Fall colors make beautiful portraits

What a perfect weekend to photograph all of the beautiful fall colors around town. Throw in a stunningly statuesque, amazingly talented flutist and you have the combination for a senior portrait session that can’t be beat. Getting subjects to relax is a challenge, but when Hannah started playing her flute, we both were lost in the music and ended up with some fun shots. Thanks to Hannah and her Mom, Lee, for trusting me with their special photos.

 

Portrait scouting downtown

Downtown Kansas City is such an amazing place to scout for photo locations. Every corner, every alley, every building has its own personality. I wish I had a studio space down there. I’m afraid I wouldn’t get much work done, however, I would be too busy roaming the streets playing with light and texture. I am looking forward to taking some portraits in the area, maybe even some urban fashion.
