"When I became pregnant, my husband and I knew we wanted to capture every precious moment of our pregnancy, our new baby, and us as a growing family. As new parents, we wanted to live in the moment and enjoy each memory being made. We knew it would be hard for us to do that if one of us was behind the camera. We hoped to find someone we were comfortable with; someone who understood us, our wishes and our concerns. We found the perfect fit in Kailee. She is exceptionally personable and made us feel like she was part of our family from the moment we met her. She was attentive to our apprehensions, listened as if our concerns were her concerns. She was patient and supportive. Kailee has a way about her that brings you comfort. She is present, yet in the background. She doesn’t intrude and has the talent of being able to capture the most perfect pictures while still allowing you the privacy that special moments deserve. We were blessed to have her share such special experiences with us! Kailee captured special moments our family created, so we don’t have to worry about it fading from our mind. Kailee, you are absolutely wonderful. THANK YOU for photographing the story of our growing family." ~Courtney K.
"Kailee has to be the most warm hearted, and brilliant photographers in all of TN! She made me feel like a model, and let's be honest, at almost 10 months pregnant that's hard to do! She was so very sweet, and so very easy to work with. We could tell she meant business, and that she was genuine and cared with every inch of her being to deliver the best pictures possible. We WILL be using Kailee again, and highly recommend her to anyone and everyone for any occasion! Thank you again Kailee!" ~Taylor A.
"Kailee was set to photograph our home birth. When I needed to be induced at the hospital, she came quickly so not to miss anything. I really wasn't sure if I would feel self conscious with a camera in the room and as it turned out, I didn't even know she was taking pictures. Having her there in the room with us made my birth team that much better. Her quiet confidence and calming spirit really helped me to relax. The images she captured are so beautiful it's hard to describe. Seeing my labor through her lens is really meaningful and the pictures captured of my son's first breath, first cry…everything, are just unbelievable. These are my favorite images!" ~Brittany V.
"I haven't lived in the Nashville area very long and was lucky enough to stumble across Kailee on Facebook. I took a leap and booked a package for my baby's 1st year. I couldn't be happier with this decision. We have had maternity, newborn, and 6 month pictures now and they've all been beautiful! She made me feel so pretty during my maternity photos, when I was starting to feel too huge to look good. Kailee is amazing with babies too! Our daughter didn't want to cooperate and sleep during her newborn photos and she still managed to get the soft, cuddly, beautiful baby photos that I love! My family loves working with Kailee and we will cherish our photos from her forever!" ~Blythe R.
"We loved our maternity, birth and newborn photos done by Kailee. She has an amazing gift for being present while photographing, but staying in the background and just letting the shots play out naturally. She is super sweet and was great with our uncooperative three year old. Just when I thought she wouldn't get any photos of him she got some amazing ones. She also puts a lot of time into her shoots which was appreciated - they didn't feel rushed like I had experienced in the past with other photographers. We will cherish the photos forever and can't wait for Kailee to photograph our little one again at 6 months." ~Rachel W.
"We are so thankful for the amazing pictures Kailee took. She was able to capture precious emotions and moments that are priceless. We continuously relive our daughter's arrival through her pictures. Kailee was truly excited to share the experience with our family, and she integrated well while taking pictures in the background. I highly recommend Kailee for birth photography. Not only, did she capture precious moments that you cannot recreate but she wanted to be a part of your birth story." ~Shaun S.
"Kailee is an absolute gem. We had her shoot photographs of our baby for his first birthday and they are just perfect. Gorgeous. We plan on using Kailee for all things in the future! Thank you Kailee for your sharing your beautiful talent with Dan, Otto, me, and our family. We love you!" ~Jessica M.
