Family Portraits | Lake Lenexa

Last weekend I took photos of my most loyal customers at a new location to us – Lake Lenexa.! Even though the fall leaves weren’t quite at peak yet, the colors and the setting were gorgeous. And I snapped a few extras of their sweet, independent girl – who is almost three!

Check out last year’s portraits here.







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.

Family Portraits | Still Love This Family

I had the privilege of shooting photos for this fun family this weekend. I’ve been doing photos for them since they got engaged about six years ago! I’ve come a long way as a photographer since then. The entire family is so photogenic – it’s never hard to walk away with a ton of great pics. I also got to do the little one’s one-year photos … more on that to come!
