Archive for April, 2012

I haven’t been keeping up with blogging everything I shoot, so it may seem like I only shoot weddings.  I always blog weddings because it takes me a bit longer to edit a whole wedding than it would to edit a family shoot or a senior shoot, so I have to show some goodies while they are waiting :)  But I have been shooting a lot of wonderful sessions including babies, toddlers, families, engaged couples, seniors and some fashion spreads and covers for HerLife Magazine.

I am blessed to meet so many amazing people on my job, but let me tell you that the sessions that melt my heart are the ones where I get to photograph children and their families.  I always say that the most amazing thing that I have ever done or ever will do is to be a mom.  And to be able to get photos for a mom and dad that show the love of their children is such an honor .  As well as the opportunity to meet their little sweeties and photograph them :)  I have so many favorites of this session I am swooning over :)

Here are some of my faves!

Remember when your kids put your whole face in their hands to give you a smooch?  Love that!!!

Super fave :)

This picture for sure melts my heart .  Poor thing fell down and scratched her hand and knee and kept saying  “my hand is broken” in the sweetest little sad voice ever.  And she must have the best cousins ever, because she kept asking for them when she was hurt, awwwwwwwww!!!!!!

And her little sis was just getting warmed up 😉

Ok, so I have just a few day left of April so I can officially say I am not behind on blogging this :)  However you should rush out and pick up the April issue if you haven’t seen it, because I think the May issue will be on the stands in no time!  Which will be awesome too and I will blog about that hopefully before the end of May :)  Spoil alert :  I got to shoot the first fashion shoot in Kansas City’s Sea Life!!!!

So many of you may know that I have been shooting some of the trendsetter section in HerLife Magazine since this time last year, but what you do not know is that now I am going to be alternating with my good friend Heather Morrow of Hocus Focus on shooting the covers as well!!!!  Working with HerLife has been a great experience and so fun meeting some of the super awesome women of Kansas City.   Of course we didn’t want to give up shooting the trendsetter section, so Heather and I will be alternating those as well!!!  How could we give up shooting all of the fab clothes from local boutiques, working with gorgeous models from Exposure, having beautiful make-up done by Melissa Evans and hair by Double Take Salon!

April’s trendsetter section was for Apricot Lane Boutique in Zona Rosa.  I had so much fun browsing through the boutique when I picked up the clothes for the shoot.  And if you are looking for a pair of Tom’s they have soooooooo many choices!!!!   And our model is Angela Lyman with Exposure Model & Talent, she was super fabulous and super fun :)  Our location for the shoot is Terrace on Grand, I love that place!!!!!!!!

Here are some of the magazine shots and a few more that I love!!!

and I always have fun creating my ad for HerLife!  One of my favorite things :)
