Voted one of the Best Newborn Photographers in Indianapolis

Maternity Photography Indianapolis

Indianapolis Maternity Photography

One of my absolute favorite photography sessions is the maternity photography session. It’s such a special time in a couple’s life. I’ve been photographing maternity portraits in Indianapolis, Carmel and Westfield for more than 15 years. I recommend that you schedule your Indianapolis maternity photography session about six weeks before your baby’s due date. This way your belly is nice and round.Many expectant parents choose to have their maternity photography session done in my Westfield portrait studio.  Studio maternity sessions are especially great when it’s cold or rainy and an outdoor maternity photography session isn’t possible.  Of course there’s nothing like outdoor maternity portrait sessions in Indianapolis.  Most are done outside in the wild grasses at my 4-acre Westfield portrait studio.  I have some gowns you can borrow for your session or you can bring your own perfect gown for your maternity photography session.  If you want to wear your own clothing we can chat about what will look best in maternity portraits.You’re always welcome to bring the new baby’s siblings and include them in your Indianapolis maternity photography session.  It’s a great time for families to snuggle and hang out together for the new baby comes.

Reviews for Indianapolis Newborn Photographer Leah Severson

"Leah is an incredible photographer. Her photos really capture our newborn's personality, which we love. Will be repeat customers."

"WOWZA! I’m a Forever Fan. What a talented photographer and beautiful (inside and out) soul. Great images. Truly spectacular. A dream to work with again and again."

"Leah is phenomenal! Prior to our session we spoke about the details of what we wanted and didn’t want with our newborn photography session. I was so nervous our baby girl would be fussy and crying but she did great! The session itself was very relaxed and slow paced. Leah knew how to calm our little girl and keep her sleepy in order to catch the perfect shots. Leah has so many adorable newborn outfits and accessories to choose from so that is one less thing to worry about. My husband and I are very pleased with her work! Incredibly talented photographer!"

"Leah's work is amazing. I was nervous about my newborn waking up and crying during the process, but she has the magic touch as he slept through the entire process!"

"Leah is wonderful! She has such patience working with the babies and I am so happy with how wonderful and beautiful my daughter, Mabel, looked in her newborn photos. I will definitely stick with Leah for all of Mabel's photos in the future and she will watch her grow up through pictures. Leah has such a unique take and definitely stands out from others. I am so grateful for her talent and wonderful self."
