WELCOME!

Welcome!

I'm Sami, an Indianapolis wedding photographer and lifestyle newborn photographer for couples & families who value their relationships over everything else!

Welcome to my blog & website! I am so glad you are here. Whether you are a first-time visitor or an old friend, I hope you enjoy this little space. I am an Indianapolis wedding photographer and lifestyle newborn photographer, and it is my absolute joy to capture the special moments in the lives of those around me.

I live in Indianapolis with my husband, Chris, our smiley little guys, Ryan, Adam, and Noah, and our fluffy pup, Graham! Being a wife and momma makes my world go 'round, and there is nothing that makes me happier than loving my boys.

If you stick around, you'll get a taste of my style. For now, I'll leave you with this: I believe photography is so much more than simply looking at the camera and saying “cheese”. It’s capturing emotion in a way that is authentic and seemingly effortless in order to share real moments & relationships. From your first kiss as husband and wife to your little ones's first days of life, I am honored to tell your story.

Love love love,
Sami

Hey there!

Being a wife and momma are two of my favorite things about this life, and I am so thankful for the joy these three bring me every day! Couch snuggles, tickle wars, light saber battles, walks through the neighborhood, & eating locally are our favorites!

TIME WITH
MY BOYS

Chris & I met in the Fall and were married three Falls later, so it's only fitting that life is just a bit sweeter when the leaves change. Throw in some pumpkin chai, crunchy leaves, and a scone or two, and I'm one happy girl!

There's something about fresh blossoms that lights up a whole room, and I find that even the smallest bouquet makes all the difference. My love for neutrals carries over to our housing decor, but a bustle of eucalyptus leaves or a vase full of tulips always does the trick!

...otherwise known as my alma-mater! I never knew how meaningful a small town could be until my four years at IU. Bloomington became home in a way I never imagined, and Chris and I try to go back as much as we can! 

INDIANA UNIVERSITY

04.

Mornings are my sacred space: I love waking up before the boys to enjoy coffee, spend time with Jesus, and get some work done, too! It's often tempting to press snooze, but I'm always thankful when I choose to start my day on my own pace!
