Hi there! I'm Maike [like mike-ah; it's German and my parents were hippies]. I'm based out of Indianapolis, Indiana [I LOVE Indy! I’ve lived in a handful of different places and Indy tops my list; I'm so glad to be here]. I have degrees in Design Art and Art History from Drury University. I've been photographing professionally since 2006 and started M.Rinaye in 2010. I love Jesus, making my kiddos laugh, dressing up fancy for a night out, and eating ranch dressing on pretty much anything. I'm continually learning how to love others well which includes being LGBTQ+ friendly.

If you think we’d be a good match for your upcoming Indy wedding, or for some beautiful family portraits, newborn portraits, or head shots, I’d love to chat! Send me an e-mail when you’re ready to get together and talk or when you’re ready to book your portrait session [ohsnap@mrinaye.com].


“I tell you, the more I think, the more I feel that there is nothing more truly artistic than to love people.”
