Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography
When my assistant told me we were going to have a “World Series Baby” in the studio this past week, I wondered how many of the babies I would be seeing right about now were “World Series Babies”. There can be no doubt Gabriel is, all 7 lbs 5 oz of him, because he was born nine months to the day from when the Chicago Cubs won the World Series! Bet you can’t guess what props Mom and Dad brought for his newborn shoot.
Sarah and Garrett grew up in Illinois and Indiana respectively, and it seems as if they were meant to be from the beginning. They were born ten days apart, but right on each of their due dates, and they weighed the exact same, 8 lbs 13 oz. They met eighteen years later in college. Two days after they met Sarah told her best friend she was going to marry Garrett. They’ve been married 4 years now, lived a couple different places, and settled in Indy two years ago. They could not believe it when they found out they were expecting baby Gabriel. Sarah was so happy she couldn’t stop laughing, and Garrett was so surprised he made her take a second test just to be sure!
I loved shooting the parent portion of the session for these three. Mom and Dad were so overjoyed and their baby boy was serene in their arms. Gabriel was completely asleep, and he stayed that way the entire session. He didn’t even need a break for lunch! I took advantage immediately and since he was so peaceful I got him unwrapped and posed in my favorite wooden bowl from The Indy Cottage Prop Shop. We took some other prop shots and then I wriggled him still asleep into a snuggly sweater and he still didn’t make a peep!
Mom and Dad brought in a few things to use for Gabriel’s session, and you guessed it, Cubs swag! The Cubs’ first baseman, Anthony Rizzo, threw Garrett a baseball at a game. Earlier this season, Sarah and Garrett went to a game (Sarah was quite pregnant) and they made a sign that said “This is a World Series Baby!”. The sign worked as they got players attention with it!
I don’t know for sure, but the way Gabriel held that ball, he may be on a World Series winning team one day, I hope it’s the Cubs!
