Indianapolis Children’s Photographer | Jackson 6 Months

I met this ridiculously cute little dude back in the fall. I’ve been keeping him company (aka nannying) during the sloooow cold winter months. Not many  outdoor sessions get booked during Indiana winters! To celebrate Jackson turning 6 months I brought over all my gear and we had a photoshoot day. I was so glad to have a chance to get some updated pictures of my favorite little man! Thank goodness for my sweet husband who built my ‘little’ portable studio. That thing has come in so handy over the past year.

Let’s start things off with a smile!

I seriously cannot get over how blue his eyes are!

Jackson has a big decision ahead of him. Will he be a Cubs fan…

…or cheer for the Tigers? Talk about a family divided!! 😉 

He is such an expressive guy! This is just one of many faces he regularly makes. 

My FAVORITE. 

I’m so glad I found these suspenders! I’m adding them to my accessory collection. Don’t be afraid to ask to use them in your session. 

Just the sweetest little toes.

I’m so glad Jackon’s mom, Jennie, hopped in for a few quick pictures with her little guy! I love this one. 

Strong lash game! 

He decided the novelty of being in a bucket was pretty overrated and quickly started playing with the blanket. It was cute while it lasted! 😉

Well hey there handsome! This sweet face of his has gotten him so many extra kisses and snuggles over the past few months. He is the most snuggly, happy, playful little guy. He loves to be held and I’m not going to lie, I’m a bit of a sucker when it comes to holding him! He’s too cute to put down! 

I am so thankful to have found such a wonderful family to work for during my slow season. It’s been so fun to watch Jackson grow right before my eyes! I already miss him!!

Indianapolis Children’s Photographer | Baby H

I always love catching up with my littlest clients and this handsome kid never fails to rock his sessions! He has grown so much since his last session (4 months) and I get sad thinking there’s just one more session left in his Grow with Me package. Ok, ok, enough jabbering… check out his sweet pictures!

Who doesn’t love a baby in tie?!

I absolutely love his hair! 

One of my favorites! I love his serious profile. Just too precious. 

When his mom said she had a romper for H to wear I knew it was going to be adorable. She always plans great outfits! 

Don’t you want to squeeze those cheeks?!

I’m pretty sure H is a real life Cabbage Patch doll. 

We had to get big sis, A, in some pictures too! She was more than happy to oblige as long as she could borrow her brother’s hat. These two are so cute!

He is the happiest little cherub!

See the picture on the wall behind them? That was from A’s 6 month session so we had to recreate the smooshy kiss for H!

I think my favorite outfit for little boys is overalls. Just overalls. Nothing cuter!

FEET!

Look.At.Those.Rolls! ;D

Baby H, I cannot believe how much you’ve grown! You are just as sweet as the first time I got to meet you. I am so looking forward to your 1 year session this summer! I can’t wait to see how much you’ll change by then. 🙂

Indianapolis Family Photography | Henricksen-Leist Families

It’s not too often that families request sessions in the dead of an Indiana winter. What’s even crazier is that a chunk of this group is from California and they were STILL happy to document their visit despite the extra cold temperatures. That sounds like an AWESOME family to me! We knocked out this fun session in less than 30 minutes. After all, I didn’t want anyone to freeze!

Aren’t they a gorgeous family!?

The Henricksen clan are the Indiana dwellers. Totally used to cold temperatures! Even their adorable dog, Annie Rose, braved the chill!

I love their love! Any couple who has been married this long, have two teenagers, and can still look at each other like this gets a lot of respect from me. 🙂

The three amigos! Mary, Rich, and Kathryn are all siblings. Can’t you tell?? Strong genes!

Cousin love.

You guys, I have had the privilege of meeting Sally (their sweet mom) a few times and she truly has a heart of gold!

The men!

What a glamorous group of ladies! So so pretty! 

I don’t know of many teenagers who are not only willing to take pictures, but do so this sweetly! Also, I’m pretty sure Peter and Gracie completely skipped over their awkward teen phase. Mine lasted much longer than I’d like to admit. 😐

I knew this would be my favorite as soon I shot this group hug. <3

Rich and Katherine got Baby Jax got a brand new snow suit just for his trip to the mid-west. I’m not gonna lie, I was feeling pretty jealous of his warm getup by the end of the shoot!

Could they look more alike (spoken like Chandler Bing…we’re rewatching Friends right now 😉 )?!

All together!

This was a such a fun session to do! I grew up in a very close-knit family and have a soft spot for families who genuinely love being together. I think the cold was well worth these captured memories!

Indianapolis Children’s Photographer | Elaina 6 Months

Last year I added some Grow With Me options to my newborn packages and I am so glad I did. It has been a blast seeing all these tiny little ones growing over the past year. Elaina was a rockstar at her newborn session and she was on best behavior again for her 6 month session. This little lady is so precious I was excited to see her and her sweet parents again.

All of the faces she made cracked me up. She is one expressive little lady!

Getting smothered in kisses! Her parents adore her. At her newborn session Eyad and Mary Kathryne were both very hands on and wanted to be involved and they were the same this time around. It’s clear to see that Elaina has completely stolen their hearts!

I could just pinch those cherub cheeks of hers! 

We took advantage of the holiday season and got some cute pictures of Elaina in her darling Christmas dress. 

I love this one and all of Elaina’s roly poly cuteness! 

Someone was super excited to get back to pictures after a little snack break! 😉

Tootsie time! 

She what I mean about her expressions?! Too funny!

She is seriously just as sweet as she looks! This one is my favorite! 🙂
Elaina, it was wonderful to see you again and how much you’ve grown! Eyad and Mary Kathryne, I cannot wait for Elaina’s first birthday shoot. I’m betting it’s going to sneak up on all of us! 🙂
