When I think of family so many types of and descriptions of come to mind. It seems like the world around us wants to dictate what a family is or who can be a family but I can say for certain that it is not the what or the who that makes a family it is the bond that is forged through all of the experiences shared. Whether these moments are pure, good, happy, trying, anxious or even at times seemingly unbearable, it is in these moments that build and layer the multifaceted chambers of our minds and hold for us the only links to our past, present and future. It is in these moments that we create with those around us and it is in these moments that formulate for me what is Family.
Kylene, Dave and Matty are no strangers when it comes to being in front of or behind cameras. Kylene is a hugely successful boudoir photographer as well as the talent behind the lens & marketing guru of Leave it to me Photography. I love her Boudoir work and her distinctive style shows through in her portraits as well as the vibe of her wedding images. These are just the exterior footnotes, the “made for all audiences” version. What I love most about Kylene is her contagious laugh, her quirky wit and her ability to balance business, marriage, teaching workshops, being a mom, time with friends and most of all the sense of family that both her and Dave have instilled in Matty. His words to me the day of our shoot both amazed me and had me cracking up all within the same 5 second period.
