Feature Video- Kansas Photographer – Family Photographer

Just a simple video with a few of my favorite family images from this past year. Absolutely blessed beyond words. Thank you to each of you who have trusted me with your families. ❤

Blessings!

Joy Session – Evans Family – Kansas Photographer

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. ❤

Joy Session – Rock Siblings – Kansas Photographer

The evening started out pretty cloudy and honestly I wasn’t sure that we would see the sun, but as God loves to prove me wrong over and over, the sun peeked out right at sunset and made for some great golden hour sunset photos.

What I can tell you about the Rock kids is they like to laugh. A very playful family who ended up laughing so hard while holding their brother that, yes, they dropped him. But he was a trooper and no one got hurt other than their bellies from laughing 🙂

You have a beautiful family, thank you for trusting me with your smiles.

Blessings.

L&M Wedding – Kansas Photographer – Sunny Side Pumpkin Patch

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.

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.

Senior Session 2017 – Wamego – Kansas Photographers

It was a normal hot Kansas summer day, but regardless of the heat we got some great shots in. Caleb is finishing his last year at Wamego High and he loves running XC and he also loves to laugh. Serious is not his forte, which I completely understand 🙂 Life is too short! Enjoy laughter <3. Caleb I hope you have a fantastic senior year and good luck!! Love that smile!

Senior Sessions 2017 – Ironwoods Park Leawood – Kansas Photographers

My first trip out to Leawood, KS and what a beautiful area!  This past Saturday I met up with 4 Blue Valley HS Seniors for a full day of photos. Although all photos where taken at the same park my challenge was to make each persons session individual for them. Many times we can go to the same park over and over and the challenge is to try to see something new. Ironwoods Park is gorgeous and I highly recommend it to anyone just to visit and take a walk, let alone have a photo shoot there.

These girls rocked out their sessions and we had an amazing time. We talked about their future plans and the excitement of their senior year. Girls, thank you for allowing me to spend the day with you and capture this milestone in your lives. Have a fantastic senior year and good luck beyond!!

Birthday Celebration – Style Session – Kansas Photographers

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!
