Shaelyn is One – Pink, Gold, and Mint Floral Balloon Arch Cake Smash

Yay for another adorable cake smash session on the books for this wonderful family! I’ve had so much much fun watching and capturing all three of these kiddos throughout their first year. This cake smash session *might* have been my favorite of the three. We did a floral balloon arch in pinks, gold, and mint. It was a new combo for me but I’m obsessed! Shaelyn, the birthday girl, was a sweetheart and was all about her birthday cake.

A Simple Newborn Session – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This sweet baby girl came into the studio for a simple (also called a mini) newborn shoot. I don’t normally blog these sessions, but I thought I would share with you what one of the simple newborn sessions look like. For these sessions I do two set ups. Normally one in a prop and one on the beanbag (those are your more traditional images in this case they are the ones on the white backdrop). The session only lasts one hour. So if baby is asleep (like in this case) I leave baby unwrapped/swaddled. If baby is more awake then I will wrap baby up.

This beautiful girl slept wonderfully for us so she didn’t need to be wrapped.  We will get beautiful images no matter if baby sleeps or not.

If you are expecting a new little one feel free to reach out. I would love to offer your family Indianapolis newborn photography if you are in the area. We can plan for a simple newborn session like this one or a full newborn session that includes additional set-ups, more time, and family pictures. Don’t hesitate to reach out if you have any questions.

Baby Girl Maven Jo – Indianapolis Newborn Pictures

I’ve adored photographing this family over the years! Their newest addition, Maven, is a doll baby. We did some fun baby boho set-ups for her and her siblings. And she even gave us an adorable little smile at one point. I’m very much looking forward to watching baby Maven grow over the next year along with her siblings.

So many adorable photos in all the different headbands and swaddles! I would love to be your Indianapolis newborn photographer.

Baby Piper – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

Sweet Piper has arrived and this family has been ready to meet her! I photographed the twin girls, her older sisters,  when they were born in 2016 (1st image). Piper has been long awaited and she is the family’s rainbow baby. As you can tell from the photos, she definitely has some of the same features as her older sisters. Weighing in just a little over 5 pounds, she is a little peanut. She is so so loved already and you can tell by the smiles on everyone’s faces! I am so glad that I was able to meet Piper and see the family again!

Baby Callum’s Outdoor Newborn Pictures – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

I always adore photographing this sweet family. This session was no exception. This family which previously had 3 girls just added their newest addition – a sweet baby boy. Meet little Callum. These guys were troopers waking up at sunrise for a little creek side outdoor newborn session, and it definitely did not disappoint. We had a glowing morning with some perfect summer weather. The most beautiful setting to photograph this growing family!

If you are expecting a little one during the summer months and would like to do an outdoor newborn photography session in Indianapolis don’t hesitate to let me know! If you are having a baby outside those summer months I would still love to be your Indianapolis newborn photographer as I have a studio as well!

Newborn Smiles – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

There is nothing better than a smiley baby and this little man definitely had them all. I often wonder what the kiddos are dreaming about when they are smiling and I was surprised to know just what was going on behind all of those smiles! Most often, when babies are first born they have reflex smiles- which babies actually do before they are even born! Normally for about the first two months, babies are reflex smiling, and then around that same time, real smiles start to take place! No matter if it is reflex or real, smiles are just adorable and I will gladly photograph them all!

Callen had all of the smiles and I was so glad to capture them all! I also did a maternity session as well, so I was glad to get to meet him. He definitely has a great head of hair as well. We were able to get some fantastic photos of all of his features. He is just the sweetest!

Lumberjack 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Indianapolis Photographer

Timber! This little handsome fella is ONE! We celebrated by having a Lumberjack cake smash theme with a little bit of wild one thrown in for good measure. I loved the way this theme came together and let’s talk about the adorable cake! I love the texture on it and how it looks so much like a log. Gosh, I just love working with this particular cake shop! There is a pull back shot at the end of the post where you can get a little behind the scenes glimpse of the set up for the cake smash. We definitely had a great time!

Purple Floral Boho 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

Boho anything, the color purple, and flowers are all some of my favorite things. So when you combine them all together and throw in a cute kid you are bound to get something amazing – this cake smash session!

Everything about this session bring me joy. This birthday girl was as happy as could to to eat her birthday cake. The cake was made special for her as it’s gluten and dairy free. I was assured by the birthday girl and her parents that even though it doesn’t have gluten or dairy the cake was still delish! It’s from a local cake shop called No Label at the Table. If you haven’t heard of it you should check it out! It’s run by employees who are all on the autism spectrum and the entire bakery is gluten and dairy free.

I digress about the cake, but enjoy these adorable pictures of this 1st birthday cake smash!

Rookie of the Year 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

This was a rookie of the year cake smash and this little man was adorable and fun to have in the studio! He was a happy little birthday boy, but when he had enough, that was it. No worries though, we still got lots of great pictures before that happened! I LOVED the coordinating outfits and the black/white combo was just perfect- down to his little shoes and mom’s too!

Baby Boy Finley – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

Finley James came to visit me in the studio for his newborn session and I am so glad that he did. I’ve been photographing this family since big sister, Vivian, was born. Big sis is very spirited, but she did great for pictures – Mom wasn’t so sure this would be the case. Finley was a doll even giving us a few smiles. I loved the coordination of everyone’s outfits and how photogenic the whole family was.
