Our Spring Tree Tradition

Well, hi there strangers! It's been quite awhile since I've written. I'm sorry about that and I promise to be better about it. I've mentioned many times that we live across the street from a 1600 acre park. It's amazing. We've created so many memories there already in our 3.5 years in this house and … Continue reading Our Spring Tree Tradition

In Case I Die Tomorrow

I know. That's a very morbid title, but maybe it was enough to capture your attention. Tomorrow I'm having surgery. A hysterectomy. I'll spare you all the details and reasons why, but it's time. Our family is 100% complete and it's time I focus on myself for a minute. I've been having a lot of … Continue reading In Case I Die Tomorrow

Here’s to Being Vulnerable

It's the start of a new year. We're supposed to be making proclamations of change and committing ourselves to doing life differently; to being "better" at life.  We all do it. We all start the year with big ideas and a laundry list of ways we could have done things better in the previous year.  … Continue reading Here’s to Being Vulnerable

2018 Client Session Favorites

2018 has been a year of change for my business. A step backwards in volume, but a giant step forward in passion. I started this year choosing to take on less; to be more selective. I was in a place of lost why.  I was busy saying "yes" to everything and lost myself in the … Continue reading 2018 Client Session Favorites

At Home | Linski Family | Kansas City Family Photography

I first met the Linski family last summer so I was very excited when they reached out to me to document their family again. I was even more stoked when mom said she wanted a casual session at home. MY FAVORITE! It's at home where you're the most you. Where you can do the things … Continue reading At Home | Linski Family | Kansas City Family Photography

A Decade Down

On September 27th, my hubby and I celebrated 10 years of marriage. There's a part of me that giggles at that number. 10. In reality we met and fell in love almost 17 years ago. We were young collage students. Goodness, he was still a teenager! So, you can see why saying 10 just doesn't … Continue reading A Decade Down

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

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
