Sunshine, boats, smiles & love. What more can you ask for?

The Sykes Family

I drove to Columbia to meet up with the Sykes family. They have recently moved to Chicago (even farther away from me!) so we found a spot kind of in the middle that worked. We haven’t missed a session with them in quite some time, so it was great to keep the streak alive!

I met Kyle at my gym & am stoked to now call him a friend. I feel honored to have been able to capture these images of his lovely family.

This family holds a near & dear space in my heart. They’re wonderful and amazing & we’ve known them since we shot their wedding years ago. So much joy!

The Laskey Family

The Laskey family just moved to the KC area last year & needed some fun family portraits, so we met up & had a blast out at the Parkville Nature Sanctuary.

The Gilmore Family

Had fun with the Gilmore family on this lovely fall evening. One of my favorite things about documenting the Gilmores is that they let the kids pick out their outfits. It’s about being authentic, not matchy matchy, right?

The Beahm Family

Getting caught up on the family sessions I’ve shot over the last few months but never shared. Here’s the Beahm family who I’ve documented for the last 5 years. Love watching these kids grow up!

Married: Mary + Jake

Every wedding has 1 or 2 moments that you’ll carry with you for the rest of your life. Riding with the father of the bride & the groom 10 minutes before the ceremony was supposed to start so they could pick wildflowers & make a bouquet for the bride shows how much love these men had for her. Due to an unfortunate messup, the bride was going to walk down the aisle without her bouquet, but they wouldn’t let it happen. This love was evident throughout the day, from touches, speeches, looks. I can’t help but carry that kind of love home to my family.

Now, here are a few of my favorite shots from the day.

Loved catching up with this family. Especially since 10 years ago I shot there wedding around these exact same spots in downtown Paola. Life comes at you fast!

Nothing like a hot, summer lake engagement session.
