Announcing sweet baby Amelia Mae ~ born in May
Now that Amelia is six-months-old, I'm returning to the field and taking assignments.
What a joy it has been to spend time with my littles and prepare for a third baby these past months. Lisa Kunkel Photography has been on maternity leave with no set date for full-time return. Committing to motherhood here. Of course I will not be able to abstain from photography all together. Keep in touch on Instagram and look for feature photos in the Greybull Standard weekly newspaper. We are currently not booking any portrait sessions or weddings.
Also...wanted to share these beautiful portraits done by Powell photographer Jill Ferguson. I hired her not only because it's hard taking a nice photo of yourself WITH two rambunctious children, but also because I value supporting other photographers. Jill was a joy to work with and I just love her style. She will also be visiting us in the hospital when baby joins the world. I am so looking forward to letting go of my need to document (for a moment) and handing over the reigns to another professional photographer.
So for now, I am soaking in every moment with my family of four and patiently preparing for five of us. Due date approaching quickly!
There has been a long break in posts here on the blog. I've had to scale back to accommodate being so sick during my third pregnancy (hyperemsis gravidarum, persistent full-term morning sickness.) But while there may not be new photos here, my Instagram feed is updated regularly. I encourage you to follow me on Instagram for my photographic take on daily life with two little ones, living in rural Wyoming. All iPhone photos. Here is a slice of my recent work.
The month of September -- and most of October -- I stepped away from photography to focus on my family. The main reason to be honest, I was tied down with extreme morning sickness! Yes, that's right, I'm pregnant. My husband JD and I are so joyful to announce that we are indeed adding another pumpkin to our patch.
It's poetic to me that my last blog post was about a newborn session I did with a longtime friend, Betsy. And now my mind is fluttering with ideas and the anticipation of getting to photography my own newborn in May. Big sister Adeline (almost 5) and soon-to-be big brother Wyatt (2)
Location: Private property in Greybull, Wyoming
Session: Children, pregnancy announcement
It is pure joy to photograph a newborn baby. They are small, delicate and bring back pleasant memories from my own newborns. I have known Betsy since we both attended school at the University of Montana. We reconnected in Helena in our adult lives and it's been an honor to document the growth of her family these last couple years. Congratulations to her and fiance Sean for welcoming Scout Darlene McCarthy into the family. She was born on May 23rd and was three weeks old during our newborn photo session. Please enjoy a collection of favorites from session, in their home, with big sisters Layla and Sadie.
