Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

Last week I had back to back 11 day old newborn baby girls in my studio. Miss Marcella, or Mari, was first up and had the sweetest little demeanor. She brought Mom, Dad, and big sister Zelly with her for her newborn session. Zelly was inquisitive, playful, and had the prettiest little smile, right up until I asked her to hold her sister.

As most toddlers will, Zelly tolerated me for just long enough for me to get some sweet sibling poses and a few family poses in. Then Zelly was moving on!

I met Mom, Karina, through her twin brother. Karina, and her husband Andy, moved to Indianapolis from Chicago. Andy is from Chicago and Karina is from Carmel here in Indianapolis. They have been married for four years, and are both totally laid back, which made for an easy session. Karina told me Marcella was a surprise, but a great one!

Even though Zelly wanted nothing to do with holding her baby sister, she did want to come in and make quite sure Mari was okay during her solo part of the session. Marcella, named for Andy’s maternal grandmother, was a dream baby. Rarely are babies just as happy awake as they are asleep, but Mari was content either way. I got some really amazing posed shots of her looking directly into my camera.

Karina told me she wanted neutral colors and pinks, and it was the perfect palette for the little Miss. I had just gotten some new headbands in really gorgeous fall hues, so we did stray a bit. I don’t think mom will mind though, Marcella was a beauty in every color.

Check out how great this family of four looks in their gallery!
