Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Elaina

I have been so looking forward to posting this session! Elaina is the last baby from my June baby boom and you guys, she was the PERFECT newborn to shoot. She slept so soundly the whole time we were moving her around, she didn’t fuss, she is just a happy little girl! Her parents are incredibly genuine and I enjoyed spending the morning with their family of 3.

Think pink. Think girly. There’s a whole lot of that coming your way!

I love everything about this image. The way you can see her curly little fingers, her sweet cheeks, her dark hair. There’s no denying it, Elaina is simply gorgeous! 

At the end of her session we popped into her nursery and it is DARLING. Elaina wanted to show off her cute bedding and got a little bit of love from her mama. 

I’m a sucker for antiques and heirlooms and smiling babies so this just picture perfect in my mind! Antique catalog drawer, Elaina’s mama’s baby blanket (made with love by Mary Kathryne’s grandma), and of course the best part, Elaina’s adorable grin. 

Her hair is so perfect!

Mary Kathryn and Eyad have this new parenting thing down. They seemed like old pros and I was impressed! 

Not going to lie, I love this bucket image! And that’s another one of her mama’s baby blankets. Love that.

So this is probably not the kind of prop you were expecting to see. Elaina’s great-grandma bought this outfit set decades ago (they think she was intending on using it for one of her own kids or grandkids) and Elaina had the honor of breaking it in as a surprise for her great-grandma. Doesn’t she look like a porcelain doll?

Sweet and simple. 

Squishy cheeks!

Eyad is a hands-on (diaper changing and all!) first time dad. He loves his baby girl so so much!

Beautiful baby girl.

Wide eyed and ready to hang out! Eyad, Mary Kathryn, and Elaina, thank you for letting me invade your home with all of my props and accessories. Elaina was such a great baby that I wound up staying longer than usual because she was so cooperative and sleepy. Worth it!! I cannot wait to see her again for her 6 month session! Congratulations on the new addition to your fabulous family!

Beth – How wonderful!! There is NO doubt she has your aritstic talent! Tell her that we all LOVE it! That one should be framed! Maybe she could do one for her Auntie Beth!!

Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Lydia

I have been looking forward to meeting this little girl for so long now! I remember when Steph told me she was pregnant and we immediately crossed our fingers for a girl and voila! She is just so perfect and I LOVED being able to snuggle her and work out some of my baby fever. 😉 I am so stinking excited to be able to photograph her first year. She is such a little doll baby and it’s going to be a blast to watch her grow!

Such creamy skin!

Baby toes are one of my biggest weaknesses! 

This little princess came out a bit chubbier than anyone was expecting, but still just oh so perfect! 

Her nursery is purple so we had to make sure to do a purple set-up for her. It’s definitely her color! 

A baby in a bucket. It had to be done and she slept like a champ through it!

I still can’t believe this kiddo is a big brother! If you asked him what his baby sister’s name was going to be, he would always say ‘Henry’. So here’s my favorite picture of Micah and Princess Henry. 😉 These guys are going to be the best of friends! 

‘No more pictures!’

Love a good ‘daddy/daughter’ shot. Stephen is just so smitten! 

She is seriously such a pretty baby. 

Poor baby girl… modeling is not an easy job! 

Stephen and Stephanie, thanks for letting me capture this upcoming year in your family. I cannot wait to see how much Lydia grows and changes over the next year. September will be here before we know it and we’ll have so much fun doing her 3 month pictures!

Here’s me teaching Lydia how to find the perfect selfie angle before she even left the hospital. Gotta start them young! 😉

I just love your work laura!! You will be our photographer for life 🙂 #ineedapreferredpluscard

Indianapolis Maternity Photographer | Mahan

I always love shooting couples and this awesome pair was no exception. Lindsay and Cory are expecting their first baby, a girl, and I had the privilege of spending the evening hanging out and getting to know them. Cory kept us all laughing and Lindsay could not be sweeter! They are going to make fantastic parents and I can’t wait to see them again when baby ‘R’ arrives! Lucky for me, they booked a ‘grow with me’ package so I’ve got a full year ahead of me of photographing this growing family!

They aren’t telling anyone the name, but wanted to get her first initial decoration included in pictures.

Oh my goodness, that smile of Lindsay’s just says it all. She is so smitten with her man. 🙂 

Lindsay is one gorgeous mama-to-be. You can’t even tell how disgustingly hot it was that night. She is rocking that new mama glow!

I don’t think I can emphasize how much I *love* dramatic black and white images. This one made me swoon. 

I’ve got my fingers crossed that baby girl Mahan will be a redhead like Cory. Redheaded babies are way too cute in my opinion!

These next two images are some of my favorites from their session.

Love that summertime haze! 

Who knows what he’s saying to her, but whatever it was, it worked! Look at that sweet smile! 

Cory and Lindsay, thanks so much for choosing me to capture this exciting year in your life. I am looking forward to meeting baby R in just a couple months and getting to watch her grow up! It’s going to be a fun year!

Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Baby H

Baby H was the first of 3 June newborns for me. I always enjoy newborn sessions because I can really take my time and who doesn’t love cuddling itty bitty babies?! I did baby H’s big sister’s newborn pictures and he did just as wonderfully as his sister. He is so easy going and slept like a champ!! He made my job easy!

 

Let’s kick things off with a smile!

Big sis, A, clearly adores her brother! 

It’s a rough life you guys.

He made so many great faces for me! 

See? He had so many different expressions! I always feel like jumping up and down when I catch a newborn smile. 

This is his mama’s hat she wore as a newborn. We took his sister’s picture in it too! Love special family touches like that! 🙂

Proud parents! Big sis was napping at this point in the day. 😉 Can’t wait to see how baby H changes over the next year. It’s going to be so fun to watch him to grow!!

I would like to be able to see Jessie’s senior pictures on my Computer. I will pay to be able to see them. Also I would like a price list so I can order some pictures.
I live in La. and was unable to get up there for her graduation. I saw some of the pictures on her facebook and they were great. Her natural beauty showed in the pictures.

Noblesville Senior Photographer | Emily

Emily just graduated from Noblesville this spring and I had a great time getting to know her and her mom during the session. She is so much fun and has a personality to match. 🙂 We stayed in Noblesville and just wandered around finding all sorts of great spots for pictures. Eventually her boyfriend showed up to keep us company too!

I always love shooting in Noblesville. There’s almost too many different options for backdrops!!

We made this black and white into a gorgeous canvas for her mom. I *love* when clients choose to order a canvas. It’s even better when I get to see where they put it and how they decorate with them. Instant wall art!

Ahhhh! I LOVE this wall. I stumbled upon it about 3 minutes before meeting up with Cathy and Emily. Love me some bright colors!! 

She’s got such a great laugh! 

One of my favorites!! 🙂

This one wound up being one of her mom’s favorites. The pop of color with her shoes is too fun! 

Adorable! Love this!

See what I mean? She has such a great laugh!! 

The light was perfecto on this evening! I’ve been lucking out with some great sunsets lately. Love Indiana in the summer!!

Ending on another favorite! Emily, thanks so much for choosing me to do these pictures for you! It was wonderful to get to know you and hear all about your future plans for college. Best of luck in the fall! 🙂
