The Crawford Family ~ Greenhouse Photography Session ~ Kokomo & Zionsville Indiana Photographer

Greenhouse sessions are my new fav. Not only do they allow us an “outdoor” atmosphere with the benefits of an indoor environment, but they allow us to do sessions during almost anytime of day since most greenhouses offer the perfect amount of shade.

Altum’s Greenhouse in Zionsville kindly allows photographers to use their gorgeous space upon request. Their location boasts a HUGE variety of succulents and exotic plants (including 6′ fiddle fig leaf trees which I feel like are crazy hard to find).

Their beautiful variety of plants makes for the perfect backdrop with so many pops of color and textures. Plus you can grab some adorable handmade pottery on your way out! I don’t think I’ve managed to slip in and out of their shop yet without leaving with something.

Here are some of my favorites from The Crawford Family’s sessions.

Kokomo Indiana Family Photography ~ McKillip Maternity Session

Spring means…spring babies! It also means warm tones, later sunsets, and lots of green goodness.

While it’s still early in the season for all of the budding trees and tall green grass, we were still able to find some color during the McKillip family’s session. It was coooooold that day, it actually snowed the night before! Thankfully that was the last snow we’ve seen this spring(fingers crossed).

The McKillip family welcomed their sweet little boy into the world last week and I’m looking forward to seeing them again soon for their newborn session. Here are some of my favorites from their maternity photography session in Kokomo Indiana.

It’s spring time! And I am adoring all of these greenhouse photography sessions. I’ve been searching high and low for the perfect greenhouse and Salsbury Garden Center is where it’s at. I love their assortment of flowers and it has the perfect vibes for a spring time family photography session.

Come visit me at the Kokomo Indiana photography studio or send me an email at jessicabnewton@gmail.com to book your own greenhouse family session. Happy spring!

All of these spring babies you guys. There are few things that I love more than styling little babies in outfits and props with fresh greenery or flowers. When it’s spring time I get to do this a lot, so I’m definitely in my happy place right now.

At the Downtown Kokomo Indiana Photography Studio, we can create some of the most unique and dreamy images of newborns and their families. I definitely pride myself on picking and choosing pierces that are one of a kind, because your baby is one of a kind and deserves the same.

If you’d like to book your own newborn photography session, I’d love to hear from you! Contact me on our contact page or email me at jessicabnewton@gmail.com for details.

Motherhood mini sessions are coming up fast and I am sooooo excited for them! They balance the perfect amount of boho and farmhouse, with classic colors and tones for timeless photos.

This setup is meant to be displayed around your home and the portraits will match almost any paint color in your house. These are meant for your children to love and enjoy as they grow! Something that I love about prints, because our prints have a shelf life of 100-200 years(pretty incredible).

I can NOT with all of these greenhouse sessions you guys! It’s seriously my new favorite thing. The light, the colors, the smells, it’s a new trend that I feel starting.

I’ve been fond of Altum’s greenhouse in Zionsville Indiana but our own little greenhouses in Kokomo Indiana are equally as lovely.

I was working on our Downtown Kokomo Photography Studio this past week, trying to get it ready for Kokomo’s First Friday coming up, and I snagged one of these plants to make the perfect little bit of green addition to the studio’s vibe.

If you’d like to book your own greenhouse session, contact me on the contact page above. I’d love to hear from you and to answer any questions you may have.

Just look at those eyes! I can’t believe we took this photo almost two months ago. Elvie is just the sweetest little thing and she looked so cute in our one of a kind vintage apron dress.

I think that’s my favorite thing about our studio closet, no one else has one like it. Our outfits and styled setups are unique, because the items we use are either rare, vintage, or one of a kind. Our Kokomo studio itself is definitely one of a kind as Indiana’s premiere newborn and children’s portrait photographer.

Downtown Kokomo ~ Indiana Photography Studio


I’m soooooo excited to finally be opening the new photography studio in Downtown Kokomo! This has been a long time coming and this week we’ve been cleaning and prepping and painting everything.

The photography studio here in Kokomo Indiana will be large enough for extended studio family photography sessions as well as smaller more intimate family sessions with a newborn photography portion of the studio.

Featuring a mountain of outfits and props, I’m hoping the studio is one of a kind in both it’s offerings and styled portraits. Here’s to an incredible 2019!

Friday Fives ~ My Five Favorite Things About Fresh 48 Photography Sessions

This week, Fresh 48 photography sessions (also know as hospital photography sessions) are FREE with any full newborn photography session booked! This is a $300 value and it’s one of our most popular deals.

With this going on, I thought now might be a good time to tell you guys why I think Fresh 48 sessions are so great. So here’s today’s Friday Five! Here are my favorite 5 things about Fresh 48 sessions and why I think everyone should do them.

1) You’ll be tired.

There is nothing in the world like the blur that is being a new parent. Newborn memories, particularly the hospital ones, have a dreamy haze to them. You are *so* tired and you’ve been through so much in the last 24 hours, that your memory can be a bit flaky.

2) The environment is unique.

You’ll likely only be in the hospital for a short 24-72 hours. That’s not a lot of time to soak in those fresh baby memories. Your room, the hospital wrist bands, your newborn bassinet, these are all things that disappear once you go home. I *love* details and these are all things that I photograph, so that you have these memories for forever.

3) That fresh baby look.

You’d think that babies wouldn’t change that much from just 24 hours old to 1 week old but they do. Ohhhhh but they do. They look *so* different. They are usually a little more pink and chunky. Their head may be shaped differently from passing through the birth canal. They’ll still have their peachy layer of lanugo. They won’t have any baby acne or peeling skin yet. Their umbilical cord will still be present. They’ll be dressed in their little hospital clothes or their first ever outfit that you decided to bring to the hospital with you. They’ll look so different in just a few days time.

4) Siblings memories.

Having a big brother or sister meet their new sibling for the first time is ah-mazing. It only happens once. We can be there for that moment and preserve the look on their face, their feelings of timidness or excitement. We’ll see the pride on your face as you introduce them and you’ll always be able to go back to the very first moment where their relationship began.

5) An alternative to birth photography.

Though birth photography and fresh 48 photography are very different, they have similar vibes. If birth photography just isn’t your thing, but you still want the hospital setting, it’s a great alternative. We still get that “fresh out the womb” look as well as your births surroundings and it’s story.

There you have it! My five favorite things about Fresh 48 photography sessions and why I think everyone should do them. If you want to get in on the Free Fresh 48 session deal, contact me at jessicabnewton@gmail.com. You’re also welcome to come tour my Kokomo Indiana Photography Studio if you want to see what it’s all about.

Bradley Family ~ Kokomo Indiana Maternity Photography

April is in bloom and so are all those gorgeous baby bumps. I’ve been prepping the studio this week for a baby explosion because the studio is going to be FULL this month. Between the Motherhood Minis coming up and all of these new babies, we’ll be keeping busy to say the least.

I just stocked the studio with more florals and ordered some new spring color pastel bonnets that I can’t wait to get in! As well as some more newborn lovies which I’m probably more excited about than anything.

I had 3 expecting mamas visit me with their families over a weekend, all of which chose local parks for their maternity photography sessions in Kokomo Indiana.

We settled on using Jackson Morrow Park for Alaina’s session and she chose this beautiful muted teal green dress. We started things just prior to sunset for those gorgeous warm and moody colors that we all know and love.

Her oldest son Jack is just *full* of charm. Turns out we share a favorite Disney character, Captain Jack Sparrow! Also Jack Jack from the Incredibles. I wonder if the name “Jack” has anything to do with it 😉
I’m excited to meet with him again once his baby brother has arrived. He was just-a-smoochin on his mama’s baby bump and I know he’ll be doing the same once Baby Bradley arrives.

Here are some of my favorites from their session below. If you’d like to book your own maternity session, you can email me at jessicabnewton@gmail.com or visit the Contact Me form here.
