Severe Pain

I have severe pain right now. It's the holidays. I love family photos. I have a new(er) addition to my family. And this amazing girl is too far away to take our photos.

While I was in CA this summer, Lorie took pictures of Lil Major and me. And I LOVE them. See my header for one example. But, we don't have any good shots of us as a family, and I want some, NOW!

So, you Kansas readers (all 3 of you), do you have any suggestions for me? I love Lorie's style - she find the most amazing backdrops in just the most every day things. I don't want the Portrait Innov thing where you all sit in front of a blue backdrop. Oh, and I also don't want to have to choose 3 poses from 100. I want a CD of all the images. (I don't ask for much, do I?)

What do ya got for me??

We love Camera Angles ( They have Childrens Highlights were they do different themes every two weeks for a pretty reasonable price. They are over at 21st and Woodlawn. I know that Trey Allen Photography also does Children's Highlights and he is across from Maize Middle School. Camera Angles did our family pics and they turned out fabulous! Expensive, but well worth it.

I've been thinking what a beautiful picture could be made in all the yellow maple leaves in my back yard. I love those made in natural settings. You could wear a Santa hat.

Thanks for the suggestion, Heather. The expensive word scared me more than anything! =) I've been spoiled by Lorie who is not only amazing, but affordable! And I really want do take our pictures outside, not in a studio.

Shell - those pics of you guys are AMAZING! your little girlie is SO cute!

Lins - there's got to be an affordable AND good photog out there, right???

My friend Maria is a photographer. Here is her website:

The number is on the Contact Us page. She is local, and friendly, and you have met her over coffee with me! Ani and Ele would love to come and play with Lil Major anytime, too.

She did our wedding photos, and did the best job with our engagement photos before that. She is really good at family groupings, and great with little kids.

Oh Chelf, I TOTALLY forgot about that. Thanks for reminding me. I'll get in touch with her.
