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!

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.

Portrait Session | Cash

I had a great time photographing the most well-behaved toddler this weekend! Maybe those of you who know him are laughing, but he was perfect for the photo shoot! He’s not even two yet, but he listened, posed, smiled, and was the best little subject. I did find out he loves rain puddle, though. 😉 We had fun running around downtown Parkville, MO – a cute town with tons of photo ops. We even ran into Elvis, who sung a little Johnny Cash for us.

Photo(s) of the Day: Happily Ever After

Last weekend I got to be a part of a truly picture-perfect wedding. The weather was gorgeous (actually, hot for October), the bride was breathtaking, and most importantly – the couple was so obviously in love. A perfect beginning to a beautiful marriage.

(Since I was in the wedding, I unfortunately didn’t get to take many pictures.)

Has it really been five years?

Today is our five-year wedding anniversary. Has it really been that long? I remember every detail of the day so vividly, it feels like yesterday.

We looked so young.

The weather was absolutely perfect.

I still blame the hubby for the Bentley breaking down … maybe in another 20 years he’ll blame me. 🙂

Here’s a toast to many more years together.

I hope we can still dance like this at our 50-year wedding anniversary. Wait, who am I kidding? We can’t dance like that now.

We’ve been through many life experiences – going back to school, job changes, buying a car and home, vacations, and of course most importantly – a beautiful baby girl. Happy anniversary hubby! Five years is just the beginning.

These photos were all taken by Parigo Studios. We were so happy to have them as our photographers. I only added my watermark because I don’t want anyone stealing the photos.
