Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography
I’ve known Matt and Leslie for a few years now through my brother and his wife, and was so happy to hear they were expecting. I may have sat around for a few months drumming my fingers waiting for them to reach out about a newborn session, and I was absolutely thrilled when they did. They are such a fun couple and I knew the session would be the same.
At just twelve days new, baby Bella hardly made a peep the whole 3+ hours she was there. Matt and Leslie were completely relaxed in front of and behind the camera during Bella’s session. You can see the love radiating from them in every image, you would never even know Matt was struggling to keep his eyes open or that his sweet little girl peed all over him! Matt I talked about how unbelievable it is how instantaneous and strong the love is for your child, and how you simply don’t understand it until you experience it for yourself. No doubt Bella already has him wrapped around her pretty little finger.
Bella is about as perfect as they come. She has gorgeous dark hair, long eyelashes, and even beautifully shaped eyebrows – I mean, babies don’t even have eyebrows, who does she think she is? Little miss was just the sweetest little model too, she stayed awake for her pictures with Mom and Dad, but once she was all snugly wrapped, I didn’t see her eyes again until the very end of the session when she let us know that she was done for the day.
I got to use my new wooden bowl from the Indy Cottage Prop Shop and Bella fit perfectly into it. Leslie said their home has a lot of wood features, so hopefully these shots will look great on display! Leslie requested that we use some purple as well, and I must have taken 850 pictures of Bella in my favorite newborn pose, her little tush in the air accentuating all her back wrinkles. She teased me for a good ten minutes, giving me all the signs she was about to smile, but alas I gave up. Even though we didn’t get one there, she cracked the cutest little grin at the end of the session when she was wrapped up in a baby blanket made by her great-great grandmother!
I had such a great time hanging with this sweet girl and her parents, I really hope to continue capturing memories for them as Bella grows!
