My Family Friday...

** Quick BIZ UPDATE : I'm now booked for the 2009 year. I will only be taking bookings for the 2010 year! **

Happy Black Friday! For those of you that are big shoppers, I'm sure this was a busy day for you. However, a big shopper, I am not. The crowds stress me out... and all the madness makes me want to sit down someplace quiet and rock back and forth.

So. I am here.

I wanted to share a few pics of my Thanksgiving Day with you.

My husband's family is all boy. Four brothers...Three of which had 2 sons each... and now we have 2 boys... A family get together at Great Nanny's (my husband's grandmother) is a total hoot. Toys galore (of the kid and big-kid variety) for everyone to play with... it's great.

Our littlest one wasn't feeling so well and was therefore a total pain in the rear-end... but after a nice dose of Motrin he felt much better... and allowed a few people to hold him... for a millisecond.

So Happy Thanksgiving Day to you all. I hope you all had a day as good as mine!

Until next time,

~ K

It's a little early, but we'll be driving to spend the day with family tomorrow and I wanted to be sure to get this in.

I have SO much to be thankful for.

* My beautiful boys... who can always make me smile and are truly the light of my life...
* My husband who is so supportive and puts up with my madness...
* My sister who is more amazing than she'll ever know...
* My parents for teaching me...
* My friends for just BEING with me & understanding me & laughing with me...
* My in-laws who raised the cutest little boy into a wonderful man...
* The military for providing a roof over our heads and putting food on our table, exposing us to new places every few years, and for providing us with friends, quite literally, all over the world (8 countries at last count I think...).
* My camera. Aside from my family, it's my life.
* and... my clients... who trust me to capture their family memories. My clients over the past year have been gracious, patient, honest, caring, and open as I've worked so hard to build this business. I am SO thankful for ALL of you.

This is everything that is autumn and thanksgiving to me. The smell of autumn... leaves burning in the distance, that moist almost musky smell of wet leaves against the cool air in the morning.... I miss fall up north. But I'm happy to be where we are now.

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you.

Until next time,

~ K

Photographers Need Family Photos too... | Hampton Family Photography

We are always behind the camera... taking pics of our own kids & other people's kids... but rarely do WE ever get in FRONT of the camera.

Sometimes we might try to hand off the camera to our significant other... and then talk them through the proper settings... and then look at the picture... and * oh gee, imagine that * it's blurry and, gah, there's only half my face in the frame!

Yes... I mean... Nooo honey, I am not talking about you... { smile }

So when Anne contacted me to do a family photo swap... I jumped at the chance.

Plus, though it's a bit nerve wracking photographing another photographer, it's nice having someone else knowing which way to turn and where to find the good light :)

Here you go Anne!

I kept getting them to yell, "Daddy's got stinky feet!!" Over and over and over again... as I perfected the shot. "Mommy's got stinky feet!" "Daddy's got stinky feet!" "YOU have stinky feet!" Hahaha.

And then...

...yeah... and then they go sick of me... {sigh}. Not to self: do NOT wear out the 'stinky feet' ploy...

I really wanted to get some good shots of Anne with the kids... that's what we don't always get... Well, without a whole lot of trouble anyway (self-timers, remote triggers, lots of running back & forth...)

Anne, your children are so sweet and very photogenic!!

But... I think this image is my favorite...

Until next time,
