Outdoor Fall Family Session – Carmel, IN Family Photographer

Fall makes my job so much easier and even more fun. I just love the Fall colors as a backdrop and this park was perfect to capture all those pretty Fall colors.

Waiting for Baby – Carmel Indiana Pregnancy Photography

This sweet couple had their baby very soon after their maternity session. So soon that I didn’t have a chance to get their pictures to them before the baby arrived! But better late than never. From what I hear baby and mom are doing well and I’m exited to have them in the studio for their newborn session this week. I hope you enjoy their maternity photography session!

A Growing Family – Indianapolis Maternity Photographer


It’s been a long and cold winter here in Indianapolis. It feels like it has been forever since I’ve been able to head outside and shoot. This session makes my heart so happy. I was able to get out and photograph this stunning expecting mom and her lovely family. It was a little cold, but the whole family did great and the snow sure does make for a great backdrop!

The Carson Family – Carmel Indiana Family Photography


Meet the Carson family. These guys were too much fun. Each of these family members had lots of their own unique personality and I just love that!

While I was editing this session I broke into laughter more then once. My husband kept asking me what was so funny. Little Lane (the little guy in the family) was just full of all kinds of crazy faces and emotion. I couldn’t help from laughing while flipping though the images. I hope you enjoy these guys as much as I did.

Payton is 18 Months Old – Coxhall Gardens Family Photography Session in Carmel

I’ve been photographing Payton since she was born 18 months ago. I love making beautiful images for families. However sessions like these remind me about how much I love watching families grow and building relationships with people. I’ve so much enjoyed watching this little lady grow. I can’t get enough of her – She is just too cute.

Expecting Parents in a field at Sunset – Indianapolis Pregnancy Photography

This session started off with a rough start. We planned to go to Flowing Wells park in Carmel which is one of my favorite locations. However when we arrived we found out that the park was closed due to E. coli (yikes!).

So I was Googling around quickly to find a park near by. That is how I stumbled upon this location. This park is actually part of a Frisbee park . It’s another beautiful location that I can add to my bag of tricks. I’m so glad we found it!

Outdoor Maternity Session in Indianapolis, IN

I’ve been having so much fun with maternity sessions lately! I used to treat maternity sessions like I do engagement sessions.  There would be lots of interacting between mom and dad. But what I’m learning is that it’s so much more then that! It’s really about the interactions with the baby-to-be. I’ve been taking lots more pictures of just mom and baby and the two of them interacting.

We started this session in traditional street clothes and then transitioned into one of my maternity gowns. Both setups were beautiful. It also helps that we had a stunning mother-to-be and a great Indianapolis location.

Circus Themed First Birthday Party – Carmel Indiana Party Photography

I’ve been photographing little Lydia since her birth. So it’s only fitting that I photographed her 1st birthday party.

This Circus themed 1st birthday party had everything that you would expect to see a circus.

Below is the Ring Master (the birthday girl’s dad) welcoming you to the Big Top.


This circus birthday cake couldn’t have been cuter.

KristeenMarie Photography Studio Tour – Carmel & Westfield, Indiana Newborn Photography Studio

UPDATE: My studio has moved (don’t worry – not far). I’m now located in Carmel, Indiana. You can see more pictures of the new studio here.

So if you follow me on Facebook you know that I now have a studio (EEeek!). To say I’m excited would be an understatement. Having a studio has always been a dream of mine and it has finally happened!

 The studio has actually been up and running for over two months now and I’ve had a number of sessions in it. I’ve finally taken a few minutes to take a few pictures of it to share with you.

My studio is located in the Carmel/Westfield area. It’s an in-home studio. The studio has a private entrance so no matter how messy my home is my clients have no idea. 🙂

It’s not huge, but it’s prefect for me. It’s PERFECT for newborns and all my first year grow with me milestone sessions (including cake smash sessions). It’s also great for maternity sessions when it’s too cold to do them outside. If you have done a newborn session with me before I had a studio you know that I would lug all of my stuff (giant beanbag, lights, buckets/props, heater, backdrops, and so much more) to your home. Having the studio makes things so much easier for both myself and my clients (having a photographer come to your home sounds like a good idea, but unless it’s a lifestyle session it’s really much more complicated than it sounds).

Anyways… here is the shooting room. I’ve got beautiful natural light during the day and studio light for the evening sessions.

Westfield, Indiana Photography Studio

The above pictures I took before I had these beautiful wood backdrops installed in the studio. They are reversible – cream and brown. I’m pretty much in love with them.

I’ve also got lots of storage which is good because I’ve got lots of props and backdrops!

The Prop Closet - Studio

There is a restroom attached to the shooting space as well.

No newborn photography studio would be complete without lots of hair pretties. And this is only a fraction of them. baby hair pretties

Sitting space and canvas prints. While the studio space is great for the little kiddos, it’s also a great place to meet with my future brides-to-be.

And last but not least, here are a few pictures of me working in the studio.

Can you tell I’m in my happy place when I’m working with the little ones?

I’m in love with this space. I hope you will be too.

The new studio is conveniently located on the north side of Indianapolis in the Carleml/Westfield area.
So if you are looking for a Westfield Indiana Photographer just let me know. I would love to introduce you to my new studio.
