Fall Family Session: Kansas City Children and Family Photographer

Yesterday, I went out with the W family to take their fall family pics. (Mr. W is my principal, so I was a lil nervous!!) We had great weather, wonderful lighting...and the The above picture melts my heart.

Here is sweet Miss E. She pretty much ate the entire session. :o)

Here is big brother, O. He is a total crack-up!

Pretty E!

"Look at my belly button!"

And, the crazy-adorable W family. I seriously don't think I took a "bad" picture of them.

They were dressed *perfectly*! I loved that they weren't matchy-matchy!

Thanks again, W family for the opportunity! I had a great afternoon; your family is so sweet! I will have the rest of the pics for you tomorrow. I hope that you like what you see so far!

Brooke is 3 months old!

Today I went over to the B house and took pics of Miss Brooke and her big bro Brody! I can't believe how much she has changed since I did her newborn photos just 3 short months ago! Crazy! As always, the B family was very gracious and sweet, and I enjoyed my visit this morning. Look at how cute Brody is! Here is a lil fact....he just started preschool this year. :o)

And here is the star of the day, Brooke! According to her parents, she is much different from Brody. She isn't a big smiler, where as her big brother would smile at just about everything! We definitely got some sweet shots of her today. But, it wasn't too hard considering how cute she is! :o) I hope you enjoy your preview! Thanks for having me over this morning!

Miss Izzy

Tonight I met up with the D family to do their family pics, and their daughter Izabella's 2 year old pictures! Here is a bit of trivia...Izzy's mom has been one of my best friends for, wait for it, 15 years!!! Wow, that is hard to type! I am old! :o)

This girl is so cute. I loved her lil purple dress! She was very concerned about where Owen was, because her mom and dad told her that he would be there, and he wasn't! Oops!

She is a crack up. Don't you love the headband? We bribed her with many gummy fruits, and M&M's in order for her to keep it on! It was great to see you all tonight! I will keep working on these!

Holiday Mini-Session Announcement!

It is hard to believe that the Holiday season will be upon us in a little over 3 months. Where has the summer gone?! With that said, I wanted to post some information about two Mini-Session days that I am planning since I have had quite a few emails asking about holiday portraits! :o)

Morgan: Kansas City Senior Photographer

Tonight I met up with Morgan and her mom Tracee to take Morgan's senior pictures. We had so much fun. Morgan was a wonderful model and kept us laughing throughout the session. Let's just say I have about 20 images of her sticking her tongue out, lol. I must say that she has a very beautiful pair of eyes...don't you agree? :)

Miss Morgan even braved laying next to some ants to get this shot.

And we convinced her to lay in the grass even though she probably will wind up with some chigger bites. Sorry, Morgan!!

I love her smile.

Morgan and Tracee, I hope you guys enjoyed your sneak peek! I had a great time meeting you, Morgan!

Tonight we met up with Isabella and her mom Beckie for Izzy's 16 month portraits. Lucky for us, we are close with Izzy's family so we had a blast! We went to Loose Park, and got lucky with some wonderful lighting!

Izzy's big brown eyes are so gorgeous. I know that she is going to be quite the heart-breaker when she grows up! She is already after my son, so I have to be on my toes! :o)

This picture is my favorite. It is *so* Izzy. Girly, cutesy and sweet! She wasn't loving the tu-tu, so we had to make running across the bridge a game so that she would keep it on. And, some treats may have been handed out, but eh, whatever it takes! We had a wonderful time tonight, and Beckie and Sam, I can't wait to show you the rest!

Today I had the chance to go photograph 13 day old Brooke, and the rest of her gorgeous family. Her mommy looks *amazing*! I love the above shot, with Brooke peeking over Mom's shoulder. Brooke is a very strong-willed baby! She did not feel like being our model today, lol. That's okay, Brooke! You are so adorable I was able to get some super sweet shots.

Love the texture in this one. This is my new blanket and wrap. She liked to be swaddled.....didn't like being naked so much! :o)

Brooke's mommy is a hair-stylist, and she had an entire basket full of bows for the baby! Don't you love that pearl necklace?

Here is a shot of Brooke's brother, Brody and dad. Brody is such a crack-up! I learned that he likes suckers, and Yo-GabaGaba.

Brody! He even treated us to a special "Get Your Sillies Out" dance toward the end of the session. What a cutie. This picture puts a smile on my face! It was so nice to meet you, B family! You guys are so photogenic! Thanks for having me over today. :o)

Just one more, for now...: Kansas City Newborn Photographer

She looks so tiny in Mommy's arms. I am sure that I will post more than the standard "sneak peak" because this session was amazing!

Baby Sofie: Kansas City Newborn Photographer

Today I had a session with Miss Sofie. She is 8 days old, and just beautiful!! It took her a while to relax and close those eyes, but it was worth the wait! I got some great shots, and I am already having a blast editing these! Please enjoy your sneak peak, Kari and Sam! I hope that you like them as much as I do! :o)

She was so darn cute. Her little piggy-toes were moving during the entire session. :o) Again, congratulations on your daughter...she is so perfect!

The 3 Amigos: Kansas CIty Children's Photographer

This evening we went out with the Joel & Kristen and Beckie & Sam (and all of our kiddos!) to celebrate Sam's 28th birthday. We went to Los Compas on the square, and so we had a little "mini session" on the square with the kids! Hudson's smile is so contagious, isn't it?

He is getting so big!

I love this outfit. He wore it to Owen's first birthday party!

Sweet Izzy! She is such a sweet little thing....she looks so grown up with her mouth full of teeth!

Oh, those brown eyes kill me!!!

And literally the only usable picture that I manged to get of my child! PCS (Photographer's Child Syndrome" is bad with this one!) He is such a stinker!
