sweet sweet summer | what's up

just a few favorites of some of the sweet faces i've been seeing lately... 

 this summer has been absolutely amazing for us so far but is going by a little more quickly than i'd like! 

 i have a few spots left for child + families for the last two weeks of august (one weekend spot and the rest are week day evenings) 

i'll also be booking four more late september and four more early october child + family sessions as well as mini sessions which will be announced here soon.

 if you'd like to be on my mailing list for first dibs on days/times before it's posted, 
please email kaley@kaleylein.com.

bella | one year session

you may remember this little beauty from when she was quite a bit smaller here...

sunshine, picking flowers, exploring downtown, + cake made for a pretty great session!

little miss bella is one now + even cuter and sweeter than before.

piper | child session

a late morning of wandering around a downtown street with this little sweetie isn't such a bad way to spend my time... 
miss piper, you're a doll! 


keyan | one year

i spent an afternoon with cutie pie keyan a few weeks back as he recently turned one! 

he's no stranger to the blog and you may remember him from the session i did with him as an itty bitty little dude and again from a session of him + his momma.
it's so amazing watching these little ones grow + capturing them at various stages. 
such a huge honor, i can't say it enough!

from lunch time to running around, reading books, and a little time out in the snow...
i love the real moments captured here and if you do too, 
get in touch for a lifestyle session! 
(cough cough hint hint...i want to do more of these!)

it's snowing again so let's talk spring...

This winter slowly went by and although it feels like it's going to be here forever,
let's ignore the fact that we have a snow storm coming and start thinking SPRING!

My first set of mini sessions for the year will be happening just as soon as the white stuff is gone and it starts turning green. 
Since an exact date/time for this is up in the air, I'm tentatively planning for late May - early June.

If you want to be sure to get a spot, sign up and we'll then pick an exact date/time once it starts getting pretty out there OR if you're still digging the snow, we can do a snowy session as well! (we'll just want to do it while it's still white before that icky transitional period)

This round of mini sessions will be child, family, or mom + me. 
I decided to do them all together since almost half of the mom + me sessions last year included some shots with dad anyways, but I still encourage a session with just mommas/grandmas/great-grandmas!
I'm booking a limited number so if you're interested, get in touch sooner than later. 
The next mini sessions will be mid-late summer and then again in the fall.  

Mini sessions are great for new clients who want to get a glimpse of what working with me is like and my current clients love them as a way to do a couple sessions through out the year in the different seasons.

I'm also filling up the calender for my regular sessions for the summer.
I'm booking two week day evening sessions per week as well as 1-2 Saturday late morning sessions.

I can't wait to get busy shooting again and look forward to another summer of hanging out with awesome people + capturing fun filled memories!

Stay warm + have a wonderful weekend!

winter wonderland | family session

my last session of 2013 was one of my favorites!

snow covered trees, a little fire, plaid, s'mores, hot chocolate, and lots of love...

it doesn't get a whole lot better than that!

*and while i lay a bit more low during the winter months, i loved this session so much i'd love to do some snowy day mini sessions so shoot me an email if you're interested!*


hello 2014!

the beginning of another year...

 as always, this one has just flown by but the best part is, it was the best year yet!
i couldn't thank all of my clients, family, friends, and fans enough for all of your continued support. i wouldn't be here without you!
thank you thank you thank you!
i'm leaving you with a look at some of my favorite images from 2013...
 (sorry for any repeats, i tried doing them in random order and forget i had used a few already when creating the storyboard)
here's to a wonderful 2014!
