Family Portraits | A Day of Smiles

My second portrait session of the day last weekend was at E.H. Young Park along the Missouri River. It’s definitely a hidden gem…and so is this family! I love them to pieces. They all have such great smiles and beautiful hearts!

Mommy and Me | Maternity Portraits

Last weekend I had the chance to shoot a friends’ maternity portraits with her little girl. I’m so impressed by how well little Nora did and how great the photos turned out! Both were naturals in front of the camera. Daddy is going to love his Father’s Day gift! (Shhh…if you know him…don’t tell!)

Family Portraits | Skyline View

Last weekend I met up with one my regular families for their yearly photos. Even though we planned them a little earlier in the season, it was still cold! Last year, I helped take photos for a birth announcement. This year, they have a sweet new baby boy, just two days older than my baby girl. They always pick fun locations – this time we headed to Kaw Point for a view of the downtown KC skyline. I planned it for perfect golden hour lighting, but it was foggy with no sun in sight. Luckily we still got some keepers!

Family in the Fall

Large portrait sessions are sometimes hard to coordinate. We’ve been planning this one for almost a year, but a couple of circumstances delayed it for quite a while. It’s almost like it was meant to be – the weather was absolutely perfect! This family was full of laughter and jokes. Many changes in my life have slowed down my photography this year, but they made me remember exactly why I love taking portraits. Thank you for that! Oh, and a throwback: I took photos of the youngest a couple of years ago.

Portrait Session | Midwest Weather

I took these portraits last weekend in about 70-degree weather. This weekend it snowed. That’s the Midwest for you! I’m hoping for more spring and less winter in the near future. I love this family…and the fact that they always bring grandparents to the photo shoot to help wrangle the kids and make them laugh. It works like a charm!
