Baby E // Batesville, IN Lifestyle Newborn Photographer

Starting off with my first newborn of 2018! These in home lifestyle newborn sessions are always a favorite of mine. There is something so special about being invited into a home to photograph a new baby during the first couple of weeks. I loved my time spent with this sweet family and I look forward to watching miss E and her big sis grow up!

Cristin is a talented photographer in the Nashville, TN area and is a close friend of mine! Last May I was able to go visit her and we were able to sneak in a quick family session. I just absolutely adore photographing her and her sweet family! They are so much fun. This family was on the blog a few months ago and it's crazy how much Amos and Lettie have grown since then! xo

I'm really missing these warm summer nights right about now so I thought I'd share another favorite from the summer. I loved this session so much! This session is just exactly what I want to capture for every family. Little Trace was just the cutest and his parents were so smitten with him. I love when parents are totally into interacting with their kids and spouse and just ignore my camera! 

This sweet family has welcomed baby boy #2 into the family since our session + I cannot wait to meet him!

I am so excited to share this adorable family session with you. It is long overdue! Overdue might even be an understatement.. it's from last May! I'm so excited to be sharing more sessions from this past year on the blog! 

This family has three boys and they are some of the sweetest boys I have ever met. We ran, played, explored, and laughed! Sessions like these are my favorite. The ones where you can feel the love between family members. There was so much love and energy between this family and I loved being able to capture it!

I am SO behind on blogging but I'm hoping to slowly get caught up over the next few winter months! I have had the pleasure of photographing so many sweet families this fall and I'm excited to share them with you! First up is this sweet newborn session...  

In home lifestyle newborn sessions are some of my favorites. I love capturing these special moments with the newest little family member. I had so much fun photographing this sweet baby boy and his big brothers! Here are a few of my favorites from our session. 

Baby Austin {Batesville, IN Lifestyle Newborn Photographer}

I'm trying to get caught up on blogging and what better way than a sweet newborn? I am so excited to share baby Austin's newborn session! I had so much fun capturing this sweet boy in all his squishy newness. His parents were pretty much obsessed with him and I don't blame them... just look at that sweet face! 

Thank you for letting me capture these special moments as a new family of 3, Laker family!

I had so much fun playing, laughing, and snuggling at the apple orchard with this adorable family a couple months ago! They were so much fun + just SO full of love for each other. It was so special to be able to capture their last moments as a family of three. 

I am so late posting this session that baby brother is already here + as cute as ever. Be on the lookout for his newborn session in the next week. Congratulations again Hofer family!

Meet Georgia {Batesville, IN Fresh 48 photographer}

This was one of my absolute favorite sessions to date. Fresh 48 sessions are just so special and awesome. I was so excited when Georgia's mommy decided that she wanted to do one! Those early days in the hospital can feel like such a blur. Why not have it all captured? The tiny toes, fingers, first diaper changes, siblings meeting, first family photos.. the list goes on & on. 

Sweet Georgia was only 12 hours old when I was lucky enough to photograph her (and sneak some snuggles in.. best job EVER)! She was all new and fresh and just the sweetest little thing you have ever seen. Her mommy and daddy could not stop loving on her and it was just precious. I witnessed so much love in that tiny room. I feel so honored that my clients allow me to be part of these extremely special times. 

A week later I was able to do her official newborn photos (be on the lookout for those soon)! It was amazing how much she had already grown and changed. Just another reason why these Fresh 48 sessions are SO important. If you are interested in booking a Fresh 48, I am currently running a special promotion for the first 5 people that book one. Contact me for more details! 

Thank you again Smock family for allowing me to capture these first, precious moments with your Georgia girl. <3

I had so much fun hanging out with Janie and her kiddos the other day. It was so fun to capture a normal day at home for this adorable trio. I fall more and more in love with these sessions every time I have one. There is just something so special about capturing these moments that are so fleeting..

an afternoon with the Morris family {batesville, IN lifestyle photographer}

I had the pleasure of photographing this absolutely adorable family a few weeks ago! They were honestly some of the sweetest + most genuine people I have ever met. It’s always so fun to photograph different family dynamics. Coming from a family with 4 girls, my childhood was all pink. Baby dolls, dress up, and tutus galore. This family had 3 (of the sweetest!) boys and one precious baby girl. It was all monster trucks, tractors, and lots of mud! They live on a farm and even had some sweet little baby pigs that we got to play with! They showed me all of their favorite hunting spots and special places in the woods behind the house. We ended with some family snuggles on the front porch.  

I just loved meeting this family + seeing how the love between them really shines through in these photographs. I mean, could they be any cuter? Thanks for letting me photograph a day in the life, Morris family!

Last month I was able to photograph the most adorable family when I was in Nashville! Unfortunately it only worked for me to come on a weekday so Dad and big brother had work and school so it turned into a mommy and me session! Cristin is a talented photographer. I know how photographers are never in the frame so it was awesome to focus on her and her little lady. Lettie was just one of the sweetest babies ever and it was so fun hanging out with her + her mama for the day! Also, I am pretty sure this beats the record for most images ever shared in a blog post and I'm not even sorry. ;)

This family is just the sweetest and I was so excited to have the opportunity to capture a day in the life of Sarah and her kiddos.. thank you Suding family for a fun morning!
