Landon's mama Rachel was my very first session in Columbia and I've absolutely loved watching Landon grow ever since! He turned one at the beginning of the summer and we had so much fun capturing his busy little personality! Happy birthday Landon!
I've been wanting to work on my studio work and it just so happens I have a friend with a beautiful, amazing daughter who was turning thirteen. So Kaylee came into the studio and we had a blast trying on big dresses and high heels and making some beautiful images of a little girl who is becoming a beautiful woman - inside and out.
Thanks Jackie for sharing your sweet daughter - and letting me throw you in a few photos too!
Sweet Emery sure has grown since her newborn session and she is just FULL of smiles. I love seeing my Columbia babies grow!! <3
Its been almost exactly two years since I took Travie's two year old photos on his grandpas farm in Kirksville and this year we met at Fouch's Christmas Tree farm on a chilly November afternoon to take his four year old photos! He wasn't exactly thrilled at the idea to start with but mama, grandma and I were silly and full of fun bribery and finally got some smiles!
I was so happy to get sweet Landon back in my studio after doing his woodland themed newborn session six months ago! He's such a happy bright-eyed little man! His mama and daddy brought a cute vintage sled that looked so cute with my holiday set! I'm loving starting to get my Columbia babies back for new sessions!!
Just look how much Landon has grown in six months! Can't wait to see you again at a year!!
It's been a couple years since my family has been back in Missouri so we were pretty excited to take a trip back - especially during the beautiful fall season! My husbands cousin Lindsay called me up to see if we could sneak in some pictures of her little man Travie for his second birthday. It rained almost the whole time we were there but the very last day it cleared up and we headed out to Lindsay's parents farm where we got some amazing shots of Travie in the most amazing sunset light!
I've been photographing sweet Dru-dru-bee since he was in his mama's tummy! I love this boy and his family! We decided to be a little different for his first birthday cake smash and chose to smash a watermelon instead! It was a perfect summers end session and we wrapped it up with a tub and some bubbles!
And of course we did capture a little confection smashing at his actual party! ;)
You've come a long way baby! I'm so blessed to have been along for the journey!
I was so excited to see my sweet little nieces Kayla and Braelyn when we visited Missouri earlier this month. The last time we saw one another we took pictures to announce that Becca was expecting Braelyn well over a year ago. Miss Braelyn is just about to turn 9 months old and as cute as can be. She and my own Quinn are exactly 3 months apart to the day so we had lots of fun with our sweet babies (who we discovered nurse on exactly the same schedule!)
My two older kiddos, Ian and Zoe had a ton of fun playing with Kayla and were oh so sad to leave when it was time to come home. We captured lots of candid images over the week but we made special time for some studio shots as well.
