Children Photographer

Trey Sean { Two Years | South Bend Lifestyle Family Session at St. Patrick's Park | Shelby Chari Photography}

The Millea family is extra close to my heart. I have been photographing them since Trey was still in his momma's belly and now he is TWO! I love being able to watch my clients grow. Words seriously cannot express how special that is to me. Corey, Bri, and Trey are anything but ordinary and absolutely fantastic. Sessions with them are a BLAST and there is never ever a dull moment and there is guaranteed to be a hint of Blackhawks gear sprinkled in. ;) I loved being able to capture them, well, being THEM. Here are some of my favorites from Trey's two year shoot!

Landon Newborn Session {Northern Indiana Portrait Photographer - Shelby Chari Photography }

Earlier this year I announced I would no longer be offering posed studio Newborn sessions. I won't be stopping newborns altogether but simply gearing more towards a lifestyle look and feel for my work rather than posed/prop photos. I scheduled a few last newborn sessions for early this year before I work on getting rid of my extra newborn props and turning my studio space into a bigger office. Sweet baby Landon is the very last baby boy I have had the pleasure to photograph in the posed newborn style. One thing I will miss most is the downtime waiting for babies to fall deeply to sleep so we can pose them, I love just gawking at beautiful new babies with new parents. I love seeing the joy in their eyes. I went to school with Landon's mom & dad so seeing them become new parents was really something special, I am so happy to have been able to capture their sweet new baby boy and all of his newness. Here are some of my favorites from his session. 

Catt {Family} + Nikolai {10 Months}

One of my favorite parts of being a family & children photographer is being able to watch families grow. I especially love photographing newborns and being able to photograph them again later in their first year, so much happens that first year and it is truly incredible to see the little people they become. I shot Nikolai's newborn session last May and seeing how big and grown up he has gotten was so fun. Working with the Catt family was a blast, I LOVE big families! All three girls have such unique personalities, and little Nikolai is a riot! Clinton & Tasha shower them all with so much love, I can't wait to meet their 5th baby arriving later this year!
