Baby Ryan | Newborn Studio Session


Meet baby Ryan! Mom and Dad brought this sweet little newborn to the Indy Family Photo studio for his newborn photo session with his older brother Drew. I loved getting to meet this adorable family—now a family of four.

Studio Maternity and Newborn Sessions

I was fortunate enough to get to capture both maternity photos and a newborn session for this wonderful family. Steve (Dad) is the perfect dad-blend of hilarious and goofy, but also so visibly loving. Cara is kind, empathetic, and organized—all things you need to be when you are a mom of two boys! Big Brother Drew was six years old at the time of this photography shoot. He was so excited to be a big brother to Baby Ryan. Mom and Dad even let Drew pick out his baby brother’s middle name: Joseph.

Mom and Dad have gone through a lot to be blessed with these two sweet boys. I always tell Steve that he’s my favorite dad. He is HILARIOUS, and always has a good attitude, even about things he doesn’t want to do. He is an amazing father who loves to spend time with his boys. He takes Drew adventuring through the woods, fishing, to sporting events, and more. Cara is a stay at home mom, can beat Steve at a game of golf with one hand tied behind her back, and is active in the local community. She is thrilled with baby Ryan, who could not be a sweeter, happier baby!

Minimalistic Newborn Photography

For this shoot, the family came to the studio for a minimalistic newborn shoot. Minimalistic newborn photography is my favorite way to document this early stage of life — sweet, classic, and timeless. Plus, our historic studio has a cozy lifestyle feel, so it was the perfect backdrop for the photographs of this precious family session.

To enjoy their images, Mom and Dad chose a gorgeous white leather album and wall gallery of three portraits.

Cara shared that Drew LOVES to pull out the photo album to look through the pictures as often as possible. The three wall portraits are hanging up in the master bedroom. That makes these family images the first thing they see when waking up and the last thing they see when going to sleep!

Babies grow so quickly, and these beautiful moments at the start of a newborn’s life are so important to document, print out, and enjoy. These early days as a family of four are so precious. It makes me so happy to know that images from this sweet family session are being enjoyed every day.

Cara and Steve, thank you for allowing me to document these precious moments for you and your family. It is a joy and a privilege to photograph your family.

If you’re an Indianapolis mom-to-be looking to document this beautiful time in your life, please make sure to contact me! I would love the opportunity to preserve these moments for you!
