Hey there!  Hello, friends!!!  We are in for a treat today!  I had the honor of meeting and photographing this beautiful and kind family on a sunny day in February in the wonderfully, cozy and perfect, Zionsville Studio Loft!  Lauren and Kyle are expecting their second baby – a boy!!! – later this Spring!  And handsome Graham is excited!  I just know he’s going to be a great big brother!  Having two boys myself, I can guarantee this trio they are in for the most fun, most wild of rides!  And I cannot wait to meet their newest family member in the coming weeks!  As you’ll see in these images, Lauren and Kyle are easy-going, caring, loving, joyful parents to their almost 2 year old son, Graham!  And, although Graham was not too sure of having his photo taken, we read books, we played with cars, we played peek a boo with curtains, and we got some sweet portraits of this exciting and precious time in this family’s life right now!  L+K+G, I loved meeting you all and sharing an afternoon with you as you anxiously await your new little one – he is already so loved and lucky and blessed!  And now for some favorites from our time together!  P.S. Lauren, you are gorgeous!!!

As soon as I walked up to greet this adorable family, I knew we were in for a wonderful time!  They were all smiles and were ready for some sweet snuggles together.  Chris and Amanda are soft-spoken and kind parents, who are so proud of their handsome boy, Braxton.  This soon-to-be Big Brother melted my heart with his sparkling blue eyes, his bright smile, and his excitement for everything!  During our session, he shared one of his favorite trucks with me, so I already know that his new little brother will be one of the luckiest little guys around!  Chris, Amanda, and Braxton, it was an honor to meet you and to photograph this exciting time in your lives!  I’m so excited for you, and I cannot wait to meet your new little bundle of joy!  Enjoy some of my favorites!!!

This gorgeous family happens to be part of my family!  Alex and I are cousins, and it’s such an honor to capture precious memories for his adorable family!  In June, Cathryn and Alex traveled to Noblesville with their little girl, Leighton, who is almost 2 and a half years old.  It was a hot, hot, hot summer afternoon, and they happily smiled and laughed and snuggled their way through the session with ease!  To see some favorites from their maternity session, keep scrolling below!  However, we must fast-forward to just a few short weeks ago, as they welcomed their second baby girl into their lives, Miss Ashten!  She is beyond precious, giving them hours of sleep at a time, and melting everyone’s hearts with her little coo’s and calm demeanor.  Ashten’s nursery was a dream to photograph, with lots of natural light pouring in, colorful and heartfelt details, and a cozy vibe that wraps you up in warmth. Her big sister Leighton is a natural – she adjusted her little sister’s bow, she showered her with tiny kisses, and stared at her new sibling with awe and wonder.  It was absolutely a joy to see it all!  Especially her delicate features and tiny toes!  We took some photos in Leighton’s room too – she is so proud of her big girl room!  This new family of four (plus two furry pups!) welcomed into their stylishly restored colonial home for their newborn session, and it was so fun to relive those first few days at home with not one, but too little ones!  Alex and Cathryn, you two are wonderful parents, and I loved being there to document it for you!  What a beautiful family you have!  Thank you for sharing this special time with me!  Can’t wait to see you again!!! Hugs!!!

This next sweet session was full of gorgeous sunshine, smiles, and searching for butterflies in a colorful secret garden!  And the family was even sweeter, with the two most adorable sisters, Ava and Audrey.  I had the honor of photographing Audrey when she was just 5 days new!  They are excited about the arrival of their newest family member in just a few short weeks!  We spent the warm summer morning getting some portraits that I can’t wait to share!  So excited for your family, Jason and Jessica!  Ava and Audrey will be the best big sisters!!!  And now for some of my many favorites!

Say hello to these two cuties!!!  Audrey, 2, and her big sister, Ava, 4!
Lovelovelove both of these!

Seriously adorable, Miss Audrey!

Ava was so excited to be in front of the camera!  Love her smile!


Jessica, you are beautiful! 

These girls adore their parents!  Love both of these!

Ava and Audrey helped me get some portraits of their Mommy and Daddy!  😉

We ventured to a beautiful garden in search of some butterflies…we did spot a few fluttering about!

Ava suggested they put on their own butterfly wings to attract more butterflies!
I love this series of them in their sparkly wings!

Another favorite!

J + J, you are the cutest!  

Stunning, glowing, radiant Momma-to-be!

Little Audrey wasn’t feeling too well during our warm and humid session, suffering from a summer cold, and this next image just melted my heart!  Daddy’s little girl!  

So sweet!

Jason, Jessica, Ava, and Audrey, thank you so much for sharing your morning with me!  You guys are such a fun and easy-going family, a true joy to photograph!  So excited to meet your newest addition in the coming weeks!  Your new little one just could not ask for a more loving and lively family!  Congratulations!!!

Earlier this Spring, we learned that we’d be expecting a new addition to our family!  We let Remington in on the news right away, because we know that with a new baby comes some big changes and periods of adjustment.  Santa Claus will be pretty busy this season… Our due date is 12/25/15!  We had a perfect summer night to capture this exciting time!  On Monday, we found out if we’ll be decorating the nursery with pink or blue!  Keep reading! 😉

My handsome guys!

Reggie captured some of the sweetest photos that I will always cherish!  Remington has been giving hugs and kisses to the baby since finding out he’ll be a big brother.  And it just melts my heart!

Remington’s favorite cuddly friend had to come along… Hi Goldie!

Drumroll, please!  It’s a BOY!!!

I told Remington I had some surprises in store for him during our session.  Confetti!!!
And by the looks of the image on the right, he’s going to be a great big brother!  Poor Goldie was getting covered in blue confetti! 😉

Then it was time for blue silly string!  Once he got the hang of pressing the button, he was unstoppable!

Yay for boys!  We’re so excited that Remington will have a little brother!  He’ll be able to share all of his cars, trucks, and trains with him! 😉  We truly feel blessed and can’t wait to meet the little guy!
Thank you to Reggie and my parents for helping with this special session, and for cleaning up all of the confetti and silly string!  Love you all to pieces!
