Worth the Wait - Kansas City Newborn Portraits

This little girl arrived a bit later than expected - and planned for. But I can see by how much she's loved that everyone agrees that she is worth the wait.

I think she is the youngest baby I've photographed - if you go by the time of day she was born, she wasn't quite 4 days old. She slept soundly through most of it, bless her little heart - that always makes my job much easier.

Congratulations Courtney and Tim - your daughter is a sweetie. Enjoy your preview.

Little Miss Sunshine - Kansas City Portrait Photographer

This little girl's face is like sunshine to me - when she smiles her face lights up any room. I have photographed her so many times and each time is just a special experience. Happy 6th birthday, sweet pea!

Fun Family Portrait Session - Kansas City Portrait Photographer

Ellen and her extended family came for a portrait session last week, and since it was pouring rain outside, we decided to just keep shooting - the result are some pretty fun studio portraits. Of course, the grandkids had seen lots of leaping images on my web site and wanted some of themselves jumping, too! Well, why not! Anyway, whenever I do a session like this it reminds me that I need to get my whole family together for a portrait session together. Portraits like this will be a part of this family for decades, and that makes me fee really good - I love my job!

Pretty Baby - Kansas City Children's Photographer

We thought Loose Park would make a beautiful setting for this sweetie's 9-month session. I get to photograph her frequently and it was really fun for me and her mom and dad to leave the studio for once and head outdoors. Doesn't she have the most amazing eyes?

Thanks, Meggan and Ryan. You don't know how much I appreciate you!

Happy Boys - Kansas City Newborn Photographer

Look at the little guys! All smiles for their portrait session with me. Aren't they cute?

It was a neat experience photographing Christy's new baby boy - I think he's the biggest newborn I've had the opportunity to photograph - 10.5 pounds! Which puts a whole new spin on the "laying on Daddy's outstretched arms" pose doesn't it?

Thank you for choosing me, Christy. I'm very happy you saw that birth announcement on your sorority sister's refrigerator. Enjoy the previews - your gallery will be ready soon!

The Twins Turn One - Kansas City Baby Photographer

Look who just had a birthday! You've seen these little men on my blog a few times - they are the only newborn twins I've photographed in my two years in business. Their mom, Julie, found me after attempts to schedule a maternity session with someone else proved difficult, and I'm so happy she did. It's been great to see these baby boys grow (and yes, they made a terrible mess with the cake!)

Julie - here's your preview - I know you've been patiently waiting.

A Blessing for Jenn and Mike - Kansas City Newborn Portraits

This little lass has been a bit of a trouble maker for her parents already (particularly her mommy!), but they of course consider her nothing but a blessing. I have photographed Jenn and her family a few times now - and you all know how I feel about repeat clients; plus Jenn enjoys photography as a hobby and we always have a lot to talk about. Love that!

Jenn, I hope you feel better soon, and congratulations to you and Mike. It was a pleasure.
