Like Father, Like Son | Branson Boys

Good evening, friends!

Katie here, and tonight I’m sharing some images from the Branson men’s photo session. Adam and I work at for the same automotive group and he wanted to do a session with his son. We took these back in October as a Christmas present for Adam’s mom, so we didn’t want to share any of them before and ruin the surprise.

We met at Lake Jacomo and had a lot of fun! Clark is one of the funniest little boys and was so much fun to work with! There were lots of smiles, giggles and of course funny faces. I hope you enjoy a sneak peek into this session this evening!

Bianculli Family!

Hello everyone, and welcome to our first blog post of 2019! It’s Liana, and I am so excited to be sharing this beautiful family with you all! All seven of them were troopers, and met me on Main Street in old town St. Charles at 8am, three days before Christmas! Needless to say, the weather was less than perfect, but it didn’t get their spirits down!

Courtney contacted me through Facebook, wanting to book a family session as a gift for her mom. Originally set to be eight people (family + significant others), Zach’s girlfriend Carrie unfortunately couldn’t make it, but he did bring his dog, Zeus! Seven humans and two dogs in total makes for a hilarious photo shoot! Thank goodness I still had dog bags in my pocket from leaving the house haha. We had a great time wandering around Main Street, and the Christmas decorations were the perfect touch! Check out the photos below <3

2018 Thank You!

Good evening everyone! Katie and Liana here tonight, and we just wanted to take a few moments out of the day to thank every single one of you for your continued support of K&L Photography <3 This year was our biggest yet, but we’ve got a lot of plans up our sleeves for 2019, and we’re hoping for an even bigger one next year!

When prepping for this post, I asked Katie to type up a quick thank you. I just read hers, and it sums up my feelings perfectly!

“This year has been a very busy and great year! I just want to personally thank each and every one of you for your help in making our business succeed. I’ve enjoyed getting to know and photograph all of our new, and returning, clients. Each session is always different, and always a good time! Without you, none of this would be possible. So, thank you and have a great and safe NYE.”

We wanted to post an image from each of our sessions we had, just to remind ourselves how lucky we are to do what we love <3

2018 Garden Glow!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I apologize for the late post! It’s been a crazy month, but we’re almost done and on to 2019! Tonight’s post is short and sweet. At the beginning of the month I had the chance to visit the Missouri Botanical Gardens, and the annual event they hold, Garden Glow! It features over 1,000,000 lights, turning the garden into a winter wonderland! It’s absolutely beautiful, and a joy to photograph. Check out a few photos below! :)

Next week we won’t be having a blog post, seeing as Christmas falls on Tuesday this year! We will, however, be blogging on New Year’s Eve! Merry Christmas everyone!

Boulevard Babes!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and let me get straight to the point- this blog post is FIRE. But! Before I get to those, a little backstory is required :P Ever since I moved home from AZ, I’ve been working at Boulevard Bride, a PHENOMENAL wedding dress boutique. However, they also sell top-of-the-line homecoming, gala, bridesmaids, and prom dresses! Every year, Jenn (the owner) loves to promote the prom dresses, and has a bunch of girls from the high schools in the area be prom reps!

This past week we had our first Boulevard Babes prom rep photo session, and it was AH.MAZ.ING. We got access to an emptied out store, and had a blast with it! The setting was perfect and everything came together so smoothly! The girls were absolute pros, and rocked every single dress, pose, and challenge! Check them out below!

Venodr Hi-Lite: Spoil Me Sweetly!

Hello all! Liana here, and I’m super excited to be sharing this blog! For a while, Katie and I have been throwing the idea around of doing some posts specifically highlighting some of our favorite wedding vendors in both the STL and KC areas! I can’t promise that this is going to be a regular thing, but we are working on a list to go ahead and start getting together with some of our favorites!

Today we are featuring the amazing Spoil Me Sweetly, which is owned and operated by my good friend, Abby Benz! Abby started her business several years ago as a side project, considering she has a full time job and teaches as well! This year, Abby made it a point to make Spoil Me Sweetly a little more of a full-time priority, and joined a commissary bakery in Chesterfield, called The Bakers Hub! It opened early November, and has been a huge success! Abby has so much talent and creativity that she brings into every single work she does, whether it be a wedding cake, custom cupcakes, cookies, or even donuts! We love working with Abby, and plan to work with her early next 2019 for a styled wedding shoot!

If you are ever in the area, make sure to check out The Bakers Hub! Or, if you just have an event that needs some sweet treats, contact her directly! Abby is always willing to bring your vision to life in dessert form. Check out her work over at www.spoilmesweetly.com! For now, check out some work we did for her recently to help her get some professional images up on her website!

Look who's ONE!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and tonight’s blog post is a little short (but definitely sweet). I’m sharing some images from my daughter, Ember’s, first birthday party! We had two separate parties, one in STL and one here in KC, and of course she was spoiled at both. They first party she was a little slow at eating the cake and she didn’t want to keep her headband on (second party was better), but before long she was tearing into it. It’s hard to believe that Ember is already one, and today she got her first tooth!!

I hope you enjoy these photos of our little one!

Introducing Annie & Keith Lebbing!

Good evening everyone! Sorry for the late post, but you know how hectic life can get around the holidays! It’s Liana here, and I know I’m speaking for both Katie and myself when I say we ended this year with a bang! Annie and Keith are one of the sweetest, most laid back couples we’ve ever worked with, and their wedding flew by! It was cold and windy, but Annie and Keith (or anyone else!) let it get them down! The best part of the day is when Annie and Keith saw their boys Shane and Lucas for the first time in their outfits! Their family photos in the cellars of Mount Pleasant will be some of our favorites for years to come <3 Check out all their perfect day below!

Future Mr. & Mrs. | Smart Engagement

Good evening, friends!

Katie here, and I’m so excited to be sharing some more images from Kyle and Chrystal’s engagement session from October! It was a cool afternoon at Capen Park in Columbia, Missouri but these two did great! We had to climb a little bit to get the views at the beginning, but we (thankfully) survived and the views were sooo worth it! AND they brought their pups, even better right?!

Kyle is my friend Paige’s brother in law, I photographed her maternity session a few years ago and actually photographed her wedding some years ago, so I’m very excited to be capturing Kyle and Chrystal’s special day next year!

I hope you enjoy tonight’s blog blog, stay tuned for their wedding day next year… I have a feeling it’s going to be fantastic!

<3 Katie
