Capturing the Magic

Family, at its root, is about connection. The touch, the joy, the wild and crazy, and the peace that settles over a home when all other distractions wash away.  As a Mom, Indianapolis area family photographer, and family childcare provider, capturing connected families holds a special place in my heart. I have a passion for working with children and families in every busy, slow, beautiful, hard, and insane stage of life. As Central Indiana parents, we watch our babies bloom from diapers to diplomas, and wonder at how time flows around our families. I want to freeze that magic children glow with and carry it around in my pocket.

Unfortunately, that's not really possible, so I reach for the next best thing- Photographs.

It's about the Heart

"There's an urgency to soak in these moments with our children. There's a longing to bottle up every ounce of these memories and keep them tucked safely in our hearts. there is a beauty and a pain that runs deep in a mama's heart... excitement for their future, but dread of them growing up. Longing for a full night's sleep, but missing the midnight rocking chair moments. Wanting them to succeed, but fearing they will no longer need you.

A parent's heart is constantly rocked back and forth between the waves of changing emotions. A never-ending battle within us. But that battle is also the proof of our love." -Caitlin Henderson

That's what love is like, it's like coming home.

Family Photo Sessions rarely go the way parents expect. Let's face it- the idea of a family photo session can be daunting to everyone- even mom and dad. The outfits, the location, the worry that your kid is going to lose it, body image, the weather- there are so many factors that can throw stress into a session. 

My job is to take away all the stress, second guessing, child (and spouse!) decompressing by helping you plan and curate a session that is all about your love and the connections between you. Through the booking process, Style + Select virtual styling service, prepping your family for an amazing experience, I will help you through it all.

Extended Family Sessions

All images are included for these extended family sessions, which last up to an hour and a half, and typically take place 2 hours before sunset. Investment: $450

Aunts, Uncles, Grandparents, siblings, cousins... I love extended family sessions because I love the different family dynamics within a large family unit. Don't worry, I make sure to get the big groups and all the little break downs for each individual family that builds into a whole. These sessions are the most portrait-oriented, but I still use all the prompts and guidance that make these sessions fun, memorable, and full of laughter.
