Fun photography session on Bainbridge Island

This sweet family was so much fun! We met on a local, Bainbridge beach and luckily avoided any rain! Having two girls myself, I love photographing the bond between sisters. The youngest one was a little wary of me at first. Now let me say, it is quite common for kiddos to be wary of me at first. When my oldest was a younger kiddo, I don’t think she EVER smiled at a stranger. Some people got quite offended! I say this because -parents, if you have a shy kiddo, I will not be offended if they are wary of me.

With shy children, I think part of the reason they react with shyness to new situations because they are not sure what is going to be asked of them. What are the expectations of this “photography session thing”? Kiddos usually generally warm up when they realize I am asking very little of them. My number one goal is to make the session fun for your kid. I hope you’ll come back and get photos again and I know it is easier to schedule if your kiddos remember the experience as positive.

Needless to say, I am very excited to meet your kiddo, whether they be shy, hyper, happy, wild, quiet or even worried. I will do my best to play and make it fun!

Hurricane Ridge Family Session

Early last year, I had the idea to photograph families in beautiful places. I mean, everywhere I shoot is beautiful in its own way but I wanted to showcase the truly jaw-dropping places we have in our state. At first there were a lot of ideas of where these sessions could take place. Because I take great pride in the art I create for families, I wanted to test these locations out. Every once in a while, I run model calls on my site (you can check back to this page for updates). I had always heard about Hurricane Ridge but never been there so I opened up a model call to shoot up there so I could understand the light and how I wanted to use it.

The first time I traveled up there, I got there about 3 hours before my shoot was scheduled to start so I could roam around. As I strapped on my backpack and headed up the trail the first thing I noticed was the silence. Our lives are so busy so rarely do hear nothing but the wind. I hiked for about an hour, constantly amazed by the breathtaking view as I rounded each bend. I remember sitting on a rock, all alone with these towering peaks looming in the distance and I felt so at peace.

Since that day I have had quite a few family sessions in the mountains. While I know it won’t be as quiet, hello children, I still want it to be magical. This family was full of so much love for each other they made my job easy.  I also don’t think I have photographed a kid who made me laugh more than their oldest son.

This family was my last session of the day during my Spring mini sessions. I will tell you first hand that the last shoot of the day always gets the best light! They also brought their hilarious dog who really made me laugh bouncing all over the place and causing general mayhem. I ALWAYS welcome furry family members, you just have to be ok with them riling things up! 🙂 Of course, I am always more interested in playful shots as opposed to posed shots so I really like this rowdy element.

Point No Point Maternity Session

I met this lady a few years ago when I did her maternity session for her first born. That baby is now 2 and another little man is on the way! I have been dying to shoot and Point No Point forever and so we headed up there. This mama wanted a pretty dress to wear but did not want to spend a fortune because well, pregnancy is fleeting! So she rented a dress from Rent the Runway! It was pretty fun because she texted me all the options and I got to let her know which one I thought would photograph best. The one she chose was gorgeous! She said the Rent and Runway process was pretty simple.

 

We headed up to Point No Point on a Friday night and I shocked to find the beach almost empty! It was a warm summer evening and we pretty much had the place to ourselves. Keep Point No Point in mind for your session location if you want endless beauty 🙂

Bainbridge Island Family Photography | K. Fam

These are some snippets from one of my recent mini sessions. I am always torn on mini sessions. I really love that people who are not ready to commit to a full session get some photos with their family but the issue is the time constraint. All my sessions are pretty short, I know that people get burned out in front of the camera. But 20 minutes is the timeframe in a normal session when people have not really had time to warm up to me and the process yet. Usually the last 15 minutes of the shoot provide the sweetest emotions.

Every year, I go back and forth about whether I should still do mini sessions or get rid of them all together. This year I am doing very limited mini sessions. This family I see multiple times a year so they get used to me pretty quick! 🙂

Kitsap County Newborn Photographer | Baby G.

This session was so much fun. You can really tell these two love being parents to this new little bundle. He was so sweet and easy the whole time. I think a lot of parents worry about doing a newborn session because they worry it will be stressful. My number one goal for our session together it to make sure that it is as stressfree as possible. If baby is hungry, you feed him, no rush. New diaper? No problem. If he is wide awake the whole time? No worries. Fast asleep? That is fine too 🙂

Looking forward to more newborn sessions this summer.
