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!

Family Portraits | Nature Sanctuary

I had the honor of taking this family’s wedding photos a number of years ago, and then portraits when their oldest was born. I was so excited to reunite again to shoot family photos and few 6-month photos of their youngest! We found some great spots in the early-morning secluded Ernie Miller Nature Sanctuary. Here are just a few of my favorites!

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.

Senior Portraits | Spencer

My sister started talking about me shooting my nephew’s senior photos back when he was in middle school. It seemed so far off. He was, after all, only six when I got married. But with the blink of an eye, here we are. His senior year. Last weekend, I had a great time visiting both recognizable and unique spots around Topeka to capture his senior photos. There are SO many images to choose from (over 600, to be exact). Here are a few of my favorites.

Do you have a student graduating high school this year? It’s not too late for portraits! I think fall is the best time for photos, and turnaround time is just a few weeks. Contact me if you’d like to discuss.
