Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

Two newborn baby girls, born on the same day, both had their newborn sessions in my studio last week! Giada Louise was 11 days new when Emilee and Matt brought her in for her newborn session, as perfect as can be. Emilee is the youngest of 8 children, and I’ve done two of her sisters’ babies’ sessions before her. It must have been a bit of a shock for Matt, given he only has 1 younger brother! That’s a lot of siblings to gain!

I’m sure he is used to the big family by now, Emilee and Matt have been together for 6 years, and married for 3. They met at Purdue University in their Junior year. Different as can be family-wise, Matt grew up in Orland Park, IL, and Emilee in Nashville, IN, a city boy and a country girl fell in love.

Miss Giada was 6.5 lbs of sleepiness. She was the perfect baby model all throughout our session. Every shade of pink looked perfect against baby girl’s skin. During the session, Emilee told me all about how this little newborn decided to make her way into the world, and it was quite a tale!

Emilee went into labor at about 6:30 pm and Matt timed the contractions. Emilee was contracting about every ten minutes. All night they kept up until they were four to five minutes apart. Emilee was still not convinced she was in active labor, so she cleaned, showered, straightened her hair and then at 2 a.m. decided to go for a four mile walk! Whilst on this walk, she all of a sudden heard a loud speaker ask her what she was doing. She turned around to see two police cars had pulled up behind her. When she told them she was taking a walk because she was in labor they sheepishly offered to take her to the hospital! Emilee declined and told them she was on her way home to wake up her husband. Seven or so hours later, on her precise due date, Giada was born at 9:02 p.m.

This little family of three is filled with love and I adored their newborn session. I hope if any more of Emilee’s siblings are having babies, I see them in my studio!
