Free | Violet | Indianapolis Family Photographer

First, I was elated to shoot at this location again.  It's so vibrant and unique.  It's not a typical family session location, but I love the way the colors pop in the background.  Add a beautiful couple and their sweet baby girl, it's pretty much perfect.  Mom shared with me that baby Violet had been on oxygen 24/7 since birth and just recently was able to graduate from having constant tubes and an oxygen tank attached to her.  They wanted to commemorate this milestone and her newfound "freedom" with a photo session.  The entire family rocked out this session - I think it only lasted 50 minutes but I ended up delivering over 115 images (because I LOVED them all!), which was a record for a family session.

A Breath of Fresh Air | Baby Owen

Traditional newborn sessions are held in-home or in my studio.  So when the Neikirk's suggested holding their session outdoors, for a casual, candid session, I was so excited.  Late May brought some really warm weather, which was perfect for our sunset session (babies like it hot - they were cooking in mom's belly at 98.6 degrees for 9 months).  The light, the warmth, and the gushing love over their newborn baby boy all made this session come together so nicely. (:

Light + Love | The Smith Family | Carmel Family Photographer

I'm always amazed when a family can get multiple people up and picture-ready for an early morning photo session.  (I know when I wake up I'm always so glad all I have to do is put my contacts in and slap on some casual clothes - no make up needed here! You're welcome clients - I make you look good!!)  (:  Eric and Kristen managed to get themselves ready, as well as 9 month-old Theo, and teens Cayden and Conner.  And the dogs joined us too!  They all looked amazing and we had a wonderful session.  Kristen's parents even drove up from Bloomington to join us at the end.  Thanks to the Smith's for once again trusting me with their memories.

9 Months | Molly | Indianapolis Lifestyle Photographer

I do shoot a lot of lifestyle sessions, but they typically are for newborns.  So when the opportunity arose to photograph the Large family with their sweet 9 month old Molly in a lifestyle format, I was excited.  Our session was on a bright Sunday Mother's Day morning and we began our session by waking Molly from her morning nap.  And newsflash....she wakes up super happy! 

Mom and Dad just wanted to capture their "little darling" as she is now - smiley, giggly and oh so wiggly!  You can see from many of the images she was trying to squirm her way out of mom and dad's arms.  She didn't mellow out until her mid-morning milk when we were able to end the session snuggling on the front stoop. Thanks so much to the Large's for sharing their sweet Molly with me.
