Maris & Maddie had a beautiful Shawnee Mission Park session with me in the Spring. The two of them hadn’t ever had professional photos taken of the two of them, but you wouldn’t have been able to tell based on how natural they were the entire session! They are also such good company and I had some of the friendliest conversations having only met for the first time this day!
They are also so obviously in love, and checked in with one another during their session. We started under the trees while walking the path right at sunset! It had rained earlier in the day but had cleared up just in time for our session! Our night ended at the water walking along one of the piers that had an amazing view of the lake. It was overcast skies but I truly love that lighting because it allows me the flexibility to shoot anywhere in the park.
Thank you so much Maria & Maddie for being such great company for your Shawnee Mission park session! You two are truly two of the sweetest humans!
Jamaica and Aidan booked a session with me during my Spring minis! I hosted the sessions at Shawnee Mission Park! This afternoon was gorgeous, it felt like the sun was somehow extra glow during golden hour. And we couldn’t get enough!
Aidan and Jamaica fit together like puzzle pieces. In the short session I had with them, their love was obvious for one another. You wouldn’t question anything spending 10 minutes with them! This made it so easy to let their love do the work! I gave them fun prompts so they were always moving around and being playful! I love the images we captured!
I found out a month after these Spring minis, Aidan proposed to Jamaica in Amsterdam! She obviously said yes and now they are busy doing all the fun wedding planning! Congrats to you both! This afternoon was a blast and I feel so lucky to have met you both!
Shawnee Mission Park was the perfect location for Jordyn and Austin’s couples photos. The tall grass and the beautiful lake gave us alllllllll the natural summer vibes we could want for their laid-back photoshoot.
Jordyn and Austin are used to taking iphone photos but they wanted to have a professional photo session to remember such a transitional time in their lives. They both have finished up school are getting ready for some big changes; Jordyn is about to start her new job here in Kansas City and in just a few weeks Austin will be moving to Omaha to train for his new job. Jordyn and Austin have known each other since middle school and have been together for three and a half years. This will be their first time being states away. They’ll miss being able to get dressed up and try out new restaurants together for date nights but they know it’ll be all the more meaningful when their together again.
Jordyn and Austin’s Shawnee Mission Park couples photos stunningly documented their love; the way Austin looks at Jordyn when she smiles, or the way Jordyn gently holds Austin’s hand. Subtle ways they express their love for each other.
The key to capturing those intimate and candid moments between you and your partner is to try to forget the camera even exists. Find a photographer that you trust to guide you through poses and ideas that help make you feel comfortable. When you’re relaxed during a photoshoot you’re able to be more carefree. The natural chemistry between you and your partner will shine through and your photographer will be able to capture it all.
