Everyone, 
Meet Allie!
Oh my heart, this precious girl just wrapped me around her little finger from moment one! She was such a rock star at her photo session! I would have tucked her away in my suitcases and brought her home if I could!




I mean, really. Don't these eyes and that smile melt you!?
And these outfits?? She was too cute for words!! I hope we have many more sessions together as you grow up, Allie! I adored my time with you and your sweet mama!

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!

cole + gage. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

So let me just tell you a bit about this little man. This little man could very well have been the blue-eyed version of my oldest child at that age right down to the twinkle in his eyes and those overalls! And, boy oh boy, did I fall hard for him and that huge smile!

Even more, this little man has a pup - just like our pup - and that just made me adore him even more!
Cole had never had professional portraits taken so we absolutely had to remedy that...

Seriously - THAT FACE!!!
 

But the next item on the agenda was getting photos of him with his beautiful chocolate lab, Gage. They're a pair, after all...


I can't even handle the sweetness. They were both so awesome at their session and I look forward to seeing them grow as a pair for years to come!! Thank you, Lisa, for trusting me to take these precious photos of your boys!

jessi. | ballard HS 2016 SENIOR. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the beautiful Jessi, a 2016 Ballard High School Senior!

First, let me just say that I absolutely love when my seniors recommend me to their friends! It is the biggest compliment I can receive and it truly helps my little business grow more than anything *I* could do personally. So that's exactly how Jessi came to me! Her friend, Raven (from earlier in the summer) suggested that she come see me and I couldn't have been happier!

Wasn't this fall setting just perfect for her? We were running a bit out of fall color due to a rain the day before but I think we still managed to find enough fall to showcase this gorgeous girl!



Seniors in bright, pretty colors are my favorite! This pink blouse was just perfect to give Jessi a beautiful glow. I can't stop looking at this series of photos. I adore them!

 


Thank you so much, Jessi, for allowing me to have a small part of your senior year! I hope it's an amazing one for you!

dexter. | {KELLYGOREEPHOTOGRAPHY.} CHILD PHOTOGRAPHER. FRANKFORT KENTUCKY.

Oh how I love this sweet little family! Lori (on the right in the below photo) was the main reason my family has our awesome dog, Scout the Wonder Pup! She was his foster mama years ago and since then we have been so grateful to her and her wife, Cristal. It's been an honor getting to know them and share in their joy when their son Dexter joined their family! 

I've been photographing Dexie since he was just 6 months old and in October he was already 18 months! Which meant it was time once again to get a few photos of him and his mamas.

You can't tell by these photos but for the most part, Dexter wasn't having any part of me or my camera or photographs! All smiles are due to his mamas' crazy antics or the random puppy or squirrel that happened by! 

I quite literally this Lori might have been standing on her head for this sweet smile!

I'm so glad we kept on and persevered as these photos are truly priceless!



Thank you, Fox family, for trusting me to capture these images of your special little man! Bring on Birthday #2!

masterson family. | october 2015 | {KELLY GOREE PHOTOGRAPHY} FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER. LAGRANGE KENTUCKY.

Meet the amazing Masterson family! 
I was so thrilled to do this photo session as Melissa (the beauty second from the right in the below photo) and I went to high school together.  Melissa has always been a warrior but this awesome lady is also currently battling breast cancer. She had been wanting to have a family photo done at her parents' farm for quite a while and one Friday night this past October we made time to actually get it done!

Isn't this such a gorgeous farm? In later photos you'll see that the horses made an appearance along with the dog! It truly was a session for the ENTIRE family!

My family sessions always include a shot of mom + dad together! I don't think couples due this nearly enough!


Melissa + Andrew have four gorgeous kiddos! Their oldest, Ellie, goes to Sacred Heart just like her mom and I did!

And then the individual shots of this beautiful crew...
 

(That toothless smile slays me!)


Thank you so much, Melissa, for allowing me to capture these images for you! It was wonderful catching up with you again! Much love!

makayla. | shelby county HS SENIOR. | HIGH SCHOOL SENIOR PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY. SHELBYVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet Makayla, the absolutely beautiful, soccer-playing, football homecoming queen and 2016 Shelby County HS SENIOR!! 



This girl just glows and I'm so glad we had a spectacular October day to capture all the radiance that defines her. And truly? This gold dress couldn't have been more perfect.

 

I also think it was fabulous that she picked a much more casual outfit for her senior photos. It made them have an "easy-going" feel that I just love. I could have shot for hours in this beautiful light.

 

I so enjoyed my day with you, Makayla! I hope your senior year is a magical one for you!

kuhn family mini session | october 2015 | {KELLY GOREE PHOTOGRAPHY} FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER. LOUISVILLE KENTUCKY.

Meet the other of my favorite Kuhn families! If you couldn't tell just by looking, the handsome men in both Kuhn families are brothers! And goodnesss, what gorgeous families they have! This is also my second year with this group and boy have these kiddos grown!


I adore the bond these two share. A loves loves loves her little brother and is such an awesome big sister! And when she gets M to smile and they show those matching dimples, I die!

We're so fortunate we got these shots when we did because next year's photos are going to look so very different. Just a day or so after taking these images, Miss A lost her front tooth! 

Look at how they wanted a photo just like mom & dad's!


Thank you, Kuhn family, for allowing me to capture these precious images! I love the time I get to spend with you and can't wait to do it again next year!
