FREE TRAINING VIDEO: Tips from Two Engagement Sessions

It’s a new month and we JUST released a brand new episode of KJ ALL ACCESS!! This month our members are getting to watch me photograph two very different engagement sessions! One session was shot on a bright, sunny day but we were surprised by a raging river and almost no option for a shooting location! The second shoot was beautiful but we were extremely crunched for daylight because it was abnormally dark and overcast!!

Evy’s Nursery

  • A Baby Pink Polka Dot Nursery

Well, I never thought that I would be the girl who blogged her child’s nursery AFTER her daughter’s 2nd birthday… but that is totally who I have become… and it’s ok. I think I’m lucky to have just FINISHED her nursery after what the last two years have brought us. When Evy was just 4 months old, we started our Hip Dysplasia journey with her left hip, and we entered our first round of being in “survival mode”. Our 8 hour sleeper turned into a little girl who didn’t know how to sleep in a hip brace and cried every hour.

The Workshop Experience

  • October 2018

Well you may wonder why I’m sharing about these two workshops from the fall in March…. that’s what happens when you are pregnant and then right after the workshops, you travel to speak at two conferences while simultaneously prepping to launch a massive Business Course for photographers. Oh, and help start a new service at your church and perform at a big Jazz Production that has five shows and then a couple of weeks later, it’s Christmas! Oh my gosh! What a whirlwind!
