A Gentleman & A Lady At Belvoir Winery!

Belvoir Winery is said to be haunted. But as far as photography purposes — it serves as the perfect backdrop for gentleman and a lady — Kaylee & Konner!


Twice a year, I (Christine) be sure to go back over to Kansas City to photograph my much loved regulars (Tatiana usually covers the Kansas City area!). So, of course, I sent a message over to the Good family to let them know I would be in last weekend.


Kate not only loves photos of her adorable children, but also loves Scentsy — so I always make sure to hook her up with both!

We were originally going to do a photoshoot with the entire family, but Kody is serving in the military (thank you!), and got called out with his unit last weekend. So, we decided to take photos of just the kiddos this round, and then have another mini shoot with the family this Fall!


And my regulars know how important it is to have photos every year! These two photos below were taken only one year apart. And look at how different Konner look already! Kids grow like weeds!

Crazy, right? And it was almost exactly one year apart! And let’s not forget about our beautiful Kaylee:

I am excited to get photos of our high school sweethearts later this year, too! Then, we can compare the family photos from the year before, too! I love watching the Good kiddos grow up!


Kaylee looked like a beautiful princess! Her dress was flowing and long, and just perfect for her! She also had a flower crown around her curly hair.


However, in true princess fashion, we did have to help her from one photo spot to the next. The dress was really long, so we had to keep reminding her to lift it up when she walked!


And now it’s story time for Mr. Konner. My oldest, Lily, is little besties with him. She came with me to this photoshoot. At the end, Konner and Lily raced back to the car. Lily beat him and he goes: “You cheated!”

Kate asked Konner how Lily cheated. He informed her that Lily beat him.

Kate said, “That’s not cheating, she was just faster than you, bud!”

To which Konner said: “No, she won, so she cheated!”

Kate said he got his losing skills from his father. Hahaha!


It was great to see all of you! Excited for our next family shoot.

A Chilly [But Fun] Family Photoshoot at Longview Lake, With Monkey Bars!

It’s Tatiana here, back from the cold and having one! I’m glad to be back to work — and boy, is there a lot of it. I can’t complain, though, since I’m doing what I love with lovely people. Like the Barnes family!

I was so excited to be able to meet the Barnes family for a mini family shoot at Longview Lake last week!

Christine got to work with them last year at Unity Village. It’s always fun to see the comparisons with clients over the years, especially when kids are involved! They can grow and change so much every year!


Kiarra has some new glasses — she went from pink to blue! And then Kinzie looks so much taller! Karson is definitely the biggest change since he’s the youngest. He’s gotten so big in just one year! *sniffles*

This was my first time taking photos at Longview Lake. It was stunning!! Speaking of stunning, Kiarra’s cute shoulder-cut out sweater was just perfect!

Barnes 22

Kiarra is in the double digits now, and oh-so sweet! She even gave me a hug and thanked me for taking her photos. Isn’t that adorable?!

Barnes 23

Kinzie is six and cute as a button! She’s definitely got that smile down! She was a total champion during the shoot, despite it being pretty frigid!

These sisters aren’t camera shy at all, which is great for me as I didn’t have to give them hardly any direction. They were also obsessed my hair … probably because it’s the best color ever (purple)!

Barnes 21

Little brother, Karson, on the other hand, had to transform into a dinosaur and try to chase me in order for me to get some smiles outta him. That’s to be expected from any 2-year-old!

Barnes 20

He actually did the same thing last year, too! He’s all about runnin’!


Plus, his candid pictures are priceless! These remind me of that Leonardo DiCaprio meme. So jolly!

Christina and Brad are the proud parents of three amazing children! I’m glad they were willing to venture out into the chilly winds so I could capture their love on camera.

Barnes 27

I was also able to snag some shots of the kids on the playground before our time was up!

Barnes 25

The girls were expert monkey bar flippers. I’m sure Karson will follow suit in a few years!

Of course if I tried this, I would fall flat on my face. Christine would probably encourage me to try, just so she could take the pictures of it if I fail.

Wishing the Barnes family happy times to come! We hope to see you next year, too!
