Newborn Portraits | Baby Elaine

I am always honored when I’m asked to photograph a newborn, and doubly so when it’s for a new client. Little Elaine is a truly precious gift, and she did great in her modeling debut! It certainly didn’t hurt that Dada & Papa did an amazing job collecting props and coming up with ideas. Isn’t she perfect?

Family Portraits | Long-time Friends

My first portrait session was about 12 years ago – an engagement session for this couple. Now they live across the country and have three kids who are growing up way too fast. But when they’re back home visiting family, I always love catching up and taking their photos. I was honored to shoot these in the church where they got married!

Family Portraits | On the Streets of Parkville

It’s been awhile since I’ve taken any family portraits – there’s something about humid Kansas summers that turns people away. But fall is here, and I got to shoot three family’s photos this weekend! First up is Lance and Sarah’s family – they are one of my regulars, and we went to one of my favorite spots for fall portraits – downtown Parkville, MO! It’s full of charing storefronts, historic buildings, trains, and fun murals. The boys are adorable, especially when Big Brother loves on Little Brother. Have a look!
