Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

Oh how I love this family! I met Dana and David a couple years ago when I did their newborn session for their sweet and spunky daughter Nina. A few weeks before the newborn session I did Dana’s maternity session and Nina was in no mood for photographs. Surviving life with toddlers is a lot easier if you are easy going and have a sense of humor. Dana told me the second Nina was born she looked over and said to David, “She’s going to be a great big sister!” David said, “Big sister? I’m still dilated over here!” As you can see they have the BEST sense of humor.¬†At just shy of two years old, Nina brought in her little sister Rosalyn for her newborn session.

We did the family part of baby girl’s session first. Nina was about as interested in her little sister as most almost two year olds are. She thought my step ladder was way more interesting than the baby, I mean, who would want to sit and hold a baby when you can climb up and down something instead? We got her to get up and kiss her sister in the end though and sometimes fleeting actions make the best photographs.

Dana and David met at a dog park, and if they had Dalmatians their story would be just like that Disney movie. They have been married for five years and it all started when Dorothy and Sunny’s leashes intertwined… that’s their story and they are sticking to it! David was born in Mexico, so it was important to them to name their daughters according to their Mexican heritage. Rosalyn means “beautiful rose” in Spanish and David’s mother grows gorgeous roses every year.

When it was Rosalyn’s solo portion of her newborn session this baby did not stop smiling. She just loved being in front of my camera! In almost every pose a put her in she gave me a sleeping baby smile. Watching this family grow over the years is such a joy, here is a sneak peak of Rosalyn’s newborn session.
