Bert & Lauren's North Kansas City Spring Wedding

There is always something so incredible and honoring in capturing someones wedding day. Documenting the moments when a couple sees their partner as a husband or a wife and vows to be real and together for the rest of their lives. It romantic yes but also scary and exciting. Being a photographer gives me so much joy and responsibility to tell the story of their day with detail, care and authenticity.

For Bert and Lauren it was simply incredible to capture their true connection with each other. They met me that morning at a park for their couples portraits. There was not a single shot I could take that kept them from smiling. There was only true happiness when they were together thinking about the fact that they were actually marrying each other! Those are the kinds of couples and moments I love capturing. They were so in love and so excited for their big adventure together to begin!

*Thanks to my awesome Second shoot Rebecca with Rebecca Clair Photography*

Paul O. : Lifestyle Newborn Session

I was there the moment this little guy came into the world. Immediately the room filled with joy and love because this little guy was finally here. A couple weeks after he made his arrival I got to chill with him again.  Those first couple weeks at home are hard and beautiful. I love being able to photograph this precious time in the parenting process. Yes it feels it may never end but it will and you will wonder where the time went! Cheers to this new family and this adroable little boy!

Kristin & Travis : Lee's Summit, MO Engagement

Sometimes you get out shooting with a couple unsure of how it will turn out but the rush of relaxation comes over you as soon as you realize how chill and funny the couple is. Kristin and Travis are so much fun to interact with, they have been together for such a good chunk of time you can just feel the best friendship they share. We discovered some crazy beautiful spots on our lakeside adventure and the cloudy day just added to the richness of color. So excited for these two as they continue on their sweet journey as a couple.

Emilia D. : Lifestyle Newborn Session

I just adore this family for so many reasons! not only are they relaxed and adorable, they have a way of connecting with each other that is just beyond words. Their connection as a couple has only grown since they welcomed their new little girl into the world. She is the sweetest little thing and so lucky to be apart of such a comfy and happy home. It was such a joy getting to capture not only their maternity photos together awaiting their new arrival but also getting to see how they have grown in welcoming this little girl into their lives and opened their hearts leaps and bounds to become parents. They reflect only happiness and contentment throughout this session and in these moments I am overcome by how lucky I am to get to enter people's lives and homes and capture these new seasons of a family.  This is just the first chapter of such a warm and wonderful story for this little family. Congratulations for these two and their gorgeous little daughter.

G & C : Overland Park Birth Story

Every birth is different and beautiful in its own way. From the personalities, time of day, labor itself and all the different pieces of the puzzle that come together in bringing a life into the world. My favorite part is the relationship of the couple. I feel a bit like an anthropologist discovering the nature of a relationship as it unfolds. I can’t imagine what runs through a husbands mind watching his wife go through the pain, fear, excitement and then just pain all over again. Some husbands beg for others who know more to run in and aid while others literally never sit down because they want to be as uncomfortable as possible in supplication. Their helplessness is in so many ways a beautiful countercultural thing to capture. They can’t do anything but submit to the fact they have played a role in bringing this pain and that soon they will become a father.

For this birth it was the latter, he was begging to be with his wife at all times. Most of the time G wanted to forego the stool he could sit on just to stand at her side and be anything she needed. They were a force together and he knew the value of being her solid support throughout the entire day. 

Watching the mother is of course the greatest piece of the puzzle. The endurance and bodily bravery is beyond anything else in the world. Like an Olympic runner or mountaineer climbing Everest. A mother is perseverant in pain and fear. It’s a beautiful and long endeavor that’s met with a lifetime of purpose. Your motherhood is on the end of this painful tunnel and you are fighting with every breath and contraction for it. 

C was incredible, fierce and ready to be that mother. There were moments of fear but she handled them with a spirit of a fierce mother lion bringing new life into the world.

After several hours of natural contractions C was left at a plateau of 9cm. She wanted so desperately to push through to the end but after 5 hours sitting right at 9 she decided to try the epidural. From their her heart rate sky rocketed and while the room stayed calm there were specks of fear in everyone’s eyes. But C took these moments in stride holding one hand to the oxygen mask and other in G’s. She pushed her little boy into the world.

They had waited to find out the gender so the resounding joy of “it’s a boy, it’s really boy” coming from G was all anyone could here for those first few seconds. He was so overcome he almost said no to cutting the cord. When their little one was finally placed on C’s chest it was straight waterworks all around. Pure joy, adrenaline and emotion flooded the whole room as C and G kept saying, “We love you, we’re so happy to meet you.”
