Flowing Well Park Maternity Session in Carmel Indiana

This couple returned to me about seven months after I photographed their wedding for a beautiful creek-side maternity session. It was a nice spring evening and we had the perfect backdrop at Flowing Well Park. I am so excited for their upcoming newborn to arrive and to see them once again for their first session as a family of three. They are a very special couple and I am so happy to see their family growing!

Indianapolis Newborn Photographer - Noblesville Maternity Session

I recently spoke with a fellow Indianapolis photographer friend about the type of photography I love the most and I'm starting to think it revolves around all things family, but more importantly newborn's and baby's first year

The first year of your newborn's life is such a special and amazing time, but the anticipation prior to their arrival is exciting, nerve-wracking, emotional and so life changing. Growing this beautiful little life inside your body is just a miracle and I feel so incredibly lucky to capture these images. 

This family could not have been more kind, more loving or more beautiful! They were so stylish and adorable, We spent the evening at a beautiful park in Noblesville and it was the perfect sunset for their session. It really made for the perfect evening and I had so much fun with their family. Luckily I will be seeing them again very soon when their new little one makes her way into the world this fall. I also loved meeting the new big-sister-to-be! She was the sweetest little girl and I can already tell she will be the best big sister.

This Carmel Indiana maternity session was such a special time for me and for my gorgeous cousin as she gets ready to welcome her newborn little girl. She has been wanting a child of her own for awhile now and I am so happy that her prayers have been answered. 

The joy of motherhood...

Being a mom is an incredible gift and if you're anything like my cousin you may feel a bit reluctant to do a maternity session. It can be hard to be the center of attention when you are 8 months pregnant. So she was hesitant, but she knew that her daughter will cherish these images for many years to come. After we did the session, she was soooo happy to have the photographs! These moments are so special and definitely something to capture. 

I know she will be the best mom ever ever! She comes from a long line of strong women and she will be such an amazing example and blessing to her sweet daughter. I can't wait to see the future holds for both of them.

How to Prepare for Your Fresh 48 Indianapolis Photography Session - Kelli White Photography

How to Prepare for Your Fresh 48 Indianapolis Photography Session

When you welcome a new baby into the world the last thing on your mind is how to plan for your photography session. The good news is that I am here to help you prepare and put your mind at ease, long before your little bundle of joy arrives.

1. Relax, I've Got This!

When you schedule a Fresh 48 session with me you can take comfort in knowing that I handle every detail once I arrive at the hospital. Don't worry about the leftover coffee cup on your tray or tidying up your bags and papers. With your permission, I will move a few things around once I arrive and you can take comfort in knowing that I will ensure we have the best light and back drop for each image.

I also work on a very flexible timeline with Fresh 48 sessions. If doctors need to come and go, I can easily put the photos on pause to ensure you have your privacy. You and your baby's health is the #1 priority during this time!

2. Stay in Touch

Once you schedule your session I will ask that you keep me posted on your labor and delivery. When your baby arrives, please contact me to let me know and I will confirm the day and time that works best for your Fresh 48. Be sure to save my number or email in your phone after you book your session, and assign Dad the task of getting in touch while you relax with your new addition!

3. Pack Your Bags

As your due date approaches you will spend time checking your hospital bag to ensure you have everything ready to go! inside this bag you'll have plenty of items for the baby, but you may want to include a pretty robe or your favorite nightgown to wear during your Fresh 48 photos. I still love the simple look of the hospital gown, but depending on your taste you may feel a bit more comfortable and relaxed in your own clothing.

4. Create a plan for siblings

If you are expecting your second, third, or fourth...child, you will undoubtably have a plan for who will supervise the older children as you welcome your youngest into the world. With this consideration, you should also think about your plan for their involvement (if at all) in your Fresh 48 photography session.

Some families like to keep the focus on Mom, Dad and the new baby, while others like to include the entire family and capture the love surrounding their first introductions to the newest little sibling. This may also be a question to ask your hospital, as some have rules and regulations surrounding who is allowed to visit, especially during the winter months with flu season. 

Booking a Fresh 48 photography session is something I wish I had done prior to the arrival of my daughter. These are the type of photos that you don't know you need until it's too late! I look back on those first few days and can't believe how quickly the little details have somehow vanished from my memory. Very thankful for photos to remind me of those special moments. 

To learn more about my Fresh 48 sessions, Newborn sessions and Baby's First Year Packages get in touch with me today! I am open and available for a few Fresh 48 sessions each year and I am open to visiting any hospital in the Indianapolis area including, Carmel, Westfield, Noblesville, Fishers, Avon, Brownsburg, or the Terre Haute area hospitals. I would love to capture your special moments during this important time while making the photography process memorable, simple and seamless.
