First Birthday Portraits | Happy Baby

I absolutely love taking first birthday photos! They can be hard – toddlers don’t exactly sit still – but their first steps, smiles, and laughs are the best. As you can see, sweet Hollyn is one happy baby! See how she’s changed since her newborn photos a year ago.

Back in business | Family portraits

Aside from a few mini sessions during the stay-at-home order, I haven’t had the opportunity to do portraits in many months, so I was more than excited to take one of my favorite families’ annual portraits last weekend! If you haven’t had family photos taken lately…outdoor portraits are a great way to support local photographers from a safe distance.

Sidenote: now is also the time to book 2021 senior portraits!

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!

The Holiday Season

It’s been so long since I’ve posted any personal photos on the blog; I’ve been slacking on pulling out the camera to take candids of my family. I caught a few good ones during the holidays, although not as many as I would have liked. Below are a few of my favorites!
