the McKinneys | Family

We finished out baby sister’s one year of sessions out at the homestead with a morning session just after sunrise. It was a little chilly that morning back in March so after family photos, we finished up in the studio. Big sister was hamming it up, she’s just the best. So fun to see their different personalities develop, and it was a fun year watching little sis grow!

Walker Brothers | Kids

The last time I photographed this family, there were less brothers, and the ones who were there were a lot shorter! So fun to see them again and to take a few senior photos for the biggest brother, out here at the homestead. So crazy, we used the wheat field next to my house and as you can see in these first photos, it was just beginning to grow. They just finished harvest in July, which makes me realize just how behind on blogging I am! Enjoy these crazy brothers!

The Gurss Family

I met Holly and Bill over a year ago when I photographed their brand new premie baby girl, Aspen for her newborn session. Back in March, we got Holly’s whole family together for a big family session! It was a little chilly, but we had a lot of fun getting to know each other and snuggling up for photos! I have since had another session with Aspen + her parents that was HOT. So we’ve done both sides, haha.

Daxton | Newborn

We fell in love with Daxton! He was just so chill and easygoing, he even kept posing his hands just perfect for me. We started the session awake after his feeding, with family photos. Big bro wasn’t into being forced into photos, so attempts 1-8 failed, but we finally got our one shot we needed! Dad left with big siblings and we finished up with a sleepy Daxton. It was so interesting to hear the story of the journey his momma had in her pregnancies. Both heartbreaking and redeeming. Loved meeting this family!

the Clicks | Belly

Hi friends! It’s been awhile. I’m excited to share this maternity session with you today…I love this family! Their baby girl has since been born and we have done newborn photos, which I’ll share at a later date. But I started with Zach and Kirsten back when they were pregnant with their first baby boy, and have documented them every step of the way. It was so exciting to hear that they were having a girl after two boys and Kirsten couldn’t have been glowing more for her belly photos. We had such a fun evening and captured lots of fun candid moments for them during their last session as a family of four!

Quentin | Newborn

This sweet little buddy arrived at his session completely asleep, and we were able to get our beanbag poses done pretty fast! We quickly found out that he was NOT a fan of his elbows being out away from his body, he needed them tucked in tight. We got through most of our poses pretty easily, but when we tried to put him on his belly, he decided he was done and needed a meal. Momma fed him for awhile, then he got hiccups and it was all over. We finished up with some awake poses in a sweet little onesie that mom brought. He was definitely a little rockstar! I loved meeting this family, and hearing their journey to their rainbow baby! <3

Homes by Keely | Headshots

Back in March, I got to meet and photograph the awesome team behind Homes by Keely! My husband has photographed and videoed several houses that Keely has sold, so I’d heard about her and it was fun to finally meet her. We started out at a GORGEOUS model home, and then finished our time downtown at some super bright and fun Wichita murals. Love the vibe we got with these!

the Mirakians | Kids

In February, we had our semi-annual photo session with the Mirakian family! I have lost count of how many years it’s been that I’ve been photographing these boys in my studio, but we plan to continue the tradition til they’re 18! Always a chaotic and fun time with all the outfit changes and convincing the boys to gimme the REAL smiles! 🙂
