Ellie : CAKE SMASH

Ellie : CAKE SMASH

I LOVE MY CLIENTS!! I would say the bulk of my clients become great friends and Jess + Ben are such as these. From their engagement, to their wedding day, to their maternity and newborn....Now, Ms. Ellie is ONE and Jess challenged me to become a better photographer and host a milk bath in my kitchen! I am way out of the loop on this trend and we worked our magic with Jess' sense of style and fun flair with the photographic knowledge I've got in my tool belt. We had a blast and Ellie did fantastic every step of the way! Enjoy!

We first had to pay homage to their love of the Cubs with Ellie fitting in her newborn onesie she wore home from the hospital! 

Cake smash next!!

Next up after a cake smash? Time for a bath!!

Jess + Ben: Thank you for making me a better photographer, but more importantly, thanks for being such supportive and kind friends! I'm so excited to watch your family grow and change. Here's to future hugs at Lakewood as we bump into each other in the hallways, and GO CUBBIES!!

Blessings, 

Carrie

Oh, how dear this family is to me! With children practically exactly our own childrens' ages, they've become a family that is "in the trenches" with us. I love Amanda's sense of style, encouragement, and Trevor and Gerard talk golf and Dad Jokes all the time. They also need to educate me on how to be a Boy Mom-poor Loch just got his first dinosaur figure for his second birthday! Help! #delayedresponse 

Amanda's sense of great style bled into their family session when she suggested a new park for me to explore and I loved the textures and backdrops we made use of! Thanks friend! 

As much as I loved the shiplap backdrop, we also needed to get the classic sitting in the grass poses and snuggles: 

Definitely had to knock out a few of just Amanda and Trevor: it's been too long! 

I remember doing a photo similar to the one just above when they were just a family of three anticipating Blaine's arrival. What a joy it's been to capture your family, you guys! Here's to many more times round the sun together! 

Blessings, 

Carrie

I have photographed this sweet family (no pun intended) since there were far fewer grandchildren in the photos. I love that this family was flexible to move their start time up by 2 hours to avoid sweltering heat and maneuvered FOUR generations to an out-of-the-way park location on time. I'm so impressed!! Jason and Janene are the second-oldest generation in this group photo (Janene's mom and dad are on the left) and on down to eight grandchildren ranging from high school to age 3. Whew! What a group!

Individual family units and each great-grandchild: 

Always a pleasure Jason and Janene! You have a beautiful family both inside and out! Thank you so much for having me back again and again-what an honor to document four generations together. 

Blessings, 

Carrie

Ava : 4 Years Mini Session

Ava : 4 Years Mini Session

What a spitfire Ava is! We snuck in a quick mini session before I dim the lights on Carrie Krupke Photography till next summer (more info on that in a future post). We had just 20 minutes to spare and nabbed as many smiles as we possibly could in that timeframe. 

Happy 4th Birthday Ms. Ava!!

Blessings on the remainder of your summer and the upcoming school year!

This family has gently, but seemingly swiftly, come onto our family's radar for a myriad of reasons. First, Chris is Gerard's Principal, then I had the privilege of photographing their family, their daughter attended the same preschool as our children, and now, this fall, Chris will be my Principal as I begin this Digital Photography class at NHS. Beth has been such an incredible resource for me in developing how I want the culture of my class to develop, what order to teach certain concepts...the list goes on and on. Gerard & I admire who they are as educators, parents and how they love as each other's "lobsters" as Beth would say. 
 

But I digress-here are their downtown photos that were a blast to shoot: 

For a change of scenery, we headed to the opposite side of downtown and I love this family's playfulness. I can only imagine the antics that occur within their home's four walls!

Like I said, folks, the antics...;) 

Chris + Beth: Thank you for who you are as a couple, as a family, as educators and most importantly, as friends. Thank you for your flexibility in scheduling and for how committed you are to making awesome photographic ideas come to life. 

Blessings, 

Carrie
