  • “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.

loved this session | kansas city family photographer

More of the little guy below and his equally cute big brother. Mom and Dad wanted a casual session out at the family farm and we had a fabulous night chasing and playing with the boys. It truly warmed my heart when the email from Mom a few days later told me what a great time they had and it was the best experience they had had being photographed. That’s is what I really love about I do- making people feel comfortable in front of the camera and capturing real moments. Some favorites from their session….

holiday minis, 2009 | kansas city family photography

Back by popular demand are the Fall Mini Sessions!  These limited availability sessions will take place two mornings in October and you have the option of a more urban or a more nature setting. 
Date:  Saturday, October 3rd
Location:  Ernie Miller Nature Center 
Session Times: 8:30, 9:15, 10:00, 10:45, 11:30

What is a mini session?
For those of you who haven’t experienced a mini session, a holiday mini session is a customized 20-30 minute session for up to 5 family members, resulting in 10-12 unique images in a private online gallery.  Mini sessions are for those who want a nice image for holiday cards, want to mark a milestone or are thinking of gifts for the upcoming holidays (and a few for yourself of course.) 
It is recommended that you think about what your highest priority is in the session.  Family picture of everyone together, just the kids together, individual shots?  Communicate that to me and that is what we will focus on first.  If time allows I will of course keep shooting!  Want it all?- I would recommend booking a full session if you are intent on getting a greater variety of shots that comes with a full session. 
The pictures are taken, where do we go from there?
Your online gallery will be hosted for you to view 1 week after your scheduled session.  This will be a private, password protected gallery that you can share with your family and friends.  You may choose to order a la carte prints or choose one of the special Holiday Mini Session Collections that are offered.
All orders must be placed within 1 week of your online gallery being posted.   A full collection of holiday card designs are available online to choose from.  I offer 5×7 high quality, press printed cards in your choice of lustre, linen or pearl paper.   Two revisions will be included during the designing of your holiday cards once your card has been chosen.
How do I book?
Email me with the date you are interested in and a time that works best for your family.  We will work together to get you on the schedule for your preferred time.  A $250 deposit must be paid to reserve your date and time.  This includes one set of 25 custom holiday cards and a $150 print credit to be used toward the purchase of prints a la carte or toward a holiday collection. 
I look forward to hearing from you!

back for another little playdate | kansas city children’s photographer

I had the pleasure of photographing these two little darling kiddos this weekend.  I had visited them last year when the little guy had just arrived and Miss L. had just celebrated her 2nd birthday.  We dodged the rain (woohoo!) and spent a fun morning playing both inside and out.  And, play we did!   Here are just a few of my many favorites…

Here is the little guy the last time I visited (he even gave me a little teeny smile then.)


Boy, how Mr. L has changed!  Love his dark chocolate eyes and that big smile!



This picture is from last year and honestly is one of my very favorite pictures ever…


And, here she is now just one year later!


I could have photographed her dancing and looking at herself in front of her mirror all day…


And, of course playing with her baby…


Now, the tricky part…one of the two of them together.  This is one of those photos that I look at and think that I need to be taking some pictures of my own kids.  I love this photo so much!


Thanks so much for inviting me back to photograph your two beautiful children.  I loved every minute of it and hope you enjoy the images as much as I do!
