wichita family photographer: the winchells

I had my parents location scout this for me since I wasn’t in Manhattan yet and we needed to make sure this special spot was available since we were all (Lora and I, plus all the stuff, plus all the people) coming from out of town and staying overnight at my parents after a K-State game to get this shoot in after we had been rained out a few weeks before.  They were pretty iffy if they had found the right spot, as was a passer-by, made clear when I overheard him say to my parents while we were Facetiming, “it’s not very scenic…just a bunch of scrubby bushes…probably not like she remembers it.”

Except, it’s exactly as I remembered it from when Bethany and I shoot swapped there a couple of years earlier, and thank goodness Lora had a bit more faith in me than my parents on this particular occasion.


Oh goodness, I just love these people to pieces and so capturing this season for them, and all of the quirks and personality of their kiddos in this gorgeous crisp fall morning light is so special to me.

The first of many fall sessions I plan to share this week…

"It's a feeling."

One of the best ways I've heard my work described.

It's like a dream you can't quite get back to, but you know was so so good because when you woke up you had a smile on your face, and you keep trying desparately to remember all of the vivid details you can be present in that in-between state for just a little more  - the warmth of being together, the sounds, the laughter...the feelings.

Here's more on what our work together could be.
