Are you a Realtor working in the NW Ohio and SE Michigan markets?  If so, you don’t want to miss this great Realtor Open House taking place TOMORROW!

Address: 8020 Beck Rd., Ottawa Lake, MI
Date: Wednesday, August 29th
Time: 11 am – 1 pm

Tony Bassett, with The Danberry Co., Realtors, is the listing agent and host for this event.  I’ll give you his words to describe the property:

“I hope you can stop by this Wednesday between 11 and 1 p.m. to tour this awesome property.

The main house is 2,500 square feet with 4 beds and 2 full baths. First-floor laundry and master suite. It has been completely restored and modernized with keeping a lot of the historical integrity intact.

Outside there is more than 2 acres, with a newer 4-car garage and a large heated outbuilding with attached greenhouse, plus an old barn and a few sheds.

My seller and I would truly appreciate your honest feedback on this home. There will be a nice Mediterranean style lunch, and bring a business card for a gift-card drawing.”

Oh, yeah.  That’s right…I’m one of the sponsors!  Spread the word, and I hope to see you there!

A few weeks ago, I posted a very, very brief teaser from Karlee’s first birthday photo session.  Well, that was mean…please forgive me? 🙂  The rest of Karlee’s gallery now awaits at! Here are just a few of my faves:

Please watch Karlee’s session video, too!

Valerie recently called me to schedule a headshot photo session on-location at her office in Toledo.  She explained that she didn’t need a traditional headshot, and that she was actually going to need it to submit to another company – one that would be hosting a conference where she would be a presenter – and her headshot had to include elements of her job.

Challenge accepted!

Note: Valerie Suelzer and I worked together while I was the Director of Education at The Danberry Co., Realtors.  Valerie still holds the reins as their Director of Technology, and she continues to roll out some pretty cool stuff…check out the Danberry Blog for up-to-date information about everything real estate in Toledo, Ohio, and surrounding areas!

Take a gander at the new and improved “About Me” page over at Photography By K.  The update has been long over-due. 🙂

The Harris Elmore Bulldogs 45th Year Class Reunion took place this weekend.  My mom is an alumna, and she asked if I would help out by being the event photographer.  Of course I did…did she think that I would miss an opportunity to see the memorabilia table and witness her with her 1967 coif??? 🙂

Mom is the one with short hair and glasses.  Oh, wait.  (LOL!)  She is in the dark blue diagonal stripes, second from the left.  These were just a few images snapped from my iPhone.  Want to see the real deal more?  Check out the Harris Elmore 45th Reunion full gallery at!

Just a sneak peek of Spencer’s First Birthday photo shoot from this weekend at the Marblehead Lighthouse State Park.  I’ve never met such a smiley one-year-old.  He made my job easy!  There are lots more coming soon…

…to start thinking about scheduling an updated photo session for your Holiday cards!  I have NEW card designs this year and I would love to create a custom card for you that will WOW your family and friends.  All cards are 5×7, double-sided and professionally printed on quality card stock.  Every order comes with envelopes, printed with your return address (if desired).  Take a quick peek at the 6 different choices for the 2012 Holiday season, and call me to schedule your photo session* and begin the process of creating your special card today!

*Cards are sold separately from photo sessions. Photos on cards must be created by Photography By K.

Recently, Ron and Carol celebrated their golden wedding anniversary.  Aren’t they just the cutest?

Their daughter asked me to tag along and to capture the memories of the evening, and I was so happy to!  I asked my pal Mary (the famous blogger at Are You On The Fence?, Petite-Party Planners and On Life and Creating…why yes, she writes.  A lot.  Ha!) acted as my assistant for the event.  Here are just a few samples of the wonderful family that we witnessed celebrating that evening.  They are an awesome bunch, and I’m so grateful to have met them!

Take a peek at their video slideshow, too!

Sometimes, the result of the “Now make a funny face!” request is just too humorous NOT to share…check out mom in the family below:

That last one?  Probably one of my all-time favorites.  Mom saw dad’s face, and just had to hang her head out of exasperation! 🙂
