Instagram is a great tool for marketing, showing off work, and apparently making friends. It’s how I ended up doing this adorable In-Home Session in downtown KC with these incredible men.

Cecil and Zach run an adorable instagram account that you can find here. Their goal is to show you that not all gay men are fit, white, and insanely beautiful. (I’d argue that they’re just proving that all queer folx are cute as hell, but that’s neither here nor there) It’s a really adorable look into their life that seems almost *too* glamorous, but can confirm. It’s amazing.

They have two amazing cats, one who they swear doesn’t hate me (even though I stepped on his tail), an adorable apartment, & they’re both so amazingly smart and funny. We traded stories about our least proud moments in life, discovered that our anniversaries are *really* close together, and I learned that Zach is a Kardashian.

Zach’s considering going back to school for interior design, & honestly I’m tempted to come back for them and just take some real estate type photos for his portfolio. Everything is amazingly bright, clean, & there’s enough “clutter” to look lived in while also still incredibly neat.

I’m also so blessed that these two decided to do an in-home session after I sent over my photo guide to them. I think everyone who loves their space should be photographed in it. When E and I buy a house, I’m definitely making it a priority. It’s an easy way to get photos of pets you don’t want to bring out, it captures a place you probably spend a lot of time in, and it makes it even more personal and special to you.

I mean, you absolutely do not have to take it from me. Scroll through these images to get just a glimmer of how in love these two obviously are. Maybe even use the instagram trick to make some new friends who also do themed dinners every month. (Yes, really.) It’s a great way to make some amazing people and get images that everyone will love and feel great about.

I have been asked to write this one million times. In fact, I have sat down to do it and then I realize I don’t feel qualified. I still don’t, but for the 1 person I might help? Let’s just try it. There are some unavoidable things in life, but as much as I can […]

My boudoir studio is located right where we took these photos. Why on earth is this my first engagement session there? When Katie & Jesse told me they wanted something the complete opposite of their wedding vibe (barn-like) and preferred the look of the historic West Bottoms for their engagement session, I was all in.

Hi! The site looks a little different if you’ve been here before, yeah? If not, welcome to my tiny corner of the internet! When I imagined introducing my new branding and website to the world, 100% of me knew I wanted to do it with this blog post. Was I sure what “this” blog post […]

Chark & I (that’s Charleen & Mark) headed out to Red Door Wine Store last week for their engagement session. I quickly knew upon their inquiry that we were kindred spirits. Ean & I also used our celebrity couple name (Tean) to create an e-mail to organize all of our wedding e-mail shenanigans. It felt […]
