Things are a little quiet around here lately, as we welcomed our sweet baby girl into the world one week ago! Dahlia Raye Calton was born May 30th and 2:49 am! 💕 We are absolutely in love with her. Bear with me as I get back into the rhythm of things. I’m on maternity leave for at least the next month. I can’t wait to start shooting again, but in the mean time, I’m snuggling this girl tight. 💕 If you have questions feel free to send me messages and emails. And be patient with me as I get back to them slowly. If you want to see more photos of our sweet girl, you can visit my personal page @herewedwell Thank you all for your love and support 💕🥰 And thanks to @capturedbykylee for always doing such an amazing job on our photos 💕
Waiting on baby girl to arrive is a lot harder to do when you don’t have any sessions to edit. Missing getting behind the camera 😭
Y’all, if I don’t recreate a similar image with my little girl, then what am I even doing with my life?! Vada girl, you are so beautiful! 💕
I’m officially allowed to shoot again, but I’m having this baby any day now. Lol. I’m due in two weeks! But my son came early, so it won’t surprise me if little girl decides to show up very soon. Spending the next week shooting rescheduled sessions, and then I’ll be taking maternity leave for a bit. I am really missing my clients and getting behind the camera. But definitely enjoyed the time off to get ready for baby girl. Photo of me and the hubby that I took with my tripod. It’s really hard to take your own photos. But we’re getting family photos with @hannahdeerphotography tonight and I know she’ll do amazing!
I decided to jump on a Quarantine Photo Challenge that my boss babe friends @basicallyemilyphoto and @carihughesphotography started! Today’s topic was SWEATPANTS. This is my kinda challenge. Lol. Being stuck at home and no shoots has been super disheartening. Especially because this warmer weather is one of my favorite times to be out shooting! And while I’m still editing a few things from before quarantine started, I love the getting out and shooting part of my job! Don’t let this photo deceive you. Using a tripod and self timer with a toddler is definitely difficult. 🤣 I’ve been using the last few days to get more creative! And I’m LOVING the results. Thanks Cari and Emily for starting this challenge!
Something about white, wood, and greenery that just makes me swoon.
To all of my clients: I am working very hard on trying to stay flexible with this coronavirus going around. If you feel even the slightest bit under the weather, let’s reschedule. With me being pregnant and having a little one at home, and lots of you having little ones as well, it’s better to be safe than sorry. ✌🏻❤️
Precious whittle babe. 💕
We had the most beautiful golden light for Kitty and Luke’s maternity photos the other night. So sad to see the sunshine and warm weather from the weekend go away on today’s gloomy rainy day. Anybody else dying for Spring and Summer - warmer weather ?! . . . . #motherhoodphotography #fresh48 #birthphotography #kcbirth #kcbirthphotographer #maternity #maternityphotography #bumpphotography #lifestyle #newborn #bump #mommyandme #newbornphotography #lifestylenewborn #motherhood #kansascitynewbornphotographer #kansascitynewborn #kansascitybirth #kansascitybabies #babyphotography
So many cute photos from this session with Lillian and Nick. Can’t wait for their wedding this fall! 💕
“There’s an urgency to soak in these moments with our children. There’s a longing to bottle up every ounce of these memories and keep them tucked safely in our hearts. There is a beauty and a pain that runs deep in a mama’s heart. An ache of mixed emotions that we try our best to sort through. Excitement for the future, but the dread of them growing up. Longing for a full nights sleep, but missing the midnight rocking chair moments. Wanting them to succeed, but fearing they will no longer need you.￼ A mother’s heart is constantly rocked back and forth between the waves of changing emotions. A never ending battle within us. But that battle is also the proof of our love.” Introducing Motherhood Sessions. Wonderwood Photography is now offering motherhood sessions in the in home studio space. Perfect for the cold months, and perfect for all the firsts for baby. Babies don’t keep, guys. But, Mama, you are important too. And not only is your baby precious, but so is the love you have for them. It’s something that deserves to be remembered. And it’s something your children will long to see. Step in front of the camera for a change. Let me capture the proof of your love for your babies. . . . . . #motherhoodphotography #fresh48 #birthphotography #kcbirth #kcbirthphotographer #maternity #lifestyle #newborn #bump #mommyandme #newbornphotography #lifestylenewborn #motherhood #kansascitynewbornphotographer #kansascitynewborn #kansascitybirth #kansascitybabies #babyphotography

HAPPY NEW YEAR. It’s the roaring 20’s again!! I’ve been so MIA for the last month. I was slammed with weddings, and then my husband and I spontaneously decided to move, on top of finding out we are expecting a new little babe! It’s been an exciting few months. But I’m back, and I’m so excited! To kick off the new year I’m running a special for my boudoir ladies. Check it out on my private page @wonderbabes.selflove
It’s a good thing we grabbed photos of this mama when we did, because we have a feeling baby Freya might be coming earlier than expected! So excited for this sweet girl to make her appearance into the world. There will be definite tears. 😅
