nate and lacey are engaged on her parents' ranch .

this was one chilly afternoon where our breath could be seen for miles it seemed. toes and fingertips numb. we adventured on the farley ranch (with horses, ray + buddy), discovered a field of white snow, ran across country roads and private drives.

l + n, cannot wait for your wedding.

enjoy .

this is the day that chanel and drew got married in her father's backyard .

chanel and drew had a private ceremony at her father's home in lees summit this past september. they wanted an intimate celebration with their closest friends and family.

the girls got ready in the moh's family home in a bright and airy sunroom surrounded by plants. chanel bought flowers from the market that morning and all of the bridesmaids made their own bouquets. she wore a headpiece and a gorgeous bohemian dress designed by carisa rene .

there was a taco truck, a full moon and a whole lot of fireworks.

introducing, the 'littles'.

thank you to my talented friend, sara miller for second shooting this magical day with me.

welcome to the world, alfie .

i have photographed this mama and her littles for a couple of years now and each time, i am blown away by their love for one another. how easy and natural it is for me to document their life. this shoot welcomes amanda's newest son, alfie into the world. it takes place in her beautiful home built in 1926.

"i so cherish the one on one time i get to spend soaking in my alfie, touching his sweet button nose and sweet round cheeks. knowing that just a few weeks ago, he was growing in my belly leaves me breathless and completely overwhelmed with love for this little boy. "

i'm so humbled by the graciousness of this family for letting me come into their home and make these memories with them.

adventure lies in gothic, co where the enders' family cabin sits mountainside. this is 'finding gothic.'

back in may, some friends and i made our way west to gothic, co to film a documentary. my friend, tyler's family owns a cabin which was built in the summer of '77 in the quaint town of gothic. once we saw the sunrise at 5am, we made it to the cabin where we started settling in, taking in our surroundings and breathing in that crisp colorado air. we then hiked through the valley, saw plenty of fawns, and enjoyed each others company. the next day, we made our way into the town of crested butte where we rode horses through the aspens, hiked through national forests and did a little relaxing in the colorful town of crested butte.

on our way back to kansas, we stopped and shot on a few open roads with those amazing tones you dream of. we then entered the great sand dunes national park and reservation. one of the most picturesque places i've ever seen.

i am so grateful to have talented friends who are as eager to adventure as i am and thankful for this time spent in such a beautiful place. be sure to check out the documentary which was filmed by andrew shepherd and austin goldberg, edited by nathan eaton, featuring myself, tyler enders and chante gossett.
