Documenting our days | Getting ready

Along with some other photographers, I am doing a monthly challenge to document specific times of day. This month’s theme is “getting ready,” so I present to you here a few of my favorite photos of what getting ready looks like in different households.

Last summer I did a Before 8am session with Debbie and her daughter. (You can see that here.) This summer she wanted to do another session focusing on a different time of day, especially so that her husband could be in the photos too.

We did this session on a Sunday evening. Their routine on summer nights is to go to the neighborhood pool for a bit, then come home and make dinner. After dinner they play with Dani and clean up the kitchen, then they do Dani’s bedtime routine.

Interested in having me shoot a part (or all) of your day? Drop me a line at info@karenjacot.com.

Kelley Priddy - I love the story told here! Great photos!August 19, 2015 – 12:51 pm

Robin Reed - Love! Your photos tell such a great story- a bedtime story to share for years to come.August 19, 2015 – 1:00 pm

Scenes from the first week back

movingin-01

I’ve moved! This month I made the move back to my favorite place—Colorado. From now on I will be based out of Boulder. I will still be returning to Houston occasionally and I do plan to continue taking on clients there.

We packed up a 26′ U-Haul and spent two days driving to get here. Here are a few photos from our first week back in the place I love to call home, unpacked boxes and all.

And I’m now taking clients in the Boulder/Denver area, so if you are around here (or know someone who is) and are interested in having me photograph your family, send me an email at info@karenjacot.com.
