Christian - 6 Years Old - Kansas children photography

If you can't find the cuteness in this kid, you need to get your eyes checked. Christian is 7. He's shy at first but his smile is so electrifying you almost forget about the initial quietness. Having never photographed him before I wasn't quite sure what to expect. Luckily he followed direction very well in the studio and then once he got outside in his element, he cut loose and I was able to capture him in his truest form.

He LOVES to catch bugs . . . but since there weren't any buys he examined all the acorns he could find!

One of my favorite moments of the shoot . . we were almost done with his GQ look and I asked him to just look at the ground. Very quiet and reflective...

I asked him what his dad looks like after a long day at work. He made this funny face and let out a big yawnnnnnn. Perfect!

Couples Photography - Kendel & Justin/Jacy & Taylor

I met Kendel & Justin about a week ago when they walked into the studio for the first time. A lot of times I will have met them previous to the shoot but this wasn't one of those times. I usually shoot better when I've had a chance to talk with them but this time was magic. They were AMAZING! It's hard to mess up when a great looking couple is in front of the camera...they were a joy to work with.

I've known Jacy since she was about 4 years old. She and Taylor stopped in to take part in our Valentine's Special. The shoes were quite colorful so I thought we would definitely have to show them off (see below).

Designer Brittany put together this composite . . . one of my favorites so far this year.
