Hello! Welcome to my Indianapolis photography page. I’m glad you’re here! My photography clients are like family to me, so I feel like it’s only fair to get a little personal with you.

I married Todd,  an Iowa boy, 20 years ago, and after all these years he’s still the person whose company I most enjoy.   We have two daughters, Emma & Lindsay, who are old enough to tie their own shoes and brush their own teeth, but still young enough to think their mamma is cool, even though those who knew me “way back when” would probably say I never was. If you knew me “way back when,” please don’t tell them I was not cool…they’ll figure it out soon enough. (Update 2019, we’ve been married 25 years now, the kids are grown.  And they still think I’m cool.  Usually.)


Maternity Photographer | Boudoir Photographer | Newborn Photographer | Indianapolis

Maternity & Newborn Photography have been near and dear to me since I had my own babies more than 20 years ago. 

I've been a photographer in the Indianapolis area for nearly 20 years now, specializing in maternity, newborn,and boudoir photography.

My Indianapolis boudoir studio caters to clients from Indianapolis, Carmel, Zionsville, Westfield, Fishers, Noblesville and all over the state.  I do boudoir photography parties at hotels and am happy to chat with you about traveling to your Indianapolis or Indiana home for your boudoir photo shoot.  We'll chat about the perfect lingerie to wear for your boudoir pictures and put together a plan for the best boudoir photoshoot!

Expecting a baby?  I would love to be your Indianapolis newborn photographer!  Let's start planning your newborn photoshoot now!  If you would like to see some of my best newborn baby photos, you can visit my infant portrait gallery by clicking here.  Once you're ready to reserve a time to take your newborn pictures, just call the portrait studio and we will reserve a date for your newborn baby photoshoot.   We can talk about adding mom and dad to your newborn portrait session, adding siblings for first family portraits, and we'll chat about how to prepare your newborn baby for pictures.  

Before your newborn baby arrives, be sure to capture the beauty of pregnancy with a maternity photoshoot in Indianapolis.  I'm happy to design the perfect pregnancy photo shoot for you at my Indianapolis-area studio or at the location of your dreams!  For the best maternity photography, I recommend having your maternity photos taken about 6 weeks before your newborn baby is scheduled to arrive.  I'm happy to take your maternity pictures outdoors or in the studio, whichever you prefer.  To see some of the best maternity photographs that are near and dear to me, visit my pregnancy portrait gallery.

Did I happen to mention that senior portraits are some of my favorite photoshoots?  I do senior photography for students in Indianapolis, Westfield, Noblesville, Zionsville, and Carmel.  I'd love to start planning your senior pictures.
