Introducing Lily | The Kleiner Family | Westfield Newborn Photographer

I have been itching to share this session.  Sometimes it's so nice when a newborn client is more interested in having a documentary-type session rather than a full posed session.  I love both types of sessions but the lifestyle one is a little more laid back and relaxed.  It's all about capturing the moments as they are - baby snuggling with mom and dad, catching them gazing at baby, kissing and loving on her, and cementing this moment in time with photographs from those early days.  Did I mention that I LOVE lifestyle newborn sessions?? 

Miss Lily came into this world on June 30th. She was about 2 weeks old for our session but you would have thought she was 4-6 weeks old with how active she was.  Seriously - I tried to swaddle her in the beginning and she was Not. Having. It.  Nope.  So Plan B - dress her in a cutie outfit and put her in mom and dad's arms. 

I love the images we captured.  And how gorgeous is Beth (mom)????  You never would have known she had a baby in her belly just 2 weeks prior.  (:  Thank you Joe and Beth for inviting me into your home during this special (& crazy) time in your lives.

Summer Pregnancy | The Smith Family | Indianapolis Maternity Photographer

So there are some obvious downfalls of being pregnant during the hot summer months.  The heat, the sweating, the swelling.......BUT, if you can endure that and wear this amazing dress for a summer maternity session, I'd say it's all worth it.  (:  Kristen rocked this session like a pro (and rocked that dress)!  Her blonde hair glowed in the beautiful light and her dress was perfect for showing off that sweet baby bump. 

And....let's not forget Eric - he was pretty much the sweetest to his wife - snuggling her and getting into the moment.  I know they are so ready to add baby boy to their family in September.  I get the luxury of meeting him to for his newborn session.  So excited! 

Thanks to the Smith's for trusting me with your memories and I'll see you soon!

Daddy's Girl | The Skarbek Family | Zionsville Family Photographer

First, I hope Alyssa (mom) isn't mad at me for my title.  Two month old Addison would NOT take her eyes off of daddy during our session.  She would stare and stare at him, give him some googly eyes, smile at him and so on.  And the affection was not a one way street.  Ian (daddy) was more than smitten with his little girl.  Can we say wrapped around his finger already? 

This session instantly became one of my favs.  Downtown Zionsville is so peaceful in the morning.  We met early and the sun was rising, creating a beautiful light, and the happiness of this new family of three was radiating.  I wish I could have a session like this every morning to start my day.  Perfection. 

So I know we discussed Addison's affection for daddy above, but she definitely loves her mommy too.  We got some sweet shots of mom and daughter that I hope they will treasure forever. 

Thanks so much to the Skarbek's for trusting me with their memories.  Don't blink, because Addison will be running around before you know it.  (:

Morning Glow | The Chambers Family | Carmel Family Photographer

First - I love photographing this family.  I only had done it once before but it was a such a pleasurable experience that I was crossing my fingers that they loved it too and would come back to me.  And score, they did.  (:  I can't explain it entirely but the Chambers family is laid back, free-spirited, engaged with each other, and really just so fun to work with. 

Second, I'm a planner.  We had initially decided on downtown Carmel, back in the winter when Tara first scheduled the session. When I went to scope out the area there was so much summer construction I wanted to scream and reported back my frustration to them.  So we opted for another location that would suit the morning timeframe and was close to home for them, Founders Park.  I had never shot there before and did not have time to scope it out beforehand.  But I took a photographer friend's advice and went with it.  And I'm SO glad we did.  It was a beautiful summer morn and the light was so so yummy.  Mixed with the happy and sun-kissed Chambers family and it turned into a magical session.
