Aria – 1 Year Old {Indianapolis, IN Baby Photographer}

Once upon a time I met the sweetest little newborn who slept during her entire session:

Six months later, we had another wonderful session together:

Then she came to my studio for her 1-year session and she said, “THAT IS IT!  I AM TIRED OF MODELING FOR THIS LADY!”  Well, okay, ONE smile and then I am DONE!

Portraits weren’t going well, so we moved on to the cake smash portion.  And she was okay – as long as Daddy let her sit in his lap.  Hahahahaha!  These will make for some great stories and memories as she gets older.  In the end, she decided it was her party, and she was going to cry if she wanted to.

Thank goodness for laid-back parents who were patient and loving – and who may or may not have joined me in a few laughs, because what else can you do?  :)


Laney: 15 Days Old {Indianapolis, IN Newborn Photographer}

Laney was SO PERFECT during her session.  Barely made a peep, didn’t wake up to eat, never peed or pooped on anything – she just slept and slept!  Her mama most definitely followed all of the instructions in my prep packet.  :)  Of course it helps that this family just so happens to live in my neighborhood, so the drive over took less than a minute…hahaha!

Enjoy the blog post!  Try not to squeal over Laney’s squishiness.  Little Miss 9 lbs.  :D

Fiona: 1 Year Old {Indianapolis, IN Baby Photographer}

Little Miss Fiona sure has changed since her newborn session!

Her parents and I cracked up at that “grumpy old man” face back in the day – and it’s even funnier now because she’s actually one of the happiest babies ever!  You never know what you’re going to get with a 1  year old session.  These babies are unpredictable and I’ve found they either have a GREAT time or it’s the worst day of their lives, ha!  Thankfully for me, Fiona was all smiles and totally NAILED IT with the cake smash.  :)
