I remember when I booked my flight in October, this trip seemed FOREVER away! But now it is finally here and I’m so extremely excited about it! You have no idea how much pleasure I get from exploring the world we live in! I will be heading to Ireland first, where I’ll be meeting up with friends in Dublin and traveling all through the countryside for a week. I also have a few other friends that I’ve met over the course of the last few months that I’m looking forward to meeting in person. Then we will be heading on a ferry over to London, England where I will get to start off where I left off back in 2010 (when I last visited). I’m extremely excited to be meeting up with 2 of my British besties too while I’m there!
So with that being said, I will be out of the office from now until Monday, June 3rd. I will respond to all correspondence as soon as I return! If you want to keep up with my travels while I’m gone, be sure to follow me on my Instagram here: http://instagram.com/tamikeehn.
Since I’m absolutely TERRIBLE about posting my personal photos (always trying to stay on top of my clients’ images), here some of my favorite images from my last trip to London in 2010. It blows me away to look back and see how much I’ve grown with my photography in the last 3 years (so be kind about what you see! Haha). Enjoy!
The Sloane Square station where we would get off to get to our hotel in Chelsea.
We did a little shopping and stopped for some lunch in Covent Gardens. Loved these statue dude street performers!
I do NOT recommend standing in one of these telephone booths…reeked of urine!
By the end of the weekend in London, I was finally getting the hang of the Tube.
Buckingham Palace – Changing of the guards!
It’s a Bobby!
I hope to get inside the National Gallery this time around! I didn’t get a chance to check out many museums.
The London Eye was probably one of the highlights for me. I loved the views from it! So very cool!
House of Parliament and Big Ben (and some of Westminster Abbey)
Charing Cross Station
Tower of London (another site I need to visit this time!)
After a weekend in London, we headed outside of the city. We headed to town of Avebury to see the stone formations (and you can actually get right up to them, unlike Stonehenge)
Loved grabbing a drink inside of the Red Lion (Est. 1802)
I don’t think my friend Lil even knew I took this photo. But I felt it appropriate to take a photo of the 51 Upper Queens Street – the address I sent long, handwritten letters to since we were both probably 12 or 13.
We took a trip to St. Peterborough Cathedral. Here lies the grave of Catherine of Aragon.
Look at this crooked steeple! This church in Chesterfield, had the spire added in 1362 and due to poor craftsmanship, it warped as such.
Next we headed to the town of Eyam. This was the town known as the “Plague Village” because they chose to isolate themselves when the Great Plague struck in 1665. They would use Mompesson’s Well to transfer food, medicine and coins in and out of the town.
Eyam Church. Being an American, the dates on the tombstones bewildered my mind.
I forget the age of this thing, but it was something ridiculous like 500 AD. I remember thinking it was so unreal to be able to stand and touch something so old!
After our trip to Eyam we headed to what I think it was the Peak District National Park? Whatever it was, it was beautiful! We got met by some friend cows and sheep and had some breath-taking views as we climbed among the rocky hills.
It was a bit chilly that day! We bundled up!
In Northamptonshire, I headed to Coton Manor Garden with Lindsey and her mum. It was bluebell season and as we entered the woods, I felt like I was walking into an enchanted forest and that fairies HAD to be hiding in the nooks just waiting to jump out at me! Haha.
And with that, I PROMISE I will not wait 3 years for photos from this trip! PROMISE!! Haha.
Mirjam and her hubby recently relocated to Ohio from Germany. If it were me and I moved to a new country and I was expecting my first child so far away from my family and friends, I’d be a little bit nervous. But not these two. They seem like they are so excited to take on this new experience in a new country and I’m so excited that they chose me to be there to help photograph these special moments and memories so they CAN share it with their loved ones that are a few thousand miles away. Sessions such as this always remind me why I love what I do so much.
Sometimes you come across couples where the love just radiates from them. You can tell that they are so completely smitten with each other. That’s Jen and Patrick. The warmth and kindness they had towards each other. All the tenderness and smiles. After finishing their engagement session, it left me all in love with love. Haha. I can’t wait until next month when I get to photograph these two exchanging their vows.
So I have to say that baby James takes the cake when it comes to the calmest baby I have probably ever photographed! This adorable little munchkin was sooooo good about keeping “passed out” for our session. I almost didn’t know what to do with myself…newborn sessions generally take lots of time and patience, so when I was finding myself able to get my shot within the first or second try, it was like “Wow!” Haha. Thank you for making my job easy, little guy!
Check out some of my favorite images below. Is he not the cutest thing ever?!
Last year, on a whim, I decided when I headed out to Vegas for the Annual WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photography Conference) that I was going to do a shoot-out session where I could get some hands-on shooting with other photographers from all over. I ended up doing Victor Sizemore‘s Golden Era Baseball shoot and had an absolute BLAST doing it. So this year it was a given that I’d be doing it again. This year’s theme was a Great Gatsby style shoot! We did some photos in front of the Paris Hotel, snuck into the Sugar Factory American Brasserie lobby for a few photos (before we got kicked out! Haha), then headed over to a RIDIC-ulous suite at The Palm Place were we ventured into some more boudoir-esque type of photos. Here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.
To see more images from the day, please check out my gallery here.

What better way to celebrate my birthday than to share with you a session that is one of my absolute favorite to photograph…sexy boudoir! There’s just something about bringing out the inner vixen of either the mother of 3 kiddos, the prim & proper company exec or the plain jane school teacher that never wears makeup. I love seeing the transformation after my makeup artist works with them to bring out their best features and then seeing them light up as we choose the sexiest outfit options.
Here’s a session that I did recently with Miss S…isn’t she gorgeous?!
It’s hard to believe that a year has past since I last saw Mr. Avi. This handsome little man has grown so much and I’m absolutely in love with his head of curls and bright blue eyes! We were lucky enough to get a beautiful March spring day in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park and I had a blast playing and photographing with this little guy and his amazing parents. I also got news that Avi is going to be a big brother! Such exciting stuff! I look forward to getting to photograph again this soon to be family of 4!
And just a fun comparison to see how much Avi has grown over the last year! Craziness! I didn’t think he could get any cuter…but he managed.
Angela and Jon are two of the sweetest individuals you will ever meet. This gorgeous duo moved to Ohio not too long ago from Florida to continue to pursue their musical career. You could check out this guitar/flute duo’s website for some amazing sounding music. Being from Florida, they wanted to have some winter engagement photos done…especially since this would be their first time getting to experience snow! While we managed only to get some light snowflakes for their session (because Ohio weather can never make up it’s mind on what it wants to do! Haha), we left with some amazing shots of this loving couple.
Have I mentioned lately that I’ve been doing a lot of maternity and newborn sessions? (See last post for reference! Haha). This big boy (all 9.9 lbs of adorable baby chunk), aka Mr Emmett , made his appearance right after Saint Patty’s day! His mom and dad sure are LUCKY because he’s a cutie pie! Check out some favorites below!
I remember the thrill as a little girl of getting to get all dolled up in a pretty dress and shoes (hopefully with a heel!) I could tell Miss Lorraine was equally excited to get dressed up for her photo session to commemorate her first communion. My favorite part of the session is when Lorraine asked her mom and I, “”So this is what it feels like to be a bride?” Yes, it is exactly like that. :) Here are a few of my favorite shots from the session. Enjoy!
It seems like lately I have been doing nothing but maternity and newborn photo sessions. You know what though? When I get to photograph adorable little bundles of joy as cute as little Miss Evelyn, I am in ABSOLUTELY okay and in love with this fact! Congrats to Shauna and Michael on the addition of this sweet, beautiful, little girl!
I had such a good time photographing little Mr. Casey. He was such a calm baby and had the most pinchable baby chub I’ve seen in a while! Love those baby cheeks! Haha. And you NEED to see just how handsome he looked in a denim vest and also his football knit cap! Check out a few of my favorite photos from spending the afternoon with the Yanko family.
