Hector... Micayla | Yorktown Portrait Photography

I had so much fun this morning, out in historic Yorktown, hanging out with these two troopers. We arrived at our location around 8:30 this morning and the sun was shining, there was a slight breeze, and we couldn't have been happier. But as the time passed and we moved from location to location, the chill set in... the breeze turned into an all out howling wind... and the cold... oh man the cold... I could barely feel my fingers by the end of our session.

But looking at the images on my computer tonight, you could never tell... these two were absolute troopers. Both are naturally photogenic and seemed so at ease in front of the camera straight-away.

We had a fantastic time!

And a huge thank-you to Erin for coming out and playing too. Photography is such a joy for me... and when I get to shoot with other photographers who share my absolute passion for portraiture and people, it makes it just that much better. Thanks girl, I had a blast :)

Okay. Enough rambling... here are a few.

I had a VERY hard time narrowing down the pics...

Moms... keep an eye on my Facebook page, I'll post more there in the days to come!


Hector. An athletic teen who is a phenomenal baseball player.


Micayla. Another athletic teen who is a phenomenal field hockey player!


Oh wait... and she's gorgeous!


Oh wait... and HE's gorgeous!


And, Erin, hard at work!













We really did have a fantastic time... and I could have kept them out there ALL day. They were that cooperative and beautiful and fun!

Thanks to all who drove, watched kids, and helped all around.

Until next time,

Three Things...

**Thing #1**

I absolutely love when customers send me photos of how they've displayed their images. Check THIS one out!



Wow. Just gorgeous! If you have a picture of your display, send them to me!! I'd love to show them off :)

The next two are pics from our walk over at the Mariner's Museum Park. It was a pretty day and the boys needed to run and cavort and be boys!

Happy Valentine's Day! (a little late...)

I hope your V-Day was relaxing and warm and filled with the people you love...

Mine certainly was!


Here's my gifts from my boys... flowers and a pedi and massage. I can't WAIT!!!!

And, for fun this year, we made special cards for Trey to give out to his class...





But my favorite part of valentine's day this year... was nothing different than any other day... I loved watching my boys play...



Noah sees this picture and says, "Trey... loove..." He loves it when his brother gives him love :)

Happy Valentine's Day!

Until next time,

Unbelievable...

I made an investment last week... an investment in my business...

I bought a new camera! I've been using the same camera since 2005. It was, and still is, a workhorse. I learned everything I know about photography on that beginner's camera and it served me well. But after five years, it was time to upgrade... I eeked every ounce of ISO, shutter speed... you name it out of that thing...

And now, now I've got an amazing piece of photographic machinery. It's an amazing camera.

Here are a few samples for you.

This was shot at ISO 6400. Did you hear me?! 6400!!!


And this is pretty much SOOC except for re-sizing and a little web sharpening.

The rest of these were shot at ISO 2500 with my 85 1.8.


This is Trey showing us his AMAZING report card! It's full of S's and O's (Satisfactory and Outstanding). We are so proud of him!

We went out to eat and then got the boys some ice cream... Noah was covered in ice cream by the time we made it home, so he was required to finish in the kitchen... :)





I am in heaven playing with this thing... and I can't wait to get YOU in front of my new camera.

Until next time,

~ K

Snow | Hampton Roads Children's Photographer

The snow fell just after midnight Saturday morning and covered the ground with a beautiful layer of fluffy whiteness. The boys, who had been hearing about possible snowfall all week, were thrilled when they woke up to a winter wonderland. We tried heading out Saturday afternoon to play, but the wind was blowing and the gentle snowfall had turned into sleet which was pelting us in the face... it was painful. We lasted about five minutes and then everyone quickly made their way back inside.

But Sunday rolled around and it was perfect. Sunny. Still cold, but certainly bearable.

A solitary moment...


This picture reminds me of my childhood. I grew up in Minnesota where snow was just a part of life all through the winter. Our parents bundled us up and sent us packing to play outside as long as it wasn't 20 below.

The pink cheeks, the wet face (remnants of a snowball fight or falling face first into a big drift of snow...), a runny snotty nose, and a smile. This is youth up north in the winter... I love that Trey was able to experience a little of that...even if it was only for a short period of time.
