Motherhood Photography: A Late Summer Maternity Session in Indianapolis, Indiana / by Lynsey Mason

I was so excited when Megan announced that she and her husband Brandon were expecting their baby girl last summer. Having photographed the birth of their youngest son Finley in 2016, it was great to get to see them again and to see how they have grown as a family. Finley was all of two, and their other children had shot up like weeds. I enjoyed roaming their property with them, soaking up the nature and the excitement of their impending home birth. It would be any day now.

As we walked along their paths, I saw so much love surrounding this new life. Everyone was hopping around in excitement while Mom and Dad followed along. There were so many moments of connection between everyone: their cute banter, exploration and wildness, and wonderful caring for one another. I loved that being outdoors was life for them, and that they were comfortable enough around me to be their truest selves. I know this family loves so hard, and they do it for each other.

I think the thing I love most about this family is that their children admire their parents so much. It’s incredible… I’ve really gotten to see how close knit they are as a unit. I feel very uplifted being around them! Check out their adorable images below. Leave a kind word or two :)
