Models in the Making {Wichita Children's Photographer}

A friend of mine contacted me last week because she needed head shots of her children. Apparently, their modeling agency needs them! And once you see these cuties, you'll totally understand why! Now, they just need to warm up to the cameraperson a little more.....;)





Good luck you guys!

And not mine! :)

I had the great fun of hanging out with these two cuties (and their Mom and Dad) this morning!





Thanks again for playing with me this morning you guys! We really had a good time and it's nice to get a peek into what my life might be like in a year or so. ;-)

One More Sneak! {Wichita Family and Children's Photographer}

I know you guys have been waiting for these! I've been studying hard and have finally pinned a new, more effective work flow for my post processing. These images make me happy, and I hope they make you happy, too. :)




(an extra for you M, because I just love how this image of K turned out!)

Mini Session Sneak Peeks! {Wichita Family and Children's Photographer}

A bright and sunny day greeted me when I arrived at Botanica this morning. First up, two beautiful, highly active boys who made me glad I went to bed early the night before!



Next, these three gorgeous boys joined me for a walk around the gardens!


As the sun rose a bit in the sky and the temps started to make us sweat I was joined by two darling sisters! S didn't quite know what to make of me but as you can see she warmed up in the end!



Whew! What a morning! And it wasn't quite over yet. After a quick lunch break I met a precious family trio. J is such an incredibly laid back, easy going baby. Not only did we wake him from his nap but he's also teething! I was totally prepared for Cranky Monster Baby but he didn't cry once.



I had so much fun today! I can't wait to finish editing these for you and I hope you enjoy your sneaks! I will post one more from each session tomorrow afternoon so be looking. :)

Referral Bonus!

I just love my clients! I love seeing families grow, attending amazing births and watching beautiful children come into the world, and capturing breathtaking images that will last a lifetime.

And what I love even more is when my clients love my work! The best thanks in the world is word of mouth advertising. When you tell your friends and family about my services I get to meet new people and do what I love and that's an incredible gift.

To say thanks, if someone books a full or half portrait session and references your name, I will take 50% off your next session. If 3 people book full or half sessions with BTP your next shoot is on the house. If 5 people call and tell me that you sent them, I'll pay YOU a $50 referral bonus and give you your next full session for free. And if you send a birth photography client my way and they book an entire maternity/birth/newborn package I will send you a $50 thank you. All as thanks for helping me build my business!

Thank you all!

5 Years and Two Kids Later....{Wichita Child and Family Photographer}

I met up with one of my dearest friends J and her husband C this evening and got to see my friend Miss Bee. I had the pleasure of meeting her for the first time the very day she was born! And now she's almost three! Where DOES the time go? Today I also got to meet with her new little sister, another Miss B, who is almost a year old already. Their Daddy just loves me and my camera and he LOVES to have his picture taken. ;) Can you hear me teasing him? I hope you guys adore these as much as I do, I had so much fun playing with you tonight!

Almost 3!

It's a Beautiful Life! {Wichita Family Photographer}

I had a delightful time this afternoon chasing these kiddos! They are so close in age to my own that I can't help but enjoy them. And those eyes! Seriously gorgeous and so well mannered. I felt so much pleasure knowing these images will be going over to Iraq to make a soldier happy. Enjoy!
