Poor Blog!

Dear Blog,
I regret the state of neglect I have put you in. I am a busy college student, photographer, traveler, friend, daughter, sister, aunt, employee, and business woman. Please forgive me and prepare for potential neglect in the near future as well.
My website stays SO ON TOP OF ALL OF MY RECENT SHOOTS and it is just giving you a rest!

And don't forget, an apple a day...well, you know what they say!

Collin is 2!!

Oh goodness....the look of I-just-can't-believe-it on Collin's face in the direction of that big TWO on his cake says it all. Two years already?!
My nephew Collin's birthday was May 31st, right before I left for my trip.
There was a pool party.
There were toys.

There were lots of hugs and smiles for Grandma.

And there was lots of fun had with good friends!

KADY! Senior 2010

Greetings from Poland!
It isn't often that I blog a senior shoot from across the world so you my friend, are a lucky girl ;)
This is the gorgeous Kady. Kady brought the most colorful wardrobe and rockin' "serious face" to our shoot.
We had fun with this turquoise wall outside of her church's Destiny Center. Kady's mom contacted me after seeing the Gillispie family photos and talking to Alicia about my photography at church. Love that!
We squeezed out the last bit of light from the golden hour for some fun photos in the grass with a little bit of flare.
How stunning does she look in this vintage dress!?!
And yet another great "junk yard" find. I swear they just WANT me to find them! Love when I can find an angle I haven't tried before! about great finds! This was the session of many chairs! Not your typical alley find here..this was beyond exciting!

Kady loved spending the evening with you and your mom! Have a great senior year :) *See the whole shoot here!!**

Nathan + Shannon

Sometimes it just so happens that two people I know and love individually date and make me love them even more! I have known Nathan most of my life and Shannon for a little over a year...and now they are dating! Look how cute they walk down a road together! It's ridiculous :)

These photos were taken at Nathan's grandparents old place. Nathan actually grew up at the bottom of the hill behind them...
...and his name (and all the siblings and cousins too!) is written on this barn door with spray paint...

I have wanted to photograph FISHING for sooo long! When I spoke with Shannon about our session I knew they would be the perfect couple for it.
We went just down the road to my family's friend (Nathan's too!) Rodger's pond to fish the night away.

And what could be a better way to end this session than a BIG OL' FISH! haha :)
Had a great time you two!

They have done it again! They have accomplished being absolutely adorable in their family photos once more......
Soon this trio will be FOUR!!! Miss Karli will be joining us in late June and I cannot wait to photograph her little baby hands, toes, rolls, etc. when I get back to the states in July.
(OH YEAH, p.s. I am going to Europe for a month and I leave on Monday! Ow-Ow!)

How I do love me a lil man in a sweater vest!
AND...this is my super cute "new" kid's chair. I haven't decided if I am going to repaint it yet. I like the aged look...but it would be so perfect in red or turquoise....

Breann SENIOR 09

I'm back! And with another exciting shoot to introduce. This is Breann :)
Breann is the little sister of Trent, one of my best friends. Trent and I were friends in high school and we now both go to college in Warrensburg. I remember being around Bre at Trent's Super Bowl parties over the years and tutoring her 8th grade art class. BUT NOW she is graduating! And asked me to take her senior photos. Yay!
It was freezing outside this day! This particular weekend was full of obstacles, weather obstacles! It rained (see puddles above), it snowed, and it was COLD! Despite the less than favorable conditions Bre rocked her pics....
Flowering trees were an added bonus.

We planned to get a few more when Bre comes to Warrensburg next so stay tuned. Thanks again Breann, I loved taking your Senior pictures :)
