Holly | Maternity

Holly is adorable. In fact, when she contacted me about maternity photos, I instantly remembered her AMAZING abs which I shot during her Coquette session with me waaaaaay back in 08. Now her abs are doing something much more impressive than just looking pretty as she's carrying her second (sure to be darling) baby! I had such fun with these three and am stoked for a playdate so Sully can meet cutie Jett :) Can't wait to see the sweet little new one!!

Jill+Kyle+Itty Bitty Baby Bump!

I absolutely love Jill! She is my fantastic, miracle-worker of a chiropractor and Sully & I just love seeing her to get us all back in line and feeling good! Her darling hubby Kyle is also a super-amazing chiropractor so I highly suggest checking the two of them out at Gulledge Family Wellness!

Anyway, these two are expecting their first little baby boy and needed some photos to commemorate the occasion! Since Jill's bump was still so little I think we'll do another session as she gets closer to delivering. Either way, are they the cutest or what??

Sully Says : GALOSHES!

Sully Says{A Monthly Themed Art Series}

Celeste+Tom | Married : Reception

Sam, Sully & I all traveled to New York for Celeste & Tom's wedding, and it was sooooo worth the journey!! Celeste and I have been friends since 3rd grade and I can't even say how happy I am for her that she found such a wonderful guy in Tom! Their wedding was beautiful, and I expect nothing less of their future together :) Congrats you two! The wedding was so much fun, in fact, that I had a terrible time narrowing down the photos and am going to post them in chunks, starting backwards with their rockin' reception!

Sarah+Jake | Married!

Without a doubt, Sarah & Jake's wedding was absolutely perfect. It's rare to find a completely perfect wedding (not that all of my clients aren't wonderful and each wedding unique and fabulous in its own way :) - but one where the couple is sooooo in love and adorable, the colors are gorgeous, the decor is stunning (and handmade, in Sarah's case), the locations lovely, the plans uniquely creative, and the weather perfect! Seldom do allllllll of these things come together and work out so well! Needless to say, I really enjoyed this day, as well as working with Sarah & Jake throughout their engagement. I can't wait to see what the future holds for them - I know it will be wonderful! :)

I had a really hard time narrowing down photos for this post, so check Facebook for more, coming soon! :)

Check out their also-ridiculously-fun-and-gorgeous engagement session here, and Sarah's beautiful photography here.

Georgia+Mike | Wedding

I absolutely adore that first photo! I don't even remember taking it, but noticed it while browsing through the images. It's such a sweet, unguarded, adorable moment! These two are really a great couple and I've had a wonderful time getting to know them :)

Also, thanks to Drew for coming out and shooting with me! There's a few of his images mixed in here too!

Sarah+Jake | Engaged

This session has to be one of my all-time favorites ever! Tyler & I had sooooo much fun breaking into cow pastures, dodging poison ivy, and laughing through it all with these two! Sarah & Jake are such a sweet couple and so obviously in love. It was a pleasure going shooting with you two - CANNOT WAIT for your wedding in October! And be sure and check out Sarah's work too - she's quite a talented photographer, herself!

(Sorry for the RIDICULOUS amount of photos here too...couldn't help myself!!)


Michelle, Ken & Harley | Couple

Michelle & Ken came out for a mini-shoot and brought their gorgeous dog, Harley, along too! I just love great danes and I think Harley was exceptionally photogenic :)

If you're interested in booking a mini-shoot, they're a great deal - $250 for a mini-shoot at my country home (duh ;-) that's about 30 minutes long and you receive a CD of 15 edited images from the shoot. It's quick, simple, and a fantastic rate! Book soon - my gorgeous fields are going to be cut in the next month and they really do make such a pretty backdrop for photos! E-mail kelley@kelley-photo.com for more info & booking.


Whitakers | Family

I'm so, so, so, so happy for these guys...that gorgeous gal in these pics happens to be my cousin Shelly, and that handsome fella with her is my NEW cousin, Jason (who is the mastermind behind the new blog!). And the three little ones happen to be quite dear to me as well! Sam & I flew to Tortola, BVI to be with them as they tied the knot on the beach. I'll be posting photos from the actual wedding too, but I know they're anxiously awaiting these family shots on the beach. Love you guys!

Valentine's Day Is Sneaking Up!

Wow! Can anyone else believe that it's already January 7th!?! And as usual, Valentine's Day has snuck up on us! Do you know what you're giving your hubby/fiance/boyfriend this year?

Well, if you haven't done a Coquette session yet (or heck, even if you have and it's been awhile ;), this is the perfect time to do one! Your boy of choice will be absolutely drooling for you by the time he checks out your photos :) And, the best part - these shoots are *SO* much fun - really!! They can be as risque or tame as you'd like (meaning - you certainly don't have to get naked - a pretty dress can be just as sexy as lingerie). These may also be done with your honey, if you'd like a sweet, intimate view of the two of you. They can be shot in studio, or in the comfort of your own home. And how about some snowy photos, Kansas City? This white stuff might as well be good for something... ;)kaitlin So here's the deal: we have very limited time available to get the photos taken and processed in time for you to give the best gift EVA! Remaining dates to book:

January 28
January 29
February 1
February 2

We'll even give you a little Valentine's sale to sweeten the deal :) The shoot itself is $350 includes hair and makeup styling by the incomparable Katie (Mink Artistry) so you look extra-super hot. You get to wear 3-4 outfits (or un-outfits as the case may be ;), and we'll shoot about an hour. You'll end up with 30-50ish gorgeous, fully edited images to wow your beau.

One of our famous Little Black Books (a custom-designed, printed and bound, GORGEOUS book featuring you) will be $375 (normally $425).

A 16x24 bedroom canvas (I actually have one of these up in our bedroom and my hubby loves it :) will be $340 (normally $375).

A high resolution CD with all of your fully-edited photos (you can print from this yourself, and you get ALL of your hottie pics) will be $650 (normally $895). Or choose 15 of your favorite images for the CD and pay only $450 (normally $565).

Finally, you can give your boy a set of 5 5x7 prints for $125 (normally $150).

However, these rates are only applicable on the specified dates. If you'd like a weekend date (January 30 or 31), they are available for an additional $50. Email Ashley@kelley-photo.com to book your spot! :)

EDITED TO ADD: Another idea - boys, get a gift certificate for your hotter halves so she can come in and be pampered and feel great about herself...not to mention, she'll share the photos with you - not a bad deal :)
