Happy Birthday Boy – Blue Ombre Cake Smash Session

Who needs elaborate themes or fancy characters when a single color can bring a burst of wonder? This session proved that simplicity can be downright fabulous! We did a blue ombre cake smash session and it was just perfection. Sessions do not always have to have themes or characters- just a color can be a […]

Newborn Boy All In Blue – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This was such a sweet loving family. Everyone, especally big brother, was so excited about the new baby boy. Family pictures with a newborn baby are always a joy, but they are extra special when everyone is so excited about the baby. Big brother couldn’t keep his hands off of his baby. He is going […]

Boho Sunshine Cake Smash Session- KristeenMarie Photography

This adorable little man is one and we got to celebrate! We did a boho take on the “you are my sunshine” theme. There was also a small rainbow added in as an ode to this guy being a rainbow baby. The birthday boy is the third baby in the family that I have photographed […]

Sweet Baby Girl’s Sitter Session – Westfield, IN Child Photography

This sweet baby girl was all smiles for her sitter session at 8 months old. She had the BEST baby rolls. I mean look at those cheeks, wrists and ankles. Just. The. Best! Such a fun little session with one of my favorite families. I loved her sweet little outfits and her curly hair. I […]

A White Winter ONEderland Cake Smash Session

This theme is really popular- winter ONEderland- but I love it! I enjoyed the pops of trees and twinkling lights that we used. This was mom’s choice- she wanted a white take on this theme with lots of lights and I think that it turned out ONEderful!! The sweet birthday girl got messy and full […]

Black and Gold Mr. ONEderful 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

I would estimate that about 70% of the babies that come into the studio don’t really like to eat the cake. They may take a bite or two but cake is not like foods they are exposed to on a daily basis and so it’s not really something they are used to. There is also […]

Rookie of the Year 1st Birthday Cake Smash – Indianapolis Cake Smash Photographer

This little Rookie of the Year is one! This isn’t a new theme/set-up for me, but this sweet birthday boy’s cake smash session was a home run. I can’t get over his sweet curls, big brown eyes, big smile and baby rolls. Lots of kiddos at one don’t really like to play with birthday cake. […]

10 Tips for a Successful Sitter Session

I don’t share a ton of pictures from sitter sessions as often as I would like. Not because I don’t love them, but just because there aren’t enough hours in the day to share everything. So I thought I would do an informative post about sitter sessions and share a few sessions all in one. […]
