{early morning sun, faint mists of fog and pie?}

I had a session on an early foggy Saturday morning, but that fog quickly faded as the sun rays filtered through the trees.  It was a hot and humid morning – the bees were buzzing, the birds were chirping and the ants were marching (that would be ‘red’ ants) ;-) .  As I unloaded the truck with all my props (I had a ton), early morning bike riders and walkers gave me inquisitive looks followed by friendly smiles.  I must’ve looked pretty silly lugging a suit case and what looked like the entire contents of a small apartment into the deep foggy forest.  One sweet elderly lady even pulled over and said with a smile, ’What in Tarnation?!’ okay she didn’t say those exact words, it was more like ‘oh my, what are you doing with all of this’?  She chuckled after I told her and said ‘looks like fun’.   Anyway, I was soon greeted by little Simmons, who’s 2 years old and her parents.  What a doll Simmons is!  She’s little, she’s fast and she hung in there well with all the humidity.  During the session she asked a couple of times for her ‘pie’ – I thought ‘hmm, pie – that’s something I didn’t bring to the session with me…’ but it sounded yummy.  Then her mom told me that’s what she calls her pacifier – so funny what each child calls it.  My kids called it their ‘pah-nue’…. I know, how can pacifier be shortened to pah-nue?  {shrug}.  Anyway, I had fun photographing Simmons and my favorite part was when she wanted me to hold her toward the end of the session – melted me.    Here’s a little peek at our morning.

{Tyler Made the Cover!}

Tyler made the cover of Kids Trends Weekly!  It’s the ‘Back to School’ issue and the information in this issues covers ’back to school’ products, style tidbits, tips and ideas for a smooth transition back to school, recipes and more.  Kids Trends is a great way for mom’s to be ‘in the know’ with a wide array of topics and the newest trends & products for your children (topics cover ages 5-9 years old, for under age 5 Tot Trends is a good resource). 

Here’s a picture of the cover.  Tyler being my funny boy.  When I told him about the cover this morning, he looked at me shyly with a little grin, then he quickly changed the subject.  So funny…

dawnSeptember 6, 2008 - 4:37 pm

Kara- I was playing on my computer & found your blog.. love it… great pics… Tyler is so cute in this shot! I’ll have to tell my boys (Will & Harrison) that they go to school with a superstar- they already think Tyler is a god for being in 5K- they also think it’s cool that they are in 4K this year & there are “little people” in 3K :) Great pics all over your blog- love your color.. see you around at school…

Love this shot of Tyler. One of my all time favorites

{dancing, digging and running from buzzing lil’ bugs}

It was a hot & humid Southern evening when I photographed these cute little blonde haired, blue eyed siblings. The gnats and maquitos tagged along throughout the session, but thankfully the kids were troopers and weren’t bothered too much by all the little buzzing bugs.  One little gnat flew right into little Jacqueline’s eye and she patiently held still while I carefully got it out, then she was right back to playing and dancing like a ballerina.   Yes, Jacqueline is very girly (I just love that) and once she got on the fluffy tutus and petticoats I brought, she was off dancing and prancing around showing me her cute and very graceful ballet moves.  Below is one of the several photos of her entranced in dance.  I love this age, when a child just gets wrapped up in a world of imagination and their feelings are released through play and acting out those feelings - Jacqueline’s reflected dance.  And her brother James, he just in awe by the trucks and tractors that were around.  He was on the move and determined to explore all things ‘boy’.  It was fun seeing what he wanted to search for next.  Here’s a little peak at our session. :)

jessica kettleAugust 23, 2008 - 12:41 am

hi kara! these are stunning. your color is beyond perfect! the shot with the umbrella is my favorite I think. I was actually wondering- do you have any favorite action sets for color processing or do you do your own? I am looking to try some new ones and just wondered if you could make a recommendation. if it’s secret though, that’s fine too! I really admire your work though, so I thought I’d ask. =) BTW- I grew up in Seattle (Redmond actually) Do you miss it? The south is so fun too though… Thanks for your help/ inspiration!

TanyaAugust 22, 2008 - 10:30 pm

Oh Kara, these are just gorgeous! love, love your pping!!! stunning children, i love them all!!!

HelenAugust 22, 2008 - 10:03 pm

BeckaAugust 22, 2008 - 5:44 pm

Your color is so perfect Kara! Cute little blondies, just adorable. That second photo is so cool, love that you can see the little girl blurred in the background. All of them are just stunning (as always).

amy woodAugust 22, 2008 - 5:43 pm

wow- these are so great- the little boy reminds me so much of my son!

Kathy CarlisleAugust 22, 2008 - 3:36 pm

These two are gorgeous. I love the umbrella one and the last one of the girl the best. Your colors as gorgeous as ever and there is so much life to the photos. Great job. kathy

{they’re growing up…}

Such a happy time and yet a part of me feels sad that my babies are growing up.  Today was their first day of school – Brielle in preschool and Tyler in Kindergarten.  They went to bed giddy and eager for the sun to rise all in anticipation of their first day of school at the same school – just two classrooms away from one another.  Tyler helped tuck Brielle in, gave her a kiss and a hug and then put his hand on her forehead, his face inches away from hers and quietly assured her that every morning he was going to walk her to her class room.  Oh my…so sweet and so grown up hearing him volunteer to accompany her class each day.  Part of me ached for a third baby seeing how they were hitting this milestone before I was emotionally ready. 
I was looking forward to waking them in the morning knowing how excited they were.  I remember my  ‘first day of school’ – the butterflies in my tummy, not wanting to eat because I was too excited to head off to school – I felt so grown up as each year passed.  I also remember what I wore on my first day of school {kindergarten}; a white ribbed tank top with a white knit sweater and a blue & green Scottish mini skirt, patent leather shoes and white cable-knit knee high socks.  I was so into my white knee highs and patent leather shoes – I even wore them riding my bike.  Anyway, Brielle confidently reached for her ballerina dress up clothes, her flower wings and her princess crown and before I knew it, she had them all on over her pajamas and proudly said ‘I’m going to be so beeutiful for my first day of school’ while she spun in circles and began to prance around the kitchen.  I was so close to just letting her go to school in her dress-up clothes.  But I managed to talk her into wearing another ‘beautiful’ dress explaining that her ballerina dress needed to be washed and would be waiting for her when she returned home later that day.   She was content.  Waving good-bye to the kids made me think of waving good-bye to them as they leave for college.  It’s a long ways off, I know, but they really do grow up too fast. 
Anyway, thanks for hanging in there and reading this post if you made it this far.  I’m sure many of you can relate – such a bitter sweet chapter of life.  Here’s just one of the pictures I took of them this morning- Tyler kissing Brielle on the cheek before leaving for school together…

Kara MayAugust 29, 2008 - 9:50 pm

Yes, crazy that I remember my outfit Courtney – maybe that’s a girl thing?! Glad I’m not alone ;) Thanks for your comments guys! My kiddos are my inspiration so I have to do posts about them – may be too many… lol. Love your comments!

courtneyAugust 29, 2008 - 9:35 am

Kara, I can so relate. I was going through files and came across my girls class pictures from preschool up until 2nd grade. I still can’t believe next week they start 3rd grade. It can’t be true. They really do grow up before your very eyes. I love your story about remembering your
first day of school and what you wore. It’s funny the things we remember. I remember my favorite outfits too. Yep….it all goes by to quickly.

nathalieAugust 26, 2008 - 7:47 pm

this is simply the sweetest photo! what an amazing big brother tyler is. i say again….you are blessed with beautiful children! this photo really captures their brother/sister relationship. i can tell these two will be inseparable.

Cheryl JohnsonAugust 26, 2008 - 9:47 am

so tender, its precious

david & kimi b- ohana photographersAugust 24, 2008 - 11:05 pm

i would so have a gigantical wall canvas made of this shot!!! wow!

JessAugust 24, 2008 - 12:34 am

I am dying over this shot. Stunning! This is for sure a canvas. Should be in a photo contest.

StephanieAugust 22, 2008 - 12:30 am

Oh. My. Goodness. This picture speaks VOLUMES! :D I absolutely love it, and I love, and agree with your words. Watching our kids grow up has got to be one of the most fulfilling, yet, hard things ever. School here doesn’t start until after Labor Day, but every day we get that much closer, and I’m not quite sure how I’ll handle having mine off and flying on their own…again..
Lovely post..

JenAugust 21, 2008 - 10:28 pm

Oh man – I will be there next year… and you are right, it’s too fast! Thanks for sharing the details of this sweet milestone. Your children will cherish this blog someday!

Rachel BrookeAugust 21, 2008 - 5:22 pm

sooo sweet. your kids are angels!

Allison GaulinAugust 21, 2008 - 12:59 pm

Kara, I don’t mean to sound all corny, but seriously, this made me tear up. My kids are all going to be in school this year, 3rd grade, kindergarten, and preschool. Time passes without us even knowing. Another summer gone, another school year here. Graduations, college, weddings, it’s only a blink away. I think I’ll go hug my little ones, sniff their summer smell, and squeeze them until they giggle.

Kris LeighAugust 21, 2008 - 12:49 am

Awww! Such an amazing image Kara! And I understand your bittersweet words, my big girl went to school for the first time this year and I think I cried more than she did, lol!

LindsayAugust 20, 2008 - 10:08 pm

I can so relate Kara. Thank you for sharing this with us all. I want to give your kids and you a hug after reading that sweet post. Amazing photo!!

PennyAugust 20, 2008 - 6:58 pm

This story depicts the inner sweetness of your children.
Good parents with wonderful kids.

MekennaAugust 20, 2008 - 6:29 pm


That is such a darling picture!

My mom gets sad when the first day of school rolls around, too. She says she cries after we leave.
Perfect, as always.

elizabethAugust 20, 2008 - 4:20 pm

Kara, first off this image is breathtaking. I can so relate to what you are speaking of!! I will be going through this same thing in a couple weeks :(

BeckaAugust 20, 2008 - 10:52 am

cable knit knee highs I loved mine too! thanks for giving us a peek into your world. you have a way with words making me feel like I was there. Your children are just precious and Tyler I can tell has such a big heart. Brielle in her play dress, I can just picture it. blessings to you and your family

JenniferAugust 20, 2008 - 10:18 am

Oh such a sweet story. I feel like I know your precious children. Lucky to have a mother who can capture tender moments and turn them into a work of art. Really want to see the beloved dress-up dress – please share.

ClarityAugust 20, 2008 - 12:23 am

I love it and I love you guys! What a sweet picture and a great re-enactment of your first day of school. These days really are too short. Hug them close and cherish this always.
