As Kansas City prepares for the first snowstorm of the year…actually…of TWO YEARS (ha!)… I thought I’d post photos from a warmer time… or maybe it’s just that I’m that behind.
This sunshiney family might look familiar as Danielle & Andrew’s wedding was my last of 2011. Danielle has always been such a genuine source of kindness and we stay in touch on Facebook. She and Andrew have a little girl named Peighton who is a healthy mix of both of them, both in looks and personality. And she is ornery and sweet and all things adorable. For their session, we took to a rural location. Danielle brought a tea set and an old suitcase. Peighton didn’t have any troubles working those props into the shoot.
Before the shoot, Danielle warned me she thought we wouldn’t get many “good ones.” This is often the fear of parents who have children between the 1 and 3 age. And for good reason as I’ve said before, that age group is the toughest to keep in front of the lens.
But Peighton, though rambunctious and on the go, proved to be one of the easiest toddlers I’ve ever worked with. Probably because she’s part ham. 😉
Enjoy some of my favorite images from this session in the countryside of good ol’ Missouri.
