When is the best time for family photos? The Fall! It is really my favorite time of year for portrait session. The lighting is great, weather is cooler, and the colors are just amazing. The Fall is when schools do their own school pictures, but a portrait session will get you better (and more) photos of your kids and more than one family photo. Contact me to set up your fall photo session (starting in October). Prices begin at $180 for an hour session.
My second born! My first went to full time school today and so FINALLY I have some time to breath so we did a mini shoot. Some photographers have a bazillion photos of their kids. Very true for Phoenix, my first. When I had Adelaide (my second) I was determined to have great professional photos of her. SUPER BIG TIME FAIL. She has great newborn photos, mostly thanks to the fact I didn’t have a C-section like with Phoenix so I could actually move. After newborn photos there are maybe five nice photos of her. I think it’s a combo of moving to American from Asia and also feeling like two kids is actually a hundred. She was such a great little model!
Totally her idea to put her hands in her pockets. So glad she actually had pockets, because when she doesn’t have pockets and wants pockets she just puts things down her pants, ha!
This one is just her personality!
Welcome to the world, Caleb! Caleb is enthusiastically welcomed into the world by the best big sister ever, Chloe. She is very much into helping and taking care of her baby. Thank you for letting me help you remember these tiny sweet days! I also featured Sarah’s maternity photos on here and here not too long ago.
Meet Harper (3) and Sadie (9 months)! Aren’t they squishably cute? I can tell their mom has really good taste from the dresses she specially ordered for their session. Harper was my friend from our first words. Sadie, was a little more difficult to make friends with but in the end she gave me the sweetest smile. So beautiful!
Thank you!Read More
The lovely Allyson! Allyson is turning 16 on Thursday. She’s so gorgeous! The first thing I noticed about her were her lovely eyes. She definitely rocks the smiling with the eyes look. I love this first posted photo. It actually was one of the last photos I took. If I was granted a photographer’s wish I would want my clients to be relaxed like they are at the end all throughout the session. Magic happens in those last moments. It’s so wonderful. It’s the culmination of photographer and client getting to know each other to create a great comfortable experience. Happy birthday Allyson! I hope you have an awesome day relaxing at the spa.
Some of the images have my previous business logo on it (2point5d). All images were taken by me, Kaitlin Roten.Read More
After looking through and editing these images I just thought they were too beautiful and sweet not to share!
Hello baby brother!
You guys look great!
Here are the photos from The Ridge’s Graduation. There have been some technical difficulties so I apologize that these are up a few days later than I had expected. Enjoy! Click on the image to enlarge. Congratulations little 4s!
I photographed Sarah and her family in an especially awesome location, you would never know we were in the heart of suburbia! Sarah is 8 months pregnant and according to her daughter, Chloe, she’s going to have a baby sister (it’s actually going to be a brother) and she’s going to be named Guacamole (Caleb). So stay tuned for family photos from this session and maybe soon (!!!) newborn photos of baby Guacamole.
Thanks for an awesome location and for sharing your great family with me! Years will pass by and it will be hard to remember “life before Caleb” so hopefully these photos will preserve special family moments of just the three of you.Read More
Several weeks ago I had the best (best!) time photographing with Rachel Robinson. The day was filled with many Cambodian clothing changes from the bride, Jenn. I saw a few of the dresses and they were so so so so so very pretty. The reception was held at the Zander house. Totally an unexpected beauty of a place. And I have spent my fair share enjoying Asian food and this place was legit. Here are a few shots from that day. Congratulations Chris and Jenn! Thank you to Rachel Robinson!
