Just in time for Christmas baby Jack has arrived. As a Madison Indiana photographer I love doing newborn portrait sessions and this one was extra special as I had photograph baby Jack’s parents on one of the most important days of their life. Baby photography in Madison Indiana is just a small portion of what I do. Most often I am photographing brides and grooms and all of the details associated with their wedding day celebration, but every year I also spend some time doing other forms of portraiture. I photograph families and do senior portraits. I have repeatedly photographed proposals as they happen. Additionally, each year I get the opportunity to photograph the growing families of my former wedding clients. I love when couples who had me document their wedding day also invite me to document their new little ones. What an honor it is! I would love to be the family photographer for each of my clients as they step into each new stage of life. Ashley and Nathan had a beautiful wedding that was such a joy to photograph and even made the pages of a wedding magazine. Now they have been blessed with a wonderful little gift just before the holidays. As a Madison Indiana newborn photographer I was honored to create these images of five day old baby Jack. My favorite has to be this first image with Jack comfortably sleeping in his father’s arms. We also did some playful Christmas photos with Jack in a Santa suit, wrapped as a present under the tree, as a reindeer, in a sled, in a stocking and a top Santa’s bag. Baby photography in Madison Indiana is always fun and as I joyfully edited through these images I could not help but think about the birth of the little baby for which we celebrate Christmas to begin with. God Himself chose to come down and humble Himself, becoming one of us and being born as a helpless infant. Jesus Christ came and lived among us. He made himself small and then went on to live a perfect life. He never made any mistakes, He never broke any rules. He was sinless. And then after showing his great power over sickness, death and the whole universe itself, He chose to lay down His life as a substitute for many. Jesus died so that’s screw ups like you and me, sinners who have not kept God’s law, could be saved from the just punishment that we deserve. Jesus is the greatest gift that has ever been given. This Christmas season every time you see a beautiful little baby like Jack remember that God himself provided a perfect, innocence sacrifice to take our place.
