Lake Viking Engagement Photos {Mark+Laura}

Mark and Laura are perfect for each other and dear friends of ours. I am so excited for these two and their new adventures in Minnesota. I love that Laura is always up for anything and Mark is so laid back. It was only fitting to do their engagement session at the lake and the sunset was perfect.  Everyone is always nervous for their engagement session but I think we had plenty of fun and put all nerves aside. They even decided to take the plunge in more that one way, by jumping into the lake at the end of the session. Love it!I can’t wait to be a part of your big day in Minnesota next year!

How they met: Joe and I went to high school together but didn’t start dating until he had already graduated from Mizzou and I was in my Senior year at Missouri State. We reconnected via Twitter (romantic, I know) because I had tweeted that “Guys were stupid” (again, romantic) and he replied with “Not all of us are”. I came back from Springfield after Spring semester finals and we went on our first date to my favorite local restaurant, Canoe Club. The rest is history 🙂

Classic Kansas City Engagement Session {Scott+Kris}

I love it when I met a couple that can be so in love and sweet, but have this amazing goofy side to them. It was so great getting to know Scott and Kris for their engagement session at Loose Park and the Kansas City plaza. We laughed so much and I mean how cute are these two together?  Thank goodness for a break in this heat so we could enjoy our evening and not melt.


Lifestyle Newborn Photographer {Mason}

Mason Christopher decided to enter the world 11 weeks early. He has been a trooper and Chris and Jennifer were so happy to take him home.  I can’t imagine the journey you have been on, but I do know something about motherhood and that is you will do whatever it takes when you see their smiling faces.  Congrats again!

Colonial Presbyterian Family Session {Hymer Family}

We started going to Colonial Presbyterian’s preschool as a recommendation from my dear friend Emily Kearny.  My son loved his first year and his amazing teachers, we could not of landed at a better place.  Every year Colonial has a teacher appreciate dinner and I wanted to donate a family session. Kim and her family won and she has been a teacher at Colonial for 12 years.  Now that is dedication! It was so fun getting to know her sweet family better and I’m excited to meet more and more families at Colonial next year.
