Our favorite thing about photographing families is just watching the natural relationships and dynamics come out. It was so much fun to get to capture the Hastings Family over their Christmas break together. One of the families lives in Colorado and times with grandparents, aunts uncles and grandchildren together is rare and sweet. Such a joy to document these moments.
Talk about a power couple. Connor and Mitch both work in law enforcement and are passionate about what they do. They have big personalities and even bigger hearts, and their love for each other is deep and strong. I loved the earth tone colors they chose for their outdoor engagement session in Shawnee Mission Park. The tall wild grass and beautiful trees mixed together with the wind on that day doing amazing things to Connor’s hair all made for the perfect kind of engagement shoot. Cannot wait to photograph their wedding in Kansas City this fall.
Macie and I connected over Instagram a few days after she and Austin were engaged. Their story is so adorable and as soon as we sat down for coffee in person the three of us were laughing like old friends. I had so much fun documenting their love and their adorable chemistry during the engagement session in Wichita, KS. It’s so crystal-clear these two were made for each other. Can’t wait for their wedding this fall!
This in home session north of Seattle Washington was so sweet, authentic, heartfelt, and perfect.
I love in-home family sessions so much. Some mamas are hesitant to do them because they feel like their house isn’t pretty enough or perfect enough. I love how Laurel invited us into her space and chose to have her family captured where they feel most at home. Her home is beautiful but it wasn’t about that for her. It was about the sweet, real moments with her husband & baby. Beauty isn’t about perfection. It’s about honesty & love. Any home where love is found is beautiful.
The Factory was such a fun, unique photo location and getting to shoot there with this sweet family was a blast. The whole Toth family is so much fun and the kids were such genuine, joyful balls of energy. When I was on the phone with AnnJanette, planning this shoot, she gave me so many wonderful suggestions of things to do and see during my stay in the Nashville/Franklin area. Her heart of giving and sharing is a blessing and something I want to grow to be more like. Here are a few of my favorites from our shoot together.
