If you are in Kansas City and are looking for a different approach to family portraits you may have just found the answer.

We believe family photography in Kansas City should be approached in the same way we approach our wedding photography. Years ago we used to shoot family portraits at our studio the traditional way. We then realized we should in turn be documenting a family in their natural state. Looking for real moments. Moments that fade in the blink of an eye. It was then that the Normal Day Session was born. The idea is simple, we come to you and document your family doing what you all normally would do together. It can be a quiet afternoon at home baking cookies, bath time, or playing in the backyard. It can be a one year old birthday party, a vacation, or Kansas City birth photography of your first child. We document with no posing, no direction or interference from us.  The result is incredible and always surprising. Being able to let life unfold in front of our cameras and capture those special unique moments between a mom and her daughter or two siblings is incredible. I personally have had day in the life sessions done of my family and I can’t tell you how important those photographs are. The photo to the left of me helping my son do his hair before school is something I do everyday and I want to remember that as one day he will not need my help anymore. This time we have with our children is short we need to document it. My mom once said, “Just remember your kids only get one childhood”.   I want to capture that the best I can for people.
