Maternity Photos | Baby #2

Remember this cute couple? They’re due with baby #2 next month! We spent some time last week at Shawnee Mission Park at sunset, capturing photos of mama and her adorable “bump”, proud big brother, and the happy couple. I cannot wait for the newborn snuggles!

Portrait Session | Anniversary Photos – Wedding Dress and All

This is the first couple I took “professional” photos for – engagement photos over a decade ago. Now, ten years later, I have the honor of shooting their anniversary photos – with Lauren in her beautiful wedding dress (it still fits!), and their three children. I love the idea of re-creating wedding photos to show what has changed, and what hasn’t, over the last decade. I may even steal the idea myself next year. 😉 Congratulations to Lauren and Justin on their 10-year anniversary, and thank you for your continued faith in me to capture your beautiful family!

Portrait Session | Lots of Smiles

I’m excited to welcome back one of my most loyal families. I’ve taken photos for them since their engagement – now their oldest is six and their youngest is almost three! It’s fun to watch the kiddos grow from the photographer’s perspective and see how much easier portrait sessions get as they mature. Although I always love a little bit of crazy thrown in!

Portrait Session | Silver Anniversary

Last weekend I had the opportunity to take photos for this couple’s 25th wedding anniversary! We’ve been family friends for years – in fact, Tom was the one who came to the rescue and gave us a ride on our wedding day when our Bentley broke down. They are the type of people you know will do anything for you, so I felt honored to help them commemorate their big day!
