Baby Louie Scott is here and it is very clear that he is very loved by his parents! Louie has the BEST lashes and almost red hair. He did a great job for his newborn photos and gave us lots of cute facial expressions. He seems like such a snuggly little baby baby and seems to have a calm and quiet demeanor. He was such a joy to have in the studio! Being a newborn photographer is seriously the best.

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!

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.

Baby Boy Everett – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

This sweet little bundle of joy is Everett and I am so glad that I was able to meet him! The original plan was that I was going to be able to meet him right when he came into the world as I was the birth photographer- but then COVID happened….and we didn’t get to meet right away. He is such a precious little guy though and was a little less than 7 pounds when he was born.  Meeting him at day 5 still was wonderful! He gave us a lot of really cute expressions and even a few smiles. You can just tell that his parents are so in love and excited that he made his arrival- exactly on his due date too!

This beautiful little girl has a full head of hair and is such a sweet little baby. She joins her mom and dad, and her big sister! I am so lucky to be able to capture the milestone moments of people as they welcome new babies into their families, but it makes me even more happy when I get to continue watching them grow and get so have frequent updates because they are family!

Newborn Boy – Indianapolis Newborn Photography

Newborn Nolan is in the spotlight today and he is just such a precious little man. He joins the family with two big sisters that are just head over heals in love with him! I absolutely adore the color palette that mom picked out for everyone’s clothes- it made the photos really pop and look fantastic!
Nolan weight in at a little more than 7 pounds when he was born and he even came a few days early. He looks so adorable in all of the photos, but I particularly think the one of him in the little wooden crib is just the cutest! This family was such a joy to have in the studio and I look forward to working with them again!

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!!
