Join Me This Weekend as We Kick Off the Christmas Season in Lenexa

We just wrapped up our dress rehearsal for A Kansas City Christmas, the annual Christmas program at Lenexa Baptist Church. And let me tell you, it's going to be incredible!

 

After 18 months of no choir and orchestra, we began rehearsing again in September. We have rehearsed each week while spread out in the congregational seats, so being all together up on the stage tonight was rather exhilarating.

There are three opportunities this weekend to see the program:

Saturday, December 4 at 1 & 5 pm
Sunday, December 5 at 5 pm

Can't make it in person? Then you can also watch it online at the website.

 

Fall Family Session in Olathe

It's always fun to do a session for friends. We serve together at Lenexa Baptist Church, and  this family is amazing! From their commitments at church to their kids activities to all their teaching jobs and more...I have no idea how they even had time for family photos!

 

Here are just a few shots from their session.

Fall Extended Family Session in Olathe

It's always a challenge to coordinate an extended family session, so I count it a win when we find a day and time that works for everyone — especially a day with perfect weather and perfect temperatures. To top it off, this Olathe park had the perfect lighting and backdrops for our session.

 

What a joy it is to photograph three generations at once. Family is a gift, and this family is intentional about treasuring each other. Thank you for letting me document your time together!

Family Session in Prairie Village

I love it when parents make it a priority to get family photos — no matter their children's age or location!

 

For this extended family session, we were able to meet at a beautiful new park in Prairie Village, but it might have taken an act of Congress to get all the children and grandchildren in one place. Ok, maybe I'm exaggerating a bit. But this was one of the few days that worked. It helps that they were celebrating birthdays, and even though our session fell on my birthday, I didn't mind one bit, knowing:

A) I would be celebrating with my family on Sunday,
B) This is one of the few times that worked for this family, and

C) I didn't have to come home and make dinner, because I was getting treated to Joe's Kansas City.

 

I love it when a plan comes together!
