We are on the road again with my husband - I came across this image on my phone from a past road adventure and thought it would be a perfect share. Oh how we love road trips!!! Happy Friday all.

I just love it when I get to snuggle and hold brand new babies!! Having two of my own that are well into being "big boys and girls" it is always a special treat for me to photograph someone so new to this world. It takes me back to precious memories of the early days and weeks of parenthood reminding me to slow down and really be present in the everyday because it all passes by in a hurried blur. The time I spent with sweet Mr T was just perfect. The newest addition to his already family of four, and the most laid back- super chill little guy I have met, was a dream to work with. Thanks mom and dad for letting me spend the afternoon with you! Congratulations on your sweet baby boy! He is a doll.

It has been ages since I last blogged a session and I have found that I am climbing out from under a mountain of back logged sessions and images. Sick kids and the high school senior season will do that...never the less, I have been dying to share the following session I had weeks ago! Home from school and up way too early on their first day off, the handsome M family did a fantastic job working it for my camera. I enjoyed the time we spent together and equally love the images that we created!! The last image, albeit serious- is my favorite-hands down. Love the J.Crew feel. I like it more and more each time I look at it! Can I get a collective - rawr?!
Thanks you guys! It was so fun. -K

Filled with a natural curiosity of the world around them and an abundance of energy- the kind grown ups long for, Misters E & J jumped, ran, and dug their way through their time with me. I love when I get to play right along side the cuties I photograph. Both of these handsome young men are hilarious and totally comfortable in front of the camera.
Can't you just see this little guy years from now, and handsome as ever, melting all the little girls hearts! Look at that sweet face. And his big bro...
Along with Mr. E's natural swagger in the black and white below, the mustache totally makes this image! Watch out mom, you have a couple of heart breakers on your hands!!
I just couldn't resist posting the last two images. Between shots there was a lot of playing and walking. Lots. of. walking. The black and white below is of Mr. E as he was trying to high step it out of the yucky oak pollen. Somewhere along the way it all became too much. I love this image for numerous reasons like his expression, the details, but most of all the way it reminds me of being a parent. Watching and walking in quiet support from the sidelines until encouragement is needed -reaching in to comfort and help carry the load.
Then there is this image that stirs up delicious memories of being a kid and exploring the great big world.
Thanks for a great evening B Family. You all are amazing- it was a true pleasure.
