Indianapolis Professional Photographer | The Experience

FAQs & Tips for Mamas

I love being an Indianapolis professional photographer! This career allows me to serve so many amazing families from Indianapolis and the surrounding areas. After watching countless mamas struggle to figure out what to wear, determine where to purchase clothing, trying to curl their hair and put on makeup, struggling to figure out what images to print, where to put them, and where to print them all while nursing a newborn and entertaining a toddler! It can be so incredibly overwhelming! I realized very quickly that I needed to find a way to help these mothers. And that began a whole new experience for my BLP mamas!

Presession Planning

After booking your portrait experience we will meet for a planning session (virtually or in person). This is the time to select wardrobe, location, and begin thinking about what artwork you would like to create from your session or your membership as a whole. Would you like an heirloom album with all of your favorite images, a statement piece for your little one’s nursery, a gorgeous gallery wall for your entry? It’s the perfect time to start brainstorming but know that no decisions need to be made until after you’ve seen your images!

The client wardrobe is a curated collection of dresses for mothers and clothing for children (up to size 8). These items are all selected to be both flattering and beautiful on camera. No more running from store to store with your small children in tow to find the perfect dress or the inevitable returns when things do not fit or match perfectly! Most dad’s already have everything they need, but we will be able to coordinate an outfit for him at your planning session as well.

Professional Hair and Makeup

On the morning of your session a professional hair and makeup artist will come to your home to help you get ready. After having three babies myself, I can confidently say the last thing you’ll want to worry about postpartum is getting ready. Those first few weeks with a newborn are exciting and awe-inspiring, but they’re also exhausting, full of questions and changes. Having someone come do your hair and makeup while you can remain comfortably in your home and continue to snuggle your children is the best way to begin your session!

Designing and Ordering Appointment

Three to four weeks after your session we will meet for your design & ordering appointment. This is when you will be able to view your images and make your final selections on custom artwork! Your digital files will be available shortly after your order is placed and physical artwork will be delivered to your home within 6-10 weeks. We can even commission someone to install the artwork for you so you can enjoy your images without having to lift a finger!
