wichita family photographer: lucas is one!

It seems like I was just meeting this sweet couple for their newborn shoot, and yet here we are celebrating Lucas’s first birthday!

Time goes so quickly, but one thing has stayed the same.  This little boy has always been such a darling, smiley guy!

Happy ONE, cute boy!

wichita family photographer: where laura and nate watched their three in rows of wheat

Does it get better than this?  I ask myself that a lot lately, even after the hard days with my own three kids at home.  This is pretty great, this season of life.

And when you strip everything away and just take a night to celebrate your blessings by being together, in a gorgeous emerald wheat field no less, it feels pretty amazing.

Two red-headed little girls in pink plus a boy with a twinkle in his eye that I’ve gotten to photograph since he was a 7lb newborn baby, doesn’t hurt, either.

Mucho love, Hands family!  You know I adore you!

Well these two (+ pup) were just darn cute. Gosh, that phase of life when you’re on the cusp of beginning your life together and everything is so exciting and all the plans of dreams of your future are right there in front of you…it’s a good one.

And it looks good on Libby and Marcus.

So happy for you both!!

wichita maternity photographer: carrie and her family in a golden blooming field

I’m so glad I took my allergy medicine the morning of the Swartz’ family shoot…because POLLEN.

But even more so grateful for families that let me tag along on the adventures of their life as they add babies and love to their families, time and time again.

And this field of golden blooms, well, that’s icing on the cake.

wichita maternity photographer: claire and finley

Thank you universe and Google for bringing my sweet friend Claire into my life, when she was searching for a maternity photographer while pregnant with Finley, four years ago.  I’ve watched this beautiful mother-daughter relationship develop between the two of them and was over the moon to photograph them at a time that we thought would be about four weeks before baby brother arrived.  But he came only a few days later, making these moments captured even sweeter.

Baby Dawes was prayed for so so much. For weeks, months, and years. And so to see my friend just radiant with anticipation and love from within, well, it was just the most heartwarming thing to witness.

So happy for you, Watson family!
