I am always prepared to laugh a lot during my sessions with the Theis family and this one was no different!  I rode with them to the trails at the Governors Mansion in Topeka and they happily obliged every time I had them move or stop at a location for photos – including one shot in the middle of a street when we were clear of cars/people for a brief moment.  There was NO shortage of great spots for photos on this perfect fall day and this is one VERY photogenic and happy family.  Allie posed for some gorgeous photos and then mixed it up (as should be done) with other poses, including handstands and meditation! 🙂 Melinda’s color coordination for her families outfits AND her hair were on POINT (that HAD to be acknowledged, I have major curl envy).  The result…Some stunning and FUN family photos! Enjoy!

With no shortage of beautiful fall backgrounds to choose from at Gage Park in Topeka and an extremely photogenic family (even the dogs are photogenic!!!), the Blum’s family session was a wonderful one.  While I was walking around scouting different spots for our shoot, I heard the driver of the train that goes around the park say that the pond area is Topeka’s most photographed spot.  I don’t doubt it, the park was bustling with families and high school seniors out to enjoy the light and fall colors.  I have enjoyed watching Kylie and Alex grow, and they were good sports and obliged me in replicating an iconic piggy back photo from our shoot back in 2012.  🙂

You might remember the Moreno Family from the time photographing their wedding, and adorable Pitbull Nala walking Janice down the aisle, landed me in an article with the Huffington Post!  I’ve photographed them every year since and always look forward to our time together.  We headed out to Clinton Lake for our shoot to enjoy all the fall colors (and inevitably some rain as well)!

I’ve said this to many of my clients the past several weeks, but I am not sure I remember Lawrence EVER having such gorgeous, rich fall colors!  We headed to the backyard of a family friend in West Lawrence for Trent’s senior photo session.  As many senior boys tend to be, Trent was not exactly looking forward to his photo session in the way senior girls often are….however, I reassured him I work fast and would make it as painless as possible (same promise I make a lot of Dad’s this time of year during family sessions). 🙂 We hit it out of the ball park, I absolutely love how they turned out and hope you enjoy them as well!

I’ve been photographing the Buford-Lewis family for a VERY long time (you might remember THIS adorable session when Jonah was a sweet baby). I’ve loved getting to be a part of their story and watch their family grow!  Jonah and Spencer’s energy and adventurous spirits were on full display during our session, which resulted in some of my all time fave “brothers” photos.  You’ll know what I mean when you take a look! 🙂
