She is Going to be GREAT at Eight!!

My baby turns eight on Tuesday. This growing up thing really stinks. I think it’s the nostalgia that hurts. It feels like yesterday, but so much has happened since then. She still loves all things “girl”!! And at the same time can hold her own against any little dude. She is sugar, and she is spice. And I love her for being her!!! May she continue to be as happy as she was in her infancy. May she always be close to her family (me especially ;)), and may she continue to shine bright for all to see and experience!!

We love you , Lark. Happy Birthday, Doll!!

Kamee June End-of-Summer Sale

I know it’s the end of August. I know. I feel it. We are all back to school next Wednesday. My kids and I are in complete denial. We have had one of THE BEST summers EVER!! I normal do the annual sale in June, to be thematic and all, but the summer sun and fun was just too magnetizing; I told myself I would do it in my birthday month instead. Then I decided to celebrate myself and being alive for a WHOLE month. I decided to make it an August sale. Then we moved. Now it’s the end of August and I decided, “WHAT THE HECK!! It is always a good time for a great sale!!” So, the Kamee June summer sale is finally happening; mylegit half-yearly is happening; I AM just like Nordstrom!!! Eeeeee!! Kinda. Sorta. In my head. ;)

The sale is EVERYTHING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST AND ALL OF SEPTEMBER!!!

Now read the real post, but where it says that you have to book by the end of June it really means by the end of August!! ;) Then email me with questions or to get yourself booked!!! xxx

And now for the post written, ahem, two months ago. Sorry for the delay!!

I like to think I am a little, just a little like Nordstrom. They have a half yearly, so I copy them, and have one too. Something in June, because I am thematic that way, and something half yearly, in November!! I like the June one, because, it’s, well, June!!

When people first meet me they usually ask about the June bit, or they call me Ms June-thinking it’s my last name. Kamee June is a pretty cute name, right? Kamee isn’t even my given name, Kamaree is, and June isn’t my last name; it’s my middle name. I was named after my Grandma June. Then I am usually asked if I was born in June. Nope, July. Regardless, I love BOTH months!!

Anyway, enough about that, it’s June (August) and it’s Half-Yearly SALE time!!! Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, during the month of June is 20% off!!! (this is the part where you insert August and September!!!) Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in June (August/September), you just have to use it within the next year, so before June 2017 (August/September 2017) (weddings are a little different; we can extend them a bit if you aren’t getting married for a while, but know you want to take advantage of the sale). It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 20% off, remember EVERYTHING KJ is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 20% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $80 with the 20% discount!!), AND both wedding packages are 20% off as well!! That’s right, because all of me, loves all of you…can you tell I shoot weddings? ;) No, it’s because it’s JUNE (August)!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 20% deal (it will vary depending on what you purchase), and then you are set and we get to planning when you want to cash in (the balance is due the week we shoot, work together, gift cards will be sent over in pdf’s, or the month before you get married.)

So easy, just like finding the most perfect thing at the half yearly, and knowing it is supposed to be yours!

And because everything is better with a photograph here are a few from my brides and grooms from this summer! There have been so many more; I am working on their files now, and will post all that gorgeousness soon!

So excited to hear from all of you and be a part of your celebrating and memory making!! Much love, KJ

This sweet bride, Caroline, even wrote me the kindest testimonial!! Both she and David have hearts filled with GOLD!! I adore them!! She shared, “Kamee is one of those people you meet and never forget. From the first time I emailed her about a quote, her radiance and zest for life was apparent. Her love for photography transcends not only through the lens of her brilliant and unique work, but through all of her interactions with her clients as well. She is an absolute natural at what she does and has a true gift of making you feel comfortable from the second your photoshoot begins (something that is so unnatural for me!) Kamee is special. I never knew how crucial it was to find a photographer that you connect with, and Kamee is one of those people that you will walk away from feeling like you knew her your whole life. She will go the extra mile to get you know you and your story, just to ensure your photographs speak to it and your individual experiences. I can’t say enough great things about Kamee, she is truly one in a million. If you can do one thing with assurance through your wedding process, book her. It will be the best decision you make! Thank you will never be enough Kamee!”

Thank you so much Caroline and Dave!! You will always be so special to me! xx

Ohh!! One more I found of she and her gorgeous people!!

My Offspring in 2015

Has it really been since September since I posted? Sheesh! That’s just unacceptable. I am so sorry! Especially to all my brides and grooms, and clients! I have been busy shooting, teaching, mommy-ing, wife-ing, and living!! I apologize! I have so much to share!!!

I remember blogging regularly. Loving it. Sharing my little stories: my observations on life, love, and anything that made me laugh. I miss chronicling my life! I miss sharing all the gorgeous love stories I witness. I wish I had more time to share, here, publicly, all the romance I see and feel.

I also wish I had time to tell you more of the comedy, I call life; I wish.

If an effort to share something recent and dust off this blog of mine, these are the most current photographs of the fruit of my lions. ;) Gunnar now is ten and Larkin is seven. Both, are the loves of my life. I am so grateful they are mine; so grateful they are the only ones who have ever heard my heart beat from the inside.

I will be better. I will work harder to share more of the love I am so blessed to see so regularly. I am looking forward to 2016 and the blessings it brings to all I know, and all I meet.

For now, something from my heart:

Kamee June Annual June (ahem, kinda) Sale

Insert Addendum (added at beginning, not end):

I know it’s nearly August. I know. I know this post is two months late. It would take ages to explain where I have been and why I didn’t just click publish on this when it was ready…Whatever, it’s up now!! ;) AND, the legit half-yearly is happening, so I AM just like Nordstrom!!! Eeeeee!! Kinda. Sorta. In my head. ;)

So the sale is actually EVERYTHING DURING THE MONTH OF AUGUST!!! August because it’s two months after June, one month after July…

Now read the real post, but where it says that you have to book by the end of June it really means by the end of August!! ;) Then email me with questions or to get yourself booked!!! xxx

And now for the post written, ahem, two months ago. Sorry for the delay!!

I like to think I am a little, just a little like Nordstrom. They have a half yearly, so I copy them, and have one too. Something in June, because I am thematic that way, and something half yearly, in November!! I like the June one, because, it’s, well, June!!

When people first meet me they usually ask about the June bit, or they call me Ms June-thinking it’s my last name. Kamee June is a pretty cute name, right? Kamee isn’t even my given name, Kamaree is, and June isn’t my last name; it’s my middle name. I was named after my Grandma June. Then I am usually asked if I was born in June, nope, July. Regardless, I love BOTH months!!

Anyway, enough about that, it’s June and it’s Half-Yearly SALE time!!! Everything Kamee June, EVERYTHING, during the month of June is 20% off!!! (this is the part where you insert August!!!) Hoooray!!!! You do not have to use what you purchase in June (August), you just have to use it within the next year, so before June 2016 (August 2016) (weddings are a little different; we can extend them a bit if you aren’t getting married for a while, but know you want to take advantage of the sale). It’s easy, email me (kamee@kameejune.com) tell me what you would like to buy for 20% off, remember EVERYTHING is included: portrait sessions, one on one mentoring sessions, wedding weekends with KJ, KJ gift cards (also 20% off! Perfect for friends or family and a great deal for you!! Buy a $100 gift card for only $80 with the 20% discount!!), AND my wedding packages are 20% off as well!! That’s right, because all of me, loves all of you…can you tell I shot weddings? ;) No, it’s because it’s JUNE!!!! Hooray!!!! Pay your deposit to lock in the the 20% deal (it will vary depending on what you purchase), and then you are set and we get to planning when you want to cash in (the balance is due the week we shoot, work together, gift cards will be sent over in pdf’s, or the month before you get married.)

So easy, just like finding the most perfect thing at the half yearly!!

And because everything is better with a photograph here is one of one of my brides getting married this summer!! This was shot at her friend, Kara Keough Bosworth’s, wedding. Her big day is coming this summer, and I can’t wait!!!! In two weeks actually; I can’t wait Court!!!!!

So excited to hear from all of you and be a part of your celebrating and memory making!! Much love, KJ2015-05-29_0005 copy

Excited to hear from everyone!! Until then, happy June!!!

The Renaissance of Kamee June Photography

If you are still here, if you still read, if you still pop in on me, thank you! I am grateful.

I met a friend, last month, who used to read my blog before I was a photographer. Our sons were born at the same time and have “grown-up” cyber-ly together! She says she still stops by and feels sad when there isn’t anything new. It made my heart drop! For those of you who still come by to check on me, thank you! To those of you who are new, welcome! To those of you who never thought I would post again, get ready, ’cause, I am back!! I have much to share and have been keeping all the weddings I have shot the past two years under my hat, mainly because I wanted to share them properly, here, in this new space!! I love the work and art of making memories, and I am encouraged and inspired by this new site to share all of the gorgeous celebrations I have been a part of. I will be blogging regularly now! I promise! I also promise to write more. That is something I told myself I needed to do. The blog will remain a scope of professional mingled with tid-bits of personal.

IMG_4603

This new site has been in the works for over two years now. Not kidding. I had a strong momentum and then life, like it has a tendency to do, hit hard, and I needed to shelf this for a bit. My heart is full that is it ready, and it feels like a metaphorical rebirth on a certain level.

2014-07-02_0003

I would be remiss if I didn’t thank everyone who has been so helpful and patient during the process:

The ladies and gent of Wiley Valentine, Rachelle, Sarah, and Phil, who have worked tirelessly for these two years taking ideas, re-working them, taking new ideas, and finally creating this gorgeous place to display and showcase my work. Thank you for sharing your hearts and talents with me. Your patience was endless. Your company ranks among the top in customer care and also in producing a top- notch quality product. I felt taken care of, looked after, and knew you had my best interests, and those of my business in mind the entire process. Thank you, from my heart, for sharing your talents with me. Thank you for developing such a true reflection of who I am as an artist; I am thankful!!

 

2014-05-08_0001

We shot my head shots (Thank you Julie and Rebecca) nearly two years ago, and my promo video a year ago, May (Head on over to the experience page and check it out!! Not saying because it’s about me that it’s bomb, saying it’s bomb because Kale Fitch made it!!). It was one of my best days of my grown-up life, thanks to Kale Fitch of Kale Fitch Films, Ashley, Kenny, Amanda, and Jessica. Real World Palm Springs, FOREVER!! Kale, thank you for reminding me of so many things about myself through your lens. I am profoundly grateful for you and your talent. We should all make videos about ourselves; they are tremendous self confidence boosters!! :) Ashley, Kenny, Amanda, and Jess, thanks for showing up and doing everything you did to make that day a success. I love the memories we made! I can’t watch the video without thinking of us all, and worrying about Kale needing a helmet!!

IMG_5207

I am grateful for my friends and colleagues who looked at drafts and gave me honest feedback and who continuously pushed and still push me to reach my potential both personally and professionally each day: Ashley, Joy, Rebecca D., Julie, Amanda, Rebecca W., April E., Kate, Amber, Shannon A., Brooke, Kip, and Rachel Clare.

IMG_5628

A big thank you to Jaren for always believing in me and whatever dream or scheme I come up with. Thank you for supporting all the shooting, traveling, time away, and wacky ideas to build sets in the garage. I am grateful for your confidence in me, no matter what I want to be or do each day; thank you for believing I am good at it!

My kids, who probably associate their mom with the back of my head and a large computer screen, may you know you were always my first priority. May you feel it and remember nothing of Photoshop or Lightroom from your childhood!! Regardless of where I go, how many pictures I take, the memories I make with you two will ALWAYS, be my most favorite. Thank you for being my sweetest sweets.

2014-07-02_0002

My parents, my family, my friends, my neighbors, my dog (we got one), my clients, ALL OF YOU who have trusted me with your life’s most precious moments. Thank you!! Thank you, from my heart for sharing that with me! Thank you for flying me around the world to be there to celebrate. Thank you for trusting me to make those memories that would take you back in time and hug your hearts every time you look at them. Thank you for sharing my name with your friends and for widening my circle of not only clients but friends as well!! I am so very grateful for all the experiences and love I have been able to be a part of. Thank you a thousand times over!

2014-05-14_0049

Ahhhh! I am so happy it is up!! So happy to have a new place and space! So happy to share pretty pictures regularly now!! Cruise around and check out all the cool stuff built in to the site!! Sort through the galleries and look at all the pretty pictures and memories! Fire me off an email, share this new site on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, or Twitter; there are buttons for all of those things now too!!

Thank you for being a part of me and a part of Kamee June Photography! I am grateful for all the love, support, and encouragement you have shared and continue to share with me!!

IMG_5579

The site was supposed to launch June 1, because I am thematic that way, but the Gods of computer programming, backing-up, and switching servers had another plan: site will launch in my birthday month!!! ;) And for the entire month of July in honor of the new site, AND my birth I want to offer a gift to all of you!!!

Book anything with me, a portrait session or one of my wedding packages and you will get a complimentary 12×12 20 page Kamee June Signature album as a thank you gift AND 10% off whatever you are purchasing!!! Scoot on over to the info link to check out pricing; do the math, subtract 10% from the total, add an album (you will get an engagement album if you choose the wedding package that includes an album), click on contact and let’s set something up!!! Spread the word!! If you book AND get a friend to book I have even more to offer you! ;)

PS Brides if you pay up front, in full, that will be 20% off the total, PLUS the album!!! Happy Birthday to me!!! And Happy Wedding/Celebrating to all of us!!! The July/re-launch gift lasts this month, meaning you have to book in the month of July, but will have the full year to redeem the gift. (Don’t worry if your wedding date isn’t this year; we will sort it out!)  *Brides, email me if you have specific questions about dates, etc. Hit the contact button above and let’s set something up!!

Flash Sale: London’s Calling

Literally, this time next week I will be in London. It’s almost here. Feels like I am getting ready to go home. Happiness is a complete, utter understatement!

I am so excited for the work I have, so excited for the friends I will be able to spend time with, beside myself happy with the friend I am traveling with, and over the moon thrilled at the opportunity to meet new people and make memories together!! In honor of that feeling I am offering a London flash sale!! It will last for 48 hrs!! That will give us time to get your date set, all the details arranged and get you all booked for your portrait session or mentoring session before I need to be packed and headed over the pond!!

and…That’s how much I love YOU and LONDON!!!!

Also, if you are interested in booking a mentoring session I am going to be traveling with a friend who is a perfect model so we’ll have someone on hand to photograph and use for practice, and I can think of so many places where we can meet and discuss your business practices and goals, hopes and dreams, favorite London baked goods, stores you love to shop at, favorite colors…I digress…do you see how happy I am!!!??? All jokes in my pockets, I can think of many a quaint place for tea to meet to visit your business philosophies and how I can help you take them to the next level!!
