wichita family photographer: jasmin + fam

I’m normally a neutral-neutral-neutral girl, but Jasmin in this amazing fiery orange dress may just convince me otherwise.  She’s like a goddess in that number, and with her girls and hubby in tow, we had a lovely time picking wildflowers and following the sun.  Thank you, Jasmin, for asking me to make photographs of you with your family, as you do for so many other families!  I love so many of these, but especially the shots of you with your girls…such treasures!  xo

wichita family photographer: a summer night in wildflowers with the sauer six

This dream of a session was so much fun to plan and shoot with Elizabeth and her crew.  I saw so much of my kids in her littles, as their ages and spacing are pretty similar (albeit we’re one short of her full four).  I could have followed the big girls in their sweet pinafore dresses through the wildflowers all night long, and Jack’s spirit and smile were contagious.  Sweet baby Caroline was so relaxed she fell asleep for a portion of the shoot which was just about perfect and the sun put on a show as it went down and poured the most beautiful golden light on us.

Summer nights.

Gimme gimme.

wichita baby photographer: the warm sunny summer evening Lincoln William came into this world

Oh gosh, to say I was completely humbled when Erin (of Erin Kate Photography) asked me to consider photographing the birth of her third child would be an understatement.  Humbled and anxious.  I knew I would be completely inspired by her strength and vulnerability bringing life into this world, but I’ve previously shied away from birth photography because frankly, the logistics are a nightmare for this mama of three with zero family in town, and a hubby that can’t be my backup should I get called away in the middle of the night, in the middle of school pickup, tball practice dropoff, etc.

So when Erin ended up having a scheduled induction, and my in-laws could come and spend the entire day with my crew, our stars had aligned, and I was incredibly blessed to behind the camera when Lincoln William came earth-side.

I’m reminded after every birth story I hear, witness, experience or am told, about what an absolute miracle each child really is.

wichita baby photographer: Madeline and Elsie in Emerald Grass and Flowers

It’s families like this one that make me just so incredibly grateful and humbled that I have a job I just adore.

Capturing your most precious moments, the details of fine baby hairs, squinty eye smiles, the wonderment of childhood, the feeling of just how much you love these babies caught in a single moment of time.

It’s just the best.

wichita baby photographer: vivian turns one!

Vivian turned one, and during one of her mama’s stay-at-home days we gathered her big sis and bro and played in her backyard over the noon hour.  These sibling are just the sweetest, and they have the best infections smiles!  I can SO relate to Charese and her husband as their three are pretty much the same ages as my children so they get my daily CHAOS.  And I get theirs.  😉

Vivian, you look like a little fairy in that dress and flower crown headband, and I could just scoop you up!  So precious.
