– Hey readers-
As promised in my previous blog I am back with a photography update and let me tell you I am in LOVE with todays session!
I have been racking my brain thinking of new ideas and trying not to fall off track of my own style of photography. When I start charging people for session I felt like I had to compete with other local photographers and no I do not think that my skills are ANY where near theirs but I was beginning to lose what made my photos MY style. After weeks of trial and error I finally nailed a session today and the photos came out so beautiful!
You may have noticed that I love outdoor photography but being new to my Nikon camera lighting and settings can be a hit or a miss. I have taken a lot of time researching and learning about my camera and for the most part I think it is paying off!
Today I had a session with a very beautiful Mom of two (you can’t even tell she ever had a child) yes I am jealous haha but our work together came out just awesome!
Below I will share some of my favorite shots from today!
Leesa is so beautiful and very talented with makeup as you can see! I look forward to keep working with her in the future and seeing what other style sessions we can capture.
I have a lot more models lined up for future sessions and I can not wait to share them with you all. Thank you for the love on my blog and Instagram! You guys are amazing and make me keep pushing for my dreams and goals.
Have a wonderful weekend and I will be back very soon.
A week ago I took the plung and decided that NOW is the time to begin my fitness journey and I am so happy that I did.
I have always had a fear of workouts/ gyms and being judged because lets face it, when you are thin/small people belittle your fitness goals. At the same time I kind of just got to a point where I thought you know what f**k it either way people are gonna hate on it but at least I will be reaching my goals for ME!
My weight is the highest (non pregnancy) and I seem to be maintaining it well these days. I am not jumping into a diet or completely changing my daily eating habits but I am taking baby steps into having a healthier lifestyle.
Not only am I enjoying working out but my health has improved so much as well. My anxiety is hardly even noticeable, I am able to sleep with no sleep aid and my headaches and back pain has been reduced 95% along with the help of essential oils.
I can not wait to take weekly/monthly progress photos and see changes in my body and feel better about my physical appearance. My advice to you if you have been procrastinating working out, just DO IT! Take that leap and do it for you!
I will Blog meal prep ideas and Weekly Fitness updates, look forward to that! Also I have a lot of new Photography to share with you all so those posts will be coming soon!

– Hello everyone-
It has been a hot minute since I have been back and I thought, why not fill you all in on what I have been up to!?!
Since stopping all of my medications and trying more natural remedies for my anxiety and pain I have been feeling 100x better! I am clear headed, at a healthy weight, happy and I recently picked up my Nikon DSLR camera again!
With all of the beauty of Spring blossoming I recently booked a few sessions as well as just taking photos of what catches my eye and well…. although I am a bit rusty and I am still learning I was so please with the outcome of them all. I love the idea of being a non-traditional photographer and stepping out of the lines and going the extra mile that most do not even think of. Now, my photography is not for everyone and as I learned the hard way, not everyone will be supportive I will not give up on my dream of showing my clients their own REAL beauty.
I think one thing that sets me apart from all of the others is that I do NOT photoshop. I use very simple ways of editing my photos to show the real beauty of each individual session. The whole reason of my Photography name “Unlikely Photography” is because Unlike most other photographers I refuse to edit out what makes us beautiful as individuals and HUMAN! I do not take photos for perfection. I want to show the world as beautiful as I see it with a dash of creativity.
I stepped out of my comfort zone completely and I am trying new ideas/ photoshoots and editing and for a beginner I don’t think they turned out too bad! I know that my recent clients have been very pleased with their photos.
I am thankful that I never lost sight of what I really want and what I deserve. I am beyond blessed to be able to stay home with my children and have a job that I can respect myself for. Dreams do not come true if you do not work for it.
Please feel free to like, comment and share if you like my post as well as following my Blog. I am beyond thankful to all of my followers and viewers who have stuck around through my roller coaster life!

– Hey everyone-
It has been a long time since I have gotten behind the camera and there are many reasons why but I am more than ready to get back to my Photography.
I am looking to set up some free sessions with some stylish (no matter what kind) and snap some beautiful photos.
I look forward to sharing my Photos with you all and doing what I feel I was born to do.

Happy Love Day to you all.

I can’t even lie about crying last night due to all the cloudy negativity and insecurities in my mind. Sometimes I feel like I am failing as a person, mom and wife and I probably do but this year I want to try harder. I want to spend time doing positive things and being a lot more adventurous. I spent way too much time in 2017 in self pity and hating everyone and everything. I was angry for things that had nothing to do with anyone but me. So now after doing some soul searching and working on myself from the inside out I feel I am strong enough to put myself into a positive state of mind.
We (My Husband and I) have both worked our asses off to get to where we are today and I feel now more than ever, it is time to enjoy our lives together.
I have been a mess of a woman and I have never been comfortable with being me so how could I expect to let others in right?
My sister gave me “Fight less, Love more” by Laurie Puhn, JD maybe four years ago and this poor book has done nothing but collecting dust.
So I have decided I will be spending my free time reading this wonderful book and picking up new hobbies that will help me keep up the positivity. Wish me luck, and I hope your 2018 is off to a Great start! The sky is the limit babes, you can do anything that you put your mind to.

I would have to say one of the biggest obstacles I have struggled with has always been my eating problems and stress/anxiety disorder. I used to not care about myself or even thought that I was worth anything because I didn’t see it. I used to be in a vey dark and scary place but I am so happy to say that this New Year has began as Kasey being the Healthiest and happiest EVER! I reached a goal that has always been impossible. I could never maintain my weight (ever) and I had a hard time keeping my weight above 85lb. I am so thankful to say that the first day of a New Year begins with my highest weight ever and I am no longer struggling!
I see myself where I am today and all the hell I went through to be where I am today and I can smile. I know that every struggle and all of those mountains I had to climb was to reach the top and to keep going! I have grown as a Wife, Mother, and basic human being. I have a Husband who loves me, children who adore me and inner strength I never knew I had.
Sometime I find it crazy that the one thing that made me realize my strength is the one thing I thought would drag me down. After my diagnosis with Interstitial Cystitis it was like something clicked in my head and I realized that even though I have this life altering chronic syndrome, I am alive and ready to live.
I will take this year, the last year of my 20s and I will be so much more than I ever believed I could. I know the whole “New Year, New Me” is a clique but really my goal this year is to “Heal” from the inside out. I will no longer run from my fears but rather take them head on. I will begin working on my Health and fitness like I never have and I am stoked to bring you all along on my journey! Follow my Instagram for a full look into my life. I can only imagine where I will be in a single year but wherever I go, I am taking you all with me. I will open up and share the good and the bad. I will share my whole experience of 2018 with all of my viewers and I hope you all will stick along for the ride. Cheers to New Years, let’s make the best of 2018!
