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

Adventure Day | Gieringer’s Orchard | Kansas City Family Photography

Well, hello there, strangers! Sorry it's been so long. We've been busy doing summer. Baseball games, baseball practice, cheerleading practice, camps, the lake, exploring, swimming. All of it. I really haven't had a moment to sit down and share it all in awhile, but here I am! We went blueberry picking on Friday morning and… Continue reading Adventure Day | Gieringer’s Orchard | Kansas City Family Photography

Family adventures have become a weekly staple for us. We're exploring all the magical parts of our city. I love documenting these moments. To me, this is the real.

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

At Home: Mr. B Turns One

There are so many things that I love about At Home sessions. The real life, the important things, the details of your unique story.  For those of you with more logical and practical approaches to life, another one of the amazing things about an At Home session is it doesn't matter what the weather is… Continue reading At Home: Mr. B Turns One


10 on 10 April 2018 {Adventure Day: The Art of the Brick}

Just before Easter, the kiddos had a day off of school.  We had been wanting to take them down to Union Station to check out the Art of the Brick exhibit for awhile, and this seemed like the perfect opportunity.  It is a traveling exhibit by artist Nathan Sawaya that has been all over the… Continue reading 10 on 10 April 2018 {Adventure Day: The Art of the Brick}

Baby’s First Story Session: Miss M

One of the biggest compliments I can receive is to have my clients come back to me.  To ask me again to document special moments in their lives. This is one of those families and I feel very blessed. It was already special because I was able to re-connect with an old college friend and… Continue reading Baby’s First Story Session: Miss M


10 on 10: March 2018

This week has been a whirlwind.  Crazy weather, the anticipation of vacation and my BABY turning THREE! I'm just hoping that when I return from vacation the weather will have finally decided that it's spring and that my baby will magically be a baby again. I can hope, right?! At this point, I'm not sure… Continue reading 10 on 10: March 2018
