Two types of clients can make me feel so incredibly honored:
1. Those who come from out of town to Kansas city so I can document their family.
2. Fellow photographers.
So you can imagine how I feel that the K family hired me because they meet BOTH above criteria! Justin is a photographer himself in Columbia, Missouri.
He and Piper had a baby girl a year ago. Her gender was a complete surprise, though Justin and Piper both thought she’d be a boy. They referred to her as Hawk while in womb. When she was born, they followed a naming tradition in Piper’s family of naming based on something natural, so they opted for a name already in the family: Lane. They claim she is a super laid back and calm, and after spending two hours with them, I totally agree. She is downright calming compared to my high-energy toddler! But this could all change shortly once Lane starts walking. Lucky for me, she wasn’t quite mobile on her feet yet, which made for a much easier session. Since Justin is a photographer, they already have tons of photos of Lane alone. But not so much any of just Justin and her or the family as a whole. So that was my goal… with a few others added in. And huge thank you to Justin’s sister Sara for accompanying us and helping get Lane’s attention!!!!
So here goes it, K family. I hope you love and cherish these images…as evidence of the bittersweet milestone they commemorate. 😉 And let me once again point out how much I love the color palette!! 😉
