{Easton|”BIRTHday”}Clinton Indiana Newborn Photographer

I’ve done a few hospital newborn shots for my Tiny Blessing families! I completely and totally love it! Last night however was the first time I went just hours after the baby was born. The entire family was there waiting to get their eyes and hands on that little guy. :)

Jessica’s labor started around 11 p.m Monday night and she went in to the hospital at around 1 a.m. The family waited anxiously all day for Easton to arrive, but we all know how babies are. :) We got the last update that Jess was at 10cm so I knew that at any minute I would get the call to come…..and I waited….and waited. ha! After about 2 1/2 hours of pushing they made the decision to do a C-section. Well no wonder! Easton is a big boy!! He was born 9 lb 6 oz and 21 1/2 inches long. He has the most biggest hands I have seen on a newborn. I hope my little hats fit him. lol He is definitely going to play football.

I’ll be meeting up with the new family on Saturday, so until then, here is a slideshow of my visit.

{6 Month Session~Blakely/Terre Haute Indiana Infant Photographer}

I love getting together with this family. Little Blakely is such a cutie! It was very blustery and just a wee bit chilly when we met up, so we made this one of the quickest sessions ever. :)

Here are some of my favorites from their session.

{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??

{1 year Session ~ “C”}

Kim, her mom and sister met up at my house for “C”s 1 year session. The year goes by so fast! I always get a little misty eyed when the year ends.

I love cake smash sessions! You never really know how the little one is going to react to the cake. I’ve seen some tear into it, some barely pick at it and some that shudder at the littlest taste of it. “C” liked it, but he didn’t tear into it. :)

I’ve included some from his 9 month session since I never did get around to blogging that one.

Happy Birthday “C”!!

 

On to “C”s 1 year session!!

Session with a purpose

Several months back I posted on my Facebook Fan page a request to find a few people that have either survived cancer or some that were going through it. Out of all the responses I received, only one booked with me. What was my purpose for these sessions? To celebrate life! I’m seeing far too many people losing the ones they love because of this terrible disease.

I was contacted by Holly, one of my families that I photographed, regarding her Aunt that is fighting this battle. I took Kims pictures in the spring of 2011 at Bridgeton. Holly contacted me again to see if I would take some more photos of Kim and her family a couple of weeks ago. Of course, I consider it a complete honor to capture small moments in their lives. I am still lifting you up in prayer Kim. I love you lady!! You are such a warrior. <3

Here are my many favorites from their special session.

{Maternity} “M” Family

This is my good friend Darla and her family. Tomorrow is birth day for this family…or it will be if “K” cooperates. I just hope that he waits for my session to be done tomorrow night before he makes his big arrival. You see, Darla is letting me document the birth of their son and I so want to be there for his first breath. I can’t think of a better gift than to capture the minutes and moments of labor and delivery.

We took these images in 15 minutes. Indiana had experienced some really high temps. Not as hot as Texas or for as long as Texas…but still, it was hot. On this day it was 115 heat index, definitely not the atmosphere for a pregnant momma. Here are the images that we took.

Come back to check out birth day pics later. (If Darla lets me post some of those. lol )

{Family Session} Hayne Family/Terre Haute Indiana Family Photographer

I met this family a couple of years ago when I photographed Mark and Madison’s wedding. Then, I had the pleasure of photographing Taylor’s Senior pictures. So, when I was contacted to shoot the entire family, I was thrilled. This family is the type of family that you would want to hang out with. They are so nice, caring and fun to be around. You really get a sense of what love in the family should be like.

Thanks again for asking me to do this for you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

{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 changeĀ 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
