What a great season for senior photos! Here are a few from the past few months of the upcoming graduating class of 2019 from across the state of Kansas!!!
Abby I hope you have a super awesome senior year! Work hard, enjoy(but not too much 😉 ) and let your sweet spirit and silliness shine.
18 years ago today I said “I do”. In celebration of the joy, love and strength that has been restored within me, and the love you’ve shown me through this amazing journey of marriage, I dedicate this to you, the Lord new exactly what kind of partner I needed. This 18 year old dress might not fit as well, it might be stained and torn a bit… nonetheless… it’s a celebration of a moment that changed my life forever for the better.
To my husband(Bill Barnes): You are an amazing blessing that I’ve been given, without you so much of my life would have never been restored… The Lord has blessed us. Thank you for being my support and partner in this life. I’ve enjoyed aging with you, growing in love, relationship and wisdom… you always make me feel loved and beautiful.
I love you always…
Sincerely, Your Bride

Small town Friday night lights is something that everyone should experience. Abilene is definitely known for a great student section, fans, band, cheerleaders and athletes and staff. This was Abilene’s first home game in which they won 14-12. Some amazing plays, hits and oh the skies!! The clouds were amazing! Enjoy and good luck this year Cowboys!
If ever I’ve had a family session that encompasses life with little ones this is it. This family is so very special to me as that sweet momma of 3 boys and 1 girl is one of my dearest friends. We’ve known each other for over 20 years and she is like a sister to me. I’m honored to take their family photos and if you haven’t already figured out, they are pretty awesome people. As I’m sure, most of us remember or have heard about the “2 year old faze”, they are busy and pretty much run the show, it’s such a busy time of life, but it’s gone before we know it.
A family of free spirits and lots of laughs… life is to short, have fun, laugh, love and enjoy the ride.
Love you guys.
Blessings to you and yours. ❤
A beautiful Kansas summer afternoon with sunflowers, burlap, barns and boots. Morgan and Lody are probably the most laid back couple I’ve ever met. No stress, just go with the flow and what a beautiful day it was. Morgan and Lody had their closest friends and family join them in an outdoor celebration at Sunny Side Pumpkin Patch in Assaria, KS. With hay bails for seats and wooden hearts to sign for the guest book, the details were just perfect for this young hardworking Kansas couple who we can now call Mr. & Mrs. Black. Congratulations to both of you. I wish you many many years of happiness. Thank you for letting me be a small part of your blessed day. Blessings.
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! ❤
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.
Now what 5 year old little girl doesn’t love making wishes, twirling, playing in a stream AND putting mom’s wedding dress on for picture day?!! We had so much fun at Wildcat Park doing all of these things and conversing about life as a 5 year old. Hazel is a take charge kind of girl and I love the leadership that shined through her personality. Hazel, Happy 5th Birthday and I hope you had the best princess party ever!
