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.

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!

Indianapolis Family Photographer - Urban Chalkboard Mommy & Me

Last month I had the chance to photograph more Indianapolis families at The Urban Chalkboard. This special day was spent celebrating some of the most important members of each family... Mom! 

Every mom out there is a super hero in my book. Seeing these sweet moms with their adorable kiddos showed me just how many wonderful mother's we have here in the Indianapolis and Carmel area. You could tell how much each one loved their family and their children!

The world can sometimes be a tough place for moms. There is so much pressure to be the perfect mom, when really all of us are perfect in the eyes of our children. I am very thankful that I had the chance to hopefully help each of these ladies to relax a little bit and enjoy their special day.

These images make me so happy and I really hope that all of the moms had fun with their families and kids. Way too often mom is the one behind the camera and not in front getting her picture taken (guilty!) So this special event at The Urban Chalkboard was an excellent way to make sure these moms had some updated photos with their little ones. Cheers to all of the hard-working moms out there!

If you are a mom, dog mom or mom-to-be and need some updated images I would love to meet you and help capture your memories!

Travis Smith Memorial Golf Classic - Terre Haute Photography

I recently had the chance to photograph an important local event in the Terre Haute area. The Travis Smith Memorial Golf Classic, honors Travis Smith who was a local Terre Haute South and Ball State golfer and was a friend to many people in the Wabash Valley.

He passed away 10 years ago and in this time his family has created this event to raise funds for local junior athletes and to bring together many people who loved and cared about Travis. It was so great to see many people in the community participating in such a wonderful outing.
