Wilson Family: Lifestyle family session

Each year I travel to Danville, IL to photograph the Wilson family. We had been prepping for this session since last years session. Sarah had the idea to do the lifestyle session once they completed their new kitchen. What could be better than baking cookies in a new kitchen?

Lifestyles are my jam because they capture the most genuine side of the people in front of the camera. Also, kids really love this type of session too because its an instant reward between the cookie dough and cookies!! Peep the fun below!

Christy + Blake + Baby Bump

It’s funny how photography works. One summer will be filled with ALL of the family sessions, one summer will be filled with seniors the next something different! I was talking with a friend lately about how there must be something in the water because I’ve photographed ALL of the baby bumps lately. And they’ve been so beautiful.

Christy and Blake suggested water for their session and I loved the idea. Little did I know we would have THE perfect day for such a session. Christy was a trooper because this little hidden gem of a place is behind some baseball fields, which apparently were holding tournaments during our slotted session time. She made baring her bump with a possible crowd looking on look effortless and magical.

You both are going to be incredible parents and I’m so excited for you to bring life into this world!

sidenote: her Becky shirt is on point and I think everyone who is pregnant should have one!

Baby Boom

I’m convinced this is the year of the baby. Within the last couple weeks I photographed a few newborn sessions, baby milestone sessions, a birth, a gender reveal and a maternity session. I’m not mad about it. I’ve loved seeing many of these couples and or families I’ve photographed in the past grow and add an addition or two to their crew. It’s what makes photography so inspiring and so much fun!

Below are a few favorites from Makenzie and Mitch’s maternity session. I loved that Makenzie had the idea to incorporate the rainbow in representation of her rainbow baby. It’s such an inspiration to other’s who have been in similar situations and or are still waiting for their miracle to see someone who has weathered the storm and can be so open about their experience. Plus, her belly is banging and she looks incredible! Mitch is one lucky guy!

Side note, Louie (dog) killed this Session with his good looks and love of the camera!

Twinning

Cait and her family are goals. Seriously, though. Through the chaos of having four children, at one point all under the age of four, they seriously make it look like a breeze.

I had been DYING to visit Cait since she relocated from Indy to Cincinnati and had these little sugars. Some may know that Cait and I shoot quite a bit together and she’s kind of become my life coach in a sense. It’s like she somehow knows when I need some encouragement or someone to just work things out with. Through having babies and being in different cities, she never fails at being a consistent friend and someone I cherish and value so much in my life.

Below are a few favorites from their in home lifestyle session with their new additions, Hayes and Ephraim // 1 month old.

P.s. Hire me and let me shoot your family chaos in your homes. Things seriously become magical.

Wilson Family

I feel like I should, yet again, introduce myself. It’s been a minute, but you guys a lot has happened since my last blog post! For one thing, I moved back home from DC and into a photo studio in downtown Crawfordsville IN. Follow me on Instagram (@abbeyelainephotography) for weekly studio vibes to see what’s happening inside.

I need to give a shout out to the families who have been in it to win it with me since the beginning. This family being one. I can’t even explain how beautiful their family is. You’ll just have to see for yourselves below. A lot has changed in their family as well including a  new little sugar. I love growing with my families and photographing their realness, hashtag blessed. For the past couple years I’ve made the trip to IL and they never disappoint. Also they have the best baby names, Camp, Cooper and the newest little girl Charlie. Goals. All of them.

McIntyre Family

You guys, I’ve been photographing them since 2012. That’s before Briella, before Drew was old enough to be in school, and before I was even trying to do this photo thing for real. Last year Bri was like “nope, not going to smile.” This year WE GOT SMILES! And back to school shoes for Bri. Which  I refuse to believe she’s that old now. Anyways, let’s all pretend they will stay this little as we peek at their session below!

Nichols Family

Somehow we squeezed this session into my marathon of photo sessions two weeks ago. I’m so SO glad we did. I’ve been photographing them for a few years now from special events, pregnancies, anniversaries and NOW the entire family plus the newest addition. The wheat field and their grandmothers old stomping grounds are so special.

False names and a lot of smiling

I’m the first to admit I am terrible with names. These boys thought it’d be cute to make up new ones that I somehow COULD remember. So here’s the Walters family, the red head we will call Jeff ha!

Magic Sessions

I refuse to photograph Jill and her boys at any other time but sunset. It never fails to bring magic. The sun, the silly boys and the interaction this time with her mom and them. Lord help me. See for yourself! 2016-07-04_00012016-07-04_00022016-07-04_00032016-07-04_0004

Hedge Family

I’ve known this family since high school and it’s been amazing to see them grow. Every session Hadley reassures me that I am funny and that’s just a bonus! It amazes me how quickly they grow and I’m DYING for Holly to make her debut. Peep their session below!
