When I look at these boys, I instantly flash-back to when they both were BABIES…which makes it even crazier that they are energetic kids who LOVE to wrestle these days!  How can that much time have passed!?  But it’s bittersweet, because I also just love to see them grow every year.  They are insanely awesome, and it’s an honor to document their annual portraits… 🙂

When you can incorporate a little bit of “tag” into your session, it’s a guarantee that the smiles will be BIG.  Emory has grown up SO MUCH since I saw her last…I can still picture that shy little 9-month old.  They were willing to hike around some serious MUD that wasn’t supposed to be at this spot…but the locations beyond are worth it!  Thank you all for trusting me, and hearing “just one more spot” more times than I should have said it… 🙂

This family brought the SASS downtown for their annual photo session — and I love how the tulle/fur/sparkles just happen to click with the Kansas City Club not far from where we met up!  They were up for anywhere, and I think we snagged some pretty special images.  Baron is always making crazy faces, so I was thrilled to see a few genuine smiles in there… 🙂

My annual session with this family is something that I truly look forward to.  It’s a bit of chaos, a lot of silliness, and mostly a family who really loves each other.  That’s why it’s so fun for ME!  They laugh, Mom and Dad roll their eyes, but when you ask them to get together I see zero hesitation.  Beth had this idea to head downtown near the library, and we found all sorts of amazing things in the area to work with.  Now if only we could have had the whole family ride those Bird scooters… 🙂

Since I was on Maternity Leave for Natalie’s 4-month session, I was EXTRA excited to see everyone for the 8-month!  We’ve done so many milestone images at this specific tree, it’s incredibly special.  From the wedding day, to their second child sitting below it!  Natalie was a little over her photos by the end (which is totally normal) so I had to snag the crying-shot.  I mean, it’s sad but so darn adorable!  Until one year… 🙂
