TOP FAN!! Just sayin’.
Hi, Misty! Will you be announcing fall mini session dates soon? I would like to book one! ❤️
I just have to say that your pictures are amazing and I've been staring at my computer for an hour trying to figure out which ones I want to use on our Christmas cards- we truly love all of them! Thank you for capturing these moments :)
I wish I could add a new 5 star review every time you photograph our family's special events. I am so grateful not only to have you as one of my best friends but also to know I can count on you to be a professional, kind, accommodating, helpful, and gifted photographer. You have captured all of the most beautiful moments in our family from marriage, maternity, to newborn- 1yr+, family portraits, business headshots, and now our daughter's Quinceañera. You were amazing as always! Thank you, thank you, thank you, for playing such an important role in making this day a dream come true. 😘

Fresh, Joyful, Timeless Wedding and Portrait Photography

Just a sample of my favorite shots from yesterday's mini sessions! It was so sweet to see some of my favorite clients mixed in with a couple of new families!

Here’s to the first day of fall…the season of crunchy leaves, warm drinks, fire pit nights and cozy sweaters!
🍁 ✨ 🧡 ☕️
If loving fall makes me “basic”, hand me a cider and some boots and drop me off at the pumpkin patch! 😉

Yesterday was such a sweet celebration for Susie and Phil. This was their third wedding celebration date, and although they've technically been married for nearly a year, it didn't take away from how special the day was! Their classic details, kind spirits and fun family and friends, made this day so ideal to photograph! Just a "few" of my favorite shots from the day...

Today is the day! ✈️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The trip I’ve been simultaneously looking forward to and dreading all at the same time! 😆 So looking forward to two beautiful Virginia weddings, a Senior session for an an amazing girl who I’ve watched grow up, and five family sessions with VA clients. Not to mention coffees, lunches and tacos with friends while I’m back, and extra time with @malloriegaylephotography! But leaving my family is HARD. I don’t like being away from them and I’ve spent the whole week fighting anxiety about it. 😨 But ready or not, the time has come! I’m going to do my best to count all my blessings! 🤍

Our schools start an hour late every Friday, but today I forgot and got up to prep lunches and make breakfast at 6 am. 🙃 By the time I realized my mistake I was fully awake with a coffee in hand, so I sat down for some extra quiet time and prayer.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As someone who struggles with anxious thoughts, I’ve read Matthew 6 many, many times and have memorized bits and pieces of the chapter. Today when I read it, it felt fresh and new. (This is the beauty of scripture…it’s living and breathing and hits you in different ways at different times in your life.) Let me share a little with you in case you are feeling anxious today. (Who isn’t in this world we are living in?) ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
“So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and his righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.” Matthew 6:33-35 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
One day at a time. 🤍

Shooting in new locations here in the Kansas City area is so fun! This morning I got to meet a brand new family at a brand new spot and I'll definitely be going back! Thanks York family for trusting me with your memories!

Last weekend I got to visit Johnson Farms Plants and Pumpkins to take maternity photos for the Harpers! I can't get over how beautiful the flowers, the light and the family were. Can't wait to photograph this family again with their new addition in a couple of months! #documentinglegacy

I thank God today for 17 years of Ashton James. Our rainbow baby…who is now nearly 6’3”. So grateful that our snuggly, sensitive and silly boy has grown into a snuggly, strong, empathetic, hilarious young man. AJ has a heart of gold. To know him well is to love him. And love him we do! Happy birthday, AJ. I thank God for the blessing of being your mom. One of the greatest honors of my life!

Elizabeth and Gregor's wedding celebration was a long time coming! This was their 4th...yes 4th date and their patience was rewarded with the loveliest party! Although they were technically married 18 months ago, they got to get all dressed up again with their favorite people on Saturday at the historic President Lincoln's Cottage in Washington DC.

09/07/2021

It is, as they say, the Mondayest Tuesday ever. 🙃 After a weekend to DC and back again and then time with extended family yesterday, I’m fighting the urge to nap and it’s not even 9 am! 💤
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Instead I’m going to make a second cup of coffee and get some previews ready for this lovely couple! Stay tuned! 🤍

What a fantastic start to my business in KC! 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I met Kristen and Patrick back at Hawthorne Elementary School, and it had been over 30 years since I had seen them in person! Thanks to Instagram, Kristen and I reconnected a few years ago. It was so special to have them as my first KC clients! 🤍

08/14/2021

We officially crossed the one month mark of living in our new home! Honestly the last weeks have been kind of a blur and I’m craving more routine. But overall, even though change is especially hard for me, I feel pretty settled and every day this seems more like home! 🤍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Tonight I have my first KC family session! Bonus, it’s with two friends from elementary school! I’m so excited! 👏🏼

My feelings about Friday! 🙌🏼⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stan has Fridays and Saturdays off now, and so today feels like the beginning of the weekend for us. It's a rainy day here in the KC area, but I'm just going to call it "cozy" and embrace it! 🤗 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Started my morning with edits to this incredible wedding day. I can't wait to share more from this celebration! What are your plans for the weekend? 🤍

I made a huge announcement in my newsletter and then realized I never even said a word about it here. Oops! 🙊⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’m retiring from wedding photography. Yes I still have contracted weddings through June of 2022 but I won’t be taking on any additional wedding dates. I’ve loved shooting weddings for a decade, but it’s time to move on to the next phase of my business. 🤍⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll be focusing mostly on families…including outdoor portraits and also lifestyle family and newborns. I’ll also be expanding branding photography for small businesses! Why not get all the change over with at once? 😂

When I first spoke with Kate nearly two years ago, I was struck with her genuine kindness almost immediately. Then soon after I got to meet Dave and found that same authentic and sweet spirit in him too! This couple... they are joyful, personable and make everyone around them feel special. Their wedding day was a reflection of that, and you could hear it in the way their friends and family spoke about them. After a postponement, they were blessed with the most mild and lovely July weather for their celebration. I am over the moon happy for them and so thankful I got to be the one to capture their wedding day. Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Hoyle!

Kate and Dave assembled an absolutely STELLAR vendor team. It was so wonderful working with them!
