Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography
I’ve had so many beautiful newborn baby girls in my studio lately! On Monday, 7 days new Lily came to visit me, and it was a such a fun photography session with the Henderson family.
Lily’s Dad Dwayne moved around a bit when he was growing up, but I would bet he’d say the best move was to Muncie, Indiana to attend Ball State University. There he met Reese (Mom) who had moved to Muncie to attend Ball State from Des Plaines, Illinois. They had classes together and then shared the IU Health Ball Memorial Hospital internship in the Marketing Department. There they became friends and started dating, together since February of 2012. Two years later they were married and a year after that they had a baby boy.
I should pause here and mention that Dwayne is a HUGE Lakers fan. First, he named their puppy Shaq, and then he insisted on naming their first son Kobe. She decided after those two she would retain sole naming rights over all future children and pets! When Kobe was nine months old, Reese and Dwayne found out Kobe was about to be a big brother. They were shocked and excited and just could not believe they were about to be parents of two.
Irish twins are always a handful, from the pregnancy- during which Kobe learned to walk, and we all know how life changes after those first few steps are taken- to once the baby is born, having two small humans who need you for everything. Reese had an amazing pregnancy with Kobe so, as will happen, the pregnancy with Lily was not smooth even without adding in all the running around after a toddler. Dwayne and Reese were extra excited for the arrival of their daughter after nine months of nausea, awful back pain, and lack of sleep!
Reese and Dwayne know how important it is to honor our grandparents, and Lillian Grace’s name came from her maternal great-great-grandmother. During Reese’s pregnancy, Dwayne’s grandmother passed away and they brought a bunny that belonged to her to the session in order to keep her memory alive with one of her favorite belongings.
I hope these four come back to see me in the future, and who knows? Maybe in a couple decades I’ll be able to say I knew the brother and sister who both now play for the NBA and WNBA!
