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

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

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

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}
