Studio Newborn

With KGP you have the option for the Lifestyle in-your-own-home newborn session or you may chose to come to my Keller studio (in my home) for the studio look. Here I’ll shoot simple classic newborn poses with some basic blankets, backgrounds, wraps, and baskets. KGP studio work strives to keep a simple modern feel where the baby is the star not a bunch of cheesy props. You get to decide the type of session you prefer Lifestyle or Studio.

Mom brought this handmade blanket. All of her children have been made a blanket by a family member and this little guy got his own too so we just had to use it! I had the perfect green and turquoise wrap to match.

Nolan’s In-Home Newborn Session

I’ve been noticeably behind posting dreamy sessions because my kids are home for Summer, but I’m trying to get caught back up! This family is downright special to me! I photographed their wedding so many years ago, and now all three of their angel babies through their first year. In fact, little Robby, was my first baby to use the KGP angel wings and now all three of them have photos as a KGP angel with big pretty canvases on their wall at home. I just love popping in and photographing families in the very relaxed setting of their own homes; no fancy anything is needed, just love. Nothing like that morning light and the shiny eyes of siblings to a new a baby.

I asked Dad to hand me my camera, and instead he peeped through and took a photo of me holding this precious boy! I’m pretty excited I have it actually! I usually wear this tacky black and white shirt when I shoot newborns because if they do happen to be awake, they like it and will gaze at me:)Plus, it hides the poop stains pretty well hahaha!

Christy’s Maternity Session at the Kimball

So, I met a client to deliver this incredible 7 canvas gallery in the parking lot right BEFORE Christy’s session and in the process managed to dump my entire camera bag on it’s head from my car. We are talking the most epic drop of gear hitting the pavement of my ENTIRE career!! My main camera body was completely obliterated. So were my flashes and a couple lenses. However, as a true professional I had back up. I actually had back up to my back up, because well, stuff happens. I was maybe a bit rattled for a few minutes, but pulled myself together before they arrived and WE ROCKED THIS SESSION OUT! They didn’t even know anything had happened just before. The right before sunset light was gorgeous and a later session actually worked really well for these kiddos because they had dinner and weren’t rushed.

 

I was doing a little light test and my little model just whipped out this pose so the frame wouldn’t be wasted 😉 Isn’t she precious!?

Yosemite Mentoring with Shawn Reeder

I met Shawn Reeder a long time ago when I was speaking at a photography conference. He embodies that adventurous spirit and lifestyle that is straight out of a magazine…He can sleep in his truck and makes his living photographing landscapes all over the world as well as creating some timelapses that you might walk in and see lighting up the screens of an electronics store. I knew Yosemite was his “home” park so to say. He lived in the area once upon a time and has an intimate familiarity. Lucky me; Shawn offers one-on-one mentoring for photographers and I was THRILLED he was available to meet up so I roped in a friend and decided we were going to Yosemite! Worth every single penny and more.

Of course on the way out Laura and I couldn’t resist stopping with a camera sporting carved bear at the Cedar Lodge on the way up!

002_yosemite_alternate_tunnel_view_photography

We met Shawn at the classic Tunnel View parking area where he immediately took us off trail just a few minutes away from the MASSES (it was a holiday week after all!) Next thing I know we are scaling some boulders and edging near a steep drop and my heart rate picked up a bit. A short hike and a glorious solitary log awaited a STUNNING unobstructed view just minutes from the droves of people.

Then…

I started bawling. Like serious tears. It snuck up on me. The overwhelming magnitude of the view, the excitement of the night ahead, but more importantly the pride and relief that I was doing something for MYSELF. So often, I don’t. It’s my kids. My husband. Responsibility. Don’t spend on this. Why take time to do that. All the mothers I know are nodding. It struck me to my core. The way something hits you when you are reaching back at yourself. I am so often not the person I used to be and while that is glorious in its own ways, my wanderlust spirit and adventurous self was shining. Shawn being the amazing guy he is, hugged me a deep meaningful hug. He knew. He commented something deep about the magnitude of this special place and it’s energy. That kind of thing a rock climber says. But he was right. You can see the right side of edge we walked over on the lower right of this image and through the brownish tree in the center right the parking lot of droves of people unaware that are view far beat theirs.

003_yosemite_
As if all the tears and feel good vibes weren’t enough, the wind shifted and we could see a rainbow in Bridalveil Falls. One that wasn’t visible from the parking area.
004_yosemite_bridalveil_rainbow_waterfall_view_landscape_photographers
After that we headed up to Bridalveil and did a little scrambling on the boulders. This scared the ever living junk out of me. Being a foot away from a steep fall exhilarates me as I have no fear of heights whatsoever, but climbing on slick rocks low to the ground downright makes me nervous. I guess the idea of injury by head cracking ankle shattering scares me more than death!

After a bit, we headed for the meadow of stunning views of the nose of El Capitan in the changing afternoon light.

Just a simple little trail off the regular hit list of tourist. #thatlightthough

To end the afternoon and set up for the night, we headed up to Glacier Point and stopped at Washburn Point on the way.

We followed Shawn over the rocks at Glacier Point. Right feet away from the edge, 3,214 ft above Half Dome village and the Valley floor. It was a view that Laura wasn’t comfortable going for, so she snapped this photo from her phone of Shawn and I taking it in nearing the edge. I won’t show the one I took of her worried face, but it is funny. Privately funny.

What I was shooting.

Shawn went for it being the kind of experienced sure-footed adventurer that he is.

My first attempt at astrophotography with helpful tips and tricks from Shawn. You can see Vernal Falls to the right which we hiked as a family the day before (more on that!)

The moon and valley floor.

020_yosemite_valley_lights_at_night_from_glacier_point
The Milkyway was stunning. This type of night photography takes a lot of patience and long exposures. And fighting with a tripod you might throw down to the valley if you didn’t know it would hurt someone.

023_yosemite_landscape_photography_stars_milkway
We drove out of the valley at 1:30 am or so and I couldn’t sleep until almost 3 am. It was just too much. I’m already pricing tickets to go back.

All images are for sale, just touch base with me if you are interested in buying a print of any size or licensing for commercial use. I am now offering wall murals of any of my photography if you want something large in your home. We will be putting on these half-dome with starry sky images up in Hayden’s big boy room as focal wall.
