Brooksville, Fl. | The Kong life family of 5 photo session| Our happily ever after.

This family was the absolute sweetest. The Kong family was so much fun and loving. As a family of 5 myself, I can totally relate to any chaos that can occur. Not this family. Smooth as butta! We took our time through every point of the session. Everything went so smoothly that we has time to not only go to 1 extra location but 3! I’m so happy they found me and look forward to sharing our session with you.

This family enjoys the simple life. Kicking back, watching moves together and soaking in all the family as they spend this time together.

Alisha, who is 13, has a love to draw.

Greig is 12 and enjoys playing soccer.

Their baby girl, Ashlynn, is 2 and loves to play with her big brother and dance.

Ashlynn must get her moves from her momma. Sonia enjoys dancing as well. So I bet the music is on and they are dancing together a lot! Greig, Sr. enjoys everything family, and I can put money on it he’s dancing with them too 🙂

When I asked Sonia if she had any words of wisdom for other families preparing for a session. She replied with,”yes, compare prepared to be who you are as a family and don’t be afraid to express your love for one another. Your pictures capture the special moment in time that you can look at for years to come to remind you of the wonderful love that you have been blessed with.” Sonia, I couldn’t have said it better.

Hiring a photographer is an investment. You invest your time and money into someone who with capture memories between you and your family that you truly can not put a dollar sign on. The feeling you get when you see what was captured, even if there was a ton of chaos, is life. It’s your life and nothing can be more beautiful to you than the life you have with your family. Hold on to it, keep it safe, and capture the memories with Kimberly Gore Photography.

Please enjoy a few more photos from our session to ooh and ahhhh over.

Thank you Sonia and family. You are a joy to work with and I look forward to seeing you again soon.

65 years of wedded bliss | Anniversary photo session | Hudson Florida | 4 generations


Grow old with me, the best is yet to be.

I was so happy to hear that Lorraine said her parents were coming back to Florida for their 65th anniversary. Lorraine hosted a dinner at her home for her parents and all the kids, grandkids, and great-grand kids that could make it, attended.

I had the honor of photographing them all together. I originally met James and Connie in 2017. Let’s get to know this lovely couple a bit and recap what I learned about them when we first met.

James became a Methodist minister 54 years ago.  He will be 87 this coming August.  Connie raised their 5 children…2 girls and 3 boys. She had her hands full for sure.   After moving to Florida with their family,  she worked for Publix for 15 years then retired.

Now their children are adults, and they have been so very blessed with 16 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren. But, let’s look back to those beautiful photos I took of James and Connie 2 years ago.

So much love! How can you not ooh and awe over these two?

Fast forward to the recent time together:

And let’s not forget all the people who are here because they fell in love.

It truly is a blessing when you are surrounded by your family for something as amazing as a 65th wedding anniversary. To be side by side with each other through life for all those years is something to be so proud of.

James and Connie, keep doing what you are doing. You got it all right. I look forward to seeing you again for your 70th anniversary! Love and hugs.
