There is something so pure and simple about a family snuggling on a bed and sunlight light streaming through the windows. Everyone feels so relaxed together and natural connection is easy to come by.
I am just loving the simple white background and natural window light in Leo’s photos. All of the attention is drawn to the details like his little fingers, toes, flakes and wrinkles. It’s absolutely crazy how quickly newborns grow and change. Just two weeks later and he likely does not look the same anymore. I’m so glad we were able to capture Leo and these little details during his first few days earth-side.
Hot off the press… this lovely family’s apple orchard spring session from this past weekend! I met Manuela last year in my MOPS (Mother of Preschoolers) group here in West Lafayette and immediately was drawn to her with her years living and traveling abroad and Austrian background. You know those people who are just super interesting to talk to and have so many passions and interests? Yeah, that’s Manuela!
Manuela also has a love for photography and it is so fun to connect with others who really value photos and capturing moments with loved ones. We had a lot of fun running around the apple orchard, playing games, picking dandelions and snapping pictures along the way. It was a chilly evening, as are most spring evenings in Indiana, but we were thankful for no rain since it seems to be raining almost everyday right now.
I couldn’t believe how lucky we got when I stumbled upon these blue Glory of the Snow flowers that literally carpeted the nature trails behind the Haan Mansion in Lafayette! Ivena was absolutely stunning in her pink and orange floor length dresses, which just perfectly highlighted her adorable baby bump! We had a lot of fun traipsing around the woods finding the best spots and talking about her labor and delivery plan for little Miss A. Ivena due any day now and I could not be more excited for you all as you welcome this precious little girl into your arms!
