I was so excited when Gisela called and asked me to photograph Elle’s first birthday party. It was so much fun to document the celebration of this sweet little one’s first birthday with their family and friends. I just adore this family, they are the sweetest.

  • Megan - Such a pretty first birthday party!! Looks like they had fun :)ReplyCancel

I have been spending a little time scouring antique stores for vintage props and fabrics to use in sets. Sadly, many of my favorite stores in Grain Valley and Oak Grove have closed. Let me know if you find a good one, so I can add it to my list.

Meet sweet, little, anxiously awaited Olivia! She has such tiny and delicate features. Tiny, perfect, and adorable in every single way.

2014 – A Year in Review

So many adorable and sweet children and babies in 2014. A brand new, gorgeous studio space. So many good things. I love to look back at my work at the end of the year. How lucky I am to have so many wonderful new and repeat clients.  Many are bringing their second and third babies to me. How blessed I am to be able to do something I truly love as a field of work. I can’t express my appreciation enough for you all.

Eighty-something portrait sessions and a few weddings in 2014, I just grabbed a few hear and there. My personal favorites are almost never a huge smile, but a close-up and thoughtful expression. The quirkiest shot of a child or toddler is most always my favorite. I intended to show one of each child and families, but it quickly became clear that there would be a 30 minute video, which is a nobody would sit and watch. Happy New Year a bit late!
