Family Portraits | New Baby

It’s always fun to meet new families through mutual friends, especially when there’s a sweet baby involved! This family welcomed me into their home to climb on chairs, crawl up on their bed, get down on their floors, and get up close and personal for some beautiful family shots. It was a great session to finish out the year.

Thank you to all of my clients for a rewarding year of making memories! Happy holidays. See ya next year!

Family Portraits | The Iconic Loose Park

Are you even a photographer if you don’t take photos at Loose Park in the fall? I think not, given the number of photographers we encountered at last weekend’s portrait session. It was the perfect evening, the leaves were at their peak, and the roses were still in bloom, so it’s no surprise it was the place to be. Despite all the other people, it was worth it. Loose Park might just have the best fall foliage in all of KC. (My fall wedding photos were even shot there a number of years ago!) Bonus: seeing cousins I hadn’t seen in almost two years! I love, love how these photos turned out, just like I love this family.

Fall Family Portraits | Ernie Miller

I’m always excited when I have new clients entrust their family photos to me. I try my best to put them at ease – it’s ok if comfort items make it into the shots, and it’s totally fine if not everyone looks at the camera all the time! I’m so happy with how these shots turned out of these sweet little boys and their parents.

Sar-Ko-Par Trails Park | Fall Family Session

This family has photo-taking down to a science. They know how to make each other laugh, pose, and smile just right for the camera. And the kids know that the faster they do it, the sooner they’ll get their yummy supper or treat. I love it! I always appreciate my loyal customers who come back for photos every year – it’s so fun to see how they grow and change! Here are a few of my favorites from last week’s session.

Parkville Nature Sanctuary | Family Portraits

The leaves are just starting to turn in the Midwest, but it’s prime time for fall portraits. The Parkville Nature Sanctuary proved to be a great spot, with trickling streams, unique tree stumps, and native plants. This family is always up for getting outside and immersing themselves in nature – I can tell it’s their happy place. #icanrelate I can’t wait to see how much these kiddos grow to love the outdoors as they age. See how they’ve changed just since baby Will’s newborn photos 6 months ago!
