Baby Harper ~ A Fresh 48 Session Story ~ Indianapolis Indiana Birth Photographer

Fresh 48 and Birth sessions are my absolute favorite. Every time I walk into a hospital, my heart sings with joy and anticipation. Although it’s not my birth or my little squishy babe that has arrived, all of those feelings and emotions come back to me from my own birth stories and I can feel what my clients are feeling. The new day, the exhaustion, the excitement, the hazy dreams, the smells, the sounds, they never truly leave my being. The Robinson Family was gracious enough to invite me into to their own little heavenly space, to preserve memories of Baby Harper at just one day old. Here are some highlights of her earliest moments.

 

 

Baby Myah ~ Kokomo Indiana Newborn Photographer

Sweet Myah’s mama chose some of my favorite colors for her session and I just have to share them. I love how bright and fun they are, combined with her gray nursery with the pops of color. See my favorites below!

Holland’s Newborn Session ~ Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

indianapolis newborn photographer

So there’s a confession I have to make. I’ve been using Instagram for only about 4 months now 😁😁😁

I’m behind on the times I know. I couldn’t make myself use it consistently until recently, but I am SO glad I did. Because that’s how Holland’s sweet mama Kady found me!

Kady and Holland have quite the birth story. They made a huge move to Indianapolis, just a month prior to Holland’s due date. Expecting to have some time to get things settled and moved in to their new home, Holland decided to make her grand appearance a whole month early. And even though she was a month early, little girl was already 6 pounds! 

They decided to do a newborn/lifestyle combo session, where we spend half of their session focusing on Holland in posed newborn photos, and the rest in lifestyle images throughout their living space. I was so surprised at the togetherness and overall calming presence of their home. You’d never know that they had only lived there for a month, much less having had a newborn arrive a month early living amidst unpacking. I’m STILL trying to get our nursery together(with only 3 weeks to go, yikes!). Basically they’re awesome and I hope they pass on some of their ease and skill when our little one gets here 😉 Take a look at some of my favorites from their session below.

Indianapolis & Kokomo Indiana Newborn Photographer — Miss Serena

kokomo indiana newborn photographer

This past Christmas we were visiting our family in Louisville, and I had a conversation with my sister in law about newborn photography. She asked me if I had ever turned down a session before due to it being “outside of your style”. And I said most definitely.

Sometimes I receive Client requests that are far outside of what I typically do during a session. So much so that I have to push myself a little bit in my thinking and style, just to point where I’m a tad uncomfortable. And sometimes even to the point that I have to refer a prospective client to another photographer that can better meet their needs. 

But I love a good challenge 😉 And it isn’t very often that I feel the need to refer clients out. I love trying to mix my Client’s styles and needs with that of my own style, and with a recent session, that’s exactly what we did. A sweet expectant mama had shown me some pictures of their littles one’s nursery. It was focused around a mermaid theme with some teals, cremes, pinks, and purples. This was also outside of my style but I felt it could be made into my style and her style easily with a little bit of TLC. I ended up making some headbands especially for the session and they turned out just how I wanted. 

In the end, it turned out just how we had pictured. Little miss mermaid was born and she was the sleepiest scrunchiest babe. Purple was her color and cremes were her friend. She looked gorgeous in no matter what setup we placed her in. Thanks for working with me on her session sweet mama! It was so much fun!

Baby Harrison ~ Kokomo & Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

indianapolis newborn photographer

Did you know that newborn sessions are tailored to your own style? They can take a natural or posed approach depending on your personal preferences. We can do a bunch of squishy poses together, with Baby in a variety of wraps, headbands, rompers, baskets, etc. We can do a lifestyle approach with Baby in their crib or snuggled up with Mom and Dad on the couch. But my favorite way to approach newborn sessions is to do a little bit of both. 

I was able to meet sweet Harrison and his parents this past December and we spent our time doing a mix of both posed and unposed newborn portraiture. They lived in one of the major areas affected by the tornado that came through Kokomo this last year and had just finished up the last of the repairs before Baby H arrived. By the looks of their nautical nursery, you’d never know that there had been a struggle with bad weather. Each item was perfectly in place and Harrison fit right in. 

Brooke & Nick were obviously smitten with their little boy and their session was easy as pie. See more of their lovely nursery and handsome little man below. Thanks for inviting me in to your home to preserve these memories B & N!

Baby A.J. ~ Indianapolis & Kokomo Newborn Photographer

indianapolis newborn photographer

Cutie pie here arrived just before Christmas. Best Christmas gift ever right? I was soooooo glad we were able to squeeze his session in before we left to go out of town. He had the prettiest skin and his mama and daddy are both such lovely people. We did a little bit of a lifestyle session in their apartment together and also some of the more posed portraits of just A.J. by himself. See more of this session below.

Little Lady Violet — Kokomo Indiana Newborn Photographer

kokomo indiana newborn photographer

Oh sweet little girl. I’m am so so so happy that I got to know her and her sweet family! Violet was due to arrive soon after her beautiful cousin Esther, who I was also able to also meet and work with as one of my 2016 newborns. Both Esther and Violet’s families are very close and that’s made obvious upon meeting them. 

One of my favorite favorite favorite props is a vintage quilt that I bought last year. There is an itty bitty antique shop run out of a small store front that is actually an elderly woman’s home in Kokomo Indiana. The quilt was hiding there just waiting for this purpose, and I was finally able to use the quilt last month at Violet’s session. It was just as perfect as I thought it would be! Check out sweet Violet’s little nursery below with some of my favorites from her session.
