Leah & Adalynn, Loose Park, Kansas City MO, Babies & Kids Photography

We met these two adorable sisters, Leah and Adalynn, at Loose Park for a special photography session while we were back in Kansas City for the weekend!
Leah is 4. She enjoys being outside playing, looking at flowers and picking up any bug she can find. She loves being around animals, especially going to Deanna Rose. She also loves to dress up, get her nails painted and pretending to be a princess or ballerina. She has her parents ‘Introduce’ her as either “Princess Leah” or “the ballerina” while she does a little dance. She’s very loving and kind hearted, she is always giving hugs and telling her parents how much she loves them.
Adalynn just turned two! Little Adalynn loves books, just like her big sister. Before bed, they cuddle up & read together. Adalynn loves doing everything that big sissy does. She just adores her. Adalynn definitely keeps everyone on their toes, always getting into things, but it’s hard to stay mad because her smile just melts Momma! Her mother, Devon, calls Adalynn her miracle baby. She was born with a congenital heart defect called Tetraology of Fallot. They had no idea anything was wrong until they heard a heart murmur hours after birth. At 7 months old she underwent open heart surgery at Children’s Mercy Hospital. Worst and most scary 10 days for this precious family. She had a few complications after surgery, but Devon knew she was in God’s hands. Before going into surgery, Devon searched the Bible for a verse that would remind her that God is in control, He has Addy, and He was going to get her through the surgery. And, she also wanted a verse that Addy can look at when she gets older and know that her God will be with her wherever she goes. God led Devon to Joshua 1:9 and that’s her verse for her precious miracle baby.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the Lord your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
I was so pleased with the work of The Mullikin Studio! Jeff did an amazing job photographing my two little girls & bringing out their personalities. He was very personable and easy to work with. Jenilee was very professional and did a wonderful job editing our photos. She was prompt in answering all my questions & had our photos to us in remarkable timing. We could not have asked for a better experience. – Devon
