A few weeks ago I was able to Travel to Kentucky to photograph my beautiful niece Maggie. I really love going to new places to photograph and Maggie was wonderful to work with.  ( I know I am a bit biased but her images will speak for themselves ) : )
If you are interested in having me travel to do your session please call me at the studio. 913-783-4529
I am always up for a new adventure!

Be sure to take a look at her video too : )

Some of my favorite Little People

It has been a challenge photographing outdoors in this heat.  The trick from this session... Start Early, loose the shirts, and popsicles at the end : )  We had a lot of fun!!

Ok....  I admit it, I am a really bad blogger.  Having said that, I am a little bit better at posting images on Face Book.  So please friend me  or look for Muffet Petrehn I should not be too hard to find as I'm pretty sure there is only one of me out there : )

It is amazing how time flies and how that time changes things.  My Daughter Courtney ( with my son Reagan in tow ) left for China last Monday.  Reagan will be there for 3 months but Courtney will be there indefinitely and it will be at least 2 years before she comes home. Taylor my other son will be moving to Lawrence in August. I have wanted to spend every extra moment that I could with Courtney and the boys knowing that soon We would not have that opportunity like I would like.  I chose to cut things out in my day that I would normally do and even Needed to do ( like blogging : ) and FB ) because the fleeting time with my kids is so important to me.

So please forgive the lack of Blogging and yes I am still in business and busier than ever : )

Behind the scenes:  We have been working on a new website - A big project that I am excited about. Like all big projects it is taking much longer than I would like. A few months ago I taught my first photography class to photographers - Very fun!  I am also working on a book : ) more about that later!

Hope you all are having a great summer - If you are wanting images this fall please call soon as last year during that time I booked completely up.

Super Monday!

May 14th Muffet will be opening her doors to fellow Professional Photographers and share her knowledge with her peers during her PPA Super Monday Class.

What is Super Monday?

Super Monday is a one-day fundraising event that builds the photographic and business skills of professional photographers. Classes are taught by photographers who host seminars in their studios (or other locations), with the proceeds going to support PPA educational projects. These one-day programs focus on sharing knowledge on topics ranging from lighting, posing and imaging to business, marketing and sales.

Track Star, Funny Dog, Amazing Family, Adorable 2 year old...

The Last few weeks have been crazy busy!  Ok... I admit part of the busy has been keeping my 9 acres worth of grass and weeds under control with all of the rain that we have had!
But I have also had the opportunity to photograph a track star from Baker University, an amazingly talented family of Horse professionals, The cutest, most adorable 2 year old, the funniest dog, a horse and a cat, very cool teenagers and several other families that I hope to feature soon. Oh Yes and I can not forget the most amazing 84 year old great grandmother ever !!

Take a look!!

Tanner - The Track Star from Baker University soon to be a police officer!

Super fun family - the Coopers work and Train Cutting Horses at Rodrock Ranch and the 3 guys are ranked top in the world in competitions.

 Take a look at the dog on the right in these next two images : ) He has quite the personality! When I asked for smiles that is what he did!  : )  These boys are some of the coolest I've met and incredible horse riders!

This is Jake, One of the most adorable 2 year olds I have ever met!
I could have photographed him all day!!

 Jake and his Grandpa Butch. Butch drove clear from Oklahoma to be here for Jakes session. They have a very special relationship!!

Wow is she ever an amazing Great Grandmother!  How many 84 year olds could climb up in my barn window!!

The Farm and Outside Studio and SOME of the grass that I have to mow : ) 

Some of the storm clouds that brought the rain that make the grass grow so fast
keeping me really busy!  : )
