Summer in Kansas and the Midwest means a lot of thunderstorms and the evening of this family session was no exception! We contemplated how the session would go but decided to move quick and get as many photos as we could before the rain hit, and I am so glad we did because I just love how they turned out! I love the dark clouds you can see rolling in behind us, you can almost hear the thunder..(we sure did!) It literally started to downpour as soon as we were done shooting. This family is seriously the sweetest ever and I am so happy I was able to create these memories for them while they had a break from the TOUR life!!(Congrats on your amazing 2nd place finish at last weeks Greenbrier Classic btw 😉  It was hard to just pick a few to share.. Enjoy! 🙂

It is really hard for me to choose a favorite age that I like to photograph, they all have their perks! Each age comes with so many different expressions and personality traits, too. Two year olds are pretty high up there on my list of favorites, though! They still have somewhat of that “baby” look to them, but they are starting to grow into a little child.. they are just too cute! Shaylee was so much fun to photograph! I don’t think she really stopped laughing and smiling the whole time, which made for a stress free session (for me and Mom, ha!) Going through frame by frame, every facial expression is different, and I just love that about her and other toddlers! They are just so much fun and documenting their little personalities with photos is so important! It was too hard to just pick a few for this blog post so I decided to post almost all of them! Enjoy!

My first real session since moving to Kansas! Wahoo! To say I was excited is an understatement, this scenery is quite the change from the Arizona desert.. it is a photographer’s dream! This family has been our go to people every time we came to visit in Kansas City and now we live just down the street from them.. it is awesome! It is so fun to be able to watch families grow and to create these memories for friends. Emily seriously looks ahhh-mazing…Really, how do you look that good when you are only weeks away from delivering your third baby?! We ordered the maternity gown especially for her maternity session from the very talented Sew Trendy Accessories and it could not have looked any better! I am impatiently awaiting the arrival of baby girl and cannot wait to photograph her! Here are a handful of my favorites from their maternity session <3

We are finally starting to get settled into our new home in Lenexa, Kansas (just outside Kansas City, Kansas) and I could not wait to get my girls in front of my camera! I am in photographer dream location heaven here with the lush greenery and fields. What’s even better is the fact that I literally just have to walk across the street from our home to find a location for shooting a session. I took my girls out last night to test out the spot and I am in love! Here are a few shots from our quick session…

Penelope came to my studio for her newborn mini session and totally rocked her session without making a single peep! I loved the total neutral tones to her session, it really gives it that classic, timeless look that I’m after for every session. Here are just a few of my favorites from her newborn session!
