HAPPY THANKSGIVING, Thank you...AND a "Black Friday" Deal from Kelly Goree Photography!!!

As the photography season starts to wind down for Kelly Goree Photography, I want to take a minute to let my wonderful clients and friends know just how truly thankful I am for each one of you.
I am so fortunate to get to do what I love and I am even more fortunate to have you all in my life and to capture precious moments for you. I don't take that honor lightly. It has been an amazing year for me - this year more than doubled my starting year last year - and I owe it all to YOU! THANK YOU for continuing to support me and love my work.

 Meet Cole, an amazing young man who is a new 2016 Shelby County High School SENIOR!!!

I took Cole to one of my favorite locations for senior guys because I am totally in love with the barns there. They made for the perfect backdrop for his session.


I truly enjoyed my time spent with this young man and his mom. Thank you so much, Cole (& Patty) for choosing me as your senior photographer! Wishing you the best senior year, Cole!

Meet Emma. She's a gorgeous, blonde-haired, blue-eyed beauty, member of the Army JROTC and new 2016 Collins High School Senior!

When Jamie's mom came to be about doing her senior photos, she was really excited about the idea of doing it at their new family home/farm. We took a visit so that I could see it and start gather ideas for what I might want to do. And as I pulled up, my jaw just dropped. They have the most spectacular little portion of this gorgeous earth all their own and it was just the perfect backdrop for Emma.

This girl is just so naturally beautiful.  She just glows.

Emma was game for almost anything but one thing she insisted on - her BOOTS! 

I think this might have been one of my top five favorite sessions and I know when I walked out of there that night I had made some great friends!. I only hope that one day they invite me back to sit on that dock with a glass of tea and a chat!

Thank you, Emma and Jamie, for allowing me to capture these moments for you.

I am so fortunate to do what I love to do and one of my favorite things about what I do is when friends become clients and clients become friends!

I was honored when earlier in the summer, a social aquaintance and now sweet friend Stephanie messaged me to ask about doing an extended family session. It was going to be a large group consisting of her family, her husband's three brothers and their families and his parents! They wanted it as a special Christmas present for her in-laws and I thought that was such an awesome idea! I think there ended up being 21 of them in all! 

We met up at the beautiful, historic Liberty Hall in Frankfort. Stephanie everyone coordinated in their beautiful blacks, reds and greys! Aren't they a gorgeous group??
This is Stephanie's lovely family! You will see more of that handsome young man in the center down the road - we also did an amazing senior session for him!

I think EVERY grandparent needs a photo of themselves with all their grandchildren and that's exactly what we got to capture here. I hope to have a photo like this myself one day.

The location was just so beautiful we also captured a few family images for everyone to use for their holiday cards! 

Thank you so much to all of your for allowing me to capture these memories for you! I hope you enjoy your photos!

Meet the lovely Presken family! This amazing family had their session in early October thinking we'd have wonderful weather, but alas, it was cloudy and cold all day long! They were such troopers toughing it out and I think we ended up with some amazing shots from the day!

But this one is hands down my favorite. I would would blow this one up on my wall as big as my husband would let me! 

 We even managed to find a few Black-eyed Susans hanging on to the summer with all their might.

And as much as I love the tall grass in the summer, I think I love it even more in the fall. The golden color is just so pretty!

Thank you, Presken family, for choosing me as your family photographer! I hope you love your images like I do!

I know my blog has been a bit quiet lately but I promise it's not because I haven't been busy. It's actually quite the opposite. I've been so fortunate to have had a wonderfully full fall season and am just coming up for air enough to show you all the beautiful images taken then. I plan on packing this blog from here on out for the forseeable future, so stay tuned!

First up, meet the adorable Miss Clara, a feisty, strawberry blonde four-year-old who is the complete apple of her parents' eye!
This little miss and I had a great time capturing a few images to document being four and for the annual holiday card!

This photo is my absolute favorite - that sweet smile and those clasped hands...I die!

This location was absolutely amazing. The beautiful brick and iron work really set off her hair and dress! 

Thank you to the Henderson family for allowing me to capture these beautiful images of Clara! Have a wonderful day!
