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. 

Megan&Jason {Engaged}

Every year Megan & Jason take a trip up to the lovely and quaint town of Holland, MI to celebrate being together. On one of those special little trips Jason asked Megan to spend the rest of forever with him…And she said yes. Nothing quite makes me happier than photographing my client's in places that are special to them. So when Megan told me they decided they wanted their engagement photos taken in the town that was already so special to them I was totally giddy. In just a little over a month these two will be tying the knot, and I am so completely honored to be the one to capture it all.

Our tour of {Italy}

As some of you might have seen, my boyfriend and I recently took a week's vacation to tour Italy! We got to visit Florence, Venice, & Rome…and let me tell you, it was truly a dream come true. I will never ever ever try to visit three incredible cities in a 5 day span, it was simply not enough time to take all the beauty and history all in. But such is life, deadlines and school work were calling us back home. Though we had a lot of traveling to do and carrying my big ol camera around was not always the most convenient option, I did manage to take quite a few photos to document our trip! Here are some of the shots I took in all three cities. Enjoy! :)
