I try not to get on a soapbox much on my photography page as I have a blog for that, yet what I do want to say is these images represent something so simple yet so hard to find anymore for our young adults. Life is stressful for these kids, growing up today in this crazy media world is much more complicated that we realize. To me these images represent inner freedom, forgetting the junk, the news, the hard stuff, the mean people, the rumors, the big decisions that come with that senior year and just being free in the moment.
I believe many of us should take time to have these free moments, unplugged, just pure joy and laughter… anyway… off soapbox 🙂 Enjoy Miss Mariah, as she is representing a freedom we all need more of.
I was excited to explore a brand new(to me) location with Miss Hazel just outside of Wamego. What a gorgeous day, although the wind was a bit challenging, we made it work! Hazel I hope you had the best birthday, I love your big personality and those beautiful eyes. Thank you so much for trusting me with capturing your smiles, giggles and just you being you.
Life with boys; busy boys, goofy boys, wiggle worm boys and silly face boys. Many times groups can become upset, frustrated or even just want to quit a session all together due to children misbehaving. I’ve challenged myself over the past 2 years to help families understand the value of photographing life as it is. Boys will be boys, but some day they will be men. Kids will be kids and someday they will be grown adults. Learn to laugh at your kids silliness and their goofy personalities. Embrace the craziness for someday it will be gone.
The Haug family was wonderful with their patience in allowing the kids to be kids. We had silly photos, goofy photos, funny face photos and smile photos. I am grateful for the opportunity to capture you and yours.
Your family if full of love and life, laughter and giggles. That’s what it’s all about friends.
Starting out this 2018 senior’s session on a 100 degree day!! Can you tell?? I think we did a pretty good job of having fun regardless of the heat. What a fun way to start out the season exploring the community. Miss Kyra drove 3 hours for todays session!! OH MY. I am grateful <3. Thank you for the opportunity! ❤
If you would like to book a session please get ahold of me promptly, as dates are filling up fast. I do travel all over the state of Kansas and would be happy to go beyond the borders as well, so please let me know! Thank you!
What a beautiful young lady! Miss Logan started off my 2018 Senior photos year this past May. She is a very talented young lady and I am honored she asked me to take her photos. Logan is also a photographer and has done some amazing work! It’s always such an honor to photograph other photographers. There is a trust and understanding that goes into making that decision as an artist and I am always humbled when asked to do them. Best of luck this year and beyond. You will do great things!!
This is some of the most life changing and meaningful work I’ve ever done. I usually do not cross post with my personal blog and my photo page, but I think it’s vital to understand the work and what experience I had on a personal level within my job. I am blessed, humbled and forever grateful for the opportunity to travel to Guatemala and share life with these children and this medical team.

What a beautiful day out at Brown’s Park. The lighting was gorgeous, as were the colors. The Johnsons have recently had a new addition to their crew. These two sisters are pretty darn sweet and I would bet are keeping mom and dad pretty busy 🙂
Thank you so much for the opportunity to capture your family’s smiles.
I love telling stories and it’s an honor to tell a small part of other’s journey. Meet Nora, the miracle baby who made her way into this world under difficult conditions, yet she is thriving, living, loving and laughing. So many things in Nora’s life have been miracles, in the obstacles she and her family have overcome, and yet here comes another one. Miss Nora is going to be a big sister, a feet once though not possible. Nora, I hope you had the best 2nd birthday and I bet having a sibling might just be one of the best presents ever.
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.
