Grant K | Kansas City newborn portrait session

May 11th, 2015

little Grant visited me at my studio last week for his newborn session. His sweet family have been longtime clients of mine and it’s been fun to watch their family grow! He was such a sweet, mild-mannered, quite little guy. Before we got underway with his own session, we got a couple of updated family […]

 

little Grant visited me at my studio last week for his newborn session. His sweet family have been longtime clients of mine and it’s been fun to watch their family grow! He was such a sweet, mild-mannered, quite little guy. Before we got underway with his own session, we got a couple of updated family photos outside of the studio. I’m so lucky to have such a beautiful outdoor space right outside my studio doors!

John + Ben | Married at the Intercontinental

May 6th, 2015

Seriously. Who WOULDN’T love these two? Ben and John are so, so sweet and fun – and their wedding day was elegant as I expected it would be, being in the Rooftop Bar at the Intercontinental in Kansas City – but also incredibly fun. Fun to watch, fun to document, fun to be a part […]

 

Seriously. Who WOULDN’T love these two? Ben and John are so, so sweet and fun – and their wedding day was elegant as I expected it would be, being in the Rooftop Bar at the Intercontinental in Kansas City – but also incredibly fun. Fun to watch, fun to document, fun to be a part of. Everyone there was having fun and you could tell that every single guest adored these two. For me, this wedding was less about artsy portraits and more about pure documentation and telling a story. Below is my version of their wedding story!

Ella W | senior session

May 5th, 2015

Ella’s session started a bit late in the evening due to her work schedule, so we did something a bit non-traditional and lit up some dusk/night shots for the last stretch of her session. I ended up being in love with those images! Just a reminder that if you don’t think you have enough time […]

 

Ella’s session started a bit late in the evening due to her work schedule, so we did something a bit non-traditional and lit up some dusk/night shots for the last stretch of her session. I ended up being in love with those images! Just a reminder that if you don’t think you have enough time for a weeknight session, whether it be for a senior session or an engagement session, you just may after all 😉 I’ve developed a bit of a reputation for night shots and off-camera lighting, so if you’d like shots like the few at the end, we can by all means schedule appropriately! And speaking of schedule, it’s not too early to get your 2016 seniors on the calendar. I’ll be releasing a BRAND new series of websites early next week with easy-to-find pricing and I’m super excited about my new look…so stay tuned!

Congratulations to Ella – I absolutely loved her smile and her laugh throughout this session…positively infectious!

Kelly + Jason | Riviera Maya sunrise beach portraits

April 27th, 2015

After Kelly and Jason’s fabulous Riviera Maya wedding, we planned a sunrise beach session before coming back to Kansas City. It was earrrrrly so we kept it fairly brief – but we got some amazing shots. Love so much that these two were willing to get up early and do this! Enjoy.

I’m so excited to share the highlights from Kelly and Jason’s destination wedding at the Ocean Maya Royale resort in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Kelly is a supremely talented portrait photographer so of course, I was super honored to be chosen to capture hers and Jason’s wedding day. They and the whole crew of guests were simply a blast to spend the week with and I cherish the memories and fun from that week! The ceremony and reception was held beachside and the weather was perfect; sunny and clear, warm without being blisteringly hot. I absolutely had so much to photograph it was ridiculous, and the blog post reflects that! Below is the slideshow, and the still photo highlights follow! Tomorrow you can look for a new blog post featuring their “day after” sunrise session!

Deanna J | impromptu night maternity session

The one thing I love about the photography community in Kansas City is that many of us full-timers are quite close and get together often. One such gathering occurred a few weeks ago; a group of ladies assembled to discuss lighting with off camera equipment and flashes at a photographer’s studio in the Crossroads, and this turned into an impromptu nighttime street shoot, featuring local photographer Deanna, who was actually due with her 3rd child just 5 days later! Here are the images I took that evening. A big congrats to Deanna on welcoming her son, Britton, into the world! This obviously is very different from the vast majority of maternity portrait sessions, but night photography is something I love and I adore how edgy these area. Enjoy.

This evening brings Tanesha’s sunny senior session to the blog. We had a great time exploring Parkville and I absolutely love this girl’s style! Her session really reminded me how much I enjoy photographing high school seniors.

On that note, I have room for 1 or 2 more seniors in teh next week to two weeks before we get too close to graduation. Interested? Drop me an email . If you have a senior for 2016, it’s not too early to plan! I typically start booking sessions over the summer and through the fall. Though I always have some spring sessions as well, I have to limit these so I have time to edit the galleries and get everyone taken care of in time to order prints and such for graduation…so it’s best to plan ahead. You can download my senior flyer here.

Here are Tanesha’s wonderful images!
