This is Me Thursday: Meet Me!

This is Me- Kiera

 

As a continuing edition to my “This is Me” series, I thought it would be fitting to feature myself this month in honor of my 30th birthday. I created this series to help others document who they are through beautiful custom photography. The idea for this series came about when I was thinking about my own pending milestone birthday.  I thought it would be really neat to have professional photographs of  myself at various milestone ages and to then write little bit about me and my life at each of those stages. I am happy to provide this service for others, but am also super lucky that this month fellow professional photographer, Nicole O’Neil hooked me up with beautiful new head shots so that I could reach my goal of documenting my life at this major milestone.

So who am I today? I am a wife. I am the happiest I have ever been. I am pursuing my dreams and passions through photography. I am starting to be able to travel the world through my craft and get to work with people every day to help creatively document their lives. I have a bounty of friends and a wonderful family. I am healthy.  I fight my fears by courageously tackling each day. I am slowly paying down my student loans. I don’t have any regrets in life. I am excited about the future.

Here of some of my goals for the next 10 years of my life (in no particular order):

  • Snowboard down the Swiss Alps
  • Have my portrait taken in a lavender field in Provence, France
  • Go to the Keukenhof Tulip Festival
  • Eat a baguette picnic under the Eiffel Tower with my husband
  • Watch the sunrise in Acadia National Park with my husband and dog
  • laugh so hard my stomach hurts (hopefully multiple times)
  • have a kid or two (hopefully twins– but no pressure)
  • learn to cook well
  • learn how to describe wine
  • create a photo series with my dog
  • publish a book with my work
  • establish a steady fitness and healthy eating routine
  • do something I never thought I would do
  • learn to be fearless
  • love every day of my life

Here’s to the next 10 years!

 

xoxo-Kiera

So good to have big dreams. Look at all you have accomplished in the first 30 years. I hope the next 30 are the greatest!

Pup Up Portrait Success!

2014-09-05_0008

Yesterday, I hosted my first ever “Pup Up” Portraits at the Boston Fire Department! The guys at Engine Company 22 are always so great to the dogs in the neighborhood by providing delicious treats to all who stop by! Our dog, Cody Pup, drags me by every day! I  thought it’d be fun to capture some fun images of the dogs in our neighborhood and create a photo wall collage for the firehouse. Here are some fun images we captured yesterday! As you will see, I am not a chalkboard artist.

Huge thanks to our sponsor, D’Tails Pet Boutique, for donating tasty treats for the dogs and to Nicole O’Neil from Nicole O’Neil Photography for hanging out with me and capturing these behind the scenes action shots!

This Is Me Thursday: Meet Hayley

ThisIsHayleyInsta

Welcome to a new series for Kiera Slye Photography!  This idea came about when I started thinking about my impending 30th birthday. I am on a mission to find 3 words to describe myself and look forward to having portraits of myself taken on my birthday to capture who I am now at this stage in my life.

In the meantime, I thought I’d get a jump start on the series and introduce you all to the idea. On the second Thursday of each month, I will feature a new person in the “This is Me” series. I am currently accepting applications for future “This Is Me” participants. To apply, send an email to kieraslyephotography@gmail.com and tell me 3 words that describe you, your age, location, and why you want be featured in the series. I can’t wait to see what we come up with!

Now the fun part. Our first participant in the “This is Me” series is Hayley. Hayley is someone I count among my very close friends. She was a bridesmaid in my wedding and keeps me sane here in Boston. She is beautiful, athletic, and witty… and I love her! The three words she chose to describe herself are: intellectual, compassionate, and sincere, and I couldn’t agree more!

Share some love for Hayley and be sure to check back next month to see who we choose to feature next!

xoxo-

Kiera

Boston Baby Photographer: Happy 1st Birthday Violet!

Happy 1st birthday to sweet baby Violet! I have had the honor of documenting Violet’s life since before she was born. She has a beautiful and wonderful family. Join me in taking a quick trip down memory lane of Violet’s first year!

2014-08-04_00012014-08-04_0002

This weekend, I was invited to document Violet’s first birthday party. Her parents came up with the coolest theme ever: SHAARK! A FIN-TASTIC AFFAIR  (in honor of the fact that Violet was born during Shark Week). I mean seriously, how am I so lucky to have awesome clients like these guys? Check out some of the Sharktabulousness of Violet’s day:
