Happy Mother’s Day!!!

It’s hard sometimes to know what to say to Mothers on Mother’s Day. Both your own as well as those you see daily. But I hate to break it to you, everyone deserves an awesome mother’s day whether you are an aunt, a grandmother, a mother, a animal-mom, a mom of babies in heaven, etc. A mom is someone who takes care of someone and loves someone. You are a mother forever…

So enjoy this wonderful amazing beautiful day! And celebrate it if you want or celebrate the beautiful day!

To help celebrate this gorgeous day, here are some mothers from some recent sessions… mother's day, newborn, all mothers, grandmother, stepmom mother's day, newborn, all mothers, grandmother, stepmom mother's day, newborn, all mothers, grandmother, stepmom mother's day, newborn, all mothers, grandmother, stepmom

Lost Hill Park | Thorne Family

Family portraits are definitely something that is needed in your life. Other than some family photos at my wedding and my brother’s wedding, my family has not had the chance to take family portraits together. It is hard when you are split up around Missouri let alone if your family is even further.

This lovely family let me take some pictures of them this past fall. It was such a beautiful day! Eliza did amazing… and Amaya tried her best! Even grumpy smiles are adorable when families look back at the amazingness that is them. Ben’s mother was even able to join in some pictures.

Lost Hill Park Maternity -Layla


I absolutely love repeat clients. The ones who love you no matter where you are in your photography career. This lovely lady Layla is one of those people. I met her when we were EMTs for Mercy in Lebanon. (It’s hard to believe she has a baby now. Yes, I’m that far behind on blog posts!) I love watching her family grow! James (her hubby), Layla and I decided to meet where we did their engagement pictures almost a year ago to shoot her maternity session centered around Where the Wild Things Are…

Lost Hill Park is one of my favorite locations because it’s diversity! There is tons of field space, an old falling down structure, and a little trail down to a stream. Someone told me there are even caves around the area as well.
