Indianapolis NEWBORN & family photographer

welcome, friend!

I'm mackenzie

I would be honored to help you preserve yours! 
When I'm photographing your family, I'm not thinking about my instagram feed. I'm focused on YOUR vision for your images. I'm thinking about the joyful family embrace you want framed above your mantle. Or that big empty wall in your living room you've wanted to cover in candid photos of your babies for so long. I'm thinking about the story your birth photo album will tell as you flip through its pages. The little details and the quirks and the connection unique to your specific family - THAT is what I want to help you capture, preserve, and enjoy tangibly for years to come.

Let's work together to craft a meaningful family photography experience completely customIZED to YOU


the experience

Let’s make newborn photos a relaxed and enjoyable experience by keeping the focus on your natural connection with your baby. No need to spend hours working to keep baby in a deep sleep for forced poses; our goal is to capture you and your baby in your own element, at home together in the comfort and beauty of the everyday. {LEARN MORE ABOUT THE NEWBORN EXPERIENCE}

Let’s cater your family session to your real, human children and actually make it a fun evening! Got kids that would rather run and play than stand still and say cheese for a camera? Perfect - you are my people!! There are several ways we can keep photos fun (even for dad, I swear)! It does not have to be a stressful experience! In fact, I don't even want you to stress about outfit planning - use my access code for a personalized styling site called Style & Select to help you put together a cohesive and photo-friendly look based on the vibe you're going for, complete with direct links to purchase any of the suggested outfits (adaptable to any budget)! Easy peasy. {LEARN MORE ABOUT THE FAMILY EXPERIENCE}

Finally, let’s get your photos off the computer and into real, tangible displays you can cherish for years to come. I am passionate about photo album and gallery wall design, and offer both in full-service form. I am available to meet with you prior to our session to help you figure out exactly which heirloom quality products best fit your home, style, and budget. I keep your vision in mind from day 1, and curate not only your wall gallery to that vision, but even the types of shots that I take! 

Are you ready to get started?! I can't wait to hear from you!

My kids acted like wild banshees during our newborn session and she was completely unphased. I could tell she is a fellow mom of littles and she has such a calming presence, which my postpartum self very much needed. I also needed someone to take care of EVERYTHING for me, which she did so beautifully. I would recommend her to anyone!

"mackenzie is so professional, flexible, generous, and kind."

Mackenzie took amazing photos of my family, I couldn't be any happier. Her personality is amazing and she knows how to get my kids to smile! I can't wait to do family photos with her again. She was such a pleasure to do business with.

"i'd give 10 stars if it was an option"

Mackenzie made the whole process so easy and fun. My kids didn't even complain and that is a MAJOR accomplishment in my book. I love that our photos look natural and nothing looks forced or posed. And our album is so, so gorgeous. I have looked at it every single day since receiving it. We can't wait for our next session with Mackenzie!
