8. have I mentioned LOVE yet?

This is our third annual shoot with Taylor and Mallory. I know I say it alot, but I can’t believe how fast these little girls are growing up! It’s fun to go back and see how much they’ve changed. Here’s the blog post from last year, and the one from two years ago is here.
For this session, we met in Lawrence on the Kansas campus. It holds a lot of memories for mom & dad. They both went to school there, it’s where dad proposed to mom, plus it’s a fun place to shoot. And, when we heard they had KU cheerleading outfits for the girls…let’s just say, we smiled 🙂
We will tramp, tramp, tramp around the columns
With a cheer for old Mizzou!
oh, wait, wrong cheer 🙂
Rock, Chalk Jayhawk!
Wow. It’s hard to believe Audrey is almost four years old and we’ve been taking her pictures since she was three months old. And now her little sister Lily is 18 months! Time sure flies… We had a great time with these guys last week and here are some favorite photos from the session…
Love, top hats, laughter, canes, tears of joy, crazy dancing, a firetruck, oh, and eye patches (even with all that, I’m sure I’m leaving something out). Our wedding on International Talk Like a Pirate Day had it all. Most importantly, though, Kim & Marc got married. And…they had TONS of fun doing it…classy pirates, anyone?
The bridal party….RULED.
Today, I bring you a variety of cuties. We have dogs, cats, mice and even a sleeping ferret (the bunny didn’t make the cut). All these happy guys and gals are looking for a forever home. Enjoy, and as always, if you’re looking for a new furry companion, please head to Wayside Waifs.
Is there any better way to spend your life than with the one you love the most? I don’t think so, and neither do April & Joe. In fact, they have been together since 7th grade. Yep, you read that right, 7th grade (they even have Jenny & I beat by a couple of years). They were all smiles (HUGE smiles) on their wedding day, I can only imagine how happy they are going to be 5, 10, 20, 50 years down the road. Thanks for the reminder of how powerful love is, April & Joe, my love for Jenny is stronger because of both of you.
My mind is racing trying to figure out what was said to get both of these reactions at the same time 🙂
Some might say this is cheesy, or stupid, and to those of you that say that, I say…you’re wrong. It’s funny 🙂
April’s sisters sang their own version of the Garth Brooks classic “I Got Friends in Low Places”. Wait, Jenny says it’s a classic, I say, do Garth Brooks and classic ever go together? That being said, their song was sweet, touching, and amazing.
This is exactly what was said in the back seat of the van on the way home from pre-school today.
Max: “Daddy, when I get older, and Zoey gets older, I want to marry her.”
Ava: “Me too.”
Max: “No, Ava, I’m going to marry Zoey, you can marry Lia.”
Ava: “Yeah. I can marry Lia.”
And, here are a couple of shots of Max and Zoey taken yesterday morning. Aren’t they just so cute?
Sometimes love blossoms in unexpected places. For Kristin & Shawn, that place happened to be at H&R Bloch. So, what better place to shoot their session than H&R Bloch and the surrounding area 🙂
Kristin & Shawn have a wonderful relationship. In just the short time we spent together shooting their e-pics, I learned that they just love to have fun together, and that’s what life is all about, right? Their sense of humor (and they both have good ones) was on display all throughout the shoot, and that’s just the way I love it!
Ok, this one’s tied for my favorite. There is just something mysterious about this image, but you sure can see how much Kristin loves Shawn just by looking at that smile.
Laci & Ryan. Where do I begin? How about the beginning. During our consultation, we learned they met & fell in love while living in New York. We also learned that they had a bridal shower there the exact weekend we were shooting a wedding in the city. Coincidence? I think not.
During this session, we got a GREAT tour of the city, we hit up a few of their favorite spots and re-lived some of their greatest memories. Again, New York is straight up chaotic, but Jenny and I had so much fun hanging out in a place that means so much to them.
Our 2nd stop happened to be the stoop where they first met. Laci was sitting on the stoop outside where she lived, Ryan walked by with a bunch of guys on a bachelor party. First they planned to have a bachelor party in Vegas organized by Crazy Horse 3, but it was a last minute change of plans. The rest is history.
