bored {Kansas City Childrens Photographer}

ok. So I'll admit to a wee bit of boredom at our household today. And in order to spice things up a bit, the girls and I decided to dress up, head out, and check out a few new photography locations. The sun was shining nicely and everyone seemed to be in a good mood. Just one small problem...that beautiful sunshine that looked so glorious from my kitchen window also had a pretty fierce (and cold) wind to accompany it. So we mostly drove around (and stopped for ice cream). I did convince the girls to hop out of the car at one stop...but we only got a handful of shots in before they started to grimace and dance about.

Still totally worth it for this shot.

I love that they had so much fun getting on their funky outfits...A thought her striped footless tights and leopard print skirt were the perfect winning combination.

And J sported her plaid blazer and her skinny jeans...everyone should have the opportunity to see their toddler in skinny jeans. Love that school girl look on her.


Thanks for the fun afternoon girls. Sorry about the cold...hope the ice cream made up for our failed photo shoot...we'll play "fashion girls" another day...I promise!

Jenn, the texture and colors on these are amazing! Definitely worth braving the cold.

Lovely shots, but what I like most is that you recognized boredom and went into action. I take an interest in the behavior people exhibit when they feel bored, and what their Elements of Interest are. See more at ThePowerOfBoredom.com

Those are so cute! A's funky outfit is fabulous. I love how you captured the eyes and the texture on A's photo. I was out on a paid shoot in this harsh light...posting now!

ah, gorgeous. this time of year makes me envy all those texas gals and their year-round outdoor shoots.

love the girls' inherent sense of style...L picks out her outfits most days, but we generally end up with a stripey sweater and pj shorts. ;)
