13 Year Old Twins – Urban Session in Downtown Zionsville, IN

I’ve enjoyed photographing this set of twins over the years. I can’t believe they are 13! They are little young adults and it’s blowing my mind. This session was a blast. I’m used to shooting families with little kids. Sessions normally involve lots of running around chasing toddlers, telling fart jokes (I’m not above that), and just overall being silly. But these two were much more easy going and the session was just so much fun to shoot. They don’t lack personality but they are also great at taking direction. It was such a good combo! We were also able to cover a lot of ground – brick wall, streets of Zionsville, flower shop, alley ways, and tall grass in Turkeyfoot park. Their gallery ended up with over 100 images and there was so much variety/diversity.

I don’t shoot senior photography. It’s just never been something I was super interested in shooting. I consider myself a kid person and that’s were I’ve found my niche. But this session has me questioning that. Why don’t I shoot seniors?! They are still fun to shoot and it’s a new challenge. I’m not sure if it’s something I’m going to offer in the future or not, but just throwing it out there. One thing is for sure, if these two ask me to photograph them for their senior pictures I’ll be there!

These two don’t take life too seriously and that’s the way it should be at 13! Thanks for letting me photograph your joy at this age!! I can’t wait to see you again.

A Christmas Maternity Session – Downtown Zionsville Maternity Photographer

I love downtown Zionsville for so many reasons. It’s minutes from my home so we spend a lot of time there. We love the restaurants, the festivals, shopping, and the farmers market. There is so much to do and it’s normally a pretty quiet area. It’s also so stinking adorable. The area has so much character with it’s brick streets, older architecture, and colorful storefronts.

Just a 2 minute car ride down the street from downtown Zionsville is an adorable little park as well. It’s called Creekside Nature Park. It’s a great contrast to the urban setting and helps round out the client’s gallery by giving it a little diversity. The park isn’t huge, but it’s got great lighting and lots of all grass. In the warmer months it also has some lovely greenery and trees.

When these long time clients of mine asked to do their maternity photography session in downtown Zionsville I was thrilled. In the winter time urban settings are best (since the more rustic settings just look a little dead). So this was the perfect spot for them! The city was all decked out for the holidays which we used to our advantage. It helped that this mama also had a green dress to go with the holiday theme.

Sessions with toddlers are always sweet. This little big-brother-to be was excited to play which was just what we need for some adorable pictures of him. He had fun running around, touching his mama’s belly, and being tossed around by his dad.

Family of Six at Fort Harrison State Park – Indianapolis Family Photographer

I’ve adored photographing this beautiful family over the years. These 4 girls are always such a joy. The two oldest girls are twins. I also enjoy seeing their bond and I maybe have gotten a few extra pictures of the two sisters together because they were too sweet not to capture. My smile was as big as theirs while I was shooting them. They wanted a more rustic setting this year for pictures so they chose Fort Harrison State Park in Indianapolis. It’s lovely this times of year. While we were out shooting the the tall grass we even saw a little fawn. That’s a first for me while shooting – so fun!

A Brand New Baby SISTER! – Zionsville Newborn Photographer

These four handsome boys added a sweet baby sister to their crew! This was a super fun session and the boys were super over the top in love with their new little sister. They couldn’t keep their hands off of her and they wanted to love on her the whole time. They all insisted on taking a picture of each of them along with their new baby sister as well. The big brothers would fight over who would get to hold the baby during the different shots. Eliana Grace is going to be very loved and protected with all of these people watching over her!
The backlit images with the 4 boys and the baby is one of my all time favorite images.
The family added on an outdoor session (images at end of post). It was a fall day with crazy unpredictable weather but we were able to shoot  (Thank goodness because they drove 1.5 hours to get to the shoot) and the images ended up stunning!

The Hazlett Family – Zionsville Family Photographer

This sweet family was so much fun. The kids were all so easy going that we were able to get a ton of pictures during this session. I think their gallery had near 140 images!  We did everything from posed smiles at the camera to ring around the rosy. It was a perfect Summer night for pictures with a beautiful Zionsville, IN family.

Sunflower Mini Sessions – Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana

Sunflower family picturesAt long last, I’ve got more info on the much anticipated Sunflower Mini sessions!

These sessions will take place at Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana. The sunflower field on this farm is perfectly positioned for ideal lighting. These sessions are sure to be dreamy. You can dress them up with the ladies in a long flowing gown or dress them down in denim. I typically recommend earthy tones or soft pastels for clothing. Natural fabrics (cotton) look especally good with this natural environment. I don’t recommend bold patterns or bright colors for this setting.  Either way, with this setting, they will be stunning.

The dates below are the farm’s best guess as to when the sunflower fields will be blooming. There is only a two week window for the flowers. If they don’t bloom when expected we will have to move the dates around slightly. That being said, last year they hit the predicted dates exactly. So I’m hopeful these dates won’t have to move.

The details:

  • 20 minutes of shooting time
  • At least 15 digital files delivered via online gallery
  • Sorry, no pets can participate
  • Limit of 6 total people – no extended families
  • Located at Spencer Farm in Noblesville, Indiana
  • Cost is $350 – $50 discount for past clients

Sunset Dates:

  • July 15
  • July 16
  • July 21
  • July 24

Everyone loved these sessions last year and they booked quickly. So if you are interested in doing these I would recommend booking sooner rather than later. You can book your session here.

These sunflower mini sessions should be a blast! However, if you are looking to do family pictures in another location I would be happy to talk though that with you as well. I’m an Indianapolis photographer serving all of central Indiana.

In the Village – Downtown Zionsville Maternity Photography Session

This couple were troopers as it was freezing – like less than 20 degrees for their session. but they didn’t complain one bit! We started the session in the studio since it was so cold and then moved to the Zionsville Village. I absolutely LOVE this location! It is where I did my last maternity session- so it’s most definitely a favorite. The area is so cute and cozy and it was empty given the weather and COVID. I loved the outfits that they chose and moms professionally done hair and makeup were stunning- she went all out!

If you are looking for an Indianapolis maternity photographer don’t hesitate to let me know. I would love to photograph your baby bump and follow you into new motherhood with newborn photography.

The Randall Family – Indianapolis Family Photographer

Sometimes I get labeled as a baby photographer. It’s true a lot of the families I shoot have toddles and babies in them. It’s also true that I’m really good with kids. However, the reason I shoot so many families with babies in them is because I meet a most of my family photography clients when they have their newborns and then they stick with me (which I love!) to capture their families year after year. This family however, has no toddlers and it’s just as fun! It wasn’t nearly as exhausting – if you have a toddler you know what I mean. These guys humored me with my jokes meant for toddlers. So yes – I’m great with kids. But I’m also great with pre-teens, teens, and adults. The older families may laugh at me instead of with me but I don’t care one bit!

These girls and their parents were a joy to work with. Just a beautiful family and a beautiful Indiana day for pictures!
