indianapolis photographer | FAMILY PHOTOS for soulful people

Hello! I’m so glad you stopped by on your search for Indianapolis photographers.

I’m Ashlee, an Indy transplant from northern Indiana. I fell in love with this city because of its love of the arts and its down to earth people. Those are the type of people I like to photograph.

Picture this.

A balmy Midwest summer evening. You and your kids are barefoot in a gorgeous park. And instead of doing posed photos, you’re just being REAL together. The kids are running around giggling. You’re hugging your significant other as you both watch the kids play. Your heart is full of love for this family you’ve created. You feel a twinge in your soul because you know they won’t be little forever. All too soon this moment will be gone. And so I photograph all of this. I try to capture all the joy and also that longing. I want these photos to take you right back to this moment. I want to capture the true spirit of your family. I want to create something that DOES last forever.

My motto is to ditch perfection and bring in more authenticity. While I do get a few "smiling for the camera" pictures, my family photography is about letting go and being free. Free to play, free to move, free to express whatever feelings arise.

My photos tell a whole story, from the first picture to the last. I offer custom designed albums so you can replay the story over and over again.

Most of my clients live here in Indianapolis, or the burbs in Zionsville, Carmel, Fishers, Brownsburg or Greenwood. But you’re welcome to come to me from anywhere! I’ve had clients travel to me from Whitestown, Muncie, Fort Wayne, and even Evansville.


Please know that as much as I wish I could set up an appointment for every client who gets in touch, sometimes I’m unable to find room in my schedule. It’s always best to contact me early. I’m often booked solid 4 to 12 weeks out. So it’s never too soon to set up your session in advance!
