lenderman family

This family wanted some simple pictures of their small family in front of their Christmas tree so I headed over on Sunday.  They had pictures taken in front of their tree when they were pregnant with their first daughter and now that they are pregnant with their second they wanted another sweet :)  Daddy is a military man so he's not much on smiling!

delightful surprise!

This week brought a delightful surprise for Whitney Kelly Photography!

Stephens Media, the company who publishes the newspapers in Lonoke County, sponsored the 2009 Lonoke County Reader's Choice Readership Poll. A ballot was included with all the newspapers over the last month and people in the community were able to vote on "the best" of Lonoke County.

Whitney Kelly Photography was voted Best Photographer in the Stephens Media 2009 Lonoke County Reader's Choice Readership Poll.

Thanks to my clients and friends for voting! I am very grateful for the award :)

sibling love

A few weekends ago our cousin Wendy brought her three precious kids over for a quick photo session. Maggie and Graham love being behind the camera, as you can tell, but Emma Kate took a while to warm up. This session was pretty laid back, just playing in the front yard, but it was so fun to see the kids! Can't wait for our fall session :)

sweet newborn

I spent last weekend in Oklahoma City getting to know this precious newborn. Her mother is Katie, a best friend of mine, and our other three best friends were there to meet her too. She has four "aunts" that love her very much! I am completely in love...she is so precious!

custom frames!

I am excited to introduce a line of frames made exclusively for Whitney Kelly Photography and Park Street Market - cathryn and company. I am in love with these frames and plan on having a whole wall of them in our new house! cathryn and company takes custom orders for the frames - any size, color, more traditional look or a rustic, antiqued look.

Child or family pictures look super cute in these frames. Think collage. How cute?

Currently the 5X7 frames cost $70 and the 8X10 frames cost $80.

Let me know if you are interested in purchasing one of the frames pictured below or are interested in having a frame custom designed for your home!

In the past month or so I have decided to separate my personal blog posting from my photography blog posting. So, jump over to keeping up with the kellys, my new personal blog!

I'll continue to post here too about fun photography stuff so don't forget about this one!

Park Street Market has a HUGE announcement this week! We now offer online shopping at! I will start by saying that there isn't the whole store to choose from yet, but products will be added weekly. We are also having a super sale this week to clear up some space for our new items that we will purchase at market next weekend and those items will be added as soon as they arrive. Have I ever mentioned I love my job? I hope I enjoy teaching as much as I enjoy my little gift shop.

Along the theme of HUGE announcements, the Kelly's have one too (no, not babies)! We are set to close on our sale of this cute house next Friday (probably Monday at the rate the bank is going), which means we can start building the same day! We finally got word from our buyer's lender today that we can close next week. I am jumping out of my skin excited!

apple pie

Last Thanksgiving was my first holiday to contribute to the food spread (since I'm now married and that's what married people do) and my food assignment was a dessert. I was at a loss of what to bake. My mom gave me a recipe she had for Upside Down Apple Pie. It didn't seem that hard so I gave it a shot. My first apple pie was a tasty success! But it looked ugly. My father-in-law told me the only apple pie he would ever eat was his mother-in-law's and since she passed, he hadn't eaten apple pie...until mine, who cares what it looks like.

Ever since that day they all look ugly - the kicker - you put it together upside down and have to flip the pie after it cooks. Every time I flip, it always falls apart.

In an attempt to satisfy my father-in-law's cravings and to clean out my refrigerator before the big move, I spent Memorial Day afternoon baking. And voila! It didn't fall apart, was so pretty, and was supppper delicious!

While most of you will be out having fun celebrating the three day Memorial Day weekend, I will be doing this.

PACKING. Thankfully my gracious mother will be in town to help.

Think of me while you are at Riverfest, floating, or just having a grand ol' time. I would much rather be with you I'm sure. Packing, I've learned, gives me headaches. And an aching back.

But, I'm not complaining. My new house will so be worth it.

complete shock

I saw this photo online this morning and it made me laugh...thought I'd share. His facial expression says it all.

I will go on to say that Adam was a very talented singer and some of his performances were awesome, but I think his beliefs and morals may be a little far from what mine are. The cutie from Conway is humble, a good, wholesome Christian and I'm proud of America voting him as the next American Idol.

brighter than sunshine

As I sit and watch American Idol I am blinded by the pictures I'm editing. They are so bright! I haven't worked for the talented florist Tanarah in a few months and was excited to see what she had come up with for this wedding reception at the Clinton Library. I felt like I was at a Pleasant Grove highschool reunion...our colors were black and gold...although the gold always seemed to lean more on the yellow side than gold. That's beside the point.

(pause....announcing American Idol results)

AHHHHH! Kris Allen...from Arkansas....won!!!! Arkansas alone had 38 million votes. Amazing. I am so happy...although I probably shouldn't be this happy over a singing competition. But I am.

Kris Allen + Keith Urban...need I say more?

Ok. Back on track. Here's the pictures from Saturday.
