Adrienne Maples is a Kansas lifestyle photographer

Adrienne Maples grew up drawing on the walls, performing in plays and making pretty pictures anyway she could.

Yet while digital technology has significantly changed the craft of photography, Adrienne remains true to its roots. Using light, creative composition and her Southern charm she creates timeless lifestyle portraits that keep her clients coming back year after year after year.

Lifestyle Photographer Julie Smith serving the Kansas City Metro area.

Hi! My name is Julie and I'm the veggie eating, ballet dancing half of this dynamic duo. I started life as a ballet teacher, well… school teacher turned ballet teacher and discovered photography in 2007. I really love to organize things (Mike is over on his side of the office emphatically shaking his head YES right now). While I do love a good organizing spree, what really makes me jump out of bed each morning is seeing how God is using us, our lives, our marriage, and even our business, to impact this world. I am deeply in love with that handsome man of mine. I can't BELIEVE I got so lucky. Okay, enough of the mushy stuff. About me. Hmmm... I love photographing faces, up close and personal. 9 times out of 10, I think kids are more interesting than grown-ups. I fall asleep in the car - a lot. I have a teensy bit of an introvert streak.

Mike Smith Lifestyle Photographer Kansas City, Missouri

Drink coffee, chase moments, tell stories. Repeat. We are a husband and wife team who are crazy about each other, best friends, passionate followers of Christ, lovers of all things coffee, history buffs, wannabe travelers – who got our first dose of the awesomeness that is photography back in 2007. We didn’t know this adventure was on the horizon, but when it hit, man… It hit us both pretty hard and we were HOOKED. Looking back, we could never have guessed where this journey would take us. The BEST part of this adventure is navigating it together, for sure. It may sound sappy, but we are best friends who spend every day together, and for us, it just works. Way back before photography, we had separate careers, separate schedules and it just wasn’t any fun. This is definitely better. We love to have fun. In fact, it’s going to be a requirement that you do, too. We think great things can be accomplished through good old-fashioned happiness. Moment driven photography is what we’re about. An authentic image, whether sweet or silly, happy or sad, is going to stir something in you every time you see it. And THAT is what we’re ultimately hoping for the opportunity to provide you. Real images, stirring images, beautiful images. Blessings, MIKE + JULIE

Cedar Rapids lifestyle photographer Kim Pagel, of Iowa

My photography style has been shaped by my own children and grandchildren. I wasn't content with occasional family shoots or snapshots. I wanted to capture each persons unique personality. Now as a grandfather, I want pictures that are honest, genuine, and authentic. I'm passionate about helping families find beauty in the ordinary moments of life! There's nothing more beautiful than the delight of child, an intimate moment between a dad and his son, or the tender expressions of love between a mom and her daughter. These everyday moments seem so ordinary, but when captured through pictures, become more treasured over time. Your family is beautiful and deserves to be photographed. I love capturing unscripted moments that are genuine and hones. No dress 'em up, size 'em up, line em up, and shoot em up. No wonder people don't care for family photo sessions! I believe that real is the new beautiful. All you need to do is relax and be yourself. Don't worry about having the right look or pose, or even what you should wear. I will spend time with you and your family capturing beautiful moments that you will treasure. I would be honored to photograph you and your family!
