Family Portraits | Spring has Sprung

My first spring portrait session is in the books … and it got to be with one of my all-time favorite families! The kids have grown so much since last year’s portrait session. This time, we opted for the Parkville Nature Sanctuary, which made for a great place to shoot even when the sun was still high in the sky. Here are a few of my favorite images.

Family Portraits | Fall at the Nature Sanctuary

I’ve known this mama for a number of years now, but I was so excited when she asked me to do family portraits so I could meet her two leading men! I also got to explore a new location – the Parkville Nature Sanctuary. It’s one of my new favs. You can’t beat a waterfall in Missouri! And little six-month-old Dean couldn’t be more adorable … I’m looking forward to editing the rest of the photos just so I can keep looking at that sweet smile!

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!

Portrait Session | Cash

I had a great time photographing the most well-behaved toddler this weekend! Maybe those of you who know him are laughing, but he was perfect for the photo shoot! He’s not even two yet, but he listened, posed, smiled, and was the best little subject. I did find out he loves rain puddle, though. 😉 We had fun running around downtown Parkville, MO – a cute town with tons of photo ops. We even ran into Elvis, who sung a little Johnny Cash for us.

Portrait Session | Six Month Old Heidi

This weekend I had the pleasure of taking pictures of someone else’s baby for a change! This is one of my favorite photo sessions to-date. Six-month old Heidi was so happy and curious the entire time. Her parents both came up with ideas for the shoot and were open to my ideas as well. And … we had perfect weather! Here are just a few of my favorite images, taken at Park University.

Project 52 Week 44: Lucky Number Seven

This Sunday I took family portraits for some of my favorite people: my cousin, her husband, and their five kids. And I now have a favorite place to shoot portraits … Parkville, MO. I’ve spent quite a bit of time in the town, but the huge park, river, quaint downtown, railroad tracks, and beautiful Park University all make great backdrops.
