this blog is mostly a personal peek into my thoughts, anywhere from my husband and kids, to the photography industry, client work and random musings. glad you're here. :)

About Rachel Vanoven


I have been photographing Indianapolis’ newest residents since 2008, and love every second of it. As a wife and mother myself, I recognize the desire to capture not just family portraits, but real life and the joy that surrounds happy families. And when it comes to newborns, not one session goes by where I’m not marveling over the miracle that is new life. Every part of my job feels like a blessing because I get to do what I love. Whether it be shooting my client’s first sessions, teaching a group of women, or spending an afternoon editing in her studio – I’m passionate about my work and about helping others find the same joy.
