A baby announcement!

I know I haven’t been great at keeping the blog up to date with personal posts but we welcomed our third little boy, Ben, almost three weeks early on July 6th! Thankfully I was able to tie up all the loose ends with current clients right before he was born so the last couple of weeks have been spent settling in, creating a new routine as a family of five (!!!), and cuddling. Lots and lots of cuddling.

Happy due date, little one! I’m so glad you decided to join us so early. (I’m afraid you would’ve been ten pounds if you made it to due date!).

Ben has so. much. hair.

Safe to say that big brothers are completely obsessed with “baby Ben”. Also, sometimes they totally cooperate when I want to take pictures of them. Yay for that!

Anna + Brett. Engagement Session.

| Posted in: engagements

I met Anna years ago when I photographed her senior session as she was graduating from high school. It was so fun to reconnect and talk details about her January wedding and how she met her fiance, Brett!

Anna + Brett’s engagement session was the last thing I photographed before welcoming my new baby boy, Benjamin, on July 6th! More on that later. I partially credit my early labor to the hour-long hike that we went on to get to this gorgeous bridge at the end of the session ;) Thanks for a fun evening, you two!

Rachel + Justin. Summerfield Farms Wedding.

| Posted in: weddings

What a way to end my Spring/Summer wedding season! (I’ll be taking off some time for my baby’s arrival later this month!) Rachel + Justin are both so sweet and low-key and their Summerfield Farms wedding was full of sunflowers and sunshine and was just. so. fun.

I met up with Rachel and her girls at the bridal cottage where she was watching her pup on the live cam at doggy day care, munching on macarons – a gift from her hubby-to-be, and just generally being relaxed and adorable. At the same time my awesome second photographer, Laura Bradford, was photographing the guys getting ready on the other side of the property. I always love seeing the differences between the guys and girls pre-wedding prep but you wanna know something precious? We had our cameras time-synced and Rachel and Justin were putting on their shoes at the exact same time. I just love that! Other favorite parts of the day were Rachel’s incredible light blush layered gown, the chuppah and toast during the ceremony, the abundance of sunflowers, and the father-daughter dance that took everyone by surprise.

Rachel + Justin, I hope you’re enjoying the last of your honeymoon in Iceland! Thanks for being so great.

Katie + Jim. Heritage Center at Mahaffie in Kansas City.

| Posted in: weddings

Happy Monday everyone! I thought this fun Memorial Day weekend wedding would help us get through the beginning of this week :)

I love connecting with all of my couples but this bride is a little extra special to me. My sweet cousin Katie and I spent 15+ years living across from each other and have watched each other through life’s highs and lows and bumpy transitions. I was thrilled when she and Jim found each other and was even more happy that I got to make the trip to Kansas City to document their wedding weekend.

These two are so fun and their wedding day fit them so perfectly! Cocktail hour was full of lawn games, caricature artists, and food truck appetizers and the dance party at the reception could’ve lasted all night. I think the photos tell the story pretty well so I’ll shut up and you can start looking!
