Meet Kaeona

  • Meet Kaeona

This is a LONG post! I just couldn’t help it! I had the privilege of hanging out with the wonderful Sam and Kristen Kang and their new bundle of joy, Kaeona this afternoon. This was Inspired Designs’s  first “Newborn” session! Very exciting! I just couldn’t pick my favorites so I’m posting somewhere around 20 images!


The best part of today wasn’t using my new lens (which was awesome!) or setting up little backdrops, it was watching Sam and Kristen as parents for the first time.  They have officially been parents for one week and it’s a beautiful thing.  I hung out with Kristen for the first time during my freshman year of college. We sat in the “Bistro” and talked for what seemed like 5 minutes but in reality, was over an hour! Kristen has had an incredible impact on my life throughout the past two years and I’ve grown to love and respect her. Not only do I respect her, but also her relationship with Sam. I LOVED getting to see them be “Mom and Dad” for the first time. Kaeona is a lucky lucky girl to have such a great set of parents! She’s beautiful and precious! I feel honored to have done their first “family pictures”! Enjoy A LOT of my favorites! Congratulations Sam and Kristen!

Welcome to the world Kaeona!

    wow katelyn, you did an awesome job! and to have gotten such wonderful “infant” pictures takes a lot of wonderful talent. i remember when Chris and Kelly were that little….needless to say i don’t have any professional photos. they never were good and still and quiet when the cameras came around. lol. wonderful job!!!!!!! :-)
