I’m so very thankful for all the friends who came out for photos this past year.  I appreciate you, your patience, your children, and your beautiful smiles.  It has been a joy to spend time with you in person and to see your images come across my camera and computer.  I love capturing family memories in this amazing city that we live in.

Much love,

Six weeks old and this baby boy has completely charmed everyone he meets. I cannot stop staring at his smiles!!
I’m so thankful I was able to snuggle him during our lifestyle studio session. Cool fact of the day – I’ve known his momma for years and I had NO idea she could sing. But oh she can! And those smiles shown here are all in response to her singing and talking to him. This studio photosession was pure joy for me. Check out his smile!

Feel free to leave him some comment love if his smile and fist bump brightened your day. Let’s make it a great day friends.

We are homeschoolers, and even though we generally “do school” year round, we still like to document “back to school” around the end of summer. This library is one of our favorite places to spend time together and thus, it was the perfect location to shoot this session at.
Can you tell we enjoyed it?

Ealier this year we moved, and though it was a local move, my children were very sad to leave their home. Thus began the Good-bye House Project. Most of these images were collected on the morning of our moving day, not focused on the move so much as our family in our space. We packed copious amounts of joy, love and laughter in that home and would love to share some of that with you.

This session was truly a treat for me, definitely a bit different from what I normally photograph. Even just typing out this blog post on my pink and silvery blog just makes me laugh. But come, have a look and listen. Let me introduce you to Crossfit Olathe, it’s owners, coaches, and members. I have been training at CrossFit Olathe since May and I highly recommend it.

And here is a little view of what you might witness on any given day at this amazing CrossFit facility. Many of these images were taken during the Lift Up Moore fundraising campaign hosted at Crossfit Olathe. There was a great deal of sweat left behind in honor of those in need. The members at this box have giving hearts… and strong bodies.

This particular day’s workout consisted of cleans and burpees… a lot of cleans and burpees.

I love the light in my little studio!  It makes my heart sing when I walk into the room in the mornings.
Add a wide angle lens and my youngest sweetheart and that is a recipe for happiness.
