I'm just in awe of this beautiful couple... Jake and Angela met me at the absolutely stunning Loose Park here in Kansas City for an afternoon engagement session. These two are so in love and had no problem showing that in front of the camera. They brought their fur-babies, Stella and Sophie near the end for some much needed family time. Congratulations on your engagement Jake and Angela!

Throw-back Thursday... LOL! Okay - so this session hadn't made the blog until recently. Why? This was actually a shoot for a magazine spread! ProfitBuilder Magazine, which is an animal health product publication produced by Durvet, Inc, had me shoot the soon-to-be engaged couple Kassie and Raleigh with their beautiful horses, Boy and Sierra. The publication was published summer of 2016! This shoot was a little tricky because the session took place during the late morning hours, we had ZERO cloud coverage, and it was in the summer! We had to battle some hard light, dense shade with no in-between... but overall the shoot ended up being pretty cool! Our equine friends cooperated wonderfully and at the very end we had some play time with the cutest little puppy you ever did see, Cowboy! Not a bad work day, if I do say so myself.

This is a very special post about two very special people. I have known Chelsea for over 20 years now. We grew up down the street from one another and became BFFs 4-EVA in elementary school. I remember our walks through the neighborhood like it was yesterday. We would have long 'serious" life discussions and dish on our crushes, celebrity (Devon Sawa) or local (it will always remain top secret). Our taste in boys changed over the years, but there was always a few important things that always stayed the same. We wanted them to be kind and funny, honorable and intelligent, and family must be a top priority to them. For Chelsea the love of football was a huge must, for me not as much. Haha!
Well a few weeks ago I had the honor of taking engagement photos of her and the man who meets all of our childhood 'future husband requirements'... and then some. :) I'm so happy for these two, they are truly blessed to have found each other.
Congratulations Brian and Chelsea! I love you both with all my heart!
