kaitlyn. | Collins HS 2016 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY}. FRANKFORT KENTUCKY.

Meet Kaitlyn, the absolutely beautiful cheerleading, Governor's School for the Arts-attending, new 2016 Collins High School SENIOR!!!

This girl is just amazing! She's smart, beautiful, funny and such a fun person to be around...and did I mention she's just a natural in front of the camera?!

Lately I've been having fun incorporating their graduation year of "2016" into at least one of their senior images. This brick road was just begging for a little chalk graffiti! 

 
I can't get enough of urban settings for senior shoots!I absolutely love all the color and architecture to be found! It makes for some really beautiful images!

The below shot was just one of those "happy accidents." I was having Kaitlyn wait a second while I adjusted some settings as we had just moved locations. I took this to check what I had done...and the result was just so beautiful.

Of course no urban location shoot is quite complete until we attempt that middle of the road shot! This is such a quaint area and we rocked it out! And those shoes? To die for!

I adored the whole Snow White meets Taylor Swift vibe that beautiful dress + red shoes delivered so where better to take such a shot than in a garden (inside the urban setting, believe it or not!).

I hope you love your images as much as I do, Kaitlyn! I had such a wonderful time taking them for you!

Meet Jacob, the handsome, cross-country running, new Collins High School 2016 SENIOR!

I love that this young man wanted to do a few of his senior photos at his high school. They have a beautiful campus (as you can see below) and we took advantage of it and the building itself!

Jacob has got such a great, easy-going personality and fabulous smile! He was so awesome to work with and I think we got some fantastic images to capture his senior year!

 

Seriously. How many schools have campuses this beautiful? So pretty!

Jacob, thank you so much for being a joy to work with and for choosing me to be your senior photographer! I hope you have an amazing senior year!

Meet Kyle, the  handsome, football playing new North Oldham High School SENIOR! 

I had the pleasure of meeting this young man out at his family home for a quick photo session to document his senior year. The light was absolutely gorgeous that night and we got some wonderful images.


 
I love that Kyle wore his suit for a few of  his photos. He looked so handsome!


Thank you so much much for allowing me to be a small part of your senior year, Kyle! It was an honor and I know you have an amazing future ahead of you!

sydney. | Collins HS 2016 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY}. SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the beautiful Sydney, a stunning National Champion dancer and new 2016 Collins High School SENIOR!!

We decided to do a little dance-inspired portion of Sydney's session and it was so much fun! I LOVE this costume!


Look how gorgeous this girl's smile is! She's such a beautiful young lady!

And this leap?! I die. I asked her to do something "dance-ish" (I'm SO technical!) and she did THIS! What?! I. LOVE. IT!

We finished her session in on of my favorite parks. These beautiful daisies just suit her sunny personality!

This girl definitely knows how to work a camera! The bottom photo we got just as a storm was about to roll in!
Thank you so much for choosing me as your senior photographer, Sydney! I loved my time with you and I hope you enjoy your photos!

anneli. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY} CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet Anneli!

This beautiful firecracker of a girl is the twelve-year-old little (or not so little!) sister of my gorgeous senior, Ruthie, from the last post. Miss Anneli is homeschooled and as such doesn't get the traditional school photos that most young people get. Instead she gets something even better - a teeny, mini session of her very own!

This girl is such a fashionista and hysterically funny! She kept us all laughing the entire session! I particularly adore this photo of her but she looks almost too grown up!



I am excited in a few years to do this sweet girl's senior session! She's a natural in front of the camera and loves everything about it!

I also love that we sneaked a few photos of Anneli and Ruthie together. They may just be some of my favorites as I adore sibling photos! Aren't they a gorgeous pair?


Thank you again, White family, for allowing me the honor of capturing two of your precious girls! It was such a pleasure!

ruthie. | Collins HS 2016 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

I don't even know where to begin to talk about Ruthie. This girl is just so unique and special in so many ways and I truly enjoyed every minute I spent with her and her wonderful family capturing her senior photos.

But really. Let's just start with this. Ruthie plays the harp....exquisitely. And I could have listened to her for hours. I absolutely love that she wanted some of her senior photos captured with "Melody"...and I may or may not have gone overboard playing around with it as it was a first for me!

And then let's talk about how much like a princess she looked in this gorgeous pink tulle dress. She just absolutely glowed. 


But she was just as comfortable in jeans or a casual dress out on a farm too...maybe even more so.

Then there was this sunset at the end of our session. I had a crazy idea to try a silhouette of Ruthie with her harp and I'm so very glad I did!

It was such an honor to be chosen to do these senior photos and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for bringing such bright light with you wherever you go!

lindsey. | Collins HS 2016 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the Lindsey, the beautiful, volleyball-playing Collins High School 2016 SENIOR!!!

I've known Lindsey's wonderful mom for a very long time. Back when I was still in the paper crafting industry, Sheila  was the sales rep for BasicGrey, the manufacturer I worked for. It was a bonus that she was also local and we would run into each other all the time at our local LSS.

Fast forward (many?!) years and her youngest baby girl is all grown up and now this gorgeous senior! I was so thrilled and honored Sheila asked me to be the one to capture Lindsey's images.

She has such a natural beauty inside and out.




This gorgeous country setting was just perfect for Lindsey. She was such a natural there...with a stunning smile!


Thank you again, Lindsey, for giving me the honor of capturing your senior photos. I have no doubt this will be an amazing year for you!

o'toole family. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY} FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY

Meet the O'Toole family.

I have known this amazing bunch since I was very small. Kathy (far left) was one of my childhood best friends and we spent practically every minute of every summer together for many years. I always wanted a family like theirs - funny, noisy, crazy and full of sibling love! I haven't seen them in ages so I was so thrilled when Kathy asked me to capture a few family images for her Dad's 80th birthday!

Aren't they an amazing looking bunch?!

You'd never guess this man was 80! They still look so much like I remember!


Thank you, O'Tooles, for making me one of your own for the night! I hope you love your potraits and VERY happy birthday, Mr. O! xo, k
