Things have been busy in the Stewart household! Our little munchkin, Finnegan Joseph, surprised us by being born 3 weeks early! He was 7 lbs. 3 oz. and was 20 1/4″ long. Things went very smoothly for me during my labor and delivery, other than the fact that I was completely surprised at how early he arrived. I had to be induced with Liam, and was almost 41 weeks when Liam was born. So you can imagine my surprise when I was admitted to the hospital!

I’ve included some pictures here from a Fresh 48 session I did with Finn while we were still in the hospital. A lot of new parents like the idea of a Fresh 48 session. These sessions are done during your stay at the hospital, and you can scheudle them at your leisure. There are still a ton of great shots you get from these sessions, and they are a little more laid back than a typical birthing session. Contact me for more information about scheduling a Fresh 48 session.

I’ve been purposeful about keeping my “big” camera out, and capturing some of Finn’s first moments with family, as well as other “firsts”, like his first bath. My mom gave Liam his first bath, so I thought it was fitting that she gave Finn his first bath as well.

Finn is now three weeks old, and I was able to sneak some time in at my studio with him, Liam, and my husband. I know I will cherish these photos for years to come…I already feel like time is flying by with him! I can’t believe how great Liam is handling all of this change (I’m sure I just jinxed myself) and what a loving and caring big brother he is already. He loves being around Finn and asks to hold him at least once per day:)

To my wonderful clients: Thank you for being so patient with me as I rescheduled several sessions. I am eager to get back to work soon, so you will be hearing from me in the near future! Also, thank you to those clients who are still patiently waiting on galleries. You will also be hearing from me soon!

I hope you enjoy this little peek into our world!

Being an Indianapolis children’s photographer so much fun! I get to work with the nicest, most genuine people that have become friends over the years. I can’t believe I will be taking Abram’s one year pictures in the next few weeks! This is his nine month session that we were able to squeeze in before the weather got cold and yucky in Indiana. I’m missing this type of weather right now. Even though it was windy the day we did his session, Abram was still content playing in the grass and exploring everything around him! Abram is such a little ham, and I have so enjoyed taking his pictures over the last few months. Stay tuned for his one year session in the next few weeks!

  • Lacey - He’s so cute! I can’t wait to see his one year session!ReplyCancel

Welcome back! I’m intentionally trying to blog more often, and in this crazy busy world, that can be hard to do sometimes. This week has been a little busy, considering we only have about 4 weeks left before we meet baby number 2! We’re so excited to meet him, but we’re also trying to finish up those last minute things on our to-do list before he gets here.

Anyway…I did the Wallace’s family session back before Christmas, and we had so much fun! My husband has known Scott since high school, and he was the best man in our wedding. I actually shot the Wallace’s wedding when it was their turn to be married! We always have fun when we’re with them, and I can’t believe how grown up the girls look! Take a minute to check out their in-studio session. Enjoy!

People often do not realize the hard work that goes into newborn photography…the setting up, the posing, and the editing are all worth it to have wonderful pictures to capture such a special time. I think that’s why I love newborn photography so much. It is so rewarding to put in the hours of the session and the editing to have such a wonderful outcome. I have know Quinn and Rachel since high school, and I was so excited to be able to photograph their first baby, Graham. He was so cooperative…and he has the best hair! Enjoy his newborn session!
