One of my most favorite families! It absolutely warms my heart to see their little family grow.
Ivy is going to be the best big sister.
I can’t wait to meet that baby soon!
Prepare for cuteness overload! This might just be my most favorite session to date. This little baby boy has seriously stolen my heart!
Meet Samuel Arlington. The sweetest little baby I have ever had the pleasure to photograph.
He is perfect in every way. Check out his adorable head of hair!!!
I’m seriously in love.
Congrats again Lori and Kurt. He is such a beautiful baby boy. I’m so so happy for you two, I could just burst.
I was so honored to be able to do maternity photos for one my little sisters best friends. Aren’t they adorable?!
The weather in Fort Wayne IN was unseasonably warm for the end of March. And thank goodness!
Lyndi, you are absolutely stunning as an expectant mother. I loved all your choices for maternity dresses. That pink looks amazing on you, and not just because you are having a GIRL!!
You are positively glowing. I can’t wait to meet your sweet baby girl in May!
I had the opportunity to meet the most adorable couple for a chilly Maternity shoot here in Fort Wayne, IN.
I don’t often shoot in March because of the unpredictable weather, but it was so fun to be out of my comfort zone. And I really LOVED this location during this time of year. The trees that are normally covered in beautiful colored leaves were barren and stark; but Spring will soon bring new life to these trees. This is the perfect backdrop for an expecting couple who will soon usher a new life into this world. The seasons of the earth are so similar to the seasons of our lives.
Kurt and Lori, I cannot wait to meet your precious baby in a few short weeks.
I thought I would share a little behind the scenes blog post today. This post is more for my photographer friends, especially newborn photographers.
I LOVE newborn photography and love being a newborn photographer! And especially love those amazing shots on the posing bean bag with fabric drops. But, I cannot stand wrinkles. Hate em. I try really hard during my sessions to have that fabric pulled super tight. There is so much going on during a newborn session, the baby is directing the workflow and calling all the shots. For that reason, this line of work can definitely be hard. Especially if you are a perfectionist, and anal about certain things… which I am both. So when things are off, I spend waaaaaay to much time trying to correct them in my post processing.
If you’re like me, after the session, I get giddy to go through the images I have captured. When I’m looking through the images, and I see the wrinkles that I hastily created during the shoot, I want to cry. (please tell me I’m not alone here!)
But guys, dry your tears! I have found an amazing tool to help with this pet peeve of mine. It’s called Frequency Separation… and it’s the bomb. Best of all…. it’s a free action. Yup. FREE!! You can find it here. This action seriously takes so much time off my editing workflow! And it looks ten times better than just painting the background. I just love it and can’t say enough good things about it.
I have made a little video tutorial to show you how easy it is to use. This is my first video tutorial, so sorry if it’s a little too long (6 min) but my computer was running super slow.
