I love, love the location this family chose for their portraits this year! The Museum at Prairie Fire proved to be a gorgeous spot (besides the wedding going on inside…preventing us from getting close). The bright colors in the background, the native plants, the reflections from the exterior glass, the beautiful evening … it was perfection!
The more senior photos I shoot, the more I love it! I enjoy the posing, attention to detail, and bringing out confidence in others.
Meet Taylor. As my cousin, it feels like she just started kindergarten yesterday. Yet here she is, all grown up and gorgeous! As you can imagine, narrowing down the photos was the hardest part.
I had so much fun meeting so many new faces last weekend during this portrait session! It’s always a rare treat to photograph an entire family – from grandparents to grandkids. (This is also the first time we’ve had to get a photo permit, thanks to some fairly new rules in Loose Park in KCMO. It certainly did cut down on the number of photographers, though!)
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!
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.
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.
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!
A couple of weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet family and their brand new baby, just a few days old! Typically the newest of newborns sleep so much you can get those sweet posed, sleeping photos, but this girl was wide awake almost the whole session! We still got some adorable photos of her, proud big brother, and her glowing parents.
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.
Last weekend I had the honor of shooting maternity and family portraits for this beautiful family! We squeezed in the shoot right before a rainstorm at Ernie Miller Nature Sanctuary, but you’d never know it from how these turned out. Best of luck to them in the coming weeks as they become a family of five!
