Hey there! I'm so glad you're here! I'm Monica Brown, a wedding photographer from Indianapolis who loves to celebrate couples & photographers. I hope you enjoy browsing through recent work, advice for brides & photographers, and taking a peek into our personal life!
10 months. Wow. Time slow down PLEASE!! This month felt like summer was in full swing and we soaked up the sunshine, pool days,
-Celebrating Drew’s first Father’s Day!
-Visiting my immediate family in Ohio a few times
-Adding more finishing touches to her new room (aka a ceiling fan, re-attaching the stick on wallpaper that was in her nursery at our previous house, etc.)
-Meeting Uncle JT (one of Drew’s brothers) for the first time!! He left for Montenegro beginning of September 2020, she was born about a month later and he just came back to America July 3rd!
-Her first 4th of July (one of her mommy’s favorite holidays!)
-First, second & third time to the zoo! We got zoo passes so we’re taking advantage. The first and second zoo trips were within the same week ha.
-Starting her big girl stroller attachment- we’ve been going on a lot of walks so she’s been loving facing out!
-Multiple pool days with friends! She is a little water bug.
-Hiking with friends at Holliday Park.
-Outdoor lunch with my aunt, uncle & cousin while they were in town for the day.
-My photographer friends, Kelsie & Corey, meeting her for the first time!
-Attended her first garage sale.
-Baby play dates with her friend Genna- it is SO cute to watch them interact!!
-Seeing horses for the very first time (leave it to Total Wine to bring in Clydesdales for an event they were hosting on a random Thursday evening)
-Going to a museum for the first time! We saw the LUME exhibit at Newfields and it was amazing!!
-Her first 5K (in support of the Aruna project + Two Chicks Pebble Art)
–We photographed 4 weddings during this time so she got sweet time with her grandparents!!
-LUME exhibit at Newfields with one of my college besties, Hannah- HIGHLY recommend it!
-Cookouts with friends on their new patio!
-She LOVES standing & pulling herself up! A new favorite toy has been this walker
-She definitely knows what “no” means now and gives the most absurdly cute smile that I sometimes have to look away so she doesn’t see me smiling/takes me serious. We’re in trouble that’s for sure!! haha.
-Cradle cap made an appearance at the beginning of this month. We tried a new brush and that worked wonders!! It has stayed away since then.
-She has started to wave to people (and dogs)!
-She really enjoys dogs & is quite vocal about it. It’s really cute! Our neighbors have 2 so we make multiple trips outside a day to look at they when they bark.
-She’s still a water bug! Pool, bath time and her new splash pad. We have noticed that she’s afraid of running water from the tub though.
-She’s a very efficient army crawler
–She LOVES playing with her soft blocks
-We think she’ll be a reader because she always gravitates towards books to flip through and loves bedtime stories- it’s when she sits the most still! She especially loves the book called, “Who Said Peep”
Until next time friends!
