Maternity + Fresh 48 | The Quinlan Family

The journey to parenthood isn’t always an easy one. And even though I don’t know details of the Quinlan’s journey, I know it was a long road. They were overjoyed to be pregnant and completely over the moon to set eyes on their new baby boy Patrick when he arrived in early January.

I had the luxury of taking their maternity photos back in the peak of fall and we had an adventure. Hands down one of my favorites maternity sessions ever. I chose a few new locations within a favorite park of mine, trying to take advantage of the amazing fall evening we had. Fall was peaking and the weather was warm for the end of October. It was so perfect for this deserving couple. Erica and Quin were so trusting and flexible in allowing me to trek them all over the park and well……the results were fantastic. Erica was especially stunning.

Fast forward to January: Patrick arrived on January 8th, one day before his due date. We had a Fresh 48 session in the hospital to document his sweet newness. Erica and Quin gazed lovingly at their baby boy and grandma and grandpa joined in with pics with their first grandbaby.

Welcome Patrick - you are so loved and you have already brought your parents and grandparents so much joy.

Thanks to Erica and Quin for sharing this special time with me and allowing me to be a part of it. I’m truly grateful to have been part of your journey.

Fall Mini Sessions | Indianapolis Family Photographer

It’s been a few years since I’ve blogged some mini sessions. My fall mini’s have become some of my most popular offerings - selling out fast the past couple years. I love mini days - fun, quick sessions at some of my fav locations. And even though the sessions are fast, I still am able to get a variety of shots and plenty of poses in a session. After doing this awhile, I have a typical flow for each session and it helps me rock them out to get great results in a short period of time.

The mini’s featured in this blog are from last November. It was a gorgeous fall day - in the 60’s and it was the last weekend of the beautiful fall foliage. The leaves literally all fell down 4 days later. All sessions were returning clients which truly makes for a fun day. I love meeting new clients but there is something about the feeling when a past kid client comes running up hugging me and calling me by name. That is where the important relationships are created.

I typically offer a couple dates of mini sessions in the spring and I have been offering three dates in the fall. If you are not a past client of mine and want to be notified first of mini offerings, reply with your info in the comments section of this post and I will add you to my newsletter. Newsletter recipients get first dibs on mini sessions before I open them up to the general public.

Perfect Morn | The Brown Family | Zionsville Family Photographer

I was worried when I woke up on an October morning and it was SUPER foggy. I had a session scheduled and was unsure how that fog was going to impact my location. It was abnormally warm and crazy enough mosquitoes were sticking around too with the damp, warm conditions. Were the fog, mosquitoes and humidity going to ruin this session?? And the answer to that: NO! The fog created a magical ambiance. The Brown’s came dressed for success and Kensley was the cutest 10 month old model I could have asked for. Thanks to the Brown family for trusting me with your memories.

The Roberts Crew | Indianapolis Family Photographer

I first photographed the Roberts family back in the fall of 2016 when their twin girls were 3 months old. And Thea was 18 months, Jase was 3 and Hailey was 9. Yes - one busy household. Fast forward a couple years and they definitely haven’t slowed down - and everyone has grown so much! This family session was fast-paced and fun. I think my favorite part was when I asked Jacob (with a little sarcasm) how it is having two 2-year olds in the house and said without hesitation (and without sarcasm) “Awesome.” The Roberts embrace their chaos because we all know how fleeting time is when your children are young. Savor it.

Alice and Midas | The Nelson Family | Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

For most of my newborn sessions there is one start of the show - the baby! But Midas the dog tried extremely hard to make himself the main attraction of the Nelson’s lifestyle newborn session. I will have to admit, he was quite cute in his bow-tie and it was hard to resist his big brown eyes glancing up at me. He added such a cute dynamic to this already adorable couple and their new baby girl, Alice. It was a perfect session - it has such a classic feel which is perfect for a baby girl with such a classic name. Thanks Katie and Ryan for inviting me into your home to capture this special time.
