{Brandon~2012 Senior/Indiana Academy for Science, Mathematics and Humanities}Terre Haute,Indiana High School Senior Photographer

I met Brandon’s mom while she was attending a wedding I was photographing. I’m not total strangers to this family though. I’ve photographed some of her family members for almost 2 years.

Brandon chose to have studio pictures done vs going outside. This was a very good decision as it was misting heavily and very windy. Not a good day for outside pictures. His sister got in on a few pictures. Their mom showed me the last picture they had taken of the two of them together. It looks like it had been a little while. :)

I prefer to shoot in natural light when possible, but I always bring my studio lights and umbrellas for when natural light isn’t enough. Thankfully, they had two large windows that I was able to use. I did use one of my studio lights set at its brightest, just to give me a little more boost of light. Sometimes I have to increase my ISO to allow more light in. When you do that, we will see an increase in grain. My D700 handles higher ISO’s a little better than my D90.

Doesn’t he look like a young Steve Jobs??

{6 month session} “I”/Effingham, Ill Baby Photographer

We are half way into little “I”s first year of photos. It always amazes me how much the change from month to month. At his newborn session, he was small…really skinny. Really nothing much to his little self. Now, at 6 month he is chubby and full of smiles! Here are some of the favorites from our session.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

{E-Session} Amy & David/Brazil, Indiana Engagement and Wedding Photographer

Welcome back to me! Lol!! Talk about a long absence…geesh. I’ll have to catch up soon. Things have been so busy with sessions and weddings that the blog took a backseat.

Onto this blog post…..

Amy contacted me about shooting her September wedding. I had some earlier things scheduled, but thankfully was able to move some things around and give her that date. I am so glad that it worked out that we could work together. Their wedding is going to be so much fun! I’ve never used a plane in a session, so when we planned to meet up at the airfield in Brazil, I got really excited. After the airfield, we headed to David’s Grandmothers house. Talk about a great place! So many possibilities.

Here are some of my favorites:

M & R Session/Terre Haute Children Photographer

I’ve known this family for about 3…almost 4 years. This is the first time I’ve gotten to photograph them. When we scheduled their session, I had certain pictures in mind. A new friend of mine made the tutu’s and the hats. Her name is Crystal and you can find her on Facebook here: http://www.facebook.com/pages/Julie-Lawson-Photography/130867719377#!/pages/Flowerific-Bowtastic/105729519454791

We started off with some pictures of them playing, a little peek -a- boo. Then, we got their little tutu’s and hats and got started capturing what I had envisioned. I simply love how they came out.

The blue headband was created by Jessy’s Props and Creations. You can find her work on Facebook here:http://www.facebook.com/pages/Julie-Lawson-Photography/130867719377#!/JessysCreations.Photoprops

9 Month Session~K~/Terre Haute Indiana Infant and Children Photographer

It’s so hard to believe that this is “K”s next to last session. :( It is always such a pleasure to meet up with great people and wonderful children to take their photos. This always puts a smile on my face.

“K” was awesome on this day despite not feeling too well. When we wrapped up, she had a little fever…but she was a champ! Look at these pics and see if you can tell…I can’t! We got magic on this day. I wanted to get a little more of  a natural look to some of the images as well as some studio shots, so I told Holly that I would use her play area for part of it. They have this amazing sun porch off their T.V. room…I didn’t have to use my studio lights at all. <3

I should also make a little note, parents shouldn’t worry if their baby is a little/ or a lot fussy…I’ve told some that you will be surprised at what I can capture for ya. ;)

Please enjoy my multitude of favorites!

“C”~Clinton Indiana Newborn Photographer

This is little “C”…he is SUCH a wonderful little guy. When we met up, he was 6 weeks old. He was born early and on the date that these were taken, his mommy hadn’t even reached her original due date. He is such a strong little guy! It was so great to be able to capture this little cutie.

J.T~2011 Senior/Clinton and Terre Haute Indiana High School Senior

J.T. and I met up a little while ago before the snow began to fall and the temps took a nose dive. That’s why it looks so warm in these pics. :) He’s a great kid with an awesome smile!

J.T. graduates from South Vermillion in May.

Here are some of my favorites.

3 Months “C”/Terre Haute Indiana Infant Photographer

“C” is one of my Tiny Blessing babies. I meet up with the babies and their families for their Newborn, 3, 6, 9 month and 1 year. For each stage in their life, I try to come up with new and unique set-ups with the families. This way their session is a little unique and a little different from session to session.

This time I asked Ashley is I could set up in their large screened in back porch. It has huge windows all the way around it and it provided such wonderful light. Towards the end of the session I did have to bring out one light to give us just a bit more light. 

I am really excited about these pictures. We got some really great shots and “C” even fell asleep during part of the session. I don’t remember ever having that happen…but she got really cozy and just went to sleep. It worked out great!

Enjoy my favorites!

Maternity & Newborn Session/Indianapolis Maternity and Newborn Photographer

This is two posts in one! Some may remember the “C” family from the last couple of years. “X” is my first ever Tiny Blessings baby. Well, the family welcomed “T” on February 9.

I met with them 2 weeks prior to capture “A” and “X” before the little ones big arrival and to do some maternity photos of Christine. She looked positively radiant during her maternity session….but she looked spectacular the day of the newborn session.

“T” was 2 days old when I went to their home, so that makes him the youngest baby I’ve photographed in a studio setting. I chose to set up the backdrops in front of their big sliding glass doors. I really love natural light, so when it’s available…I leave the studio lights and softboxes in the car. :)

I found this link from previous sessions. Love looking back. :)

Allison & A.J./Terre Haute Indiana Wedding Photographer

January 28, 2011, Allison and A.J. got married at the Faithful Hearts Chapel in Terre Haute. This wedding was particularly meaningful for me because A.J. is my best friends oldest son. His mom and I have been best friends for 16 years. Life has caused us not to be as connected as we once were, different paths and directions, but as soon as I saw her….I could feel that same connection in my heart, you know? I’m trying not to make this a post about her…..but she and I have a lot time invested into each other that it tends to come out. I’m going to work really hard to spend more time with her and her family again.

It was so awesome to be able to capture A.J. and Allison’s love for one another and to watch them exchange their vows as well as to witness them light the family candle with their children.

I pray that A.J. and Allison spend many years together! God Bless your relationship and family.

 

Michelle and I
