Kansas City family photography: Making grunge look good...

Not every family can pull off a photo shoot among dilapidated buildings, brightly graffiti-ed walls or garbage-strewn alleys, but this family can. And did.

Meet Mollie, Chris and their sons: precocious, model-to-be Parker (nearly 7)  and Finnian...who is almost 2, darling, stubborn and obsessed with buses and a little girl at daycare named Nora.

I asked Parker if he liked getting his photo taken. He said, "No". But...I think he lied.

Finn was quite the opposite. Always on the move...wanting to do only things that were HIS idea. ;) But we did what we could with that.

And every bus that went by, this is what happened:

Parker was a dear and entertained Finn for a bit while I stole the parents away for some quick shots of just the two of them. Gawwww-gess. ;)

We wrapped a slinky around them both in hopes that Finn would stay sitting next to his brother for a second. But it didn't last long.

This next pic is a telling image of a cute mom trying to appease her kids...

But they have a mind of their own...

Check out the power of the pout with this pic. Like father, like son.

Oh my gosh - what an adorable family. Even the pouting ones are so cute. And the places you took these - wow, beautiful. Love them all. Darbi - super job as usual! (on another note -don't make me cry - I wish I would have had a super photographer around when you were little to catch such pictures.)
