Mommy and Me | Maternity Portraits

Last weekend I had the chance to shoot a friends’ maternity portraits with her little girl. I’m so impressed by how well little Nora did and how great the photos turned out! Both were naturals in front of the camera. Daddy is going to love his Father’s Day gift! (Shhh…if you know him…don’t tell!)

Portrait Session | one.

I feel like I just shot 6-month photos of this little guy … and now he’s ONE! He is one stylin’ kid – and the West Bottoms turned out to be a perfect backdrop. The balloons may have blown away and it was way too cold for a cake smash, but we still got smiles and loads of cuteness!

Portrait Session | Wild, Wild “West”

I had a great time taking photos of this wild & fun family in Kansas City’s West Bottoms this weekend. I’ve shot portraits there three times so far, and every time the backdrop has been completely different and unique. It continues to be a favorite spot of mine! This portrait session was won in a Relay For Life silent auction. I love doing photography for a good cause – and there’s no better cause than fighting cancer – something that touches us all. Bonus: this family was so great to work with…not to mention so photogenic!

I’m back!

Hey, there! It’s been a while. My family has been going through a lot of life changes – so many that I haven’t had a second to work on photos. Tonight, I decided to take a little break to edit photos from over a month ago, before Lil’ Miss K even turned two. Next, I’ll actually edit her birthday photos and post those. I’ve missed this little blog…I’ve definitely missed my photography.

These were taken in the West Bottoms in an attempt to get some two-year-old shots. Unfortunately Lil’ Miss K was in a clingy mood and a bit afraid of the bridge, so things didn’t go as planned. But we still managed to get a few keepers!

Holiday Portrait Session | West Bottoms KC

I’ve found my new favorite portrait location in Kansas City. I knew the West Bottoms would be a gem, but I was just waiting for the right family to go for it. I hadn’t seen these high school friends in over a decade, so it was fun to catch up and meet their kiddos. They did a super job just being themselves, which made my job pretty darn easy. Here are just a few of my favorites.
