Who else is excited for this gorgeous weather?! It feels great to be out and shooting again…:)

And a great way to kick off the spring shooting season is with an awesome crew. I’ve known this family for years and years. I used to run around with Cristy & Michael (we lived in the same neighborhood), and to see both of them now with their little families is pretty sweet. And when the whole gang is together, it makes it even better. So there’s: Cathy & John (who started this whole gang); Cristy & David, Brady (8 yrs), Griffin (5 yrs); Michael & Amber, Juliet (2 yrs), and Addi (8.5 mos.). So glad we could make this session happen!




While I may not know where our family will be living in the next 6 months (if you missed it: see my last blog post), I do know I can at least schedule some shoots over the next 6-8 weeks. Who’s with me?! So I’m having a bit of an early spring session sale! Here are the details:

  • $350 for a 90-minute session with ME (Hi! I’m Katie!) in your own home, nearby park, or urban alleyway*
  • Available from 3/13 – 5/1
  • Digital delivery of high-res images (approx 50-70 images)
  • Limited copyright ownership of images

*within 30 miles of 46221 zip code

If you’re interested, please shoot me an email: katie@bungalowphotography.com. I’d love to meet you.:)









“When something goes wrong in your life, just yell, ‘PLOT TWIST!’ and move on.”

Not sure who really said that, but I figured it was suitable for our life at this moment.:)


At the beginning of November 2016, Brandon was laid off (along with multiple others) from his day job in Indianapolis. It came as quite a shock – and it didn’t help that I was 35 weeks pregnant and a bit emotional already. (Ugh, talk about stress!) So for the past 4 months, Brandon has been on the job hunt. And we’re considering moving out of state if the right job takes us there.

We’re excited about the possibilities – all the while, saddened to be potentially leaving our family and friends. It truly is a bittersweet situation. And with all that being said, we are not exactly able to book any photo sessions for the 2017 calendar year, as we don’t know where we’ll be in the next few months. What I may do is offer some at-home lifestyle sessions in the immediate future (like over the next 6 weeks or so)…I’m anxious to shoot…who’s in?!

We’ll be sure to keep you guys posted as to what happens – and regardless of where we end up, if we move out of state, we’ll always be coming back to Indy to visit. So we should still be able to schedule some photo sessions for our Indy families and friends here! Hopefully we’ll have some answers soon, but in the mean time, maybe send out some good vibes for us.:)

I love the pictures of Oscar and Charlie in this blog!! They are precious to us! We love you all and are anxious to see you soon!ReplyCancel

Hard to believe this all happened 3 months ago. It’s been a sweet and somewhat hectic 3 months (I’ll explain more in another blog post) – but by far the best thing was welcoming sweet Benjamin Scott into our family. He arrived on November 27, 2016 at 7:16pm weighing 8lbs, 1oz and measuring 20in long.

It was a fairly uneventful labor and delivery – he took his sweet time getting here (I kinda figured he’d be out in no time considering this wasn’t my first rodeo…). We checked into the hospital that morning at 7am, started pitocin and had my epidural by 11am, and everyone was thinking we’d have a baby by lunch time. Whelp, not so much. My contractions were a bit irregular and dilation seemed to slow at around 5-6. Soooo, after trying a few different things, we ended up sitting me as upright as possible to, as my nurses said, labor down (I didn’t do this with Oscar & Charlie, so this was new to me). That really got things rolling, and we welcomed our baby boy at 7:16pm after only having to push 3 times.:)All in all, we had a great experience. And since I was one of those patients that delivered my baby at shift change, I had a team of, like, 9 nurses in the room rooting for me and cheering me on. I was a bit too foggy/distracted to really pay attention to everyone around me, but Brandon said I kept asking how everyone else was doing and thanking them for being there. Ha! Good times.:)

I’m a bit slow in getting his newborn photos done. I was much faster at posting Oscar & Charlie’s newborn photos – but this time around I have really tried to just truly be on maternity leave. You know, and not feel guilty for taking a nap during nap time. Or reading books. Or taking the time to snuggle our little babe. Or watching the older kiddos sweetly hold his hand in between showering him with kisses. This is likely our last time bringing home a baby, so I just wanted to savor as much of it as possible.

      Thanks so much, Kirsten! :)ReplyCancel

We knew when we scheduled this newborn session that we’d be cutting it close to our own baby’s due date, but we just had to make it happen for this sweet couple. Natasha & Matt have been anxiously awaiting their sweet baby girl, and she was worth the wait.:)Sadie was so relaxed throughout the session, just a natural at this whole modeling thing. 😉 She even managed to show us all of her expressions within a matter of minutes – soooo incredibly cute.
