Lauren & Brennan, Nelson Atkins Engagement

Lauren & Brennan wanted a session at the Nelson Atkins Museum with that beautiful crisp fall air Kansas City offers for such a short time. Our fall’s timing has been odd this year. Later and later we all waited for the gorgeous yellows, oranges, and reds to pop up around the landscape. It’s like it […]

Lauren & Andrew, Liberty Memorial Engagement

Andrew is a pilot so he flew in for their engagement photos. We had to shoot this day. They are doing their love long distance. The forecast said no showers. I mean, he’s practically a meteorologist. Yet that rain decided it was coming whether we liked it or not. They could have been extremely frustrated […]

Erica & Peter | A Nelson Atkins picnic

If anyone can pull off a Beloved engagement session in the Kansas City summer heat, topping at 100 degrees, it would be these two! Besides the heat (or maybe including the heat? wink), this session represented exactly the relationship they have. Fun, fashionable, and relaxed as they picnic-ed at their favorite picnic spot in Kansas City, […]

Allie & her very hip family..

These girls really might be the most precious little things. Model poses, they’ve got it. Outgoing humor, they’ve got it. Rambunctiousness, they’ve got it. Cuteness, they’ve got it. Smarts and wit, they’ve got it. I easily kept mistaking them for teenagers or young adults. They were quicker in their wit and responses to my trying […]
