Greenhouse Senior Session Oh I just love Bayleigh! She is so much fun and has such a contagious smile and laugh. We had her session at Dutch’s Greenhouse in Wichita, KS and it was a stunning location with everything in bloom and so lush and green. There is nothing more beautiful than a gorgeous girl […]

Noah’s Event Venue Summer Wedding I do not know really what to say about this wedding except it was perfect. Of course it was hot outside (typical midwest summer day) but the forecast had predicted Kaylen and Taylor’s wedding day to be 100 degrees but it only reached the low 90’s. So still hot, but not as […]

Wichita Summer Senior Session Alexis was my first senior session of the summer and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter and more fun and gorgeous girl! This session was the perfect start to my summer. We headed to Clifton Square for her senior photos and she blew me away with how amazing she was […]

This College Hill Senior Session is one of my favorite locations in Wichita. I just adore the College Hill area in Wichita, KS. There is such character and charm, just like this beautiful girl! Even though it was mostly cloudy during her session, Adia was shinning so bright! Just look at her smile! Gorgeous! I can’t […]

Senior Pool-less Pool Party July in the Midwest is hot! Not only does the temperature creep over 100 degrees, but the humidity here in Kansas is out of control. I think we all can agree that one of the best ways to beat the heat is to head to the pool. The only problem? Not everyone has […]

Wichita Boathouse Wedding The Wichita Boathouse was the perfect venue for Kristy and Chris’s wedding. June is such a popular and beautiful month for weddings here in Kansas, but this day was a bit on the warm side. I think I heard that it was supposed to feel like 110 degrees and we were in a […]

Beautiful June Wedding in Wichita Kansas Rachel and Drew had the most beautiful wedding at the beginning of June. I was so excited when Rachel told me their wedding would be at the beautiful St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church. This church is the perfect backdrop for a wedding, just wait until you see the photos! […]

Wichita Kansas Summertime Engagement Session It might not be officially summer yet, but I always though that June = summer. If the heat is any indicator than I feel like it already is summer here for sure! So I’m calling it, it’s summer! Alyssa and Jared did not let the heat stop them from being completely […]

Sun kissed Wichita Kansas Engagement Photos Oh my goodness! These Sun kissed Wichita Kansas Engagement Photos are some of my all time favorites! I feel as if I say that at every session, but all my couples are so wonderful that I cannot help but feel this way every single time. Caitlin and Austin were beyond […]

Little Sahara Oklahoma Sand Dunes This session might be my all time favorite, ever! That is saying a lot as I love all of my sessions and the wonderful people I get to meet. This location though just spoke to my soul. The light, pastel colors make my heart sing! I was so glad Cami […]
