I'm a wife, mom of 3, and artist from Indianapolis. My husband and I are dedicated to raising kind, thoughtful, loving, joyful children with big hearts. We believe in acceptance and inclusion. We believe in following your heart, learning from and connecting with people from all walks of life, and living life in alignment + speaking your truth.
My work is inspired by our children and our parenting journey. I believe when we look back at photographs of this season, the authentic moments and memories will be the ones that matter most. I believe in creating deep, rich experiences during your family session that provide images you truly love.
For some of the not-really-fun-stuff, just in case you'd like to know:
I graduated from Indiana University with a degree in Early Childhood Education and Child Development. I taught at a Reggio-Emilia based school before running Ivan & Louise full time starting in 2015, but my love of all things child development, building strong family connections, and the natural sense of wonder + curiosity of childhood has never left. I love incorporating that into my way of connecting with your children.
Two photographers on your wedding day means we provide a sense of security and creativity we wouldn't be able to provide if we weren't together. We can be in two places at once if needed, we capture two different angles throughout day, one of us can help with posing while the other is shooting, and working together gives us the opportunity for one of us to get the classic photographs while the other is getting more photos of the more spontaneous moments through different angles. This allows us to provide our couples with a wide variety of images that truly tell the story of their day.
Because we photograph every wedding together, we are able to provide our couples with a strong, consistent style. While we have our own areas of expertise and our own styles of creativity, we have become confident in our individual roles and that means a consistent shooting style for you to benefit from! We are always striving to become better and love having the support and encouragement from each other to do so as we work together to build your first heirlooms as a married couple.
We are both main photographers on your wedding day, as opposed to one main shooter and one second shooter. We can depend on each other for certain images or angles throughout the day, we know what each other needs with just a quick glance, and it provides more stability for you. We never have to worry about securing a second shooter or who that person may be. We know every time. It's the two of us at every wedding. You can trust and depend on us more because we are married and in the business together.
