Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

I’ve known this family for a little over five years and I was oh-so-excited when I heard baby number three was on the way! I did Sarah and Matt’s first two children’s newborn sessions. Lucas (5) and Lucy (3) were super happy to introduce me to newborn baby girl Lainey.

We started off with family and sibling poses because Matt had told us he was going to give Sarah and break and take the two older ones home. Lucas and Lucy were on their best behavior because not only did they get to skip school but they got suckers if they gave me their best smile! Best behavior doesn’t even begin to cover how good these two did during the sibling poses. They were both sweet as pie to their new little baby sister.

Lucy renamed one of the chairs in our studio the Beauty and the Beast chair (it’s a little old fashioned and yellow) and we shall forever more refer to it as thus. The two older ones hung out with my assistant while I did mommy and daddy poses with baby girl and then they were off to a fun afternoon with Dad!

Lainey was a spectacular baby model. She had the sweetest copper colored fuzz on her head so I knew we’d have to get her in some mint green. I used my little metal bucket and green fuzzy wrap and she looked fresh from the garden.

Sarah sat and chatted with us during Lainey’s solo poses. Sarah works as a nurse practitioner in a cancer center. She said it is the best job she’s ever had and most of that is due to the people she works with. They are all either about her age with kids the same age, or a little older and welcoming grandchildren into their families. She told us how special it is to have people you can relate to at work who know what you’re going through, as well as people who can give you advice who have already been there.

It truly does take a village.
