Evida is One + One on the way!

Evida is One + One on the way!

I have a special bond with these folks…and for good reason, they’re family! Louis is Brian’s cousin, and we have had the honor of watching their family grow…and grow! We got together on a gloomy day to snap a few shots of their lovely little lady, Evida to celebrate her first birthday…oh, and the beautiful baby bump on Amy, too! They’ll be expecting the next addition to the Fantasma clan at the end of the summer. I’m so glad that all of the people around me keep having babies!…(it makes it so I don’t have to have any more!)

Fun fact: These guys also own Paradise Locker Meats in Trimble, MO, and they just happen to be one of our graphic design and web clients! Check out their newest logo, on sweet Evi’s shirt toward the end of the post. Talk about promotion…taking a photo of a baby…wearing our designs. She’s a good little model!

Thanks, guys for coming out and playing with me! I had such a blast capturing your lovely growing family (oh, and thanks again for the ridiculously delicious steaks!!).

Mauk Family 2012

I have known this lovely little mama for over a decade, and couldn’t have been more thrilled when she set up a session for when she was home visiting family for Thanksgiving. Little Valentine was not sure about me…I am crazy after all. Eventually she warmed up…and found me hilarious, which worked out nicely.
It was one of those few freezing days that we have had, but we made it worth the discomfort by  making some super fun memories.

So excited for you and your new addition! This growing family thing looks good on you guys!
Thanks for  hanging out with me in the cold…again…so worth it!

Keith & Kayla: Parents to be!

Our dear sweet friends, Kayla and Keith are expecting a sure to be handsome and wonderful baby boy in a few short weeks.
I can’t tell you how excited I am to see their hearts grow more than they ever knew possible when little Witten arrives.

Seriously…I am so excited about this baby.

Thank you, friends for allowing me to capture these last few quiet moments with you. We love you both so much!
