Experience your portrait session, stress-free.

Before every booking, I set up a phone call with you to make sure I am the right photographer for you. By the end of our phone call, I want you to feel confident in choosing me to be your family photographer, maternity, newborn, or senior photographer. From planning your perfect family pictures or maternity session, to knowing what to wear, and visualizing your perfect artwork for your home, I am here to help you through it all. 

When I am your photographer, I take out the guessing work. When you step in front of my camera you will feel confident in posing, feel gorgeous in styling, and relaxed as you experience your dream portrait session.

Find Out How It's Done

"She not only made my kids feel comfortable, she made me feel beautiful! My kids had there for real smiles. Even my husband had his handsome smile that we don’t see often. The experience was amazing!" 



My name is Brielle Pausma and I am your Northwest Indiana Family photographer specializing in family, kids, and maternity portraits. My studio is in Munster Indiana, but if outside photos are more your style I have several favorite locations around Munster, Schererville, and Griffith Indiana and a few spots in the Chicagoland area. I am confident in capturing beautiful and exciting moments that show the essence of your family so much, so you want to put them on your wall.

Being a mom of three little boys, I know how bittersweet these moments are as your babies grow older each and every day. Let me help you take a pause and document how beautiful this time is for you.
