Indianapolis Newborn Photographer | Raw Sugar Photography

The end of April brought a very special family to my studio. Christa, Keith, and sweet almost two year old Luke came in with newborn baby girl Olivia! I met Christa and Keith when they adopted little Luke. We were doing his eight month milestone session when Christa gave me fantastic news, she was pregnant. After years of trying to have a baby, they adopted Luke and then got pregnant!

Christa told me she took the test four times when she found out she was pregnant with Olivia, and she was so thankful for a smooth pregnancy and delivery. We had an equally smooth newborn session with this sweet little doll. She was a fresh five days new when she made her debut at my studio. I loved her wisp of hair and long fingers and toes.

Christa and Keith are an online dating app success story. They were so meant to be that Christa was still on the 7 day trial when she matched with Keith! Keith loves home projects and Christa loves gardening, and family and their faith are important to both of them.

Big brother Luke was so excited to take pictures with his sister. He was perfection when I laid him down on my fuzzy rug and snuggled right up to his little sister. He looked right into my camera with his big blue eyes and their sibling pictures are so adorable. Watching the whole family snuggle together for family poses was magical. The joy just overflowed from them.

I had found a few flowered handkerchiefs I had forgotten about. I used a delicate little yellow flowered handkerchief to cover one of my small pillows and since its summer used one of my yellow knit wraps and bonnets. She looked like soft morning sunlight.

A little over a month later this family of four became a family of five and I was over the moon to hear that they had adopted Luke’s baby sister Claire, who was born in February. Claire was not loving the session much! In fact, all three kiddos took turns crying during the session which is pretty much par for the course when you have three under three. We definitely got there in the end, and I love even the photographs where not everyone is happy. Christa and Keith feel so incredibly blessed to now have these three sweet babies. They may not be getting a lot of sleep but they sure are getting a lot of love!
