Meet the Randall family. Professional movers. Super smart. Overachievers in every way possible. Don’t believe me? Let me explain. Nicole and Kip have been married for six years, but they’ve done SO much in those years.

They’re an Army family and they’ve moved across the country multiple times. I met Nicole through an old friend who they knew while they were stationed in North Carolina, so when they moved to Kansas, Nicole and I quickly became friends. Meanwhile Kip graduated from KU Law School, Nicole got her Master’s Degree and they had a baby too! Talk about getting stuff done in six years!

Kip and Nicole have one of the sweetest relationships. It’s super cute to see them interact as parents and besties together while Kipper was running all over the place.

While Kipper, one of the cutest kids ever, was running around run the grass, Nicole and I had quite a few freak-outs over spiders that Kip had to save us from. Yes, it took me a having a trained soldier around me to feel like I was safe from a spider! Let’s not talk about that. Ahem.

Anyway. Nicole and Kip, the connection you two have is contagious and you’ve created the most perfect little human. I will gladly chase Kipper around in spider web fields any time you ask me to! Thank you both for your service, I am honored to get to photograph such an amazing family!

XOXO,
Kelsey

We met at Clinton Lake here in Lawrence for a gorgeous day this summer and everything just fell perfectly into place. Jennifer and Brandon are such laid-back parents and were totally calm and cool when dealing with heat, a month old child and a two year old.

Charlotte is a little firecracker who kept all of us on our toes. Sometimes literally as I was trying to get the perfect shot before she saw something else to catch her eye. I love that her energy and spirit are encouraged by her parents.

Nick was just a month old, but he was so chill, much like his parents! His sister totally doted on him and it was amazing to see this family come together and love on him. Oh and he has the most amazing smile ever. Don’t believe me? Trust me, just look at the photos and you’ll understand.

Jennifer and Brandon, I am so grateful you guys chose me as your family photographer! You guys are amazing and I fell in love with your children especially. I cannot wait to photograph more memories of your growing family for years to come!
XOXO,
Kelsey

If there is an award for most frequent appearance on the blog, the Fales family would win it! I’ve photographed their engagement, wedding, maternity, Kailynn’s birth, and family sessions!

I love this family so much it feels like basically getting to hang out with my own family. Larkin and Brent are both laid back people but Kailynn has enough personality for the entire room! Every session she just gets sassier and I love it! My favorite part of the session were the silly faces she made. So freaking cute!

Duke, second star of the show, is also one of my favorite Dog friends and is been amazing to see him transition to protective big brother. He definitely shows us how patient he is with Kailynn’s ahem, lack of motor skills.

You guys KNOW I love you! I love being a part of your family and getting to watch you grow. I love that you have watched me grow as a photographer too. I am the luckiest woman in the world to have you all as clients and friends!
XOXO,
Kelsey

Where do I even start with the Cantwell family?

Kelly is not just a mom, she’s a cool mom. She taught fitness skating, yes, like on roller skates, and is in a roller Derby league in Milwaukee. Chris is a history professor and just wrote a book! Emerson is the oldest and he has some hardcore modeling talent. He’s fun, smart and is a pretty good big brother to Elliot, who is the goof ball of the family. These boys kinda have my heart now. Brothers are the best!

The session was perfect! The boys were full of stories and loved educating me on dinosaurs. I kind of wanted to give up my photography career and become their full-time nanny. I genuinely miss them already since they’ve moved to Milwaukee.

What was an initially adorable idea in my head, ended in a literal bloody disaster. After having a completely flawless session, I came up with this great idea to have the boys run up behind their parents and tackle them. However, Elliot accidentally hit Emerson and knocked his tooth loose. Like, as in, he lost his tooth during the session.

Naturally I just kept taking photos of this, because duh. I’m not going to lie, I was super excited that I got to experience a real-life childhood memory!

Kelly and Chris, you and your boys are my favorite! I love you as individuals and I love you all together even more. I hope that someday I get to create a family just as great as yours. I know that we might have just met a few months ago but I have a feeling there’s a road trip to Milwaukee in my future!

XOXO,

Kelsey
