Jack Landon – A Very Special Indianapolis Newborn Session

This is a VERY special newborn session because this session is of my little guy. I’m not going to lie, it wasn’t easy getting pictures of Jack. I was sleep deprived and not fully healed and I was learning how to be a mom. That being said, I knew I wanted to take my own in-studio newborn pictures. These pictures were taken over a series of 5 or 6 days. In the moment, it was hard to get the time and energy to take these images. In retrospect, I’m SOOO glad I did it even though it wasn’t easy! I’ll cherish these images for a lifetime and they mean even more to me since I took them. Don’t worry… I also hired a photographer to take some pictures too. I knew I wanted to be in some of the images. But the images in this blog post are just the ones that I took. I hope you enjoy meeting Mr. Jack. I’m sure there will be a lot more pictures of our little one to come.

This image wasn’t planned. I was taking pictures of Jack alone and Rosie decided she wanted to be in the pictures too. It ended up being one of my favorite images. labradoodle and newborn baby

I’m in love with this little guy in every way (seriously, I couldn’t imagine I could love him any more). I especially love his long fingers and toes, his adorably pink lips, his luscious eye lashes and full head of hair!!

This session wouldn’t have been complete without at least one Butler related images. If you knew my husband and his family you would know that this image was completely necessary… Butler University newborn photography pictures - Butler Basketball included mini labradoodle and baby in a basket Butler basket ball, newborn baby, and labradoodle puppy - it doesn't get more prefect

Our mini labradoodle pup (Rosie) isn’t normally allowed in the the studio. However for this extra special newborn session we made and exception and she made herself at home!

I went outside 3 different nights in order to get this image. Jack’s witching hour seemed to be right around sunset every night. But I’m persistent and we made it happen!outdoor newborn picture - baby in a basket at sunset

Jack is VERY expressive. He will let you know what he thinks about everything. These pictures all took place over the course of less then 5 minutes.

I’ll be back from maternity leave on July 10th (very soon – maybe too soon). So if you are expecting and looking for an Indianapolis newborn photographer I would love to get your due date on my calendar.
