Lukas' Birth Story

Lukas' Birth Story

Lukas was born! I dive a little into his birth story and what it was like - the emotions, the feelings, and the happiness afterwards. Do you love birth stories as much as I do?

Annie & Chris | Gorgeous Fall Maternity Session

Super beautiful couple? Check. Perfectly round belly? Check. Incredible fall weather and colors? Check. Check. Check. This fall maternity session was SO PERFECT. It had me swooning all over the place. They were just so in tune with each other and with their new baby who is growing so wonderfully. These two were made to be photographed, which is not surprising at all since Annie poses on the regular for her wonderful blog: http://dancingannielynn.blogspot.com/

I mean how freaking adorable can you get?? If she is looking for a side hustle, I think having babies may be it.

ANYWAYS. Off topic ;) Maternity sessions are really special to me because they share a very real, very intimate moment between the parents-to-be. You get an insight of their excitement and joy - and it turns into a little date night where you get to kiss a lot! Who can say no to that??

Well, Chris & Annie - to say the least - I am THRILLED to be your photographer (as a friend and admirer). I can't wait to meet the little guy and see what he looks like.

Senna Turns One!

I was getting so excited to see Senna during her Birthday Session! So much changes from birth. And it always is good to see her beautiful parents again. They are awesome and just have fun during the photo shoots! Senna's newborn session is still one of my favorites, with her perfect skin and GORGEOUS hair. I was oohing and awwing on her the whole entire time. At least when her mom and dad weren't :)

This time during her one year session, I was more of the entertainer....jumping and singing and playing peek-a-boo...to get that super adorable smile on her face. I tell the parents I do it for them though. It keeps them guessing (and laughing)!

And I do have to say that I wanted to for sure share this family session / birthday session with you because 1) this family is so sweet and so beautiful 2) grandparents were here (yay!) and 3) it was a new location for me, which I looooved!

Well, here ya go! I hope you guys enjoy.

Fraser Fam | Lafayette Family Photographer

There was definitely something magical about this family session. And to the naked eye, you may have missed it...but with my lens I saw it the entire time. We captured so many beautiful laughs and tickles and hugs. And the lighting was magnificent.

I had a blast getting to know these little humans and what they love. I discovered they liked zombies, so for a period of time I pretended to be a zombie photographer to get their smiles going. But what made them all smile the most is when they beautiful mom pulled them in close for hugs and kisses. She adores her kids so much and I love who these photos capture that love. It's so real and so beautiful. Allison is quite an amazing mom and I was so honored to be her family photographer!

Shannon + Kason | Gorgeous Maternity Session | Downtown Lafayette Indiana

Oh. My. Word. I am speechless....

These two are the most beautiful people I have ever met...and I got to photograph them!! I am the luckiest photographer EVER. :) But seriously, these two were made to be models. My camera absolutely loved them. Their smiles were glorious and they are so happy together. It makes so so excited for them to have their new babe - I can only image how happy they will be!

This session was done at my studio downtown, which is the perfect set up for couples/maternity shoots. We have great lighting and a variety of styles to do. But we lucked out even more with Downtown Lafayette Indiana. The day was beautiful and the courthouse had these awesome blooming trees that we took full advantage of! I love the B&W shots of those, but the colored ones are SO great. I couldn't NOT show you.

If you are in need of a photographer for a maternity session, shoot me a message! I would love to be your photographer. The recommended time for maternity sessions is typically between 30-33 weeks! I also have a special package that includes maternity + newborn portraits. Yay for pictures!

Love,

Vanessa
