Stunning Alexis | Lees Summit Maternity Photographer

Alexis is a friend of mine and she booked her newborn session with us. We are patiently waiting on the arrival of her sweet baby.  Alexis & Tim (daddy) did not find out the sex of the baby so will it be team blue or team pink?  We shall see soon!   I am so grateful to have friend that you can call the day before she’s needed and be like “Yo… Can you come to my studio and model a dress for me?” Of course we played around with more than the dress and I am so glad we did. Look at how STUNNING she is! <3 Thank you sweet friend and momma, for modeling for me and allowing me to be your maternity and newborn photographer. I can’t wait to meet baby H. You are going to be a wonderful mother!!

Engagement

Jordan + Chelsey | Kansas City Sunset Engagement Session

I had so much fun with Jordan and Chelsey, running around Kansas City together, chasing the sun! I loved Chelsey’s idea of using the River Market area in KC because it’s a symbolic to their relationship!

These two are something special and dear friends to Billy and I.  Billy has known Jordan since before I met him so they go way back! He’s a wonderful, sweet & caring human and so deserving of someone like Chelsey. I first met her during a double date that our guys took us on.  It did not take long for her and I to become friends and I knew pretty quickly that she would be the one for Jordan.  It was clear that their bond was special and it’s been so sweet watching them fall in love with one another. Over the last few years, I have built such a strong friendship with her. She is beautiful, kind and has a genuine heart and soul. Our humor is right on track with one another and we have lots of great memories together. Thank you for choosing me to take your engagement photos. I love your gallery so much and I look forward to celebrating with you two on your special day! Congrats on your engagement and cheers to LOVE!

Fun Summer Session | Lees Summit Family Photographer

When a family tells me they’ve never had professional pictures done, I am pretty humbled and excited to be the photographer. We’ve been trying to plan this session since February (in studio) but schedules and weather has postponed us more times than I can count! I’m really glad I was finally able to capture this adorable family. Mama did a great job planning out their outfits! Livy is such a sweet girl. She is full of personality, questions and imagination. Thank you for choosing me to be your Lees Summit Family Photographer.

Beautiful Fall Family Session | Lees Summit Family Photographer

I am in LOVEEE with this gallery. This family recently moved from San Francisco and hired me for their Fall family session. It’s always so exciting to meet newly located clients. Mom did a wonderful job on their outfits. They are all just stunning. Color coordinating for a family of 6 can be hard but she nailed it. This session was full of cuddles, giggles and candy bribes! I am so grateful to have met such a sweet little family. Thank you for choosing our studio to be your Lees Summit Lifestyle Family Photographer.

In-Home Lifesytle Newborn Session | Lees Summit Baby Photographer

In-home lifestyle newborn sessions have been my jam this year! They are a nice change of pace and much different from a posed studio newborn session. I really enjoy them and being creative in the client’s home. These captures are some of my favorite from the session. Big sisters are so proud. Mom’s neutral outfit choices were the perfect touch and everyone looks so nice. Thank you for choosing our studio to be your Lee’s Summit lifestyle newborn photographer.

Beautiful Fall Family Session | Lees Summit Family Photographer

This sweet family travels from Sedalia to see me! I absolutely love to see them each year. The girls are adorable and full of the biggest belly laughs. I am loving the outfits that mom put together, especially that corduroy dress that Hadley has on. We had a lot of fun during our session. It wasn’t exactly Fall weather… a bit warm. Seems typical for the midwest. Lol. Fall sessions have been in full swing for a bit but I’m just now getting around to blogging this session. I’m slowing catching up! Thank you for allowing me to be your lees summit family photographer.

Adorable Summer Family Session | Lees Summit Lifestyle Family Photographer

These two little girls just bring me so much happiness! They are both full of smiles and giggles! Mom did a great job choosing their Summer outfits. Elliott turned one so we celebrated with a family session at the park! Here are some of my favorites from their session. For being Summer, we actually had some pleasurable temps! Happy first birthday to you Elliott!

Baby Boy Lincoln | Lees Summit Newborn Photographer

I love Lincoln’s gallery! He did so good for his session. I also got to work with this adorable couple for their maternity photos and they full of love and laughter. It really makes my heart soooo happy to see new parents fall in love with their baby. The blanket and book mom brought was a nice touch for Lincoln’s newborn session. I love how it turned out, especially with this bed! It’s new and I’m a bit obsessed with it! Here are some favorites from his newborn photography session.

Beautiful In-Home Twin Photo Session | Lees Summit Family Photographer

Look at these girls!! I can’t believe how much they have grown!!! How do we tell them apart you ask? Well… the toenail polish color of course! LOL. Lottie and Evie are just precious and all of momma’s fairytale dreams have come true! We did this session at grandma’s house and it was nothing short of stunning. I walked into their home and was super giddy!  I instantly had a lot of visions and the girls sure did make me work hard to capture those visions! haha. It’s a good thing they are so cute. And those lashes??? I’m so jealous! Women pay big $$ for lashes like theirs! I really loved all of their outfits but the Tivol Baby onesies were my favorite!
Anyway, here are some shares from their 6 month photo session. I am so excited to watch this family grow and I couldn’t be more honored to be their Lee’s Summit family photographer!

Sunset Summer Family Session | Kansas City Photographer

OHHH… MMMM… GEEEE….. I’m swooning over this entire session. The captures, the outfits, the setting, the LIGHT… I am in love with ALL OF IT! This family has been so loyal to me and they are just so dang fun. It’s always a party when we have our session together and Charlotte is my little bestie. Also, golden hour is my JAMMMM! So glad Charlotte could hang late lol!

These outfits are perfection! Allie used my new stylizing tool that I recently began using! It’s called Style & Select and I’m super excited to be using this awesome feature that will help all of my families choose the perfect outfits! Picking out the right clothing can be so stressful and I want to make this aspect of your family session easier! So if you are booked this Fall, be ready to receive this link from me with a private access code!  I just started using the membership and this family was my trial run!

Building a bond and connection with a family is what I aim for, from the first time I meet new clients. It truly makes a huge difference in the kind of connection I have for future sessions with the same family. The kids always look forward to seeing me and the family looks forward to the session. I can’t really stress enough, the importance of trying to stick with your family photographer long term. I’m so grateful that I have this relationship with so many families and I am continuing to build these bonds as my business continues to grow.

This year more than ever, I feel so blessed to be in business. So many businesses have suffered from Covid-19 shutdowns and I am beyond grateful that mine has not. It’s because of families like this one, who have helped to keep my doors open and have faith in my continued growth as a business woman and family photographer. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Now here are a few (haha several) shares of the Lawrence Family! Charlotte always steals my heart and she told me at this session- ” I wanna be a photographer like Ms. Awwissaaa.” And I cry in 3… 2… 1…. LOL. Love you guys!

Lifestyle Family Photographer | Lees Summit Park

I can not express enough, that I just ADOREEEEE Summer family sessions. The vivd sunlight and lush greenery… There is just nothing that compares. The temps are a bit steamy, however the sessions have been so worth it! I have met lots of new families this Summer as well. And for this I am grateful. Making new connections with new families makes my job so fulfilling. Most of my families return year after year and I continue to build trust and solid relationships with my families and the kids. It truly helps to have this with all of my families and really makes a difference in how the sessions go. I like when the kids look forward to seeing me and remembering that Ms. Aly has a butterfly in her camera! Shhhh, this is top secret! 🙂 Anyway, here are some favs from another Summer family session, shot right in lees summit.

Lees Summit Baby Photographer | Sweet Girl Neutral

I am so in love with this baby girl’s session. Mom wanted lots of white and neutral colors and it truly was the perfect fit for her! She looks so precious and perfect. She slept so peacefully during her session and I was WAYYYY excited to have a girl because we’ve had soooo many boys at the studio.

Thank you for choosing us as your Lee’s Summit baby photographer.

Kansas City Newborn Photographer | Little Baby Boy Bear

This sweet little peanut gave me lots of grins during his session! Here are some of my favorites. I love the bear hat and little teddy that mom brought along. It was so cute! It’s definitely been the season of baby boys lately! I haven’t had many baby girls! Being a boy mom myself, I’m such a sucker for baby boys so I don’t mind when we have a boy streak at the studio.

Milestone Session | Lee’s Summit Baby Photographer

Sweet Benjamin was supposed to see me in March for his newborn photos. I was devastated to find out that I was not aloud to take his pictures during our Covid Lockdown, aka shelter in place. It broke my heart and I know mom’s was broken too. I felt helpless. I am so very grateful to be able to finally work with this sweet family again. Who says you can’t pose a 3 month old? 🙂 Benjamin fell asleep during the end of the session and it really worked out perfectly! Mom and I tried to put this chub inside a prop bed but Benji objected lol! It’s okay, I was still able to get some really adorable captures for them! I am excited to work with this family for the next 9 months because momma booked all of Benjamin’s milestone sessions with me! I look forward to seeing this sweet boy grow! Thank you guys for trusting in me to work with your family and being patient as we navigate through 2020.

Summer Family Photo Session | Lee’s Summit Missouri

I am in LOVEEE with this entire gallery so of course I have to blog it! This adorable family braved the heat with me! It actually ended up being a really pretty evening and the sunlight was just gorgeous. I love the color choices and their playfulness as a family really warmed my heart. Summer family sessions are my absolute favorite. The light is always so stunning, families are always sporting a sun kissed tan. So much laughter and happiness. Hope everyone is having a fun start to their Summer!
