Foley Family // Hudson WI Mini Session

With the busy wedding season I had this year, October crept up on me before I was ready for it. I have done mini sessions for the past few years, and just about let them pass this year unintentionally. Thankfully this family reminded me and we met at Weitkamp park in Hudson, WI on a chilly morning to capture some family photos. The two boys are so energetic and full of life and laughter. It was so fun working with all of them and capturing the sweetest smiles against the beautiful fall colors.

Belisle Family // Stillwater Boom Site

There is so much love for this sweet family of four. I have had to opportunity to work with them three times now and have been blessed by them every time. I first met the Belisle family two years ago when their son turned one, then again in this June on the day their daughter was born. Then I got to see them all again four months later to capture some updated family photos. We met at the Boom Site in Stillwater, MN and had a great time wandering the woods along the St. Croix River. It has been a true joy to watch and document this family grow throughout the years.

Miller Birth Day // Lakeview Hospital, Stillwater, MN

Hours old and cute as a button. This precious baby girl came a few days earlier than expected, but mom and baby are doing great! I met this beautiful family of four in the newly remodeled birth center at Lakeview Hospital in Stillwater, MN. I had the privileged of capturing the siblings meeting for the first time and let me tell you, it was a beautiful. It’s times like this that can never be recreated. Moments that can steal your heart.

Congratulations Miller family! Thank you for letting me be a small part in such a big day for your family!

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.

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.

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.


J&J (Maternity Photography)

I have known Jeri for about 6 years now. We met the same summer she met her husband, Justin. In the six years we’ve known each other, we’ve both graduated from college, transferred jobs, and have moved about 9 times total between the two of us. Jeri and Justin got married and I was a bridesmaid in the wedding. I got married, and Jeri was a bridesmaid for me. Now, Jeri is expecting her first son by the end of May! I could not be more excited for Jeri and Justin. They will be wonderful parents. I had the amazing privileged of taking some maternity photos for them this last Friday. It was a blast. Jeri and Justin are the cutest couple and I love watching how they interact with each other. They just glow with love, joy and respect. Their son will be a very blessed little man.


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!


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.


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
