Celebrating a Purrfect First Birthday with a Pink and Gold Cat-themed Cake Smash Session

Recently, I had the opportunity to document a delightful first birthday cake smash session with a delightful twist – a pink and gold cat-themed celebration! This unique theme added an adorable touch of feline whimsy to […]

Boho Sunshine Cake Smash Session- KristeenMarie Photography

This adorable little man is one and we got to celebrate! We did a boho take on the “you are my sunshine” theme. There was also a small rainbow added in as an ode to this guy being a rainbow baby. The birthday boy is the third baby in the family that I have photographed […]

Sweet Baby Girl’s Sitter Session – Westfield, IN Child Photography

This sweet baby girl was all smiles for her sitter session at 8 months old. She had the BEST baby rolls. I mean look at those cheeks, wrists and ankles. Just. The. Best! Such a fun little session with one of my favorite families. I loved her sweet little outfits and her curly hair. I […]

What just happened? 2022 A Year In Review

2022 was a great year! Personally, we welcomed our 3rd and final addition to our family, baby Luka. Professionally I photographed 191 sessions. When I added up all the sessions that number shocked me, as I took off 3.5 months for maternity leave in there!  I’m not going to lie, finding the work life balance […]

Winter ONEderland 1st Birthday Cake Smash

As a photographer, winter is a slower time of year for me. I’m still shooting in the studio – lots of newborns, cake smash sessions and milestone sessions. But I’m not shooting much outdoors (except for the occasional maternity session).  This gives me some time to get to things I put on the back burner […]

Shaelyn is One – Pink, Gold, and Mint Floral Balloon Arch Cake Smash

Yay for another adorable cake smash session on the books for this wonderful family! I’ve had so much much fun watching and capturing all three of these kiddos throughout their first year. This cake smash session *might* have been my favorite of the three. We did a floral balloon arch in pinks, gold, and mint. […]

A Creek Side Outdoor Newborn Photography Session in Indianapolis

Meet Griffin. He was born at the end of June and I feel so lucky that I got to take his newborn photos. His parents absolutely love to travel and they also love being outdoors so this was the perfect setting for Griffin’s newborn photos. I fall in love with these outdoor newborn sessions every […]

Purple, Gold, Maroon, and Pink Birthday Shoot – Cake Smash Session

I’ve been photographing these three adorable siblings since the oldest was tiny. This session was bittersweet because I know that I don’t get to see this sweet family every few months now. Here is to hoping they have another little cutie soon! 🙂 This adorable cake smash session included some of my favorite colors – […]

Heart 1st Birthday Cake Smash Session

This little sweet HEART is one! Her birthday is in February, hence the heart themed cake smash. I have enjoyed watching this little lady grow over the year. She was a little short on smiles until we introduced her to the cake and she was super excited and smiley! I love how the colors came […]

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 […]
