Sydney Maternity Session | Greenfield, IN


I have tons of senior and newborn sessions I need to post on here. It feels like there is never enough time! However, I haven't spoken much about maternity sessions. The reason is, I only book maternity sessions for my newborn clients. It's a special thing I do only for them! And did you know a maternity session is only a $50 add on to your newborn session when you book them together? Here is a fun one I did this past week. We got lots of variety between fun and beautiful. Take a look! Then shoot me an email to plan yours! This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.




Before Syndey's session I asked her what her pregnancy cravings were. This is what she said ... chocolate milk shakes and fruity pebbles with marshmallows! So I got her some of both and we had some fun with them! As a mom of 4 almost grown babies, there's a good chance you will forget what your cravings were. This will always be a fun memory!



Every momma needs a shot like this. Pregnancy is so beautiful.












Newborn Studio Renovation


Shawna Marie Photography's newborn studio has a whole new look! It will now be much easier for you to view and choose props and relax out of the way while your newborn is being photographed. Take a look and then be sure to give us a call or email and book your session!




Parents this area is for you! A nice place to sit back and relax, or even take a nap while we work our magic! And a fully stocked changing table for your little one as well. Be sure to help yourself to diapers, wipes, lotion and diaper rash cream.



Don't forget to flip through our albums and magazines to think about what you might want to do with your own photos!



There are many color schemes and hats, headbands, outfits and wraps to make your session reflect your style, and lots of props to choose from as well.



And of course the 2 areas where the magic happens! We shoot the props with different drops and floors, and over to the right is our posing table for those sweet simple wrapped and natural baby poses.



2022 Newborn sessions are booking quickly. I highly recommend booking around 20 weeks to ensure that you have a spot. However, if you have had your baby and you are just now looking, don't hesitate to call and check. I save spots for the spontaneity of newborn births, so occasionally I will have last minute spots available.

Class of 2023 I'm looking for you!





In this day and age when there is such a disconnect in relationships, a time when kids only know how to talk to each other through text, when face to face relationships have all but been replaced, I want to put that connection and those relationships back into their lives. Every year I have a team of seniors (who start the 2nd half of their junior year) who want to be part of a family, make new friends, form new relationships, take pictures that bring their confidence levels up and just have fun together.It's a whole senior photo experience that starts with a raw beauty shoot and then consists of a full group themed session, a mini group session that they plan, their own personal senior session and some other perks along the way, like the chance to earn a destination session, and with options to upgrade to include a cap and gown shoot or a shoot with their best friends ...If you are class of 2023 and you'd like to be a part of this, just DM your email address!Applications are coming soon! You don't have to be the prettiest, funniest, tallest, shortest, most athletic or have the largest social following. you just have to be YOU and one of the first 16 girls to accept your spot.This group is for everyone, so don't be afraid to fill out an application. It does cost money, but if you are going to shoot with me anyway, you get a lot more for your money out of this experience. It's priceless! Don't be the one watching your friends later and wishing you'd done it! Send me that DM!If you're seeing this, please share as FB makes it hard to get the word out! This video includes girls from several different groups, and some sound quality is off, but the message is important! We need to hear what these kids are saying! ❤







Class of 2023 you can email you me your email address if you'd like to be the first to know when applications come out! It will be the end of this month! Just email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Class of 2022 Greenfield Central High School Senior | Brynn


Brynn is on my class of 2022 Senior VIP team. She upgraded to my ELITE VIP option which means she got my VIP (normally $650 session) with hair and makeup and she will get a gorgeous signature album and a complimentary cap and gown session at the end of the year plus all of the other things that come with being on my team. These images are a few from her main session, plus her sneak video! Brynn had such a fun shoot. She had several outfit changes and looks and wasn't afraid to be a little different. Her dad is big time into Green Day, so the end of her shoot, she punked out and did some shots for him. They might be my favorite! lol But honestly, I love SO many from this shoot it's hard to pick... Good luck mom and dad;)




If you want your own amazing and unique senior session, I still have a few spots left this summer and fall, but don't wait, because they are going fast!

Indiana Newborn Pictures | Nora


I absolutely LOVE babies and everything about photographing them! I recently had this little doll in my home studio! She slept like a dream, and I believe it was the shortest newborn session I have ever had. We got some gorgeous images in that time!




If you're pregnant and thinking of hiring someone for a newborn session, I'd love to be considered! I take pride in being very safe and knowledgeable on handling babies. I've been called a baby whisperer more than once! I am always taking online classes and working to elevate my experience to the next level! Go ahead and give us a call or text at 317-319-6045 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. to inquire or set your session up! Here are a few of my absolute favorites from little miss Nora's session!

Class of 2022 it's your turn! | The ultimate Indiana Senior Photo Experience



https://youtu.be/3gO71aLTD74



If you are looking for a senior photo experience that is EXTRA, look no further! At Shawna Marie Photography, we know that feeling your most beautiful begins on the inside. As a member of my team you will start the year with a raw beauty shoot and interview ... many of my previous team members have talked about how much this session changed and helped them see themselves in a different way.




After everyone has their raw beauty shoot we get together for a Meet and Greet where the whole team gets to meet. We have a little party or cookout and always a super fun cake from Gwendolyn Lee Cakery! If you have never had one of her cakes you MUST check them out!




At this party you will also be paired with a smaller group of girls. With these girls, you will get to plan your own mini themed shoot! Think out of the box, unique and fun for this one! We have done these at diners, record stores, shopping malls ... we have done movie themes, decade themes, farm themes etc. The sky is the limit! If you can think it, I'm game to try it!




Then you also get your own personal senior session. You choose locations and get your makeup done by our in house makeup artist, Amy! This session is also yours to plan, though I am happy to help with suggestions!




We will also do a group shoot with our entire group! We have done a Boho theme twice in 2 different locations, a 50s shoot in a home straight out of the 50s, an 80s shoot in a roller rink, a shoot at Victory Field, Waterfalls, Downtown and dressed fancy, a campfire shoot ... they have all been so much fun and I can't wait to plan the next one!




And on top of all of that, you have the option to try to earn a destination shoot! So far we have done this in Chicago once and Nashville, TN twice. The team votes on this one, so it's all you!




So, what are you waiting for? Applications are open and we are waiting for YOU! Just fill it out and I will get back with you ASAP so we can get this party started! Spots are limited, so don't wait! APPLY HERE

Class of 2020 Pretty Little Liars shoot | Indianapolis senior pictures





Every year my model team splits into groups and plans their own theme. They plan their outfits, hair and makeup, location and theme and I come out and make it happen. This group decided they wanted to do a Pretty little Liars theme and they knocked it out of the park! Check out a few of my favorites below!




Class of 2020 I am almost all booked up for Fall, and spring is filling in quickly! Class of 2021, I am taking names for my VIP model invite list next year!

Class of 2020 1950s style





I should have been around in the 50s. I just love everything about it, and pretty much every year, some of my seniors also want to do something out of the 1950's. We've done an indoor diner and an outdoor diner so I wanted to do something different this year. I spent hours scouring the internet ... Then I found it, and I knew I had to make this happen! A whole entire house straight out of the 50s. and it was only an hour and 10 minutes from my house! Not only that, it was an airbnb so I could actually rent the place!




I chatted back and forth with the owner who was super accommodating and happy to have our group there. The girls did an amazing job putting together their outfits and playing the part. I'm still in the process of going through the photos, but these were some faves that I pulled out. <3

Class of 2020 it's your turn!

I've been talking about my model program the last few posts as it's time to choose my next group! This class of 2020 will be my 5th team and I am so excited to say that the experience has improved every year because I am ALWAYS striving to be better! Year number 5 is going to be amazing! But every year has been pretty great, and I have had the opportunity to connect with some really amazing young ladies. Nearly 50 girls that I still have contact with on social media ... that I am getting to watch go on to college and get their life started and hope that I played a small roll somewhere along the way. My team isn't about who's the most popular or the prettiest on the outside. I strive to show my girls inner beauty, and help them connect with girls they never would have known, but also to help them feel confident and gorgeous in their photos. I hope that every girl I've ever had on my team, and for that matter, the girls I have photographed who have not been on my team, know that they can come to me anytime for anything! In times where so many kids are taking their own lives and struggling to figure out where or how they fit in, it's important to know that there is someone out there who cares. I care! I'm always a text away, day or night. Don't ever hesitate to reach out.

I didn't set out to write about this, I was just going to show you one of my model's full gallery after her year of participating in every shoot she was able to ... but I started typing and that's what came out, so if you needed that, I hope you found this blog and that you either reach out and join this year's team, or just reach out in general. If you'd like to apply for my class of 2020 team just go to http://www.shawnamariephotography.com/forms/view.php?id=14  and fill out the form!

And now, I still want to show you one of my model's full galleries! I chose Katlyn's because not only did she participate in every single shoot that she could, her own personal shoot was very diverse as she is one busy girl and involved in a LOT!  I think her photos really speak for her personality <3  To see them all go to https://shawnamariephotography.shootproof.com/gallery/Katlyn  all you have to do to enter is type in your email address :)

Here are a couple of my faves from her shoots as well
