A River Series | Featuring Selah | 2017

A new series.  I have always loved the dark water just as the sun has gone beyond the horizon.  How the light dances on the ripples of black.  It has always been one of my favorite times to photograph my boys on the river. 

I was honored when Selah asked me to take her senior portraits and I knew she would be a beautiful candidate for this project.  Of course she was totally game when I explained my idea. I have always admired her confidence, her ability to push the envelope, her strength and most of all her intellect.  Here are just a few from our session (there were so many even before we got to the river that I will need another post later!).  Thank you Selah. xo


*Is this River Session something you could see yourself doing?  If so, message me at leekriel@gmail.com.  The season is changing, the water not as warm, but come early summer, the conditions would be ideal.  

Cousins | Avalon 2017 | Lifestyle Family Photography

A glimpse into a weekend spent with family.  These kids love hard.  And I got to sit back and watch.

p.s.  If you would like to hire me to capture posed images, with everyone looking + smiling, I am not the photographer for you.  To be honest, I suck at that (as you can tell from this shoot).  But if you like blue tongues, sticky fingers, sand in your hair, tears, grass stains, mohawks, and lots of messy love...I am happy to help you document it.  If you would like the aforementioned, I do have some amazing referrals in my back pocket just for you and I am happy to share their wonderful talents.
