Cake smashing fun on the beach! Meet the Konz family, y’all. Traveling from Lancaster Kentucky to visit family in Brooksville Florida. Casey and her husband decided they wanted some family photos taken on a beach.… More
Welcome back, KGP tribe!
I recently had an outstanding session with this family. I was told when Jackie scheduled with me that it had been 10 years since they were all together for a family session. Now since the sisters are in different points of their lives, it was a great time to get everyone together for a session for their mother. Thank you Jodi, Tara, and Jackie for realizing how important it is to document your family. I think I can say for your mother, she is so happy to have these loving moments documented.
Aside from it raining, yes another shoot with rain (insert eye roll), it was such a pleasure to finally meet everyone in this lovely family for their group session. Since this is a group, I am going to call this post and family “La Famiglia”.
Yes you guessed correctly….they are Italian. This family enjoys their Sunday dinners, the beach, and pool when they all get together. Having a good time or as they say in Italian, diversititi, is what this family is all about.
We met at Chinsegut Hill, which by they ways seems to be a very popular place for my clients lately. I do love this location, and for so many reasons, but lets dive into some info about the famiglia and showcase some photos from their session.
So we have Marie and Herb. Marie is “The Matriarch”. Loves everyone here unconditionally and is an outstanding mother, from what I hear from her daughters.
Herb is a retired New York City Detective.
Jodi, the oldest sister and the craziest….not my words Jodi, talk to your sisters. 😉
Jeremy, Jodi’s husband who has a love for tattoos and cooking.
Tara, the middle sister and most loving, yet is referred to as “Wreck it Ralph”, again…. talk to your sisters. 😉
Jackie, the little sister who is the most sarcastic….but no nickname here. (I’m gonna have to dig a bit deeper and find that out)!
Christie, Jackie’s wife. She also enjoys cooking and is the most adventurous of the group.
Berlyn, (awesome name, right?) Is the oldest of the cousins. She has earned herself a nickname…”Wreck it Ralph #2”.
Bailey, the sweetest soul they all know.
And last, but definitely not least, Chelsea. She is that adorable baby you see. Already a spitfire and with so much love for her parents Christie and Jackie.
After all these nicknames, I’m kinda jealous and think I would like one 🙂
It truly was an amazingly fun photo shoot. And if any of you are considering a family session or are prepping for an upcoming session, heed the words of Jackie :
“We enjoyed every minute of our session. Everything from the communication to the shoot was above my expectations. You are in amazing hands.” Solid words and advice! Thank you Jackie!
Please enjoy a few more images from this fun session.
I can’t even begin to tell you how I felt when I photographed this ray of sunshine, Jameson. And thank goodness for his light because it was raining during this entire session. Yup…RAINING, dark and dreary! So props to Danny ( Jameson’s Dad) who held the umbrella over my head and camera to capture these fun images. When it comes to photography, just the word “rain” brings such panic to me, but I must say this session is one to surely remember!
So a little history on Jameson. Introduced to his parents over 4 years ago when I first met them for their maternity session. I immediately clicked with them and before I knew it, I had a call to photograph baby Jameson at his newborn session. While Jameson was so much fun to photograph, I was still finding my niche in photography and shortly realized that newborn photoshoots wasn’t for me.
I won’t ever forget the day I walked into his nursery. All decked out in Disney. It was so tastefully done too. I was totally digging all the small details of all the current Pixar movies and that storm trooper! It was my size! Well, I guess that isn’t saying much considering I am under 5 feet tall, but seriously, it greeted me at the door!
In any event, I must have said at some point during that newborn session that we should totally use this picture when we take his 3 year photos. And apparently, after all these years, Kalyn remembered me saying that. Here is the frame I was talking about that was hanging on the wall in his nursery.
Such a serious face, Jameson. I think he was going for the 3 and I’m sophisticated look. Well, thank you again Kalyn and Danny for having me hang out with you and this dapper 3 year old.
It was my very first time photographing the Neal family and I am so happy I got this referral from yet another great client. Let me introduce to you, Eric, Danielle, & the adorable princess, Kylie. If you haven’t figured it out yet, Kylie just turned 3 and her parents are so excited to celebrate this birthday with her.
The Neal family enjoys visiting Disney and riding bikes together. The family consists of Eric, the loving father and husband. Danielle, a very caring and fun mother and wife. And the sweetest cutie pie, Kylie, who is very smart, beautiful and three years old now!
I really enjoy photographing milestones like this. It is such a great way to have fun and relax with my clients and just let them enjoy each other as I capture it all!
Take a look at these adorable photos of Kylie and us celebrating her 3rd birthday!
Thank you Neal family for sharing a little piece of your heaven with me. I really enjoyed my time with you! See you soon!!
Another year of the Sirvent family photos. I think this makes year three. What joy this family gives me each year when I see all these beautiful girls. Melissa and Johnny are so blessed and I am the lucky one who gets to capture memories for them as they all grow.
Starting with Johnny, a.k.a. Dad, the very hard worker so all of his girls are taken care of. Then we have Melissa, a.k.a Mom, the stay at home mother with her hands very full, clearly!
Emma, the oldest, likes to play softball and enjoys reading.
Haley enjoys soccer and playing Roblox.
Abby is just getting into softball and has the kindest heart.
Madison, always being silly and very happy little girl.
And then there is little Gracie. She is learning how to walk and enjoys her baths and LOVES her food.
When I asked Melissa what she enjoyed about getting her photos taken, she replied” I really enjoy being together as a family while moments are being captured forever.” Any words of wisdom for other families preparing for a session I asked. She said “Relax and smile. Kim will do all the rest!” Thank you, Melissa!
Okay ya’ll, please enjoy a few more photos from the session. Hope to see YOU soon for a family session.
These two were so easy going and IN LOVE! Couples are so much fun to photograph. Throw in a couple who is getting married, I’m beaming from ear to ear.
Since 2014 these two have been sharing each other’s company. Often seeing each other on the soccer field in middle school, then again after high school at soccer tournaments in Clearwater, Billy finally worked up the courage to ask Amie out. With a common interest of soccer (if you haven’t noticed by those legs above) it was so apropo for Billy to propose to Amie on the soccer field. Amie described the proposal below: Continue reading “Engagement Photo Session | Soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Boyko”
WITHOUT “ME” YOUR JUST “AWESO”
This group of friends was just so much fun to photograph. We never ran out of ideas! I think we could still be shooting if it wasn’t for their dinner reservation and the lack of light.
Nicole came to me to discuss a photoshoot idea with her friends as a gift to Thomas from the other 4 members of their group.
Nicole and her friends have been friends for many years. Each of them, who she met during different times of her life, holds a special place in her heart.
She said they wanted fun images to show the special bond and of course, their outstanding personalities. This session is so awesome because it had no special occasion (well aside from gift), but their friendship is now shown through these photos. I don’t know about you, but that right there is a pretty cool reason for a session.
Let’s talk outfits!!!
In our consultation, Nicole wanted the opportunity to change outfits and be able to shoot in different locations. We collaborated and came up with a game plan.
They all did a great job coordinating their outfits for their “themed” locations.
The silliness was on overload. But when it was time for that serious shot, this crew pulled it off on a level like no other! I am now officially OBSESSED with Friends Photo Session. How can I call this work??? It is so much fun!
They turned it up a notch and added in a photo of their late friend/brother. Such a sweet way to pay respects and show their love.
If you are interested in a fun session like this with your bestie or tribe, contact me! I’m currently running a YOUR WAY MINI! The best part, it is your way! Customized to YOU!
Oh hey there, friends!
Another family on the blog today who has been having me photograph them for several years. I’m lucky enough to say I’ve even photographed the Gregson family more than once each year too! I truly can’t believe how much the children have grown and changed since I first started photographing them.
Let’s look back on their first shoot with Kimberly Gore Photography. You’ll see big changes with the kids, and Mom! She’s totally proving now that blondes have way more fun!
Let’s talk about these adorable kids:
Porter: Now in 1st grade!! He is still a big fan of Star Wars and loves everything soccer.
Liam; A big boy in Kindergarten now, attends gymnastics and still has a party everywhere is goes!
And little baby Declan is now 2! Yes two years old…ugh, my heart is crushed. Why do they grow up so quickly? He is developing a great love for soccer and wants to be involved in everything his brothers are in.
No, I did not have access to all these animals. Well maybe the dinosaur was there 😉
When Ashlea called me to take their photos again, I immediately began counting down the days to our session!
And as for the day of the shoot, I had the usual fun! They had a pretty great time, too.
It is always a pleasure getting to know clients who have such a long lasting love for one another. These two have been married for 44 years and have had the blessing of 5 children.
John and Margaret met and married while John was stationed in Germany. He was serving in the army and eventually they ended up in upstate New York. For many years they enjoyed life there, but eventually moved to sunny Florida.
Five kids and nine beautiful grandkids later, they still enjoy spending their free time together, traveling, and bringing their family together. Spending time laughing, and taking it day by day is their secret to success and staying friends after 44 years of marriage. They have created an incredible family, filled with laughter, hugs, and great German food!. Cheers to many more years together.
Mark 10:9 – “Therefore what God has joined together, let no one separate.”
These two lovers are getting married in the next couples weeks. I am so excited for them and can’t wait to see what the future holds.
This session was taken before the big questions was popped and I just want to showcase their gorgeous photos. Beach photos are so fun and I encourage anyone who loves the beach to invest in a photo shoot at one.
Deanna and Chris, I wish you love and happiness.
