Family Portraits | Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art

My most recent outdoor session couldn’t have been more perfect weather! We went to the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art, and I quickly remembered why it makes one of the best portrait locations in the city. You’ve got urban designs, ornate structures, art sculptures, and beautiful nature all rolled into one. I never get tired of photographing this family and watching their kiddos grow – much too quickly – each year!

Newborn Session | Nora Jean

World…meet Nora. She was absolutely adorable throughout her modeling debut, and it was great catching up with her parents and watching them fall so naturally into parenthood. I’m honored to be a part of capturing their early memories together! Here are just a few of my favorites.

Team Tallmadge | Party of Five

I’m so, so excited for Team Tallmadge to be adding a new baby to the family! We really struggled finding a nice outdoor/nature location in early April that didn’t look totally brown. We settled on Ernie Miller Nature Center, and I’m so happy we did. I just love how these turned out with the tall grasses and bridge. If you’ve thought about doing maternity photos but have reservations, contact me for a free consultation! I’m here to make you feel beautiful and relaxed and capture those one-in-a-lifetime memories.

Family Portraits | New Baby

It’s always fun to meet new families through mutual friends, especially when there’s a sweet baby involved! This family welcomed me into their home to climb on chairs, crawl up on their bed, get down on their floors, and get up close and personal for some beautiful family shots. It was a great session to finish out the year.

Thank you to all of my clients for a rewarding year of making memories! Happy holidays. See ya next year!

Glamorous Senior Photos | KC

Amongst all the fall family photos, I had the opportunity to take Eva’s senior photos in early November. I’ve been so excited to share this sneak peek with you! From the poses, to the smiles, to the flattering outfits…these are practically perfect in every way. Amiright? She made my job easy…the shooting part…not so much the selection part. We started in the West Bottoms, headed to Quality Hill downtown, and finished in a Lenexa field at sunset.

Parkville Nature Sanctuary | Family Portraits

The leaves are just starting to turn in the Midwest, but it’s prime time for fall portraits. The Parkville Nature Sanctuary proved to be a great spot, with trickling streams, unique tree stumps, and native plants. This family is always up for getting outside and immersing themselves in nature – I can tell it’s their happy place. #icanrelate I can’t wait to see how much these kiddos grow to love the outdoors as they age. See how they’ve changed just since baby Will’s newborn photos 6 months ago!

Family Portraits | Colorful KC

I got to welcome back this family a couple of weeks ago! I always love taking their photos every spring or summer, and I have so much fun trying out new places with them. Julie (mom) helped me locate some great murals in downtown KC, and they met me bright and early to get some awesome shots. There were so many beautiful, colorful images, it was hard to pick favorites for this post!
