Natalie and Andrew's 4- and 2-year-old Portrait Session

We had a lot of fun with Natalie and Andrew's 4- and 2-year-old portrait session!  Mawmaw is always such a great help during their portraits and was instrumental in getting Andrew to cross his legs for his portraits :)  She spent several hours before the session making Natalie's dress that went beautifully with our blush background!  Though we spent only 20 minutes during this session, we were delighted to capture these adorable siblings personality! The family ordered custom albums from this session and a canvas gallery wrap that I have included below along with my favorites from their session. Enjoy!

Two sisters and their awesome brother!

Gabby was looking forward to her K5 graduate portrait session.  Our plans were to photograph Gabby, Alyssia, and Lucas first as a group but Lucas was sound asleep when he arrived.  Alyssia was hesitant at first but after Gabby was finished with her single images in the studio and Lucas woke up, Alyssia was ready for portraits.  As you can see by the images below she was enjoying herself!  It took a few poses to get Lucas fully woke up and the last pose with them on the floor is the clients' favorite.  Once we finished with the studio session we went outside for a few minutes to get Gabby with the wildflowers.  I have included some of my favorites from this session with these adorable sisters and their awesome brother!

Megan enjoys bubbles

Megan was in town and decided to drop by for her 9 month old portraits!  She brought her two sisters along who got in on the session.  They were a great help making bubbles for Megan to enjoy!  Megan did bring her mom and Mawmaw along who were also such a great help getting Megan to smile. I got tickled when I saw the image of the hand holding the teddy bear that was used to get Megan laughing!  It would normally be something you wouldn't want in an image but this particular image seems to give it its cuteness!  We spent a 1/2 hour in the studio then ventured outside to have fun with bubbles.  I have included the clients favorites images from Megan's session for you to enjoy!

Military Generational Portrait

Our client drove from Ohio to visit her daughter and son in law stationed at Fort Riley, Kansas, and wanted generational portraits wearing their military outfits.  I was delighted she chose Capturing The Moment Photography to capture these special portraits that meant so much to her.  She wanted three poses during the session and I have included them below for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

1 is so much fun!

Maik turned 1 and Evan turned 4 this May.  Maik is such a sweetheart and was such a joy to photograph. Evan, well, he did get in on the crucial shots and had a blast riding the wooden horse!  Maik and Evan's extended family were here to celebrate the occasion and we captured several generational portraits.  Our client had a 7-picture frame they wanted to fill with portraits from the session.  We filled it with some of the images below and a collage of Maik's 1 year old images which can be viewed on our website at

A high school graduate, pink petals, and library books

Melisa wore a beautiful lavender dress to start her session against our brown canvas background. In her second image she looks quite dignified while seated in an straight-backed mauve chair.  We headed outside and fought the wind and sun while at the pond.  We ended up merging two pond images--one with her mom holding the reflector and one without her mom in the scene.  Next we drove to the gully to avoid the wind and Melisa had to maneuver herself to get posed on our old stone wall at our property's edge.  We used a scrim to her left propped against the fence to keep the tree limb shade off of her face.  That image was totally worth all of Melisa's effort!  We finished off her session back at the studio against a green cloth background then back to the brown canvas with pink petals and finishing up with her senior shirt.  Because Melisa is very studious I wanted to get her with a book. I normally don't replace backgrounds, but at her mom's suggestion replaced the brown canvas with a library book scene which I had on hand.  Below we have included Melisa's favorites images from her studio and outdoor session.  Enjoy!
