Proposal in the American Legion Mall Downtown Indianapolis – Indianapolis Wedding Photography

The day of this session the forecast was calling for rain all day. But the goom-to-be insisted that today had to be the day of the proposal and that it had to be outside in the spot where these two had their first kiss. The plan was to do the proposal rain or shine! As I was leaving my house to head to Downtown Indy it was full on thunderstorming – lighting, thunder, the whole 9 yards! I was super nervous!! I brought protective rain gear just in case but I didn’t really think this would play out well in a thunderstorm. Well as I was driving along the rain slowly let up until I drove under a beautiful rainbow! I knew this had to be a good sign. I crossed my fingers that the rain would hold off until after the surprise proposal and it totally did!! Someone was looking out for this couple!

Like I said above, the proposal happened on the spot where these two had their first kiss. It wasn’t far from where they currently live downtown. The goom-to-be wanted to throw off the bride-to-be by proposing on HIS birthday. She was shocked and didn’t see it coming at all. She was shocked and giddy and there were even a few tears shed. It was adorable!!

After the proposal happened we walked around downtown Indianapolis so I could get some shots of the newly engaged couple. It couldn’t have been a more perfect night! I’m sure these two won’t forget it any time soon.

Family pictures at the Apple Orchard – Pleasant View Orchard in Fairland, IN

This was a sunrise session. This family humored me and got up to be at the apple orchard at 7 in the morning so that we could catch the beautiful morning light. I’m so glad they did! It was a stunning morning.

I can’t thank the folks at Pleasant View Orchard in Fairland, Indiana enough for letting us come to the orchard so early. We had the place to ourselves and it was a stunning property.

The Tomanski Family – Indianapolis Family Photography

Meet the Tomanski family. They couldn’t have been sweeter. It’s clear that their little birthday girl has these parents wrapped around her finger. The birthday girl has the most beautiful blue eyes! They are so blue that you can see how stunning they are even when the image is done in black and white. These guys were a joy to photograph and the outdoor 1st birthday cake smash was a pretty sweet ending to their sunset session. I hope you enjoy the pictures!

A Beautiful Maternity Session After the Storm – Carmel Maternity Photography

Right before this session happened it was raining. The radar said there was 0% chance of rain however, it was still raining a lot. But we went for the session anyways and I’m so glad we did!! About the time we got out of our cars the rain stopped and the sun came out! Then we were left with some awesome clouds and a stunning sunset. I couldn’t have asked for a more picturesque day! maternity photography with beautiful sky after stormsunset maternity picture with weeping willow tree and watercarmel family maternity photography family at sunset for maternity session the whole family in Carmel, IN happy toddler flying! black and white baby picture

A Sunset and Tall Grass – Carmel Indiana Family Photography

I’ve had the joy of photographing this family for a few years now. It’s always great to see them. Photographing families with older kids is a lot of fun. They have lots of personality but take direction better then your average 2 year old. 🙂

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!

creek side mini session in Carmel, IN - KristeenMarie photography

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:

Maternity Session for Baby Number Two

These are some of my favorite clients. They have been clients of mine for a long time… since their first little one was born. They were clients when I didn’t have a studio and I showed up at their home with a LOT  of stuff – backdrops, beanbag,  studio lights, wraps, buckets, and the whole nine yards. In retrospect It was a lot for clients to deal with especially ones that just had a new baby. But they didn’t care. They still like my work enough to keep coming back. In fact these clients now live in Columbus, IN and they drive to Indy for their picture needs every year (and this year a few times so that I can capture their new baby).

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. My favorite part of my job is being able to watch families like this one grow! I’m so grateful for clients like these ones. <3

Avon Town Park Wedding – Indianapolis Wedding Photographer

Meet Brittany and Brian. These two are the sweetest couple! Their wedding day wasn’t just to celebrate their nuptials. It was also both of their birthday’s! How cool is that. They now share the same birthday and it’s also their anniversary. They coined their wedding day their Birthaversary.

Their wedding took place at the Avon Town Park in Avon, IN which is just west of Indianapolis. It couldn’t have been a more beautiful blue sky day which is good because both wedding and reception took place outside.
