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.

Newborn Scarlett – Broad Ripple Newborn Photographer

Meet sweet baby Scarlett. This little cutie and her family were in the studio when baby girl was 10 days old. She was just over 6 pounds, so she was a little peanut. Even though she was tiny she had some spirit to her. She made us work hard to get her to sleep. But ultimately, I won and she fell asleep. I also didn’t mind those awake baby pictures. She has some big beautiful eyes that were a joy to photograph. Big brother, Asher is so in love with his new baby sister. At only two years old he was so sweet and gentle with his baby sister. Not all big siblings (especially siblings that are only 2 years old) and that sweet to their new siblings.

A Little Red White & Blue – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This handsome little guy looked good in everything. He especially looked good in red, white and blue! This little guy’s parents had lots of pride for the USA and we did some adorable red, white and blue set-ups. My favorite is the last image in the post where dad is wearing his flag shirt and holding his tiny baby son. This little peanut had the perfect squishy baby cheeks and soft fuzzy hair. He was perfect in every way.

Newborn baby girl, three stunning sisters, a football player, and a model family

I’m pretty sure this family should be a professional model family. They were stunning – seriously stunning! In real life, they aren’t models. This sweet baby’s dad is a professional football player. I just loved having these guys in the studio. This little girls big sisters couldn’t have been more loving and sweet to their baby sister. It’s safe to say that this baby girl will never have a shortage of hugs and kisses. Baby sister didn’t seem to mind all the attention. She even gave us a few little newborn smiles throughout the session.  All of the photos turned out so well and I  just loved their outfits!

And Then There Were 4 – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This was my last session that happened in the studio before the Corona lock down. It was a fantastic one. I mean, look at this adorable family! Big sister was just over one and still a baby herself. She was such a cutie and so good with her new baby brother. I adore the outfit colors that mom went with for family family pictures – they are soft almost neutral but still have some personality to them. Baby brother had the best squishy cheeks (kind of like his sister) and was a cuddly little guy.

Oh man – I’m so glad the studio is open again and I can cuddle all those new babies. Bring me the all babies!! I sure did miss those baby cuddles!!

Newborn Gabriel In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session in Indianapolis

These beautiful moms are near and dear to my heart as I photographed their engagement and wedding 5 (ish) years ago. So they are long time clients. When they told me they were expecting I couldn’t have been more thrilled and excited for them!!!

Meet newborn Gabriel. He was born about a month early and I’m SO glad he was!  This was one of my last sessions before the world of photography stopped due to the Corona virus. If this little guy had stuck to his due date I wouldn’t have yet been able to photograph him and see his amazing moms and adorable nursery.

Even though Gabriel was born early he was as perfect as could be. He was cute, cuddly and content in the arms of his mothers. He had an adorable rainbow themed nursery that was just fitting for him. His moms’ thought of every detail of his nursery and newborn session with personalized clothes and all. So cute!

The rest of the house also made for some great images too. I loved the large windows and all the fun colors in the home. We had a great session and I just loved meeting this sweet boy and catching up with his parents!

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!

Baby Edda – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer Same Sex Family

This newborn baby girl was stunning. She had the most perfect head of dark hair, sweet kissable cheeks, and lovely peach skin! She was also a great little sleeper for her newborn session. She also happens to have two stunning moms who were just as picture perfect!  This whole session was fantastic and I enjoyed spending time with this adorable family.

I can’t wait to watch this sweet girl grow over the next year.

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.

in-home newborn pictures

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.
