Elisha's Maternity Portraits

We had planned this maternity session months ago which gave us plenty of time to think about the clothing, background, and poses.  Once the date was set, I don't know who was more excited, me or Elisha!  Her coral and black outfit went perfect with our brown canvas background which allowed her to show her matching coral shoes.  Baby Mikey didn't want to be left out and decided to start kicking during the pose shown below. The black and white image of Elisha against the window is our favorite image and I just had to show her from my camera LCD screen how beautiful she looked after the shot was taken.  After the portrait dressed in white tops with our blush background, we headed outside.  Since it was windy, we drove our truck down to the wooded gully to capture the three outside images shown below.  As we were driving out of the woods, the pasture looked so beautiful and golden that we took a few moments to take advantage of the setting which went perfect with their yellow and lime-green tops.  Included below are our favorites from the session.  Enjoy!

Gabriel & Uniqua

Uniqua (or better known as Me-Me) and Gabriel wore gray and navy blue outfits for their engagement portraits.  The background we used went perfect with a card design Me-Me showed me before selecting Capturing The Moment Photography to do their portraits.  We started with a profile image to get the couple relaxed and finished up with three more images within the half-hour session.  They liked all four of their poses and I have included them below for your viewing pleasure.  Enjoy!

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
