Finn and his precious family traveled over 2 hours for his session today.   He was just as perfect as he looks and so content.  We had lots of fun with him and captured some really sweet family shots but I will share those after Mom and Dad see them. 🙂

Happy Memorial Day!!

    Thank you so much for capturing these precious shots. You are truly gifted and so sweet with Little Finn. We couldn’t be happier and can’t wait to see all of the pictures! Stacy & David

  • The little hannies praying up under his cheek are SO perfect! I think they made my heart skip a beat! Gorgeous as always!

  • I am still so AMAZED by YOU!!! LOVE every single shot!!! Gorgeous little baby too!!

Precious little Eliiet (just love her name!) was in the studio today for her newborn session.  She made us work but finally gave up and let us get lots of fun poses. 🙂  It was so fun shooting her session and remembering back to her brother’s newborn session I shot 14 months ago.  Enjoy her cuteness. 🙂

 

  • Oh, Kristen! The rich colors are SO amazing!! I love your use of colors!

Sweet Kate was in the studio yesterday and gave us lots of fun stuff.  She was 8lbs 12ozs at birth and had the most adorable little cheeks.  Here is a small sampling from her session. 🙂

My ever so popular Wee Wrap shown here in avocado.  Lots of colors available in my shop.

    You were so amazing with her. Love every picture. Will treasure these pictures forever. Thanks again so much. You are truly talented!!!

Anyone that knows me will say that newborn photography is my passion. I put every single ounce of my energy, patience and time into a newborn session to ensure that the gallery is full of yummy goodness.  I had the honor to mentor two amazing photographers this past week.  I was a little nervous because I had literally just moved into my new loft studio and had never shot a session there.  My light source is a different direction than my home studio so I was a little nervous.  I had not a single thing to be nervous about… my loft studio gets the most AMAZING light.  It’s so, so gorgeous.

I instantly connected with both of my mentorees (as I always do) and we had 2 full days of playing with newborns.  I had such a great time and feel with my whole heart that they both walked away inspired, confident and motivated.  I can’t wait for my next mentoring session next month. 🙂

Now on to the yummy goodness.  Both models were 10 days old the day we photographed them and both perfect angels.

Testimonial from one of my mentorees:

 

My mentoring session with Kristen Mackey of Son Kissed Photography has been a truly life-changing, awe-inspiring, and a genuine blessing in my career as a photographer. I cannot express it enough how happy I am that I used Kristen as my mentor. Our personalities are very similar and I knew that through our various emails conversations even before the mentoring. Kristen is the real deal and true professional and all around great individual. When I arrived, there was an instant connection; the conversations were constant and the learning was continuous. There were so many ‘awe-ha’ moments! I loved watching her work with the baby, she had this ability to calm the child in a way I’ve never seen before and I stood there in amazement. It was like the baby KNEW it was in good hands. The things I learned from her will forever change the way I take pictures and process images. Because I know more on how to get it right in the camera with newborns, my processing time and the steps I take in Photoshop has DRAMATICALLY decreased! I went in knowing I would learn a lot, but I guess I didn’t expect to leave feeling so confident. To me, being confident in your ability is half the battle.

 

I know Kristen will remain an inspiration to me and will be a friend for life. Her work is among the best I’ve ever seen and I’m so happy that God led me to her in such a way that has changed me. I have been forever blessed by Kristen and am truly honored to have learned from such a great talent.
