Flirty and Fun Maternity Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This beautiful couple is expecting their baby in November and we just had to get a maternity session of this glowing mamma as well!  Both mom and dad had classy outfits and in some photos, mom wore a fun and flirty full length dress – I loved the long red dress!  All in all they were an adorable couple and very excited about the upcoming arrival of their little one! Just a few more weeks until I also get to meet their bundle of joy in the studio for the newborn session!

Indianapolis Creek Side Maternity Photography Session

This beautiful creek side maternity session was with some long time clients.  I got to capture this couple on their wedding day, I have photographed both kiddos and I cannot want to meet the new one!  The girls absolutely loved playing in the creek at the end of the session.  It was also so special because mom and dad got a number of pictures by themselves with the baby bump.  All together, it was a wonderful day- then again, when I get to see this family- it is always a wonderful day!

Deitchman Maternity Session – Carmel Maternity Photography

Is this family adorable or what?! Big-brother-to-be reminds me so much of my little guy. They are both the same age, have a happy demeanor, and they both have those amazing long and dark eyelashes. It doesn’t get any better then that!  Everyone in the family is so photogenic, so it was a joy to be able to capture this special time as they are awaiting another addition to their family!

This session was super fun and easy going! It was on one of our crazy hot days we have been having but the light was lovely and the clients as happy as could be. It’s clear this whole family is excited to meet their new bundle of joy! And I can’t wait to have the little one in the studio in a few weeks!

Holden Maternity Session – Indianapolis Maternity Photographer

These are some long time clients and they make my heart so happy!! I’ve been shooting these two for years – including their wedding and engagement pictures!! I’m overjoyed to have been able to photograph their new baby-to-be and can’t wait for their little one to come to the studio.

These two (and a half) decided to do their maternity session in Broad Ripple. One of our stops along the way was to Union Jack’s. This location has special meaning to them as that was where these two went on their first date!! What a fun and beautiful maternity session.

Baby Bump and a Bulldog – Indianapolis Maternity Photography

This mom-to-be happens to be a very good friend of mine. She is my favorite person to do crafts with. We have spent many late nights just chatting the night away. So it was a joy to do her maternity pictures. Somehow at what I thought was about half way though the session I realized the sun was about to set. We were just hanging out like friends and and the time just melted away. Good news is we got lots of stunning pictures of this mom-to-be’s adorable little baby bump even though the session flew by!

These expecting parents also brought their adorable fur baby with. It was was totally fitting for them and he was a sweet pup!

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

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

Best Places to Shop for Clothing for Your Family Pictures

where to shop for clothing for photography sessionYou may have seen my recent post on tips to look your best for your outdoor photography session. This is kind of a continuation of that post. This list of stores will help you out when shopping for any type of outdoor photography session – engagement, maternity, or family photography sessions.

I’m by no means an expert on this topic, but here are my recommendations. These are places I like to shop and that my clients have purchased clothing from. When purchasing outfits for you session be sure to try to follow the guidelines I’ve outlined in my previous what to wear for family pictures post.

Zara – This is my favorite place for little boy clothes. They have great suspender pants and adorable neutral toned clothes. They also have cute little girl clothes too. Seriously everything is cute.

H&M – Great shop for kids and dad. You can get all the staples here and a items with a little flair (like the adorable boys pants with built in suspenders – seriously adorable!). Their clothes run big so be sure to size down for pictures.

Madewell – Women’s clothing beautifully made. These are clothes you invest in, but they will last you. Some of my favorite wardrobe staples/favorites are from here.

Rylee And Cru – The clothes here have an earthy natural feel. There use great textures and fabrics. They also have lines for mom + baby so less work is needed on your end.

Blush Fashion Street Couture – If you want to dress your session up a bit here are some great options for women. I love the tulle skirts (I bought one from here for my maternity session), sequence shirts/dresses, and maxi dresses.

Boden – You can dress the whole family in Boden (but it’s a bit expensive) but the kids stuff is especially cute. Be sure the check the clearance section for dresses for mom.

Zulily – Keep you eye on Zulily for boutique clothing at discounted prices.

Rue LaLa – Designer clothes at discounted prices. Do a search for maxi dress and you can find lots of options women. Maxi dress look great all women.

Gap and Gap Kids  – Great for the basics, but be careful. Be sure to follow my tips on clothing and avoid anything that is neon or has logos or characters on it.

Tutudumonde – The dresses here are for little girls. They are to die for. However they are very pricey.

Anthropologie – This is a great place to shop for women. They have some visually interesting clothing with great textures. Be sure to check the sales section as it can by pricey.

Dottie Couture – This is a little boutique in Indy. So you can go there an try things on (or just buy online). They have lots of adorable outfits for women.

Joyfolie – So much beautiful stuff here for girls and women. Be sure to check out the shoes too!

Borrowed Boutique – Did you know you can rent designer kids clothing for a fraction of the cost of buying it?! The best part is that the rental boutique is right here in Indy (Fishers) so you don’t even have to pay shipping costs. If this is the route you want to go let me know as I have a small discount you can use. The have clothes for boys and girls. The little girls dresses are to die for!!

Rent the Runway – This is similar to Borrowed Boutique, but Rent the Runway is for women (not kids). If you want a designer dress without the designer price tag you can always rent a dress for your session. This is a tad risky since you won’t be able to try it on. However, the risk could pay off big! Twice a year Rent the Runway sells their used dresses. You can get some stunning dresses at a great price. Even though the dresses are used they are still in great condition.

The Zionsville Flower Company –  If you are looking for fresh flowers for your hair or a flower halo/crown be sure to call the Zionsville Flower Company. They offer crowns and hair pieces. Fresh flowers add a lovely whimsical feel to a photo session! The average cost for a flower crown is $42. However, contact them directly for more info and pricing.
