JASPER IS TWO

My sweet Jasper Quinn.  My fiercely independent, angelic, charismatic little two-year-old. I’m only uploading a few photos in this post and even though I’m about a month and a half late with it, I couldn’t skip this quick celebration of Jasper’s second birthday — and side-by-side comparison from last year.  What a wild year this has been […]

CLARK FAMILY

If two’s company and three’s a crowd, then this is definitely a party!  I mean, not only are Heather and Bryan some of my dearest friends, their children are the absolute sweetest!  A home and hearts filled with lots of love and loads of fun.  Being around them makes me want to have like 10 more babies.  […]

ANDERSON FAMILY

Because, family.  It’s pretty much everything and I’m pretty blessed that these are mine.  My people.  Hanging out on an early autumn morning.  Soaking in the warmth of the bright sun and colorful surroundings, exploring the sights, smells and textures of the prairie.  Capturing these fleeting moments in time.

Jackson Family

Life is so darn fascinating.  I mean, if you would have told me 25+ years ago, that I’d remain close friends with that boy who lived 3 houses down, and he’d grow up to marry one of my very best friends, and we’d all have babies of our own who would grow up together…I’m not […]

Luke Family

Before the leaves started changing, when everything was green, enjoying the end of summer/beginning of fall calm and celebrating these fleeting moments with balloons, some giggles and a lot of love.  I feel like there is strength and understanding carried in the term “good people”.  And these are some good people.  <3

Perry Family & Aston’s 1-Year

This little guy just turned 1 this past weekend.  He and my son share a birthday which is pretty special to me because his momma has been one of my dearest friends for the last 17ish years.   She also happens to have been one of my very first models, posing for me back in my first high […]

David & Stefani Engagement

These lovebirds had their engagement session last month.  We started it out overlooking the KC skyline which also happened to overlook Union Station — the place where they got engaged.  It was the perfect little accidental happenstance, which gave these early photos  just a bit more sentimental value.  I can’t wait to photograph the wedding next month in […]

STAPLES FAMILY ARTWORK

When I first walked into the Staples family home I immediately got a glimpse of one of its greatest features — the wall of windows overlooking a wooded back yard.  It is gorgeous and picturesque on it’s own but there was a blank wall in the room that begged for some art.  They already thought […]

KINZER FAMILY

A beautiful evening on the lawn of one of my favorite places in Kansas City.  From what I understand, it had been a while since this whole family had gotten together for a formal picture.  So in honor of the first grandson, son, nephew, and cousin heading off to college, the Kinzer family wanted to squeeze in […]

SMOUSE-GOMEZ FAMILY

This little family is just as sweet and chill as they look in their photos.  I love that you can really see the essence of them through this session.  We may have gotten a few sprinkles on us but after rescheduling once already, they were troopers and wouldn’t let it rain on our parade.

FISCHER FAMILY PHOTOS + CUSTOM ART PIECE

I have had the pleasure of photographing this little girl many times since she was a tiny baby.  So after taking some of her family’s photos this past spring, I was super excited when her momma asked me to do a custom art piece featuring little Ensley.  The finished artwork was printed large scale on canvas and […]

JACKIE IS 9 MONTHS OLD

This little sweet pea has a very special place in my heart — she’s my niece!  Taking her 9 month photos was extra special and a tad bit nostalgic for me because my little guy, Jasper was exactly this age when she was born.  It’s been a joy watching her grow over these past 9 months.  She’s crawling, standing […]

WELLES MOORE’S NEWBORN PHOTOS

Introducing, Welles Moore! I recently had the pleasure of photographing this little fellow and at barely a week old, he was wide awake, wiggly and alert as could be for most of our time together.  He is seriously just the sweetest guy ever. <3

BECAUSE A WEBSITE MAKES IT “OFFICIAL”

This has been a loooong time coming.  As many of you know, I’ve been doing freelance photography and paintings for years now.  But, there’s just something about having a website that makes things a little more “official”.  And at last, it’s finally here.  Definitely still a work in progress but I’m very excited to have it up […]
