Jacob | Basehor-Linwood High School | 2019 Senior

It's finally feeling like fall today and I couldn't be more excited about sharing Jacob's senior football session! We've watched Jacob play basketball for years in some of the most exciting, nail biting games. He was on one of the first teams my husband coached and somehow he's already a senior. This guy is going to do great things, I just know it! What a fun night we had on the football field. I can't wait for the other sessions we have scheduled to document this year!

Olive | Newborn Lifestyle Session | Lauren Gripka Photography

Is there anything more gorgeous that seeing a mama with her brand new baby? Nope, definitely not. This pretty lifestyle session with the Ebert family and their new addition, Olive, was so simple and lovely. Edie is head over heels in love with every detail of her new sister - my heart completely melted with those sister cuddles! These girls are perfect. A big congrats to the whole Ebert family. See more from their maternity session here!

Buland Family | 6 Month Studio Session | Lauren Gripka Photography

I'm so excited to announce I'm now offering studio sessions! I've searched and searched for the perfect light and bright studio for these sessions and I found the perfect one. The Buland Family's 6 month milestone session at the studio is one of my favorites. Isn't this sweet girl so perfect?!

Holton Family | Sunrise Spring Session | Lauren Gripka Photography

Ahh springtime! love when all of the trees turn pink and the sun begins to shine early in the morning (oh how I’ve missed you warm sunshine!) The Holton family's session was a dream and has me so excited for all of the spring sessions this month! I just can't get over little Henry's sweet smile, puckered lips and how his sweet parents just adore him!

Butcher Family | Lifestyle Newborn Session | Lauren Gripka Photography

A few months ago I had the privilege of photographing this baby girls announcement and now that she is here she is simply perfect! This darling, baby girl was yawning and sleeping though her first photoshoot making me fall completely in love with her. It's so special to capture genuine moments as families welcome their newest member. This family was not only incredibly loving, but so much fun to work with. I’m still swooning over the nursery decor! This mama designed it to be neutral since the baby's gender was a surprise. I think it turned out beautiful!

Ebert Family | Lifestyle Maternity Session | Lauren Gripka Photography

I met Jen for the first time at Toby & John's engagement session. I was (what felt like 348582 days) pregnant with my little guy and she was sweet enough to drive us all over the city for photos so we didn't have to hike very far. She had impeccable style and rocked some seriously gorgeous stilettos - you know the kind you think about buying, but decide no way I can walk in. I am forever grateful to her for being so thoughtful and caring during that session!

We celebrated Toby & John's wedding day a few months later where she mentioned she was expecting leading to one of my favorite in home maternity sessions!  This lady is all the mama goals with her cute family, perfectly styled home and adorable baby bump! Thanks for so many fun times, Jen! I can't wait for your baby girl to arrive.

It was such an honor to photograph Dan & Renee's wedding. I've known Renee since design school at the KU and to see her move to this next phase of life was really special. They were surrounded by loving and supportive friends and family who had fun stories of the two and emphasized how perfect they knew these two were together. Their day was filled with so much joy, love and perfect details. Her florals were spectacular and their reception had ALL kinds of cheesecake. Congratulations you two!

This was one of those sessions that just make me want to jump for joy. It was dark and cloudy all day and even rained on the way to the park, but then those Kansas skies gave us the most gorgeous sunset. The light was absolutely perfect and could Ava get anymore stunning?! She has the sweetest personality and comes from a really lovely family. They are warm, inviting and made her session even more of a joy for all of us. Enjoy a few of my favorites!

Laird Family | First Birthday Cake Smash | Shawnee, Kansas

I'm pretty sure I photographed the cutest first birthday cake smash ever this past weekend! Amy and I had been chatting about the perfect location for their session and Shawnee Mission Park was beyond expectation with it's long grasses, shady trees and golden sunlight. Also can we just take a moment and talk about how adorable Kieran is?

Their props, outfits (especially that hat!) and cake were just the best. The rocking chair was Amy's father's when he was young and has a long history in their family! From start to finished this session was perfect and this adorable family rocked their shoot.

Thank you for asking me to capture these memories for you and letting me be a small part in Kieran’s first birthday celebration!
