Introducing: Baby Logan!

I thank God for newborn sessions like Logan’s. He was perfect! It amazes me how tiny he was. I’m pretty sure he weighed at least 7lbs, but compared to Hudson weighing in at a whopping 9lbs, that’s TINY! He was so sleepy and cuddly I could have stayed there all day snuggling him. What a sweet blessing! Also, Sarah’s mom was there throughout the session and snagged a couple “behind the scenes” photos of me working. I thought it would be fun to share a couple! Looking at them reminded me just how much I LOVE my job!!

Sweet Maternity

I was SO excited when Criselda Sweet messaged me about maternity photos. I can’t even believe she’s having TWINS!! She definitely makes pregnancy look easy.  Her and Johnny are so thrilled to be welcoming a baby girl and boy into their home in a few short months. We had a blast downtown taking some “Sweet” photos of her baby bump, (I had to make a cheesy sweet joke at least once)! Feel free to Pin images you like!

Introducing: Mr. + Mrs. Fox

I waited over a year to photograph Katrina and Aaron’s wedding and all of that time anticipation built. Let me just say, their wedding did NOT disappoint! These two are such a fun-loving couple and their adoration for each other is undeniable. The Clayton on the Park proved the perfect venue for this couple’s big day providing some pretty awesome back drops for their photos! Congratulations Kat and Aaron Fox!!

Introducing: Beau Shooter

For those of you who remember, I was really diligent about working out during my pregnancy. BUT I have to credit Lindsey Shooter for it 100%! This sweet friend is starting a pregnancy personal training company called Preggercise. I was SO blessed to be one of her first clients and I truly believe our sessions contributed to my super easy delivery, (with a 9 pound baby mind you). Well I’m excited to introduce the newest member of her family, Beau Shooter! Isn’t he precious?! Not to mention his nursery might just be the best ever. Congrats DJ and Lindsey!!

Sometimes when you’re photographing a wedding you hit a sweet spot. The lighting is perfect, the setting lends itself for creativity, the couple is warmed up and looking GOOD. That’s what happened with this series of photos I snapped at Kat and Aaron’s wedding last month. Check it out.

Christmas 2013 and Typhoon Haiyan

The Giving. Jon and I planned to use all the money I made this year from Christmas photos for gifts for our family. I knew it wouldn’t be much because I didn’t want to take on that many sessions this year. Hudson is surprisingly needy and takes up a lot of my time 😉 However, after lots of prayer and some serious conversations we decided our money would be best used elsewhere. All of our friends and family have everything they need (and want for that matter), but in light of recent disasters that is not the case for most people around the world. Jon and I decided to give 100% of my profits this Christmas to the Red Cross for Typhoon Haiyan relief efforts and that’s exactly what we did. Thank you to everyone who booked sessions with me. YOU are the reason I was able to give this Christmas.

The Business. I want giving to set the tone for Keira Grace Photography in 2014. I’ve always wanted my business to be a part of something bigger and I’ve been relatively successful in doing so with Free Photos Free People. My prayer would be to use what God has blessed me with (my photography) to bless others in need. Three thousand dollars was raised last year to benefit victims of sex trafficking in India, Fiji, and right here in Phoenix, AZ. I would love to set a similar goal for 2014! I will keep you posted as opportunities to join me arise!

The Future. Next year is going to bring a lot of exciting new things for KGP- a new website, logo, style, focus…to name a few. The more I do photography, the more I see a need for something true. Something lovely and authentic. Something innocent that seals our most treasured moments in a way we never have before. I want 2014 to be an adventure. I want it to be a time for me to explore new avenues and I want you to join me. This creative process is going to take time and patience is not my strong suit, but I feel God calling me to something more and I can’t ignore it. I’m hoping you’ll be blessed by these efforts as well!

The Images.  Here are some images of the beautiful families I got to photograph this winter. These sweet faces have been through joy, struggles, anticipation, new beginnings, new life, and most importantly LOVE in 2013. I was so blessed to take their photos this Christmas season and want to THANK them for helping me give to the Philippines!
