I have taken this family’s photos several times over the past several years. It’s been so much fun watching the kids grow up into young adults. The photo of them walking is a recreation of a photo from the first year I took their photos – that year, the youngest was just learning to walk!

This busy family needed their family photos updated (the last time I took their photos, both boys were shorter than mom!) and we were able to find a time before the fall sports rush started. I love that they included their family pet and thankfully the rain held off and the sun came out for a bit.

I appreciate having so many families that return so often for family photos! This is one of those families. Like so many of my families that come back frequently, their kids were so young that first year and now they are in middle school and high school. It’s fun watching the kids grown up and see how much their interests change or stay the same, but at the same time I feel the same as the mom of this family – I wish they would stay little just awhile longer.

I love the location that this family chose for their session. This garden area always has such a unique look to it every season, but by the end of Fall it has this overgrown, secret garden look to it and I think that’s my favorite look here. Unfortunately, it may be the last session I have here, as the location is in the process of stopping all photo sessions here. It’s a beautiful location for photos, but it’s intended purpose is for people to be able to enjoy the gardens, not to be a beautiful backdrop for photographers.

I love that I have so many families that I get to see every year! This family always chooses a location close to them that both kids are quite familiar with. This year, their morning session had such gorgeous light coming through the trees that it really highlighted all of the beautiful Fall colors. And all of those leaves on the path made for some great leaf throwing fun!

A high school friend and her family made the trek to Kansas City for a weekend get away and to have family photos taken. As a family they love to bike, explore and spend as much time outside as possible. This nature trail near Platte City made the perfect location for their family photos and gave the three boys plenty of space to ride their bikes and explore in between photos.

I love getting to see this family every other year! The first year I took their family photos, the youngest one was still in preschool. It’s amazing how fast time goes by! I love the look of the area where we took their family photo. So many different textures and looks all within a few blocks. While I was checking out the area before their session, I found the metal die-cut F – perfect for their last name.

I love the colors of Fall and this family picked the best weekend of the year last year to have their photos taken! Gorgeous colors, perfect weather and a beautiful family!

The S Family | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

I loved catching up with this family during their session. They had recently moved and wanted updated family photos for their new home. I loved their location choice and the beautiful tree we eventually found!

Updated Family Photos | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

I always have at least one or two families each year that haven’t had a family photo taken in awhile. This was one of those families. If I remember correctly, the youngest was still a baby when their last family photo was taken. So it had been a few years. 😉 With their kids getting older and the oldest one moving away from the area, this family wanted (and needed) updated photos. Thankfully the weather worked out while their daughter was home on vacation and we were able to squeeze their session in!

Summer Session | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

This was the second year I had taken their family photos and it’s so fun to see how much their kids have changed in a year! They picked a location that they spend a lot of time exploring. It was fun for me to walk the area with them and to see all of the hidden spots with gorgeous morning light.

Urban Fall Family Session | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

This is another family that has been with me since I started my business. I love that they take the time to update their family photos every other year. It doesn’t matter how late in the fall season they have their photo session, they always seem to be have picture perfect weather!

A Chilly Morning | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

I have been lucky enough to see this family every year that I’ve been in business. Usually it’s a session with just their daughter, but occasionally we do a family session. This year, after their newest addition to the family, they needed an updated family photo that included both of their dogs. Thankfully their dogs were very patient and easy going and helped make this family session a quick one on this chilly fall morning.

Fall Colors | Platte City Family Photographer

This was my first family session with this family. They had just moved here from an area that doesn’t have much for fall color, so one of their goals was to take advantage of the fall colors. The trees were just starting to turn colors when we had their session, but thankfully we were able to find a few patches of color.

Summer Family Session | Kansas City Area Family Photographer

I loved seeing this family again! It’s been a couple of years since I’ve seen them and their boys have changed so much. Their session ended up being during one the hottest days of this summer. Once we realized that their late early evening session was still going to be quite warm, we changed it to early morning and we were finished before the heat became unbearable. Two of the goals for this session were trees for the boys to climb and plenty of options for family photos. I think we succeeded.
