Monnett – Maternity

Morgan and I have known each other for awhile now, but she has semi recently joined AEP as my assistant and holy wowza I don’t know what I’d do without her. It all started when we had a brief conversation during one of her family sessions. She mentioned that she could totally be my assistant if I felt like I needed one. I didn’t know what I was missing in my life until she came in and showed me. You guys, I was a hot mess. I still am, but I’m a better hot mess version because of her ha!

I love her family so much. Lyla comes into the studio when Morgan works and she’s kind of become my little buddy. I’ve noticed her opening up to  me and I’ve gotten to know her sassy quirkiness throughout the few months they’ve been helping me out! She’s so dang smart y’all. Like I can’t deal with how smart she is. It’s going to be amazing to see her interact with her little brother.

Also, can I just shout out Brandon real quick? I know he gets to hear all of my ups and downs in this crazy owning my own business world when I’m corresponding with Morgan and he is such a trooper! He even talks things out and provides ideas when we are in a bind. I promise, okay I’ll try, not to text during dinner time and have Morgan break her own rules Brandon!

Peep their magical maternity/ family session below!

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!

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!

All the squish.

I am that person that encourages all of my friends to have babies so I can admire, buy all the baby leggings for them, and take all of the photographs I want of them and then return them when they cry or need a diaper change ;). I love every bit of the belly rolls, squishy cheeks, baby lips and button noses. Meet Beckett, fresh and 7 days new during his little session!

Kellan and Family

Hi! I feel like I should introduce myself again. It’s been that long since I’ve blogged so I thought I’d hit everyone with one of the cutest babes ever! But really, this child. I can’t even begin to explain his sessions. They are a photographers dream in that he shows up smiling and the rest is simple! Also, the bond he has with both of his parents… my goodness the feels. See for yourself!

Kellan

Can we please discuss this child for a quick minute? But really, the child has beautiful big blue eyes. Not only that, but he is the easiest most chill baby I have ever been around. EVER. And then there was his grandma. I have known Jackie for what seems like a very long time. Recently, however, I have been contemplating hiring her as my child whisperer. She and Kellan’s mom, Ali, are totally responsibly for these BIG smiles. Thank you two for being so great to work with and creating such a fun experience for me 🙂
