Time Flies 1st Birthday Cake Smash

Time sure does fly that first year of baby’s life. And that was the theme for this cake smash session. We took the literal flying approach with airplanes and hot air balloons. There were also clouds, sun and stars. I’m a little bias but I’m kind of obsessed with how it all turned out.  This little man made it so much better with his adorable teethy smile!

Mauve is One – Floral Blush Cake Smash Session

I love working with babies and kids and creating priceless memories for their families.  I had the pleasure of creating a floral blush cake smash session to celebrate Mauve turning one!  She seemed to love the cake and it was so cute when she had all of the pink frosting all over her face.  She did not hesitate to dig right in! While she enjoyed playing with her cake and the #1 on it, she was willing to share some of the cake as you will see towards the end of this post.  She is such a sweet little girl!

Sweet Little Lady – Carmel Indiana Newborn Photography

This sweet little lady was a joy to have in the studio.  I’ve had lots of little boys in the studio lately so it was fun mixing it up with a girl!  She slept well for the session and gave us cute little smiles as well.  She gave us some open eyed photos as well and they are just adorable!  She looked so cute in all of the different headbands and hair accessories.  She is definitely the apple of her parents eyes!

Lumberjack 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

Noah is one!  To celebrate his birthday, we put together a “Wild One” Buffalo plaid session and it turned out adorable!  This was the first time that I have done this theme and I just loved it.  I’ve photographed this little guy and his brother since birth. It is bittersweet for me that he is one as I won’t get to see him as often as I have this first year of his life!  It was clear that Noah loved his cake and turning one!

Baby Girl Palmer – Fishers Newborn Photographer

I’ve been photographing this family since big brother, Preston, was born over 4 years ago. It’s been a joy to watch him grow from a tiny newborn to adorable fun loving 4-year-old. So when this family told me they were expecting again I was thrilled! I’m thrilled that I get to watch Preston turn into a big brother (which he is crushing!) and thrilled to get to watch this beautiful little lady grow over the coming years!

Sweet little Palmer is a great addition to the family and I just know that she will love her big brother as much as he loves her!

Boho 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session with Flowers, Tepee, and Macrame

It’s bittersweet seeing this baby girl turn one. It’s been so much fun watching her grow over the last year. But her cake smash session was one to remember! She is such a happy easy going baby and she loved her cake!! Normally cake smash sessions end in tears for one reason or another. But not this sweet girl!! She was digging in until we took that cake away and she was okay with it being taken away. My favorite part was when she went in head first and just started eating. So stinking cute!

Be sure to check out the video at the end to see how all the behind the scenes magic happens.

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!
