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.

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!

Photo of the Day: Date Night at the Corn Maze

A couple of weeks ago my husband and I had a rare, fun evening date at the Liberty Corn Maze. Their mazes are amazing – five different mazes form a really intricate design – this year was the Kansas City WWI Museum. Four of them are over 2.5 miles long! We had a lot of fun finding the checkpoints throughout three of the four mazes.

A side note … this week we had a date night at our local library, watching Charles Dickens’ great-great grandson perform A Christmas Carol! Not only was the performance top-notch, but it was free. As infrequently as we do it, unique date nights are really key to keeping a relationship strong.

Photo of the Day: Country Morning Fog

We stayed at my in-laws this weekend in Southeast Kansas. As I stumbled my way downstairs, still half asleep around 7 a.m., I saw this out the front door. I immediately grabbed my camera and headed outside, barefoot and in my pj’s. My in-laws weren’t the least bit surprised when I came back in with wet grass clippings caked to my feet. They sure do know me! This photo is dedicated to my mother-in-law – today is her birthday!

Photo of the Day: A Beautiful Storm

Yesterday brought several rounds of quick, but fierce, thunderstorms through the Kansas City area. Some of my friends posted photos on facebook of some crazy-looking frontal clouds, but unfortunately I was stuck inside work without a good view. Yesterday at sunset, however, there were some storms off in the distance, causing the sky to have a really unique, gorgeous hue.
