Family Session with Senior Daughter – Indianapolis Photographer

I often get asked if I only photograph families with little kids? The answer is no. Case in point… this lovely family. Their older daughter was a graduating senior. So mom wanted some senior pictures along with her family session. What a great keepsake for both the daughter and the whole family. The weather was lovely and I love the colors that they chose for the session. The light in the background is just stunning and just accentuates this beautiful family!

A Walk in the Park – Carmel Indiana Family Photography

I just love photographing in the fall and this family made for the best time! This was an early fall sunset session and I am so thankful that we have had a stunningly warm and dry fall this year. I am so thankful for this because that is not always the case! This family is super sweet! The session was a little crazy due to the kids ages but it was so FUN! Let’s also talk about their outfits- great choices and everyone looked so put together! We took the photos at Central Park in Carmel and I love this location because of the variety of the backdrops. The picture with the three siblings holding hands walking together is my favorite – if it was of my kids I would blow it up on a huge canvas in my home. Be sure to check it out- it is the last picture in this post!

Family of Six at Fort Harrison State Park – Indianapolis Family Photographer

I’ve adored photographing this beautiful family over the years. These 4 girls are always such a joy. The two oldest girls are twins. I also enjoy seeing their bond and I maybe have gotten a few extra pictures of the two sisters together because they were too sweet not to capture. My smile was as big as theirs while I was shooting them. They wanted a more rustic setting this year for pictures so they chose Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis. It’s lovely this times of year. While we were out shooting the the tall grass we even saw a little fawn. That’s a first for me while shooting – so fun!

Falling Leaves and a Family Session – Indiana Family Photography

Fall has got to be one of my most favorite times of year- there are so many wonderful things to do as a family. Even though we had to alter some of the things that we did, I am thankful that we are still able to spend so much time outside. And the backdrop for the photos- simply stunning!

This was an early Fall session right as the leaves were starting to change and the weather was still warm. It’s the perfect time to play outside with littles and that is what we did during this family session – we played!

We were able to get a lot of great shots during this session and the photos really capture the love that is clear and evident within this family!

Wild One – Outdoor 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

Before it got cold we were able to capture this sweet little guy’s 1st birthday outdoors. The session started with a quick outdoor family session followed by a pretty epic cake smash session. This cake smash session was themed The Wild One after the book series Where the Wild Things Are. I loved this book as a kid and I’m excited to see another generation of kids exposed to it as well. We had the perfect lighting and location for this rustic wild shoot and our little wild one year old rocked his cake smash session.

Holiday Park Engagement Session – Indianapolis Photographer

I don’t shoot many engagement sessions these days. I don’t shoot many weddings which means most people don’t hire me for engagement pictures. This adorable couple is from Indy, but they are getting married out of state. So they didn’t even care that I don’t shoot many weddings these days. They just liked my work so they hired me. And I’m so glad they did! They were the sweetest couple.

This session made me realize two things…

1 – I really do love shooting engagement sessions. They are much less crazy then shooting family sessions. Don’t get me wrong, I love the challenge of chasing two year old’s around, making poop jokes, and trying to relate to kids/teens/dads (no really, I DO love doing these things). However, it’s refreshing to shoot without all the crazy family dynamics going on. It’s a little more chill and relaxing and allows me to spend more time on the finer details.

2 – I need to shoot at Holiday Park more often! This location really is great and so I purchased a yearly pass to shoot here. If you want to have your family (or engagement) session done here I’m your girl! I’m kind of obsessed with this place!

Twin Baby Bump – Indianapolis Maternity and Newborn Photography

I want to start this post off by saying – wow. Everything about this maternity session just blew me away… this sweet couple, the beautiful light, the fact that this mama is pregnant with twins and makes it look so easy and beautiful, and just wow.

This session took place in late Fall in Indiana. It was could – I was bundled up head to toe.  These two had to be freezing but they didn’t let the chilly weather stop them from enjoying this beautiful time in their lives. They were glowing both on the inside and out with joy and excitement for the arrival of their beautiful baby girls. It was hard not to photograph these two without a big smile on my face… their joy was contagious!

The light during this session was simply stunning. I can never guarantee light like this, but when it happens I just want to keep shooting. So that is what I did. Sorry (but not really) there are a lot of maternity pictures here. But, I love them all so I wanted to share. Believe it or not, their gallery includes even more amazing images that I didn’t share here.

The Jensen Family – Indianapolis Family Photography

This fantastic family was adorably fun to photograph because they enjoy being together and just wanted to play and have a ton of fun!  The kids are at fun ages- 10, 8, and 4!  A session like this really makes my heart happy!  While there are so many wonderful pictures in this post, one of my favorites is the two boys with their little sister with a sunbeam in it- so beautiful!

The Gallen Family – Indianapolis Family Photographer

This family session is one for the books!  What a beautiful way to capture the love that this couple has shared and especially with their three little kiddos.  Here is what was important to mom and I think we achieved this…
“Capturing all 5 of us together as I/mom rarely make it into photos because I’m usually taking them. Also getting a good shot of each child. Maybe getting a picture of just my husband and I as we are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary.”
I’d say that we definitely made all of her dreams for this photo shoot come true!
