The smallest of details make up our most memorable moments; your ever-growing bump, the way your baby's hair blows in the wind as she nurses, or how your soul mate looks into your eyes before he leans in for a kiss. I will help foster the goodness that is already there and create magical art from the the connection and emotion in your family’s life - to tell a story that's uniquely yours!
We will explore together, play with your little ones, and enjoy the memories being made. I am there every step of the way - from offering a client wardrobe, choosing magical locations, and CREATING a one-of-a-kind experience from beginning to end! I seek the moments that express the feelings you are unable to put into words by getting to know you, your heart and everything that matters most!

What sessions do you offer?
I specialize in motherhood portraiture (maternity, breastfeeding, momma + me), newborns, families, children, and couples!
What is your process of booking?
For portrait sessions we'll get to know each other via email or a telephone call! I'll learn what you are looking for and what session you'd like. To book, we'll narrow down a date, you'll pay your 50% retainer, and sign your contract.
After booking I'll send you my session guide and questionnaire. Then we'll schedule your pre-consultation at my home studio or over the phone, where we'll begin planning your unique session location, you'll see my client wardrobe, and much more!
Do you only shoot in natural light?
Yes. Whether it’s an outdoor session with your family, motherhood session, or an indoor newborn session, I use natural light to highlight my subjects. I typically shoot at sunrise or sunset when the light is softest to create warmth in my photos, but am experienced in shooting during any time of the day and overcast weather.
What do I wear to my session?
This is one of my favorite parts about planning your session! Earthy tones, neutral colors, and prints all work well for any type of portrait session. Your session is an investment, so naturally you want to look your best. I always recommend finding something special, it may already be in your closet. I also offer styling and curated pieces in my client wardrobe!
Don't wait until the last moment to put something together, but don't worry I'll help you choose something that will compliment you and your location! Once you have booked a date, I'll send you more "What to Wear" information.
How long does it take to see my photos?
Your photos will sent via a private online gallery three weeks from your session date! I love posting sneak peeks, so be sure to follow me on Instagram (@kerlynvangelderphotography) and on Facebook so I am able to tag you in your photos!
Your print images, canvases, and albums take 3-6 weeks of delivery after your balance has been paid and photos have been chosen!
What products do you offer?
I offer several all-inclusive digital collections and prints, canvases, and albums can be added on to any order. I am aware that in this day and age the convenience of digital copies so every collection comes with printing rights.
We offer payment plans for the convenience of our clients, please don't hesitate to ask about setting one up!
How do I get my images?
Your digital images will be delivered to you 3 weeks after your session and prints take 5-6 weeks for delivery after your order is placed!
How is the location chosen for my session? And do you travel?
Yes I love to travel and photograph my clients in new places they love! I am located in Corpus Christi, Texas and travel frequently to Oregon, shooting in both locations. I will recommend locations locally in Corpus Christi, but if you want somewhere unique to your personality, I have a travel fee and then we are free to explore!
What if I need to reschedule?
I understand that you may have a sick child or the weather isn't cooperating. If you need to reschedule please let me know 48 hours before your session (if the weather isn't not in our favor I'll be contacting you) and we will find a better date!
