Baby Hailey | Sneak Peek | Hampton, VA Newborn Photography

Last weekend I got to play with a sweet baby girl... little Hailey. At just over 2 weeks old, she was sweet, pretty sleepy, and oh-so babylicious! I first met Hailey when she was still in her mama's belly, you may remember that gorgeous pregnant mama from a previous post :)

I'm still knee-deep in editing... but I picked a few to share with you so you can enjoy the babyliciousness too...

This might be my favorite thus far... but I'm certainly not done yet.

Mom and Dad, I hope you enjoy these... more to come soon!

Until next time,
~ K

Jeremie's Family: A Sneak Peek! | Hampton Roads Family Photography

So... my friend Jeremie contacted me a while back to schedule a shoot for her family while they were all gathered here for her sister's nursing school graduation. I, of course, screamed like a little girl, ran around the house, told DJ about 16 times, and then... all professional-like, calmly emailed her back and was all, "Sure. I'd love to Jeremie. I can't wait to see you!" *Snort*

So, the big day was Saturday and, as per usual, the weather was supposed to be awful. Rain. Thunderstorms. More Rain.

I did what any self-respecting photographer would do. I ran to Target and bought a handful of fun colorful umbrellas... and then proceeded to become a neurotic mess checking the internet weather site, like, every five minutes... I mean, I hoped for the best.

I left the bazaar early and hiked on up the road to Williamsburg for the shoot ... with my awesome new friend and assistant, Jessica.

Here are a few... I had a hard time choosing, so there's more than usual !

This is Jeremie (on the right) with her gorgeous immediate family. I asked them to sing their favorite song... fully expecting to hear something along the lines of 'ABC's' or 'Twinkle Twinkle'... you know, something cute for the kids. Nope, Jeremie's husband belted out some awesome song and ohmigod-he-can-sing-keep-going-keep-going! Jeremie calls him the 'Karaoke King'. Poifect.

And Jeremie's two sons, 'C' and 'J'. 'C' played football with Trey back in the Oki days and little 'J' was in his mama's belly when I saw him last! Time flies folks. It flies.

This is Jeremie's gorgeous (and, uhm, OBVIOUSLY very well-educated-super-smart-and-totally-graduated) sister (Jocelyn) and her husband (Ken). There's something about this height difference that I love...that's so endearing. Or maybe that just reminds me of my best friends Dev and Lis... this picture makes me smile. I have no idea what we were talking about... actually... yes I do, but I will not embarrass all of us that way... nope. No way :)

This is 'M' a very-cool-probably-way-too-cool-for-all-this-portrait-phooey teenager. He, however, did an awesome job interacting with the kids and totally humoring me. All whilst being very cool... did I mention that?

And here's Jocelyn's little girl, 'M', in the arms of their neice, 'G'. THIS may be my favorite picture of the shoot. Ugh. It just pulls at my heart. 'G' was so awesome with the kids. SO AWESOME! Could I please employ you as a full-time babysitter?!

And, uhm, Jeremie, would it be weird if I had a ginormous picture of YOUR family in MY living room?! Seriously.

And then we had to get some total family shots! Jeremie's parents (in the middle) had come down for the graduation as well...

But... just wait...

We can't be normal! We had our umbrellas out (b/c OF COURSE it started raining on us) and then, I made everyone JUMP! ONE! TWO! THREE! JUUUUUUMP! This picture is awesometastic b/c just look at their faces! LOOOve it!

So there's your peek! More coming to your inbox soon!

A Quick Update...

Whew. It's been a busy, busy weekend! Two full days of bazaar-table manning, two shoots... and a queasy stomach throughout! I'm tired, but definitely happy! I can't wait to share some of the sneak peeks with you guys, so keep checking back.

Also, this month is almost completely booked up, so PLEASE contact me ASAP if you want to schedule a shoot before it gets hot-hot! :)

Because it's been so busy I haven't had a chance to edit and/or blog too many personal pictures. But here's a quick one. Last weekend we went to the zoo with our friend John and Whitney and it was a blast! Stupidly, I didn't bring my camera, just the point-and-shoot... I totally regret that, but we got a few okay shots :)

The elephants! We loved the elephants...

The highwire act...totally gave me stress.

My boys...

So more stuff coming soon!

Until next time,
