Baby Girl Nyomi – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Meet Nyomi. This sweet little baby girl is the perfect addition to their family. Just the week before this newborn session, I photographed “big” sister’s cake smash session. These two are almost exactly a year apart. They are a beautiful family and Nyomi definitely has an amazing head of hair.

Baby Boy – In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Photography in Indianapolis

It has been awhile since I had been inside a lot of other homes besides my own. I was so excited to meet this new little baby boy and take some photos in their home to capture this beautiful time! They have the most adorable boho decorated home- seriously so cute! Their plant collection is just amazing and I was glad to be able incorporate that into some pictures. Both of their fur babies made appearances in the pictures with my favorite being the cat photobomb at the end. They are just the sweetest people ever and I am so happy that I got to spend time with them, visit their home, and snap some photos of their sweet little man!

Baby Rhett – Zionsville, IN Newborn Photographer

Little Rhett joined the family in early January and I was so glad to have them in the studio for his newborn session. This sweet family is one that I have enjoyed photographing over the years. It is wonderful to have clients that I can keep in touch with and take more pictures of as their family grows. Older siblings, Kayley and Zeke are obviously so in love with their little brother and the pictures definitely captured that love! This family is all around amazing and I can’t wait to watch this little babe grow over the next year!

One More Makes 6 – Outdoor Indianapolis Newborn Photography

I adore this family. They have allowed me to capture their family since towards the beginning of my career as a photographer. They had me photograph their oldest son before I even had a studio and I brought a huge car load of stuff into their home, rearranged furniture, and photographed their oldest as a tiny nugget. It was an honor to be able to capture their 4th (and maybe last) little one. We had a perfect sunrise morning and a very happy baby. All three big brothers were in love with their new baby sister and it was so sweet to watch!

I also adore outdoor newborn sessions. So everything about this session made my heart happy. I can’t wait to photograph even more outdoor newborn sessions this summer. If you are expecting a summer baby please reach out and let me know!

Sweet Robert – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

Sweet Robbie joins big brother Steven with adding another boy to the house! Robbie was a little older for his session- about 5 weeks old and he was a champ! Robbie and Steven were both adorable and cooperative. Steven did not mind being in front of the camera but we made it work!  Mom killed it on the outfits – everything looked so good and I especially loved her dress! I am so glad that I had the honor of capturing the newborn photos for this beautiful family.

2020 Highlights from KristeenMarie Photography

I’m sure everyone can relate… what a nutty year. I didn’t see this coming and I’m sure you didn’t either. I’m not going to lie. It was hard. Very hard. In April and May I had to completely stop shooting and then after that I only did outdoor sessions for a few months. We didn’t have childcare and I became a full time stay at home mom who wasn’t able to leave the house. It was HARD on so many levels. I didn’t know when I would be able to work again (and I so desperately wanted to). I didn’t know what our childcare situation would look like if I was able to go back to work (we just weren’t okay with sending our kids back to daycare). Basically my personal and professional world was rocked!

But you know what?! We figured things out as a family and I made some changes to the business and it ended up being a great year. We figured out our new normal and I think we are better off for it!

Here are some of my highlights as an Indianapolis photographer from 2020! These are in no particular order.

1. 1st time in the sunflower fields

This summer I had the opportunity to photograph two days in the sunflower fields and it was magical! You better believe I’ll be doing it again this year. I can’t wait!! The dates for these sessions depends on when the field is blooming. So I can’t open up booking until the farm knows when the flowers will likely bloom. If you are interested in these sessions be sure you are on my email list because I’m sure they will book up super fast this year!!

2. 75 beautiful families

One of the biggest joys of my job is being able to watch and document families grow year after year. The fact that so many of my clients come back every year for pictures with me means so much! Being an Indianapolis family photographer is the best and I adore each and everyone of these families!

3. One magical proposal

Being able to document a proposal is nerve wracking every single time. But I enjoy the rush and appreciate the opportunity to be able to capture such a big milestone. This gorgeous couple did not disappoint when it came to this downtown Indianapolis proposal.

4. Behind the scenes video and photography

Before COVID hit and having an extra person in the studio or not wearing a mask was something we even though about I had two local photographers come and take some video/photos of me in the studio. It’s always weird being on the other side of the camera but I’m so grateful for both these ladies and their lovely work. Shaindel Kramer and Kelli White – you guys are the best!!

5. Outdoor newborn session

You guys showed up big time this year for the outdoor newborn sessions and I’m obsessed! In a normal year I typically get one or two families who are willing to brave an outdoor newborn session with me. But when COVID hit and the only option was to do them outdoor you all did them and they where phenomenal! If you or someone you know is expecting a summer baby, let’s do their newborn session outdoors! These images are stunning. Did you know if you do an in-studio newborn session you can add a mini newborn outdoor session to your package? It’s the best of both worlds!

6. 62 studio newborn photography session

Studio newborn sessions are what I’m most known for and they are probably my favorite sessions to shoot. I love getting in my newborn cuddles! To have this many people trust me with their brand new babies means the word to me. I hope to see even more in 2021! Thank you for all for allowing me to be your Indianapolis newborn photographer.

7. Seven maternity sessions

I adore pregnancy (well I personally don’t love being pregnant, but other people being pregnant is the best!) and I think pregnant women are in one of their most beautiful states. I cherish being able to capture this times in the lives of these families. If you are even on the fence about doing a maternity session please reach out to me and let me know. You won’t regret it! And a huge thank you to all these families for allowing me to be their Indianapolis maternity photographer!

8. A gender reveal photography session

This was a 1st for me and I loved it! This couple couldn’t have the gender reveal party they had hoped for due to COVID. They still wanted to celebrate so they did a gender reveal photo shoot with a smoke bomb. I’m going to add gender reveal/birth announcement shoot to my packages for 2021. So keep an eye out for that!

9. Two Fresh 48 sessions

This one makes me a little sad. Remember, when I could go to the hospital and photograph births and Fresh 48 sessions. Ya – I don’t get to do that anymore. I get it, but it still makes me sad. Before COVID kicked me out of the hospitals, I was able to get in one Fresh 48 session at an Indianapolis hospital. Then I had one mom who booked a Fresh 48 session and still wanted to do it at her home. She still wanted those photos of her kids meeting for the first time. I was totally game and it was a great solution! I hope one day things will go back to normal, but until then enjoy this last in-hospital Fresh 48 session.

9. Two weddings and 3 engagement sessions

It’s no surprise, I don’t shoot many weddings these days. Which means I don’t shoot many engagement sessions. But each one I do shoot has a special place in my heart.

10. Bring on the cake!

In 2020 I shot 29 cake smash sessions. That’s a lot of cake!! Each session was unique and each baby was beautiful and full of personality. I love coming up with these custom sets and I hope to do even more cake smash sessions next year. Bring me all those babies!!

11. My baby’s cake smash session

Speaking of cake, my little lady gets her own highlight. I adore taking pictures of my kids each year on their birthday and this one was extra special because she was one. Brynn cake smash session was inspired by her nursery and I adore it!

12. Jack’s 4th birthday shoot

I can’t share Brynn’s pictures and not share Jack’s! Jack celebrated his 4th birthday in style with his balloon session. This was also my only shoot in the month of April!

13. One in-home lifestyle newborn session – I only did one in-home lifestyle newborn session this year, but it was for one of my favorite couples so I’m not complaining one bit!

14. 23 milestone sessions

I love all of my grow-with-me package clients! Seeing all these babies every few months is such a joy.

sitter session poses - lots of sessions

What a fun and crazy year! I’m not going to lie, I don’t want to repeat 2020. However, I think I made the best of it and I look forward to seeing all of you (and hopefully some new ones too) amazing clients again next year. Thank you for allowing me to be your photographer and document the lives of your family!!

A Cute Little Redhead – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

This sweet little bundle of joy is just as cute as can be. He is a cute little redhead who did not want to sleep when we were staring his session. Once he fell asleep, he was a doll and got lots of pictures. He was definitely just as cute awake as he was asleep! He just looks so cozy in all of his photos! I was excited to meet him as I also got to take maternity photos of his parents before he made his arrival! Be sure to check out their maternity session as well!

Baby Girl Palmer – Fishers Newborn Photographer

I’ve been photographing this family since big brother, Preston, was born over 4 years ago. It’s been a joy to watch him grow from a tiny newborn to adorable fun loving 4-year-old. So when this family told me they were expecting again I was thrilled! I’m thrilled that I get to watch Preston turn into a big brother (which he is crushing!) and thrilled to get to watch this beautiful little lady grow over the coming years!

Sweet little Palmer is a great addition to the family and I just know that she will love her big brother as much as he loves her!

Pretty in Pink – Indianapolis Outdoor Newborn Photography

When babies are past the two week mark, it gets a little tricky to do the posed sleeping newborn sessions in the studio. It’s not impossible, but it’s hit or miss if baby will fully cooperate or not. So when clients come to me with older newborns (like this session) I encourage them to do outdoor newborn sessions because it doesn’t matter if baby sleeps or not. And let me tell you – these sessions are stunning, as you can probably tell from the pictures. These clients were all in when it came to the outfits and I loved every bit of it! These guys are long time clients and it was so great seeing them again and catching up!!

It doesn’t matter if you are looking for outdoor newborn photography in Indianapolis or an studio newborn session don’t hesitate to reach out! I want to photograph your baby in the setting that makes the most sense for you.

Handsome Newborn Boy – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Meet Luke.  This adorable, bright eyed cutie recently came to the studio with his parents for his newborn session and he is just the sweetest little baby. Luke fought sleep for his session, but we were lucky because we were able to get some great awake images with those big eyes and great eye contact.  Once he fell asleep, he was golden. He is a stunning little man with very loving parents.
