This year has been such a blessing, filled with small joys, meeting wonderful new people and sharing my love of photography with the world. Part of that blessing has been being able to share my photography with people that are so special in our lives. I have photographed so many wonderful people this year including many friends who touch our lives daily. When I get the chance to photograph the people in who are so close to us it feels like a treat! This session is one of those treats. Although I am not very close to this sweet family they are a big part of my life. Kara and Logan are the grandchildren of my son’s daycare provider. She is an amazing woman and with the help of her husband(lovingly knows as “Pa”) and so many family members who come to visit we feel lucky to have found such a wonderful place for him to be. So, even though I don’t get to see these two much I have noticed that they get to hang with Jackson and he seems to LOVE having them around! For this reason they are special to me:)
This is how the session started and I knew right then it was going to be fun.
Full of smiles!
These two were a breeze to photograph. I mean check out the next two images. LOVE!
I know this is similar to the one above, but I just love the color in it:)
Talk about color…look at those baby blues. Kara you are beautiful!
Again, all smiles:)
Mom got in on a few too.
And because I adore this set of images I saved it for last. Logan rocked these, even with Kara standing behind me making faces(hence the middle image). Like I said two amazing, funny kids(sorry Logan, you are still a kid to me..haha). Thanks for a great afternoon!

One of my favorite things is when I really get to know a family. I love starting with a newborn and following them through their first year! Getting to know the family and their new addition is such a pleasure. This little beauty is one of those special situations and seeing her grow up in front of the camera is so much fun!
If you haven’t see her at 2 months check it out HERE.
She is growing into a gorgeous little girl. Here eyes seem to be changing and she is sitting up.
We are a little shy of her 6 month birthday, but we wanted to get things in before the holidays. Isn’t she like a perfect little baby doll:)
You may remember this one from her sneak peek.
A little holiday cheer!

This session was super fun. Not only is Aimee a dear friend, but Aidan, her son, is full of personality. He had us laughing until the end. This one is a favorite.
Isn’t he sweet with his pretty Mom:)
A few with Dad:)
I love this one because it is so in the moment. Sweet Valentine was just excited and couldn’t sit still. She loves Aidan and Aimee!
I finally did get a few of her at the end!
Aidan was so great. These are some of my favorites of him.

With the holiday season in full swing now is the time to take advantage of our new exciting adventure.
Kristie Bradley Photography now has a storefront at Tiny Prints!
We have partnered with Tiny Prints this year to help with the ordering and printing of your Holiday cards.
Tiny Prints is a leading retailer of premium personalized holiday photo cards and has been recognized for their high quality prints
and unmatched customer service. Each card ordered is also hand reviewed before it’s printed to ensure quality and accuracy.
To start your order through Tiny Prints, please click on the link below which will lead you to our co-branded Tiny Prints Storefront.
From here, you can shop for any product on the Tiny Prints site or review a few of our favorite choices.
There are THREE great ways to use this storefront. Check it out by clicking the link below
and then read on to see how you can work with us to create your beautiful holiday card.
As I mentioned above there are a few different ways to utilize our storefront.
1) Escrow System – Image Released, Uploaded and ready to use for your Holiday Card ONLY
This system is a way for us to release the images directly to your Tiny Prints account to order a card for a special licensing fee of $25. It will also include a small attribution for our studio on the back of the card, which is part of this reduced licensing fee. You will not have access to the original image file as part of this system, but will be able to use it on the card of your choice.
When you are ready to order, please let us know and we will upload your chosen photo(s) into the Tiny Prints Escrow system. We will then send you a unique code for each image, which you can use in the card creation process in the “add a photo” stage to retrieve that image into your personal Tiny Prints account. Once you have retrieved the image, you can use it on any card for up to 30 days. Your card will be printed with the high resolution version of the photo, but you will not access to that file.
2) Use Images already Purchased from Kristie Bradley Photography (i.e. released on CD)
If you have purchased images from KBP please use our storefront to create your card(you have access to ALL cards just click on the link and start from our storefront). By going through the KBP Storefront it guarantees that copyright will be given on the back of the card attribute.
When you are ready to order please click on the link below which will lead you to our co-branded Tiny Prints Storefront page. From here, you can shop for any product on the Tiny Prints site or review a few of our favorite choices and then use the photography that you have purchased from us.
3) Order any card from Tiny Prints KBP Storefront!
**Studio Attribution – Clicking on our co-branded Tiny Prints Storefront also ensures that we receive credit for referring a customer to Tiny Prints. This includes our studio name on the back of the cards that you order with a small text based attribution. If you have a concern with our studio name being printed on the back of your cards, you have the option of removing it in the card preview section. The text-based attribution is small, fits in well with the design on the back of the card and is movable.

Sarah is the daughter of one of my closest coworkers. To be a part of her wedding day is such an honor. After meeting Jonathon and spending time with the both of them for their engagement shoot I am even more excited for their wedding! We had a little fun with some vintage sodas(thanks to Jonathon’s creative bottle opening skills).
I just love the model looks in these next two:)
Sarah you are going to make a beautiful bride!
I think this images is my absolute favorite, but I couldn’t decide between black and white or color:)
