John & Dana – Minimalist Baker – Kansas City, MO

A couple months ago I was asked to photograph John and Dana of Minimalist Baker for their interview at SouthernWeddings.com. It was SUCH an honor to not only be on Southern Weddings but to be invited into Dana and John’s home and capture their adorable selves. Dana is rocking the food blog world over at Minimalist Baker. Go and check out her recipes HERE. And if you want to see their interview with Southern Weddings, you can find that HERE.

This woman actually knelt down and posed. Unfortunately I only got her fleeing the scene. Untitled-21 Untitled-23 Untitled-24 Untitled-25

Eloise . Portraits . Locust Grove . Louisville, Ky

This is Eloise. She blew my socks off. By looking at these photographs, you would think I told her how to pose, smile, or laugh…but no, that all comes naturally to her. She was amazing. I knew it was going to be fun when we started things off with a handstand.

Adam & Erin . Just Love . Downtown Kansas City, MO

I had the privilege of shooting my brother and sister-in-law while they came to town last weekend. They are some of the sweetest and goofiest people around and I’m so glad I married into being their family. We laughed the whole way through and it didn’t hurt that my husband was behind me cracking jokes and goofing off with his brother. Ok, maybe it hurt a little, but they were having fun, so I can’t complain ;)
