Voigts Family Session – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

I always enjoy the opportunity to capture some of my own family. It was a windy day out at the Ottawa/Baldwin area. We had such a beautiful backdrop at the family’s home though. Regardless of the crazy Kansas weather we got some shots in before the storms came. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Voigts on your Anniversary.

Blessings!

Darius Senior 2017

What an amazing session. I loved the old feel of these photos and the way it seems as if he stepped out of a time warp. The emotion and mood of this session was so unique. I love trying new looks and new vantage points. Darius I hope your senior year is filled with blessings and good luck beyond! You will do great things!

Stacked Up Snowflakes!

I realize I am WAY behind on posting, but this actually was such a strange random day to get snow. It was last month and it randomly snowed these HUGE flakes and then 30 minutes later they were gone. So pretty. Excited I was able to capture them and the sunshine just barely grazing them. I’ve never seen stacks like this before. Enjoy

Blessings!

A Very Merry Christmas to You! – Nature Photographer – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

A¬†quick post this Christmas day to share just a few¬†blessings from above on this wonderful day. God speaks in Nature ‚̧

This was the first Christmas I can recall in my 41 years in Kansas that thunderstorm watches were in effect and the temps were in the 50s. Though the wind blew and the rain came, at the end of the day, God shone through.

These photos were taken about 30 minutes before sunset. I had been inside all day, enjoying time with my family, opening gifts, playing ping pong, my hubby cooked an air fry turkey(you have to try it! AMAZING!) and just chillin’ with the fam…. I felt the need to get with nature late in the afternoon and took off in my pj’s, yes, I was in my pj’s ALL DAY… LOL. That’s just how we roll on a relaxing day at home on Christmas…. I digress…

Within 15 minutes of leaving the house the skies changed, drastically. It was absolutely breathtaking. What a blessing, truly a gift from God. If you notice the barn photo, the shadow casting on the barn is a cross, it lined up perfect, it was from a telephone pole from behind me, something that usually annoys me in my nature photos, not this time, definitely felt it was meant to be seen and left.

Anyway, enjoy and be blessed by God’s beauty. ‚̧

I wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! Enjoy your family and friends.

Blessings…

The Barnes Family (Yep I took our own family photo ūüôā Tripod and remote clicker! ‚̧ )

T & K Wedding – Kansas Photographer – Wedding Photographer

Meet Thomas and Katelyn. These two, down to earth country loving people, are just about the sweetest couple I’ve ever met. Family is through and through with these two, they both have younger siblings they love too pieces and the closeness of the whole family was beyond evident. Just a few things that accented the day were, boots, shotgun shells, burlap, antlers and my favorite… laughter. It was a beautiful day for an intimate quaint wedding on a hillside in central Kansas. The love between these two was gleaming(see his first look below!)¬†and a little side order of sass showed up too(Bride and groomsman shot!). Thomas and Katelyn, I wish you many many years of love, laughter and sassiness. You two truly are so very wonderful.

Blessings

Cows? – Nature Photographer – Kansas Photographer

Of the many subjects I have photographed, cows are a relatively new subject. Not that I didn’t grow up on a farm¬†feed them and water them or that I’ve lived in Kansas my whole life and see them everyday, but to photograph them, I just haven’t. A few weekends ago my husband and I went¬†out to the Flint hills as my in-laws have land out there and we like to go hunting and explore the beauty of the land. After our morning hunt we decided to head out and visit grandpa and grandma’s cows. As they followed us, in hopes for us to throw them some apples or pears, they were¬†like little ducks behind their momma as we road around in the jeep. These are just a few of my favorite photos of the herd checking us out as we explored in their roaming field. ¬†Such a beautiful morning and so thankful we decided to explore the land. Enjoy! MOOOO

 

Joy Session – Siblings – Kansas Photographer

A fun sibling session before big brother went off to college. As much as these kiddos can get on each other’s nerves, they do truly love each other. We laughed a lot, were extremely goofy and had a beautiful sunset for some great silhouette shots, AND lots of hugs and kisses too!! Good luck in school this year to all of you! ‚̧

Style Session – Kansas Flint Hills – Kansas Photographers

I will be partial to this post as this is my daughter. Adventurer at heart and laughter is a must, she is brilliant and she is beautiful. ¬†We frequently travel to the Flint Hills as we have family within 5 miles of this spot. I’ve never taken photos up here¬†other than nature photography,¬†but this weekend, we made it happen. As we were down at the family farm visiting grandpa and grandma, I told Abby to throw in a dress and we’d just see what happens and if we can make time for it. I’m so glad we did. One of my biggest challenges as a photographer has been transitioning from nature photography to people photography and how do I blend them well. How do I make the land look beautiful and the person look beautiful. It’s a balance as one cannot overtake the other. She’s just beautiful and this place, well you can see. Blessings.
