Crunchy Mama- Kansas City Children’s Photographer – A Peek Through My window

Eating healthy as a girl who really loves all things loaded with butter and sugar, welp, it can be pretty dang difficult.  But trying to get my kids to eat healthy…now thats a feat I have yet to master.

I love my awesome granola munching, crunchy, health nut friends who post epic pictures on social media of their 3 year olds gulping down their newest concoction of kale smoothie topped with some crazy impressive powder that has enough vitamins to power a super hero.  I mean, seriously though, you guys are ahhmazing.  And although Ive tried (MUCH to failure) to get my kids to become the poster children for “eating healthy with a smile”…all I can hope for is that if I threaten to take away enough electronics that maybe, just maybe, they will take a sip of (and actually swallow!!) some crazy healthy new detox smoothie I find online…

Cause let’s be real…the only thing “organic” my kids are munching on these days is grass….

Little man’s 3 months – Overland Park Newborn Photographer

SO this little guys parents came to me and asked if I could do some newborn pictures.  Since he was already 3 months old, I told them it wouldn’t be “traditional” newborn pictures since he was going to be bigger and more awake than a typical newborn, but we would get it the ol’ college try.  🙂  Well, let me just say….I totally fell head over heels in love with 3 month old babies.

Can photographers specialize in 3 month olds?  Is that even a thing? 😉

Nah..I guess I couldn’t live without my snuggly little newborn beans to capture, BUT there is something pretty dang magical about 3 months as well!  I forget how precious this time in a babies life is.  They cant crawl yet or even sit up, but they just stare into your eyes and make sounds that came straight from heaven…seriously though!!!  It makes me wish I remembered more of my kiddos at that age.  But I probably can’t totally blame myself. The lack of sleep and mental exhaustion was more to blame… 😉

The gift of sleep – Kansas City Children’s Photographer – A Peek Through My Window

A Peek Through My Window- The gift of sleep

The other night, after each child had done their 3 am “rounds” into my bedroom, I thought to myself… Im pretty sure Ive heard that sleep deprivation is a form of torture…I mean, surely, this could make someone go straight up insane.  And thus, led me on my google search.

“The first signs of sleep deprivation are unpleasant feelings of fatigue, irritability, and difficulties concentrating.  Then come problems with reading and speaking clearly, poor judgment, lower body temperature, and a considerable increase in appetite.  If the deprivation continues, the worsening effects include disorientation, visual misperceptions, apathy, severe lethargy, and social withdrawal.” -Phycology Today 

EVERYTHING MAKES SO MUCH SENSE NOW!!! 😉

Im sorry kids that your mom is slightly crazed 80 percent of the time…but not to point fingers…but its kinda your fault… 😉

Every now and then a seasoned mom will comfort me with the hope that one day they REALLY will ALL sleep through the night and someday, maybe… just maybe.. I could go a night without having to be kicked in the face by a small child…

But until that day, I live vicariously through this girl…who can fall asleep any time…any where…and in every position imaginable…. KG8A3095 copy

Lawrence Family pictures -Kansas City Photographer- The Old Redbridge

This precious family contacted me to do some family pictures near our city’s UBER cool red bridge located in south Kansas City! It happens to be right down the street from me so when I go running (which, lets be real…is hardly ever) I go down some awesome trails nearby, which ends up leading me to the super fun red bridge.

All that to say, this family was so fun to work with AND they own an amazing local natural health food store…so all in all, they are just some pretty stellar people! 😉
