First of all, I want to apologize on behalf of this little one’s family… they had no idea that her birth would create some sort of time warp over the last year. Because there is NO WAY that 365 days have passed since these photos. But, somehow, the year IS gone, and she’s already celebrated her […]
I said this about a hundred times before, but the boss and I have got THE BEST friends. IN THE WORLD. And these three are no exception. WOO! Hot mama!YOU GUYS. I have got theeeeee MOST beautiful friends. I LOVE these two photos of her! YOU TWO! (well, you THREE!) You are THE BEST. You […]
Well, when I posted this post, I anticipated keeping these photos to just that – one post. Then, I realized I had a lot of photos (which is so true to form), so I posted this post, thinking – SURELY – that would do it. And, wouldn’t you know it… here I am, posting a third round. […]
I split this post into two because, as is usual, I took A LOT of photos of this kid. What can I say? I REALLY can’t help myself. :) She look so grown up in this photo, I can’t stand it. We left the park, warmed up in the car, and headed to Schenck Mansion to […]
I grew up in a biiiiiig family. The kind where I have 2nd, 3rd, and probably 4th cousins that I don’t even know. But, even so, I still found a way to attach myself to a couple of people in particular. This sweet one’s momma was one of those people. And now, this sweet one […]
As you should know by now, I LOVE taking photos of this kid. Kimber, Christmas, 2014She started walking this fall and is now a constant blur – it’s amazing that any of these are in focus. We busted out the sunglasses, found better lighting, and these have become some of my favorite photos of her.
We did photos for this sweet girl’s birthday before she actually turned one (the dilemmas of the baby living in one place and the photographer living in another). And, sadly, I wasn’t in town on her actual birthday or able to be at her birthday party. SO, when I was back in town, even thought it was […]
I LOVE this family. Absolutely, 100%. to 3 of my favorite people in the world:: thank you for letting me be the one to photograph your sweet (and beautiful!) little family :)
This family. Seriously. Mom and Dad are INCREDIBLY talented people, from photography to videography to graphic design to singing… I’m blown away on a regular basis. IT’S RIDICULOUS. :) AND THESE KIDS. Have you ever seen cuter curls? The kids are insanely cute because HOLY SMOKES, just look at their parents. WOWZA. (wait, did I […]
I can’t even believe a year has passed. This sweet girl made her debut here. Then again for Christmas. And more and more as she kept getting cuter and cuter. She has landed me jobs, started conversations with my favorite Property Brothers, been a constant face on my instagram, and has just been kiiiiiiilling it with […]
I’ve started mentoring sessions, and recently used one of my favorite families in the world as the mentoring session models. And it. was. perfect. I’ve got to get better at photographing the awesome people I’m teaching, but in the meantime, I am loving the no-pressure, quick snapshots I’m getting of our clients/models. (it’s kind of fun […]
Are you tired of seeing this sweet face? (I know, I know, like THAT is even POSSIBLE?!) Since no one will EVER tire of seeing how stinking cute and perfect this little one is, she will continue to hold a starring role around here for, well, the rest of time. And because she’s just as […]
You didn’t think yesterday’s post was all I had to show off of this sweet girl, did you? And, don’t be mistaken, these will by far not be the last I take of this sweet girl. As you can tell, I took these months apart from each other – some where shot in September, some in […]
Yep, more Christmas photos. I was holding onto all of these because each family was sending Christmas cards, and I didn’t want to spoil that for them! But, then the usual happened… I forgot I even had them. Yikes, I will be adding “GET ORGANIZED” to my daily schedule. First, one of my absolute, love […]
This isn’t this cowboy’s first time being shown off here. You can see his REAL newborn session HERE. But, I can’t get enough of him, and at some time post-newborn photos, I had my camera on hand when I was hanging out with him and his beautiful mama. Yep, this is another batch […]
So, I have a new website and blog. WHOOP! What do you think? I am pretty sure I love it. :) The AMAZING Kyla worked some awesome magic, and I just can’t get over how great it all looks. I’m still trying to figure out some things as far as this is an entirely new […]
This little miss is too much for words. I giggled at her larger than life personality, and “aaaw”ed at her sweet smiles and BEAUTIFUL blue eyes. But enough of me trying to introduce her. I’ll let her sweet face do the talking. :) The photo below is my favorite. Goodness, those eyes. To Little Miss […]
Before moving to Kansas, the family photography side of my business wasn’t a large one. Mainly because I didn’t push too hard to do these photos – I didn’t advertise them, and, frankly, I charged a higher $ to prevent an abundance of these sessions. They just weren’t something that fit my style, and they […]
I have no idea how to introduce this post. Every time I begin to write something, I get teary and smiley because I just love. this. family. You’ve seen them here a time or two before… like here. and here. aaaand here. oh, and here. and here. and also here. and probably even more places […]
I’m thinking you’ll recognize this gorgeous couple from when I obsessed over their wedding last year. …. GAH. I still can’t get over how beautiful everything was! Anyway, moving on…. I was so pumped to get to do family photos for them this year. The three of them are a ridiculously beautiful family […]
It’s really not fair, I know, but what can I do to help it? And it’s not like I would change it… I mean, would YOU? Yes, yes, I know that I have all of the world’s cutest babies in my life, but I’m sure you know some that are almost as cute. :) But I know. It’s not […]
Meet Ben+Leigh Ann+their 3 incredible kids. All five should just model full-time, no big deal… but I mean it, seriously. The lighting when we shot was horrible. I mean, HORRIBLE! There wasn’t a cloud in the forecast, it was beautiful out, and about 2 minutes into, it got SO DARK. So I start panicking, rushing, trying to […]
The bomb.com? I’m totally shouting my lameness at you. But it’s my bloggy, I’ll be lame if I want to. :)This family IS THE BEST. THE COOLEST. THE BOOOOMB.We just love, love, LOVE them all. I can’t say enough good things, so I’ll just show them off like I own them. They’re mine. If I […]
Writing this post fills me with all sorts of emotion. Happy because I love everything about these pictures. Sad because I know the time I get to spend with these three is about to become very limited. Excited because I know that what waits for us in KS is going to be the bomb. Mad […]
The last two weeks have been a complete whirlwind around here. The boss and I had plans to go out of town for Thanksgiving, so, being the OVER-planning person that I am, I began lists and preparations weeks ahead of time. …And then we had a last minute change in our plans – something the […]
I can’t explain the joy and love I feel for this family. Not to mention, they are all SO beautiful! I mean, come on, Paula! Gorgeous! I’ve never done maternity before, and I would say that Paula was the most perfect model to start with. :) And, of course, ALL of these photos are my favorites. But… […]
OH. MY. WORD. This little bundle of love turned one last week. ….. SHE’S ONE?!!! How is that possible?! Sheesh. Kids these days, turning one a lot faster than they did in my day, I tell ya what. :) She may be an official one year old now and officially on her way from of being a […]
Lydia was a true joy to photograph. She is such a happy baby! And that SMILE! My goodness, she made my job easy. cutest family ever, right? Ashley and David:: Thank you for allowing me the gift of spending time with you sweet baby girl! She is so incredible, and I am honored to have […]
This beautiful girl came to stay with me a couple of weeks ago. Her mama and daddy are two of our most favorite people in the entire world. And she ranks right up there with them. :) When Mama K asked if I’d be up for playing dress-up and taking some pictures, I laughed and said, “HA! […]
a little peek of what I’ve been working on… (so lucky that “work” means to get to stare at this adorable little face!) [fun fact:: these photos were shot in the exact spot this little one’s mama and daddy were engaged. cute, right!?]
OH MY GOODNESS…. this girl. and those eyes.
I spent an evening with this amazing little miss and her amazing parents, and I can’t get over how incredibly cute she is! It’s not news around here that I’m in love with her and her parents, but seriously? I love her!
I mean really…. these four are too much. I can’t get over the sweetness!
[see? you’re mush right now, aren’t you… told you so. :) ]
when life gives you lemons… when your bubble-maker quites working… oh well, at least he’s cute. :)
A couple of weeks ago, we had a benefit walk/auction for baby Hunter and his parents. Here’s how the flyer for the auction read: “Hunter was born November 22, 2010 with a disorder which is still unknown. He has craniofacial anomalies of the skull and face bones. In short, Hunter has a short bottom jaw, […]
This little guy stole my heart a year ago when he was just a newbie. You’ve seen him around here a few times, like here, here, and here. I’ve shared this story before, but I fell in love with all of his cuteness in a childcare center in Delaware. Then, one day, he arrived in a […]
Remember this beautiful mommy-to-be? Well, only days after I took those photos, she delivered a beautiful little baby girl. And I seriously mean beautiful. Meet Lucy Ann.
it comes in a 6-9 lb form of a BABY. and as much as Shane and I don’t want that experience any time soon, I can’t help but drool over how SWEET this little one is. holy cow. so sweet. just a little something to get you through “hump-day.” and there will be so many […]
My heart, my thoughts, my prayers – everything I am able to offer from my little spot on the map in KY – are all with the people of Joplin and the rest of the Midwest. There’s no reason I need to point this out, but this storm season has been insane. And, with some pretty […]
really, how can you get ENOUGH of this baby!?
there’s nothing better than a daddy with his daughter
…she wasn’t quite as interested in a picture with the Easter Basket…
there was always an extra little hand around to help… playing dress-up wore out this sweet little girl remember those little, helpful hands?….
