portrait of a dancer – kansas city headshots

last month i received a call to photograph a dancer. this talented young man needed a new headshot and first arabesque photo for an upcoming audition with cincinnati ballet  and i knew this was something i wanted to shoot.

meet john michael, a high school junior and long-time football player turned dancer. he’s got such a great look that i would imagine, if he wanted to, he could add model to that list of talents as well.

john michael said that his athletic background certainly came in handy when he ventured in to dance four years ago but that it didn’t come easy. i can’t even begin to comprehend the discipline and strength required for ballet. which is why i’m just a runner. ha!

what john michael needed for this audition was something clean and classic, but now that i’ve had a taste of photographing a dancer i’m dying to experiment with something a little different. hopefully i’ll get the chance to shoot his senior portraits next year and we can collaborate on something a little more outside the box.

oh! and about that audition…apparently he nailed it because he was offered a full scholarship for a 5 week summer intensive at cincinnati ballet.

way to go, john michael! your future is bright. so very, very bright.

brock and naya – a hocus focus mini session

mini sessions with these kiddos are always beyond amazing! their mama never ceases to amaze me with her killer style and the kids…well, they’re a photographer’s dream. always so cooperative and truly the sweetest.

i love how over the top this hat is! and would you believe their mama made it? she’s super stylish and she’s super talented. she could write a book on what to wear for family photos. i think i may have her dress my crew for our next family portrait session!

both heidi and i are crazy about animal print so you know we couldn’t pass up the zebra chair.

it’s always great to hang with you and the kids, heidi! i just love collaborating with you and i can’t wait to see what you come up with next time!

the peck family – hocus focus mini sessions

i love love love when clients refer their friends to me and this adorable family was no exception. the moment they walked in the door of the studio i knew we would have a blast! their girls are as just sweet and fun as they are cute and they knew exactly what to wear for their family portraits. this combination of patterns and colors is so great!

those eyes! man, these girls are gorgeous. i really hope their daddy has a big ol’ shotgun. i have a strong feeling he’s gonna need it.

i love father/daughter and mother/daughter portraits and these are definitely some of my favorites!

thanks for coming to visit and for being such a fun family to have in front of my camera! looking forward to next time.

baby gracy | kansas city newborn photographer

i’ve been photographing brody for a few years now and it’s always fun to have him in front of my camera. he’s such a creative kid. this little cutie pie has an imagination like no other!

last fall he became a big brother. his sister gracy lynn was the perfect addition to this darling little family. 

brody gives the role of big brother a thumbs up! literally.

i just adore this family and am so thankful that they chose me to capture this special time in their lives.

love you guys!
