Three Girls for Anne - Kansas City Maternity Photographer

Anne, expecting her third daughter, was recently living in England and planning to return to her favorite photographer when she returned to the U.S. But when she got back, she learned the studio was no longer in business. So she found me! And I'm happy she did. She's fun to work with and her daughters are adorable!

Congratulations on your pregnancy, Anne - gallery coming soon! (and yes, it will be ready for Kellie to see this weekend!)

6-month-old beauty - Kansas City Baby Photographer

I have photographed this baby's mother so many times - she is a professional dancer and teacher, and so it was a special treat to get to do this little girl's six-month portraits - she's as beautiful as her mommy! Isn't she just the sweetest thing?

Thanks, Allison and Aaron - she's a beauty!

Finally - a little one! - Kansas City Newborn Photography

In the last year, almost all of the newborns I have photographed have been in the 8.5-11 pound range. And while I truly love those chunky monkeys, for variety's sake it was nice to have this little missy in my studio this week. Seven pounds is actually quite "medium" for a newborn, but to me, she seemed so tiny!

Her parents are excellent to work with - I'm so sad they will be moving soon since dad Ed is graduating in May from an Army graduate school at Fort Leavenworth.

Christi and Ed - thank you so much for choosing me to photograph your sweet baby girl!

Big Girl! - Kansas City Newborn Portraits

This baby girl took her sweet time making her appearance into the world arriving two weeks after her due date and tipping the scales at nine and a half pounds!  She is such a beautiful little thing, and has the proudest parents - I love working with them!

Here's a few to look at while you await your gallery.

Karen - Liberty High School Senior Portraits

I had a great time photographing Karen for her senior portraits - she's such a great girl- she dances competitively for Elite Dance Co., she plays violin in the Liberty High School orchestra, and will be traveling to China soon to perform, and she recently danced in a Hanson video (I didn't get all the details but it sounded fun!).

Choosing images for my blog was so hard - but here's a few to enjoy while you wait for your gallery, Karen!

Class of 2010- it's not too late to schedule a senior portrait session - contact me soon!

Girl-About-Town - Kansas City Children's Photography

As you know from following my blog, I'm very at home doing sessions in my studio in Shawnee; and I also do many sessions outdoors. But what I haven't done much of at all is indoor sessions. So when Meggan contacted me for her daughter's 18-month portraits and suggested indoor portraits I was eager for the challenge.

This little girl is quite the girl-about-town - we did her 1-year portraits in the West Bottoms, and so for this session we went to Union Station - where the family frequently goes for weekend adventures. I've photographed this sweet thing since she was just a few days old and it's special for me to get to see her grow up through my portraits.

Thank you, Meggan and Ryan for once again choosing Center Stage!

The last little ballerinas - Kansas City Portrait Photography

Here's a few images from my final ballerina sessions for this time around. My next one is scheduled for late September/early October. Of course, private sessions are available year-round.

Thanks for everyone who signed their children up for this event - what a bunch of cuties!
