Bonita + Tre : Family photos in Wichita

I had the privilege of taking photos with Bonita and her son Tre two weeks ago, and am so excited to show you a few of the shots we took.  They were a fun crew!

But I have to say, their dog Hennessy was the star of the park; people kept walking by and saying what a beautiful boxer she is!  I have to say, I agree!


Ah, that light!

I hope you can tell what a fun family this is.  I just had to throw in that photo in the lower left! Yes, I got one of them smiling nicely, but I think this one shows their personalities a bit more.  😉

This is my favorite photo from the whole session.  This is, I think, the photo from this session that is most likely to be shown around their family in 20 or 30 years.  Tre’s wife will giggle at how young and cute he is, his kids will exclaim how beautiful their grandma is, and everyone will see how much they love each other.  And love, my friends, is timeless!

Ahhh…  Does that photo just make you want to go hug on those you love, or what?  Go do it!  Have a great weekend, all!


Nicholas P : Baptism photos in Stafford

It was so special to help take photos at the baptism of little Nicholas at the beautiful First United Methodist Church in Stafford, Kansas!  The pastor there (Ben, my main man and usual second shooter) is part of a tight-knit group of friends that have made a point of getting together at least once a year since high school.  Ben married Nicholas’s parents a few years ago, and the whole high school gang made the trip to Stafford for his baptism.  That’s friendship, people — they came from Seattle, New York, and Chicago to be a part of this.

Tayla T : One-year photos in Wichita

Oh my goodness, could little miss Tayla be any more adorable??  Her mom and dad wanted some photos to celebrate her upcoming first birthday, and I was happy to oblige!  She was a little cranky and confused by the fake snow, but eventually we got that beautiful smile to come out.  (And no, we didn’t let her eat any of the snow or ornaments!)  I couldn’t resist taking some photos of the whole family at the very end of the session.  Congratulations on the first year, and may there be many more happy years to come!Tayla-11.24.13-BB9068b_WEBTayla-11.24.13-BB9018_WEBTayla-11.24.13-BB9081_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9093b_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9100b_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9512-Edit_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9529-Edit_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9535-Edit_WEB Tayla-11.24.13-BB9589-Edit_WEB
