Hey ya'll I'm gonna be in a magazine :)

Well, I'm not, but my pictures are!!! St Louis' Best Bridal called me this week and they are featuring one of my weddings as a love story. This is the 4th time my work had been published in a magazine and I still get geeked out every time!!! Woot Woot! The issue comes out in July - it was the wedding of Jason and Mia - Mia is going to be their cover girl! This is a shot from their wedding.

Just some quick housekeeping stuff -

All of my spring sessions are full. I have nothing open until July. If you are wanting a portrait session (family, engagement, H.S. Seniors, etc..) if you don't book it now I will most likely be full for the year, I am already taking fall bookings.

Speaking of fall, assuming this little baby in my belly comes on time I will be taking an 8 week maternity leave from mid-August to mid-October which wipes out prime fall picture time! I will not be holding any meetings, sessions, etc... during this time. I will be squeezing in a few engagement/family sessions in late October and early November but that's it so if you want a spot call me now.

My Boudoir session has filled up. I do have one extra person wanting them, if I can get 3 more I will book another room and do another date - so if you are interested let me know!

Brides, old and new, if you are looking for an awesome wedding album check out www.life-in-print.com - she is my designer, her prices are incredibly low!!! You can submit your pictures to her on CD and she will create a beautiful coffee table album for you!

Thanks so much!

I just LOVE doing birth stories, especially when they aren't in the middle of the night :) Here is baby Eric and his big sister Emma! He was born on 3/19 and came into the world via emergency c-section. But he his happy and healthy and has a great family to go home with!

On March 10th I had an awesome wedding with Chesley and Nick - sooo fun and sooo photogenic! A big thanks to my second shooter that day Steph (http://www.steviephotography.com/)This shot is the cover of their DVD slideshow.

The guys nailed the "tough look".

The girls nailed the "jump shot".

They also had a sweet get-away car! Congratulations you guys!!!

Okay...who wants nekkid booty pics???

Girls don't miss this opportunity to get your b-pics by two butt kicking photographers!

If we get enough interest we will add a second date in early August!

Sarah and I are both a little wacky so this should be a fun day! We're bringing some music and champagne :)

E-mail me at Kellymanno@yahoo.com if you want a spot!


It's official. The next baby Manno will be a girl! My husband and I are so excited!

Apparently she thinks my uterus is a hammock :)

She is sucking her thumb, look close you can see all 4 knuckles!

This is a fashion shoot I did with Donna, she is my hair-dresser, she just chopped off all my hair and did a great job! If anyone needs a haircut give her a buzz - (www.donnaharrisonline.com)
This is my first time editing with my new program (Lightroom) and I LOVE it - I don't see how I ever lived without it!!! (Thanks Stephen)

My first family session of the season :) This is baby Sophie and some of her cutie pie pictures!
Here's a couple with her and her mama!

FYI - I am already booking into July for my family pictures - because of my pregnancy and an already full schedule I am severely cutting them back! If you're interested I have 4 spots left for family sessions this summer - spring is already full.

I woke up on Feb 17th with about 5 inches of snow on the ground and a wedding to shoot - I couldn't have been more excited :) I'd never shot a snow wedding before but always wanted to! The whole bridal party was game for just about anything so we had a blast!

Congratulations Jenny & Brad!!!

The Girls...

The guys...
Me and my lovely bride Jenny :)

...and a big thank you to my assistant Layne (www.aumannphotography.com) for braving the snow with me!
