WPPI Highlights II

"Hiiiiiiiii! I'm Jamie!"

More and more of the photography world is hearing about, loving and blog-stalking this ambitious, beautiful, talented, ShowIT-site-winning, 18-year-old lady :D

We've been friends via email, skype, facebook and blogs, of course, for almost 2 years now. I totally felt like I knew her and had met her before, but I hadn't. Stink :(

When WPPI was rolling (literally rolling ;D) around, it looked like we were going to be able to room together. Yay! Sound the alarm! Cheer the three cheers! Set off fireworks! I was really excited to finally meet this friend in person :D

Sooo, we clicked :D

And were goof balls.

Of course we took pictures of each other - I wasn't gonna pass up a free shoot with JAMIE DELAINE! Psh. I'm no dummy. In 5 years these will be worth an arm and a leg and a gallon of gas!

Besides becoming awesome friends in about 3 1/2 minutes, I learned a lot from her. I should call her "Teach." We talked camera settings, business, friends and God. This girl has her head screwed on right, on my goodness.

She has got it ALL together, and was so encouraging to me!
You're the best little lady :D The summer is too long to wait to see you :( Maybe David Jay will have invented a ShowItTimeTransporter (that we can control and customize!) before then. Cause I need to see you!

Here are a few snaps I grabbed of this girl....


If you want to see what we are like together, check out this awesome video from Smith Pixels. If you want an awesome video, hire Smith Pixels!

  1. You two are way cute- I love that shot of both of you laying side by side with your cameras!

  2. all your pictures are very beautiful!!congratulation!! =)

  3. Love the third ones down of Jamie! And the changes to your blog look great, Kristen!

  4. How sweet you both are! I'm glad I subscribe to Jamie's blog... because now I know about you! I am excited to keep up with your work. You are very talented!


    this post almost made me tear up.
    almost. i've been a little emotional lately!! i have soooo much to tell you!!! we need to skype when i get home next week. LOVE YOU and you're the sweetest thing ever.


  6. Oh my gosh, these pictures are AMAZING! If you're ever in Atlanta, you have to hook me up with some amazing portraits :D Seriously, they're all great, but I think my favs are the 3rd and 4th from the bottom. Not only are they stunning, but they beautifully capture her personality!

  7. I found you through Jamie Delaine and I just have to say that your pictures of Jamie are absolutely beautiful! You do a great job with your photography. Watching the video of you and Jamie was an encouragement to me because I too question myself sometimes, comparing my work with that of others. But be assured that yours is very good too.

  8. I just found you through Jasmine Star and I wanted to say that I think you are such a cutie! You are a great photographer and are an inspiration to me!

  9. Wow, it's hard to believe she is so young and so talented. Your pics together were uber cute!

  10. Girl, you got it. I love you so much! But obviously not as much as James. She keeps rubbing it in. ;) Great times in Vegas and conversations here. I really appreciate your willingness to listen to my emotional ramblings. It means a lot to me.

    One more thing: we have something in common. We're not to good with the blogs. Lol. I am just now doing my post from Vegas. Bad, I know.

    LOVE you.
