Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

A couple of months ago I had a fun outdoor winter maternity session with Laura and Derek. Just last week they brought their beautiful newborn baby girl Bella into my studio for her newborn session. Bella brought a literal ray of sunshine with her- it was almost 80 degrees in mid February!

There was such a tease of spring weather in the air I decided to wrap Miss Bella up in a fuzzy mint wrap. I placed her in my wooden bowl on one of my quilts. She looked like she was ready for an early spring picnic. The lighting in my studio made the neutrals look fresh. Miss Bella looked so peaceful and happy. She cuddled a little knit bear just right and made me hopeful spring is on its way.

I started off her session with Mom and Dad, and we had Bella wrapped in dark grey to match them. They were both so blissfully in love. Laura and Derek were introduced by mutual friends and Derek will tell you it was love at first sight when he met Laura. They are such a fun couple and enjoy traveling a lot. They found out they were expecting the day before they were taking a trip to San Francisco. They had to immediately cancel their wine tour of Soma and Napa Valley! Laura said she really enjoyed her time being pregnant, especially their “Baby Moon” in Maui.

Laura’s grandmother was Italian and she was known for always saying the word “bella” when she was expressing joy or happiness about anything and everything. Laura decided it would be a nice way to honor her grandmother. This baby girl’s name is a perfect fit.
