Newborn Session with Henrik | Lafayette Indiana Photographer

Newborn Session with Henrik | Lafayette Indiana Photographer

Welcome sweet sweet Henrik. The world has been waiting for you - and your parents treasure you. Your grandparents adore you. Your photographer is obsessed with you (truth). The life ahead of you is filled with memories bubbling with love and laughter. This newborn session was so fun because Annie (from the popular blog: Annie Lynn's Favorite Things) and Chris are my friends! That transformation is so beautiful watching your friends become parents - and seeing their deep devotion to their child is incredible. I love to just watch how the love on their newborn babe. 

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.

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!

This family I am pretty sure is my role model. They are not only beautiful, they are the nicest, happiest, most easy going people I know. I have photographed them starting when Ella was just a newborn and could fit in a little basket. Now she is dancing and kissing her mom's adorable belly. It's beautiful how families grow and change. I am thrilled to see them get ready for their newest family member. With every baby comes more joy and more memories to make. And your love for each other grows more and more. It's amazing how it works. Photographing their maternity session was a blast - like always. I found out that Ella loooves to jump and will instantly start giggling if I started jumping too. It's always fun working with little ones to find out what makes them chuckle and forget that I am snapping photos of them. Each child is different. Some love the camera and some are a little more timid. Ella definitely is more timid, but once she warms up she is so full of smiles.

Now let's talk about Ryan and Katie. I adore their relationship. They are perfect together and for each other. They make each other glow with happiness. And just look at how Ryan hold Katie - it is so tender and loving. Katie is his world. 

Thank you so much for letting me inside your little family. I am always honored that you want me to capture these moments for you.

Love, Vanessa
