Another Fun Family Session in the Studio - Kansas City Family Portraits

I really enjoyed photographing this family. When they first arrived they said dad wasn't really happy about having his portraits taken - well, if that's true, I can't imagine what he'd be like if he were actually looking forward to it! What a fun guy, fun mom, and great kids. I left for home after the session just loving my job, and happy about this service I'm able to provide people. Thank you, Julie, for choosing me to photograph your family. Gallery coming soon!

Traditional Family Portaits - Kansas City Portrait Studio

I truly enjoy family portrait sessions in the studio. So many people prefer outdoor portraits, but there's something so classic about a traditional, formal family portrait in the studio. Renee - thank you for choosing Center Stage - full gallery coming soon.

You've seen her on my blog and web site many times - with a face like sunshine and a personality to match, it's always a fun to photograph this sweetie. Happy 7th birthday!

Long Overdue - Kansas City Newborn Portraits

This baby girl was all of 17 days late! Good for Anne for hanging in there all that time.
 Ten days old when I photographed her, this baby made my job easy! I believe my fastest newborn session to date - just over and hour. Isn't she just beautiful? Such great skin, too - oh, I love this baby!

Congratulations to Brady and Anne on the birth of your third daughter - I am so happy you chose me to photograph this special time in your lives.

Another Fun Family Session - Kansas City Photographer

Brenda thought it was time for new portraits, and after some convincing, her husband, Dave, agreed to take part as well! They also brought their two darling dogs, and we conducted the session both in my studio and in a pretty little park nearby. Add to that an assist from my sister, and it was a very enjoyable session.

Thank you, Brenda, for seeing the value of professional portraits, and for choosing Center Stage!

By the way - you may notice a new settee! You all know I'm obsessed with them. I'm still on the lookout for a small sofa - doesn't have to be old-fashioned ... but I need a small, dark sofa in good condition for family portraits in the studio. If you spot one out and about, let me know!

Special Family Portrait Session - Kansas City Photographer

All of my portrait sessions are special to me, but sometimes I am asked to photograph a family during a particularly emotional time in their lives and this session was one of them.  Last Wednesday I photographed Chuck and Katie and their daughter, Saturday the little girl danced in her yearly dance recital and that evening, Chuck left for a year+ in Afghanistan. What an honor for me! Wishing Chuck safety during his tour, and hoping the time goes quickly for Katie and their daughter.

Thank you so much, Katie. Enjoy the preview.
