The Kemp Family

Welcome!

I’ve held a DSLR camera in my hand for 9 years and have been an official business owner for nearly 4 years. I’ve learned more and more with every year that has passed, but have always doubted myself. It’s taken a lot of work to get to where I am, but I’m finally feeling like things have come full circle. So here I am, completely confident in my work and my ability to deliver the sharp, light and airy images that define my style.

I am so thankful to have met the Kemp’s. They are such a beautiful family that completely embodied my vision. When you picture family, they are what comes to mind: loving, humble, kind and fun. SO much fun! Their children (ages 4, 5 and 6) were child model material, seriously. Megan did a fantastic job styling this session. I am so happy with the final collection. I hope you enjoy!

Jacqueline + Miguel + Baby

Jacqueline and Miguel wanted to announce to the world that they would be expecting a baby, and also what that little baby would be. The cool part was that I got to photograph them finding out what their baby would be too! I will always treasure this moment I shared with them. Just look at the joy on their faces!

Becoming parents is quite possibly the most unifying and gratifying experience a couple goes through. I know that Jacqueline and Miguel are going to be amazing parents. This sweet baby girl, Olivia Rene, will bring so much joy and love to this new party of three! Congratulations!

11 Months + 11 Months = 11 Months

You read that right! I’m writing this at 11pm and I am cracking myself up. My guilty pleasure is dad jokes and I can’t help myself. Sharing a little bit about me makes me feel more human and I thought you’d like to know that behind the pretty pictures and thoughtful captions is a mom who is tired and hysterically laughing because what else is there to do?!

Moving on to the pretty pictures. The Fallin twins are special boys. I say that not only because there are two of them, but because each one is unique. Not just in personality, but in the way they are fearfully and wonderfully made. Angella, the professional mom raising these handsome boys, beamed with pride our entire session. (I mean, how could you not?) I loved working as a team to laugh, sing and make the craziest faces to get these sweet photos. I promised her she would love them and I am so happy that she did. The families I shoot are so special to me and I am extremely thankful for these Fallin boys!

Blakely

This session featured a very special (and gorgeous) birthday girl, Blakely. She celebrated 7 years of living with a photoshoot that solely focused on her. Blakely is one of five siblings, which led me to believe that she would be shy when it came to being alone in front of the camera. I could not have been more wrong.

It seems that we discovered some kind of  super talent hidden in the sweetest seven year old. I usually spend a little extra time with the kids I shoot before we start. I get to know them, laugh with them, and gain their trust before we even start shooting. (I find this is important to do since I’m going to be sticking a camera in their face for an hour). I suggest poses as we go, and get great shots after they warm up. Blakely needed no suggestions, she needed no warming up.

She. Was. Incredible. I enjoyed every second of our session and getting to see the girl who’s kindness reaches far past her family of seven. Happy Birthday, Blakely!

I’ll be sharing a really exciting life update soon.

Mila turns two!

Last year around this time, I wrote a blog post reflecting the joy that I felt that my business had turned two. If you follow me anywhere on social media, you know that since then we have added another sweet baby to our family! Pregnancy, sick babies, full days, late nights and much more have led to one busy and tired mama! I’ve hardly had the energy to sit down and blog about my sessions, or fold that pile of laundry – fellow moms, you know. Instead of sitting here one year later discouraged, I’m filled with unbelievable joy! Even though I haven’t put 100% into my business, I have given 100% to my kids, and that is something I will never regret. Today, on the sweetest of days, we celebrate my daughter, Mila.

Mila turns two today and I’m amazed at how much she’s grown. She has taught me so much about life, and myself. I see so much of me in her, and my mind runs wild with all my hopes for her future. So to my sweet girl, may you always know that you are loved more than you can imagine. Guard your heart above all else, and never let anyone convince you that you are weak because of your tender heart. Never lose that caring spirit. Fight for what you want in life. Dream big.

Happy birthday, Mila!
