NOW BOOKING: Lifestyle STUDIO Sessions!!

KKP Studio Announcement.jpg

This is without a doubt one of my favorite announcements since first starting KKP!! It feels so good to finally share that one of my dreams is coming true,
I am now offering Lifestyle STUDIO Sessions!! 

Since day one of being behind the camera I always wondered, should I have a Brick and Mortar? Of course, after some time people started asking to shoot in my studio, to which I had to reply that I didn't actually own one! Not having that has an option always made me wonder, am I missing out on working with some families because I didn't have a space to offer them? I've gone back + forth about the idea for the last three years. I've questioned if I should build out of our home or if renting would be a good option.  Honestly, the idea of having a studio never went away, but was always put on the back burner because it seemed like too big of a project, at least one that never seemed realistic. Then last summer my husband + I found out we were expecting!! The day we found out we were going to be parents the wheels in my head started to turn! One constant thought that never disappeared was, "Okay, now I'm not just a photographer, I'm going to be a mom... a working mom!! How am I going to make this work?" And the brainstorming began!

I knew I didn't want to stop working. I love what I do, but knew things would change once baby girl arrived. My time would now be split. I couldn't do KKP at all hours of the day. I knew she'd need + deserve her momma's time too. I had to figure out how I could work the same amount of time, but be a momma as well. One of those "work smarter not harder" type things. I figured this might be a great time to resurface the studio idea. This way I could still work with the same amount of families, but instead of dividing my sessions up on a daily basis, condense them into one day so that I'm not away from my daughter as much. So I went to Google.

 I started to research spots in Memphis that might work as a studio space... I was not having luck! There weren't many options as far as spaces that offered a blank canvas with natural light. Then I thought about the wonderful ladies at Propcellar. I had met the owners, Karlee + Nicki, shortly after starting KKP back in May of 2015. They had been nothing but generous, kind + supportive since the day I met them so, I gave them a call! 

After my conversation with Nicki we set up a date to meet in person to discuss all the ideas I had about this STUDIO dream. We eventually met + oh my Lordy, these women made my year!! I sat in their office, put my heart out there for them to either accept or deny + before I knew it I was literally crying. Tears of joy of course, but nonetheless, sitting on their couch crying... Granted, it could have been the pregnancy hormones, their unending love + willingness to accept my visions or the fact that everything was coming full circle. Actually, now thinking back on it I'm pretty sure it was a mixture of all those things!!

So where will my STUDIO space be?! PROPCELLAR. It's a warehouse that acts as a prop rental by day + venue by night! Located in the heart of mid-town Memphis, this space is nothing short of my photographer dreams!! A perfectly natural lit blank canvas that will be the prettiest lifestyle setting once transformed with a couple KKP touches. I'm so excited to get in there to start shooting + cannot wait to now offer a service that I once thought was unattainable! 

These STUDIO Sessions will be perfect for the majority of the Collections I offer: Maternity, Newborn, Milestone, Family + Mini Sessions!! It's a way to not worry about the cleanliness or brightness of your house as well as give an alternative if you bundle Collections + not want to do all your sessions in your home! It's a controlled setting which means I'll know exactly how the natural light will affect your session + the end result of your images. Pretty much a win/win!! I look forward to working with many families in this new space + see how this next adventure unfolds!! 

A Special Little Valentine | Bump Announcement

One thing I absolutely adore are BUMP ANNOUNCEMENTS!! I totally understand the feeling every momma has when they've been keeping what seems like the hardest secret for what feels like eternity! Then, finally reaching the day they get to shout it to the world that YOU'RE EXPECTING!! This precious couple wanted to incorporate a little holiday flare to their announcement and what better way to share there's a little love on the way than announcing on Valentine's Day?! So much love and one big congrats to the Wade family!!

Welcoming Baby Girl | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Newborn Session

Being pregnant now with a baby girl of my own makes being a Memphis newborn photographer even more special because each time I work with a new family of three it gives me the butterflies knowing I'll be in their shoes in four more months! This precious family of three...five if you count their fur babies... was an absolute treat. I almost felt like I was shooting for someone's Pinterest board! Quick side note: to all my future clients - if you're wondering what to wear for your session or color palette to choose, this family hits the nail on the head!

Precious baby girl was such a sweetheart, falling asleep in the comfort of her parent's arms + when awake just fascinated by the clicking of my camera. There is something so precious about a content baby staring right into my lens during sessions. It really allows me to capture those tiny little features that will quickly grow within the next couple of months. Keep scrolling for more of our morning together. Enjoy!!

Cate Turns ONE | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Milestone Session

Being a Memphis lifestyle family photographer not only means I get to work with amazing families, but I also get to be a part of such important times in their lives! I photographed sweet Cate's Newborn + 6 Month photos, so when her parents reached out about her One Year Session I was thrilled to see them again. So often I walk into a family's life as a stranger + walk away feeling like an auntie. This is the case with Cate, her parents + their pup!! Each milestone felt like a mini get-together, catching up on the months in between our sessions. I just love the way her parents envisioned our time together. They wanted to ditch the balloons, banners + cake smash to focus more on Cate + this time in her life. Babies don't keep, can I get an amen?? I have absolutely adored watching Cate grow from a newborn + loved capturing this big girl's one year milestone! I hope you enjoy the images as much as I did taking them!!

A New Baby Brother | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Newborn Session

Being a Memphis newborn photographer, my job comes with so much cuteness, and this session was double the cuteness! The beautiful Cathey family welcomed another BOY to their crew! I had such a wonderful time photographing this new family of four. Big brother was just the sweetest, showing me where his little brother's room was + being so gentle when it was his time for photos! Sometimes older siblings can be a little timid when a new baby arrives, but this big bro was so infatuated with his little brother!! Keep scrolling to see all the cuteness! 

Six Months with Emma Paige | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Milestone Session

Little Miss Emma Paige was an absolute joy to photograph!! If anyone has been following KKP for awhile you'll know my endless love for milestone sessions. For me, it's one of my favorite stages of a baby's first year. Six month kiddos are just bigger...rolls upon rolls of chubby goodness, they can smile + express themselves, they have more of a personality + my favorite of all traits - they can sit up, but not move, which makes for a great session!! Spending my time with this precious family I could totally tell how much EP's parents adore her, but honestly how could you not...look at the sweet pea! She's such a happy baby + I loved every second with her! Scroll down for more of this incredibly cute session!! 

Home with Little Man Murphy | Memphis Tennessee Lifestyle Newborn Session

Being a lifestyle baby photographer allows me the opportunity of meeting so many new families in the Memphis area, and it is such a great joy!! I absolutely love working with babies, but walking into this session I wasn't sure if I'd be hanging with a little Miss or Mister since mom and dad were waiting until the birth to know the gender. Upon my arrival to their beautiful home, I was greeted at the door by momma and little man Murphy! Our time together was just perfect. Murphy split his time snoozing in the arms of his parents and looking around while I was clicking away at his cuteness. Scroll down for more of this adorable session!
