Flirty and Fun Maternity Session – Indianapolis Photographer

This beautiful couple is expecting their baby in November and we just had to get a maternity session of this glowing mamma as well!  Both mom and dad had classy outfits and in some photos, mom wore a fun and flirty full length dress – I loved the long red dress!  All in all they were an adorable couple and very excited about the upcoming arrival of their little one! Just a few more weeks until I also get to meet their bundle of joy in the studio for the newborn session!

Indianapolis Creek Side Maternity Photography Session

This beautiful creek side maternity session was with some long time clients.  I got to capture this couple on their wedding day, I have photographed both kiddos and I cannot want to meet the new one!  The girls absolutely loved playing in the creek at the end of the session.  It was also so special because mom and dad got a number of pictures by themselves with the baby bump.  All together, it was a wonderful day- then again, when I get to see this family- it is always a wonderful day!

McMahon Family – Indianapolis Family Photographer

This stunning family are the McMahon’s and they wanted to capture their Indiana backdrop one last time before they all go their separate ways.  Dad was a coach for the Colts and is now gathering up the family and moving to Denver for a new coaching job.  Two of the older kids are in college in Indiana, so they get to spent some more time here in the beautiful state of IN!  It is not common that I get the chance to photograph families with older children but I definitely enjoyed it!   They were a really fun family to be around and as you can tell by the photos, they are all very natural in front of the camera!  We even got to do a little creek stomping too!

creek side pictures in Carmel, IN

You guys asked to see these again so here they are! I’m so excited to do these sessions again because they were so much fun last year!! The creek side mini sessions will take place in Carmel Indiana. An exact meeting location will be sent closer to the date of the session. These session are great for your active kiddos who just want to have fun! I recommend families with kids that can sit up well on their own (8+ months old). We will get a picture of everyone looking and smiling at the camera but the majority of the session will be playing and having fun. Last year most of the kids didn’t want to leave the creek when we were done with the session and I don’t blame them. It’s so much fun to play in the water! This session can be for the whole family (no extended families please), for mom and kids, or just the kids. You can even bring the fur babies too, if you would like.

Session includes:

  • 20 minutes of shooting time
  • Session will take place in Carmel, IN
  • At least 15 digital files delivered via online gallery
  • Pets are invited to participate in the session
  • Immediate family only
  • This is not a great session for families with children under 8 months old
  • Cost is $275 – $50 discount for past clients

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!

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.

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.
