The Sifford Family | Kansas City, Missouri | Colorado + Missouri Family Photography

I've been so busy taking Fall Family Portraits that I'm now behind on my blogging! That said, it's super fun to look back at these photos of the wonderful families I worked with months ago and get to re-live the fun all over again!

You may or may not know I grew up in the sweet, wholesome state of Missouri, although I've lived in Colorado for almost a decade. I make my way back to the midwest a few times a year to visit family & friends, and to photograph as many of the wonderful people there I can squeeze into each trip!

This past summer during a visit to Kansas City, I had the privilege of photographing the incredibly FUN family of April + Dave. Here are a handful of my favorites from our photo shoot at KC's Loose Park - I think you'll smile just as big as I did when you see little Will's goofy faces! Both boys, Jack + Will, were full of awesome energy and loved having their pictures taken. And of course, I just had to include the family's goldendoodle Abner in as many photos as possible - he was just as happy as the rest of his family since the whole photo shoot felt like a playdate for him!

I'd love to hear from you in the comments after browsing through the below photos, and don't forget to get in touch with me soon to schedule YOUR family portrait session! October is 100% the best month of the year to get your loved ones together for photos, and just in time for your holiday cards!! :)

Caitlin + Byron | Leesburg, Virginia | Colorado and Destination Wedding Photographer


Oh what FUN it was to frolic on this historic Virginian plantation home, classically named the Rust Manor House, as I followed around sweet & sassy Caitlin, today's bride and the center of everyone's attention.

This 68-acre property has all the goodies for a beautiful wedding - lush forests, flowering meadows, trees as old as time, an enchanting house decorated by a grand staircase in the foyer, and filled with rooms that could tell centuries-old stories.

The bride and groom currently reside in the mountains of Utah, but arranged for their guests to meet in Caitlin's home state of Virginia to celebrate the start of their new life together. When I landed in Virginia to photograph this wedding, the sky was blanketed in dark spring rain clouds, and literally the only day it didn't rain was on Saturday, April 1 - the day Caitlin + Byron would say "I do."

Caitlin thought of it all:
- bridesmaids each wearing their individual choice of a floor-length floral gown, resulting in a bridal party that looked like a bouquet of beauties!
- lawn games for the guests to play during cocktail hour in the garden
- a fire pit outside of the reception tent with a table of fixins for s'mores
- late night donuts
- Irish dancing music to pay homage to her father, who immigrated from Ireland
- family-style dinner tables, which made a large wedding seem like an intimate affair

I'm so thrilled for this adorable couple (and parents to two bunny rabbits), who will be heading to Iceland for their honeymoon! Got some good advice on Iceland (or on marriage?) - please leave a comment for the happy newlyweds!!
