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!

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!

Fairy Princess Session | Louisville KY Photographer | Kelly Beach Photographer

I’ve been a photographer for going on about 8 years now and I have to say, this shoot was absolutely one of my very favorite that I’ve ever done. If not my very favorite so far 🙂 It is the result of a vision that her mom had in mind that was carefully planned (as in lots of hunting for dresses and flower crowns on etsy and choosing the perfect location and time), luck in getting seriously the most perfect weather possible and a very cooperative subject (who felt like a fairy princess in her gorgeous outfit – she wanted to see the pictures on the back of the camera at one point and after she saw them replied “Oh, I look so cute!! :)).  The rest was up to me and when everything else was so perfect already, it made my job a piece of cake!

These are the kinds of pictures that are classic – that will always be on display even when this little girl is an adult probably.  It’s why the investment is worth it – to have portraits that capture your children in these magical stages of their lives – so you can remember their happiness and playful spirits.  I’ve said it tons of times before, but it’s sessions like these especially that make me really LOVE my work and my art!

– Kelly
