Telluride Family Portraits

Telluride Family Portraits by Kaycee Clark and Real Life Photographs

The lovely Strong Family visits Telluride every winter and I’ve had the pleasure of capturing this beautiful family every year! It’s such a blessing to be able to catch up and see how the kids have grown!  With Brett getting over the flu and having the weather not cooperate the entire week.  The last day they were here, the clouds parted and the flu subsided!  Although beautiful, it was very cold! But everyone braved the weather, especially the kiddos!!  You all were such super troopers!

High School Senior-WA

When I attended the University of Washington from 1996-2001, I landed the coolest job ever!  I was able to nanny for the most amazing family, who is still part of my chosen family to this day!  I was responsible for 2 adorable children, Maggie and Charlie.  When I started Maggie was two and a half and Charlie was 5 months.

This is us in my dorm room at the U, not the best quality photo but you get the point!  Cutest kids ever!

Ahhhh I love how you can see my autographed poster of John Stockton in the background!2014-07-21 13.41.05So this year Charlie graduated from High School and Maggie turned 21! Man, If that doesn’t make you feel older, I don’t know what does!  I was able to photograph Charlie’s senior photographs and then last month, they hired me again to update the artwork on their walls of their family!  More to share on that later! But here’s a great shot of all of us that Maggie’s friend Raquel captured with my camera-  Even Barley too!

My Clients and Friends- Clay and Myckal, who just moved into their gorgeous new home in Seattle just up from Golden Gardens asked me to come out this spring to photograph their beautiful family!  It was a typical Seattle rainy day so we stayed in doors and had some fun with this Seattle Family Session.

Enumclaw Family Photography

Jill is one of my best friends.  I’ve known her since the day after I was born- literally!  Our mothers roomed together in the hospital by chance and from that moment on we’ve been friends. Pretty Amazing to be friends with someone for 37 years! Meet Jillsy, one of my BFF’s 🙂

2013-07-16 11.16.36

Every year Jill and her gorgeous family come down to Ridgway, Colorado to visit and I always have the honor of photographing them while they’re here but this year just didn’t work out!  Luckily, I was able to sneak in a super fun shoot with the girls while I was home at my parents river property in Enumclaw, WA.  Jillsy did an amazing job styling this fun shoot!  Enjoy!  You should know I love these girls more than you will ever know!!  Love Auntie Kace

Enumclaw, WA Family Photography Sessions

Every May I leave the mud season of Colorado and head back to my home town of Enumclaw, WA.  My parents still live there in Enumclaw, AKA–the Claw, as well as my oldest sister and her family in Tacoma plus that’s where I went to college- UW and the Art Institute of Seattle.  So I’m always spoiled by good friends and family.  Plus, I started Real Life in Seattle in 2006 so I have a very cool client base there that I’m always super excited to catch up with!

I have had the amazing honor of photographing Kelsey and Tony’s family over the last 6 years!  We always bring out the bear skin rug(OK it’s not really bear:) and photograph each of their kiddos picture on it between 8-10 months!  So I’ve had this amazing honor 4 times!

Meet Ben!

Nicole + Robert to be married in Telluride, CO 2015

I was headed up to go camping for the night when my phone rang and it was Nicole!  I pulled over to the side of the road to chat.  We ended up talking for 45 minutes about how they were coming out to spend the week in Telluride, CO with family.  We talked about how they were looking to get married in Telluride, CO June of 2015.  We chatted about our love for the outdoors, mountain biking, camping, gardening, how we’re huggers( Yes, I’m a hugger:) and our aussie, cattle dog kiddos.

It was as if I was talking to one of my long time girl friends.

After their family time they were planning on sticking around just the 2 of them to camp, hike and mountain bike in the lovely San Juan Mountains.  So we planned to meet up to discuss the details of their wedding ……at their campsite! Plus an engagement session! How awesome is that? I got to have a wedding consultation at camp.  I was in heaven!

I knew it right there that we were going to be great friends!  Although it was too warm for a fire, we sat at the picnic table sharing photographs of our furry friends, music (a lot of common music interests), looked at my custom albums and how they saw their wedding in Telluride for next summer!

After 2 hours flew by we decided to meet up the following evening for their engagement photographs on Wilson Mesa.  Here are some of my favorites from the evening!

I’m so honored to be a part of your wedding celebration next summer in Telluride, CO! Hugs

Pregnancy and Family Photography Session in Telluride, Colorado

One of my best clients in Telluride, Colorado, who is also one of my besties- Dori, asked me to photograph her beautiful belly for baby Crowe #2!  Not knowing the sex of the baby of course I kept calling it a him.  If you didn’t know this about me, I am always wrong when guessing the sex of a baby. Always WRONG!! LOL! So by calling it a boy, we were all certain it was probably going to be a girl!!  Thank you so much for the absolute honor of being a part of your journey. I love you more than words can express.
