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!

Thankful | Family Portraits

As we approach Thanksgiving, I just want to say how thankful I am for all of my clients. You help me grow as a photographer each time you book a session, refer a friend, or even like my work on social media. I’m also thankful for this family – new clients who were open to a new location. They really toughed out cold, windy weather this afternoon, especially after just returning from a trip to Hawaii! I think the end result was worth it.

Family Portraits | Downtown Parkville

Fall weather has finally arrived in Kansas City. The wind was brisk, but the sun was shining and the mood was upbeat at this weekend’s portrait session in downtown Parkville. This continues to be one of my favorite places to take photos, with so many quaint storefronts and neat buildings. I had a great time getting to know this family and capturing their personality!
