Laundry Day (Emporia Kansas Child Photographer)

Could this portrait session have been anymore fun? Oh no I don't think so! Jessica was kind enough to let me borrow her lovely daughters to try out a fun location. The laundry mat! Her girls had never been to the laundry mat before so it was a fun little adventure for all of us.

The colors and the light at the laundry mat were amazing! One of my favorite locations ever. And these adorable little models were so good and fun to photograph.

I strongly encourage families to think outside the box when it comes to locations for portraits. You just never know what will work wonderfully. Let's get a fun portrait session scheduled for you and your child soon! I'm currently booking for May sessions and May weekends are filling up fast so don't wait.

Tutu Much Fun

There is no way anyone can ever have tutu much fun! However, I do think that these tutu wearing girls and their wonderful mama pushed my fun meter almost to overload. Seriously! Could these children be any more adorable. Not only are they adorable but they are super funny.

Yes we did take photos on the train tracks. I can assure you that the tutu girls were being watched the entire time by three adults. There were no trains in sight! What was in sight were tutu clad girls laughing, playing ring around the rosie, throwing rocks, and smiling with their mama. All things I love to see!

These pictures are a perfect example of how fun adding props or special items to your portrait session can be. Mom made these adorable tutu's for her girls. Not only are the picture perfect but it really showcases for future reference the stage the girls were in. Someday these little girls will grow up and no longer want to play dress up. But mom now has captured this moment forever. She can look back at these pictures and remember how wonderful it was to make things for her babies and how adorable they looked in her creations. So please when scheduling your sessions lets discuss what personal items we can include in your portraits.

And please Ashley bring those adorable tutu girls back for some more fun in the future! I can't wait to see you all again.

Mr. Valentine (Emporia Child Photographer)

Mr. Jace stole my heart when I photographed him! His aunt brought him to the Valentine Mini Session as a gift for his mom. She knew nothing about the pictures so we had to keep them top secret. He thought that part was pretty cool. I just thought his personality was way to cool!

Jace had never had professional pictures taken before but you would have never known it. He was such a little ham for the camera. I handed him that love sign and he just went to town posing with it. I love letting kids just be themselves rather than giving them lots of directions and trying to pose them "right". Most of the time if you give kiddos the time they will create some pretty great poses on their own.

Rumor has it that Jace's mom loved the pictures of him. I can't imagine how surprised she was to open them up and see her cute boy. It really was a fabulous gift idea. I love suprises!

I will be having more mini sessions soon. This too would be a great opportunity to update your children's pictures or suprise a loved one with photos of their own child.

Mama To Be (Emporia Maternity Photographer)

I'd like to introduce you to Lacy! But most of all I'd like to introduce you to her baby bump. That adorable baby bump is housing Hayden. I have a strong feeling that Hayden is going to be one precious little boy. I'm so darn excited to meet him!

Before we all get to meet Hayden we had to get a few pictures of his beautiful mama. Lacy is going to be a great mom. In fact she already is a great mom. She has been working so hard to get ready for Hayden's arrival. I know she is super excited for him to arrive.

So Hayden in just a few more weeks I expect you to come visit me on the outside! While I loved photographing your bump I'm even more excited to photograph you! Be gentle on your mama. My camera and I will be waiting!

Baby Brother (Kansas Newborn Photography)

This little guy is quite a sweetheart! Ace is just as calm and laid back as can be. I think that is because he is the baby brother to 3 older siblings. When you are baby number four you have to be calm, cool, and collected or you could make your mama go crazy! The evening I took Ace's pictures I was also able to photograph his big sister Harper. Talk about adorable! She is a spirited funny little girl. It was so much fun to photograph the two of them. Hopefully we can get some pictures of all four kiddos together one days soon!
