Ryley | Louisville KY Senior Portraits | Kelly Dillman Photography

    I have always loved senior portrait sessions – they really are my fave! I was so excited to get to work on these pictures after Ryley’s shoot – she was awesome to work with and I got to shoot at a new location that I’ve been eyeing for a while 🙂 I wanted to do my own girls’ senior pictures here and someday we will… someday lol… if they ever decide what they want to wear and if our schedules ever magically align and we all have a free evening before they head off to college next year 🙁 Fingers crossed lol…

    Anyway, some things did align this night…we got perfect and I mean PERFECT weather – one of those rare cool breezy summer nights that made it no problem to run around downtown without sweating and gettin’ the hair all frizzy! Then we got this AMAZING sky!! The colors and the clouds were just to die for! The clouds kept blocking the sun at just the right angle that we got this beautiful golden glow around this turquoise and pink sunset – I didn’t photoshop it guys – that’s how it looked in real life!

    And most importantly, Ryley was so much fun! She never quit smiling and was up for anything. I want my senior sessions to capture more than just you standing there smiling – I want them to feel natural – your hair blowing in the breeze, your laughs, your confidence – the real you, not forced smiles and posed expressions. So we jump around, twirl, laugh a LOT, get some photos when you’re thinking I’m not shooting, when you’re laughing at your mom or your best friend who came along to help…

    These kinds of things are what really get me excited and get my creativity and inspiration going! It’s like I have this mission to do everything I can to capture how perfect everything is and do it justice! I hope I accomplished that for Ryley and her mom 🙂

    Sunflowers!! | Family Photos Louisville KY | Kelly Dillman Photography

    Sunflower mini session time is one of my absolute favorite times of the year! It’s so crazy how these beautiful flowers are only blooming for like three weeks so we always take advantage and get in as many shoots as possible in them before they’re gone. I just think they’re not just gorgeous, but fascinating – most of the blooms are bigger than your head! Not to mention the kids love them and they make for the most fun, fairytale- like photos 🙂 I had to share this session because they brought their puppy along and the cute factor went up about 800%!

    If you haven’t signed up yet, you still have ONE more chance this year to get in on the sunflower fun – I still have a few openings available for mini sessions at the huge sunflower field at Evans Orchard in Georgetown, KY on Sunday, August 4 so contact me at kellydillmanphoto@gmail.com or 502-767-4101 asap to reserve your spot!

    Liv | Louisville, KY Senior Pictures | Kelly Dillman Photography

    Hey Class of 2020 seniors! I hope you’re all having a great summer! This class is special to me because I have my own high school seniors this year! My twins and I are in the process of picking out outfits and coming up with some fun and artistic ideas for their own senior pictures and believe or not, summer is the perfect time to have your senior portraits done! There’s great weather, you probably have a nice glow from getting some sun finally, and your schedule is a little less crazy right now. This is such an exciting year too and you’ll want to capture who you are right now – because by senior year, you really start to figure that out! I want to help you capture your awesome style and your unique personality and give you some photos that you’ll absolutely love and want to share with your friends and family asap!

    Here’s a shoot from last year that will always be a favorite! There are so many pretty wildflowers right now so if that’s your style, let’s set it up! 🙂

    Three! | Louisville Ky. Photographer| Kelly Dillman Photography

    It’s really amazing how quick three years goes by! I took this little one’s newborn photos and her first year and 2 year old photos and I still can’t believe she’s already 3! It’s such a fun age too – they say so many funny things and have such cute reactions to things! We brought her favorite toy- her bubble blower lol but she couldn’t wait to see the horses at Blackacre! Then when we got to the goats, she didn’t want to leave! I love doing photo sessions here because kids have so much fun with the animals and you don’t have to force any smiles! 🙂 I can’t wait to see what adventures we’ll have at her 4 year shoot! 🙂

    Cutest smile ever!
    This face…!!! Pure joy!! 🙂

    My fave for sure!
    Why I LOVE shooting at sunset!

    Baby J Newborn | Louisville Lifestyle Newborn Photography | Kelly Dillman Photography

    When I was a teenager, all of my friends talked about how many babies they wanted to have one day. Strangely, I was the one that always said I didn’t want any and now as of 3 months ago, I have FOUR of them!! 🙂

    I absolutely ADORE babies and that is an understatement. (Even babies that aren’t human – I cried watching a National Geographic show about baby seals the other night…my husband says it was probably those new mom hormones… lol) But I think they are THE sweetest, most beautiful, amazing things in the world and would have 100 if it were easier, less expensive, less painful, less…well, a lot of things! 🙂

    Needless to say, I love, LOVE my job! And as a newborn mom myself, I especially love “lifestyle” newborn sessions like this one that include the whole family, sessions that focus more on welcoming this new addition into your world and your home and your life. Capturing how your older babies are so in awe and so protective of this new little person and how anxious they are to hold him and feed him and how they could just sit and stare at him all day. My goal is to capture not just sweet photos of baby, but also images that capture the love the baby brings to your family’s world 🙂
