Welcome to the new KensingtonPhotography.com

Welcome to the new KenstingtonPhotography.com!

As you can see we’ve made a few adjustments here and there. Enjoy the new site!
Thanks to my hubby Jamez for all the hard work and time he put into researching and coding he did to bring my vision to life.

And now onto this weeks preview!

This weeks preview is of  the adorable Vozar-Wilks cuties!
I love sibling sessions and these two had me smiling and laughing their entire session. While we didn’t get to accomplish everything that we wanted to thanks to a little rain – we still captured some adorable smiles. I cannot wait for our rain date!

Here’s some of my favorites from the day!

Coming next week…why they tell you working with your own kids is harder than working with someone else’s. (Aka my genius idea to try and attempt to put our 3 cats in a bathtub.) See you next week!

From the cliffs of Maryland to the riverside banks of the ‘Kiski River’

 Every senior session is as unique and wonderful as the senior as I am capturing. This week I had the pleasure of working with Jon who was up for anything and wanted to climb up and on everything in sight! Including a very high rail road bridge very early Saturday morning!

On a rail road bridge by a camp site that I’ve been dreaming of using for a shoot for a long time.

But despite all those dreams I seemed to forget somewhere along the line that the bridge, was rather high off the ground. While I am not afraid of heights…I am afraid of falling…from a very high bridge. Did I happen to mention that we were on a very high bridge? I had to keep reminding myself that if this bridge can hold a train surely it can hold two people, even if one of them is a klutz. That is afraid of falling… off a really high bridge.

But enough about me.

Jon was very fun to work with. He went along with any and all of my suggestions and even made some suggestions of his own, which always makes a session fun. He had a great smile and a great sense of humor. When capturing seniors I often try to capture several different emotions (serious, happy, softer smiles etc) but no matter my suggestions the best look for Jon was by far his smile. Which speaks volumes about a person. Thanks for allowing me to capture your senior pictures Jon.
Here’s a few shots from the day.

(This is one of my favorites)

Coming up next Sam’s two little cuties!

Shelby Povlick – Senior Portraits Part One

It’s finally here! My sister-in law is a SENIOR!
I feel as though I have been planning her senior session forever and yet somehow it all happened over night. 
Either way this is a very special session for me because I have used Miss Shelby as my  model for the last few years. I’ve put her on rail road tracks, dragged her out in the freezing cold and she’s done so willingly smiling all the while. It’s been fun! But finally we’re doing a session that is all her own and I’m so ecstatic to be capturing this exciting time of her life as she complete’s her senior year of high school.
Recently a cousin of ours was getting married out of town and so we took advantage and used the beautiful coastal area to capture some beach shots for the beginning of Shelby’s senior portraits.
We got up very early and drove, along with my brother in-law and husband down to Calvert State Park and hiked the most grueling 1.8 miles I have ever trekked in my entire life. It wasn’t the terrain that made this hike torturous, the trail was very well kept and it was a fairly level path, it was the inhabitants on the trail on the other hand that made that hike the longest 1.8 miles of my life. BUGS! KILLER BUGS! Attacked and swarmed us the entire trail. Biting and buzzing and covering our limbs the entire hike out to the cliffs! My arms look like something out the times of the plagues, covered in big red welts from our experience.  But it was all worth it in the end!  
 
Calvert State Park is stunning.
So bugs and all it was well worth it! Without further ado here are some shots from the day.
