Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

About 15 months ago I met Sarah and Garrett when I did their baby boy Gabriel’s newborn session. He was a World Series baby, and born 9 months to the day after the Cubs won the World Series. Of course, it was a huge deal to his parents who are lifelong Cubs fans.

Gabriel did a few milestone sessions during his first year, and at one of them Sarah told me she was pregnant again! Surprise! Gabriel would have a sibling just 15 months younger than him. We did a summer mini session for the family to capture both Gabriel’s 1-year milestones and Sarah’s pregnancy. Then, in early December Sarah called and said they’d like to do a lifestyle newborn session.

Lifestyle sessions are lovely, but because they require natural lighting, a cloudy day can put a damper on things. The family has a beautiful home, and new addition Canaan was a doll, but it was a gray day in December. We decided to shorten the lifestyle session and then so a mini session at the studio for baby Canaan.

I still love so many of the images that we got during the lifestyle session. I know sometimes clients feel like I must not be getting anything good enough to print. On the contrary, I usually get more than I need. Even if a sweet moment only lasts a split second, that’s enough for me to capture (usually.)

Sarah and baby boy Canaan came into the studio the following week for the posed mini newborn session. Fortunately, Sarah was a able to get some much needed rest on the couch, while I got to tend to baby Canaan. I know these brothers are going to grow into the best of friends and I hope to keep seeing this family a few times a year to watch their relationship bloom.
