Valentine’s Day Photo Shoot – West Bottoms, Kansas City February 15, 2009

Since it was pretty chilly on Valentine’s Day, one of my photo shoots was postponed until nicer weather and the other was postponed because of sickness. I had been pretty excited to shoot in some new locations on Valentine’s Day, so my sweet husband and I set out to scout out some new spots and do some “photo hunting” for future shoots. Of course, since we already had a camera in the car, we had to test out the spots ourselves.

Here are some of the shots from our Valentine’s Day photo session of each other in the West Bottoms district of Kansas City — basically the old stockyards, railroad tracks, abandoned warehouses, etc. Basically a photographic dream. I (obviously) took all of the photos of Jeff, and he took the ones of me! Here are the results:


I am in love with that background… and the guy in the foreground, too… I mean, how could I not be? Check out this cute face:


Jeff did a great job with some shots of me. I really like this close-up. It’s cool in color, too, but I love it in black and white.


We always make it a goal to capture the true personalities of our clients. Here, Jeff pretty much captured mine perfectly (ha ha… oh my…):


Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I just shared that on my blog. I’m not ashamed. :)

Okay, some more shots of my super sweet valentine:


Awww… a heart, just for me (and all of you now). You know, since it was Valentine’s Day! Yep, we are that cheesy. :)


My husband is just so sweet. I love you! :)

Isn’t the West Bottoms a great spot for photos? Who’s up for a session there??
