The Urban Chalkboard Indianapolis Family Photography Mini Sessions

From time to time, I host some short and simple mini portrait sessions in partnership with The Urban Chalkboard near Indianapolis located on the northside in Carmel. Over the past year I have developed a lovely little partnership with the owners and staff at The Urban Chalkboard and I cannot recommend them enough to anyone with young children! They are truly one of my favorite spots in the Indianapolis area.

If you’ve seen my social media posts you may be wondering what these little sessions include, so I wanted to provide a few details if you are thinking of stopping by to join in on one!

How long do the sessions last?

The session lasts about 5 minutes. It may be hard to believe, but I can usually get a variety of shots and expressions during this quick time. If your child is having a rough day (I know mine has her moments!) or doesn’t come out of their shell right away, The Urban Chalkboard has plenty of space for children to relax and explore. I normally stay a few minutes after the sessions finish, in case any families need a bit of extra time.

What type of backdrop do you use?

I include a simple and classic backdrop (black or white, minimal decor) in order to give a timeless look that will display well in your home.

How many images will I receive?

Most sessions produce 5+ images in both black and white and color.

What style are the photos?

All of the images are portraits and normally shot in a fairly tight frame i.e. shots from the shoulders/waist up. They are normally a more traditional, look at the camera style image, but I try to include some variety in expressions.

When are the sessions hosted?

Only on select dates (3-4 times) throughout the year, usually around specific holidays or events. Be sure to follow my social media accounts to learn more or subscribe to The Urban Chalkboard’s newsletter!

How much do they cost?

We require a booking fee and that is applied towards your image purchase. Prices vary depending on the event, but normally the full 5+ image gallery is around $50.

How are these different from your normal family sessions?

My full family sessions last up to one hour and are shot at the location of your choice. Full family sessions also include wardrobe styling, additional service prior to and following your photos, more images and an image video slideshow. Sessions at The Urban Chalkboard are short, provide a small number of images and shot in a much more controlled/posed way, opposed to my lifestyle family work.

Why should I consider a mini session at The Urban Chalkboard?

Maybe it’s been way too long since you’ve updated your photos and a full session isn’t in the cards for you this year due to schedule, budget, etc… but you would really love an updated portrait of your child, or more importantly with your child. Or perhaps you’d like to surprise grandma, grandpa, dad, mom with a portrait session! These can be a simple and unique gifts and provide you with high quality images to display in your home.

Indianapolis Newborn Photographer - Noblesville Maternity Session

Maternity Photography at Potter's Bridge Park in noblesville indiana

I recently spoke with a fellow Indianapolis photographer friend about the type of photography I love the most and I'm starting to think it revolves around all things family, but more importantly newborn's and baby's first year

The first year of your newborn's life is such a special and amazing time, but the anticipation prior to their arrival is exciting, nerve-wracking, emotional and so life changing. Growing this beautiful little life inside your body is just a miracle and I feel so incredibly lucky to capture these images. 

This family could not have been more kind, more loving or more beautiful! They were so stylish and adorable, We spent the evening at a beautiful park in Noblesville and it was the perfect sunset for their session. It really made for the perfect evening and I had so much fun with their family. Luckily I will be seeing them again very soon when their new little one makes her way into the world this fall. I also loved meeting the new big-sister-to-be! She was the sweetest little girl and I can already tell she will be the best big sister.

Carmel Indiana Newborn Photography - Sunrise Maternity Session

This Carmel Indiana maternity session was such a special time for me and for my gorgeous cousin as she gets ready to welcome her newborn little girl. She has been wanting a child of her own for awhile now and I am so happy that her prayers have been answered. 

The joy of motherhood...

Being a mom is an incredible gift and if you're anything like my cousin you may feel a bit reluctant to do a maternity session. It can be hard to be the center of attention when you are 8 months pregnant. So she was hesitant, but she knew that her daughter will cherish these images for many years to come. After we did the session, she was soooo happy to have the photographs! These moments are so special and definitely something to capture. 

I know she will be the best mom ever ever! She comes from a long line of strong women and she will be such an amazing example and blessing to her sweet daughter. I can't wait to see the future holds for both of them. 

Get in touch...

If you are a mom-to-be looking to capture this special time in your life, reach out to me today. I love working with growing families and offer first year packages along with individual newborn, maternity and milestone sessions. Congrats to you on this new little adventure! 

Indy Mommy Market - Indianapolis Event Photography - Kelli White Photography

A beautiful morning at the Indy Mommy Market in Indianapolis

Earlier this summer I had the wonderful privilege of photographing a fabulous event on the northside of Indianapolis, the Indy Mommy Market. This maker's market features some fabulous local businesses who create beautiful products for kids and families.

I spent the morning capturing images of these gorgeous products and the event attendees. I also created a short and sweet video that features this great local event. They hold the Indy Mommy Market in the summer and winter season at the Hamilton County Fairgrounds in Noblesville. Be sure to check them out at a future event!

As a former event planner I love events of all shapes and sizes, if you are hosting an event and looking for a photographer I please reach out and let me document this special day!
