finn. | newborn. | august 2016 | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY} NEWBORN PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet Finn.
Oh this precious boy completely melted my heart.
I love, love, love babies. LOVE THEM! And this is one of the (many) reasons I adore photographing newborns. But let's be honest - newborns can be a bit unpredictable so you never know just how a session is going to go. But this little man? He was the most snuggly, perfect, sleeping little angel you ever wanted to meet. I think he truly would have been content to let me photograph him all day long.

There's not much cuter than a baby in a basket, am I right?


Am I giving you baby fever yet? :)

How about now?!

This bible was his great-grandmother's. We opened it to a passage she had marked in Song of Solomon. This just might be my all-time favorite newborn image right here.


But as sweet as that is, seeing a newborn with their older siblings gets me every time. Lane is such a good big brother to Finn and so proud of him! I adore that Finn's little eyes are wide and alert in this shot! 


And the new little family of four. Perfection!

A huge congratulations to the Owsley family and thank you so much for allowing me to capture these priceless memories for you! I can't wait to see the boys grow!

abbey. | collins HS 2017 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the beautiful Abbey, a 2017 Collins High School senior!

We visited a brand new location for Abbey's senior session and I couldn't be more pleased with the results. The gorgeous, rustic background really complemented her so well!



See what I mean? 


 

And then we visited one of my favorite parks for a little sunset time. It absolutely made this already gorgeous girl glow!


Thank you, Abbey, for allowing me to capture these special images for you! I hope you have an incredible senior year!

david.| shelby county HS 2017 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet David!
David is a handsome, state championship winning, cross-country running, JROTC cadet who has a larger than life personality! I have honored to have known this young man (and his family!) for quite a few years as all three of my sons have all run with him at one point or another during the course of his tenure. The cross-country community is one of the most welcome ones we've ever experienced in sports so far and he and his family are just one of the reasons. He is a fabulous mentor and leader and I know that he's going to do even more amazing things his senior year.

And let's add to all that just how photogenic this young man is...



I mean honestly! And he does that serious face so well1

 


I had a ball with David and his mom Amy that night and they were troopers because truly it was one of the most hot, steamy nights of the year! This creek was welcome, I promise!

You might recall I mentioned his "larger than life" personality? Yep. Here it is! 
These are just the medals he claimed during the past year, including his state medals. As his mom says, "Running is his super power." And that's the truth!

Thank you so much for letting me be a small part of starting your senior year off right, David. I love your images and I hope you do, too!

barby. | shelby county HS 2017 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the beautiful Barby! 

She's the first of my new 2017 SENIORS and she is amazing!
Barby attends Shelby County High School and believe it or not, throws discus! I love that!
She completely rocked out her session and I'm so excited to share a few of the images with you.

We started shooting in downtown Shelbyville. Barby and her mom loved the idea of an urban setting (if you can call our downtown Urban ;)) and they really wanted to have some of our hometown be a part of her photos. We wandered around a bit and had a great time looking for beautiful spots with wonderful light....


I think we found it!

I love that they also brought fun props like umbrellas, balloons, bubbles and even pizza! Yes, PIZZA!

 

Our next stop was one of my favorite parks to capture a few wildflower and sunset shots. Her beautiful yellow dress was perfect for it!

 

And let me tell you, this girl is fierce!
I truly see this shot on a billboard! I adore it and all the attitude it possesses!

And the equation for a perfect ending to a fun session?
1 beautiful sunset + 1 gorgeous girl + party balloons = amazing silhouettes! 

Thank you, Barby (and Edy) for choosing me to capture these wonderful moments for you! It was a pleasure! May your senior year be all that you ever dreamed it to be!

walls family. | may 2016 | {KELLY GOREE PHOTOGRAPHY} FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the Walls Family!

I first had the privilege of meeting this awesome family when I photographed daughter Raven for her senior portraits last year. She is such a stunning girl, inside and out, and I was so excited when her mom mentioned that she wanted family portraits done as well! We finally made that happen and I am in love with them! 

This beautiful family made my job so easy last night! Aren't they gorgeous?! There's just something so classic about brick + black!

I honestly can't pick a favorite from their session but this might be one if I was forced to do so - I just love all the smiles in this image! 

We had to utilize quite a few sitting poses as little brother broke his ankle the day or so before our session! Yikes! But he was a real trouper and he made it really hard to notice!

He did amazing even t hought it was a bit of a struggle to maneuver around. But big sister was there to lend a hand. They were laughing as she was helping him up and collect his balance and the result was one of my favorite sibling images! She really got him to give a great smile!

Okay. I lied. I think THIS might be my favorite. Mike picked out this spot on his own because he really liked the green. It was a fantastic choice!

Thank you, Walls Family, for allowing me the honor of capturing your special moments once again! I loved our time together and hope we get to do it again soon!

caitlin. | mercy academy SENIOR. | HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. | SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the gorgeous Caitlin, a 2016 Mercy Academy Senior!! Caitlin was yet another recommendation of my beautiful senior, Raven - they are classmates together at Mercy - and I can't thank her enough for sending this young lady my way!

I took Caitlin to several of my favorite locations and we had a fantastic time! This girl is such an easy spirit with a stunning smile that made my work so easy - and FUN!




I think this just might become my signature shot! I LOVE taking this photo in the middle of the street - and you should see some of the looks we get! (Thank you, traffic, for working with us!)


I hope you have an amazing end to your senior year, Caitlin, and I selfishly hope that when the fall comes around again, you'll be a Transy Pioneer just like I was!
