Glowing, Part Two! {Wichita Maternity Photographer}

I got to visit with my friends A and C again today. If you don't remember, they are pictured here. The birth is now fast approaching and I'm VERY excited to be capturing this spectacular time in their lives. Pregnancy is so beautiful and first babies are particularly fun. Just a few more short weeks guys, and he'll be here to bring sunshine to your days!

His first baby.....a son.

K&K in Kansas {Wichita Children's Photographer}

K&K's mom tells me they are often mistaken for twins. Which I can totally see because they are just two years apart, share many of the same features, and are almost the same height! They are gorgeous children and I have to say, Mom gets two 5x7's with her package special and I don't wanna be her when it comes time to pick! ;) Enjoy!



K&K and a Kansas Sky

This one reminds me so much of my own childhood, goofing off with my little brothers. :D

Second Shooter {Wichita Newborn Photographer}

Today I had the fun of joining my apprentice, Chelle, at a newborn session. I have been helping her learn about photography for the past few months and I greatly enjoy watching her grow as well as gaining a free assistant at my own shoots! ;) If you hire me for portrait sessions, you'll probably get to meet her!

Miss A's wonderfully laid back parents were game for pretty much anything and they allowed me to take a few shots of my own. As I have several newborn sessions coming up it was great to touch up my skills! What a darling baby girl! At 8 weeks I was a little worried we'd have a big mess on our hands. Newborn sessions are really best done in the first two weeks before babies get....well, a little more "preference" on what they will and won't let you do! They just sleep, eat, and poop on me when they're tiny. But this bitty one was putty in our hands. The sweetness might just slay you...hang on! Watch out for those lips.....

In Our Hands


Bright Eyes!

Expectant Glow {Wichita Maternity Photographer}

A is expecting her first baby! She's beautifully pregnant right now, and I'm excited that I get to capture her growing belly, her birth, and her gorgeous baby boy coming this fall. Thanks for braving the heat tonight guys! You were awesome! And can't wait to do some fun stuff in a couple of weeks. ;) Here are your sneaks, enjoy!

Waiting on him

Modern, Chic, and with a Bump {Wichita Maternity Photographer}

This is M, and she's all those thing. In 2006-2007 I shot four births. Two of those ladies are pregnant again and I'll have the honor of making them my first repeat clients in the coming weeks! M is one of those and I'm so excited to meet this new baby!

Last night, we met up in Old Town Wichita to get some images of this seriously beautiful expectant Mama in a less than traditional setting. I had so much fun til that nasty storm rolled in and killed the light. She even agreed to hop in the fountain for me! :)



Then we headed to the park for a few more "traditional" poses:
