Fun at Smithville Lake

Posted by on Jul 18, 2007 in Family Portraits | No Comments

Last night we headed up to Smithville lake to take some pictures of these awesome kids. We’ve known these guys forever so it seems (maybe it’s really only been 7 years). Anyway, here are a few of my favorites from the shoot.

First up, the baby, Isabella… she’s not really a baby anymore though…


We met them when Gabbie was only a year old and soon she’s gonna be all grown up.

Celestino, such a little man…
Tonino, almost a teenager (scary!)

Mia… isn’t she gorgeous?

Aaron and his beautiful wife Katie

And a group shot!


We love you guys!

Celeste, Zandra, & Erin

After Juliana’s shoot on Sunday, we headed over to take pics of these three cuties. It’s a good thing I brought my A game, because Celeste was tough to crack. But once I figured out that jumping karate kicks with crazy faces made her laugh, we were good to go 🙂 Here are a few pics…

Celeste smiling (finally!)

And baby sister Zandra

And cousin Erin

Juliana

We’ve known Juliana’s parents for a couple of years now (has it really been that long, Angela?). We did their engagement pics and then their wedding early last year, and now we have the pleasure of taking pictures of their beautiful daughter. I’m telling you, they are going to be in trouble when she gets older…


Three family shoots…

We had the opportunity the past two days to shoot three different (and fun!) families. We were out at Loose Park yesterday and the Nelson today… here are a few shots from each…


Drew & Selena

We got the chance to walk around the Jazz District and City Market with Drew & Selena the other night. They were a blast. I don’t think I got too many serious pics. We actually shot their wedding last August, so some of you might recognize them.

I would also like to let everyone know that Drew and Selena have started their own video company. Drew does weddings, music videos, short films, school plays, basically anything you would ever want recorded. You can check out some more about them here. It’s always fun when you meet quality vendors that you can recommend to other brides.

Anyway, here are some of my favorites.


This is one of my favorite pics ever! The light was perfect for the shadow.


Hey baby, what ya doin’ later?

And now for the jumping pics. Drew seemed to want to jump off of everything he possibly could. Man, he’s got some hops on him!


Kick-flip off the wall!

You just can’t stop him!

Selena even got in on the action.

Sick of it all, she finally just pushed him off.

Tasha's Maternity Pics

Sorry it took me so long to post this Tasha! I know you are eagerly awaiting a sneak peek at your pics from last night. We were really excited to do Tasha’s maternity pics, especially since they didn’t have any done with Emma (we didn’t know them back then:). Thanks Tasha for suffering through the unbearable heat (our A/C was not working yesterday, but THANKFULLY, we got it fixed today). Here are a few pics from our session…

I love this one… It totally shows Tasha’s fun and happy personality!

Isn’t Emma so sweet?

They don't get any cuter than this!

Let me tell you, I just LOVE babies! Yesterday, we took pics of Ava. She was the flower girl (and niece) of Shannon, whose wedding we did back in April. She is just so darn cute! She was so good, just smiling and laughing the whole time. So, without further ado, a few pics of this beautiful little girl…


Rain, Rain, Rain…

So, today we FINALLY got to do our shoot with Jenna & Noah, some of our favorite little kids (of course, we have lots of favorites!). Four rainy days, a busted lip, chicken pox, and two months later, here we are today. I kid you not, we were on our way to the park, and suddenly it just starts pouring rain! So, we just gave up and decided to head to Union Station and we had a lot of fun! Here are a few pics from today… Noah is growing up so fast and Jenna is just as sweet as she looks 🙂


Baby David

Last night, we had the opportunity to shoot our brand new nephew (11 days old to be exact!). He is so sweet and cute. Our niece Emily also came over and we got a few shots of her running around and playing with her cousin Max. I will definitely say it was crazy around our house last night with 4 little ones running around (well, 2 running around and 2 just hanging out)!

Isn’t he sweet?

He slept the whole time!

My favorite niece! (She’s also my only niece 🙂

Jenny’s Bat Mitzvah

Posted by on May 15, 2007 in Family Portraits | No Comments

Saturday night we headed out to the Hyatt Regency downtown for Jenny’s Bat Mitzvah party. What a blast! We did her older brother Matt’s Bar Mitzvah last year and had a lot of fun, so we were really excited to have the opportunity to do Jenny’s this year. These events are crazy… a huge group of 12 and 13 year olds partying all night! And we were excited to run into the catering coordinator there, Sarah, who we went to high school with. Kansas City is such a small city:).
