Laura Rhoades is one of my sweetest, dearest friends.
I feel kind of funny calling her a friend since I'm almost old enough to be her mom. More like a much older sister.
Anywho, Laura is a photographer from Wichita who specializes in female portraiture.
lovely portraiture for women is the name of her business and website.
We've talked for several years about Laura doing a photo shoot for me and my girlfriends/daughters/sister/mom...or anyone else willing to show up with me.
We finally made it happen this fall.
I should have done it much sooner.
She has an incredible way of making her clients feel at ease and beautiful.
That's probably because that's what she is - at ease and beautiful.
Here are my favorite shots from our shoot with her.
