Gianna Sitter Session – Carmel Indiana Family Photography

This sweet baby girl is Gianna and she was full of smiles for her sitter session. This session was moved outdoors due to my studio being closed because of CORONA. However, I’m pretty obsessed with these images and I’m so glad we did move it outdoors.

This sweet girl happens to belong to one of my favorite people and the best physical therapists in Indy. We met when I was going though some infertility stuff between having my 1st and 2nd child. She is not only a great physical therapist but also a kind soul and someone great to talk to. If you are experiencing pain, trying to get pregnant, or currently pregnant then you need to see her. You won’t regret it!

It’s no surprise that these two beautiful people had this beautiful baby girl. She has the best cheeks, blue eyes that are so blue you can even tell their color in a black and white image, and a happy little smile. I can’t wait to continue watching her grow throughout her first year.

Newborn baby girl, three stunning sisters, a football player, and a model family

I’m pretty sure this family should be a professional model family. They were stunning – seriously stunning! In real life, they aren’t models. This sweet baby’s dad is a professional football player. I just loved having these guys in the studio. This little girls big sisters couldn’t have been more loving and sweet to their baby sister. It’s safe to say that this baby girl will never have a shortage of hugs and kisses. Baby sister didn’t seem to mind all the attention. She even gave us a few little newborn smiles throughout the session.  All of the photos turned out so well and I  just loved their outfits!

Outdoor 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Child Photography

Being closed for two months will really throw things off for lots of clients. However, most of my clients have been super understanding and flexible! Since shooting outdoors opened up before my studio could we rescheduled a number of cake smash sessions to be outdoor cake smash sessions. I’m going to have to say, I’m not even a little sad about this! These sessions are stunning. Look at that lovely sunrise right against that cute baby skin. What is not to love about this?!

Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited for the studio is open again. That being said, if clients still wanted to schedule outdoor cake smash sessions I would be game for that too!!

And Then There Were 4 – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This was my last session that happened in the studio before the Corona lock down. It was a fantastic one. I mean, look at this adorable family! Big sister was just over one and still a baby herself. She was such a cutie and so good with her new baby brother. I adore the outfit colors that mom went with for family family pictures – they are soft almost neutral but still have some personality to them. Baby brother had the best squishy cheeks (kind of like his sister) and was a cuddly little guy.

Oh man – I’m so glad the studio is open again and I can cuddle all those new babies. Bring me the all babies!! I sure did miss those baby cuddles!!

Newborn Gabriel In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session in Indianapolis

These beautiful moms are near and dear to my heart as I photographed their engagement and wedding 5 (ish) years ago. So they are long time clients. When they told me they were expecting I couldn’t have been more thrilled and excited for them!!!

Meet newborn Gabriel. He was born about a month early and I’m SO glad he was!  This was one of my last sessions before the world of photography stopped due to the Corona virus. If this little guy had stuck to his due date I wouldn’t have yet been able to photograph him and see his amazing moms and adorable nursery.

Even though Gabriel was born early he was as perfect as could be. He was cute, cuddly and content in the arms of his mothers. He had an adorable rainbow themed nursery that was just fitting for him. His moms’ thought of every detail of his nursery and newborn session with personalized clothes and all. So cute!

The rest of the house also made for some great images too. I loved the large windows and all the fun colors in the home. We had a great session and I just loved meeting this sweet boy and catching up with his parents!

Who knew social distancing could look so good – Indianapolis Family Photographer

This was my very first session back after being closed down for 2 months-ish (I’ve kind of lost track of time at this point.) Let me tell you it felt SO good to be behind the camera again!! It felt so good to do something that felt normal. I was wearing a mask and keeping 6 feet between myself and my clients but it didn’t even matter. This felt more normal then anything I’ve done in the last few months. I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t be able to make kids smile with a mask on. That wasn’t the case! These kiddos loved hanging out even though I had a mask on and couldn’t touch them. So fun.

The Last Fresh 48 Session Before Corona – Indianapolis Photographer

Writing this post seems super surreal. When I did this session there were rumbles of Corona and at that point it was more of a joke then anything else. Colleges (and all schools) were still still in session and they were having Corona parties. The hospital was more concerned about the Flu then Corona. No one (or at least not me) had any idea what was coming! I had no idea this would be the last time I was allowed into the hospital for any session for the foreseeable future.

I LOVE shooting in hospitals. I love births and Fresh 48 sessions. The hospital is a magical place. Had I known that this would be my last visit to the hospital for a sessions for a while I may have spent a little more time there or treasured my time there just a little bit more. Heck – I may have even knocked on a few doors and offered to shoot for free (that’s not creepy – right?!). That is how much I love shooting these sessions and it breaks my heart I won’t be able to do it again for a while.

Even though I wish I would have known it was my last time in the hospital for a while, it was still a fantastic session. These two beautiful Moms were wedding clients of mine. I adore following along and capturing their life story for them.

Stay tuned. I’ll be posting their in-home lifestyle newborn session soon. You won’t want to miss it.

If you are looking for an Indianapolis Fresh 48 photographer be sure to let me know. I love shooting at the local hospitals and hopefully restrictions to do so will be lifted soon. I can’t wait to meet your new little baby in the hospital, in my studio, or in a in-home newborn session.

Andrew’s Outdoor Cake Smash Session – Indianapolis Photography

It’s been a joy photographing little Andrew over the last year! This session was the icing on the cake to conclude his grow-with-me package. He has always been such a happy easygoing little guy and he didn’t disappoint for his 1st birthday cake smash. This session got pushed back a few times due to COVID so Andrew was a touch over 1 when this session happened, but he didn’t seem to mind much!!

We also had to move the session outdoors so we could practice social distancing while shooting. I know that this wasn’t exactly what we had originally planned for Andrew’s 1st birthday cake smash but I’m pretty obsessed with the results! I just love that sunrise light and adorable baby smiles. I’m not sad one bit to be doing outdoor cake smash sessions!

Outdoor Newborn Sessions – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

You guys – I love shooting in my studio but I also have a new love… shooting newborns outdoors! I’ve shot a handful of outdoor newborn sessions before COVID came to town but I’ve fallen in love with these sessions all over again. These sessions are a great option if you want a low contact session (I don’t even have to touch the baby and I’m 6 feet away!). I’m also happy to wear a mask on top of that if it makes you feel more comfortable.

But seriously how stunning is this family with their new baby girl! So stunning.  I’ve been photographing this sweet family for years and it’s only fitting that I photograph them with their newest addition. The baby isn’t within that 14 day new baby window but with these outdoor sessions it doesn’t even matter. In fact I think that the pictures are made even better by the fact that the baby is older. Look at that eye contact! You don’t get that from at 2-week-old.

Anyways, maybe I’m just on a high from being able to photograph babies again. But I’m obsessed. Bring me all those newborns (old newborns or young newborns) and let’s shoot them outside at sunrise (like this session) or sunset!

Coronavirus & Changes in the Studio – KristeenMarie Photography

With the studio re-opening on the horizon, I thought I would hop on to give you some additional information on how things are being handled in the studio.

Please know that I’m doing what I can to prevent the spread of Coronavirus. That being said there is always a risk when interacting with others. My goal is to reduce the risks as much as possible.

Here is what I’m doing and what I’m asking of you…

  • Studio Sick Policy – If you or anyone in your home is sick or has been sick with the last 48 hours please let me know and we can reschedule your session. These is no fee to reschedule your session. I will also provide you with the same courtesy.
  • Guest Policy – Please only bring the people being photographed. No extended family or guests will be permitted in the studio.
  • Shoes – Please remove your shoes upon arriving at the studio.
  • Hand Washing – When you arrive after removing your shoes, please wash your hands. If anyone coughs, sneezes, or uses the restrooms I ask that you also wash your hands. I will be doing the same.
  • Masks – I will be wearing a mask throughout your session. You are welcome to wear one as well when you are not being photographed.
  • No Drinks/Snacks Provided – I will not be offering drinks, snacks or treats at this time. If you have little ones, I would encourage you to bring a treat for them (just in case we need some bribery!). You are welcome to bring your own water or other needs.
  • Air Flow – If the weather is permitting, the windows in the studio will be open to increase air flow.
  • Cleaning – Everything that baby touches will be washed/sanitized between uses. The studio will also be sanitized between clients. This was always something that has been done in the studio, but we are taking this very seriously and will be extra thorough.

If for any reason you are not comfortable coming to the studio you do also have additional options.

Option one – I’m currently able to do all sessions outdoors – newborn, cake smash, milestones, family, etc. I’m actually really loving doing these sessions outside! It’s possible to do social distancing outdoors (staying 6 feet apart) so spreading the virus is reduced significantly.

Option two – You also have the option to do your session in your home. This is a great option for newborns!

Option three – If none of these options suite you I’m happy to refund your deposit.

Please know that I’m doing everything I can to keep clients happy and safe during this difficult time.
