Yes, this is our family picture. We actually had this on the front of our Christmas card this year!
It shows the chaos of family pictures. I know that it doesn't always go smoothly. I know that 2 year olds don't like to do things that are not "their idea". But this is the stage of life I am in and I LOVE this picture. I hope this doesn't make people not want me to take your pictures because of it, if anything you should want me to because I know how it goes.
I got interested in photography shortly after my husband and I got married. Since I was teaching, I did not have the time I really needed to both take the photos and edit the photos to my liking. Once we had our first baby, Dylan, I became a stay at home mom. My interest level in photography increased dramitically because it was so much fun to capture precious moments and I had the time to edit the photos. In December 2006, we were blessed with a daughter, Natalie, August 2009 Amaya was born! It is the greatest to photograph my babies as they grow.
I love it!
Photos By Kaity, LLC started back in April of 2007. A relative asked if I could take pictures of her children. I was more than happy to because I could try my new camera on kids other than my own. She liked the way everything turned out and referred a friend to me. It all snowballed from there. I have had the pleasure of shooting photos for newborns, children, families, weddings, and seniors and feel extremely blessed with the chance to do so.
When photographing children, my goal in each photo session is to capture the expressions that make each child unique. The faces that you don't want to forget them making, or the little pouty lip that sticks out right before a baby cries. Those moments are gone so fast I try to capture them so you have something special to remember them forever. Even if it is a screaming toddler in the middle of your family picture...by the way, I have pictures of all of us looking and smiling also, I just like the story this one tells.
