I have been photographing every milestone since engagement! It never gets boring with this family! They give me so much freedom! So much trust! Newborn in a blueberry field? Yes please! Then the beach? Okay! Yay summer babies!
I don’t do baby photos very often. I actually turn most of them down. But when I get a chance to work outside the box and do things different, I take it on!
Perfect weather for a newborn! Yay summer baby!

oh my gosh! I forgot to hit send… like three weeks ago! Well.. I guess this is up just in time for Lilly’s 6 month birthday!
I can already tell you. I am in love with this little girl. Since having Perry my world has changed and I love babies more than ever!
Kyle and Leslie had one of the most exciting weddings I had ever done! I am thrilled that they contacted me to come to Indianapolis to meet little Lilly (who was born 4 days after my little man). Perry, Daniel, and I spent most the afternoon in their awesome home. Perry and Lilly even took naps together. They are very similar those too. Maybe that’s why I love her so much!
What a great day with great friends and great conversation!
I can’t wait to see them all again!
Check out her room. It’s super cute and I have color envy right now.
Posting these real quickly before going to bed. I’ll let you add commentary… The forth and fifth ones crack me up… He was nervous… then she took his hand… then he remembered he forgot his cootie shot!
By the end of the floor kicking session… they were buds… They chatted and played WWF. Lilly won by a foot it looks like. =)
Fun fact =======>>> Lilly was born four days after Perry! so cool!
My little man a day before 4 months. I am noticing that I am not picky with my child’s photography as I am with others… There are no rules… I don’t look for the best light or best background or the best clothes or make him smile. I shot him where he napped… wearing what he slept in… in our messy bedroom on blanket laundry day… We all were sick and also wearing what we woke up in. I look through the photo boxes from my childhood and those photos are the same. I treasure those more than the photos my parents got at Olen Mills. I’m not saying props, background, and smiles are not important… It’s nice to see your child from someone else’s view and to have fun with it… I believe in taking photos that will help us remember the day we were all sick, how Daniel played with Perry, and how we didn’t have time to keep our house (or ourselves) tidy, and most importantly… how happy or little boy was when he woke from his naps. Let your baby cry when he is with Santa, get muddy, destroy your house, pick his nose… just be there with a camera in hand.
Jasmine and Jade…. Love the names. This is the third time shooting these two… at 3 years old Jade has really warmed up to getting her photo taken and has developed a personality that I have fell head over heels for… maybe it’s my mommy hormones kicking in but I feel so connected to the love these two share. Jasmine, you’ve made me want to be just like you when my baby is born… you did such a good job raising Jade. Thank you for being so loving to your daughter!
PS. Love this time of the day. I encourage it at every shoot. 7-9pm is when the sun just peeks behind the trees and gives a warm loving glow. It makes me want to stay forever.

I don’t normally do Pregnancy shoots… but I had to do this one. This is Desiree! This beauty is a military wife, pregnant with her first child. She keeps herself busy by running a business of her own… She has a talent that only a handful of people possess. She designs dresses, hats, and fascinators. She designed the dress and fascinator hat in the following photos. Ughhhhh…. drool.. I wish I had this talent… but.. at least I know someone who could design something for me in the future!
