Miss M | Three Months Old

Little Miss M turned three months old today. I’ve been back at the office full-time for a week, and I’ll admit it’s hard to be away from her all day. It also takes me two hours to get myself and both girls out the door in the morning, and that’s with an hour of prep the night before. But we’re adjusting well, and she’s such a blessing! She smiles and talks and continues to grow like a weed. She’s 12 pounds – so she doubled her weight in just 3 months! Check out how she’s changed.




Miss M Meets Great-Grandma

My dad, the girls (ages 3 and 5.5 weeks), and I took a 7-hour round trip to Shelbina, MO yesterday to visit my grandma. She was tickled to meet Miss M and see Lil’ Miss K again. She’s 93 years old but still hasn’t lost the “touch” when it comes to babies! Miss M has now met both of her great-grandmas.

Happy birthday, Grandma!

Today is my grandma’s 92nd birthday! She lives on the other side of the state, but luckily we had time to make the long round-trip drive yesterday to wish her a happy birthday. I’m glad she did – she was all smiles!

Family Portrats – Liberty Memorial

I loved working with this family last fall, and I couldn’t be happier that they asked me to do their extended family portraits this spring! Kansas City’s Liberty Memorial is a great place for photos – the obvious iconic memorial, the city skyline, the steps and stone, and the greenery offer a ton of variety. I was pumped that they had a few of their own ideas for fun poses. And what’s not to love about mint green Chuck Taylor’s?

Portrait Session | Unique Location, Fun Family

In addition to shooting Damon’s senior portraits yesterday, I got to take photos of his immediate and extended family! They had done their research and preparation on location, poses, and props – which made my job easy. Not to mention how photogenic they were. I loved shooting at Krug Park in St. Joe. You can hardly tell it’s a park from the cool stone backgrounds.

Portrait Session | Miss Sophia

I couldn’t wait to get home and start editing photos from this afternoon’s photo session with sweet Sophia! She was so energetic, cooperative, and adorable. Of course, we met on the hottest day of the year thus far, but we tried to stay out of the sun as much as we could. We did her photo shoot at one of my favorite locations – the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. Take a look back at the photos I took of her when she was just a baby!
