I adore shooting at new-to-me locations and that’s exactly what Burr Oak Woods Conservation Area was for this KC metro engagement session! I had gone out a couple weeks earlier to location scout and boy am I glad I did, because it took me awhile to find this infamous spot, the conservation area is over 1000 acres after all… I actually had to stop in the Nature Center and show them a photo of what I was looking for before I realized it was barely inside the front gate!
I get it. One of the most stressful parts of family photos is just choosing what to wear!

That being said, here are 10 tips for planning out your family photo outfits to help take the stress out of the process. There is also a bonus section if you keep reading with inspiration for where to shop!

When Katie was looking for a maternity photographer, she found me and four other photographers in Kansas City online. She sent our work to her photographer friend in Phoenix, where she’s from, and let her choose. She said her friend chose me because my work was the most consistent….. what an incredible compliment! It definitely made my morning :) Katie and Eric are so fun and easy-going, I had such a wonderful time with this sunrise shoot at Loose Park. She will be induced in a week or two and I wish them all the best with this new, incredible season of life they’re about to embark on!
