Wichita, Kansas Family Portrait Photographers | Urban Christmas Shoot

Nicole and Alysa’s beautiful faces are back in front of our cameras, this time for their 2013 Christmas photos! As Alysa gets older, she is learning how to really work the camera and get us some fun shots. When we asked her to hold her mom’s hand and get some shots walking across a busy downtown street….boom, she got it. And the glitter snow….OH ALL OVER THAT! But in all seriousness, these two are so fun to shoot and make our jobs real easy. Plus, have you seen their outfits? Nicole, adopt me?

Kansas Adventures | Diamond Archery | Katniss Who? Zombies Beware.

“Pull the bow back slowly to your cheekbone, aim slightly below bulls-eye, hold your breath, then quickly release and follow through.” Our instructors at Diamond Archery stood right next to us beginners and showed us the ropes to their sport. I like to think we did pretty good…..or maybe it was beginners luck. Either way, we were learning something new and exciting. Who knew that loading an arrow in a bow, figuring out the tricks behind aiming and the quick swift smooth release of the arrow would feel so….. therapeutic? Maybe it’s the part where the arrow sticks to the bulls-eye and you made it pretty dang close to center. It felt good.

What’s all the purple shirts about you say? Glad you asked! Andrea and I joined a Kansas group of ladies called the Adventurous Babes Society to help with finding adventurous around town and this was our first outing with them. Getting to meet new people can be hard and this was our way to get with like minded ladies that enjoy doing new things. It was a bonus that they were all VERY nice and never treated us like strangers.

But Katniss, seriously, you best watch out for the ladies in purple because our skills may just surpass yours. Ok maybe I’m being completely cocky BUT, us ladies are one step closer to preparing for a zombie apocalypse.

The Inn at Glenstrae Bed & Breakfast

A warm summer sun was setting over the neighborhood, leaving a glow down the quiet streets. The evening’s golden path pointed to a bed and breakfast where a party was about to begin. A welcoming furry friend lead the way around the back to a secret garden. Walking through the gates and under the honeysuckle, all you heard were the crickets chirping their garden sounds, bees buzzing while they sipped their sweet flower nectar and a water fountain trickling it’s way around a wall. Tea lights dangled over the party as they casted their cozy light on the guests below. It was a celebration meant for the whole world to know yet tucked away in a very secret garden.

Thank you to the following vendors that helped make this shoot possible! We had so much fun building this shoot from the ground up and learned a lot along the way. It’s always refreshing to step out of your artistic comfort zone and create something new! To see a behind the scenes video click here
