Tattoos + Graffiti + Cuteness = Perfection | Different is Good | Indianapolis Family Photographer

This is a throwback session from last August - another one that I've been itching to blog since I wasn't yet a blogger back then.  This session took some planning but I was more than happy to spend the extra time for my brother and sis-in law, Vinny and Monica, to help celebrate their daughter Mia's first birthday.  First thing they told me is that they wanted something different.  Not the normal sunset in the park session. So after some brainstorming, I knew exactly what I wanted to do - we just had to find the right locations.  The first portion of the session had to involve graffiti and we found the perfect spot. 

The second half of the session didn't pan out like we hoped (there were supposed to be fountains and mermaid outfits but bad weather and locked gates got in our way).  But we carried on and actually, got some really great shots of Mia (one of which is on my business cards).  You can't go wrong with Mia - she always has this matter-of-fact look on her face and then when you dress her up in a cute outfit and she smiles - well, freaking adorable. 

It's appropriate that I'm getting around to writing this blog now, because I will be photographing Vinny and Monica's new arrival in about a month.  And again - they want something unique and something different - something that is....them.  So stay tuned for that - planning is underway!!

On to the throwback...

Thanks to Vinny and Monica for trusting my creative endeavors and wanting to do something different - love the challenge!  I'm looking forward to photographing your family for years to come!
