Kramer-Cox & Walters Families

Thirteen. Thirteen is the number of times I have photographed this group of people over the course of 5+ years. From newborn sessions to family sessions, babies to big kids, this group has stuck with me for THIRTEEN SESSIONS. To say it’s fun they’re fun to photograph is an enormous understatement and watching all these kiddos grow up from behind my camera is just such a huge blessing. Enjoy!

If you’re asking children (and who are we kidding, adults too!) to take photos for an hour, silly poses are a MUST.

Did I mention that the Walters Family has a SUPER exciting announcement?

Kristi, Brandon, and Addie have waited SO long and worked SO hard for this rainbow baby. I was beyond thrilled to be able to capture this announcement for them! An let’s talk about how pumped Addie is about being a big sister!

Kanda, Baxter, Adleigh, Briggs, Brady, Kristi, Brandon, Addie, and Baby W,

It is a privilege and so much fun to be able to photograph you all every year (orrrrrr multiple times a year ;)). Thank you for trusting me with such precious milestones in your lives. Love you all dearly!

Until next time,

Molly

Delong Family

After rescheduling due to the COLDEST weather in more than a decade (literally), I was so excited to meet Miss Rheagan and her parents a couple weeks ago! Rheagan recently turned one and was easily one of the smiliest one year olds I’ve met! When she wasn’t playing with blocks, crawling through her tent, or cooking at her (adorable) mini kitchen, Rheagan would just sit and grin so sweetly right.at.the.camera! I hope you can experience her sweet personality through these photos! Enjoy!

Delong Family,

It was such a pleasure photographing the three of you! Sweet Rheagan was such a ray of sunshine on a VERY cold day. Thank you for letting me into your home and capturing this special time in your lives.

Until next time!

Walker James Newborn

Walker James made his way into this world in a difficult way and one that’s near and dear to my heart. Arriving early and lifeless, he fought his way through an extended NICU stay filled with respiratory support, therapies, and feeding tubes. When Walker’s aunt messaged me about gifting a newborn session to his parents, I was so excited to combine both my love for photography and my love for preemie infants! Meeting Walker, you would never know he’d been through any of this. He is a happy boy who loves to be held and cuddled and who smiled in SO many of our shots. His parents are fighters, too; they’ve remained strong throughout the adversity of having a medically fragile baby and they have so much love for sweet Walker (and his bulldog sister, Boston! :) ). Enjoy!

IMG_1122.jpg

IMG_1160.jpg

IMG_1230.jpg

Walker was gifted this adorable onesie by a family whose daughter died during her NICU stay. They honored her memory by providing these onesies to all the little fighters who were admitted after her. Such a beautiful sentiment for these babies who endure in a short time more than they should have to endure in a lifetime. Walker’s bracelet was made for him as a nod to his father’s employer, Wabash College.

Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy! He is truly a fighter and such a blessing. Enjoy every minute!

Until next time,

Molly

Timmons Family

Loved catching up with these kiddos again last month!  Isaiah continues to be one of the kindest boys I know and Lila is warming up to me more and more with each session ;).  Sweet little Easton was super chill, too! Enjoy!

It is always SUCH a pleasure to spend an hour or so with you all. I've said it a million times, but you are raising three amazing kiddos.  They just get better and better each time :)

Until next time!

Molly

Summers Family

Ohh this session was SO fun, you guys! Sweet Ellie and Quinn were super adorable and how cute are their matching outfits!?  We had perfect weather and a beautiful setting at Heritage Park in Fishers. Looking forward to more opportunities with this sweet family of 4! Enjoy!

Until next time!

Olivia Kate: Newborn

This spring was a season of newborns! Miss Olivia Kate entered the world in early April and I was fortunate enough to meet her a few weeks later! She slept so well for our session and big sisters Hailey and Emily loved on her the whole time (and even let me play with their toys while sister was eating :)). Enjoy!

Tim & Kara,

Thank you so much for allowing me to photograph another one of your beautiful daughters!  I always have a blast with your girls and I can't wait to see Olivia's personality develop as she gets older; I can only hope she's as sweet and spunky as Hailey and Emily :)

Until next time!

Molly

Calvin Grey: Newborn

Sweet Calvin is a few months old now, but I still wanted to share his session. Calvin was a few weeks old at his newborn session (#thirdkid, as his mama put it ;)), but he was a DREAM for the entire session! Sleepy, comfy, and loved being held by big brother Eli and big sister Emma (both of whom loved helping me with many parts of our session :)). Enjoy!

I just love your little (growing!) family!  Thank you for raising three beautiful, smart, kind children.  The world needs more kiddos like yours!  Looking forward to many more opportunities to photograph you all!

Until next time!

Molly

Norah Joy Newborn

Sweet Norah Joy made her entrance into the world back in April and I was so honored to be able to capture these first shots of her a week or so later!  She was such a calm, cooperative baby for the entire session and big brother Ethan was such a big helper (and so in love with his baby sister!).

Sweet Norah is SUCH a blessing! I'm so thrilled for you guys and can't wait to watch her and Ethan grow up from behind the lens! Thanks for another opportunity to photograph your adorable family.

Until next time!

Easton Hollis: Newborn

Another adorable baby to grace the blog in 2018! And this family is one that's very near and dear to my heart. These babies have grown up behind my camera for years now and they're some of the sweetest kiddos around. It was so fun to watch both Lila and Isaiah be big brother & sister to Easton during this shoot.  Baby Easton is one lucky boy! Enjoy!

Timmons Family,

Thanks for giving us another perfect baby! :) I seriously love photographing you guys and the photo above shows why. Life with three kids will be an adjustment, but it's going to be SO fun and I can't wait to capture more of it from behind the lens.

Until next time!

Molly

Leo Robert: Newborn

I'm not always for resolutions, but here's a goal for 2018: blog after each session!  I have a long list of sessions from the end of 2017 that, let's face it, are not going to make it on this blog. I had a plan to backlog them, but I figured a fresh start might be a better approach.  

So here we are, a new year and a new little newborn to get us started! Baby Leo was such a sweetheart for our session and he stayed cozy and sleepy the majority of the time!  And big sister Nina? Don't even get me started. This little gal is SPUNKY--as in dancing around while wearing 3 of my prop tutus while baby brother took a nursing break. :) I loved spending the morning with the Eckerle family and hope you all enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Until next time!

Dieringer Family

A few months ago, I had the pleasure of hanging out with this sweet family and celebrating Wyatt's milestone FIRST birthday! Guys, how cute is this: the theme of his birthday party later that day? Balls. The kid loves balls! Such a fun, simple idea that Shannon made into an adorable birthday party theme.  Big Brother Titus was as adorable as he has always been in previous shoots and we lucked out with great weather after some nasty rain earlier in the week. Enjoy!

Shannon & Andy,

Thank you so much for again entrusting me with capturing these special moments for you! I love spending time with you guys and chatting with Ty :). I can't believe Wyatt is a year old already, but I can't wait for future sessions and watching both boys grow from behind the camera! 

Until next time!

Molly

Newport Family

Alright, guys. I have another amazing MJP veteran family to share with you today! The Newports are self-described as "a hot mess", but I couldn't disagree more.  This bunch of kiddos makes every session SO much fun and their spunky personalities make for the BEST candid shots. Amy contacted me about this shoot after getting some not-so-promising news about the health of sweet Gracie dog :(. Gracie has been a part of every family session I've photographed (which is a quite a few!) and we certainly weren't going to risk her not being a part of this one.  Get ready for a whole bunch of cuteness and love from this family. Enjoy!

Newports,

I love you guys. And I love taking your photos.  You have raised three amazing kiddos and one amazing pup. Thanks for being so candid, playful, and fun.  And most importantly, whether you think you're a hot mess or not, thanks for being YOU!

Until next time!

Molly

Kiel Family

Another great session from earlier this summer! This family has spent lots of time behind my camera and I always have so much fun with them! These boys are so happy and sweet and oh-so-photogenic and I hope you enjoy looking at these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them! 

Kiel Family,

Thank you so much for spending your evening with me and letting me photograph your sweet boys. I enjoy every session with you guys and look forward to many more in the future!

Until next time!

Molly

Bates Family

Earlier this summer, the Bates family and I met up in downtown Carmel on a beautiful morning for  this family session. These kids...I tell you what. They're two of the sweetest kiddos! Super expressive, super happy, and super smart. Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed this session!

Bates Family,

You know I love you guys! I genuinely look forward to our time together and hearing all the funny things that Vivian has to say! Can't wait to watch these kiddos grow up behind my camera in future sessions. 

Until next time!

Molly 

Bauman Family

Another session from earlier this summer! Allison is a coworker and friend of mine and I was SO excited when she asked me to photograph their sweet little family of three! Jackson is at the adorable age of 6 months in these shots and in a few short months, I'll be photographing him at 1 year! Time is flying! Enjoy a flashback to this session :)

Bauman Family,

Thank you so much for trusting me with these important photos of Jackson and your family! This age is always one of my favorites to photograph and you all made it even more fun!

Until next time!

Molly

Wheelock Family

Whoa, I'm behind on blogging! This is a session from WAY back in the summer, but still worth sharing. The Wheelock family and I battled multiple reschedules due to crazy rain storms, but we finally got together on a beautiful evening in Zionsville. These girls are super sweet and warmed up so easily to the camera. Enjoy!

Wheelock Family,

Thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos again this year. I so enjoyed spending time with you and look forward to continuing to watch the girls grow in future sessions!

Until next time!

Molly

Harts Family

My first session of what's shaping up to be a busy Spring season! Emily & Jared are related to a family whom I absolutely adore and have photographed many times in the past; because of this, I knew this would be such a fun session! The weather was perfect and Theodore was quite the little ham for the camera. Enjoy!

IMG_3149.JPG

Harts Family,

Thank you so much for trusting me with your family photos and photos of sweet Theodore. He is an absolute doll and I loved watching him cheese it up for the camera! Can't wait for more sessions with you all in the future and watching little man grow from behind the camera :)

Until next time!

Molly

Claire Carter: Newborn

My first newborn session of 2017 was a fun one! Miss Claire Carter Ridenour arrived a few weeks early so I got to meet her a little earlier than planned :). She was such a gem for all of these photos and big sister Olivia did such a great job helping and holding Claire for their shots together.  Can't wait to watch these girls grow up together! Enjoy!

Brooke & Colin,
Thank you so much for trusting me with these photos of your newest addition. Claire is absolutely perfect and Olivia is, well, even better than she was last time we met. :) Enjoy these new moments as a family of 4!

Until next time!

Molly

Kramer-Cox-Walters Families

So excited to bring this session to you today! These photos are from WAY back in the fall, but who doesn't need a reminder of nice, warm, autumn weather on a cold, dreary January day? :) These two families hold a very special place in my heart.  I have been privileged enough to photograph lots of family milestones for each and look forward to continued sessions in 2017!  Prepare yourselves for some serious cousin-love!

IMG_0636.JPG

Kristi, Kanda, Baxter, and Brandon,

Thank you so much for allowing me to capture your photos again in 2016! I hope you know how much I look forward to our sessions and seeing your smart, sassy little girls! Looking forward to more fun in 2017!

Until next time!

Molly

James Samuel: Newborn

Baby James came into this world on November 20 and not even a week later, we had our first introduction! I knew this little man would be special because 'James' is one of my favorite names (which makes me sad, seeing as we can likely never use it ourselves...James Jones, anyone? Don't think so!). Anyway, this little guy was such a dream for his session and big sister Vivian was equally as adorable and helpful :). Enjoy!

Rachelle & Landry,

As always, I so enjoyed photographing your family in 2016! Congrats on your [now 2-month old] bundle of joy. He is truly a gift. 

Until next time!

Molly
