Donahou Maternity

I was so excited to get together with an old friend at the Independence square to shoot an engagement session. I think we talked more than worked but I did manage to squeeze a few photos in there. ;) Rachel and Eddie, you are going to be fabulous parents. I cannot wait to meet your new little bundle!

Senior Session Round 2

It has been a little while since I've been down to Loose Park. The rose bushes are still in bloom and look gorgeous! Kelli, thank you for making the trip down to Kansas City for your second round of senior portraits. Here is a little sneak preview....

Gibbons Family

I will admit that I am not a morning person. I prefer to stay up late at night and sleep until the sun is already high in the sky. But, I WILL get up early to photograph an adorable family. A little caffeine and I am ready to go!

Trenton, Senior 2013

I love variety and I love photographing high school seniors.  Each session is unique and focuses on personality, hobbies and individual characteristics.  These could be the last photos that are professionally taken until they decide to get married.  *sigh*  Maybe that is the real reason why I enjoy these sessions.  They make me feel important.  I get to create a permanent portrait, one that will likely hang in the parents' home for a very long time.  And what an exciting time...leaving the nest...striking out on your own...slowing changing from a teen to an adult...  Yes, I suppose I am a little sappy.  But, this session is yet another nephew that will be graduating high school.  Even though my children are still young, I am reminded that they too will be graduating and moving on way too soon...

Congratulations, Trenton on the impending graduation and good luck with everything you do.

Baby Luci

This has definitely been the year for newborns and I have enjoyed every minute of it. They are so tiny, squish-able and fun to pose. Welcome to the world baby Luci! I am so glad you came to visit me. :)
