Family Portraits | The Iconic Loose Park

Are you even a photographer if you don’t take photos at Loose Park in the fall? I think not, given the number of photographers we encountered at last weekend’s portrait session. It was the perfect evening, the leaves were at their peak, and the roses were still in bloom, so it’s no surprise it was the place to be. Despite all the other people, it was worth it. Loose Park might just have the best fall foliage in all of KC. (My fall wedding photos were even shot there a number of years ago!) Bonus: seeing cousins I hadn’t seen in almost two years! I love, love how these photos turned out, just like I love this family.

Family Portraits | Rainy Spring Day

Last weekend’s family portrait session almost got rained out, but the skies parted up just in time. Little Dean just turned two, and I have to say, he did amazing! He posed and smiled perfectly … he must have had his photo taken a time or two before. 🙂 Enjoy these photos from the beautiful Loose Park, and check out how Dean has changed since his one-year shots.

Portrait Session | Miss M’s Family

I had such a great time taking portraits for this energetic family yesterday. My husband teaches with “Miss M,” and I joke that I didn’t know her first name for at least a year, since he tends to call his coworkers by the same names the students use. Despite the chilly temperatures and brisk wind, these two feisty, fun kids did a great job posing and being themselves. (Mom and Dad did pretty well, too.) I’m so happy with how these turned out – I can’t wait to edit the rest!

Portrait Session | Addison’s Family

We made the best of the 97 degree heat yesterday during this family photo shoot. Two-year-old Addison has a mind of her own, but she’s so darn cute, I couldn’t help but smile as she continuously wandered off, especially when she stopped to smell the roses. Literally! What a cutie! I love this family to death and I’m so happy they allowed me to shoot their family portraits. The last photo is my favorite, hands down.
