.Change.

just want to give ya’ll the update. obviously, Ksquared got a new face…..

like not as in a new photographer, i’m still me :) but my website was re-vamped! so if any of my posts seem “off” and the pictures don’t line up, that’s why.. new dimensions tend to mess with my old posts ;)

but i’m hoping this one will stick! :)

kay that’s all…. keep checking back, i have some shoots lined up on my calendar!!!

 

smile!! :D

.Flips, Dogs, and Photography.

 

 

 

 

i have the immense privilege of being able to teach photography to a girl i babysat for a week with her two siblings about 4 years ago… i absolutely adore their family, and have kept in contact with them over the years.

 

last time i hung out with them i had some fun with her, her brother, their two dogs, and a trampoline.

a good time was had by all :)

.Wedding | Jessica & Ron.

there is seriously nothing better than hearing the words “I LOVE THEM!!!!” after whoever you photographed sees the photos for the first time. from anyone you shoot. it’s the reason i love photography so much. to freeze the moments people love the most. to look back at the beauty, the happiness, the story.

i’m so happy to tell you guys that i was able to photograph my own wedding last month. and last week i was able to give the bride the photos. i loved every minute of this wedding, although we were scared that we’d have to move the wedding indoors due to the weather, when we arrived that morning, it was beautiful blue sky that greeted us with the sun shining beautifully between the clouds.

i hope you enjoy these pictures as much as i did taking them! Congratulations again, Jessica and Ron!
