Brooke & Mitch are married!

Brooke and Mitch had just the right amount of overcast on their spring day for their wedding last Saturday. We were thankful it didn’t rain during pictures because I just knew we had to take advantage of Lake Shore Plaza’s beautiful view of Lake Lotawana. Those docks, the tiki torches along the water, the fog and […]

Sarah & Brandon | Hawthorne House

Congratulations on such a light, heart felt wedding occasion. Sarah & Brandon are another one of my couple’s I think look just alike, and are perfectly complimentary of one another.

A cd of all your images is NOT fine art..

Why photographic art matters and is so important.. “It’s been a hard day. You’re tired–and let’s face it–a little cranky. OK, a lot cranky.

A love of every color + The “bra” is engaged {KC Beloved}

Before I started looking at these pictures to edit them… I didn’t even realize Bethany & Adam’s initials together spelled BRA. How did I not see this during their session? So funny, I thought I’d keep it. Just one more silly thing we had at this Longview Beloved session in Lee’s Summit Missouri, where it […]

Their family and friends perfectly fall into those categories just as much. We very much have loved getting to know this darling couple, discovering all sorts of […]
