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!

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!

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.

Galloway Family

If you catch baby fever easily don’t read this post. Seriously. Because I’m about to show you some of the cutest sugars. Amanda and I didn’t meet prior to their session, but you know when you meet someone and it feels like you’ve known them forever? That’s exactly how I felt! They were warm and inviting the minute I showed up at their home. Then they took me to a magical place otherwise known as their family farm. The weather was perfect, they were perfect. This session gave me all of the feels and heart emojis. Check them out!

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.

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.

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!

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!
