just born EXCITED! They can make what others would consider just an average day into an INCREDIBLE day just because of the energy that they exude! Kaitlin is one of those people. Since BEFORE she even signed up for her coaching session, she was telling me how excited she was! No pressure right?! Ah! I told Michael, “Gosh I hope she has a good time…. she’s so excited!”. And I’m not talking just smiles and giggles…. she decorated her CAR before making the super long drive done from Cape May. I was so thankful for her teachable attitude and desire to learn. We accomplished so much in our little amount of time!
My other photographer for the day was sick and so we’re going to reschedule. Tis the season for colds! I love fall but I wish my body could adjust to drastic temperature changes better!!
So we started the day with lunch, headed out for her headshots and then met back at my house for some brainstorming and Q&A. Despite a few interruptions from Bokeh, we were able to work hard for several hours and I was excited for Kaitlin to leave a little overwhelmed with all the new ideas she had! It was an awesome day and i’m so honored that she drove SO far for her session!! Enjoy some of my favorites and if you’re interested in a coaching session, I will be announcing more dates in December!ah! Practicing in bright light! Kaitlin you’re so cute! LOVE THIS!!! FAVORITE!!! SUCH a FAVORITE!!! Love this! And then we shot on top of the parking garage in the BRIGHT sun… because we could:) yay!!! xoxo
Welcome to December’s Student Spotlight!! It’s a new month and we have new photographers to celebrate!! I’m so thankful for them and for their willingness to give of their time and share their stories!!!
This shoot was supposed to happen about a month earlier on the exact day that leftover rains from a hurricane swept through Washington. I’m so thankful we rescheduled! Our reschedule date was absolute perfection! The temperature, the glow, the locations…. it was beautiful! Tyler and Abby’s outfit choices were wonderful and the leaves were full of color and still hanging on the trees.
When Michael and I were in our early years of dating, I would go on trips with his family for Thanksgiving and summer trips to West Virginia and I spent time with his cousins! “Bri-Bri” was so little! He’s the youngest of all of the cousins and it’s crazy to think that he’s old enough to be getting MARRIED! He’s actually older than we were when we got married!! We have known Shannon for years and we were THRILLED when we heard that Brian had proposed because we always hoped that would happen!!!
Maybe it’s just me…. but I feel like this fall is FLYING by! It seems like just the other day that I was sharing about three more KJ Students who are doing amazing things in their businesses! Well, this weeks marks the beginning of November and I have three amazing students to introduce you too!!!
This session is beautiful… if I do say so myself! It’s colorful, it’s vibrant, it’s full of joy and it’s also LONG! It’s a lengthy post because I just had so many favorites and I absolutely loved my time with these two last week! Paige, like a lot of our brides, is a photographer herself! She’s talented, full of life, energetic and creative. I felt the pressure to take this location that she knows well and make it look fresh and knew to her!! Nikhil is an audio engineer for Apple (which we think is fascinating!) and despite hardly ever wearing a suit, he wore one for Paige and made all of her outfit dreams come true!
I’m so excited to share this final 2020 Wedding with you all!! It’s a special one! We photographed this beautiful wedding day on our own 10 year anniversary! Ten years ago on this day, we were celebrating in my parent’s backyard under a massive white tent too! This was my brother-in-law’s baby sister’s wedding day and celebrating with the Malizia family was such a treat! They are a family MADE for weddings!
