Simon Family: Lifestyle Photography and Moving Portrait Film at K-State University Gardens

First Official Family Photographs are one of the best reasons to have a Family Lifestyle Photography Session. I love helping clients create a session tailored to those first few years of the life of their little ones. This sweet family was no exception, it was so fun tagging along with them as they spent time together, capturing beautiful images to create those photos to hang on their walls for years to come. We also created a Moving Portrait Film for them, to capture the sweetest moments between themselves and their baby girl.

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.

On a beautiful day in October, these two love birds brought two families together in a very beautiful way. Their wedding was focused on their friends and family and celebrating their love for each other. It could not have been a more perfect day.

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. This Family Photography Session included mountain biking and paddle boarding at Tuttle Creek State Park and we had so very much fun documenting these memories.

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. That’s a HUGE number of photographs!!

Sledding: Sixty Seconds of Motion

As a general rule, I dislike any month of the year where the average temperature is below 60 degrees. So when it feels like January flew by, I couldn’t be happier (I’m truly part of Team Summer). And though I really dislike the cold (and I’m being very generous in describing it as “dislike”), there’s something about seeing the excitement snow brings my daughter that will make me put on my warmest clothes and brave an hour or 2 in the cold for her. r.

Trimming the Tree: Documentary Photography and Film

I think we can all agree, there are usually two kinds of people in the world: those who play Christmas music year ‘round and those who think it should only be heard between Thanksgiving and New Years. I know several people from both camps and, while I can see it from both sides (and honestly go back and forth myself on which I prefer), this year I was excited for the “socially acceptable” time.

Nature Walks: Documentary Photography and Film

I am super-excited to share a new project with you today and a challenge I’m taking part in. 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: Brit's Garden Acres, Manhattan Kansas

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!
