I can hardly type the name DiMaggio without thinking about yummy DiMaggios Pizza…which reminds me, I would much rather eat out tonight than cooking…..

Anyway, back to this photoshoot!  I wasn’t sure if we were going to get to do any outside pictures on this particular day because it just rained all night and morning!  However, God must have been on their side (well, Joe is the new Campus Pastor at Orchardville Church, Fairfield Branch – whoot whoot!! – congrats!).  We started off with a studio session and lucky for us, we got to go outside and do some more shots.  I am so happy that the sun came out…I just love these outside images of their family!

Fall is here and so is October…which means that many of you are trying to find the perfect Halloween Costume to trick or treat in!  If you are like me, you often run to get your camera (or phone) to photograph your little one looking adorable or spooky in their costume right before trick or treating….and, usually you are in a hurry and ready to get out there.  We have a perfect setup for those wanting the picture perfect image to document this sweet little memory…and, you don’t even have to wait until Halloween night!

From now until Halloween, we will be accepting appointments for a quick and easy Halloween Session!  All you have to do is call (618-599-0819) or message (kimhinklephotography@gmail.com) or via Facebook and we can set up an appointment.  Don’t worry, this will be a super easy appointment and will most likely only take 5 minutes at the most!  It’s long enough to get a perfect smile or expression and short enough to keep your little one happy!  And, do you want to know what the best part of this is….for $25 you will receive a digital image with a print release!  Your image will be emailed to you and you are welcome to print whatever you would like to.  There is no need to wait until Halloween night, we can set up something anytime from now until October 31st on a weekday between 9am-5pm.

So, I don’t normally photograph weddings.  However, back in May, a super sweet couple came to me for pictures and Justin proposed during our session!  They were super sweet and made it so easy to work with them.   If every wedding was this beautiful, with a couple this sweet, I would sure photograph many more!  It was such a honor to play a part in both their engagement and their wedding.  Photography isn’t just about having pictures, it’s about preserving a memory….giving future generations a glimpse of where their family history began.   When I think about that….it’s pretty cool that God gave me the talent and ability to share with others.  Thanks for the opportunity, Justin & Chelsea…many wishes for a lifetime of happiness and may God Bless you both!

The engagement…

I had the opportunity recently to photograph this fun family!  They were real troopers having to be outside on a muggy Summer evening with mosquitos and all kinds of other lovely bugs which also wanted to have their picture taken.  They smiled, said silly things, told funny secrets and laughed.  I love to see the bond of a family…that’s good stuff right there.   Jeremy & his wife, Jamie are Pastors at The Bridge Church in Keenes, Illinois…which I hear is a booming church, where God is doing some awesome things!

Sweet little Sadie and her bright blue eyes!  This little gal sure didn’t disappoint….she sat perfectly and just smiled.  And, then I smiled….because, I always smile like a goober when I’m taking the pictures.  I also do a lot of other silly things that you only get to see during a photo session! There’s all kinds of perks.  😉2014-09-05_0005

Seriously, are these two not GORGEOUS??  I loved photographing these two!  There is sure something special about a bond between a mom and her baby girl.  I love their outfits…simple, but stylish.

We got really lucky with this session, because there was actually some thunder rolling in the distance as we were shooting these and then the sun just barely peeked out!

Sweet little Karsyn.  I love this little girl’s curls and her pretty blue eyes.  She was a lot of fun to photograph, especially when trying catch her kittens and run away from her horses (which you may see posted on FB later on)….which might I add, I ended up with a horse’s nose right on my camera!

One of the other things that I loved about this session was that it was real life!  She was just doing the things she would had normally been doing and we just happened to be able to stop time for a minute with my camera.   Great job, Miss Karsyn!
