Creek Side Mini Sessions – Summer 2017

So last week my old college roommate and I took our boys to visit a local creek and let the boys play. Since we are both photographers we decided to take pictures too. It was so much fun and I’m obsessed with how the pictures turned out! The light was beautiful and the boys had fun. So I wanted to offer this up to you guys as mini sessions.

These images are super casual. You will want to come prepared to get wet and play in the rocks, sand and water! We might get a few pictures of everyone looking at the camera but the goal of the session is to capture everyone playing and interacting at this beautiful location!

The cost for the session is $200 ($100 non-refundable deposit due to book and remaining balance due the day of your session) and includes 20 minutes of shooting and at least 15 images. Your images will be delivered via online gallery where you can download all the images. The location is in Carmel. Exact meeting details will be sent a few weeks before your session.

Here are a few things to note about these sessions:

  • Session is limited to immediate families only. You will need to book a full session if you would like to do an extended family session.
  • This session is best for families with children 7 months (at least sitting well on their own) or older.

I’m only going to open up two days (one at sunrise and one at sunset) for these mini sessions. However, if you would like to book on a different day you can also do a full session at this location!

Session Dates:

July 15th – Sunrise Sessions

Emily is One – Carmel Child & Family Photography

I’ve just loved watching this sweet family grow over the last year!! Little Emily has grown so much. This session was a great way to wrap up her first year. We did an outdoor family session and topped the session off with some birthday cake! Emily’s outdoor birthday cake smash was too perfect. Enjoy…

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!

Outdoor Newborn Photography in Indianapolis

Meet Wes. I first photographed this little guy when he was in his mom’s tummy. We did his maternity session at this same location. ¬†While the maternity session was pretty fantastic but I’m even more excited about this outdoor newborn session.

 A month's progression - pregnancy to newborn

There are only a few months in Indiana when you can do an outdoor newborn session. We had perfect weather for this session and a great little sunset.

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.

A Family of Five – Carmel, IN Family Photography

Meet the Henry family! These 5 were full of personality and I loved it!

For their session the weather was not ideal. It was cold and there were a few rain drops that fell. The inclimate weather didn’t phase this family one bit.

Lucy is 6 months old – Indianapolis Child Photography

Sweet little Lucy is already 6 months old. It seems like just yesterday I was photographing her as a newborn.

Lucy’s brother, Jack is three. While 3 years and 6 months may seem like difficult ages to photograph these two were champs during their session!

Meet the Switzer family. These guys moved to Indy around the time that little Evan was born.

Evan just celebrated his first birthday a couple days ago. So it was perfect timing for the session.

They also helped me find this fun new location which included streams and lots of lush greenery. The best part is that it is right here in Carmel, IN. I can’t wait to go back.
