My Short Story package is my mini sessions. This beautiful family had 3 little girls that were stealing and running the show. My best piece of advice is before your shoot with me tell your littles Miss Kelly will be taking our photos of us and just smile through it all. I meet them in their world. We will play, we will move and we will laugh. I’ve learned cues from kids and I have my own little tricks and games that make them want to be there. Always remember it’s not your job to look “perfect” in front of my camera, it’s my job to capture YOU perfectly…as you are.

I get asked all the time if I like photographing family sessions with little kids and I absolutely love it! I love the messy and real moments, children running around being goofy, it makes me so happy. My goal for every session is to come as you are and just have fun. I want you to have an incredible experience and to walk away super exited for the photos your are going to get. I want you to look at the prints on the walls and remember the experience and the feeling you had.

Here is a recent family session I just did in Laguna Beach. ( One of my favorite spots to photograph at!)

Location: Laguna Beach, California

Choosing a wedding or elopement photographer is one of the hardest parts of planning your big day. Your images will be with you the rest of your life so you must love my style but I will also be with you your entire day so it is very important we mesh well.

Whether you go with me, Kelly Petrovski Photography, or someone else on your big day I have put together the top 10 questions you should ask your potential photographer:

  • What is included in each package? How do they differ?
  • Can we request certain shots we would like?
  • Do you offer retouching, color correcting or other corrective services?
  • How many events will you photograph that weekend?
  • What is your refund/cancellation policy?
  • If my event runs longer, will you stay? What is the fee for you to stay longer?
  • How would you describe your photography style?
  • Can we order prints or albums directly from you?
  • How long after the wedding will we receive the images? How will they be delivered?
  • How much of a deposit do you require? When is it due? Do you accept payment plans?

By asking these questions to your potential photographer you will get a better feel of who they are, what they stand for, what their style is and what their packages are. This will ensure you will get the quality of service you want on your wedding day! Are you still looking for your wedding photographer? Let’s Chat!

I got scuba certified when I was 13 and have been diving my whole life and I absolutley LOVE it. This was my husbands and nephews first time and I was just so giddy for them. We went with the best Lahaina Divers. Make sure to check them out when you head to Maui, Hawaii. We go with them every single time. Always a blast and such a  great crew. This was the beginners dive and we saw tons of fish, shipwreck, sharks and turtles!

I have a love/hate relationship with mini sessions or my “Short Story” sessions as I love to call them. As a mother I love them but as a photographer I don’t like them. I feel like I am throwing prompts out quickly and it goes by like BAM, BAM, BAM. I sometimes feel like I don’t have enough time to let the littles warm up to me. But like I said, as a mother I love them because it can sometimes feel chaotic trying to manage all the kids- I have 4 between the ages of 6 and 2.

As a photographer, I embrace the chaos like a warm hug and I believe that stage of life is beautiful and deserves to be photographed too.

What I usually do for littles is let them take charge and keep them moving. Let them play games with mom and dad. Or ask where they want to take photos. I gently tell moms and dads to just smile through it no matter what is happening.

 

Here is a Short Story session where the little girl was giving me the cheekiest little smiles. How cute is this family!?
