15 Highlights in 2017 from KristeenMarie Photography – Indianapolis Photographer

I want to start this post off by saying THANK YOU to each and every one of my clients. This has been a great year for me both personally and professionally. I am no longer suffering from lack of sleep from having a newborn in the house and I feel like while I grow as a photographer during every session I finally have a sense of confidence that each session will be different and better then the last. I adore being able to capture this time in your lives. I appreciate that you trust in me to do this for you! Please know that I adore watching your family grow and I hope to continue to work with you and your family for many years to come. This year include 229 sessions (whoa!) and each and every one was special to me! Thank you – thank you – thank you!

15. Many Milestone Memories – 32 Studio Milestone Sessions

One thing that I adore about my job is getting to meet new clients and then being able to watch those children and families grow. Most of these milestone sessions below started in my studio as a newborn client. I just love watching little babies grow into toddles and then families growing from one to two + kiddos. So much fun! If you are looking for a child photographer in Indianapolis just let me know. I would love to have your little on in the studio!

14. Big Beautiful Baby Bumps – 13 Bumps Captured

One of the most beautiful things about having a baby is being pregnant. I think being pregnant is stunning on every woman and I just adore capturing this time in the lives of parents.

13. Big Brothers Big Sisters of Central Indiana

Big Brothers Big Sisters has played a huge role in my life and I believe I’ve had an impact on my ‘little sister’ too. For those of you who don’t know, I’ve volunteered with BBBS for the last 8 years. I’ve been matched with the same little sister the whole time. Well this year was an INCREDIBLE year for me because my little sister graduated from high school and started college!!! These is a huge feat for her and I couldn’t be prouder!!! This year, BBBS also asked me to do a shoot for them to use for promotional material. I was honored to be able to do this for them! If you are looking to give back in 2018 (and beyond) you should seriously check out BBBS program in Indianapolis. It’s an incredible organization making a difference in the lives of so many children.

12. I started offering video.

I’ve dabbled in videos for a few years now. However, this year I finally took the leap and started offering it as a product. Can I tell you how much I love these videos?! They tell a story even more than pictures alone. Right now I offer video as an add-on for birth, Fresh 48, and cake smash sessions. I really could write a whole blog post about these videos (if only there were more hours in the day!). For now, you can check out some of the videos below:

11. Families – 49 Family Sessions
I know I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. One thing that I cherish about my job is getting to build relationships with families and being able to photograph them year after year. Most of these families that I’ve photographed in the last year have been clients of mine in the past. Some of them have been clients for 6+ years! I love new clients too, but I hope to turn them into forever clients. I love watching families grown from one kiddo to 3+ kiddos. I love watching your children grow from tiny babies to beautiful school aged beauties. Thank you for allowing me to capture your growing and changing families! Let me know if you are looking for an Indianapolis family photographer!

10. Messy Munchkins – 28 Cake Smash Session

There is no better way to celebrate a 1st birthday then with a cake smash session! I love creating these custom sets for each baby that comes to the studio. There were so many fun themes this year… we had everything from Cookie Monster to Christmas Elves and everything in between.

9. My Messy Munchkin

 I feel this one deserves a call-out of it’s own because MY little munchkin turned one! I had a lot of fun with his cake smash session to match his nursery theme. You can see the whole session here. The behind the scenes video for this session (at the end of the post) is comical. Only the photographer’s kid would make me work this hard.

8. My Moments – Taking out the Big Camera
Every year, I say I’m going to be better about photographing my own family. Well, I’m not going to say there is any lack of pictures of my little guy and my family. But most of them are not using the big camera. However, I did take it out a few times this year and I love all the images. Here is to next year… to taking the camera out to photograph my family even more.

7. Happy New Year! – Jack and Ada
Alright – I promise, this is the last personal note. But I can’t help but share these pictures. On New Year’s Eve I did a shoot with my son Jack and his bestie Ada who was sleeping over. These two had SO much fun playing in the studio with the balloons. When they had been in there for over a half hour and we said all done my son lost it and did not want to stop. I think the pictures from the session are priceless. I may have to do this same thing for clients next year at New Years.

6. Once in a Lifetime Shots – 5 Proposals Captured
My heart still races each time I get to capture a proposal for a lucky lady out there! Not every guy goes above and beyond to hire a professional photographer for this big event, but the ones that do are extra special in my book! Guys take note… if you are going to propose give me a call as I would love to be your Indianapolis proposal photographer!

5. First comes love then come MARRIAGE

 In this season of my life I’ve found that I needed to significantly cut back on the number of weddings that I shoot each year. This year I held my ground, and only shot 6 wedding and it was AMAZING! I feel like the weddings that I did shoot were a good fit for me and I was able to spend the time needed to give each couple the dedicated, personalized time they deserved from a wedding photographer. It was a great wedding season and I can’t wait until next year. So let me know if you need an Indianapolis wedding photographer. I’m still only taking on a very limited number of weddings in 2018. I want to make sure that every couple I work with is a good fit (both ways) and that I can give them the time they need and deserve!

 4. Add-On Sessions – 4 Sessions
A lot of clients don’t know that they can add-on to their newborn sessions. If you book a full in-studio newborn session with me you can add-on an in-home lifestyle session or an outdoor newborn session (only in the summer months). These sessions always make my heart happy and keep my creativity flowing! I’m changing my pricing around in 2018 to make these add-on sessions even more affordable too. I hope to see even more clients utilize them next year!

 3. Fresh 48 Sessions – 8 Fresh Babes Photographed
I know birth photography isn’t for everyone. But those who want to capture those moments in the hospital but aren’t conformable with a photographer being there for the birth, choose to do a Fresh 48 session. These sessions are almost as magical as birth sessions! They are also super fun when older siblings get to meet their baby sibling for the first time.

2. Birth Photography – 6 Beautiful Babies
It’s no secret that I LOVE photographing births. If you talk to me about births in person you know how passionate I am about it. You know that I don’t mind one bit putting my life on hold so that I can see a new little baby take it’s first breath. I’ll re-arrange my travel schedule and child care schedule and my whatever to be there for a client’s big entry into the world. I know birth photography isn’t for everyone, but for those who choose to capture this time it leads to some incredible images! There is so much love and emotion in that delivery room to capture. This year I had the joy of capturing 6 beautiful babies enter into this world. Being an Indianapolis birth photographer is one of the biggest joys of my job!

1. Newborn Studio Sessions – 60 Newborn Sessions

 

Cuddling, posing, and loving on newborn babies brings me so much joy! I treasure each and every one of these tiny little clients! I feel honored that so many people allow me to capture this time in their little one’s life.

I can’t say it enough… Thank you to all my clients for making this another great year. I love capturing your families. Being an Indianapolis photographer is a great joy!

Baby Lilly – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

Meet sweet baby Lilly. I had the joy of photographing this sweet girl’s sister soon after she was born about 18 months ago. So it was a joy to meet little sister too! This little lady was a doll. She didn’t like being naked but she sure did rock out the wrapped baby shots.  I love watching families grow and this family is definitely blessed with two adorably precious little girls!Indianapolis newborn photography by KristeenMarie - newborn in white on pink sleeping newborn baby girl - pink and whiteIndianapolis family with newborn baby  parents and baby mom and newborn baby - Indianapolis newborn photography Indianapolis newborn photographer awake newborn baby newborn baby in white - white newborn pictures - sleeping little girl - classic images purple and flowers newborn picturesmuted tones newborn photography - sibling pictures with newborn baby and 2 year old

Cooper: A Handsome Little Man – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

You may remember this handsome little  guy from his Fresh 48 session I recently published. Cooper was also in the studio for his newborn session at just over a week old. He was a perfect little chunk! I just loved his sweet baby rolls and flawless skin! Oh and he had a great head of hair too!

Twin Boys Elijah & Ezekiel – Multiples Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

These twin boys were 10 days old for their newborn photography session. I know it’s a chore getting out of the house with a newborn. So I assume it’s even more of a chore with two newborns – right? Well, not for this super mom! She was at the studio a half hour before her session started and everyone was ready and excited for pictures. This boys slept like a dream for their newborn sessions and their big sisters were such good helpers!

A Newborn Session Just For Me – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

You may remember a few weeks back I did a newborn model call. I basically offered a free newborn session in exchange for me to be able to take pictures of a little one at my discretion. Well I had a big response and I found the perfect little guy for the job! This handsome baby boy had a full head of hair and cheeks to die for.

Since I could do whatever with this little peanut I decided to take picture of him with some succulents. I’m a big fan of succulents. These are actually plants from around my home. I’ve done newborns with flowers before but I’ve never had the chance to photograph a little one with my fun plants! I just love how these turned out!

I also photographed the little guy on white. I just love the simplicity of newborns on white. I think it’s very classic and timeless. I was also testing out some new studio lighting while this little guy was in the studio. I’m in love with the new lighting and if you come visit the studio you will be likely to see it.

Baby Cooper – Indianapolis Photography Fresh 48 Session at Community Hospital North

Meet newborn Cooper. He was born at Community Hospital North which is where his Fresh 48 session took place. This handsome little guy happens to belong to a good friend of mine. It’s always fun and exciting to capture little ones that will grow up in front of my eyes. This lovely family couldn’t have been more excited to welcome little Cooper into the world and big sister did such a great job with her new brother. I can’t wait to watch their relationship grow and change in the coming years. Be sure to check out the video of this family at the bottom of the post! You won’t want to miss the adorable antics of big sister.

The Blosh-Myers Family – In-Home Lifestyle Newborn Session

You may remember this lovely family from their in-studio newborn session not to long ago. They also opted to do also an in-home lifestyle newborn session. I’m so glad they did! They had the cutest home and the little guy’s nursery was just adorable. It was clear that lots of time and effort was taken to make it just perfect for him!

Handsome Little George – Carmel Newborn Photography

This handsome little fella was such a trooper for his newborn photo shoot!  Precious little 7.85 pound little George and his fantastic parents were a joy to photograph!  You may be saying to yourself: Another stunning family! Seriously? How do these women look so good just days after giving birth!?  For this shoot, mom wanted lots of white and neutral colors for her newborn sessions. She is a mom after my own heart, as I love all the neutral colors. Babies really pop on white backgrounds. This sweet little man also had the cutest little circle cowlick!  Check out the photos below!

Baby Henry – Indianapolis Newborn Photographer

All newborn sessions are special. But when the baby belongs to one of your good friends then it is extra special! Meet baby Henry. This little man was a tiny peanut. He was born 3 weeks early (but healthy) and weighed 6lbs. He was as prefect as could be. I can’t wait for him to meet my little guy. I hope our  boys are just as good as friends as his mom and I!
