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.

A Very Bunny Birthday – 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

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!

Brynn’s 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Plum, Blue, and Green 1st Birthday Setup

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.

Maclain’s Cat in the Hat Dr. Seuss First Birthday Cake Smash Session

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!

Holden Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photographer

I adore this family! I’ve been photographing this sweet family since they got engaged and then I photographed their wedding, newborn pictures for this little guy and a few moments in-between. They are just the sweetest and they sure do make cute kiddos!! One of my favorite things about my job is being able to watch families grow. I don’t have a ton of clients that I’ve watched from engagement to kids!

This little guy’s cake smash theme came from his diaper cover. It was all sorts of fun party colors that we pulled into the backdrop and cake topper. This little birthday boy sure did love his 1st birthday cake.  He seemed to have a great time with the cake and the smash.  He was as curious as can be with everything going on and I am so glad that I got to celebrate his first birthday with him!
