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!

Kansas City Newborn Portrait Session

I have a lots of blogging to catch up on from 2014.  I couldn’t wait to post the first newborn from 2015 I had the please of doing a newborn photography session with, though. Meet little Audrey!  She had so much hair and rosy, pink cheeks.  Just perfection.  Her mom brought a few things from her nursery.  Happy New Year!  Very excited about fun things in store with the studio this year!

In case you are in the process of securing your own newborn session, take a look at what to expect.

Sharing a newborn from December.  Meet Morgan.  He had tons of wonderful, dark hair.  I had to get a close-up of those sweet little lips.  I tend to get those at every newborn session.  They have this tiny peach fuzz on their little faces, the delicate lashes, itty-bitty toes and barely existent toenails. I am of the mind that those are things you want to remember forever. They are imprinted in your memory, how small and beautiful your child is a week after birth, but there really is nothing like image to look back on when they are nine years old and stand almost to your shoulders.  {sniffle}
