World…meet Nora. She was absolutely adorable throughout her modeling debut, and it was great catching up with her parents and watching them fall so naturally into parenthood. I’m honored to be a part of capturing their early memories together! Here are just a few of my favorites.
Team Tallmadge | Party of Five
I’m so, so excited for Team Tallmadge to be adding a new baby to the family! We really struggled finding a nice outdoor/nature location in early April that didn’t look totally brown. We settled on Ernie Miller Nature Center, and I’m so happy we did. I just love how these turned out with the tall grasses and bridge. If you’ve thought about doing maternity photos but have reservations, contact me for a free consultation! I’m here to make you feel beautiful and relaxed and capture those one-in-a-lifetime memories.
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!
KC Newborn Cutie
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family and their brand new baby, just a few days old! Typically the newest of newborns sleep so much you can get those sweet posed, sleeping photos, but this girl was wide awake almost the whole session! We still got some adorable photos of her, proud big brother, and her glowing parents.
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 | At Home!
It was fun to visit this friend’s home for their family portraits last weekend – especially when they recently moved back from across country! Their backyard was the perfect setting for family portraits, especially with the warm fireplace so close by on the chilly morning. Welcome home, friends!
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.
Stagecoach Park | Family Portraits
It’s always fun to try out new places – last weekend I took this family to Stagecoach Park in Olathe. They were even willing to brave the chilly morning and meet me shortly after sunrise. And we even got some great smiles from the boys! I love these sweet kiddos (and Mom and Dad are pretty great, too).
Maternity Portraits | Nature Sanctuary
Last weekend I had the honor of shooting maternity and family portraits for this beautiful family! We squeezed in the shoot right before a rainstorm at Ernie Miller Nature Sanctuary, but you’d never know it from how these turned out. Best of luck to them in the coming weeks as they become a family of five!
