Family Portraits | Downtown Parkville

It’s the most wonderful time of year … for portraits! I shot two portrait sessions last weekend. I’ve known this family for many years, so I was excited when they reached out about family photos. We met in Parkville – one of the prettiest towns in the KC Metro area. And it didn’t disappoint! The kiddos were so fun and energetic, and we had a great time walking downtown and looking for fun photo ops. I think the morning was a success!

Miss Elena | Senior Portraits

I had the privilege of shooting Elena’s senior portraits last weekend. I’m always honored when new clients entrust me for monumental moments in their lives. Senior photos are something to be cherished forever – something to show your grandchildren one day. Elena is such a sweetheart, and she was a natural, as you can tell from the photos! I had such a tough time narrowing down the photos. These are just a handful of many of my favorites.

Fall portrait season in full swing

I was excited to photograph one of my “regular” families last weekend at the beautiful Black Hoof Park. The leaves were starting to turn, making for perfect fall portraits. I always appreciate their continued support and love watching their family grow up! The sibling bond between these three is the best.

Newborn Portraits | Baby Elaine

I am always honored when I’m asked to photograph a newborn, and doubly so when it’s for a new client. Little Elaine is a truly precious gift, and she did great in her modeling debut! It certainly didn’t hurt that Dada & Papa did an amazing job collecting props and coming up with ideas. Isn’t she perfect?

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!
