Almost 5 years ago, we shot Minh-Tu and David’s wedding. And now, their sweet little guy is 2 years old! Man, how time flies. Little Wally was sound asleep while everyone was buzzing around getting things just perfect to celebrate his big day. He seemed a bit confused when Mom and Dad woke him up to get him ready for his grand entrance. It’s ok little dude…I don’t like being woken up either. Even for a great party. But what a great day it was. Tons of amazing food, adorable decorations and party favors, a super yummy cake, and of course, all the people who love little Wally the most. Happy birthday Wally!!!
I feel like I say this every time we post a new session, but we truly have been photographing this family forever. Or at least it feels like that. In a good way. This session was prompted by Mr. Bennett’s 2nd birthday. Happy birthday, B! There are a lot of super hip and stylish families in Kansas City, but these guys might just take the cake.
This is session #2 for the Villegas Family Year in the Life. Now that baby Nora is a little bigger, the family decided to head to the downtown KC public library so her older brothers could run and play, and they could all enjoy some fun time outside this beautiful building. And of course, Batman and Superman showed up for a few cameos.
From the moment we first met Mae over Google Hangout, we knew that we wanted to be a part of her and Chris’s wedding day. Thankfully they felt the same. We started out by getting to know them a bit better at their engagement session. And I guess I can only speak for us, but that made us even MORE excited for their wedding day. If you look up “understated elegance” in the dictionary, this is, quite honestly, what you should see. From her timeless dress, to their classic cake, and most importantly, all the real, honest, intimate little moments between them and the ones they love…it was the most beautiful celebration of friendship, love, and partnership. What a blessing to be able to be the ones to tell their story. Mae and Chris…thank you, from the bottom of our hearts for inviting and allowing us to take part in your day.

This was such a glorious day. Amber and Eric kept things super casual and made sure the focus was on their two sweet families joining together. And of course, ensuring that all the people they love most in this world had as much fun as they did. They decorated the Bauer absolutely perfectly, the way Amber’s dress framed her beautiful tattoos was on point…and are you kidding me with her adorable little red headed boy?!? That guy might steal the “Cutest Kid On The Blog” title. It so wonderful that these two and their beautiful children found each other, and have now started their new life together. Amber and Eric, thank you for inviting us to be part of your day. It was truly an honor. We wish all of you many years of love and happiness!!!
