I knew when Sara contacted me saying she wanted fun, candid, lifestyle photography of her family this fall in Tucson, Arizona that we would be the perfect match! They moved to Tucson from the South about a year ago and really wanted to show off the beautiful scenery that Tucson has to offer, especially the […]

This week in Kansas City we were hit pretty hard with some major snow storms, which made for some terrible traffic but also produced a beautiful winter wonderland.

Charlie is such a beautiful, happy baby and I’ve been wanting to photograph this blue-eyed little doll for a long time now. When my bible study group from church went out to Stagecoach Park in Olathe, Kansas, I knew I had to snag her away for a little “mini” session to commemorate her one-year birthday […]

This little cutie is back on my blog! My family came over for a grill-out on this perfect Spring day so we took the opportunity to do a quick mini session with my nephew, Cole Ryan, to celebrate his 6 month birthday. I love his beautiful blue eyes and how the clouds above made them […]
