Nora Turns 2!

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.

Blessings!

Reynolds Wedding – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

The amazing story of two who loved, and chose to take separate paths many years ago, but fate brought them back together 20 years later to reunite. I get goosebumps when I think of these two’s story. I was honored to capture this wedding and it was pretty special as I went to school with both of them as well. The love is undeniable. The photos tell the story, I’ve never witnessed two people so deeply in love, and time has nothing on them. Congratulations to you both and your families. So very happy for you and thank you for the opportunity.

Blessings.

Cook Family – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

Sometimes the weather does NOT cooperate with photo-day. I am thankful to Brown’s Memorial Home(https://www.brownmemorialfoundation.com/brown-memorial-home) for allowing us to step inside and do some of the session on the porch and inside the home. I’m also grateful you cannot tell this is a cold and rainy day! 🙂

I am so blessed to know these people. Mrs. Cook is part of the reason I recently went to The Eagle’s Nest orphanage (http://www.eaglesnestint.org/) in Guatemala through an organization called the Orphan Door (http://www.theorphandoor.org/). I am forever grateful that God opened a door for me to be a part of the Medical missions team, and she was the messenger. Thank you. If it wasn’t for this family, and their willingness to allow God to use them, we wouldn’t have been introduced to the life changing experiences of international missions. Thank you for your encouragement and inspiration.

I have no idea what is next for you all, but I have a feeling it will be amazing. Though we live in a fallen and broken world, the Lord is present everywhere, His light shines through… if we just look for it!

Thank you for the opportunity to capture your family. You all are amazing people and I am honored to know you, even if it’s a little bit.

Blessings!

 

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!

Mini Sessions – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

What a day! Over 20 family mini sessions in one day. It was a bit windy but we made the best of it. The sun was shining and the dandelions were a plenty! This is the second year I have photographed mini sessions for the local hospital employees families and I have enjoyed getting to meet so many people in our community through this. Thank for the opportunity!

Blessings!

Cooper Maternity Session – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

What a beautiful day for a session. The setting for these photos was none other than their home out in the country, and what a beautiful setting it is. The Cooper story is precious and I’d give you details, but it is their story to tell, just know that God showed up huge in their lives and maybe by the photos you can see a bit of the story unfold. Thank you so much for the opportunity. Can’t wait to see that baby ❤

Blessings!

My Family – Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

In the grand scheme of life, the one thing we hold nearest and dearest to us is our family. No matter the age, the size, the color, the sex, the job, the birth order, the differences in opinions, the blood line… none of it matters…. There is no separation in family, there are no LABELS in family. I am beyond blessed with such great people to do life with and I was honored to take our own family photos. I love you all dearly.

Blessings ❤
