Westin Phillip

On Thursday, October 2nd at 9:35pm we welcomed Westin Phillip into the world. Weighing in at 8lbs 10oz and 21.5 inches long. Before his arrival though we set out to work on his nursery. This room as with all the rooms in our home had to be gutted to the studs. So we took down all the walls, updated electric, hung new insulation and put the walls back up. Many hours were poured into this nursery. My before pictures are on a hard drive off site, but enough is enough I wanted to get these posted. Once I have a chance to get them I will update this post, but for now here is the after.

And I couldn’t forget the star of the show.  Mr. West just relaxing. 

Thank you for all the well wishes. Everyone is doing great. We are settling in and just enjoying getting to know our little guy.

The C Family

I got to see the C family again. I love watching families grow from year to year. This year we got to meet some new members of the family as well. A sweet baby cousin joined us along with her parents. Some of my favorites from their session.

 

 

Beach Sessions

Beach sessions are underway. We have been photographing so many amazing families. We have had quite a few returning clients and have been meeting some new ones as well. Summer is packed but I wouldn’t have it any other way. Here is a few of my favorites, you may notice I am having a love affair with the dunes this summer. The light is so yummy and they are just so pretty to shoot against. I have more to come as we complete ordering sessions.

 

And I leave you with a picture of me. It was taken by one of my amazing associate photographers. Thank you again Revee for the picture of my baby bump. I can’t wait to frame this for my little guys nursery.

Brandon: OCNJ Senior Session

I met with Brandon and his mom a few weeks ago to capture his senior pictures at one of their favorite places to vacation. It was a lot of fun. We got some great shots on the beach and then headed to the boardwalk to capture a picture in front of his favorite pizza shop, a Jersey Shore landmark, Manco and Manco.

Here are some of our favorites from his session.

Thank you Brandon and Teresa for a great session.

If you are interested in booking a portrait session at the Jersey Shore be sure to contact us as soon as possible. Session dates are booking fast and we would hate for you to miss out. 

 

Meet KGP’s Associate Photographers

As I anticipate the arrival of my little guy in October I have been preparing the studio for my absense. Well my partial abscense. I will still be here on a limited basis after the little guy arrives. I am taking a partial maternity leave. Meaning I will still be around to help with preparing your sessions as well as with your ordering process, but I am passing on the shooting to two amazing photographers. I have worked with Lindsay and Revee for some time now and they will be capturing your heirlooms to enjoy for years to come. They have signed on to work for KGP on a more regular basis starting in July. So if you book a session between October through January these amazing ladies will be photographing your sessions. They are also accepting clients before my leave and will be shooting throughout the summer as well. Now that we have expanded we will be running some exciting specials. Our first is for summer sessions. If you book a session during the month of July or August you will receive 25 complimentary custom designed holiday cards.* How amazing would it be to have your holiday cards done by September?

I have updated the website with information on the newest members of our team, but I wanted to also share the bios they wrote so you can learn a little bit more about thees amazing ladies.

Meet Revee:

At the core, I center my life around three things: faith, family and photography.
Faith - I live for Christ who forever saved me, ultimately striving to live out His Great Commission.
Family - It’s a whirlwind of love and adventure. here’s the short version. I married my best friend, Jules who I met through a missions trip in Senegal, Africa.  We are so thankful God brought us together so perfectly and love living life together.  Our daughter, Naomi, adds to our joy.  She provides us with constant entertainment and her infectious smile fills every place she goes.
Photography - Inspired by my mom’s photographic artistry, I began using her 1979 35mm Canon camera in high school capturing our family.  I further defined myself as an artist in college through classes and as JMU’s yearbook photography editor.  Even though I’m a financial professional by trade, I seek out every opportunity to dabble in photography, capturing timeless moments (weddings, engagements, family portraits, birthdays, etc).  There is something so amazing hitting pause through a camera and sharing images that are forever remembered at a much deeper level.

Meet Lindsay:

I started pursuing a career in photography after getting a Fine Art degree in painting. I was fascinated with the emotional pull that humans have in response to beauty: certain fleeting moments, when captured, can somehow distill a lifetime of experience into a moment of meaning. I previously used photography only as a means to help construct my paintings; now the photography itself is my chosen method of creating art. I can’t wait to capture your special moments. When I’m not shooting, I am usually pursuing some sort of adventure: I am an avid traveler, hiker, dancer, snowboarder, and language-learner.

It is a complete honor to add these ladies to the KGP team.

*The Fine Print: To qualify for our holiday card special Sessions must be booked by the end of July. Sessions can be scheduled from July 1st to August 31st.

Hello,
I would like to know your sitting fees etc. for a family portrait with
3 individual children photos as well. My wife and I both like casual
as opposed to posing for photos. One family portrait photo and the rest just
natural. We will be in Ocean City during the week of August 2nd-9th.

Thanks

Kevin
