{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??

{9 Month Session ~ “L”} Avon Indiana Infant Photographer

Scott and Sarah came down from Avon to my house for “L”s 9 month session. He is such a beautiful baby! He’s so shy and he has the bluest eyes! When they came here we had some snow still on the ground so I thought to photograph the little one in some snow. He didn’t care for that too much. We’ve only had one, maybe two snows this winter. Today it feels like spring. I have a feeling that we will get some snow before the winter season is all over.

I got this backdrop from Photo Prop Floors and Backdrops. You can find all that they offer here: http://www.facebook.com/PhotoPropFloorsandBackdrops. From what I’m reading on their page, their website is looking to go live pretty soon.

{Newborn Session~Baby “K”}

I met up with Danyeil and David in the beginning of January to photograph their beautiful little girl! “K was around 12 days old when they came to see me. I could not get over how much hair she had and she slept like a champ!! Really excited with how the images came out!

Thank you Danyeil and David for letting me photograph your precious baby girl!!

{Wedding} Christina & Russell/West Layfayette Indiana Wedding Photographer

I was asked to shoot Christina and Russell’s wedding last year by Russell’s mom Emily. I didn’t get to meet Christina until the day of the wedding. I’ll admit, that always makes me nervous. I usually like to talk with my brides multiple times before the big day. I didn’t need to worry though, Christina and Russell, (the entire family for that matter) were so super laid back and just wonderful. I feel like we got along so wonderfully.

The wedding was held at Our Savior Lutheran Church in West Layfayette, Indiana. This is very near the campus of Purdue. We had such beautiful weather! Then it was off to dinner and dancing. Christina and Russell had the best music playing during dinner…..Michael Buble! As my family knows, he is my favorite, (well, him, Jason Mraz and John Mayer.) It is clear that he is crazy about her, ;^). I loved watching Russell with Christina. He was singing to her during their first dance, actually, I think he did that several times throughout the reception. Here are some of my favorites!

There wasn’t a formal, “you may now kiss your bride”, so I’m glad we were paying attention and watching them closely during this time of the ceremony.

Congratulations Christina and Russell! I wish you many years of happiness and God’s Highest and Best to you both.

{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.
