Jackson // Newborn Photography

I cannot get enough of this cute little family of four with adorable newborn Jackson. This family welcomed me into their home on an overcast drizzly morning just five days after Jackson made his appearance into this world. This family has beautiful hearts, smiles and (nerd alert) window light in their house (I mean, com’on! Not every house has beautiful light that allows for the entire session to look stunning in black and white). Older brother Emmett was so gentle and loving to his little brother. This family is truly precious and it was a blessing to share and document this stage in all of their lives.

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!

Austad Family // Hudson WI Maternity Photographer

This beautiful family is growing!! Today is actually the due date, but their beautiful, healthy, baby girl decided to come a few days early. I figured I should probably blog their maternity session before the newborn portraits, which I am so excited to be photographing next week! Jeri is beautiful everyday, but I told her she should have lots of kids, because pregnancy looks so good on her, she just glows, and if Jude is any indication, she has really cute kids. She told me that would not be happening, but I still think she should. I cannot wait to meet the fourth member of their family soon. Stay tuned for the newborn pictures. Happy Thanksgiving everyone.

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.

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.


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


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.


Welcome Julianna. [Childrens Photography]

I had the privileged of photographing baby Julianna Dunn the other day. It was so special to photograph Julianna, Kaarina and Kada in their new home. All three of them are beautiful girls and their hospitality was wonderful. I cannot wait to keep photographing these girls as they grow up. :D
