{Gorgeous Brown Eyes} Olathe Family Photographer

Finally, I can post these.  I wanted Holly to be able to see these portraits before anyone else.  Well she came over today and looked through all her images.  It was so fun to watch her flip through the portraits of her gorgeous kids!  I get goose bumps, I tell ya'.  Are you ready for some gorgeous brown-eyes?  Blue eyes get all the fame sometimes, but brown eyes are like deep, dark pools of silky smoothness.  And they reflect everything.

Enjoy!  I know I did.  I love capturing love and connection like this.  Such a treat.  Thanks Holly and Steve!!!!

{Kansas in the Fall} Olathe Family Photographer

This was the most relaxing session.  This session just proved again how custom photography can be fun and enjoyable.  So different from the photo sessions that I experienced in my first few years of being a mom.  You know, the box-store photo sessions crammed with people waiting for their turn?  Those tension-filled sessions are what drove me to custom photography.

For this session we drove a little over an hour West to meet up with my friend and fellow photographer, Terra.  Rural Kansas is just beautiful this time of year.  The drive was peaceful and beautiful and the session location was perfect.  Thanks for a great evening Terra!

{My friend Holly} Olathe Family Photographer

Sappy sneak peak!  I'm editing this session and decided to blog one real quick.  I love this portrait.  Big puffy heart kind of love it.  I know, you are going to say "But everyone isn't looking!"  Then I will tell you that you are missing the big picture and that maybe it's because you don't know my friend Holly.

I think she is stunning.  Simply beautiful.  She's that friend that is always smiling and has this peace.  No matter what conversations are going on around her and regardless of what the kids are doing, she's going to flash you a smile.  She has this huge heart for God and friends and family and everyone else.  She introduces you to new people and makes you fall in love with them.  She opens her home to people and convinces them to bring their dogs and stay a while, sometimes a long while.  And she has this great smile she has.  Love you Holly!  More to come very soon.
