As soon as I said hello to Emily and Kimbrey, I knew we were going to be getting some serious GOLD with this cute pair. Kimbrey is ridiculously adorable, and sassy as can be! She may be just a little one, but she had an endless supply of attitude and hilarious expressions!
One thing I knew for sure about the Smith family even before their session, is that they cherish the time they get to spend together while adventuring! They love to spend their days in the Ozarks on the gorgeous rivers kayaking, hiking, and living their best lives! So when they wanted to incorporate a river into their photoshoot, I was over the moon!
You want to know what I love? I love it when the love a family has for each other is tangible. I love to meet families that as soon as you meet them, the connection, love and respect they have for each other is felt in your own bones. As soon as I met the sweet Smith family in Joplin, Missouri at the formerly known Wildcat Glades park, I was smitten with how much JOY I felt coming off of them! They were so excited to be meeting me and getting their FIRST EVER FAMILY PHOTOS TAKEN!
