Lylliana turns 2!!

WOW! Lylliana was a such a cute little character. At the beginning of our 30 minute session she was a little timid, but it did not take too long until she was having a lot of fun with balloons, confetti, and her mom. I’m not sure Lylliana will go through a “terrible two’s” phase because she seemed so well behaved, but I know she will find fun in everything! I can’t get over how cute her outfit was; her mom did a great job in styling it! Enjoy these sneak peaks 🙂

Schneider Family (My mother’s side of the family)

I am SO EXCITED to share these photos for a few different reasons:

1) I LOVE MY FAMILY! I am so happy we are all together (well, currently I am stuck at college and they are together, but I’ll head back to see them soon)

2) The golden lighting in these photos is my favorite. I love catching the beautiful light right before the sun sets.

3) This is the pond and the boat on my property, and I would love to do more shoots here! Let me know if you are interested because this scene is especially perfect for couples and families.

Okay, now that you know the reasons for my excitement, I hope you enjoy looking at these pictures.

I would like to thank my friend Arlee for capturing the shot of my whole family, so that I could be in the picture!

Family Boat Session- Texas. Megan Kay Photography

LaFleur Boys

These boys were very gentlemanly for their age. They helped carry around my equipment and props and were very happy to do so. Garrett is a very dedicated Boy Scout- look at ALL those badges! I know he has to be good at what he does. His younger brother Wyatt is also a Boy Scout, and he plans to achieve all that his brother has and more! I really enjoyed the Americana feel that the Boy Scout uniform, American flag, and flannel shirts brought to the shoots. Enjoy this sneak peak 🙂

Caitlyn- Wills Point Senior

Caitlyn and I had a great session. She arrived with several outfits pre-arranged on hangers, and it allowed us to lose less time in between outfits. She made me aware of her preferred style, and we worked to cater her session around it. Caitlyn plans to attend Texas Woman’s University and study nursing. She is excited to be graduating early and start attending college in the spring! edIMG_2736edIMG_2647bwedIMG_2714edIMG_2779edIMG_2765edIMG_2811edIMG_2831edIMG_2863edIMG_2819edIMG_2894edIMG_2895edIM_12345

P.S. Here’s a little more about me:

I am a college student with a passion for photography. I attend a university in Denton, but my family’s residence is in the Rockwall area. I am working to finish college debt free, but plan to continue photography throughout my life. Here are some fun facts about me: 1) My middle name is Hawaiian, Kealoha (pronounced Kay- Aloha) and my business is named after that! It means “One who is loved.” 2) I am not at all Hawaiian (although, I sometimes I wish I was, who doesn’t love Hawaii?). 3) I am a competitive nerd, always striving to be the best. 4) I was valedictorian of my HS class. 5) I am newly allergic to milk and really miss chocolate. Whenever I find dark chocolate without milk, I get really excited.

Now for the important part:

Photography is my passion! When I’m not photographing for clients, I grab a friend or a sibling and set up another shoot. I think about how beautiful the scenery or lighting around me would look through a lens. I watch movies and admire the artistry behind the film making. I stay up late reading up on how to better my photography and even later when I get excited to put the new tips into practice. These few examples might all sound kind of crazy, but it is 100% true for me.

I have been photographing professionally for over one year now and have thoroughly enjoyed expanding my portfolio from kids, couples, babies, families, weddings, and my favorite, seniors. I love love LOVE Pinterest and recreating ideas my clients or I find.

I strive to show everyone how truly beautiful they are and to capture the joy and feelings of the subject; I want all my clients to be proud of how they look in each image. I work hard to tailor each session to the client’s desires and style before the shoot and after in digital editing and retouching.

I REALLY hope to get to know you and share my passion and love for this art with you!
