Beautiful Testimony

Everyone’s path to parenthood is different and it’s often not easy to become parents. Sarah had a rough road on her path to creating her family but her testimony is inspirational. I’ll forever be an advocate for those struggling with infertility and miscarriage. It effects more people then you know and I wholeheartedly believe we need to talk about it more. Here is her story…


I never post but feel my testimony may give others hope in knowing He hears your cries. Never give up hope in what you believe to be His plan for your life…


On June 2011, Jason and I got married, excited to start our life having children. In 2013 and three miscarriages later, I was referred to a fertility clinic by the amazing Dr. Sara Pierce. After six IUIs, a doctor at the fertility clinic recommended we go through a very expensive IVF process. After praying many prayers, crying many tears, and saving a LOT of money, we went through the IVF process in 2015. As many people know, it is a very painful and emotional process not only for the women but the men and their relationship. It takes work to get through the struggles together. It was even more emotional and painful when the fertility doctor attempted to extract the eggs and there were none to retrieve. We were devastated, but three months later we felt we needed to do another one. The summer of 2016 we went through our second round of IVF extractions. This time there was only one embryo which could possibly be viable. It was transferred in October of 2016, but two weeks later we found out that it did not “take” and I was not pregnant. We mourned throughout the holidays questioning what to do next.


Over the next few months, there were two instances which led us to feel that maybe we should try another IUI.


In January 2017, a pharmacist I was talking to recommended we become vegetarian before trying again, and a few days later I was reading an article suggesting the same thing. In February of 2017, we decided to do another IUI; however, qualifying exams for my doctorate were set during the week of the planned procedure. It took a lot of convincing from my husband to go through with the IUI. Two weeks later we found out we were pregnant with our son, Hudson. This was a complete shock because we were told the chance of us conceiving were slim. Hudson was born in November of 2017. As soon as we had our son, we knew we wanted to attempt to have another child. In January 2019 we did another IUI, but once again I was hesitant because I was going through the defense portion of the dissertation for my doctorate. To our complete surprise, on the first attempt I got pregnant with our daughter, Hadley, who was born in October. This pregnancy was not easy because at our 28-week appointment we were told that our daughter had ventriculomegaly, which is where the fluid filled ventricles in the brain appear to be too large. Dr. Pierce’s support was a critical reason that I was able to remain calm during this time and trust in His plan. I went to numerous MRIs and ultrasounds to check on our baby girl’s progress during the pregnancy. After she was born, an ultrasound was done on her brain. The ventricle was within normal range! I vividly remember a conversation I had with my parents just weeks after Hadley’s birth when I told them I wanted to try for a third child. Little did I know the emotional roller coaster we would be on over the next eighteen months.


Without telling anyone, we completed three different rounds of IUIs. The third procedure worked! We were excited to tell our family, even though I was taking progesterone oil shots every day. At our last appointment with our fertility doctor after which we would be transferred to regular OBGYN care, the doctor found something he wanted my OBGYN (Sara) to follow. Again, by the grace of God, Dr. Pierce was able to see us just a few days after our visit to the fertility clinic. We walked into the ultrasound room with fear and left with sadness and anger. During that eleven week appointment, we discovered that there was no heartbeat. Once again, devastated and lost, we clung to our faith in Jesus. Two months after the loss of yet another baby, we discussed moving into another IVF conversation with the fertility clinic. Plans were set to start medications and have the extraction in May of 2021. I was optimistic and felt we were doing what we needed to do. The doctors extracted three eggs and NONE of them were viable with life. Pain and grief flooded our hearts, not knowing where else to turn but to God and to our amazing family and friends. We were told the probability of having another child was extremely unlikely. We continued to pray and believe that God’s plan was for us to have a third child.


We contacted another fertility clinic in New York to hopefully find more answers and a solution to our infertility. We met via Zoom with the doctors four different times and did a massive amount of blood work to determine if I was ready for an extraction. My bloodwork came back and the group in New York indicated we should purchase medications in order to begin treatment the following month. I was going to turn 39 in September of 2021, so we knew this IVF procedure would probably be our final attempt to have another child. God had a different plan. We purchased $7500 of medication and ready for use the next month. In September of 2021, while patiently waiting to start the medication and begin the journey, I took a pregnancy test and it was positive with NO Medication! So many signs gave me peace that this was real including the fact that the baby’s due date was on my deceased father-in-law’s birthday, and the day I went in for blood work to determine if I was actually pregnant my Bible app said I would receive positive results.


I introduce to you Holton Christopher Beck born May 16th at 6:37pm weighing 8 lbs 10 ounces.


THIS was His plan for our lives. It didn’t come without many struggles over the past 11 years, but I wouldn’t change it for anything. To this day we are told over and over how shocked doctors are that we were able to get pregnant with Holton, and it all happened without medical intervention but with God’s intervention. We keep the non-returnable medication we purchased sitting in our kitchen as a sign of God’s presence in our lives.

Baby Girl Maizie – Zionsville Newborn Photography

I just finished photographing big sis’s 1st year and I’m excited to photograph this family for another year with the birth of another sweet little girl, Maizie! Big sister, Rory, did so good and is such a great big sister! Rory is 13 months old so the two girls are very close in age. Maizie has a purple and yellow nursery so we did a lot of images to match the nursery. This will be great so that the images can be printed to decorate the nursery! Purple and yellow is not a common color combo for me, but it was a fun one. I just love how the photos turned out!

Baby Boy Ezra – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

I just LOVE it when I am able to photograph babies and I love it even more when this new baby is from a family that I photographed their other children and that is the case with this session! Meet sweet little Ezra! I was so glad to have him in the studio and to also see how much his two older brothers have grown since I photographed both of them as babies too! Big brother was VERY excited to show off his new sibling while middle brother was not super excited about a new man in town! All in all we were able to get some great smiles. I just love the stunning photo of the whole family- the backlit photos are just amazing. Their sweet little outfits were adorable and neutral, which I love. Little Ezra looked adorable in green! The bow ties really just made me smile so big! Be sure to check out all the photos of this sweet family!

A new little sister has arrived! – Carmel Newborn Photography

Say hi to little Miss Paige! She made her arrival in mid March and her family is so excited she is here! She join big sis, Clare, who is 3.5 years old! I also took Clare’s newborn photos so it was wonderful to see this family again and meet their new addition. Paige and Clare’s mama wanted lots of colors! I tend to do more whites and neutrals but it was a fun venture out of my comfort zone. I try my best to customize every session- newborn, family, maternity, cake smash, etc to what my client’s want and I think that is one of the aspects that makes me unique to other photographers! I just LOVE the family photo of Paige all wrapped up in mama’s arms in the dark pink swaddle- it matches perfectly with Clare’s dress! What an adorable and sweet family this is! I just loved working with them!

Siblings 13 Months Apart – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Clara made her arrival and she is a cutie! Her big brother is only 13 months old. It feels like just yesterday I took his newborn pictures. He was so well behaved during the session, he did better than most two year old’s do during his session- and he isn’t even two!
Clara looked adorable in everything we put her in, but I have to admit, the photo with the pink and white lace in the background is probably my favorite! Mom loved previous photos with floral headbands so we made sure to take a lot of those! I do have quite the supply of headbands and props for families to use when they come to the studio!
My sister and I are 13 months apart. So it’s fun seeing siblings with the same age gap. As kids, we fought like cats and dogs and were very different. Now we are best friends. We are still different in many ways, but those differences suit us well. I think it also helps that we don’t live with each other too – ha.
I’m excited to see these two grow over the years and watch their relationship develop!

Fourth Born Rocks Her Newborn Session – Carmel Newborn Photographer

And then there were FOUR! Welcome sweet girl and you are joining a great crew!

This little lady was easy going in all the chaos of the session that includes 3 older (but not too much older) siblings. You may have heard about birth order and the effects it has on a person and this little lady is fitting into her roll as 4th born already! 4th born children have an innate ability to deal well with others, and from the first photo, you can see that even though she is just a newborn, she is relaxed and sleeping in moms arms while everyone else is around!
I love the photo of sweet baby and her siblings- its just so cute! There are a lot of great photos from this session!
I also loved the compliment that mom sent me after receiving the photos….” Girlllllllllll I dont even want to know how much editing and photoshop you had to do to get my wild crew to look so sweet and still. Thank you!!! I love them all!!” It was an absolute pleasure to work with this family!

A Mother’s Bond With Baby and a Smile to Melt Your Heart – Zionsville Newborn Photography

The moment I handed this little girl to her mom for the first pictures (mom and baby poses) she gave us a huge smile. It’s clear this little girl recognized and loves her mom already. It really is amazing on how babies know their mom right from the beginning of life!
Meet Leighton. This beautiful 6 pound, 13 ounce baby girl is the perfect addition to their family! She joins her mom and dad, and big brother, Blake who is 4!  We were able to get so many wonderful shots from our time together and it is hard to choose a favorite. I do LOVE the first image below, but I also LOVE the photo of mom, Leighton, and Blake together- with Blake looking at his mom. It is just precious!
And let’s talk about all of the sweet little macro shots of Leighton and her adorable features- GAH! So cute!

At Long Last a Beautiful Rainbow Baby Girl – Carmel, Indiana Newborn Photographer

This sweet girl knew that rainbow babies (child born to a family that had a previous loss) hold a special place in my heart and she milked it for all it was worth! ⁠This was the only smile I got the whole session. It was epic and perfectly timed. This sweet girl gives me hope for the future of our family. 💕 🌈👶🏻
This family had a long struggle to get to parenthood. They went through IVF and so it was very important to her parents that they had some photos with the IVF supplies that they had to use. We did a number of rainbow baby/IVF needle shots. IVF is a long and strenuous process and this family was blessed to have this sweet little girl- Blair Ivy.

Blair’s mom also mentioned this about her name:”We had names picked out, for a baby girl, for many years. However, over the years those names became too popular and we didn’t want her to have the same name as tons of other kids. So, after many, many years of being sure of a name we went back to square one.

During my pregnancy, I decided to rewatch Gossip Girl. After watching a few episodes, and hearing the name Blair over and over, I started thinking this would be a great name. I proposed the name to my husband, and he loved it!”

Blair seems like the PERFECT name for this miracle baby!

I just love capturing the stories and photos of families and I would love to capture yours as well. Be sure to reach out and let’s get your due date on my calendar if you are looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer!

Baby Girl Lily – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This sweet family came to the studio for a newborn shoot for new baby, Lily. Her due date was April 15 and she made her arrival on April 4th- Easter (last year 2021 – I just decided to save this shoot for her first birthday)!   Big sister was obsessed with Peppa Pig and asked if the pig could be in the images with her sister hence the last image. Since Lily arrived on Easter, we did a bunny set up as well. I can already tell that Kate is so excited to be a big sister- the love in the photos between the girls is just the sweetest.
