Robert Randolph & the Family Band

I love to shoot concerts for fun. On Saturday I had the opportunity to shoot one of my favorite guitarists, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, at Crossroads behind Grinders. These dudes can flat out PLAY!!!! They put on an amazing show & their music is so positive and uplifting that you leave feeling absolutely wonderful.

I also met a couple of rad photographers who were shooting as well:
James Allison
Chuck France

He just plays with so much PASSION & ENERGY!

Here's a video you all should check out if you don't know who Robert Randolph is...and, if you do, watch it anyway. It's a great pick me up!

Return of the Dinos!

I ran into some dinosaurs sometime ago. I was scared!

Luckily, they left me alone and started terrorizing others...

Have a wonderful Monday!!!!!

Taylor & Mallory

This is our third annual shoot with Taylor and Mallory. I know I say it alot, but I can't believe how fast these little girls are growing up! It's fun to go back and see how much they've changed. Here's the blog post from last year, and the one from two years ago is here.

For this session, we met in Lawrence on the Kansas campus. It holds a lot of memories for mom & dad. They both went to school there, it's where dad proposed to mom, plus it's a fun place to shoot. And, when we heard they had KU cheerleading outfits for the girls...let's just say, we smiled :)

Jenny's favorite.

My favorite.

Another favorite. Can you tell we've been enjoying the grass shots lately?

working on her modeling portfolio :)

here's where the proposal happened :)

KU cheerleading outfits + mommy & daddy's textbooks = MAJOR CUTENESS

We will tramp, tramp, tramp around the columns
With a cheer for old Mizzou!

oh, wait, wrong cheer :)

Rock, Chalk Jayhawk!

Happy kiddos make me smile!

I just love these last 4 shots. They are so cute in their little cheer unis!

Audrey & Lily

Wow. It's hard to believe Audrey is almost four years old and we've been taking her pictures since she was three months old. And now her little sister Lily is 18 months! Time sure flies... We had a great time with these guys last week and here are some favorite photos from the session...

Married: Kim & Marc

Hair/Makeup: CaraSue Hall
Flowers: Bella Design Studio
Ceremony: Leawood United Methodist Church
Reception: Ritz Charles
DJ: Marc O'Leary

Love, top hats, laughter, canes, tears of joy, crazy dancing, a firetruck, oh, and eye patches (even with all that, I'm sure I'm leaving something out). Our wedding on International Talk Like a Pirate Day had it all. Most importantly, though, Kim & Marc got married. And...they had TONS of fun doing it...classy pirates, anyone?

Marc & Kim's fun loving, free spirit attitudes were on display all day.

I feel refreshed after looking at this picture.
The bridal party....RULED.

Marc had to defend his honor at one point...

then got smacked for fighting on his wedding day.

This picture cracks me up :)

So does this one. Footsies, anyone?

A huge thanks to the KCFD for letting us play on the firetruck!

The classiest pirates I've ever seen!

Bella Design Studio, as expected, did an awesome job on the flowers/details.

Pre-wedding warmup?



happily married!

I was always good at math, but these 2 equations stumped me.

Party time!!

Love it!

Congrats, you 2 little lovebirds!
