Kauffman Gardens | Kansas City Area Child Photographer

I have seen several different photos of Kauffman Gardens, but had never visited. The garden area always looks so beautiful and peaceful. So when I had a client asking for some different ideas for their upcoming photo session, it was one of the locations that I had mentioned to her. When she seemed interested in having her family session there, that was all the motivation I needed to load my family up in the minivan and take a quick trip there to check it out. I think I was the only one in my family excited about the outing. šŸ™‚ While I did end up with several silly photos, I actually ended up with several photos from there that I really like. Now I just have to figure out which ones I want to print big and hang up on my walls.

Rathbun Lake

We had checked out Honey Creek Resort State Park this past winter while attending their waterpark with some friends. We thought it looked like a nice area with a few feet of snow on the ground, so we went back this summer to camp. It was an unseasonably cool Memorial Day weekend, but we had …

The Grand Tetons

Just wanted to share a photo from our summer vacation – A little story behind the photo – we had left West Yellowstone bright and early that morning in hopes of not having to deal with too much stop and go traveling. The great part about this? We made it through Yellowstone before most of …

Tuesday Night

Late Tuesday afternoon, strong thunderstorms moved through here.  While I don't really enjoy the wind and pounding rain that comes with the thunderstorms, I do enjoy watching the sun set through all of the clouds.  In one direction, the sky was so pink! I wish I had had a wider lens though – we could …

Their favorite places to claim seem to our playset and a small tree that we have near there.If they kids are outside, they usually leave them alone.

The birds vs. Speedy

A few nights ago I heard some baby birds. After investigating, I found them in a nearby tree and took some photos – Today while I was outside, I decided to check out the nest again, only this time I had a helper. The birds were not happy about either of us being close to …

Red Barn Farm

We went to Weston Red Barn Farm this spring for a preschool field trip. I was very impressed with the farmers (guides) and their ability to keep preschool aged kids (and the adults) interested for over an hour. We saw so many baby animals and everything was finally starting to look like Spring.   These …

A bee, a butterfly and some flowers…

I have some flowers in my landscaping that always attract bees and butterflies. The bees could care less about me standing there taking photos, however, the butterflies almost always fly off. Today I was lucky to catch this butterfly. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to capture the other butterfly that hangs around here next time.
