Remember When You Could Run Away?

Hello again!

Remember how I started my new website?
Remember that if you haven't updated your RSS feed yet, you are missing out?
Remember that my new site is located at

Ok good. Now,

Remember how I said that I was going to turn this blog into my personal family blog?
Remember how I said I would post little gems from my life here for your enjoyment?
Remember how I always keep my promises?

Ok. Well then,

Remember when you were a kid?
Back in the good ol' days.
Remember how you would threaten your parents that you were going to run away?

Well that's what Matias did the other night.
He packed up all his valuables in his bandana, tied it on the end of a wooden stick and called out from the front door multiple times,

"Mom, I'm leaving now!"

I just had to take a picture of him before he hit the open road.

So please, dont judge me on this messy layout and crappy lack of design.
Im sprucing up my new space and cant wait to show it to you.

So, in preparation of my big switch, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE update your RSS feeds so you can continue to follow me along my photographic path.

The new site is KIERAEVE.COM.

Update now or you will forget.

As a side note:
I will keep this blog going so if you are interested in sticking around please feel free.
However, the content here will change.
You can expect strictly family/personal stuff here.
No professional work, except for maybe the occasional teaser. :)
It'll be nice to have a space just for my kids. my thoughts. my life.

The Saenz Family Photo: 2011

Ever since seeing this photo, I have wanted to recreate it with my own family.
I loved the idea of dressing up in tuxedos and gowns.
Fancy, upscale, and glamourous. We can all dream right?
With a big dose of Saenz style, I knew we would have the makings for something really special.

All the men and my cute boys wore tuxedos and all the girls shopped for fancy gowns.
Each person added their own personal style and that is where the photo really came to life.
We hired a fantastic make up artist/friend, Ashlee Chris, to make us all look beautiful and were lucky enough
to be able to shoot at the amazingly lavish residence at LaCaille.
Finally, I hired my friend and fellow click cliquer Heather at Heather Nan Photography to capture it for us and it was on!

These are the stunning results.

We hope your holidays were as "rich" as ours. Ha!
Merry Christmas 2011.

An Attempt at Ophelia

I have been obsessed with Ophelia for years and years.
I have dreamed of doing a conceptual Ophelia photo shoot for as long as I can remember and I finally decided to try my hand at it a couple weeks ago.
I used a variety of polaroid cameras and different types of film to capture something I intended to be artistic and unique.
Polaroid film inherently has those qualities which is why I chose to photograph in that style.
I will say upfront that I did not get exactly what I had envisioned but I really enjoyed the exploration of the idea
and now have a better idea of what I want to do the next time around.
After fantasizing about this shoot for so long, I knew there was no way I was going to be satisfied with my first attempt but I fully intend on revisiting this concept again, in the near future.
There are so many directions I could take this...

For this particular session, we experimented with milk.

I used a variety of Impossible Polaroid Films including:
PX 680 Color Shade First Flush
PX 70 Color Shade
Spectra Softtone
PX 600 Silver Shade
