Stella & Fiona: Kids Photography

These cute girls are among my favorites to photograph. Their mom is one of my biggest cheerleaders, who was a client first–then became a dear friend. She puts complete trust in me with her daughters portraits, and strokes my ego with way-too-kind words about my art.  I love that I get to help with the clothing coordination, and I simply love her style. But mostly I just love to photograph these beauties.


The girls are adorable, sweet, and courteous. What more could I ask?  This time, the dogs came along, and we were able to get them in a few shots, but they were so excited to explore the open field, it was hard to keep them still!

    What time of day did you do the photo shoot? You did a beautiful job!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Thank you! This was in the evening, about 5pm Texas time!

  6. This might sound cheesy, but….I admire your work above any other photographer I know! I love the way you capture light and color. I love that you have a style without being too stylized. It bugs me when people try to get so fancy with their photos that you can’t even tell who is IN the picture any more. You have helped make my work what it is! Slowly but surely, I’m getting better!

    • Kristen Duke says:

      Diana, that is just the sweetest thing I’ve heard, and that makes me so happy to hear! I do aim to capture joy, which sounds cheesy since it’s my blog name, but it’s reality!

  7. Melissa says:

    Darling pics. I love it when you post photo sessions! These girls are such cute sisters.

  8. What a fun session!!! Great job!
