It has been way too long since I’ve posted photos of my two boys, so this morning while we were tearing up Silas’s room I got out the camera to document my lively boys.
Elliott and Henry are two adorable little boys! Elliott was such a confident 5 year old, he wasn’t afraid of me or my camera and was just so lovely to photograph! His little brother was less interested in the photo shoot, but his genius dad came up with a way to get him to look at the camera and look pleasantly happy for longer than 2 seconds… the iPhone showing a tv show right above me lens! Now that’s a trick I’m going to keep! Genius! We hiked a mile loop around the Parkville Nature center and by the time we all got back to the cars we had had a great shoot and some really good exercise!
Ashley, Taylor and Ethan met me at the huge and wonderful Shawnee-Mission park last week and the weather was entirely too good to be true. This little fella was so spunky and fun, he reminded me a lot of my son, Solomon. Within minutes he was running away from his parents and coming up to me, he was curious and not afraid of a new face! We hiked around the park and eventually ended up by the beautiful lake for the last shots where I was loving the connection between Ethan and his dad. A father and a son’s love is just so precious and I’m glad to have been apart of their love that night.
I met Lindsey a few weeks ago when I volunteered to photograph a few kids for the Missouri Heart Gallery, she was a social worker for a set of siblings that I photographed. I could tell right away that she and I shared the same heart for these kids. I love it when I get to meet the people who are in the front lines of social justice.
We met last night at the beautiful Ironwood’s park in Leawood and it was such a perfect night for photos! The sun was out and it was just warm enough to feel like Spring had arrived. Little Norah was such a doll and the Radcliff’s were such a kind and loving family!
Beth and her family met me in the Crossroad’s district in Kansas City for her senior photos. This family has tons of personality and artistic flare! They are from Peculiar, Missouri which itself is super fun, and we just walked around block after block finding the neatest locations! Thanks Beth and the Crewse Family for hiring me to do your photos!
The Schmidt family drove up from Kansas to meet me in the beautiful area of Weston, Missouri for their daughter’s four month photo shoot. Elise is such a beautiful baby! She has the most gorgeous, glassy blue eyes and such a darling smile. Her parents are just nuts about her and they were just some of the most joyful people I’ve been around in a long time.
Avalon’s mom contacted me a few months ago to photograph Avalon’s senior session in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I guess I have really great SEO for my website when I lived there two years ago, but we lucked out because Avalon lives in the KC area! We decided to meet up and do an urban session in the Westport area downtown and found some really neat places, this town just goes on and on!! I am finally living in the mecca for photo-shoot locations! Avalon was so much fun and I could tell how excited she was about going to OSU this fall. Good luck Avalon! Wave to my old home town for me when you move in!
I’m in the process of adjusting my pricing for the Spring and want to know what YOU are wanting! I am even willing to do a drawing for a FREE session in the KC area for your participation! Please vote and then add your name/email in a comment below the post and you could win a free session with the digital download of images (a $350 value!)!!
I met Cheryl at a women’s church group about 5 weeks ago and we instantly connected. She is hilarious, loud, quirky, humble and completely honest. That’s my kind of friend material! When she told me that she lived in a tiny town, and homeschooled her 5 children and owned over 5 pets I knew this would be a great family to photograph! I met them in their home town of Plattsburg, Missouri and we drove along the outskirts of town, went “downtown” and then found a riverbank for their Dr. Who gas mask photos. They are big fans of the show and had purchased some gas masks from an army surplus store, which of course they had to bring to the session. I just love this family and know that we will be great friends for a long, long time!
Meet the Garren family! These beautiful people contacted me because of my lovely photographer and friend, Rebecca Peters, who is out on maternity leave and needed a session for their daughter’s one year photos. Emily, Ryan and Keira met me at Loose Park, the most beautiful and famous park in the heart of Kansas City last weekend and it was such a warm, beautiful day! Keira is such a beauty, I just can’t get over how blue her eyes are! We toddled around the park and then got to the best part, the cake smash. Kiera sat on the sidewalk and just happily ate that vanilla cake, she probably would have polished it off if her mom didn’t remove her from it! I had so much fun with these people!
