Senior Girl..."Sweet light"

Why is sunset the best time of day for photos? Because the light is phenomenal! Photographers call it "sweet light"...the hour just before the sun sets when everything radiantly glows. If I had my choice, I would only shoot at sunset and leave my camera sitting in its bag for the remainder of the day. The light is so magical and so inspiring, even the unimaginative become creative.

I had SO much fun with this senior. She is so easy-going and was willing to try anything. I can't wait for the second session in just a few weeks. Hopefully the light will be just as spectacular as it was last night.

A Boy and a Train

Happy birthday to this little guy who just turned 2! I have to admit that this is just about my favorite age. A lot of people use the phrase "terrible two's" but I simply love the innocence and curiosity. I also love that you can photograph at least a dozen different facial expressions in less than a minute. ;-) Thank you guys for driving all the way up here first thing in the morning. It was great seeing you again and I can't wait to see the rest of the family later this year!

Free Session Winner

I love facebook and I love taking photos so naturally I love sharing my photos on facebook. :) If you have not visited my facebook fanpage, please take a minute to do so and click the "like" button if you like my work. Occasionally, on a whim, I may have a give-away. For the month of August, to celebrate reaching 500 fans I gave away two sessions with a disc of images. My first session winner had her mini-session today and will recieve 15 digital images. Alexandra, as always it was a pleasure seeing you and your adorable children. Here are a few of my favorite images. Your disc will be ready for you sometime this week!

50th Wedding Anniversary

I had a quick little photo shoot this weekend with a lovely couple. They will be celebrating 50 years of marriage in just a couple of weeks! Congratulations and I look forward to photographing your special celebration. Despite Julie telling me that you two were trouble makers ;-), I think we had a lovely session and I truly enjoyed meeting you.

Mother and Daughters

I had the pleasure of meeting a wonderful mother and her two daughters. Despite the wind, we had a wonderful time walking around the beautiful Loose Park creating family portraits. Ladies, it was a pleasure meeting you and I hope that you enjoy your sneak preview. The rest of your images will be ready for viewing soon!

{M} Family

I've decided that the urban shoots are fantastic. With the shade from the buildings, the light is so easy to work with! I love all kinds of shoots and there are some fantastic parks around KC but there is nothing like an urban shoot when you live in the city... Thank you {M} family for allowing me to photograph your family. It was a pleasure meeting you and I hope to see you again. Your photos will be available for viewing soon...enjoy your sneak preview!
