Celebrating Rosh Hashanah with Apple and Honey – Indianapolis Family Photography

This year, from sundown on September 29 until sundown on October 1, people of the Jewish faith will celebrate Rosh Hashanah, which is a celebration of a new year.  They celebrate in many ways, and with many customary dishes, but one of those ways is to eat sweet things like apples and honey to symbolize a sweet new year.  For these clients, whom I have known since their baby was born, they wanted their family shoot to incorporate this holiday and special time.

 

The day of the shoot was just perfect.  It was bright and sunny and an 85 degree day despite it being mid September.  We definitely were able to get lots and lots of playing and action shots and their pup even joined them for this beautiful shoot.  This sweet furry friend has been in all of the family pictures, including baby’s newborn session!  I just LOVE when I get to continuously work with clients and watch the families grow and the little ones grow up over the years- it is one of the best parts of my job! I also love learning about these families and their traditions. I knew nothing about Rosh Hahanah before this session.

Happy Rosh Hashanah to this wonderful family!

If you are looking for a family photographer in Indianapolis , someone to capture the traditions and special moments of your family, be sure to send me a message.  I would love to meet your family and learn more about the traditions and customs that you celebrate!

Maternity Photography in Downtown Carmel, Indiana + In-Home Maternity Pictures

This was a fun maternity session in Carmel, Indiana. This couple lives just minutes from downtown Carmel.  We started their session in their home (see the last few pictures) and then hopped in the car for a very short drive to downtown Carmel. It was the perfect backdrop for these two (and a half). It was elegant too with lots of pops of red that really went with mom-to-be’s lovely red dress. The day was overcast but it was perfect for picture taking in this urban setting. We couldn’t go to downtown Carmel and not take pictures in front of the Palladium and the new Cake Bake Shop! I can’t wait to meet this cute little baby.

The Poe Kids – Indianapolis Family Photography

This beautiful family was so joyful to photograph!  Mom wanted just some photos of the kids, so that’s what we did!  The kids are all stunning and very photogenic.  Each of the kids had their own unique personalities yet they were all extremely well behaved and great listeners.  What a family!  The oldest is 12, followed by a 10 year old, 7 year old, 4 year old, and 13 months!  We had so much fun taking these pictures and the weather was very cooperative!

Little Berkeley’s Sitter Session – Carmel Indiana Photography Studio

Little Berkeley is growing up!  I’ve been photographing this girl since birth.  For this shoot, she made us work for those smiles but everyone had a good laugh in the process. I’m pretty sure mom and I both got a good workout making it all happen- but the photos turned out fantastic, so it was well worth it!

Rigler Family – Carmel, Indiana Family Photography

Baby it’s cold outside today!! These cold temps make me excited for shooting this summer when it’s warm and toasty. This family enjoyed the sunny warm weather for their early Fall session last year.

Meet the Rigler’s!  They are an adorable little family who had a perfect sky for their family session!  There was not a cloud around, and for it being sunset, there sure was a lot of sun and light!  I love the coordinating outfits and the big smiles on all of their faces.  I know that they will treasure these photos for a lifetime!

This beautiful family was photographed at their absolutely stunning home in Carmel, Indiana.  The session was a little more posed than my typical session, but that is exactly what the client wanted and I absolutely LOVE how they turned out.  This family is incredibly photogenic and I just love their sense of style.  These pictures definitely show all of the love and warmth that they have for each other.

Deitchman Maternity Session – Carmel Maternity Photography

Is this family adorable or what?! Big-brother-to-be reminds me so much of my little guy. They are both the same age, have a happy demeanor, and they both have those amazing long and dark eyelashes. It doesn’t get any better then that!  Everyone in the family is so photogenic, so it was a joy to be able to capture this special time as they are awaiting another addition to their family!

This session was super fun and easy going! It was on one of our crazy hot days we have been having but the light was lovely and the clients as happy as could be. It’s clear this whole family is excited to meet their new bundle of joy! And I can’t wait to have the little one in the studio in a few weeks!

Recap of Greenhouse Sessions – Indianapolis Greenhouse Photography

A little while back, I did one round of Spring mini sessions in a local greenhouse in Indianapolis. All I have to say is that I’m obsessed with this location!! Obsessed!!!

If you have scheduled a family session with me you know that I’m very persistent about scheduling at sunrise or an hour before sunset. The reason I do this is because that is when the light is oh so lovely for pictures. One of the beautiful things about the greenhouse is that you don’t have to schedule your session around the sun since the greenhouse filters the light oh-so-nicely on it’s own. So your nap schedules can determine the session start time and not the sunset time. Not only does the greenhouse give you some freedom in scheduling but it’s also just beautiful! I mean look at this place!!! I can’t wait to shoot here more.

New Styling Service Included In All Sessions

styling service included in every photography session - Indianapolis photographerHey guys – I have some exciting news!! Now with every session you book it will also include a free styling service. I’m so excited to include this for my sessions. You are going to love this new tool. It completely takes the headache out of picking outfits for your sessions. Here is how it works…

After you book your session I’ll send you a link to the tool along with your access code – that will allow you to use the tool for free! Once logged in you then answer a few questions. These questions include things like how many people are in your family and what size do they wear, what type of look are you going for (traditional, formal, Boho, Hipster, etc), and what type of color scheme you are going for.

You answer these few questions and then you will be given lots of clothing options for each person. Something nice about the options is that there isn’t an overwhelming number of choices and there are so many good options at affordable prices!! All the options will take you to links for each product. You can just click the item or items that you want and it brings you right to the shop so you can look at it further if you would like!

You then select an option for each person in the family and then it will show you all your results. You can then email the results (to me or yourself) and purchase the items.

Family outfits

It’s that easy! I hope you love and utilize this new tool to help make your life easier when shopping for outfits for your next shoot. The tool can be used for all sessions – family, newborn (no need to get an outfit for baby but you can find cute outfits for mom, dad and sibling(s)), milestone, or whatever!

The tool is constantly being updated with new clothing and it’s season specific (so it’s probably too early to start shopping for your Fall session now). So if you don’t find the perfect outfit today check back in a week and you might find the perfect ensemble. If you have a session booked with me and have not received info about this, let me know and I’ll send it your way. If we don’t have a date on the calendar for an Indianapolis family photography session yet, let me know that as well and we can get something on the books. If you have any questions along the way don’t hesitate to reach out. I would love to help you look your best and feel comfortable on the day of your session.
