North Side Indy Twins Newborn Photography – Lammrish Babies

I’ve had the joy of photographing these sweet babies’ brothers since they have been born. When their mom emailed me to tell me she was pregnant with twins I was so excited for the family! Big brothers were great with their new siblings. I love photographing twins and these two cuties were extra special since I already have a great history with this family. We were able to get so many cute photos of the babies together! These pictures are definitely capturing this beautiful time for this wonderful family.

It’s Almost Outdoor Newborn Photography Season

Did you know that I offer outdoor newborn photography? A few years ago when the the pandemic was in full swing it was the only type of newborn photography that I was able to offer for a few months. During that time I fell in love with these sessions!

Here are a few things you should know about outdoor newborn photography sessions:

  1. The Look – These sessions are lifestyle sessions. That means that the focus is on the family as a whole. There is less posing and more interacting with each other. If you (the parents) don’t want to be in the images this probably isn’t a good session for you to book.
  2. Scheduling – The best time of day to schedule your outdoor newborn photography session is at sunrise or an hour before sunset. I’ll help you pick the exact time after you pick your date.
  3. Clothing – Soft neutral or earthy tones typically photograph the best in the outdoor locations that I use. Cotton and linen natural fibers also photograph better. You will also have access to my styling tool after booking! For baby I recommend a solid sold color onesie. I’ll also bring a number of wraps to use during your session.
  4. Session Types – I offer both a full outdoor session or a simple outdoor session. The simple outdoor session can be added on to any studio session for a small fee. So you don’t have to choose between studio or outdoor session. You can do both if you like! Contact me for a complete pricing list.
  5. Timing – Babies like to be warm! For this reason I only offer newborn sessions outdoors during summer months. This is typically May – Aug.
  6. Relax – Come to your session with a full baby and get ready to cuddle, love, kiss and admire your new little one. These sessions are typically a lot of fun.

It doesn’t matter if you want a studio newborn photography session or an outdoor newborn photography session, I would love to be your Indianapolis newborn photographer. To ensure availability it’s best to reserve your due date before baby arrives. Please fill out my contact form for more info.

Newborn Logan – Fresh 48 Photography in Carmel, Indiana

This sweet girl was tiny but mighty. She was only 4 hours old for her Fresh 48 session at St. Vincent Carmel Hospital. She was super alert and she knew what she wanted! If she wasn’t happy she would wail. When she was happy she would stare me down with her beautiful eyes. She weighed in at just over 6lbs. She might be small but there is no mistaking this sweet girl for a tough cookie. We were able to get some really sweet pictures and I love the one where she was holding her dad’s hand and also the one where she was looking at the camera with her parents in the background.

Photographing newborn in the hospital is one of my favorite things to photograph! Most hospitals are now allowing guests which means I’m able to photograph more Fresh 48 sessions – yay!! If you are considering doing one, don’t hesitate. You won’t regret it!! I would love to be your Indianapolis Fresh 48 photographer. Fresh babies are just the best.

A sweet boy with a full head of hair! – Indiana Newborn Photography

Little Avyay has arrived and he is as adorable as can be! This sweet boy did such a great job for his session and we ended up with a huge gallery- almost 100 images! Everyone had the most amazing hair and I definitely could see where this babe gets his hair from! Mom and dad shared that they were both born in India and Avyay is the first in his family to be born outside of India- he is already doing something different in his early weeks of life! I love how all of the photos turned out and I think that this little man looks great in all colors! These photos will be treasured for a lifetime, I am sure of it!

I would love to capture your newborn baby as well and be your Indianapolis, IN newborn photographer. I offer a variety of packages to make sure that you are documenting all stages of your new little one’s first year of life!

What just happened? 2022 A Year In Review

2022 was a great year! Personally, we welcomed our 3rd and final addition to our family, baby Luka. Professionally I photographed 191 sessions. When I added up all the sessions that number shocked me, as I took off 3.5 months for maternity leave in there!  I’m not going to lie, finding the work life balance this year was a struggle, but I’ve got some ideas on how to fix it moving forward and I can’t wait to photograph even more families next year.

Here is a recap of my 2022 sessions!

Two In-Home Lifestyle Sessions

Lucky for me, both of the in-home lifestyle sessions included the family pups! Oh how I love a good pup and baby shot. These two fur babies were just the sweetest too! Please, hire me to come to your home to photograph your family for an in-home lifestyle newborn photography in Indianapolis. I would love it even more if the session included your 4 legged friends. While I love working with newborns in the studio, I also love the variety that in-home sessions offer.

22 Milestone Sessions

One of the best parts about my job is being able to build relationships with clients. I adore watching families and kids grow. Milestone sessions really allow me to build those relationships and capture that growth.

Special Sessions for My Kiddos

Taking pictures of my own kiddos isn’t always easy. Let me tell you… taking pictures of your own kids is way harder then taking pictures of other people’s kids! That being said, I still try to take the time to take special pictures of my littles because I know I’ll regret it later if I don’t. Each kid gets a special birthday session that they get to help dream up and then I also try to do a fun Christmas card.

13 Maternity Sessions

Pregnancy is such a joyous time! It may not always feel great, but I assure you it looks phenomenal. I adore capturing women in all their baby bump glory! The excitement is evident in everyone of these sessions. Thank you to all these women who allowed me to be their Indianapolis maternity photographer!

45 In-Studio Newborns Sessions

It’s no secret, newborns are my favorite!! All of these babies are beautiful in their own ways and photographing each and everyone was an honor. I can’t count the number of hours I spent shushing, or how many times I was peed or pooped on. But those numbers don’t matter. What matters is the beautiful art I was able to provide or each of these families that they will have for a lifetime. It’s an honor to be an Indianapolis newborn photographer and to be able to capture each one of these babies!

2 Fresh 48 Sessions

The hospitals have had restricted visitors for most of the year. So it’s no shocker that I haven’t been able to photograph a ton of Fresh 48 sessions. However, I sure do miss it!! Maybe next year is the year for Fresh 48 sessions. What do you think!?

22 Cake Smash Sessions

Cake Smash sessions are a labor of love. Each of these sessions take a ton of planning, crafting, building and time. I enjoy the creative process as it’s an outlet for me. Seeing these all together in one picture is a great reminder of all those sets I’ve built over the last year. Being an Indianapolis cake smash photographer is my thing and I love it!

81 Family Sessions

I love all of these families!! Every.Single.One of them. Seeing them all together gives my heart such joy!!

The fact that I was able to have a baby, take 3.5 months off of work, and still photograph 81 families kind of blows my mind! Most of these families are past clients and being able to see them year after year is the biggest joy of my job. Thank you everyone for allowing me to capture your families year after year and allowing me to be your Indianapolis family photographer! I hope you love your pictures as much as I love seeing all of you year after year.

Meet Iris! – Carmel Indiana Newborn Photography

Have I told you lately that I just absolutely love what I do? I love capturing families and new little babies and this family was no exception!! Meet Iris and her family! Iris (who didn’t have a name until after she was born) was on the older side – almost 3 and a half weeks- so this little lady made me work for it. 3.5 weeks may not be old to you, but typically I like to have the sessions within the first 2 weeks of the baby’s life! We did lots of wrapped shots and she showed off her beautiful eyes while wrapped and was very content with that.
Iris has a great big brother, Andrew, and he was the happiest big brother and loved showing off his new sister. He gave us the best big smiles. Mom wanted some photos of Andrew holding Iris and he did such a great job with his new baby sister.
Baby sis was a rainbow baby so you will see some photos of her with a tiny little rainbow.

Perfect Piper – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

I’ve had a lot of IVF babies in the studio recently including this one. I enjoy making custom art to help their parents tell and commiserate on their stories to parenthood. Sweet littIe Piper is the apple of her parent’s eyes and they are so grateful that she has made her entrance into this world! We were able to get a lot of great images and I just love the ones of her in the blue and white outfit. Piper’s nursery is white, blue, and blush so these photos will go great on the walls!
I’ve enjoyed working with this couple for both their maternity and newborn sessions. It is an honor to be able to capture the lives and milestones of so many wonderful people!

Baby Rebecca – A Precious IVF Miracle – Westfield Newborn Photography

Meet Rebecca!
Rebecca Ann is her parents IVF miracle baby. She is named after her maternal great grandmother who was the sweetest and nicest person on the face of the planet. She-so far- seems to be a pleasant baby and quick to calm down if she gets upset. She has her fathers toes/feet and sucks her thumb like her mother did.
IVF can be a long and difficult process. Often times IVF comes with a roller coaster of emotions and can be a very strenuous journey. I am so happy for this family that IVF worked for them and that sweet Rebecca has arrived!!
I just loved all of the soft pink that we used in the session for such a sweet baby girl.  The detail shots were important for the family so we were able to get a lot of those images (check out the black and white photos).
Rebecca was 8 days (perfect timing and she was perfect for her session) old for her session!

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!

A little rainbow baby girl – Zionsville Newborn Photography

Meet Kleine Austin. Kleine joins this beautiful family and is the first little girl! I have had the pleasure of photographing all three of these kiddos and I was glad to see them all again! Middle brother was not too excited about the photos, but I am not sure that he can be blamed- his whole world has been rocked.  Needless to say, we made it all work out well!
I was said to hear that this family had a miscarriage after baby #2 but I am honored to be able to captured this rainbow baby for this family! What a beautifully perfect family.
