Aug 10-on-10 | Nelson-Atkins Museum | Kansas City Family Photography

It's pushing into the middle of August. Summer is fading. SCHOOL STARS TODAY! What?! I had so many big ideas. So many plans. All these wonderful adventures and fun we'd have this summer. Yep, that didn't happen. It never does. We mostly just survived with some fun mixed in. There were a few big things … Continue reading Aug 10-on-10 | Nelson-Atkins Museum | Kansas City Family Photography

The Hour-by-Hour Photography Project

Over the last few years I've completed a 365 project; one photo everyday for a whole year.  While I've loved all the little everyday moments I was able to capture during those projects, this year I wanted to try something a little different. Something that would still allow me to capture our story, but also … Continue reading The Hour-by-Hour Photography Project

10 Projects to Pull You Out of the Photography Rut

As an artist, there’s nothing more frustrating then a creative block. A total lack of inspiration and motivation to create. You keep shooting, but nothing you’re capturing moves you. Or maybe you don’t even feel like picking up your camera. We’ve all been there. The photography rut. Maybe it’s the weather. Maybe it’s life getting … Continue reading 10 Projects to Pull You Out of the Photography Rut

I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

Does this closing mean we all officially have to grow up now? I'm a Toys 'R Us kid. I always will be. It feels like a little part of my childhood is dying. Back in March, when they first announced Toys 'R Us was closing, I took tiny many over for a visit. I thought maybe … Continue reading I Don’t Wanna Grow Up

At Home: Miss L is 6 Months

I always like to start these milestone session blogs with a little flash back to the newborn session. Gives you a little reminder of how much these kiddos have grown in such a short time. AND since this was one of my favorite newborn sessions ever, I don't mind sharing again. So, there she is. … Continue reading At Home: Miss L is 6 Months

Summer Break Bucket List

It's May. That means school will be out sooner than I'm probably ready for. I'm certainly ready for sleeping in past 6AM, but I'm not sure about the rest of it. Let's face it. Summer break sounds great in theory, but the reality is it is exhausting, frustrating, annoying, overwhelming, and exhausting. Did I mention … Continue reading Summer Break Bucket List

Huppy Hours: Catch Up

When I started this project I was skeptical that I could keep it going. It's easy to burn out on personal projects when you've got life to deal with. I didn't realize, though, how much it would energize and inspire me. I look forward to these days each week. {Week 10} I've changed the "rules" … Continue reading Huppy Hours: Catch Up
