The Deltoro Family

For photographers, we all crave that perfect light around sunset, the “Golden Hour.” The way it gives everyone that perfect angelic halo glow, the softness in the shadows, the warmth as it hits our skin. I once had a session at sunset, but it was a gloomy day in Kansas City. The couple was about […]

The Pedersons Family

THESE TREES! …. and all these incredible smiles and eyes. The purple and white trees are so short lived here in Kansas City and I seriously love them for photos! I’m so glad we had one on the Bingham Waggoner property for these spring portraits of the whole Pederson family. What a great group of […]

Our sweet little baby room!

This is something you post in the first few weeks of baby being born. Maybe even before baby is born. Definitely with your newborn photos. But here we are, two years later and I’m finally sharing our personal, wild ones baby room. But nothing we do is ever “normal.” Late 2019, when our littlest guy […]

The Ergo Family at home

There’s been something so special about how covid has forced us to stay in, document in our yards, in our homes and stay intimate. Actually, I REALLY love coming to peoples homes and doing lifestyle sessions. They are so intimate, in your environment with all your favorite things. It’s so special. I hope we continue […]

The Tunbergs, Newborn

My dear I’m quite obsessed with this little family. Bo has been a great friend, providing lots of the video content you see for my business, working on lots of weddings and projects together. I felt as if I knew already his wife Mika already due to social media and hearing all about them from […]

The Gall Family

One of my mini sessions, and this one was so fun. Their playful poodle made his appearance, their kids were so joyful and attentive (seriously, never met kids who listened so well) and their overall stylish family just rocked this golden fall sunset. I absolutely admire Beth & Zach beyond words. These two are such […]

Jenn & Homer, 1st Family Photos

I can’t even begin to understand what it has been like for my couples who have planned weddings during this covid season, or more importantly who have HAD BABIES during this time. What a crazy experience I’m sure. For my awesome couples like Jennifer and Homer, they had their baby and then just a couple […]

The Bandy Family

Lifestyle sessions are my favorite. Especially when they involve everyone making breakfast together, jumping on the trampoline and playing in their secret play rooms. I always adore photographing this family in their environment. These girls will rule the castle one day. A real castle somewhere. Believe it. Enjoy family time at home with this little […]

Muehlfelder Family

These stylish little girlies were the best smilers and so attentive their whole family session in Kansas City at the Loose Park’s Rose Garden last week. With their fur, matching golden bows, their baby blonde hair and curly sue hair, and super hip shoes they were totally portrait ready. I’m always so much more pleased […]

Remi, 8 months old

I can’t believe Remi is already 8 months. He’s getting so strong and it’s adorable seeing his personality start to shine through. Too many expressions to count. He’s loving the outdoors and tons of kisses from mom and dad. Enjoy watching this little one grow, below.

This week, I got to visit mommy and daddy and all the girls again. The newborn twins changed so much just in these few […]
