Thankful | Family Portraits

As we approach Thanksgiving, I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my clients. You help me grow as a photographer each time you book a session, refer a friend, or even like my work on social media. I’m also thankful for this family – new clients who were open to a new location. They really toughed out cold, windy weather this afternoon, especially after just returning from a trip to Hawaii! I think the end result was worth it.





Family Portraits | Downtown Parkville

Fall weather has finally arrived in Kansas City. The wind was brisk, but the sun was shining and the mood was upbeat at this weekend’s portrait session in downtown Parkville. This continues to be one of my favorite places to take photos, with so many quaint storefronts and neat buildings. I had a great time getting to know this family and capturing their personality!





Family Portraits | Sweet Pups

One of my favorite portrait sessions each year is this family – because they let me shoot and design their humorous Christmas cards! They always have the most creative ideas. I can’t show their card just yet, but I did want to share a couple of photos of them. They are the nicest people you’ll ever meet, and their dogs are seriously adorable, sweet, and so well-behaved.




To be Two…

Oh, to be two and carefree again … I love the joy in my Lil’ Miss K’s face every time we go to the park. It’s about to turn cold here, so I probably won’t be taking any more of these photos for a few months.



Happy Halloween!

This little one doesn’t like getting dressed up. She doesn’t like things on her head. She doesn’t like fancy dresses. She barely lets me put her hair up. But after showing her Wizard of Oz music on YouTube, doing a “practice round” of trick-or-treating at a Friday night Trunk-or-Treat, she had a great time dressing up in her Dorothy costume and visiting our neighbors tonight! More candy? Yes, please!
