Family Portraits | At the Park

This family is too fun – especially little Oliver! Mama doesn’t care for the geese, but he sure has fun feeding them. And he’s such a great big brother to little Ben. I feel honored that they continue to ask me to capture moments of their family as the kids grow.

Family Portraits – Green Space

What a difference half a year can make! I took this family’s photos back in November, and I’m honored they asked me to do them again this summer. Little Oliver has changed so much! We tried out a new photo spot – Penguin Park in North KC. Not only is there a fun playground – there’s a lake with geese! I love how easy this family is to work with, and I can’t wait to finish editing the rest of their photos.

Day 362: Time to Fly South?

We’ve had unseasonably warm weather in the Midwest over the past few days; and that’s perfectly fine with me. I’m not a fan of sub-zero temperatures, ice freezing inside my windows, or dangerous road conditions. In fact, it’s so warm that these geese haven’t finished flying south yet! I got off work yesterday just in time to head to the park before the sunlight faded.

Day 161: Taking a Gander

Yesterday evening my sister and nephew stayed with us before heading to the airport in the morning. My nephew loves to feed the geese and the ducks at our pond. The goslings are now several weeks old and actually bigger (and meaner) than the full-grown ducks!
