Beautiful Weather Everyday

Our attitudes play an important role in our day to day mood and well being.  It all depends on how we want to look at the world and view it that day.  Me, I love when it’s warm, but I love when it’s rainy.  Yesterday was hot and windy.  It made for an interesting session, but one that had a definite uniqueness to it.  With younger children you can only photograph as long as they will allow you.  You have to work quickly, be happy and just go with the flow.  This is one of my favorites from yesterday.

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

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.

Did you see this?

I love this little guy’s hair!  Ok, deep down I may be a little jealous just because I haven’t had any for quite some time now.  But seriously, this is cute.

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!

What a Cutie!

I love it when I get cute little kids into the studio! They make my job so easy!

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
