Toy Story 3 themed photo shoot | Jameson is 3!!!!

 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.

Everyone please enjoy a few more images from this session as well as some from his 1 and 2 year old session to reminisce. You can find them linked here and here.

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.

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!

Engagement Photo Session | Soon to be Mr. & Mrs. Boyko

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”

Brooksville, Fla. | Chinsegut Hill | The Arcaro’s

“The most important thing in the world is family and love.”
My photography clients are always so fabulous to work with. That’s true of my session with the Arcaro family, too! I heard from Danielle last spring when she saw my work from one of her co-workers.  I am so grateful for the referral because these three ladies are such a delight to be around.

Our session was the weekend of Thanksgiving.  While the weather was fine, it was these ladies and their little fur babies that made this photoshoot such a joy.

Brooksville, FL. |Friends Photo Session

WITHOUT “ME” YOUR JUST “AWESO”

garage-band

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!

Brooksville, FL |Chinsinghut Hill Manor House| The Gregson Family

32

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!

3Let’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.

 

Spring Hill, FL |Anniversary photo session of John and Margret

1

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.

Pine Island Beach | Weeki Wachee, FL | Chris & Deanna beach themed photo session

27These 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.

Downtown Brooksville | Family Photos |Brandie, Antonio & family.

BrandieE

This family right here brought so much light on a cloudy and thundery day.  No, seriously, it rained and thundered all day up until the hour of the session.  I met this family in downtown Brooksville for their family portrait session.  We were so blessed to have been able to get so many amazing photos in the hour’s time before it continued to begin to rain again.

Let me introduce you to Brandie, Antonio, Ti’Najhay, Ashtyn, Jaleiah, Brinyh, and their mic drop, Savanna.

We started off this gorgeous session with a little love and cuddliness.  brooksvillefamilyphotos15

These two were so cute and cuddly.  I just love photographing couples. I feel like their love just jumps off the images and you get those warm fuzzies within you. Well done you two!

Now, let’s showcase these 5 amazing siblings!

Ti’Najhay, the oldest. An honor roll student in 8th grade who is super helpful at home and being the oldest has become the “mother” of the bunch.  From the short time I spent with them, you can tell she has such a great way with her siblings, she’s creative and her mammas life saver.

Ashyton, the lonely boy of the crew.  He is an honor roll student who loves to cook and eat. While he is very protective of his sisters, he has that love hate relationship every sibling has. I could understand that though… four girls, one boy…he is way outnumbered and bound to get ganged up on.  But none the less, loves his girls with all his heart. brooksvillefamilyphotos48
brooksvillefamilyphotos41                                                                                         Jaleiah, the sweet little soul that she is.  A gymnastic, pizza, and fashion lover. She is so loveable and loves to talk. Her personality shined through her images.

Briniyh, a photogenic fashionista who colors, enjoys reading, loves flowers and hates broccoli.  She enjoys watching t.v., Descendants being her favorite show. Her smile is so big and she laughs a lot.

brooksvillefamily-photos6Last, but not least, as Brandie says, their “mic drop”, Savanna.  She turned one over the summer and has brought so much joy to their lives. She is the boss and runs the show! He personality is really starting to shine more and more everyday. She has an equal love for bathtime and dinner time.
