Sofia :: Indianapolis Shelbyville Indiana Newborn Photographer

I am a newborn photographer located in central Indiana, serving Indianapolis and surrounding areas. I have been photographing newborns for over 8 years now and love every minute.

Meet beautiful little Sofia! She had the most beautiful dark hair and is just so pretty…of course…look at her Mommy and Daddy! I just loved meeting this sweet family and I’m so glad they traveled the distance to come and see me. Sofia was so funny and gave me some of the best facial expressions ever! I just love it when their little personalities come out. I can tell she’s going to be a character! Congratulations to this sweet family!

This session took place at my studio in Shelbyville, IN.  For booking information and availability, please contact me by email at or visit the contact page of this site!newborn girl on pink backdropnewborn girl on tan backdrop

Geoff & Kelsey ~ Indiana Barn Wedding

Welcome to Geoff and Kelsey’s beautiful October wedding! Their wedding took place on October 5 and even though it was early in October…brrrrrr was it chilly! That’s ok though because they didn’t let it keep them (or those around them) from having an absolutely perfect day. They planned to have their ceremony under the old sycamore tree on the Coffee Creek Ridge property but since it was so cold, they decided to move it inside the barn and keep their guests warm! It turned out just as beautiful in the barn! I really enjoyed this wedding for so many reasons but one of the things I loved most was that they not only had wonderful family with them that day but they also had so many close friends! Check out their huge wedding party! When I see a couple surrounded by so many people that care about them, it speaks of their character. Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Novak!

Oliver & Griffin ~ Twin Newborn Session {Indianapolis Central Indiana Newborn photographer}

Wellllll…I obviously haven’t blogged in a while…yikes!! I’ve been busy busy working and having a couple of babies haha. I now have 3 kids 5 and under so I’ve officially lost what sanity I had left hahaha. Since I have about a million sessions and weddings that I haven’t blogged, there is no way I’ll get caught up. So, I’m going to just start fresh and try to keep up this year! I photographed these special little guys a little while ago but I just had to share their twin newborn session on my blog! Meet Griffin and Oliver! I absolutely loved meeting these two and they were sooooo sweet. I just love photographing twins. They’re so much fun to pose together and I love seeing how they move and cuddle with each other. I had the copy and paste hats to use for them (even though they’re not identical) and when I put them on, Mommy mentioned they were perfect because Daddy works with computers! So fun! Thanks so much for coming to see me Griffin and Oliver!

Brandon + Jordan :: Married :: October Indiana Barn wedding

Brandon and Jordan’s perfect October wedding! I absolutely loved all of the details of this wedding and how unique everything was, right down to the moss on the tables. One of my favorite parts was the seating area they put on the porch of the barn. It made it so relaxed and home-y! I also LOVED the colors of the bridesmaids dresses since of course I’m a neutral-lover haha. And…can we talk about her ring for a minute?!?! Haha how stunning! I could go on forever about all of their beautiful decor but I’ll let the photos do the talking for me! Brandon and Jordan were such a wonderful couple to work with. I feel like I say that about all of my wedding couples but I wouldn’t say it if it weren’t true. I really am so lucky to work with such amazing people and to be welcomed into such an important day in their lives. I hope you’re doing well and enjoying married life Brandon & Jordan!

Shane and Lisa ~ Batesville Oldenburg Shelbyville Indiana Wedding

Here’s Shane and Lisa’s wedding! Not only was everything about their day beautiful (including them), but they also had the most perfect spring weather…complete with the crab apples blooming! Their wedding took place at the Oldenburg Academy in Oldenburg, IN and then we traveled to Shelbyville, IN for their barn reception at Coffee Creek Ridge. I really enjoyed their wedding ceremony because they were married by Father Landwerlen. He’s the same priest that I spent many years listening to before his retirement and he married my husband and I. He also baptized two of our children.  Even though I already knew Shane and Lisa because they’re my sister’s in-laws, it was so fun getting to know them even better and being a part of their wedding day.  My sister Lori was a bridesmaid and the adorable little girl in the photos is my niece Halle (I can’t believe how much she’s grown since then!).  I always said I would travel after college, but… well… life happened haha and I haven’t traveled much. These two are traveling and living life and I really enjoy following them (and their dog Ira) on their blog!
