  • “Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realize they were the big things.”

    I am a dedicated photographer with a mothering spirit who wants to capture your loved ones the same way I want mine remembered. I strive to find beauty in little details and to discover the uniqueness of those special to you.

    My goal is to stop time, to capture today for tomorrow. I want you to feel like you could lift your child out of the photo, hear their laughter, remember being there snuggling them. I love eyes and eyelashes, I love chubby babies, I love siblings giggling, I love the tender love of a mother and the joy of a father tossing his child in the air. These are the things I am passionate about capturing.

    Thank you for your interest in my work. I look forward to working with you.

Family love | Kansas City Family Photographer

I have been thinking about kids and photos lately. Especially as I am digging out of the hole of photos of my own 3 from the past year (gulp…years!) I am really enjoying going through these little gems (many that I forgot that I had taken) and loving the perfection of even the imperfect ones. I have come to realize that I love being an observer, of letting my kids be themselves, to play, be quirky, to be thoughtful and for me to capture those true magic moments of them being them.

I approached this family session in the same way. I told Mom ahead of time that I wanted to see them playing (and to tell dad the same.) I wanted just to observe them, to capture their love and spirit, and their kids being themselves. Mom wanted the same and I think together we achieved it.

The first pictures always start this way…everyone lined up, smiling as they have been told…

Then we move on to some fun…I think here I was talking about how his friend tried to chop my arm off with his light saber.

Some snuggled up time just enjoying each other…

For some reason, I really love this one…

If you are a Kansas Citian, you probably know this tree in Loose Park. The awesome tree climbing tree. It is special to this family as a place that dates were held at years ago, engagement photos and now family play time…

I love a dancing, spinning girl…

A rare photo of the two of them together…the thing you can’t see is that their legs are wrapped in children…

So, this is the story that I felt priveledged to capture. Of love, laughter, playfulness…a glimpse into their lives this one evening. Not just what everyone looked like but rather what it felt like to be a part of their loving family.
