A Squishy Little Rainbow Baby – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Baby Jonathan joins his family as a special rainbow baby and he is just perfect! His older sisters just love having him around and we were able to get some really wonderful photos of everyone together! I just love the neutral tones in the families outfits and this is what I encourage clients to wear as it really compliments my studio well.

When you book your newborn session and baby arrives, I send an email that has a lot of really helpful information in it. It gives outfit recommendations and also a questionnaire so that I can customize each session to each client. It really makes sure that my clients have the session that they hoped for and that everything goes smoothly. I like to make sure that families feel well supported and encouraged throughout the time of booking through the delivery of the photos- every step is important and especially when working around the important and wonderful milestone of a newborn baby with photos that will last a lifetime!

A little rainbow baby girl – Zionsville Newborn Photography

Meet Kleine Austin. Kleine joins this beautiful family and is the first little girl! I have had the pleasure of photographing all three of these kiddos and I was glad to see them all again! Middle brother was not too excited about the photos, but I am not sure that he can be blamed- his whole world has been rocked.  Needless to say, we made it all work out well!
I was said to hear that this family had a miscarriage after baby #2 but I am honored to be able to captured this rainbow baby for this family! What a beautifully perfect family.

Baby Girl Maizie – Zionsville Newborn Photography

I just finished photographing big sis’s 1st year and I’m excited to photograph this family for another year with the birth of another sweet little girl, Maizie! Big sister, Rory, did so good and is such a great big sister! Rory is 13 months old so the two girls are very close in age. Maizie has a purple and yellow nursery so we did a lot of images to match the nursery. This will be great so that the images can be printed to decorate the nursery! Purple and yellow is not a common color combo for me, but it was a fun one. I just love how the photos turned out!

Irish Twins – Zionsville Newborn Photography

Irish Twins. A phrase that is not super common these days, but it still happens and that is the case for this beautiful family! Irish twins are when two children are born within 12 months of each other! This brother and sister combo is just that! I have seen a lot of this family lately because we did a cake smash session for big sister, a maternity session, and then the newborn session all within the same month! It was WONDERFUL!
I love all of the photos that we were able to get and just adore the one with the name prop. These will make super cute announcements- although I think that every photo would be perfect for an announcement!

Our Rainbow Baby – Little Luka Lane

It’s been a LONG journey to get this little guy here. If you have followed my story you know that getting pregnant has never been easy for us. It takes a lot of time and probably some luck. We were able to get pregnant a little less then two years after my middle child was born. Unfortunately, that pregnancy ended in a very traumatic 2nd trimester miscarriage at 17 weeks. After the miscarriage we went on to see a fertility specialist (I can’t say enough good things about Dr. Jarrett at Indiana Fertility Institute) who helped us get pregnant again and helped us avoid a miscarriage. The protocol after getting pregnant included daily injections of a blood thinner throughout my pregnancy. Giving myself a daily shot in the stomach was not something I ever though I could or would have to do. But when you want something enough you can do anything. I wanted to complete my family and this little guy was worth EVERY.SINGLE.SHOT.

I’m so excited that Luka is here and I’m almost as excited that I’ll never have to be pregnant again – ha! While my family is complete I’ll forever be an advocate and supporter for those dealing with infertility and miscarriage. If you (whoever you are) ever want to talk I can always make time for lunch.

Little Luka was born on 5/25/22. He is tall and skinny (maybe my husband will get his basketball player after all) and as cute as can be. Luka means “to light” or “the light” and so his first and middle name put together (Luka Lane) means “to light the path/way”. I love that and I just love him to pieces. So far this little guy has been super easy going (being a 3rd child that might just be out of necessity) and he is full of smiles.

Siblings 13 Months Apart – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Clara made her arrival and she is a cutie! Her big brother is only 13 months old. It feels like just yesterday I took his newborn pictures. He was so well behaved during the session, he did better than most two year old’s do during his session- and he isn’t even two!
Clara looked adorable in everything we put her in, but I have to admit, the photo with the pink and white lace in the background is probably my favorite! Mom loved previous photos with floral headbands so we made sure to take a lot of those! I do have quite the supply of headbands and props for families to use when they come to the studio!
My sister and I are 13 months apart. So it’s fun seeing siblings with the same age gap. As kids, we fought like cats and dogs and were very different. Now we are best friends. We are still different in many ways, but those differences suit us well. I think it also helps that we don’t live with each other too – ha.
I’m excited to see these two grow over the years and watch their relationship develop!

A Mother’s Bond With Baby and a Smile to Melt Your Heart – Zionsville Newborn Photography

The moment I handed this little girl to her mom for the first pictures (mom and baby poses) she gave us a huge smile. It’s clear this little girl recognized and loves her mom already. It really is amazing on how babies know their mom right from the beginning of life!
Meet Leighton. This beautiful 6 pound, 13 ounce baby girl is the perfect addition to their family! She joins her mom and dad, and big brother, Blake who is 4!  We were able to get so many wonderful shots from our time together and it is hard to choose a favorite. I do LOVE the first image below, but I also LOVE the photo of mom, Leighton, and Blake together- with Blake looking at his mom. It is just precious!
And let’s talk about all of the sweet little macro shots of Leighton and her adorable features- GAH! So cute!

Working With Two Year Olds – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

You never know what you are going to get out of a two year old. They can be scared or hesitant of me (a stranger), straight up defiant, tearful, or bouncing off the wall crazy. Their reactions can vary from moment to moment and they can have all these reactions during one session. Anyone who has had a two year old knows that you just don’t know what you are going to get sometimes.

The good news is, I have lots of tools in my tool box for all the crazy reactions that toddlers can send my way. My years in college working at a preschool prepared me for just this! The even better news is that I didn’t have to use any of these tricks for this beautiful big sister! She was as sweet as could be and loved her newborn sister. She enjoyed having her picture taken and being the center of attention. She was also a cute as could be. What more could I ask for?! I know – a cooperative newborn. Guess what?! We had that too! This was a sweet session all around (so was their maternity session) and I’m excited to watch this adorable family grow for years to come.

This little lady’s sweet mama really wanted soft colors (my favorite!). So that’s what we did – lots of white on white, soft pinks (to match her nursery) in both wraps and flowers, and soft purples. We also did lots of macro shots (close ups of baby’s features). For macro shots I typically give these to the clients in both color and black and white. However, I’m personally always drawn to the black and white version of these images. Check out the last  few images for examples of this.

A Brand New Baby SISTER! – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

These four handsome boys added a sweet baby sister to their crew! This was a super fun session and the boys were super over the top in love with their new little sister. They couldn’t keep their hands off of her and they wanted to love on her the whole time. They all insisted on taking a picture of each of them along with their new baby sister as well. The big brothers would fight over who would get to hold the baby during the different shots. Eliana Grace is going to be very loved and protected with all of these people watching over her!
The backlit images with the 4 boys and the baby is one of my all time favorite images.
The family added on an outdoor session (images at end of post). It was a fall day with crazy unpredictable weather but we were able to shoot  (Thank goodness because they drove 1.5 hours to get to the shoot) and the images ended up stunning!

Baby Girl Ruby Katherine – Zionsville, IN Newborn Photographer

Meet baby girl Ruby Katherine. She was a sweet as sweet can be. We captured her sweetness among other sweet things – pineapple. This little lady’s mom collects all things pineapple. When she came to her session she brought 3 pineapples with and asked if we could photograph baby with them. I was up for the challenge as that was a new request for me! I’m kind of excited with the end result that you can see below.

After having a pregnancy loss of my own, rainbow babies (babies after a pregnancy loss) have held a special place in my heart. Every time I have a rainbow baby in the studio it gives me hope for my future family. During this session we did some pictures to celebrate the fact that this little one is also a rainbow baby. I hope these images give other moms out there the same hope and joy I have for this sweet girl and her family.  sleeping newborn girl - newborn photography newborn baby with pineapples newborn in box ranbow baby newborn photography pose newborn photography with all white family shots with newborn baby newborn girl on hand knit blanket
