DIY Stenciled Tile Project

We are currently in the process of updating our late 90s builder grade house into a more modern and up-to-date home. When we bought this house 4 years ago I saw it's potential; lots of spaces, big kitchen, giant yard. It just needed some help to reach that potential.  We're finally tackling one of the… Continue reading DIY Stenciled Tile Project

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

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

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

October: 10-on-10 | Kansas City Family Photography

It's already October. It's my favorite month of the year. Fall is officially here.  I figure it's about time to do a "this was our summer" type of post. Am I too late for that? I think maybe this unrelenting rain we've had for the last 4+ days might have some people wishing for summer… Continue reading October: 10-on-10 | Kansas City Family Photography

It's not official, but I feel like fall is here. A tell tale sign that we've shifted to fall is that it's actually cooler in the shade.  Kansas summers are brutal with heat and humidity, the only salvation is air conditioning. So, even though we're still hitting 80 degrees, you can now get some relief… Continue reading Family Adventure | Cider Hill Family Orchard | Kansas City Family Photographer
