The Soper Family Film

We had the amazing opportunity to film a story for the Soper family. They have been through a lot in the last several years: a rare cancer diagnosis at 29 years old, followed by a left side pelvis and leg amputation, and figuring out how to live the new normal. Jeff hiked a 14,000 foot peak in Colorado with Kurt to capture that huge accomplishment, an amazing symbol of his journey. Here is their story:

Lindsey and Shawn’s Wedding TEASER Film

We are really excited to share with you a teaser film from Lindsey and Shawn’s wedding! Their package included this teaser, delivered within a few weeks of their wedding — this is a preview of what’s to come in their longer film, and an awesome window into their day.

We noticed on the day of their wedding that they had an adorable exchange on Facebook, and it was perfectly tied to the story of their day, so we took a cue from a videographer friend of ours, Tim Seley, and worked it into their film. We love how it all came together.

Congratulations, Lindsey and Shawn! Happy honeymooning!

Liberty Memorial family photos

This family is one of my favorites. They’re just fun to be around and quick to laugh. I was glad we got to do a family portrait session this fall before I stopped shooting for a while (due to being really pregnant/having a baby soon). I was even more glad we had some beautiful fall colors. And can you even believe their cute outfits and little Nola’s plaid poncho?? :)

Downtown Kansas City family portraits

I love how our city has little hidden gems, like this rooftop park in the middle of downtown. I’ve never been able to photograph a family session here, so this was really fun. It was made even more fun by an awesome family and three cute and smiley kiddos!
