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!
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!
Our Glacier National Park vacation started with a couple of days in Seattle and an Amtrak ride to the park. Seattle has so much to offer, but my favorite site was the Chihuly Garden and Glass Gallery at the bottom of the Space Needle. I believe it was a temporary display, so I can’t say whether it’s still there. We actually went twice in one day – once in the afternoon and once after dark. Dale Chihuly is the guy who designed the glass work in the Bellagio in Las Vegas, if you’ve ever been there. His art is absolutely stunning, don’t you think? Have you ever seen his art in person?
Here are a few sneak peek photos from Saturday’s engagement photo shoot with Jennifer & Brian at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. I’ve known Jennifer since 5th grade, but it was great to finally meet Brian and see how happy they are together. And despite what they may say, they’re so photogenic!
(For those who don’t know, I do portraits in the Kansas City area. First-time customers can get the sitting fee and a high-res CD for $99.)
