This past Saturday session was a warm one at James A Reed Wildlife Area in Lee’s Summit, with the Gaines Family. Little Austin was a trooper throughout the entire thing! I had the honor of photographing Mark and Sami’s engagement and wedding a couple of years ago, and I was so happy when they contacted me for this session. I was also excited to meet their adorable baby girl Austin. They are just the cutest family! I am so excited to see them growing as a couple and as a family it’s my favorite part of being a photographer! Little miss Austin has some beautiful eye lashes, and she made some pretty amazing expressions for me during the session. She was definitely a bundle of personality. She wasn’t sure how she felt about kisses, but was happy just sitting and seeing what she could see.This is my favorite expression of the day. Not sure what it means, I like her scrunchy face.It wasn’t hard to catch the love and joy in their images during the session, it is so natural for them! I know that this family cherishes every moment they have together, and I feel so honored that they let me into those moments.Mark and Sami are such fun people, and I am so glad that they have so much fun with their little one!This tall wheat grass is just as tall as little Austin, if not a bit taller. I saw it during my spot scouting before our session and I knew we were gonna get some good stuff. Turned out exactly how I pictured. She just looks so perfect standing there! She has such a serious, yet non-serious, expression sometimes and I totally love it! I find it so amazing how much personality kids have. She was not sure if she wanted to stand, and it’s the only sad face I got the whole session. I’m not complaining by any means, but I do really love how cute kids sad faces are at this age. She is such a little explorer! She was totally in her element being sat to explore or in this case free to roam. I couldn’t believe how many teeth she has at ten months, 4 showing, and 2 working their way out.
I leave my sessions feeling completely blessed and honored that I get to be a part of such great families lives! I can’t wait to share in their next big moments with them and capture their new characteristics as they grow, as individuals and as a family.
I would love to capture your family’s beautiful life with my camera. If you are interested in a session or just want to find out more information please check out my site, and feel free to contact me using the form below.
