Photographing your moments in San Francisco, California






I like to provide my clients with both lifestyle portraits that showcase natural connection as well as posed portraits. 

customized for YOU.

a bit about my artistic approach:

I'm drawn to deep wood tones, golden glowing sunsets, genuine emotion, natural skin tones, connection between family members, negative space, and light airy skies. With all that said, it's most important to me to know what makes your family click so I can turn that into a custom session for you. Don't let that scare you. I'll do all the heavy lifting along the way. 

The baby whisperer in action!

Indianapolis Photographer

The KristeenMarie Photography Studio

My studio is located on the north side of Indianapolis in Carmel, Indiana. The studio is typically used for posed newborn sessions, 1st year milestone sessions and the popular cake smash sessions.

Outside the studio, I love to photograph families at every stage! This means your images can be taken anywhere - in the studio, your home, a local park, an indoor building, or a local venue. The sky is the limit!

Welcome to

take a peek inside the studio:


I got my degree in Computer Graphic Technology. Started working in tech while also running a photography business. Basically all I did was work, but no regrets!

Yahoo! My mom still thinks I'm nuts, but it's the best career decision I've ever made. 

Quit my day job to do photography full time


Beth does all things design, invoicing and admin. She helps keep this place a well organized and oiled machine.

Cheers to 2023 and beyond!

2015 - 2022

Ended up having three wonderful babies and one horrible 2nd trimester miscarriage. Learned though all this how precious life is and how common infertility and miscarriage is. Now I'm a huge advocate for those suffering with infertility and miscarriage. And my family is complete with 3 uniquely amazing kids. 

Struggled with infertility and loss.

It seriously doesn't get any better than this.  

I'm a type A, overachieving, brutally honest, labradoodle loving, Mom of 3 who is living her best life photographing babies and families. 

In my free time you might find me baby wearing, taking the kids on an outdoor adventure, hanging with my girlfriends, watching my kids play sports (right now that includes soccer, baseball, basketball and dance), doing pilates, attempting some new craft or trying any new restaurant I can find.
