I've driven by this tree nursery a million times. It's on the way to my church, and I've gone to my church 3-4 times a week ever since I was in high school, just with the various events I'm a part of. One day as I was driving past it, and the sun was going down, I realized it would make such a beautiful location for photos! So I did what any photographer would do - find some people to style and model for me as soon as possible.
Enter Kristyn and Spenser. They were engaged to be married and needed some engagement photos, so it worked out perfectly. I asked her to model this burgundy dress for me, and she asked if she could wear the floral dress. Anyone who knows me, knows I'm obsessed with florals. So I definitely said yes. I even made a bouquet out of artificial flowers for the session! It was absolutely perfect. Even more than I had envisioned. I just adore the way they look at each other, don't you?!
My sister and her boyfriend are absolutely adorable. I did photos for them about 2 years ago for their anniversary, and we decided they needed some new ones for their anniversary this year! I also got to shoot at a new location in KC. My mom actually told us about this spot, and Mariah drove by to check it out while video chatting me.
It was the perfect backdrop! You can see a little bit of the first colors of Fall. The leaves just beginning to change and fall from the trees.
You can also see my kiddo photo bombing in the background of one of the photos. Normally I would edit that out. But since it's my sister's photos, I thought she'd appreciate her nephew running around in a few photos. Hee hee.
I seriously can't wait until Nicole + Josh's wedding next fall! I have a blast working with them every single time! We laugh the whole time. Their love is sweet and silly and fun, just like them. Nicole is a hair stylist in Kearney. And she's also my hair and make up artist for all of my boudoir sessions. So you'll see her around here a lot. She's amazing at what she does!
I grew up with Nicole, and she and Josh started dating in High School. Now, here we all are almost 7 years later! They're finally getting married!! I couldn't be happier for them. Their session was a little chilly, but it's okay because I like to make my couples get close and snuggled up anyway!
I hope you can sense the goofiness that is Josh, and that you enjoy their photos as much as I do.
Sweet little princess Anastasia. And her adorable little nursery!
I have been able to call Whitney my best friend for 10 whole years! I knew her in her youth and singleness. I stood beside her as she became a wife. And now I get to watch as her and Daniel become parents. I am so blessed to able to watch this little girl grow.
She was so sweet when I came to take her newborn photos. But she is always WIDE awake when I come to visit her! So unlike a little newborn! By the end she dozed off a little, and then I rocked her to sleep.
She is just so precious! I hope you enjoy the love between this little family!
