“As I sit here with a 37 weeks + 3 days baby belly, it’s so fun looking back through sessions I’ve done with little ones! Watching my clients interact with their kids makes me so excited to get to know our baby, play with them, care for them, and show them the world. I’ve been friends with Heaven & Russell for quite some time (just about 20 years knowing Heaven!), and it has been such an honor to get to know their daughter Phoebe and capture the first year of her life! …”

“I was dreading being in pictures from the photoshoot for our daughter’s first birthday because I’m not usually comfortable getting my picture taken. By the end of the photoshoot I was so glad I decided to have my husband and me in pictures. It was so much fun to play with our daughter and have candid photos taken, and when it was time to pose I felt so comfortable because of Kelly’s direction and laid back personality. I can’t wait to have more pictures taken by her in the future!” – Alison

“Kelly is an amazing photographer who was both patient with my toddlers as well as talented – capturing so many of their personality traits thru her lens. It was a pleasure to work with her from start to finish and we look forward to working with her in the future!!” – Alicia

Earlier this year I got to capture some portraits of a fun & sweet boy and his family as he was about to celebrate his first communion – meet Hunter! … We met at their church, the Catholic Community of St. Thomas More, and I was so thankful to see allll the beautiful natural light that their sanctuary has! I also love how little time it took for Hunter’s fun personality to start shining through. 🙂 Gotta have some funny faces mixed in with the serious ones for Mom!

“Isaac was turning two years old a few weeks after the session, so we were able to capture some fun photos to have on display at his train-themed birthday party! They ordered a gallery image of the next photo… You can see the completed gallery image at the bottom of the post!”

As soon as we got to the park area, Beau was ALL ABOUT those fall leaves. It was Clark’s idea to get Beau to play with them, and man-oh-man was that genius. Look how HAPPY this two-year-old is!! … While more mild-mannered in the energy department (for now, at least), Zoe had her time in the spotlight too, of course! Isn’t her squinty smile the sweetest?!

“It’s hard to believe that, just a month before the snow, a few beautiful families and I were spending a beautiful autumn morning together at Historic Oak View County Park to capture some memories. It was a bit chilly that day, but the sun warmed us up! Today I’m sharing Ashley & Matt’s fun family with you!”

“Today I want to share some precious photos from another one of my November mini-sessions. Get this: Jessica came 3 HOURS down from VIRGINIA for this 20-minute session! WHAT?! Now that is dedication to her family photographer. <3 …”

“Whoever you are and wherever you are, I hope you had a happy Thanksgiving last week! The year just won’t slow down, so I’m trying to carve a few moments here and there to think about what I’m grateful for and intentionally give thanks. I use that and photography to cherish the present moment before it’s gone!”

“The biggest difference between the albums and photo books is the quality of the pages. While the photo book’s pages have pretty amazing quality already, albums step it up a notch with extra thick pages that don’t bend at all when you turn the page. Because the pages are thicker and even more sturdy, the album is solid and prominent as it sits on your coffee table or within your bookshelf! Printed on high-quality premium lustre paper, your photos have a slight sheen and their vibrant colors hold true beautifully. …”
