Portrait Session | Midwest Weather

I took these portraits last weekend in about 70-degree weather. This weekend it snowed. That’s the Midwest for you! I’m hoping for more spring and less winter in the near future. I love this family…and the fact that they always bring grandparents to the photo shoot to help wrangle the kids and make them laugh. It works like a charm!

Photo of the Day: Birthday Girl

My sweet Lil’ Miss K is three today! Where has the time gone? She’s quickly turning into a smart, independent, “threenager.” Her favorite food is mac ‘n cheese, her favorite color is orange, her favorite letter is O … she hasn’t wavered from these favs for almost a year. She’s obsessed with Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and can reenact an episode after watching it only once or twice. She loves singing and putting on goofy dances shows, and her favorite toy is her imagination. She’s pretty good at throwing a ball, too. I can have adult conversations with her, but I quickly remember she’s still a toddler when she starts to have a meltdown. We love this opinionated girl to pieces!

Check out how she’s changed since her last photo four months ago.

See how tall she’s gotten since last year!

Playing with Friends

We had some friends and their 4-month-old over last weekend. Lil’ Miss K gets a little jealous when I hold him (ok, a lot jealous), but she started opening up to the idea of him when she got to play with his “fan toy” with him.

She’s even better at playing with her stuffed animal “friends” – she set up a whole indoor picnic for them the next day! It was nice to have a weekend not packed with plans – time to play at home and enjoy our girl.

Portrait Session | She’s three? How can that be?

This little girl is growing up way too fast. She’s a ball of energy with a lot of sass and a lot to say. She couldn’t be any cuter! I’ve had the pleasure of taking her photos since she was an infant, so I love looking back to see how she’s changed. Since she has a late fall birthday, we utilized our newly remodeled church, which has great natural light.

Thankful | Family Portraits

As we approach Thanksgiving, I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my clients. You help me grow as a photographer each time you book a session, refer a friend, or even like my work on social media. I’m also thankful for this family – new clients who were open to a new location. They really toughed out cold, windy weather this afternoon, especially after just returning from a trip to Hawaii! I think the end result was worth it.

Family Portraits | Downtown Parkville

Fall weather has finally arrived in Kansas City. The wind was brisk, but the sun was shining and the mood was upbeat at this weekend’s portrait session in downtown Parkville. This continues to be one of my favorite places to take photos, with so many quaint storefronts and neat buildings. I had a great time getting to know this family and capturing their personality!
