Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

It has been popular in my newborn sessions lately for parents to wait to find out if the baby is a boy or girl until delivery, and Rowan Matthew was no exception. Well, maybe not a total surprise, he is the third boy for this gorgeous family!

Kyla and Jordan, who just celebrated their 8th wedding anniversary, came in with their three sons, Luca, Oliver, and Rowan. Kyla was the oldest of three girls, so three boys is an adventure for her. Luckily, Jordan is the youngest of four boys, so he’s used it it all. Each of their three sons was born in a different city, Luca in Chicago, Oliver in New York City, and baby boy Rowan in Indianapolis.

As you might imagine, this is a very active family, and little boys don’t sit still for very long, but I was able to get some of the best sibling photographs of these three brothers. Luca and Oliver’s smiles were like sunshine. They tolerated being in front of my camera for longer than I would have thought, and then went off to have snacks with my assistant while I got some of Mom and Dad with their new baby.

Kyla and Jordan said that its very important to them to serve in their community and overseas. They mentor refugees through a local organization, Exodus Refugee Immigration. They love being outdoors and exploring new places. Luca and Oliver told us all about how much they liked playing soccer, just like their Dad, who played soccer at IU.

Rowan was wide-eyed and ready to see the world, or at least the inside of my studio, when it came time to do his solo part of the session. It didn’t matter what cozy sweater or snug wrap I put on him, he was still just as awake as could be. I didn’t mind though, because he kept looking directly into my camera. At the very end he closed his eyes while smiling and I got just a few sleepy photographs.

These brothers are definitely going to be fun to photograph growing up, I can’t wait to see how much they’ve grown at their next session!
