Pretty in Pink – Indianapolis Outdoor Newborn Photography

When babies are past the two week mark, it gets a little tricky to do the posed sleeping newborn sessions in the studio. It’s not impossible, but it’s hit or miss if baby will fully cooperate or not. So when clients come to me with older newborns (like this session) I encourage them to do outdoor newborn sessions because it doesn’t matter if baby sleeps or not. And let me tell you – these sessions are stunning, as you can probably tell from the pictures. These clients were all in when it came to the outfits and I loved every bit of it! These guys are long time clients and it was so great seeing them again and catching up!!

It doesn’t matter if you are looking for outdoor newborn photography in Indianapolis or an studio newborn session don’t hesitate to reach out! I want to photograph your baby in the setting that makes the most sense for you.

Behind the Scenes for a Newborn Photography Session – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

You may have seen a while back (a LONG while back at this point – months before COVID was even a thing that we knew about) I did a model call for an Indianapolis newborn photography session. I was looking to update my website with some images of me working. So one of my local photographer friends came a took some pictures of me while I was shooting. It’s good for me to be on the other side of the camera once in a while. I prefer being behind the camera but at this shoot at least I got to be behind the camera and in front of the camera all at the same time!

This shoot was extra fun because I got to choose all the set-ups. Normally I ask the clients for input but since this was a model call all the decision making was up to me. So I tried a few new things – the heart bowl with a backdrop on  top of it and a St. Patrick’s Day set-up.

I hope you can see from the pictures how much I truly love my job. I love each and every little baby that comes into the studio. I adore capturing these tiny humans with all my heart. And I hope to make art that your family will treasure for a lifetime.

Please know that this session was done long before COVID hit – I’m just now getting around to sharing. Things do look a little different in the studio due to COVID. If you are interested in reading about our COVID practices in the studio you can do so here.

Handsome Newborn Boy – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Meet Luke.  This adorable, bright eyed cutie recently came to the studio with his parents for his newborn session and he is just the sweetest little baby. Luke fought sleep for his session, but we were lucky because we were able to get some great awake images with those big eyes and great eye contact.  Once he fell asleep, he was golden. He is a stunning little man with very loving parents.

Baby Boy Nathaniel – Indy Newborn Photography

This session was a hoot! Big sister (who I also had the joy of photographing as a newborn) kept us all on our toes with all of her personality. While I was editing this session I couldn’t help but laughing all the way through as big sis give us all kinds of silly and expressive faces. I have no doubt that life with these two is an adventure – but a very fun one!

Big sister shouldn’t get all the credit for this being an adorable shoot. Handsome little Nathaniel was a great sport too. He slept well despite his sisters crazy antics and he was as adorable as could be. I mean look at all that hair!!

Baby Miles – Carmel, Indiana Newborn Photography

Meet sweet baby boy Miles. This handsome little guy’s mama wanted lots of texture and blue for Miles’ newborn session. So that is just what we did. And little Miles was loving every moment of it. He even managed to give us a few newborn smiles.  He was around 3 weeks old for his session and he was a joy to work with.  He looks so cuddly and sweet in his photos!

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

Baby Armeena – Older Newborn Photography in Indianapolis

Due to COVID, this sweet girl couldn’t make it into the studio until she was 1 month and 1 week old. She was a little older then my typical newborn that I have in the studio, but I didn’t mind one bit! She had some fantastic eye contact and her big brown eyes just made my heart melt. She was as calm as could be, even when she was wide awake. Her mom loved the color purple on her and I can totally understand why. What a cute baby girl!!

Elinor – Newborn Photographer in Carmel, Indiana

I’ve been photographing this sweet family since the birth of big brother almost 5 years ago. I’ve changed studios since then and I’ve improved as a photographer. However, some things haven’t changed that much – I still LOVE what I do. I still adore capturing connection in families and newborns. And I have especially enjoyed watching this family grow from child to child.  Big brother, Owen, and big sister, Olivia are so excited about their new baby sister, Elinor.  There were a lot of special touches to this session as we tried to keep up with some traditions from brother and sisters newborn sessions!  I’m excited to be able to photograph this new little one (and her whole family) over the next year throughout their milestone sessions.

More Outdoor Newborn Love – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

I’m loving all these outdoor newborn sessions! Lots of clients are choosing these sessions over the in-studio option due to COVID. Indianapolis is beautiful this time of year and I’m loving (and the clients are too) that I don’t even have to touch these tiny little nuggets to photograph them.

I’m also loving these older newborns. You don’t get eye contact like this from a 7 day old baby.  This sweet baby and family was a joy to photograph!

             

I can’t wait to watch this sweet boy over the next year! He sure is a cute little peanut.

Let me know if you are looking for a newborn photographer in Indianapolis. I would love photograph your new baby in my studio in Carmel or we can do an outdoor newborn session in the Indianapolis area.

Baby Boy Collins – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

I really like to do newborn sessions within the first 14 days of baby’s life. However, when CORONA came to town that just wasn’t possible due to the shutdown. This handsome little guy was 6 weeks old. It didn’t even matter that he was past that golden window. We got all the shots that mom wanted (and then some!) and we also got some amazing wide awake eye contact. Some of my favorite pictures from this session is this handsome boy just looking at the camera and making faces while on the white backdrop. He was too stinking cute with an adorable head of hair! It’s not shocker that this little guy was such a cutie… I mean look at his stunning parents.
