Moving Portrait: Mini-Keepsake Documentary Photography Film

Though I have identified myself a Documentary and Lifestyle Photographer for years, I found that there were pieces of my daughter’s personality that still images just couldn’t quite grasp. When I started creating Documentary Family Films and using videography to capture our life, I finally found what I was looking for.

Henningson Family: Lifestyle Session at Tuttle Creek Lake

My absolute favorite types of photography sessions are one where my clients break from the “norm” and want to capture themselves doing something they love.

Lessons Learned: When Risk Pays Off

Risk has been something I’ve avoided at all cost for a large portion of my life. I really, really dislike it, it was always too scary for me. But 3 years ago, in attempt to push myself and try new things, I decided to enter a photography contest. It’s free, but it’s a gigantic contest. This year, there were over 500,000 images entered.

I have been studying and creating Documentary Family Films since last April and I finally have one to share with you today. I’ve been obsessed for years now with capturing pieces of our every day and my daughter’s childhood. Creating these films allows me to preserve our memories in ways photographs just don’t quite capture.

Sunflower Fields and Photography Mini Sessions

Kansas is known as the "Sunflower State" and for good reason. We seem to have quite a few fields over the state that bloom at various times in the Fall. These sunflowers are somewhat iconic of our state and I feel they capture a family's time in Kansas perfectly. My Sunflower Photography Mini Sessions are now booking!
