February Adventures | Wichita Documentary Photography

So the month has come to an end and I realized that it has been a while since I posted here. I wanted to share some of our recent adventures with you. These are also all great ideas for Lifestyle sessions if you are drawing a blank while thinking of how to document your family with me. I hope you enjoy them!

A Day in the Life

We spent the morning documenting just being us while at my mom’s last week. Sometimes children can be so much more at ease when they are in THEIR spaces and the images come out beautifully!


Baking Fun

The other day we experimented with baking some gluten/dairy free muffins, the littles had the BEST time baking and I fell in love with all of the details that can be caught in this activity. I’m sure you will agree…

New Puppy

My sister recently got a new puppy and she is just the sweetest! The littles and I went to meet her last week and I just had to document the cuteness overload! Check out the images from our day:

Library Time for the Win!

I am a bit ashamed to say that we have never been to our local library. We go to Andover Central Park quite frequently and every time I go I think “oh yeah, we really need to go to our library sometime,” but have you ever tried convincing a two and four year old that they should forego a park for the library?! Well, we decided to go this week and it may now be my new favorite place for photos. The light is beautiful and the leading lines that you get from book shelves is quite amazing! I’m sure you will agree that these photos are pretty adorable!


In Home Studio

Fearful of Lifestyle shoots because you are afraid that you might not get the portrait style photos that you desire for your walls? Think again, I LOVE chasing light in other homes to find the perfect way to create studio style portraits. This is one of those things that makes photography fun for me, no matter where I go I am challenged with finding the light that works best for my subjects and my clients homes. These photos were created in my living room because the cutest nine year old ever wanted to be a model! Check out my little models below…

P & M Pumpkin Ranch | Wichita Documentary Photography

I have lived in the Wichita area for all of my life and am SHOCKED that I am only just now discovering P & M Pumpkin Ranch! My sister, Nana, the cousins, the littles and I all ventured out the Sunday before last to experience this pumpkin patch in the tiny town of Moundridge. What a gem of a place in the middle of Kansas!! From the pig races to the bouncy pads to the corn maze to the numerous slides and much, much more; there is no lack of entertainment for kids of all ages! We left about 3 hours after we arrived after hours of playing, losing one child for a short time (thank you for the heart attack, Liam) and with extremely beautiful pumpkins in tow. We were all exhausted and SUPER cranky but it was SO worth it for the memories made and watching the joy on the kiddo’s faces.

My sister and I decided that it would have to be a yearly event from here on out. If you are in the Wichita area I am sure that you too will feel like the hour-ish drive is worth it for the beauty of this property along with the fun that will be had by all-children and adults alike! Take a look at the pictures from our day and try to tell me that you you’re not jealous! 🙂
