Welcome to the world, sweet little man! If you are looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer or an Indianapolis maternity photographer I would love to be that person! Send me a message and let’s get your due date on my calendar!
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.
Happy 1st birthday Shaelyn! Thanks for allowing me to capture your first year of life.
If you are looking for an Indianapolis photographer don’t hesitate to let me know. I would love to be able to capture all the milestones in the lives of your family!
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!
Let’s capture the smiles of your new little one as well at an Indianapolis newborn photography session. Let’s chat and get your due date on my calendar!
Nice to meet you, sweet Finley! I am so glad that you and your family came to the studio for your newborn session! Please reach out if you are expecting and looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer.
This sweet little bundle of joy is Everett and I am so glad that I was able to meet him! The original plan was that I was going to be able to meet him right when he came into the world as I was the birth photographer- but then COVID happened….and we didn’t get to meet right away. He is such a precious little guy though and was a little less than 7 pounds when he was born. Meeting him at day 5 still was wonderful! He gave us a lot of really cute expressions and even a few smiles. You can just tell that his parents are so in love and excited that he made his arrival- exactly on his due date too!
Nice to meet you, Everett! I hope we get to see each other sometime soon.
Newborn photography is a great way to celebrate and commemorate the birth of a child. If you are interested in learning more about the packages that I offer, feel free to reach out. I would love to meet you and your little bundle of joy!
Marcella is ONE! To celebrate, her and her family visited me in the studio for a smashing good time- cake smashing to be exact! This really is the best way to celebrate a first birthday!! While this may have been a little untraditional for a pumpkin themed cake smash session, everything turned out great. I’ve done lots of pink and gold pumpkin smashes, but the colors in this palette were such unique fall colors and I just LOVED them! And the cake- I am just obsessed with it! It turned out so good! Little Marcella was not that big of a fan of the camera with the pre-cake portraits that we got, but she was all smiles after adding that cake!
Happy First Birthday, little pumpkin!
Thinking of celebrating your little one’s first birthday with a cake smash? Let’s do it together! I look forward to hearing from you today. Feel free to reach out if you are looking for an Indianapolis 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.
The SomeBunny is one theme was popular this year! Here is my 2nd little bunny that was in the studio for her first birthday cake smash session. She is as cute as could be with flowers and bunny ears. I’m also pretty obsessed with her floral birthday cake. She has a great smile and a wonderful head of hair. She was just so HOPPY to be in the studio for her first birthday cake smash!
Happy 1st birthday to this sweet bunny birthday girl!!
Let me know if you have a little one that needs birthday pictures. I adore 1st birthday cake smash sessions and I would love to be your Indianapolis photographer. <3
I can’t believe my baby girl is one. I know they say time flies but you don’t really feel it so deeply until it’s your little baby that grows up so quickly before your eyes.
I’ve always dreamed of having a little girl and I can’t believe this precious little one calls me mom (and yes, she has started saying Mom!). It was a longer wait then I had hoped to have her but she was WELL worth the wait and it makes having her in our lives even more precious.
Miss Brynn is a joy. Her laughs are amazing. Her cuddles are sweet. She loves deeply. She is curious about everything and gets into anything. She is opinionated and will tell you what she thinks about everything. She is strong willed like her Mama and passionate like her Papa. I have a feeling she will give us (and is already giving us) a run for our money but she will be one strong little lady – so watch out world.
Brynn’s cake smash session was done to match her nursery. You can see those pictures here if you are interested. I’ve done this for both my kids so that I can use the images later to decorate their nursery. I also use the images for thank you cards for their birthday party (print those pictures!).
At the end of the post I’ve included a video of all that went into this cake smash session. Be sure to check out the behind the scenes video if you are interested in all the madness. 🙂 I’ve also included a vendor list at the bottom of the post if you are interested in where everything came from.
I love photographing milestones of any type for families in the Indianapolis area! If you are looking for an Indianapolis photographer don’t hesitate to reach out and let me know.

I’ve had the joy of photographing all three boys in this family from birth until cake smash (and beyond). It’s been a joy watching each boy grow individually and also watching this wonderful family grow. I adore each of these boys and their parents. For Maclain’s first birthday cake smash session we decided on a Cat in the Hat theme and it was oh so cute!
Happy 1st birthday Maclain! It was a joy having you in the studio for the last year!!
I would love to photograph your little one(s)! If you are looking for an Indianapolis photographer please reach out. I would love to chat with you about getting a session on my calendar.
