Welcome To

the blog

This recent Cake Smash Session is worthy of it’s own blog post. Those of you that follow me on IG, saw a fun little video preview of this girl going after her cake, and as I bet you suspected – the pictures do NOT disappoint!

I’ll blog the rest of her one year session soon, but for now I just HAD to share this series!

4 Days Fresh – A Newborn Session

Newborn Photographer Faces You Love Photography

At just 4 days old, this sweet boy and his family joined me at my Kansas City studio. They are near and dear to my heart! I’ve been photographing their family since the early days of my business, when the oldest boy was just a few months old. It’s always an honor when a family chooses you once again as their newborn photographer, especially when there are so many newborn photographers in Kansas City!

Big brothers were both clearly smitten with the newest family member! I do believe these three will be the best of buddies – always playing together, sometimes wrestling (because, boys…), and equally obsessing over K-State sports!

Ah yes, K-State! The love of K-State runs deep in this family! This same hat was used at the newborn session of brother number 2, so it was only appropriate and right to use it again with number 3!

I’m awfully excited to get to work with this family 4 more times in the next year! They’ve locked in a Watch Me Grow plan, and I’ll once again get to watch one of their children grow from bitty baby into an active one year old. Throw in the fun of watching the other two boys grow along with him, and I’m one happy photographer!

I don’t often blog my NICU volunteer sessions (maybe I should?), but I wanted to share these from earlier this week! Every month or so, I head into the NICU at Saint Luke’s Hospital on the Plaza and photograph 8-10 babies and their families, completely free of charge. My lovely friend works there for the March of Dimes and coordinates the schedule for me (and several other photographers that also volunteer their time).

When holidays roll around, the NICU and March of Dimes like to do what they can to make the holiday special for these families that don’t yet have their baby (or babies) at home. My husband and I never experienced a holiday in the NICU (unless you count Labor Day, and I don’t), but the every day was hard enough, so I can imagine how much harder a holiday would be. You may have seen our work around Halloween, Christmas, or Valentine’s Day when the photos of cute babies dressed as super heroes, gifts, and wearing handmade hats went viral!

For Mother’s Day we made it all about Kangaroo Care, which is super important to preemies! Kangaroo Care is skin to skin contact, and in addition to being an amazing way for parent and baby to bond, it also eases discomfort and stress, reduces risk of infection, helps brain development, stabilizes heart rate, and so much more (plus amazing benefits for parents)!

In addition to the photo aspect this time, the moms were all gifted sweet little foot print keepsakes, the book The Magic of Motherhood donated by Harper Collins, and delicious cupcakes donated by Cupcake A La Mode.
