This mama and I became fast friends through our kids a few years ago, so I was super excited and honored when she asked me to take their family photos. I love these kids and how they can be real around me. We got some great facial expressions, silly photos, and true authentic shots! These are just a handful of my favorites from the session. (And aren’t the fall colors gorgeous?)
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.
I’m in love with this beautiful new addition to our dining room! It’s called an orange star flower, and and I believe it originates from Africa. According to one website, it can be planted outside in zones 7-11. I live in northern Missouri, which I believe is more like a zone 6 – can anyone confirm? Will this plant die outside in the summer, or will it just not come back next year?
It’s official – my husband and I are taking a mission trip through Project H.O.P.E. to build homes in Nicaragua! To raise money for the trip, I am running a portrait special. You can get a one-hour Kansas City-area photo shoot, plus 20 of the best high-res photos on disc for just $79. My portrait session typically runs $79, so basically you get 20 digital photos free! I’ll be running this special through the end of June. Contact me to schedule your portrait session – dates are filling up quickly!
Yesterday was a very special day – our beautiful Baby K was baptized. We were so blessed to have so many people there to witness the occasion – close family, Godparents, friends from our small group, and a large and loving congregation. I feel so incredibly lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives … looking after and praying for Baby K. To all of you … thank you!
