Kenzie, like some kids can be, was very shy at first but as soon as we got to our destination she was out-going and ready to explore the woods in-between takes! She was a joy to be around and so glad I got to know her!

| Jacqui & Eric | Linville Falls, North Carolina http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/10/-jacqui-eric-linville-falls-north-carolina Jacqui & Eric are such a beautiful couple! They were both up for any of my suggestions and were laughing and goofing with each other the entire session. We took an hour and a half drive to get there, but boy, was that view worth it! Did I mention the waterfall??!!! Thank you both for such a wonderful day!

| Amber, Gunner & Finley | Jetton Park, Cornelius, NC http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/-amber-gunner-finley-jetton-park-cornelius-nc When I met Amber at Jetton Park for the first time, neither one of us could get a word in with each other because Gunner & Finley wanted to do all of the talking! I loved that. They were not shy at all, and were talking to me like they've known me for years. I have never met two kids that were instantly comfortable with me! They were fun, silly and so excited to play outside. I finally got to speak with Amber and get to know her a little more after the session while they played on the park playground. Thank you again, Amber! I had such a great time with you and your family!

Stacia Birthday: Charlotte, North Carolina http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/6/stacia-birthday-charlotte-north-carolina Stacia contacted me my first week here in Charlotte, wanting to celebrate her birthday and have a fun, and silly session. Fun and silly? That's what I am all about! She had props planned, and we met at the Independence Park. Stacia told me about being a school counselor, and I tell you, those children at her school are so blessed to have this positive, smart and loving woman there for them! She sends out this positive vibe about her job, and about herself. I wish more people could feel as beautiful as Stacia does about herself. I will tell you: this girl worked the camera! I only had to tell her to adjust her head once this entire session because with every shutter click she was posed differently. Thank you so much, Stacia! You are beautiful inside and out and I cannot tell you how much fun I had with you on Saturday! May your positivity, and confidence shine through and rub off on everyone that you meet in your life!

Relocating to Charlotte, North Carolina http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/5/relocating-to-charlotte-north-carolina I am very excited for my new adventure! Moving to North Carolina is a dream come true! Kansas really is more beautiful than most people give it credit for (especially these amazing sunrises/sunsets we get to witness), but I cannot wait to be so close to the mountains AND the beach! Whaaat! That's like the best of both worlds!


To all of my Kansas clients that are interested in Family, Engagements, Couples, High School Seniors or Maternity sessions before I leave please call or email me as soon as possible! I am leaving May 24th and am offering $100 1-hour sessions before I make the big move!


For all of the potential clients in the Charlotte, North Carolina area, I am also offering an introductory price of $100 for a 1-hour session of the above categories. If you have questions regarding this, please call me at 785-341-2830 or email me at photo.dkimages@gmail.com and I would be more than happy to hear from you and answer any of your questions!


Thank you all for your love and support <3

| Dennis Maternity | Manhattan, KS http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2017/4/-dennis-maternity-manhattan-ks When the Jenny & Jamie told me they were pregnant at their fall session, I was thrilled! When Jenny messaged me a few weeks ago about getting newborns of their son Jackson I knew we had to get maternity portraits of her before he is born. Jenny, you are just glowing and so beautiful! Below are some of my favorites from the session. Thank you again for trusting me with your memories!!!

$75 Christmas Minis! | Manhattan, KS Child & Family Photographer http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/10/-75-christmas-minis I am so excited to announce this year I will be offering my wonderful clients Christmas Minis! These will be so much fun for the kids because they can even wear their Christmas pajamas! I have two backdrops: Red Christmas Sweater, or Beige Bokeh (See examples below!).

What you get with a mini session:

- 20 minutes
- 10-15 final edited images that you will download from your online gallery
- A print release to print wherever you choose (or you can choose to order from me)

*If you prefer to have a family mini session we can do that outside for $100. You get the same benefit of the above but with 15-20 final edited images and 30 minutes shooting time!


Limited space is available, and you are required to pay when you book the session. If circumstances arise and you are not able to make the date you have booked, we can trade this mini in for another mini session at a different time of the year. I so look forward to hearing from you!

Allison Family | Manhattan, Ks Photographer http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2016/10/allison-family-manhattan-ks-photographer Not only did I get the honor to shoot Ashley + Austin's engagement and wedding photos, I also had the pleasure of shooting a family session! The one thing that has changed since I last worked with these two? They had a baby boy who is now 6 months old! Eeek, he's adorable (just look at his smiles!). Thank you again, Ashley + Austin for trusting me with your memories!

| Ashley + Austin Wedding | Manhattan, KS Wedding Photographer http://dkimagesphoto.zenfolio.com/blog/2015/6/-ashley-austin-wedding-manhattan-ks-wedding-photographer I picked up Ashley & took her to meet her soon-to-be husband, Austin, at the Marianna Kistler Beach Museum of Art on Kansas State University's campus. They were both very anxious to have their first look together before the wedding ceremony. It had been pouring rain that week, and sprinkles on and off that morning. Ashley was not upset or nervous about the weather at all-not like any other bride would be! The sun peaked through the clouds during the First Look which made the setting perfect (I think it was Ashley's positive attitude that caused the sun to come out!)!

Their day was filled with lots of laughs, smiles, (happy) tears and most of all, love. Not only did two people become husband and wife, but a complete family. Austin made beautiful vows not only to Ashley, but her daughter Savannah, as well. There wasn't a dry eye listening to him read those words! The night ended with a huge surprise for the groom! Ashley surprised Austin with a guest visit from Willie the Wildcat at their reception! What?! 


Congratulations to you again, and for choosing me to capture your special moments!






First Look: Marianna Kistler Beach Museum, KSU Campus
Ceremoney / Reception: Houston Street Ballroom
Bride's Dress: Celebrations of the Heart
DJ Service: To The Max DJ Entertainment
