Oh what fun – Norah’s smash cake photos

Little Norah gets messy.  Smash cake photos celebrate her first birthday.

To honor little Norah turning one, her parents planned an afternoon of delight. Gold balloons, party favors, and smash cake photos. Was I jealous?   Uh, yeah, a little bit.

Do you have a little one with a milestone coming up? Contact me today to book a family photo shoot or check out more pictures here and here.

Soft and airy Newborn Photography Session

Marisa and Ignacio welcomed the sweetest little bundle of joy, Leo a month ago. Big sister Alessandra was so wonderful with him during his newborn photography session, giving him kisses and soft squeezes. Somehow Marisa was still glowing, despite the sleepless nights. She’s pretty much my hero.

So happy for this family.  Wishing them all the best!

One-of-a-kind Table by Rohan Ward

Sculpture Table by Furniture Designer Rohan Ward

I recently had the pleasure of photographing this beautiful, one-of-a-kind table designed and built by furniture designer Rohan Ward.  Found on the side of the road as he was driving home one day, Ward hauled the massive trunk, which was originally three times this size, to his workshop in Wilmette, Il, where he spent the next six weeks transforming it into a sculptural piece of metal, glass, and wood.



Cozy Family Photos at The Landing in Kansas City

Snuggly Family Photos on a freezing winter day at The Landing

The mother of this beautiful family below is one of my dearest friends.  We were roommates in college and have stayed close since with annual “Missouri girl’s trips” over the years.

Shannon is one of those people with what seems to be endless energy and ability.  The minute, no no, the second she picked me from the airport for this most recent trip, we were off talking a mile a minute with no pause in between topics till three days later when I had to say goodbye.  She’s like the energizer bunny, she just keeps going and going, until she suddenly stops, puts her earplugs in, and promptly falls asleep for exactly seven hours.  The next morning she jumps out of bed and immediately starts tackling her to do list.  Seriously!  I can’t tell you how many girls trips we’ve had where we’re all still rubbing the sleep from our eyes and Shannon’s been on the phone making plans and figuring out complex concepts an hour or more.

The tall drink of water in these pictures is Shannon’s husband Vladmir. I can’t imagine a better match for her. He’s as passionate about soccer as Shannon is about growth and learning. It was to play soccer in college that originally brought him to the states from Belgrade, Serbia.  He now owns the fastest growing soccer club, Puma F. C. in the Kansas City area. If it’s not obvious from the pictures, he’s an amazing Dad, thoughtfully (and adoringly) helping to raise their two lovely daughters.
