August - school starts and more wonderful customers

Some more pages in the as you grow books. These leather albums are so popular because you can put the pictures in them each month and take them home. As the child grows and we make new pages, you just bring the album back!

This family was tons of fun. We went to Unity Village and found some really outdoorsy spots to take gobs of great pictures.

How sweet is big brother and little sister?
And she is quite the little miss smiliey in the roses. One of my favorite shots with little girls to be sure.

Newborn boy with mit and ball - a timeless favorite.

My word this little girl is darling.

Then plop brother in there - CUTE!

Or just hold brother upside down. LOL.

This sweet princess is a mover and a smilier! I just love documenting her as she grows.

And can you believe it? SHe is one!

All smilies!

Oh my gosh - I am totally truthful when I tell you that this little girls parents did NOT give her a mohawk - seriously this is how her hair grows!!!!

And here is what it looks like when you comb it down.

The expression is what gets me. :)

Baby in veggie bowl - a heavily requested shot also.

One of our signatures - birthday pictures include eating through a real cake that we provide. These are COOL pictures!

I love the feet. How timeless is this?

Motion shots are great too.

More Shots of beautiful Models at Patricia Stevens Modeling Agency. LOTS OF FUN!

Sweet Gabriella. She was only with us for a short time - and every moment was a treasure.

Gabriella and her loving family.

She really is an angel.

Family pictures at James A reed - you just cant go wrong!

The boys are so sweet!

Something about the backs of kids - it leaves so much up to the imagination.

Thier fronts are cute too! This little joy had so much spirit!

I LOVVVVVVE newborns! So beautiful!
And so easy to move (once you get them asleep)

The most precious porcelian face - seriously like a doll! This is the little girl that comes up first on my slideshow on the home page - under the running sink water - how she has grown!

One of my favorite customers - mom always has great ideas and helps me grow and stretch myself. Nicest people too!

July Customers - So many beautiful people!

One year goes soooo fast! Its fun to mark it with a collage. This collage is the one that comes with the As You Grow one year plan that you can read about on our main website. Such a beautiful Girl!

The pages in the as you grow plan document each month or visit and this page documents this little guys first visit. So sweet!

Senior season is upon us! This senior was an absolute delight to photograph. She let us put her in the water and drag her all over Kansas City.

How beautiful and fun loving is she?

Every once in a while, you run into a customer with an animated child who just can't take a bad picture. That was the case with this little tyke. She is a HAM!

Its that time again to photograph my favorite little customer in Florida. This time Greg got to come along and took some spectacular shots of him and his parents new pool! His parents own the largest pool company in Florida - Orlando Pools and they have quite a beautiful pool in thier backyard!

There are more pictures of thier pool and beautiufl bulldogs below.

Love those little hineys!

This sweetheart was really looking for something through the window - I think it was daddy on the other side! Giggle.

How cute is a little baby in a swimsuit!

Or naked.

Family pictures out at James A Reed are always a hit. Unfortunatley, on this day it was VERY sunny!

On this day, we just used our studio front yard - and luckily it was overcast - no squinting today!

Sometimes the little ones show a personality that is unmistakeable. This little one does just that.

Same little guy - Happy in mommys hands!

One of my favorite shots, I havent taken it for a while - the greecian urn with grapes. Oh goodness I forgot how much fun it was!

We have LOTS of Missou and Huskers fans around here!

Someone is VERY happy about the TUTU!

My new Barnwood clubhouse background is perfect for this little guy.

You know it helps when you and mommy are beautiful people!

Cooking up something special for dinner tonight!


A Royals fan! (there are some left out there? LOL)

Same sweet baby.

I can ALMOST walk!

I love my mommy.

Some of our Patricia Stevens models. Our monthly shoot is a highlight for me. Beautiful girls, willing models - LOTS of fun!

And then there is miss Sydney - I CANNOT believe how big she is!
My best friend Angie had this little angel April 1st and I have been honored to be her photographer (hey who else?) What a delight her whole family is to us.

Oh my gosh - is it me or is this kid CUTE????

So Miss Sydneys family owns a fireworks stand or two - so we had to get these shots!

Here is a few shots of the pool and our florida clients bulldogs!

Okay so the spot here by the bottom left is a hottub and the patio is so cool - like an island oasis, then see the waterfall? Behind it is a little cave that goes all the way through and it lights up at night!

Aren't these dogs sweet?

A few more Patricia Stevens models - I got to go twice this month because she was having a class. These girls are so open to new things!

Well - we get guys too, but my faves are the girls. :)

Lots of fun!

This guy liked to be creative - and most of the models do have an artisitc creative side, so it works out nicely for me.

The laundry line is one of my favorite shots. A signature shot really, though I got it from a studio called Blue Moon years ago. I have changed and perfected it and definately made it my own. People call all time and ask if I am the studio that does "that laundry line shot".

And YES he is really hanging there - its not photoshop - I have been doing this shot for years - BEFORE photoshop.

Look how much fun he is havin! I love getting the little ones (and big ones) to laugh - that just is the icing on the cake for me.

Absolutely Beautiful family. You know it's getting to that time to be doing the whole christmas picture thing!

Everyone loves the custom color - and there is nothing like a childs reflection in the mirror.

Or a little girl on her very own ballet bar.
