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!

Mother’s Day |Kelly Dillman Photography| Louisville Family Photographer

So this was one of those shoots where all of the elments come together to create magic! Beautiful weather, amazing light, just the right amount of wind, GORGEOUS subjects and a kiddo that wasn’t camera shy AT ALL lol 🙂 When we’re lucky enough to have all of those things, it makes it so much easier for me to focus on capturing the emotions and moments!

With Mothers Day coming up, and having two teenagers AND a brand new baby, I’ve been feeling ALL the mommy feels lately…my heart swells every day watching my big girls grow up and seeing my little one trying to figure things out and learn every day.  Seeing my twins as big sisters and seeing the baby so happy to be with them makes my heart explode.  But also seeing how quickly they all change every day and really knowing as a mom the hard truth about how fast time really does go by and not being able to stop it all at the same time is so heart wrenching sometimes!

So all of this was on my  mind going into this shoot – I wanted to capture their mommy-daughter relationship. I wanted to capture all of the little things that you don’t really realize you need to remember until your kids are as old as mine. The way your kids look at you like you’re the funniest thing ever when you make a goofy face, how hard they squeeze your head when they kiss you, the look of pure safety and comfort on their faces when they close their eyes and nuzzle into your chest when they’re trying to get warm, their pudgy little hands holding onto you…the way theyreally truly love you without end and how in their eyes you are completely flawless and perfect…to me, being a mother is truly the BEST thing to be.

I hope I was able to capture this for this mama 🙂 And I would love to do the same for all of you moms out there too! I know so many of us hate to be in pictures but it’s so important – what I would give to be able to go back and tell myself to get over my confidence issues and just have some photos taken like this! 

P.S. I also have gift certificates available! Prettily packaged and ready to gift (forward to your husbands for *hint hint*! 😉 )

I hope to see you soon!!

Big Sister! | Louisville KY Newborn Photographer & Family Photographer | Kelly Beach Photography

2016-03-16_00012016-03-16_00022016-03-16_00032016-03-16_00042016-03-16_00052016-03-16_00062016-03-16_0008I’m so excited to finally have my blog back up and running! Turns out it had a pretty bad malware infection :/ Such a pain! I have to give credit to Scott at NetCrafted.com – he is the genius who got us back up and running in one day at an awesome price! Photographer friends – if you have a WordPress blog and ever have any issues – you MUST contact him! Thanks Scott!!

So now I get to get back to showing you all of the fun photo sessions that I’ve been up to! I posted a preview of this session on Facebook but I couldn’t resist sharing the rest. This sweet little baby has the most excited, doting older sister (who I also got to photograph as a newborn!) She was so anxious to get pictures made with her baby sister 🙂 And she stole the show when it was feeding time – I adore the pictures of her putting the baby wrap on her head like a wedding veil and asking her daddy if he would marry her – melted my heart! 🙂

I just know these little ladies are gonna have lots of fun together as they get older and I’m excited to get to capture the first year of it!

J & J – Winter Maternity | Kelly Beach Photography | Louisville KY Newborn and Maternity Photos

So glad it wasn’t too cold for this sweet couples maternity photos! It was so great to get to be out “in the field” (literally lol) to take advantage of the gorgeous light so early in the winter! I was thinking while I was editing these how we encourage moms-to-be to do maternity pictures for themselves – to feel beautiful and celebrate such a huge event in their lives but then I thought, “how cool will it be when this little one grows up and is able to see how happy his or her parents were that they had this baby on the way??” I thought how neat it would have been if my own mother had had maternity pictures with me and my siblings 🙂 Just another reason maternity photos are such a good idea 🙂
