Jill and Jared! Indianapolis, Indiana Engagement Session

March 23, 2023

Welcome to the blog Jill and Jared!  [and kiddos!]

We started off including the kiddos in Jill and Jared’s engagement session, and it was delightful to hang out with them a bit and get to see each of their personalities.  The Indianapolis Children’s Museum is a favorite place they like to hang out, so we headed there, on what might have been the busiest day of the month [oye, Minecraft opening day!]. In hindsight we maybe should have picked a different day.  Ha!

BUT, the images we got of them all together are lovely.  And even though it was busy, it was fun to kind of wander around and photograph in some cool places in the museum.  Though my favorites are definitely outside the museum.

Jill and Jared, you two and the kids were awesome!  Can’t wait to hang out again for your wedding!


Nico Newborn Family Home Session! Langsing, Illinois

March 16, 2023

I’m trying to catch up on blogging, but life is full!  It’s a lovely type of full, so I’m not complaining.  And I’m giving myself grace, because raising kiddos, having your own small business and trying to keep the balance of me time as well, is… well, complicated.

So blogging is on the back burner.  BUT, I still want to share images with everyone!  I’m just absolutely not going to be able to feature every session… whomp whomp.

But I’ll do what I can!  And if your session never gets featured, don’t feel bad!  I am sure I loved you and your session!

So here’s a favorite little family session!  If you’re a long time blog reader, you remember Zachary’s newborn session from back in the day.  He’s a full grown toddler now, who was fun to hang out with, AND, we added in Nico!  His lovely baby brother.

He’s so cute.

I love my job.

Cheers to you friends!  You created another beautiful baby and I love that you’re part of my community.


PS: This baby was born in the fall and looks only minimally like this now.  TIME GOES TOO FAST!… but he also sleeps better than he did at this shoot, so that’s something :).

Murphy Family! Carmel, Indiana Family Session

February 27, 2023

Me : Maike, how many things are on your to-do list today?

Me to me : Roughly 8 million.

Me : And what are you doing today?

Me to me : Blogging a family because it’s been a while, and I need to tell people I still photograph families, and to book their session ASAP because I’m only taking limited amounts of sessions each month.
