A Walk in Central Park – Carmel, Indiana Maternity Photography

This session is one of the first sessions I’ve done at Central Park in Carmel. It is quickly becoming part of my list of favorite places to shoot. There is a lot of variety of backdrops- water, tall grass, rocks, and trees. The light is just so lovely! The only downside is that it is probably not the best location for toddlers since seeing the playground is inevitable and there are no railings near the water where I like to photograph. It was perfect for this maternity session!! These first time parents were super excited for their baby-to-be and I’ll be following them along with more pictures as baby grows. I just love that they included their pup in the photos. I cant wait to meet your new little bundle!

Indianapolis Family Photography During Spring with Wildflowers

This Spring has been something else – extra wet and extra cold. It was snowing just a few weeks before this session took place. Everything is blooming so much later this year. To have nice weather for this sessions was a real treat!! It so nice shooting outdoors with comfortable temps in Spring clothes. This session took place at sunrise which was great for these two adorable girls. They were extra happy and easy going during their family session.

Spring time brings Spring flowers. Photographing the family in a patch of purple wild flowers was a real treat! This was one of the first sessions of the year with wild flowers in bloom and I couldn’t have been more grateful. The sunlight was glowing and the kids were happy. Look at that beautiful sunrise over the water.

A Purple Sunset Indianapolis Maternity Photography

This session was rescheduled more times then I can count due to weather. It was at least 4 times, but could have been more. The weather just couldn’t decide what it wanted to do. On the day of this session the expecting mama was determined we were going to make it work this time as long as it wasn’t actively raining. Her due date was looming closer and closer. The weather wasn’t ideal. It was super overcast and looked like it could start raining at any moment. However, the rain never came and the sunset was stunning! We got a purple sunset that was like no other. I’m so glad these two moved forward with their maternity session on this overcast day.

Three little girls and one more on the way – Carmel, Indiana Maternity Photographer

I’ve been photographing this sweet family for years. In fact, I even photographed their wedding. It’s a joy to be able to watch this family grow year after year. They have three beautiful girls and one more on the way. I can’t wait to see what it will be – boy or girl. We did this lovely maternity session at sunset at a park in Carmel, Indiana. It was a perfect summer day with a lovely sunset. We danced, cuddled, and played the sun away.

Sunflower Mini Sessions – Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana

Sunflower family picturesAt long last, I’ve got more info on the much anticipated Sunflower Mini sessions!

These sessions will take place at Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana. The sunflower field on this farm is perfectly positioned for ideal lighting. These sessions are sure to be dreamy. You can dress them up with the ladies in a long flowing gown or dress them down in denim. I typically recommend earthy tones or soft pastels for clothing. Natural fabrics (cotton) look especally good with this natural environment. I don’t recommend bold patterns or bright colors for this setting.  Either way, with this setting, they will be stunning.

The dates below are the farm’s best guess as to when the sunflower fields will be blooming. There is only a two week window for the flowers. If they don’t bloom when expected we will have to move the dates around slightly. That being said, last year they hit the predicted dates exactly. So I’m hopeful these dates won’t have to move.

The details:

  • 20 minutes of shooting time
  • At least 15 digital files delivered via online gallery
  • Sorry, no pets can participate
  • Limit of 6 total people – no extended families
  • Located at Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana
  • Cost is $350 – $50 discount for past clients

Sunset Dates:

  • July 15
  • July 16
  • July 21
  • July 24

Everyone loved these sessions last year and they booked quickly. So if you are interested in doing these I would recommend booking sooner rather than later. You can book your session here.

These sunflower mini sessions should be a blast! However, if you are looking to do family pictures in another location I would be happy to talk though that with you as well. I’m an Indianapolis photographer serving all of central Indiana.

The Randall Family – Indianapolis Family Photographer

Sometimes I get labeled as a baby photographer. It’s true a lot of the families I shoot have toddles and babies in them. It’s also true that I’m really good with kids. However, the reason I shoot so many families with babies in them is because I meet a most of my family photography clients when they have their newborns and then they stick with me (which I love!) to capture their families year after year. This family however, has no toddlers and it’s just as fun! It wasn’t nearly as exhausting – if you have a toddler you know what I mean. These guys humored me with my jokes meant for toddlers. So yes – I’m great with kids. But I’m also great with pre-teens, teens, and adults. The older families may laugh at me instead of with me but I don’t care one bit!

These girls and their parents were a joy to work with. Just a beautiful family and a beautiful Indiana day for pictures!

Sunset Maternity Session – Indianapolis Maternity Photographer

Seeing this beautiful family is always so much fun! These guys were a hoot as usual and they had a perfect (maybe a tad hot – but no one complained) summer day for a maternity session. This sunset session was stunning, but it’s hard to take a bad picture of this expecting mama and her adorable family. I can’t wait to meet this sweet babe!

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.
