Indianapolis mini sessions announced | marci yochum photography | Indianapolis child photographer

Wow, has it really been that long since my last post?  Well, to say I’ve been a little busy would be an understatement!  Moving to Indiana, living in an apartment for 8 months while building our new home, adjusting the kids to the moving (not once but twice), packing all our things in storage as if we would be in an apartment for only 6 weeks (not my best idea), was more challenging than expected, not to mention some new challenges we faced with school and the building of our home.  In spite of all of that we are happy to be back in Indiana surrounded by family, meeting new friends and neighbors and loving our life (although crazy at times).

After being in business for seven years, I am once again starting my business over in a new market.  I am looking forward to beginning again.

So with that being said.  Fall is family photo time!   This will be my first holiday season since moving back to Indiana. As an introductory offer, I am including a set of 25 custom holiday cards with each session completed during the month of October.

I am also announcing my limited edition holiday mini sessions.  See details below:

the shore | marci yochum photography | Indianapolis child photographer

It’s been a while since my last post but I am still here.  Well actually, I am not in here as in New Jersey anymore but have made our move to Indiana.  Yesterday was almost 70 degrees in Indiana and today it’s 35 and snowing!!  Makes me want to curl up on the couch and just watch it snow.  However, I am finally unpacking today and getting caught up on all the editing this time of year brings.  The weather yesterday so reminded me of being at the shore with the warm yet breezy air.  Thinking of New Jersey today and wishing everyone a speedy recovery.

This little family session was photographed at the Jersey shore this past September.  During our session planning, Mom mentioned that this little 4 year old loved “Jake and the Neverland Pirates” so I decided to style their session with a little pirate theme.  We had tons of fun scouting ships on the horizon, looking for buried treasure and waving our white flag!

big news | marci yochum photography | indianapolis family photographer

Well it’s official.  Marci Yochum Photography is moving!

I will be relocating to Indianapolis, Indiana later this fall with my husband’s company.  It didn’t exactly hit me until I heard someone actually say it.  When I told them we were moving they said, “oh, so you are going “home”.   Home…yes we are …going home!  My husband and I both grew up in the Indianapolis area and have not been back in 12 years.  This will be the first time that we will even live in the same state as our families.  Now having said that it is a also bittersweet opportunity for us.  I am very excited to be able to live closer to my family and have my children grow up with their cousins and grandparents in their lives, it is also never easy to say goodbye and make such a big change.

I have met some wonderful people and have enjoyed photographing and getting to know my client’s families over the past 3 1/2 years. It is such a joy to get to see them each year as I do with most of my clients and to watch how their family has grown. Not to mention New Jersey is a photographer’s playground! I will miss the rolling hills, the rustic barns, horse farms, antiques, NYC, the beach and the beautiful landscape that NJ has to offer. I will miss my clients too.

I will be offering sessions through October 28th. In effort to squeeze all my clients in this fall I am also offering “anytime mini sessions”. In the past, my fall mini sessions were offered on a given day and time at a specific location chosen by me. This year you pick the day and location that works best for your family. Together we will create and style a session that is unique to your family. If you are interested in a full session, mini session or beach session please call me for details and to reserve your day.

Oh and because I can’t post without a picture here is one of my daughter that I took at my school playground on a recent trip back to Indiana.

beach | marci yochum photography | new jersey beach photographer

I was first contacted by the children in this family over a 1 1/2 years ago!  They wanted to purchase a family session as gift for their Mom for the holidays. Love that! This was something a little different for me aside from shooting high school seniors I don’t have a lot of families with older siblings. Well with Sam away at aeronautical school trying to coordinate schedules on his limited breaks became a little bit of a challenge. Finally we were able to squeeze in their session on his last break home. Mom decided that she would like to have a session on the beach, something that was special to her family and a place they all love. I was commissioned to create black and white images for a wall gallery in her home. She wanted a session to remember her children before they were grown and out of the house soon and perhaps starting their own families.  I know she  will treasure these forever.

I just couldn’t resist doing a little animation with the last series of images. Be sure to scroll down and check it out at the end too!




Here is a the design with the  images chosen for her wall gallery to be displayed going up the stairs in her home.  Can’t wait to see them hanging!


And a little animation….

“Go confidently in the direction of your dreams. Live the life you have imagined.”  ~Henry David Thoreau

I love shooting high school senior girls!  Since moving to New Jersey I haven’t had the opportunity to do as many as I would have liked because the senior market is very different here.  So when I got a phone call from Danielle’s Mom needing some last minute senior portraits before Danielle graduated and the family moved to Georgia, I jumped at the chance.  Not only does Danielle have a natural beauty about her she also has a sweet and easy going personality.  For her senior session she wanted to create a simple more timeless look and still capture her personality.  A big thanks to her Mom for scouting out this killer location with urban and country backdrops.  Love it!  Congratulations Danielle!

    Roy - Hi Marci,
    Great natural looking senior portraits. The 3 black and whites look awesome side by side!
