  • BellaVieve Photography | Kentucky Based Photographer


    Hey guys! I'm Bobbi Nannery of BellaVieve Photography! I am a professional photographer out of Bardstown, Kentucky. My main specialty is children and families, weddings are fun, but nothing beats photographing a fantastic kid or family. I cant even remember when i started taking pictures, because i was very little. With disposable camera in hand I would ride around on the farm with my grandparents taking images of the sky and landscape. As I reached high school I moved to wildlife photography, which I took with me to college where my study was Wildlife Management, but my passion for photography was strong, so in 2009 I graduated with a Bachelors of Fine Arts with an Emphasis in Photography. I took photos of wildlife for private collectors, where my work has been seen around  the world. After college I began getting clients for weddings, events, theater and everything under the sun! During this time I became a product photographer for 2 major online retailers, for 5 years I took images of products for people to buy, more than likely you've bought something that I photographed. My passion quickly grew stronger and I left my full-time gig as a product photographer and went for my dream! My daughter, who is almost 5 is my main model, and lets me experiment shoot ideas on her. She is a trooper, a sassy trooper.


    My favorite shoot so far with children is a most recent one, which I've been experimenting with my mirriorless Sony a7. The quality of that camera is amazing, put it together with an awesome kid and boom, you get a soft, fairy tale-ish image. The lighting during this shoot was amazing, it was sunset during a warm day in May. The planets aligned for the feeling I was trying to convey.


    Kids are honest and silly, and if they're having a bad day, they're going to let you know. This still doesn't stop me from getting them to have a good time, patience is something you have to have when photographing kids. These images of Bebe are a perfect example, she was feeling quite goofy, and I captured that perfectly.


    With my fine art background in photography, I like to try to tell a story through my images, and keep that fine art feel to them.

    Even when photographing children, I still try to capture the small details. Such as the flowers on this crown, and just changing up my positioning. I'm often all over the place, laying on the ground, up high, i like to move around.


    Kids are only kids for a short time. As I watch my baby grow, it makes me realize how little time we actually get to be kids, which fuels my drive to capture the innocence of  them. Let them be little, let them play, let them learn and experience life.

  • Krista Ann Photography


    My name is Krista I am a newborn/baby photographer in the state of Illinois. I have been taking pictures for almost 7 years now and I can honestly say that I love my job. My favorite sessions are for newborns. I have always loved the babies from being a nanny to working in a daycare in the infant room. There is something about new life it is such a miracle. The fresh smell of a newborn has to be my favorite thing in the whole wide world. Newborn sessions are calming for me. Its my time to do the thing that I love capturing special moments for families and being able to share that time with them. It never gets old seeing the parents stare at their new baby with so much love. The tears, the laughter the friendships I have made are all amazing. I am truly blessed to do what I love everyday.


    One of my favorite things about this job is reconnecting with old childhood friends. They come to me because they love my work and it is just awesome watching them as a parent holding their new little one. Not going to lie at times it makes me feel really old but also accomplished and happy with my life and how far I have come. This session was super special because I have known her since middle school. Watching her as a Mom is just amazing she’s the same friend I played with when I was little but now even more beautiful.

    I use studio lighting for all of my in studio sessions. When I shoot outside I use natural light and love to shoot towards sunset. Newborn sessions are extra special because I keep the studio at a warm temperature, usually around 80 degrees to keep the babies sleepy and happy. I also use the baby shusher, which is like a noise machine to keep them sleeping and comfortable. My studio is full of props and I provide everything when you have a session with me. I even have a changing table, diapers and wipes for the newborns. I want it to be like your home away from home comfortable and worry free. My style is definitely more natural I want the focus to be on the baby and not the props. I am mildly obsessed with neutral colors they are my jam. Also anything vintage and beaten up is usually my favorite prop. I will say it again I am truly blessed to be able to do what I love everyday and when people choose me to take pictures for them I am truly honored. This job is amazing!!!
