Parkville Nature Sanctuary | Family Portraits

The leaves are just starting to turn in the Midwest, but it’s prime time for fall portraits. The Parkville Nature Sanctuary proved to be a great spot, with trickling streams, unique tree stumps, and native plants. This family is always up for getting outside and immersing themselves in nature – I can tell it’s their happy place. #icanrelate I can’t wait to see how much these kiddos grow to love the outdoors as they age. See how they’ve changed just since baby Will’s newborn photos 6 months ago!

Back to Portraits

Most of my clients typically stray away from doing photos in the heat of the summer, so this is my first portrait session in a month or so. We lucked out with a relatively cool evening. This is one of my favorite families ever (and yes, I’m partial because Julie is one of my best friends). The older kiddos are loads of fun, and 6-month-old Baby D couldn’t be cuter! He was enthralled with looking down at the grass, so we improvised and had Daddy “toss” him in the air to capture his smile from the right angle.

Family Portraits | How time flies

It’s been two years since I shot photos for this family. When they first booked the session, I though we’d done the photos just last year! Friday was a beautiful day, but still a bit chilly for an outdoor photo session, so we got creative on our indoor photo location. Anyone from the Kansas City area have any guesses on where these photos were taken? As always, I had a great time with this family, especially with the new little addition!
