As a mom, I know how time just seems to slip away. Those days of cute baby giggles are quickly replaced by teenage attitude. Before you know it, your baby is all grown up and and you will go back to those precious photo memories. Then some day, those grown up kids, will look back and want to remember you the same way.
Now ask yourself, how often am I in pictures with my family? Do you let excuses like: "I need to lose weight", "I hate my smile" or "I'm awkward in front of the camera," prevent you from being present in photos? That stops now!
My goal is to capture every beautiful, imperfect and goofy family moment, because that is who you are and you should be proud of it! The family portrait experience is all about showing off the true you. I will help guide you every step of the way, from outfit selection and posing to photo selection. I can't wait to meet you soon!

"I would give 10 stars if I could. We absolutely love our family photos! She is quick and patient with kids and pets, and still produces an amazing professional product. My professional head shots are by far the best I have every had. We love the work Abby did and would recommend her to anyone."
- Kim S.
"Abby was so easy to work with and put up with my crazy family! She also did an amazing job incorporating our newest 4 legged family member. The pictures really captured our family and the beauty of the season! Thank you for the memories!"
- Erin F.
"Abby is an incredible photographer. She is creative and insightful, taking our ideas and made them unique and innovative. It was an awesome experience and the pictures were stunning."
- Maegan S.
" Abby is an incredibly gifted photographer and has such an eye for detail capturing even the smallest things that end up resulting in incredible photos! I am so awkward and uncomfortable being photographed and Abby made our family photos so relaxed and fun. We rarely stopped laughing we had such a good time and now when I look back at the photos it's so awesome to not only see the beautiful work she did, but also to think of the fun memories that were captured."
Most sessions take place during the golden hour, 1-2 hours prior to sunset. However, there are a few locations that can be used at any time of day.
Absolutely! Just let me know ahead of time so that I can bring my assistant (my son). He helps keep the dogs attention and holds the leash for pictures without.
I have a variety of locations throughout Kansas City that I frequent. If you have a specific request, I will need to verify lighting conditions to make sure it is a good fit.
I do not have a studio. My sessions are all typically outside on location. There are studio spaces available to rent if you would like to look at this option.
It's Kansas! And we never really know what to expect!. I typically wait until the day of the session to make a decision if we should reschedule.
Don't worry! I have you covered! I will provide you with a wardrobe guide with all of the best tips. Still aren't sure, give me a call or text me pictures!
