May Cara Box Exchange

I totally forgot to post this yesterday! Wifessionals hosts a box exchange each month for bloggers. This month you had to send things that had to do with where you live. I sent a box to Maggie at:

Aim at Aims Creations sent me a box full of goodies from Utah! Here’s what I got…

Miss L thought the salt water taffy was for her…I shared a few pieces….


Yay! I love honey for my tea!


She picked up on the fact that I loooove chocolate. This chocolate was SO GOOD.


Thank you from Kansas to Utah!

Chelsea | Wichita Wedding Photographer

Chelsea is the kind of girl that everyone takes a second glance at. She is strikingly gorgeous, kind, and outgoing. Today I am photographing her wedding to her Javier… she calls him Javvy.
I was having some pregnancy complications when these two had their engagement photos taken, but my friend over at Elly Bean Photography captured them beautifully.
I had the privilege of doing a few Bridal portraits of Chelsea. I am timing this to post shortly after their wedding ceremony today. I told you, she's gorgeous...


Check that rock! :)


Congrats to you Chelsea & Javvy today as you say forever, I do. I am honored to capture it through my lens. I can’t wait to post your wedding photos soon.

Wrenley Sneak Peek | Wichita Newborn Photographer

This sweet baby was one of the models I called for last week on Facebook. I recently purchased a new newborn posing beanbag and needed a few shots. I got more than a few because this baby slept for most of her session. She loved to lay on her tummy. How stinkin precious is she?! Here’s just a sneak peek!



More to come of precious Wrenley soon!

Rebecca Sneak Peek | Wichita Maternity Photographer

I grew up in the same church as this beautiful mama and have recently been able to spend more time with her and get to know her sweet spirit. She is soon to be a mama of 3. And..she is stunning. She’s one of those moms who looks all glowy and glamorous throughout pregnancy. No fair. Here’s a sneak peek : )


See? Stunning. Here is her little crew : )


More soon!

Justin + Katie | Wichita Engagement Photographer

I am so excited to photograph Justin & Katie’s wedding this winter. I got to spend a bit with them a few days ago for their engagement session. They are laid back and fun. Here are my favorites from their session.


They met at Mort’s and wanted to grab a few photos to remember…

Weekend Wrapup

This weekend we spent some time over at Mr Manlove’s parents house and I did a little session with the girls. Baby K was not in the mood, so I mainly followed Miss L around and photographed her antics : )


Behind the scenes…. : )


Her first experience with grass.


I take a few extra photoshop liberties with my own kiddos. Generally I keep my photography as natural as possible, but it is fun to play with tools some every so often : )

Miss L’s dress is from Three Giggly Girls.


The wichita humidity makes our hair a little crazy.


And because I know some of you will ask, these were photographed with a Canon 5D Mark II and a 50mm 1.2 lens. Photoshop actions used are from Florabella and Totally Rad Actions

Mothers Day | Bartlett Arboretum

We had the privilege of visiting the beautiful Bartlett Arboretum in Belle Plaine Kansas on Mothers Day. The tulips were up and the lovely Robin Macy & band put on a concert. It was a peaceful and lovely afternoon.


I told you….lovely.

Hope your mothers day was happy and peaceful too.
