Hi there! i’m katelyn.

Hello, and welcome to the KJ Blog! I'm Katelyn James, and my husband Michael and I are a wedding photography team based in Richmond, Virginia. We hope you grab some coffee (or a diet coke, in my case) and enjoy viewing our latest work, browsing resources for photographers, and getting a little peek into our life!  Read more...

Everly’s Eleventh Month

This month seems a little sentimental because it’s the last month before she turns ONE!!!! It’s hard to organize these posts because Evy was born on the 18th, and so she turns a month older halfway through every month! She was entering her 11th month right before Christmas!! So this post may seem out of order but technically, it’s accurate! All of these images are from December 18th to January 18th! It’s crazy that next month will mark a full year of doing these posts for her! I’m not sure what the future will be with baby pics because once July is here, we’ll be starting over!

The Unhealthy Version of Hustle

  • Ask Anything

I think it’s safe to say that I’m in a new season of work/life balance. Life looks a lot different these days. However, I can’t hide the fact that I hustled HARD in my 20’s…. really for all of my 20’s! I had the advantage of starting REALLY young and building my business before kids and before bigger responsibilities entered my life. I’m grateful for that…. but before some of you who are trying to build businesses WITH kids get frustrated… let me explain that my hustle didn’t happen without a cost.

Getting our Baby to Sleep!

  • Why We Hired a Sleep Coach!

Well, I debated sharing this post…. because honestly, I don’t feel like I should be giving anyone any “parenting” advice! I’m only 11 months into this journey, and I still don’t know much considering what is lying ahead! We have years and years of learning about how to care for our babies, and I’m sure I’ll look back a few years from now and read this post and think “Whew! I didn’t have a clue back then!”. However, I decided to go ahead and share this part of our life because it has been a huge turning point for us and Evy. The decisions we made and the results that have come from them have relieved a lot of stress and have given us a lot of peace! So, naturally, I want to share our experience in case others can benefit!
