I first and foremost, love pasta. You probably thought I was going to say something about photography. eh. I can live with that level of disappointment. I'm located in Greenwood, Indiana. You probably have no idea where that's at, but I'm fiercely loyal to this little place I call home. Oh, and it's a suburb of Indianapolis. You should also know that traveling is my jam. I'm the only person I know who actually loves sleeping in hotels. I laugh, a lot; and loudly. If you're looking for an employee, I'm not your girl. On any given day you can find me getting tacos or coffee with a past client. My husband is my sanity. My daughter and dogs are the reason I need sanity. I rock a lot of stripes. When I'm not taking selfies with my clients, you can find me watching reruns (Scrubs, The West Wing, Parks and Rec and Psych of course), dancing, cooking with too much butter and shopping. I really really want you to print your photos and I really really love photographing awesome humans.

kind words


"I’ve had the pleasure of working with Katy on a few different occasions now. She has done our engagement, wedding, maternity, and (my favorite session yet), my son’s newborn photos. Her work speaks for itself. If you have an eye for photography, or even if you don’t, her photos stand out from other photographers. My husband said it best when he said, “I never really knew what good photography was until I saw Katy’s pictures.” But what is even better is how easy and natural our photos always look because we are laughing and having an absolute blast the whole time. Some of our best date nights have been photo sessions with Katy. She is so fun and has a way of making the session totally relaxed and allows us to just be ourselves which is so important on high stress situations like your wedding day. I am so so thankful I found such an amazing photographer to capture life’s most precious moments. My photos are the best money I’ve ever spent."

"My family has been using Katy Davis Photography to witness our most treasured memories for the past 5 years. She has such a magical ability to capture a snapshot of our lives that will warm our hearts for decades. Katy's professionalism and perfectly zaney personality make every session a dream come true (even with screaming babies and toddlers!). We love her, our kids love her and anyone who sees our pictures falls in love with her. Katy, you are our people!!"

- Brooke & Seth

"We have been using KDP for all of our photography needs for the past 12 years! She has captured every age milestone, a wedding, a birth, and numerous family sessions for my family. She’s the only photographer we use and trust. Katy has always exceeded my expectations! Even when I’ve left a photo session worried about how my kids have behaved, she always amazes me! Katy is wonderful at interacting with families/couples to get them to open up and feel comfortable during a session. Turn around time is great! Katy is truly amazing and passionate about her work. I never have to worry about her getting a good shot. I have to worry about how I could possibly narrow them down and choose a favorite! "

this is how I roll

here we go

I don't want normal.  Bring silly. I don't want stuffy. I want you to wear clothes that are comfortable. Does your 3 year old only wear princess dresses right now? Outfit chosen.  I don't want tears (although it might happen). Bring on the silly faces. In fact, everything goes much smoother if everyone just has fun. Families aren't perfect, and nothing is less authentic than forcing your kids to look at me and smile. Trust the process. Trust that we will have plenty of goofy games for your kids to play that will open them up, naturally. But that means YOU will also need to be willing to goof around to get real/true interactions.  Also, everyone should eat before the session. Or bring (non-messy) snacks. No hangry dads, please! 

Once you're ready to book, there will be a 50% non-refundable retainer (for the full sessions) due with a signed contract. Full session fee payment is required for the mini session.

here we go

Studio sessions are quite different than an outdoor session. While outside we want more color, and do welcome it in the studio; the studio is fit much more for soft, simple, neutral colors. Especially when it comes to newborns, we think the simpler the better. Simple, sweet, and timeless. Best part of studio sessions are that it isn't necessary to reschedule for weather. We book studio sessions during the week on Monday,Tuesday, or Wednesday. Most sessions will start at 10am. We do offer packages for multiple studio sessions booked at the same time! 

Once you're ready to book, there will be a 50% non-refundable retainer due with a signed contract.

what to wear


Gone are the days where you wear matching shirts and blue jeans. The most important thing is to be comfortable. Having your photos taken is already slightly uncomfortable, so add in stuffy clothes? Recipe for disaster. First consider your location and consider the weather. Wearing heels while hiking to a waterfall would be difficult. Sweaters in September, when the weather isn't quite fall yet? Everyone is sweating and someone is probably swearing. Be comfy, be colorful.

For newborn and studio sessions, we prefer neutral, light colored clothing. Leggings, sweaters, dresses, tees and jeans are the best!

The best part is, we now offer styling services for FREE! Once you're booked, we will send out more information on how to use this service. It's something we just implemented and are so excited about it! 

Thank you so much for considering me to be a part of your wedding day! If you’re interested in working with me, shoot me an email and say "Let's do this thang!"
I am so thankful I get to work with you!

thank you!
