Goshen Newborn Photographer: Lauren B.

Miss L. is my sister-in-law's niece.  I'll make a chart...

My husband's sister married W. W's sister had a baby girl last month. 

Her momma brought her down from Michigan to take some pictures in my "studio".  I always love when babies come to ME because I have control of the environment and set up.  The room was a toasty 85 when we started [and rising from there] and little Miss Lauren couldn't have been happier about that! She was a dream to photograph!

Bright eyes

This was the one-eyed "what the heck are you doing to me?" look. Check out those lips!

I had trouble keeping her eyes closed while she slept :) I just love this side pose

Goshen Newborn Photographer: Elianna S.

When Victoria emailed me about newborn pictures, I was thrilled [and amused] to learn that she lived right in my neighborhood! Although we had never met previously, except for a few hellos to her husband on my evening walks, I knew just which house she lived in. So when the time came for newborn pictures, I packed up my van and drove less than a block down the street.  If I didn't take a mini-studio with me everywhere I went, I might have been able to use a wagon to get down there.

Elianna was AWESOME for our session! We started with some pictures with big brother Parker, and then went right into some "studio" shots.  Here are a few...

Look at this proud big brother!

Sometimes you just need a little mama love.

South Bend Newborn Photographer: Zoey J.

Miss Zoey wanted to stay WIDE awake for our session but after a few hours of coaxing, we were able to get her nice and cozy and ready for pictures! Isn't she just a little sweetheart? I loved all her hair.

This is more of a "lifestyle" snapshot, but mom was burping her and I loved her content little face laying in her mama's hand.

Goshen Maternity Photographer: Jena B.

Jena is my sister-in-law, so basically I got to drag her to four different locations over two different shooting days. Our goal was to get creative, try new things, and get a huge variety of pictures. :) I don't think she minded too much.

SO happy with the lighting we got this night!

We tried some "studio" shots even though I don't really have a studio :)

These last two shots are some of my favorites

Goshen Newborn Photographer: Connor G.

Connor was Mr. Wide Awake for our newborn session! He stared at me [just like below] for over two hours before he finally gave into exhaustion and passed out. He was such a content, sweet little boy and let me pose him and even gave me a smile.... which you'll see below if you scroll!

Goshen Child Photographer: Miss G - 18 months

Back in March I met little miss Grace, and her parents, in downtown Goshen for a photo shoot. If you have young kids, or have had them, you know just how active 18 month olds can be! Thankfully, we were able to get some still shots from her, and she even gave me some smiles.
