We have had great success from previous mini sessions and plan to have another on November 12th & 13th!

They are only $65 and you will get 25 minutes of fun family time in front of the camera at a gorgeous Wichita park.  A digital download of up to 15 of the best images where you can order prints through my professional photo lab or locally is also included in the price.  If you want an additional 10 images it’s only another $20!

Generally families of 10 people or less work great for this type of shoot.  Larger families may need two sessions as it takes longer to pose.  Once you signup via the link below you will be given instructions on where to meet at.  Feel free to bring any props that have family meaning.  Or you can do a theme, such as a picnic, etc.

 

Thanks and look forward to seeing everyone!

Family is so important. Getting photos taken every year is also important.
I didn’t quite understand this 7-8 years ago until I started having kids of my own. Now every year I look forward to going to a park, having some fun, and getting our photos taken.
Growing up as a child, my parents didnt do this. I feel like I missed out a bit. It would have been a great snapshot of my family at that moment in time.
Sometimes photos speak loudly, especially years later as we all grow older or grow up.

These are photos I took of a wonderful family last year at a park in Wichita, Kansas. Such a lovely family.

Where are you getting your family photos taken? Now is the time =)

Let me know in the comments below.

I’m so happy for Rachel and Anthony.  They are not only a lovely couple, but have hearts of gold.

The wedding party was also very gracious, and even though the ladies were a bit camera shy, we captured some amazing moments.

The wedding and ceremony was at the Petroleum Club in Downtown Wichita, Kansas.

These are some of my favorites from their big day.  Congrats you two!

The family and I packed our bags and headed to KC again for another fabulous wedding in Lees Summit.

The location is a historical mansion called Longview Mansion.  I love old locations like this, the walls just breath life.

There is just something about them that add flavor to weddings, and this one is no different.

Here are just a few photos and plan to update more soon.

A beautiful photograph is one of the best ways to remember an important event.  Sun flare’s streaking through the frame, as a couple is smiling proudly having just said their vows.   I get a sense of pride and accomplishment looking through the finished photos.  It’s what I love to do.

So after taking thousands of RAW photos at a wedding, so I must choose the best of the best, I can’t edit them all.  But how do I pick the photos?  We may have 50 shots of a couple looking fabulous in one scene near a water fountain.  Some are smiling, some serious, some goofy.  I like them all!  I may pick 10 of the best I like, but I always wonder about the other 40.  I can’t pick them all, because there are thousands more and it would take weeks to months to spend the time I want on each photo.

So that’s why I let the couple pick the photos they want to have. The Bride may want a completely different 10 out of 50 than I do for different reasons and I would never have known.  Most other photographers chose the photos for their clients, so most people never know what photos didn’t make the cut.  The bride and groom can pick just the right amount of happy, serious and goofy.  After easily clicking on the photos they want from the comfort of their home, I get an email letting me know they are finished.  I will add in some of my favorites, then take the RAW photos and go to work adding my artistic blends to each photograph, fit to be printed and hung on a wall for all their friends, family and future children can share at an amazing moment in time.

When I photograph a wedding, its something not to be taken lightly. I prepare rigorously. I have professional camera gear, then I have backup professional camera gear to go along my lighting equipment. I make sure all my batteries are charged, my memory cards are formatted fresh, and that all my lenses are clean.
I talk with the couple, get to know them. I want to find out what they want from their wedding and deliver the best I can. We work together to find the most opportune times during the big day to get the memories captured perfectly. I mentally prepare on wedding day, as I lace up my black shoes and slide my slacks on. Then I run to the nearest Chipotle and enjoy the best fast casual Mexican food known to man. I listen to loud music as I drive over to the venue, and get excited for what the day will bring. I am a wedding photographer living in Wichita, Kansas.
