Portrait Session | Anniversary Photos – Wedding Dress and All

This is the first couple I took “professional” photos for – engagement photos over a decade ago. Now, ten years later, I have the honor of shooting their anniversary photos – with Lauren in her beautiful wedding dress (it still fits!), and their three children. I love the idea of re-creating wedding photos to show what has changed, and what hasn’t, over the last decade. I may even steal the idea myself next year. 😉 Congratulations to Lauren and Justin on their 10-year anniversary, and thank you for your continued faith in me to capture your beautiful family!

Family Portraits | Beating the Heat

Last weekend I shot family photos in the Leawood area, and despite the extreme Kansas heat, it didn’t slow down the energy of these adorable boys (or their parents)! I always enjoy shooting photos for this family – they’re so kind and so much fun. And those eyes on the boys!

Portrait Session | Lots of Smiles

I’m excited to welcome back one of my most loyal families. I’ve taken photos for them since their engagement – now their oldest is six and their youngest is almost three! It’s fun to watch the kiddos grow from the photographer’s perspective and see how much easier portrait sessions get as they mature. Although I always love a little bit of crazy thrown in!

Family Portraits | Skyline View

Last weekend I met up with one my regular families for their yearly photos. Even though we planned them a little earlier in the season, it was still cold! Last year, I helped take photos for a birth announcement. This year, they have a sweet new baby boy, just two days older than my baby girl. They always pick fun locations – this time we headed to Kaw Point for a view of the downtown KC skyline. I planned it for perfect golden hour lighting, but it was foggy with no sun in sight. Luckily we still got some keepers!

Family Portraits | Fall at the Nature Sanctuary

I’ve known this mama for a number of years now, but I was so excited when she asked me to do family portraits so I could meet her two leading men! I also got to explore a new location – the Parkville Nature Sanctuary. It’s one of my new favs. You can’t beat a waterfall in Missouri! And little six-month-old Dean couldn’t be more adorable … I’m looking forward to editing the rest of the photos just so I can keep looking at that sweet smile!
