Fall Mini Sessions // Birkmose Park Hudson WI

It’s hard to believe, but it’s that time of year again! Fall mini sessions will be offered this year on Saturday October 10, 2015 at Birkmose Park in Hudson, WI. I’ve added 10 extra minutes to the session length from last year and kept the 5 digital images (with print release!) and 10% off prints and products the same. These sessions are a great and easy opportunity to capture images for your holiday cards, to give as gifts during the holiday season or simply to finally get an updated family portrait that you’ve been putting off for a few years now. All families, couples and even high school seniors are welcomed. Sessions will be booked during the morning and late afternoon hours on October 10th. Contact Kelly with morning or afternoon preference to figure out time slots available. Contact me today with any questions or to reserve your spot. Times fill up quickly so don’t delay.

The $99 (+tax) session fee will be due at the time of the session. Rescheduling due to rain will be figured out on a one to one basis with Kelly.


Austad Family

Two big milestones at once! Ailee is now 6 months, sitting up on her own and is full of smiles! Jude turned 3 and this year we photographed him with a few of his favorite things, trucks, his teddy bears and books! How can they be so big already? These little ones are growing up just way too quickly. However, they do continue to get cuter with age so I guess there is nothing wrong with that.  We topped off the session with a quick and beautiful family portrait.

Ailee // Newborn Photography

This post is late, since little Ailee is almost 4 months old now, but the images were too cute to not share. If her eyes are closed in any of the photos, they are deceiving, this little beauty did not sleep more than a wink during the entire session, but she wasn’t fussy either, so it turned out well. I will post her 3 month photos soon, so stay tuned!

Belisle Family Portraits // Hudson WI Family Photography

A little over a month ago I met the Belisle family at Willow River State Park and had the perfect fall afternoon with beautiful fall colors. We did a mix of family photos and first birthday pictures. What an adorable family and can the little guy get any more cute?! Seriously? My word. Makes your heart melt. Thanks for letting me capture this milestone in your family, I had a blast working with the three of you!

Jude 2 Years // Children Photography

My favorite little man, Jude, is now two years old! See how much he has grown in the last year from his one year birthday photos. Jude now has so much personality and is talking more and more each day. It is so much fun to watch him grow up. His mom planned the perfect boy photo shoot – tractors, dirt and farm animals. Can it get any cuter than that? Seriously. Adorable. Happy birthday Jude!

Jude Parks // One Year

Jude is ONE! It’s so hard to believe – it feels like just yesterday I met him and held him in my arms. How can he be growing up so fast already? If you missed it, check out Jude’s newborn, 3 months, 6 months and 9 months. For one year, we had a quick family session in the backyard, then celebrated with a smash the cake session. It was hilarious! Jude is a curious little boy so watching his reaction the the feel and the taste of frosting for the first time was great! Happy birthday to you Jude. You are so very loved.

If you or someone you know is interested in photographing your baby’s first year, please contact me for more information!


Jude Parks // 9 Months

My favorite little man is now 9 months old! If you missed it, check out his 3 months and 6 months to see how much he has grown. Jude is now standing and walking around when holding onto furniture. With Easter just around the corner now, we celebrated a little early with Jude rockin’ his cute Easter outfit.  Jude’s hair has also grown in dark and handsome! How can you not fall in love with the mohawk he has going?! Adorable!

Stay turned for Jude’s first birthday coming up in May!

Jude Parks // 6 Months

Jude is now 6 months old, and as expected he’s still adorable! Jude is proudly sitting up on his own now and will be crawling soon I’m sure. It was apparent, by the lack of his normal heart melting smiles, that Jude was not feeling very well. He did perform for the camera for longer than we thought, but Jude made it obvious when he was done with our tricks, games and attempts at trying to make him smile.


Holiday Mini Sessions


Jude (3 Month Old Photography)

Jude was super adorable for his newborn session, and he just keeps getting cuter! Jude is now 3 months old so we went to a park for a little play date. It was awesome. Cannot wait to see the cuteness that 6 months will bring.

 


Winston Robert (Newborn Photography)

Welcome baby Winston! Born 3+ weeks early, this boy is healthy and doing great. The last time I saw the Arnold family, I was photographing their first born son Clarence around his first birthday Now, less than a year later, they have two beautiful boys. I also had the privilege of taking a few of Clarence’s newborn photos, and honestly, I don’t think the two boys look much alike; at least not yet anyways. We’ll have to wait and see.

Winston likes to have his hands up by his face, or as mom calls it his “touchdown” pose. It always amazes me how babies so little can have such a personality and have their own signature traits or moves so early on in life. I hope the very best for this family and cannot wait to keep photographing the boys as they grow.


Welcome Jude. (Newborn Photography)

Meet Jude Parks. Almost one month old already. He was born on May 26th, weighing 8 lbs, 8 oz and 21 3/4 inches long. The day he was born, I developed this nasty cold. One that kept me up at night and feeling miserable all day. I was not allowed anywhere near Jude for two weeks. It was a long waiting period while I rested and tried to feel better. Finally, I was able to meet Jude and take his photographs. He is such a cute little peanut and for the time I spent with him, really cooperative. He’s a natural in front of the camera, just like his mom and dad.


Miss Woodbury

This is the first year that Kennedy is participating in the Miss Woodbury program which is apart of the Woodbury Days Festival coming up in August. She needed a photo to submit with her application, so we met up on Friday for a quick mini-session. Isn’t she BEAUTIFUL?! She’s got the personality to match as well.  If you’re in the area on August 27th, stop by King of Kings Lutheran Church in Woodbury at 7pm to support Kennedy and the other contestants. Good luck and have fun Kennedy!

Top 11 of 2011

Looking back on the year 2011, I have many things to be thankful for and proud of. I have learned a lot, personally and professionally. I got married, moved and still continued to run a successful photography business. I could not have done it without the support of my friends, family and all the wonderful people I have met along the way. Here is a list of my top 11 experiences from 2011.

11) Continued health & safety; for myself, friends and family.

10) Having the opportunity to DEVOTE MORE TIME to my business and explore new possibilities.

9) Having an article about Kelly K Photo published in a local paper.

8) Photographing some of my CLOSE FRIENDS and their expanding families.

7) Having the opportunity to EXPERIMENT with a new style of photography -product photography- with Fleurish. Not as easy as it looks!

6) Working with the wonderful staff and volunteers of St. John’s Church for the second year in a row.

5) Having the opportunity to work with OTHER PHOTOGRAPHERS in a studio and photograph hundreds of kids and families.

4) Spending a lot of time with FAMILY & FRIENDS (at the cabin, with the new in-laws, old friends from out of town and new friends in town).

3) Photographing SENIORS; working with young men and women and telling their unique stories and personalities through photos.

2) Photographing WEDDINGS; sharing special days with special people.

1) MARRIAGE; the wedding was good, but the marriage is great!

THANKS to everyone who has helped make 2011 such a successful year! I look forward to more fun and adventures with you in 2012! ~Kelly


In the News!

While being in contact with the local paper for advertising reasons, they decided to do a business article about Kelly K Photo. About a week and a half ago, I went in for an interview and yesterday it came out in print! It feels so crazy to see my face printed on newspaper (thanks to my wonderful husband for taking the photograph!), and have a large article about what I do and everything I have worked for. If you want to read the whole article easier than these photos display, here is the link to the online article.


Jonathan (Children’s Photography)

I met up with Jonathan and his mom Jennifer earlier this week to do his annual birthday shots. We met when Jonathan was 2 and now he’s about to turn 5. He’s grown so much but still the same silly kid with a great smile and eyes that make you melt. Jennifer picked out some awesome outfits for him this year. I had a blast and I think this was our best session yet.


Clarence (Children’s Photography)

Clarence is turning ONE soon, and let me tell you, Clarence has the most addictive laugh babies can have. Every time he laughs, you end up laughing too. His parents and I went to a near by park where we just let him play. It ended up being his second time in a swing and he loves it! He climbed the slide, got dirty and wore himself out. Don’t you wish we could all be kids again?! Happy birthday Clarence!


K & J (Children’s Portraits)

On a recent trip back to La Crosse, visiting some good friends of mine, I couldn’t help but photograph these two adorable girls again. As the brats were grilling and the corn was cooking, I captured a few shots of the girls, and a few family ones as well. Once again, mom picked out some really great outfits (they were her and her sisters from when they were young.) Too cute. Seriously. Hard not to love them.


Merry Christmas


Clarence [Newborn Photography]

Clarence was brought into this world on September 21, 2010 by the proud parents Liz and Steve! Clarence takes after his mother by being long and skinny :) He’s only 7 weeks old when I photographed him in my makeshift studio in my living room. For the time that I got to spend with him, he’s a quiet, cute, curious, sleepy and very hungry little boy. Here are some of my favorite images from the session.

Clarence and daddy’s hand…

Look at those big blue eyes!!


Posada [Children Portraits]

Ok, as I’ve said before, I’m slow. But that’s going to change now! Before, my home computer would never let me access the inside pages for my blog. So the only way I could create a new post was to put everything on a jump drive and pack up a laptop and bring it to a coffee shop. Believe me, I enjoy good coffee and coffee shops, but it was kind of a drag to have that be the only way I could post. Recently, a very good friend of mine, ( ;) )Phil, who is a genius in pretty much all things (and owner of Bicycle Recycled, check out his shop on Etsy: http://www.etsy.com/shop/bicyclerecycled) helped me fix my home internet network, which was the problem for why I couldn’t access my blog. Now, I can update my blog in a more timely fashion.

With that being said, here is the last post that will be old. I had the write up and the pictures ready to go for quite some time now, just hadn’t made it to a coffee shop to mooch off their internet….

70 degrees in October. Perfect! On this BEAUTIFUL Saturday afternoon, I spent an hour or so with the Posada family at their home capturing the three kids being kids. We spent awhile playing in the leafs and on the swing set in the backyard. These siblings were so fun to play with. Couldn’t have asked for a better way to spend part of an afternoon!


Hoffmans [Family Portraits]

I admit. I am slow. These photos were taken back in August when I lived in La Crosse. Look at the weather. It was beautiful then. Not anymore. Anyways, this family is a blast. It was honestly, actually kind of by fluke that the whole family  was even in town when I went over to their river house to photograph some of their family. Grandma and Grandpa, 4 kids, 2 spouses and 4 grand kids! :)
This family is normally spread out through out Wisconsin and one family in the Twin Cities. But for the day, I was welcomed into their family to have fun and capture the Hoffman’s in their beautiful summer skin.

Hans and Luke with their dad.

Thomas, who is a little ham. Not very smiley, but adorable non the less.

Kaarina and Julianna again! :)

Grandma and Grandpa with the grandkids!

The gangs all here.

Family.

Mom and dad.

The newest addition to the family.

Possibly, eventually the next addition to the family… ;)

Special thanks to this family for inviting me into their home and
into your lives. God Bless.


Mitchell [Freshman Photos]

Mitchell loves being in front of the camera and loves his guitar(s). He was watching me photograph his older brother Colin and was getting a little jealous, so I had to cave and take some photos of him as well. It is hard not to want to photograph someone who is so willing to be photographed! He is a natural and really knows how to play it up for the camera. We got a lot with his guitar as he hopes to be starting a band soon.

Check it out! Mitchell’s got a guitar with his name on it. It’s like the two of them we’re meant to be together. ;)
