~ Baby Ellie ~ Indianapolis area Newborn Photography

Baby portrait sessions always make me happy.  Not only do I get to take pictures, but I get to spend time with these gorgeous little beings.  Nothing in the world is more precious that a sweet, sleeping baby.  Today was no exception!  Beautiful little Ellie is actually the daughter of a former senior gal of mine.  She is almost three months old and, oh boy, did she come prepared to stay awake as long as she could!  And every time I got close to her and talked to her, she would give me this adorable little grin, almost as if to say..."lady, this is never gonna happen."  LOL  But, after a lot of rocking and bouncing, she drifted off to sleep and I got to work!  The sleeping didn't last long, but luckily it was long enough.  And then it was active baby from there on out.  Good thing she is super cute, because I have a feeling she is going to keep her mommy very busy once she gets moving!  Look how pretty she is!!  :)

New props always make me happy!

Nothing causes more boredom for a photographer than shooting the same old thing time and time again.  So, it's always fun to freshen up the prop closet with new items.  This is a setup I will be using for a baby session tomorrow and I can't wait!  :)

Baby Jack is 1 year old!

It's so hard to believe how fast a baby's first birthday comes.  It feels like you wait so long to finally meet them and then suddenly they turn one and you wonder where that first year went.  I am sure this little guy's mommy feels that way.  It seems like just yesterday when I was photographing him as a sweet, sleepy, snuggly newborn.  And now here he is, chattering away, showing off those new teeth, standing on his own, and walking a few steps at a time!  It's amazing the things that happen in that first year!!  And this little guy's session was extra special to me because his mommy is the angel that delivered our baby girl almost two and half years ago!!  My how the time does fly!!
