Matilda Jane - Cocktail party and Art fair

This weekend I was invited by my friend Emily to attend the Matilda Jane pre-show and cocktail party at 435 (435 is the Matilda Jane warehouse). We had so much fun!! Friday night I was able to take a tour around Matilda Jane (because I went with Emily and Nicole - our Indiana MJC reps). It was so fun to see all the patterns, fabric, ribbons, buttons, ideas, and shelves upon shelves of MJ clothing. We attended a cocktail party that night and enjoyed wonderful food and met some outstanding people. On Saturday morning it was time for the Art Fair. People drove and flew from all over the country to come to this event!!!! People were lined up hours before they opened the doors. I was able to capture some of the cutest little girls while waiting in line. I also ran into a photographer friend of mine (Michelle Huesgen of Untamed heart photography). I call her my friend because we have been on the same photography forum forever but this is the first time I was able to meet her. She is just as sweet and beautiful as I imagined (I am a huge fan of her work). Her daughter is the cute blondy with curls. I was able to get some fabulous clothing items for my upcoming sessions - Yeah!!!! So if you have a session with me you will have the option of having me dress your little girl (Great, right!!) Enjoy the pictures. -Loree
P.S. I just added the one of my little girl, Hannah, to the top. She was more than thrilled when I came home with a MJ outfit for her and her American girl. So cute!!

Nurture and Loree Alayne Photography teaming up

I am very excited to let you know about an upcoming event that I have been asked to participate in. Nurture is a fabulous new store for babies/kids age 0-6yrs. The store is located downtown on Mass Ave. The owner of Nurture also owns Silver in the City and At home in the city (two very cool stores). So here is the scoop .... I will be doing free photo sessions at Nurture (inside the store and at surrounding outdoor locations) on Aug 7th and 8th. To qualify for the session you have to buy an outfit from Nurture between now and Aug 7th. Your kiddos have to wear the outfit purchased from the store to the photo shoot. The photos will be displayed at the Fall Art Gallery Walk on Mass Ave from 5-9pm on Sept 4th. Several photos will be chosen as part of a display that will be in the store throughout the year. You will also receive a password to view and order pictures online from my website. See the attached postcard for more info. I would love to see some of your kids featured at the gallery walk and in the store this year. I took my kids out for a session this week (wearing clothes from Nurture) to give you an idea of what to expect. Feel free to call or email me with any questions regarding this event. Thanks so much, Loree

Coverdale Family | Indianapolis Children's Photographer

I have to be honest and say that I am totally in love with this location and the pictures of this session. Brad and Melissa are beautiful people (inside and out) and their kids are gorgeous (and very well behaved I might add!!). We had such a wonderful time together. The location is family owned and has been in the family for a long time. The Coverdale's have moved out of state so coming home and having photos taken in some of their favorite locations means the world to them. These pictures will remind them of family, of precious memories, and most importantly of home. There are so many wonderful pictures from this session so it was hard to pick just a few for the blog. Brad and Melissa, I hope you enjoy these pictures for years to come!!!
