Newborn Evelyn Josephine | Family and Baby Photographer | Denver, Colorado

Welcome to the world, sweet Evie Jo!

Newborn babies are full of surprises - tiny smiles, unexpected giggles, and that firm little grip on your finger. :) I recently stopped by the home of newborn Evelyn Josephine (nicknamed Evie Jo by her adorable parents), and boy was I surprised by how angelic this little lady is!

Her mom and I slipped some angel wings on Evie's back, and just like magic I was able to soothe her into the most peaceful little pose. (Thank God for milk comas!)

Born in June, Evelyn has an exciting summer ahead of her! Before long, she'll be cooing and crawling. Being a newborn photographer is such an honor - I absolutely love being a part of a baby's first two weeks and capturing the sweetness of this stage of life.

Having a baby soon? Schedule your newborn session for the first two weeks of baby's birth to get these angelic poses! I offer custom photo sessions based on your interests, and I can easily set up a studio in your home, which my clients find is most comfortable for them and easiest for newborns. Contact me and let's chat!

*Angel wings sold by iFergoo on Amazon

Chris Stapleton | Live at Red Rocks Amphitheater | Colorado Music & Concert Photography

At the end of May I photographed soulful country star Chris Stapleton live at Red Rocks in Colorado. I was also asked to write a review of the show for Listen Up Denver, and you can read a portion of my review below! :) Also, enjoy a handful of these photos from the sold-out show that was for sure one for the books!! Starting out as a photographer in 2012, the first subject I learned to photograph was live music right here in Colorado. It has been such an honor to continue photographing the legendary musicians that pass through the Rocky Mountains. Although I've expanded my portfolio to weddings, families, and more, I will never stop photographing concerts and musicians! My passion and appreciation for music continues to be inspired by every band I photograph, and of course the front row seat is icing on the cake. ;) Enjoy and Happy Thursday!!

p.s. I'd love to hear what concert you're most looking forward to this summer! Who knows - I may be there taking pictures! Leave me a comment and let me know!

Chris Stapleton "All American Road Show" Tour - Red Rocks Amphitheater - May 24, 2017
Although he’s been receiving industry recognition for almost a decade (Stapleton was first nominated for a Grammy Award in 2009), , the humble family man who has quickly rose to the top of the charts in country music, is loved not only by country music fans but by fans of all genres.  His deep voice is full of soul and has roots that are reminiscent of Johnny CashMerle Haggardand the current Zac Brown of the Zac Brown Band.  Stapleton quickly sold-out two nights at Red Rocks this summer, which was certain to be recognized nationwide. Many fans traveled to Colorado to catch Stapleton at Red Rocks, while the rest of the crowd was made up of local fans of Country, Soul, and even Blues music.  We settled into our seats after a long wait in traffic to catch most of Brothers Osborne’s opening set.

You’d be hard-pressed to find a better way to kick off Summer than dancing with your friends at Red Rocks to Chris Stapleton’s signature hit, “Tennessee Whiskey.” And the chaser to our whiskey-soaked night was that amazing Colorado weather that is quickly becoming less of a secret.

While Chris and his wife, Morgane Stapleton, took us away with them on a romantic, yet rockin’ night of live music, the sold-out crowd kept the beers flowing and made sure the Stapleton’s knew they were among friends in Colorado.

Chris Stapleton may be known for that raspy, sexy voice of his, but his guitar playing is not to be overlooked. His entire band really impressed me and I’ll be looking out for their next stop in Colorado.

The Hueseman Family | City Park - Denver Colorado | Family Portrait Photographer

With 2 year-old Otto in tow, Jordan + Reanne recently met me at Denver's City Park for some springtime family photos! We got there right before sunset, and were blessed with great weather and a happy kiddo.

It was well into the shoot before the gummy bears no longer worked to get smiles from little Otto, but his playful attitude, adorable outfit, and total adoration of his parents made for some awesome photos. :)

This family is a repeat client of mine, and I always love when they want to have photos taken. They're such genuinely kind people, and watching their family grow has truly been a pleasure!!

Contact me to set up your own family photo session in Colorado! This is the time of year to do it, and I am bursting with awesome ideas for locations and poses. :)

Professional Headshots and Portraits | Denver Colorado Photographer

Doesn't it seem like we all know someone who is either looking for work, building their own business, trying to expand their network or climb up the corporate ladder?

One of the smartest things you can do as you grow in your career is to have a professional portrait taken. You should also update your headshot any time you make a big change to your look, OR to your job. Got a promotion? It's time to update that headshot! Want a promotion? It's time to update that headshot and show how serious you are about investing in your brand and your company.

Here are a few reasons why:

  1. Stand Out!
    Competition is fierce, both among start-up companies and among job-seekers. A great headshot makes you memorable, especially when taken by a professional who will help you capture your best self.
     
  2. Be Approachable.
    People like to talk with people they're familiar with. As silly as it may sound, a picture is worth a thousand words, and a nice photo of yourself will make you much more interesting to recruiters and clients.
     
  3. Be Taken Seriously.
    A professional photo (versus an iPhone photo) is high-resolution, so it will look good on any website or in print. The worst thing is when you have a nice photo of yourself, but it becomes pixelated and blurry once uploaded to a website. Make a great first impression with a quality photo of yourself, not an amateur one.
     
  4. Stay Memorable!
    Perhaps you've had a professional headshot taken before...but it's been years. It's time to get a new one! Recruiters and clients alike are constantly scoping us out online (whether on LinkedIn, your website, social media, etc.), and if your headshot seems outdated - it's obvious.

I can't stress enough the importance of having updated professional photos - it does wonders for your business and for your career outlook. So today, I encourage you to take a hard look at your current headshot, and ask yourself if it's time for an update.

When you're ready, contact me to schedule your photo session with KellYeah Photography! Headshots and portraits are one of my specialties! I love working with different people, finding the best location that matches your personality and industry, and capturing natural smiles that represent your best self. I really can't wait to help you gain confidence and grow in your career!

- ideas + recommendations for attire that will photograph well and match your style
- posing (all you have to do is show up!)
- location ideas - after learning about your goals, I'll come up with the perfect, unique location for your photos

** Group sessions offered at a discounted rate. If you have a team of 2 or more, scheduling your photo session at the same time is a great way to make sure everyone on your team has updated headshots that have a similar look & feel.

TIP - if you book with me before May 15, I'm offering an additional $25 discount!

Don't wait too long - your dream job or dream client could be waiting for you!! :)

National Pet Day | Denver Colorado Pet Portrait Photographer

Yesterday was National Pet Day! As a dog lover and dog mom of little husky Lu, I always get excited when my clients invite their pets to our photo shoots. If you're considering bringing a pet into your family, please consider rescuing! I rescued Lu when she was already full-grown and she could have been overlooked as people are more interested in puppies. Bringing her home was the best thing that ever happened to me! Here are some ways to keep animals top-of-mind throughout the year, and below are a couple photos of my furry best friend. :)

1. Adopt a pet from your local shelter or purebred rescue organization.

2. Volunteer at your local shelter.

3. Donate blankets, food and toys to a favorite animal welfare organization.

4. Organize a peaceful demonstration in front of your community pet store that sells pets from puppy or kitten mills.

5. Host a pet-friendly BBQ this spring.

6. Assist an ill, elderly or a financially struggling neighbor or friend by purchasing pet food, hay or needed items for their pets.

7. Buy your pet a fun new toy....or two...or five.

8. Hire KellYeah Photography for a fun pet-friendly photo shoot!
