Look how stinkin adorable!

As many of you know I LOVE MY JOB as a photographer but also my most recent job as a nanny. I am lucky enough to have the chance to help take care of these three little ones! Are they not just absolutely adorable?! Take a look at a few of these previews. Todays weather was perfect! So glad we got a chance to get out and get some shots before it gets too terribly hot out.

Bluebonnets & Beautiful Children

Can you say adorable? So in Texas bluebonnets (the state flower) bloom in the spring for about two weeks and then they are gone. So when Danielle had mentioned them I knew we just had to get out this weekend to get some shots of her two adorable kids in the fields. It was absolutely gorgeous and it seems that we were not the only ones who thought this weekend was the time to get the shots! Those fields are filled with families and photographers! Here is a little preview from the day.

Mr. Little Man

Meet Gannon. One of the cutest baby boys out there. I was the super lucky gal that got to spend an evening with this little guy last week and just HAD to take some shots. Just us hanging out on the living room rug. SUCH a great baby.

Kyle & Michelle- I LOVE HIM... but you already knew that...

The start of a long loving adventure we will take! Enjoy this first dive into the beautiful people of Texas! Keep your eyes peeled. You will soon meet many more adorable Texans.

2011 Review

Let me start by saying that this last month has FLOWN BY. I can't believe Feburary is around the corner and 2011 has already come and gone! I want to give a HUGE thanks to all of my clients of 2011! I am so thankful to have been apart of your lives this past year! Adorable children being born, great family sessions, as well as beautiful weddings and engagement sessions made for one great year.

2011 was a big year for Krc. Photography as well as for KRC herself becoming KRS. Moving down to Houston has been a HUGE adjustment and I dearly miss all of the amazing clients I have up north. While moving to a completely different part of the US is a major adjustment, I am so excited to see what Texas has in store for Krc. Photography. I hope all of you will continue to keep up with what is going on with Krc Photography and show your support for the new exciting changes that are to come. 

Thank you for all of your support over the last couple of years. I would not be where I am without all of you. I am greatful beyond words for the friendships I have built and the memories I have captured for you.

Josh & Cara are MARRIED!

I don't even know where to begin. Josh and Cara are such great people, separate and together. I have been so blessed to know both of them from college through Campus House and Greyhouse. 

As Bryan the best man so graciously put it; "Cara is the Tyra Banks of Women's Ministries" at Campus House. I have been so blessed by the presence of both of them over the last couple of years and could not be happier for them! 

Of course the wedding day was just absolutely gorgeous. I again do not do this often, but I think I am going to have to make a second post on this wedding. There were so many details and so many great opportunities for photos. For now you will just have to see some of my favorite shots of the gorgeous couple.

How do I get so lucky? I shoot beautiful people!

Chad & Sara

HUGE CONGRATS TO CHAD AND SARA! They have been engaged for just over a week now! How exciting for the two of them. I was so excited when I got the phone call that Chad was going to propose. As we secretly planned this surprise engagement session I couldn't help but be giddy for the two of them. Chad is my cousin and I couldn't be more happy for the two of them and to see this moment come for Chad and his family.

Fall is by far my favorite season and I made it back to Indiana just in time to enjoy the beauty of it. I am so glad Chad chose to have their session so quickly after the engagement timing it perfectly for this gorgeous weather!

Chad and Sara. I am so excited to be a part of your big day. I am so beyond happy for you and can't wait to see what God has in store for you two!! Enjoy your sneak peek.

Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Kelver

Saturday was gorgeous and the perfect day for yet another wedding. One of my closest friends, Ashley married her other half Josh on Saturday. This wedding fit the two of them perfectly. Ashley is one of the most caring, honest, loyal, and devoted people I know. I am filled with so much joy for the two of them and the celebration of their new life together. It took me a few days to get a few pictures together because there were so many I wanted you all to see. Enjoy this sneak peek of the new Mr. and Mrs. Joshua Kelver!

Love you guys! I am so very happy for you.

Mr. and Mrs. Heckman

Where do I begin? I have known both Brian and Jessica for quite some time. You may recall right over a year ago, Brian cleverly popped the question at Greyhouse and Jessica said yes! Now just one short year later and LOTS of planning, this beautiful wedding fell into place!

The journey of the day however was something else! La Porte had a tornado touch down just minutes before the ceremony was about to begin! Thankfully we were far from worry of the storm. The ceremony was moved inside due to the rain, but made for a gorgeous setting in the reception hall at Heston Hills. 

Following the ceremony, the rain stopped, the sky opened up, and we took advantage of getting some beautiful shots outside! We have the dear Lord to thank for that one!

Jessica and Brian- Thank you once again for the opportunity to photograph your wedding and be a part of your special day. It was absolutely beautiful! Despite the hiccup, everything was just wonderful! I hope you enjoy your preview and enjoy that honeymoon in Cancun!!!!

Everything went off without a hitch and the two celebrated a wonderful day with all of the family and friends they love! Congrats you two! Hope Seattle treated you well!!

Beps & Aaron!

Matchmaker, Matchmaker,
Make me a match,
Find me a find,
catch me a catch!

Now, I don't think I will quit my day job for this, but I must say... I don't think I could have sent any two more amazing people on a blind date, and have this beautiful outcome! Just take a look at this couple and this wedding! It was so far beyond anything I could have imagined it to be. It took place in Crown Point, Indiana and was truly a beautiful day!It was so difficult to choose which photos to share with you, so don't be surprised if I put some more up soon!! 

Kaity (my second shooter) with OMG Photography did an amazing job capturing the day! Be sure to check out some of her shots on her blog as well! This wedding was beyond beautiful!

Congrats Beps & Aaron! I am so happy for the two of you and I hope you enjoyed every moment in the sun in Jamaica!  LOVE YOU GUYS!

Cara and Josh

Seriously. Josh and Cara are such a fun couple! I had an absolute blast this late afternoon on our adventure at Greyhouse and Turkey Run. Not only are the two of them absolutely adorable individually, but they make SUCH a cute couple! O MY GOODNESS! Take a look yourself, look at this adorable-ness!
Also, please take notice to the creepy Greyhouse employee best known as AJ who is also one of two lucky guys who get to close with me on Tuesday nights at Greyhouse. You got your pic AJ!! Hope you love it!

Thank you Cara and Josh for such a fun evening and for introducing me to Turkey Run. So.Much.Fun.

Little Reagan is already four weeks old! Now, I know everyone thinks that their own child is the cutest one they have ever seen, BUT you know you have to agree with me when I say that Reagan is beyond adorable. I am so in love with this little bundle of joy! Take a look at some of her adorable pictures!

Today was our second session with Reagan. The first session we were very limited on time and we of course are on newborn baby time, so this second session today was so much more of a success and we had scads of time work with!

Kelly (mommy) and I have been in the photography program together at Purdue for the past four years. I was so excited when she asked me to take pictures of Reagan!

Congrats Tommy and Kelly. She is absolutely beautiful and you two are so very blessed!

2010.... here and gone!

I can't believe it is already over! Where did 2010 go? Looking back over the past year I could not be anymore thankful for the opportunities I have had. Krc. Photography has survived its first official year of business! So much has happened in just one year and there is so much to look forward to in 2011. 

I have been blessed with so many new opportunities and was able to experience so many new first's for the business. First destination wedding, first wedding magazine advertisement, first senior session, and the list goes on and on. None of what I have accomplished could have been done without the support of my friends, family, and most importantly clients! I don't think I could thank you enough for all you have done for me. I think the best kind of advertising to have is word of mouth and I am so thankful for every one of you for your continued praise of the work I do. You are the reason why I have had the opportunities I have had.

This year also has had its fair share of hiccups along the way, but I wouldn't change one moment of it. I have learned so much from session to session and client to client, while also having the opportunity to work along side some other awesome photographers. 2011 already has a lot in store for me and I can't wait for it all to begin! Thank you again for all of your support. I would not be where I am today without all of you.

Much Love

This weekend I had a moment to breathe amongst the craziness of my traveling to spend some time with family. Saturday started off nasty rainy, and turned into a beautiful day, so of course we took advantage of the weather and snapped some shots. Here are some shots from the weekend!

Great Grandpa Jerry and Great Grandma Terry having some Hannah Bean Time!

Silly Daddy.

Hayden's attempt at kissing baby brother! SO precious

I wonder what age these kids will be when they are finally all smiling and paying attention together for a shot.. and how many more siblings there will be in the mix.. :) Not to mention more playmates ie aunt Jac's little one to come!

Sorry I don't remember the name of it... but I did not feel like I was in Indiana for one second. Here are a quite a few shots from the day. I could not decide!!!!

Kristen & Myles are married!
Saturday I made my way up to Crown Point where there were plans for an outdoor wedding in front of the Lake County Court House. Little did we know that mother nature had other plans. Kristen and Myles wedding ended up taking place in the courthouse and it was beautiful!

Kristen and Myles are absolutely adorable together. The day had a few hiccups but the moment Myles saw his bride walk down the aisle his face said it all. The two of them are so in love and I am honored to have been able to shoot their wedding. Here is a sneak peek of a few shots from the day.

Soon to be... Mr. & Mrs. Brian Heckman

This weekend I had a e-session in downtown Lafayette with Brian and Jessica. The lovely couple will be getting hitched this next May. This couple is soo stinking adorable. Brian's proposal is one of those that guys say, "man he makes the rest of us look bad!".Sweet, clever, and priceless.

Quick recap of the proposal. So Brian got ahold of me a few weeks before proposing back in May, asking if I'd be around to snap some pictures for him. Little did I know it would be for a proposal!!! When he informed me of it all I couldn't wait to see it happen, and can I just say WOW!! Seeing two people sharing the one moment so many people dream of!!! It was priceless and absolutely adorable! Now that I told you about the engagement its only right to show it as well!

Enjoy the sneak peek of the e-session along with their special moment they shared with so many!

Saturday was the perfect day for a wedding! Sara and Jason got married at the Centre Meeting House at Morris Farms. The little chapel is just adorable and perfect for a small wedding. I have been so excited to shoot this wedding for awhile, one of the reasons being LOCATION LOCATION LOCATION!

The girls got ready at Salon Nouvea in Granger. (Great Salon for all you ladies out there... and gentlemen too)

The details of the day were just priceless. The programs were made as fans. BRILLIANT! And the flowers from Michael Angelos were GORGEOUS!! Not to mention.... the personal touches Sara put into the day. Shot glasses for her favorite ladies, adorable shoes for the girls at the reception, and so much more!

Not only were the toasts really great, but so were the people!

Congratulations Sara & Jason! I wish you happiness and love that lasts a lifetime. Enjoy your honeymoon!

Aruba Part 3- The Big Day!
So I said 3 posts for Aruba, but there will be ONE MORE following this one of just some of Aruba its self and Kaity and I hard at work along with some of my favorite randoms!! :) So enjoy this post! The wedding was absolutely beautiful, how could it not be!!!

The Details

The details.

A close friend of the bride's mother made the flip flops along with the streamer piece you see in the lower left. A bunch of the guests received the streamer before the ceremony so after the ceremony everyone could wave them in the air. The pieces are absolutely brilliant and adorable! Then they were used at the reception as seen here for table pieces!

The cake topper was used on the grandmother of the bride's cake then passed down to the family. That is ONE GREAT TRADITION.

The diamond necklace was the bride's mother's original diamond and the bride wore both necklaces on her wedding day.

The bride and groom each had a signature drink for the cocktail hour!

Confetti was thrown after the ceremony!!! HOW NEAT!!!! Made for one great picture!

Aruba Part 2

Aruba part 2- The second event they had planned was on my third night there. It was a gorgeous bbq on the beach. The food was delicious and the sights were breath-taking. After dinner, toasts began and everyone went around and said how they knew the bride & groom. This was one of my most memorable moments of the whole trip. It was so great to get to know everyone on a more personal level.

Aruba part 1

So this is part 1 of 3 for ARUBA BABY! June 5th-10th I was so unbelievably lucky to have my first destination wedding. Everything was beautiful! I had to continue to remind myself that I was truely in a paradise. It was definitely one of those pinch me moments ALL WEEK LONG. A HUGE thanks goes out to the Kilgore/Schmidt families for everything! I am thankful beyond words.

So..part one. I will start you off with the Kukoo Kunuku. The evening began with the whole group boarding the bus and taking a trip up to the lighthouse for a champagne toast at sunset. Can you say GORGEOUS!

After the toast we headed to dinner where everyone received their first FREE DRINK ticket. Each person got 1 ticket at each stop.(4 bar stops total)

The bus was probably my favorite part of the night. They played the best music set I have heard in a long time... With the exception of the reception set list....which I will tell you more about 2 Aruba posts from now.

The 3rd stop was at this bar where as you can see a million people made their mark where ever possible on the walls. The props were awesome and everyone (including myself) had a blast wearing them and dancing with them.

Matt and Jessica are Engaged!

I love these two! Jessica, a.k.a. JP( Jessica Palmer.. but not for long!!) and Matt, are good friends of mine who are getting married this fall!! I was so excited when I heard the news and even more excited when they asked me to take some engagement pictures for them! The day was beautiful and we had a blast in downtown Lafayette walking around the train station and by the court house.

Guys, I love you both and I could not be happier for the two of you! I love all the moments we spend together! CONGRATS AGAIN! Enjoy your sneak peek!!!

Spring is Here!

I think it is safe to say... SPRING IS HERE! I can't tell you how much I have looked forward to this spring. Life is going by so quickly and I don't feel like I even have time to breathe. So this past Friday I forced myself to take a moment and enjoy the beauty God has given us with this lovely spring weather. Hope you enjoy some of the spring pictures I took.

Mr. & Mrs. Rick Miller

Wow! What can I say? I am so blessed. I have the greatest job ever!! Yesterday I had the honor of photographing Jac and Rick's wedding. You may remember their engagement photos I did back in the fall in South Bend.
Saturday was perfect. Everything about the day was beautiful, not to mention the bride and groom especially! Jaclyn is one of my sister's closest friends and she feels like a sister to me. I could have not felt more greatful for the opportunity to share their day with them in this way. This couple is needless to say, an absolute blast to photograph.
Thank you Jac and Rick for everything! Rick WELCOME TO THE FAMILY! Hope you enjoy your preview and enjoy every moment in JAMAICA!!! love you both.

expressions are priceless whether joyful or goofy
