Welcome Annie P!

I had the pleasure of shooting a newborn/family session with some great friends and clients last week. You might remember this family from their first baby's newborn session. Baby Maggie is a big sister now, to little Annie P. Annie is about 6 weeks old and was ever so fussy when we started the session, so we let her have a snack and take a load off for a bit :) In the meantime we did a lot of fun shots with big sis, mom and dad. Maggie and I were truly best friends by the end of the shoot. Once Annie did get to sleep, she was a dream. We moved her all over and she just slept through it all, basking in the warm afternoon sun. The outdoor weather suited her just fine :) Thank you guys for letting me spend the day with you and for your patience throughout the shoot. I think we captured some beautiful images of the whole family. And I couldn't resist sharing the last photo, last shot of the day. Maggie was still going strong! Enjoy some of my faves below.

Gator Family Fun

I shot a session with some of my favorite clients yesterday at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium. You all may remember my mini session with these guys last year. Well, about 5 minutes after we started we were hit with a torrential downpour, complete with booming thunder and lightning. But, we made the best of it and were still able to get some very cute shots of the whole family :) Three boys, all under the age of 5, is quite the handful for mom and dad. Good thing CKC brought the Smarties along!! They certainly came in handy. I had a ton of fun with you guys yesterday, so thanks for sticking it out! Enjoy some of my faves from the session.

Adorable Family Session

I did a session with some old friends last week and we had the best time, at least I did! I've known mama Stephanie for years and I just love her, but her two kids are pretty great as well :) Katy and Kyle are beautiful children and they seemed to have a bunch of fun during our shoot! While Kyle started to fade towards the end, Katy was still going strong, ending our session with a super fun bubble chase. We had some gorgeous sunset light and a bunch of colorful balloons to play around with, thanks to Steph for toting to the session. Some of my favorite shots of the day were of the kids running around with the balloons! Thanks you guys for putting up with the summer heat and pesky insects to make the shoot a success. Enjoy some of my faves from the session below :)

2010 Holiday Sessions

Well, its here......the 2010 Holiday Season....and I've finally made up my mind..... presenting the new 2010 Holiday Card Collection! I love these new styles!! They're sort of vintage, great subtle but cheerful tones and colors and lots of focus on the photos. Most of the colors are customizable, as is the greeting text, to suit your taste. Both the 2008 and 2009 collections are still available and can still be viewed online (2008) (2009). If you go back to view the 2009 cards, you'll see some images of hard samples that I received from clients last year. All three collections have wonderful things to offer and I'm positive that there is something for everyone. :) I have holiday session dates still available in September and October. If you are interested in booking a holiday session this season, please email me at ckclarke@ckcphotography.com. Act fast, as dates fill up fast!

Kathryn & Cody's Engagement Session

I had the privelege of shooting my sister in law's engagement session recently. We shot on the farm that her fiance's family owns just outside of town. Such a great location for a shoot! We got some really pretty shots of the two of them in their element. Thanks to you two for tolerating the sticky August heat and spurts of rain throughout our session. I also designed their wedding invitation, which I will be posting separately. It turned out beautifully! Here are some of my faves from the engagement session. Congratulations you guys! Can't wait for the wedding :)

Kathryn & Cody's Invitation

We did a beautiful 5 x 5 trifold wedding invitation for Kathryn & Cody's upcoming event. Gorgeous linen finish with accompanying Reply Card, Photo Return Address Label and Accommocations Card. I incorporated 3 of their wedding colors: Cocoa, Sage and Cream. The bride & groom were VERY happy with the finished products. These could also be used as Save the Dates :)
