It was a bit brisk the day of this session so we decided to head to our wonderful Lawrence Public Library. After greeting me at the door with his mamas in tow, he quickly decided to give me a tour of his favorite places, starting with Thomas the Train. These photos are a perfect example of a Lifestyle Family Session. I love these types of sessions because with a little observation you can capture some nice images. It’s also great for kiddos because they simply play and don’t have the restrictions of a studio session. The smiles are genuine and the images speak for themselves. This session was shot with my Nikon D800 with my 35mm lens. This is my favorite combo for lifestyle sessions because I can shoot wide shots as well as close up shots. It allows me to interact with the kids and have fun along with them to achieve genuine reactions.
This year I am am expanding my Lifestyle Sessions to clients homes. How neat would it be to have intimate photos of your family enjoying themselves hanging in your home? Look for more of these sessions in the next month. Head over to the family section to learn more about these sessions in my welcome guide.
After my boudoir session today I stopped by to check out the Museum of Good Vibes. This place is AWESOME! There’s confetti, a swing, a ball pit and so much more. I had such an amazing time snapping selfies and making silly videos with Instagram filters. It’s simply so fun! When you leave you feel so light and relaxed. It’s that feeling you get after spinning in circles and falling down. Do yourself a favor and treat yourself to a carefree moment. You won’t regret it. You can see more silliness on my Instagram Story!
Museum of Good Vibes is a unique pop-up experience designed to be both immersive and shareable.
Our mission is to inspire creativity and spread good vibes far beyond the walls of our exhibits.
Today I had the opportunity to check out the progress on the new Black Stag Brewery which is set to open this Spring. Among the organized chaos you can see this unique space taking shape. It’s clear that they have paid attention to every little detail from the ceiling to the floor. Owner John Hampton explained to me the importance of recycling was to the building process. Everything from the amazing 100 year old barn wood beams, the 50 pounds of nails taken out of palettes to the bar which has reclaimed wood from the Baker Wetlands, you can see this is a labor of love. I hope you enjoy this little sneak peek and I can’t wait to see the finished space.
The love of Lawrence, of brewing beer and of good food developed a passion for home town hospitality in our founders. Opening a brewery and restaurant in the heart of Downtown Lawrence was a merging of family ideals, passion, experience and timing.
