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.
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!)
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!
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 loved photographing Eli and his family in the West Bottoms this past weekend. It seems like his parents were just bringing him home, but he already celebrated his first birthday. He’s the happiest, smiley-est (yes, I said smiley-est) baby in town! He and his fun parents made my job easy. What a cutie!
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!
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.
