Family Photos Kansas Style

My friend Jill and her family moved to Kansas City from Washington just a few months ago.  When I first met her and discovered her love for the rain and how much she missed it, I instantly thought how fun it would be to do a family shoot in rain puddles with brightly colored rain boots/coats and umbrellas.  With Christmas approaching, though, I thought she aught to do something a little more Kansas-like to send back home to friends and family.  We’ll save the rain puddle pictures for the Spring Jill.  And I’m sorry you don’t have as much rain as you wish you did (you’ll have to settle for tall grass & hay bales, hot & humid Summers and icy Winters), but I’m so glad you moved to Kansas!  We just love your family. :)

    Calley-thanks for your comment. The final result of a photograph is way more about the photographer, the technique and lighting, lenses used, and final editing than it is about the camera. Focus more on how to use the camera and lenses you have and less of the kind of camera used. Best of wishes to you

    I don’t know how you do it, but your family pics manage to capture the true, pure “feeling” of family. I can’t find the right words but somehow with a camera you capture the love and bond and innocence and fun! They aren’t posed or phony; they are real. But you capture that reality with light and color in such a way that it truly is a work of art. These are just stunning!
