My computer literally isn’t uploading fast enough for this session I had this evening. It’s moving soooooo slow but honestly I couldn’t even wait to edit a few so I could get one on here. I knew the second these two got out of the car it was going to be an awesome shoot. I mean look how stylishly coordinated they are! And they kept me laughing the whole time. Julius kept trying to get out of being in this shoot but I had to remind him to freaking pull it together lol! I’m not afraid to check my clients. YOU WILL STAND THERE AND YOU WILL LIKE IT! 😂😂😂 And, well he did. I have the pictures to prove it. I had so much fun and hopefully 🤞🏻 I’ll get to see these two again soon! 😍
Does this photo make me an influencer yet?! Would you believe me if I told you my 8 year old took this picture? Cause he did. He’s been really interested in photography lately even though the old camera I gave him, he shattered on the kitchen floor. His stepmom, @kmphotoskc
is also a photographer, who’s been a major influence in my own photography journey. I could only imagine how bomb my photography skills would be if I started at 8 years old. Get your 10,000 hours in early there little one! 📸
A different kind of couple shoot...a couple of badass boss babes! These two just ooze confidence. And style. And charisma. And their message is so inspiring! It’s all about being authentic to yourself. But honestly, as I sit here editing their photoshoot, I’m trying to figure out how to live vicariously through their lives 🤔
p.s. We did the second half of our shoot at the Intercontinental and what the what?! How have I never been there? Why am I not living there? Seriously, one of the most gorgeous spaces in KC.
Anybody else in full holiday mode? My new Christmas tree doesn’t get here until tomorrow and I’m so impatiently waiting on it. This years color palette: black, white, creme, gold, with pops of red. What’s everyone else’s??
I decided to take just a bit of a hiatus from social media during our trip to Ohio. And it was much needed! I always have such a great time visiting my sister and my nieces and nephew. And now I can’t wait for them to get here for Christmas. We ended up getting back at 8:00 this morning after driving all night. My mom woke me up last night and said we needed to leave right away because of the blizzard coming straight for Kansas City. So we booked it out of there and now it’s kinda nice to be home by the fire with a warm cup of coffee. There’s a lot of housework and editing that I need to catch up on as well. And maybe a few 💤
Do y’all know how hard it was to get this picture?! This is why you rarely see pictures of my children...as soon as I bring out a camera, they disperse into the wild blue yonder, never to be seen again. Well only 3 more sleeps until it’s socially acceptable to start celebrating the Christmas season. We must give the thunder chickens 🦃 their glory. Come, gather around the dry bird carcass- and don’t let a hint of red or green enter my retinas until BLACK FRIDAY 🥴😂🥳🤡
Is posting on a Sunday night, Instagram suicide? Probably. Do I care? Probably not. My day started out pretty rough. Nothing was going right and I was stressed to the max about getting everything done in time to leave for Ohio on Wednesday. But I took a deep breath and told myself that everything was going to work out how it was supposed to. Then everything started to fall into place and by this evening I’m way more chill than this morning. After finally meeting and photographing Mika @layersnlipstick
and her man this evening, I couldn’t wait to get home and start these edits. I may not have started the day off in the right foot but I definitely ended it on one!
I should be getting in the shower getting ready for my busy day, but here I am on Instagram and my computer, while also watching documentaries about serial killers on YouTube. I get so distracted looking at all the couples and faces I have in my arsenal. Ok time to focus....maybe....
I love this picture of me and my boys. Since starting to really get busy with my photography, sometimes the mom guilt is overwhelming. I don’t have my Isaac everyday so having shoots on the days I do have him makes it hard and it’s hard on him as well. And Jacob would prefer to spend every waking moment with me and that’s not always possible when I have to work. I’m trying to be better about separating from him and trying to get him to be more independent. It’s definitely a trade off when working when you have young kids but it’s all for the greater good. It just means life is a little bit crazier now and it is a little easier knowing you’re leaving the kids for a bit to do something you love.
In love with my new logo created by @adriannnexo
! She captured exactly what I wanted and was such a pleasure to work with. And I also shout out to how AMAZING her page is 😍🙌🏻
Heyyyy y’all, it’s me 🙋🏻♀️. The girl behind the camera. If you’re somewhat new here I thought it was time to introduce myself again and also share a beautiful capture by my new friends Maddy and Corey. If you haven’t noticed, lately I’ve been transitioning my style and niche into couples and nature and outdoors and adventure and love. Ok you get the idea, but I’m really loving where I’m headed. I know my work is about to slow down a bit for the winter season so I’m going to take the time to make some adjustments to my business, workflow, website, logo etc. Hope y’all are enjoying this ride with me ☺️

We came. We froze to death. Kansas City is officially down 3 photographers.
But in all seriousness, I finally met Maddy and Corey from @jeffersonmayphotography
after months and months of corresponding here on Instagram, and they were so great! They are THE CUTEST photog team and I’m still trying to figure out why they never show their faces on here. Like what?! Look at these beauties!
I’m so excited about my new photographer friends and I’m so excited for them and where they are headed. If you get a chance- check them out!!
This pretty mama. Where do I begin? I went to school with Heather and she’s always been a friend ever since. So when she wrote me earlier this year to say that she was pregnant and wanted me to take her maternity pictures, I was SO excited and of course I said YES! One because I know her and she’s going to be the BEST mom, and two because their pregnancy journey has been an emotional one to say the least. They had struggled with fertility issues and had tried for a long time to have a baby. So when IVF became their last option, they went for it. And it worked. I’m so over the moon for the both of them and so excited for this next chapter they are about to begin. Heather, I love you and I can’t wait to meet your little nugget!
I have proof that this here fella can rock a gigipip hat as good as any. Photographic evidence will be found in mah stories.
If you’ve never experienced Kansas in the fall, you’re missing out.
Does it really matter how long you’ve been together if your love translates like this on camera!? This family lives in my neighborhood and we decided to do a shoot in my magic field. (I don’t know whose it is, but I’m claiming it y’all) But to be honest, I stalk @kaileyabozarth
Instagram religiously because she has the cutest family and her house is SERIOUS goals. Ok her life is serious goals lol! These two were high school sweethearts and their love seemed just as much alive as I’m sure it was in the beginning. *Le sigh
