MVP Sports 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This handsome birthday boy was very stoic and made me work for smiles. I didn’t mind one bit because he had some great non-smiling faces too! He had a raised brow look that just cracked me up. He is clearly full of personality!!

For this birthday boy, we did an MVP sports themed cake smash session. It was very fitting for him because his mom played collegiate sports and his dad played professional basketball overseas. Something tells me that this sweet boy is going to be a sports player but his parents aren’t forcing one sport on him. He has the whole world of sports open to him (at least for his first birthday cake smash session). While we didn’t get many ear-to-ear grins, it was clear that he enjoyed this sports themed cake smash. He sure did like to eat all that frosting!

This was my last session before going on maternity leave. It took place 3 days before my due-date and I went into labor the day after this session. I did take a behind the scenes video of this session and I’m looking very pregnant in it! But it’s still super fun and it’s at the end of this post of you are interested in seeing what all goes into one of these sessions.

Pastel Rainbow Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I’ve had the pleasure of watching this sweet girl grow over the last year. She was a doll so it was only fitting that her first birthday session start of with her wearing her dol! In all seriousness, the Doljanchi (or dol) is a traditional Korean 1st birthday outfit. It’s a sweet tradition that I was happy to capture for this family. We followed up the session with a sweet cake smash session with a pastel rainbow theme. Such a sweet session and an adorable little birthday girl!

Jack is Three – Vehicle Themed Birthday Session

I can’t believe my baby is three!! This year has flown by, but that seems to be the new normal now. Over the last year Jack has turned from a toddler to a little boy. He went from saying words and putting together sentences to telling full on elaborate stories. My sweet boy will talk your ear off about anything to anyone. Seriously, this kid has never met a stranger. He loves people and would spend all day with anyone who will give him attention and listen to his stories. He loves to read and be read to. One of his favorite activities is gong to the library. Right now we are working on numbers and letters and it’s been super fun to see his start to catch onto these concepts. He is a sponge right now and it’s amazing. His favorite person right now isn’t Mama, but Aunt Kathy. At least that is what he says… I’m not sure I’m buying it. His favorite color changes every time you ask him but normally it changes between blue and green. He recently became a big brother and is the best with his little sister. When he grows up he says he wants to be a “fire truck”. He is super into anything with wheels – Hotwheels, trucks, buses, diggers, cars, really anything. That is why for his third birthday pictures we did a vehicle themed session.

I know I’m a little late to the game in posting these birthday pictures, but I used the images on the thank you cards for his party and I wanted them to be a surprise for those receiving them.

I love this little boy with all my heart and watching and capturing him growing over the last three years have been amazing. I would love to photograph your little one(s) too. If you are looking for an Indianapolis photographer be sure to reach out and let me know.

Garden Themed 1st Birthday Cake Smash Photography – Indianapolis Photographer

I’ve adored photographing this sweet girl over the last year! She has always been such a happy little one and her baby rolls and big smile are just to die for.

For her last session of the year, we did a garden themed cake smash session to celebrate her first birthday. Normally, by the end of  a cake smash session the little ones are over it. It’s a little over stimulating and no matter how much they like they cake they are just done and in tears. However not this birthday girl! We had to drag her away from that cake, big smile and all.  All of the details from the cake, decor, and her cutest little outfits all came together for an adorable session!

Baby Brynn – The Photographer’s Kid – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

I just start shooting clients (only clients who were booked before we knew we were pregnant – so milestone sessions) again two weekends ago and I’m about to come back from maternity leave (meaning I’m taking new clients) full time here shortly. So I thought it’s about time I show you some pictures of our new baby girl!

Meet baby Brynn. We loved this little one before she was born, but we love her even more now that she is here. She is perfect (I know we are bias) in every way and she looks so much like her big brother. So far she has been a very easy going little lady. She loves to nurse and cuddle but she is also content on her play mat or watching whatever craziness her brother is getting into.

It’s no surprise that baby Brynn is one very photographed baby. I know that and I LOVE that. If you know me, you know that my memory isn’t the best. I can’t remember names or dates or details for the life of me. It’s just how I’m built and I’ve come to accept that. I want to remember every single detail of life right now. I love these two kiddos (and my husband) with every fiber of my being. Life right now isn’t always easy but it is always rewarding. This is why I take (and I have others take) so many pictures. I don’t think I’ll ever look back the the pictures and say “Oh man I have way too many pictures of my children.”

I’m not going to lie, taking these pictures of baby Brynn was no easy task… I wasn’t feeling the best and taking pictures of your own kids is way harder then taking pictures of other people’s kids! But I’m SO glad I took the time to do them. I’ll forever cherish all the images of my sweet babies. All the images in this post are images that I took. So I am not in any of the pictures. But know that I had some other great photographers in the area take pictures that I am in. I think it’s not only important to take pictures of your kiddos but also take pictures of you with your kiddos. Your kids are going to want to remember you too. You are their world right now – capture that!

Boho Flower Cake Smash Session for 1st Birthday – Indianapolis Photographer

It’s no surprise that I love babies and nature mixed together. I love shooting newborns/kids outside and I love bringing floral elements into the studio. I also love neutral colors. So this session was a lot of fun for me and it might be one of my favorite cake smash sessions to date!

This little birthday girl had a boho themed cake smash session with pink/blush floral hoops. She loved her cake and was perfect in front of the camera. I love her little feet in the cake and how she just leaned over to eat the cake topper – so stinking cute!!

Be sure to make it all the way to the end of this post. You won’t want to miss the video of this little birthday girl during her cake smash session!!!

Brunnemer Twins – Indianapolis Twin Newborn Photographer

Meet the Brunnemer twins. You may remember their parents from their stunning maternity session a month or so back. These beautiful girls were so much fun to have in the studio. They were tiny and sleepy for their session and they let us take as many pictures as we liked!  Babies Mila and Gianna are just the cutest and they were so snuggly with each other – which is sure to be a sign of the lifetime of closeness that they will have as twin sisters!  They had the most adorable facial expressions and were great in front of the camera.  Mom and dad are so excited to have these little princesses in their lives. Some of my favorite pictures from the session are the ones of the girls with their parents. I just love how much love they have for their beautiful girls already. So sweet!

Baby Girl Lydia Jean – Noblesville Newborn Photography

Sweet little Lydia Jean was supposed to be born on January 1, 2019 but she just could NOT wait any longer and made her arrival into the world on December 31, 2018.  What a difference a day makes!  This adorable little cutie is just so precious.  We had lots of neutral set ups and she did not disappoint when it came to providing us with some sweet baby smiles!

Bee 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

I always love when clients send me new ideas for cake smash sessions. This one was so much fun to design and photograph. This little cutie wanted a bee themed session but more of an abstract bee theme and not a bunch of bees on the backdrop. I adore how this turned out and I think it’s the perfect mix of abstract bee with the adorable bee cake topper that really communicates the idea without being over the top.

This cutie has been coming to the studio since she was born. During every session we have also included the family’s first (fur) baby. So it was only fitting that the fur baby was included in the first birthday cake smash session (sorry – no cake for the pup).

Baby Kora – Carmel Newborn Photographer

Meet sweet baby Kora. This sweet girl happens to belong to one of my best friends! It was a joy to be one of the first to meet this little one and to be able to photograph this time in the lives of some great friends. I just love how big sister Ada already adored her new baby sister. They were the sweetest together. Ada and Jack (my son) are close in age and are really good friends. My new little baby (baby Brynn) is just a few weeks younger in age as baby Kora. I’m so excited to see all these kiddos grow up together and become friends just like their parents!
