Portraits

What makes up a portrait.  Well for one, there needs to be someone in the photo.  You.  You make a portrait so special.  Without you, it would just be a photo of a background, a place outdoors, or the grass or rocks around.  You give a portrait life, you make it important.  You make a portrait an heirloom.  Something your family will treasure for generations.  You give the portrait a meaning to exist.  Without you, there is no purpose of a portrait.

What do I specialize in.  Portraits of you.  417-894-0230

Don’t let Fall Pass You By.

Fall is here.  Soon the beautiful leaves won’t be.  Don’t hesitate, get your photos done before the weather turns cold.  Get the beautiful fall colors while they are going on outdoors.  Get them done in time for Christmas!  So many reasons to get your photos done now!  Do I have to list them all?

Welcome to August

Well, technically it is August 2nd.  And this month….yes….School starts up again.  Where does the time go?  I can’t even believe how fast it has gone.  I still want to take a trip if I can.  One last big trip with the family before it’s back to the books.  Any ideas where I should go?  Well while you think it over, take a look at this recent smash the cake baby session!

Little Carson

If you saw the video you’ll realize how cute this kid is! 🙂 Just had to share some of my favorites from his mini session.

Happy March :)

Aren’t you excited that we are finally into the month of March?  I am!  I can’t wait for winter to go away and warmer weather to grace our presence!  Warmer weather means one thing for me…outdoor photo shoots!  I’ve got some great locations lined up this year, so if you are in need of family photos, children photos or want to update your headshots for your portfolio just hit me up!  Also, I’m still looking for 2011 Senior Models, so if you will be a senior for the year 2011 from Kickapoo, Glendale, Hillcrest, Central, Parkview, Willard, Ash Grove, Buffalo, Strafford, Branson, Republic, Nixa or Ozark just check out this link HERE for more information on our Senior Model Program!

With that information our of the way, say hello to Courtney.  Once the weather warms up a bit you’ll be seeing some more photos of her.  Until then, Happy March 1st!

Weekend Update

Just had to share a photo for the weekend. Hope your Valentine’s day is as wonderful as you had hoped!

Website

I hope you’ve enjoyed the work you’ve seen over the past several years!  There are many reasons why I love photography and I hope there are many reasons you keep coming back here to see new and updated images.  One of the things that I’ve failed you in the past few years is actually keeping my “non-blog” website updated with current images.  For that I apologize.  I don’t know what got into me, but today, with a little inspiration and motivation from a good friend, I’ve updated all the galleries with New and Current Work!!!

Go take a look, see what you think. Maybe you know some of those individuals, maybe you don’t, either way, roam around the site and see what you find new.  The site is still under construction but fully functional at the same time!  I have an amazing web & graphic designer at Modtype.  Be sure to stop by his site as well to see the great things he’s designed over the years.

As many of you know, and if some of you don’t I also have a fan page HERE.  Feel free to become a fan and see more work there.  As I spend more time on Facebook, I try to update photos there with different things then the photos that are posted here.  So if you see something here, chances are there are some more on Facebook that you haven’t seen.

Also, something worth noting.  We are currently looking for High School Senior Models for our New Model Program for the class of 2011.  We can still capture your 2010 senior photos, but models are limited to the class of 2011 and a select few from the class of 2012.  If you are interested in applying see our Page HERE.

Another page I would like you to look at if you have the time is that of our testimonial page.  HERE.  We love our clients and we love to hear what they have to say.  You as visitors or clients are always welcome to leave feedback on the site, on the photography or just a comment to let us know you’re having a good day!

Have a Great Weekend

The Weekend is here

Time to rest and relax from such a busy week.  I’ll share a quick photo and let you get back to those Turkey leftovers for lunch!

Oh BABY!!!

So while in Nashville I of course brought the laptop as well as some images to prepare and share with everyone here and every one in internet land! So the image I wanted to share today was one that I just fell in love with when I saw it on the computer! This little 1 year old came into the studio for a “Smash the cake” portrait session. Let me tell you that he wasted NO time in going for the cake and believe me, he got it Everywhere! No worries, it was easy clean up but he was so dang cute! A shout out to Michelle for bringing him in for some portraits! Don’t forget to follow me on twitter @jonesphotog.

Take a look at him!

Babies are our Future

Just a quick update to share, at the time, a mother to be. Her baby arrived earlier this week, and I am looking forward to getting to photograph her.
