photographer

press pause on the endless busy and make moments that matter.

family is

EVERYTHING

I could go on and on about how much experience I have or how many families I have photographed over the years but the answer is really simple; I love my job.  Not only do I love being your photographer but I also love being a mama.



i can relate to you. 

Your threenager decided she wants to wear her ballet outfit to family photos?




Your toddler is shy and anxious around strangers? 

Dad isn't the biggest fan of family photos and doesn't understand why we have to do this?

it's okay, mama! you will remember her just as she was at this time

this is my Amelia girl to a T! I have some ways around this.

this is my life! but I promise Dad will walk away thinking family photos were fun

why choose kiralee?

AWESOME CUSTOMER SERVICE
I’m a perfectionist in how I serve my clients. Email responses and image turnaround will always be as speedy as possible! If you have a special deadline, I will try to honor it at no extra charge. That’s how I roll — you are important to me! 
PATIENCE
Kids do things on their own terms. As a child photographer, I expect this! I’m not upset when your three-year-old has a meltdown or when your son asks to take a picture with my camera. I simply love kids. 
YES, YOU’RE PHOTOGENIC!
All of the images you see in my portfolio feature REAL people, not models. Nobody comes into a session knowing what to do in front of the camera, so it’s my job to coach you! I’ll help you set up each pose and give you little tips to make you look your best. 
PROBLEMS SOLVER
With over 10 years of experience and 1,000+ sessions under my belt, I’m great at anticipating tricky situations and resolving them in advance. For example, I know that sessions go most smoothly if I win the trust of your kids first, so, usually, the first thing I do when I arrive for your session is get down on their level and play.
YOU’LL HAVE A PERSONAL STYLIST.
If you don’t have perfectly Pinterest-styled outfits, that’s TOTALLY OK! We can create gorgeous images no matter what you’re wearing. BUT, if you’re like me and love to plan, I’m happy to help! I’ll send you clothing tips and sample combos for inspiration, or you can even have me choose your outfits for you. 
I JUST LOVE YOU GUYS
When you work with me, you become my extended family. I’ll cheer with you when your baby graduates from kindergarten, and I’ll tear up if you move away from the valley. I’ve been photographing some of my clients since way back in 2012, and it’s been a joy and a privilege to watch their children grow and change.

Let the fun begin! Who knew that having your photo taken could be such a blast? We will spend the majority of your shoot goofing off and I will focus on your family interacting (sometimes as if I am not even there!)  I may even convince dad to crack a smile!

when all is said and done, I usually take around 2 weeks to edit your images. Once they are done, I send you a personalized link and from there, you can download and print all of your photos! YES. They are ALL yours to keep.  These are your memories, I want you to have them!

-Cobell Family, 2016

Amazing work!! Love all the pictures we have had taken!

-Seals Family, 2016

The best. We love the attention to detail in our photos. Not only did we get amazing pictures, but we had a blast hanging out with the girls. This is exactly what we were looking for and we will definitely be making appointments and recommending Kiralee In the future!!

Kiralee is so wonderful! She is so laid back and goes above and beyond to make your family feel comfortable! And the pictures are amazing! So glad we chose her to do our family photos

-Herset Family, 2015

Kiralee and Erin were both fabulous at our mini session, super friendly and easy to get along with while still being professional. We immediately felt very comfortable as did our two girls. We will definitely be back!
