As my life meanders along, I occasionally am struck by the significance of some relationships, the way they’ve somehow become a huge part of how you became the person you are. My friendship with Sammy is like that. As great as those early days of friendship were in college, I had no idea the way our lives would grow together and the ways we would end up encouraging each other. I’m deeply grateful for the chance to share these life moments with Sammy and I…Continue Reading “Samantha // Expecting”

I’ve known Amy and her husband Jeramy for a few years now and I was so excited for Amy when I found out she was expecting! Recently Amy ran into some possible complications with her pregnancy and there was concern that they would have to deliver their little boy early. Amy asked me if I would take some maternity photos for her to remember this special time with her family. Of course, I said yes! The next day we met for this awesome session and…Continue Reading “Amy + Jeramy // Expecting”

When I was pregnant with Finn, there was another soon-to-be momma at our church who was due to have her first child (a little boy) about a month before me. We would often share knowing looks and frequent check-ins with one another on Sunday mornings. I like to think it was our way of showing solidarity, a little “isn’t this wonderful?” mixed with a little “you can do this!” Now that we both have little boys about the same age we continue to experience shared mom things….Continue Reading “Eli // One Year Old”

Welcome baby Zeb

My brother and his amazing wife, Jenna, welcomed their third little man into the family a couple months ago. I am immeasurably blessed by every opportunity I am given to document the meaningful moments in the lives of those I love. From the anticipation of new life I shared with them during Jenna’s maternity session to the thrum of new love that filled the house and surrounded their growing family when I took these pictures, every minute was joy. I am over the moon and past the stars and…Continue Reading “Welcome Baby Zebulun – Newborn Lifestyle Session”

Golden Hour Maternity Photo

  When my very best friend came to visit a couple months ago, we made sure to document her second pregnancy with some sun-filled images in “the” field. It was all that used to separate us from each other during our childhood. We might live several states apart now, but we still get to share all the glorious bits of life as we experience them. It still feels like we’re just a field away anytime we need each other to help navigate each new turn of our lives. I’ve been…Continue Reading “In a Field with Flowers – Lizzy’s Maternity Session”

Jenna's Dreamy Maternity Session - Leavenworth Lifestyle Photographer

I met Jenna and Bobby on a warm June morning and we documented the belly of baby number three! Summer was in full form, but we managed to get some fantastic images! Jenna is an amazing model and Bobby is a photographer’s dream assistant. I can always count on him for some creative freestyle reflector work and flower crown construction. I thought it was the perfect time to blog this session because baby was born yesterday! I’m happy to capture this time in their lives…Continue Reading “Jenna’s Dreamy Lifestyle Maternity Session”

I didn’t plan to offer any mini sessions this year, but once the leaves  started changing I knew I just had to do something to get my fix in! Fall is my favorite time of year and I can’t think of a better way to celebrate than to jump into a huge pile of leaves with you and your loved ones and capture the spirit of the season. Here is some information for you, if you have questions for me or would like to reserve…Continue Reading “2013 Fall Mini Sessions | Heritage Park, Olathe”
