The Riley-Burke Family | Indianapolis Maternity Photographer


June 19, 2023

Shortly after Shayla and her husband Miles found out they were pregnant, they asked me to photograph lifestyle newborn photos for when their first baby arrived and also wanted to add on a maternity mini session as well.  The golden light during their Spring maternity photos as their Indianapolis maternity photographer at 100 Acre Park couldn’t have been more perfect, and I can’t wait to share these images with you today on the blog! 

I actually met Shayla and Miles several years ago at their wedding!

Shortly after we moved to Indianapolis and I was establishing my photography business in our new city, I was second shooting for several photographers to get acquainted with different venues. I assisted another photographer to document Shayla and Miles’ wedding at Ritz Charles, and back then I would have never guessed that a few years later I’d be photographing families and newborns more and be lucky enough to have them as clients of my own as their Indianapolis newborn and maternity photographer!  Life is funny like that sometimes.  

As an Indianapolis newborn and maternity photographer, I love offering maternity mini sessions to all of my newborn clients. 

This gives me a chance to meet the family before the new baby arrives and celebrate the glowing mama.  I love to photograph these sessions between 26-34 weeks to ensure you’re not swollen (because hey, it happens to all of us!) and still feel like getting dressed up.  Towards the end of pregnancy, all I wanted to wear was my husband’s T-shirts and my trusty maternity leggings!  Shayla wore a more casual fitted dress that showed off her baby bump and paired well with all of the fresh Spring greenery at the park.  I love everything about their session, especially the golden light that hit just right!

Shayla and Miles, I loved being your Indianapolis maternity photographer!

I hope you love your images as much as I do.  It was a joy to have you both in front of my camera for the first time and I can’t wait to document the next chapter- welcoming your first baby home!
