I have been waiting patiently for 3 years for one of my birth clients to have twins, and momma Holly pulled through for me :) Here are her beautiful girls Anna and Kate.
I know most people love baby toes, and yes they are cute, but I am a sucker for little baby lips! I love Anna's litte mouth in this photo.

I love the literal meaning of this one "They have their hands full" Holly and Ryan you are so blessed I am so happy for you guys! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your new babies!

A very fun wedding and 2 very special families!

I am trying desperately to get caught up on blogging! So first a couple of quick shots from Dan and Kayla's wedding on a beautiful fall day earlier this month! On this day I was assisted by the very talented Von! She got this rockin flower shot and much more!

Oh and my sweet baby Jack! Jack was one of my birth stories over 2 years ago and he is one of my favorite little boys ever, I could just take him home with me! I was also there when his little brother Issaac was born last year! Together they make the cutest little pair.And another very special family! Big Boy Jake was also a former birth story client, I love his big ole' cheeks I could just eat him up!Check him out giving big sissy a big smooch!And his beautiful big sister Kate!

* Look below more pics added!*
All I'm gonna say is....we had too much fun!

I would like to thank everyone from the bottom of my heart for coming out and making my second "Shot Party" a huge success! I do this for you guys as much as I do it for myself. Networking is a huge part of this business and we are blessed to have so many kick-butt photographers in St. Louis! More to come on this later!

So what is a shot party? A shot party is my baby, my brainchild. It was an idea I had a long time ago of hosting these "seminars" if you will...where some of the best photographers in St Louis just get together and shoot for fun. We're suppose to be learning from each other...but spend way more time gossiping!

This time we were blessed to have 2 group demonstrators who happen to be some of the best photographers I know - Alisha Clark and Luke Walker. They did a direct sun demo and it rocked!

This is what our models had following them all day!Our first couple is Amy and Andrew, they are some of my wedding clients for next year. After I shot their engagement session this Spring and saw how comfortable they were in front of the camera I knew they would be perfect for this!Then our night shoot was with Laura and Chris! I shot their wedding in September her dress rocked plus they were super cute so I knew they would do a great job too! We has so much fun, thank you to everyone who came and our models, and a big thank you to Alisha and Luke! Hope to see you all next year!

Attention! If you are a new/entry level photographer trying to get your feet wet in this business I am going to have a really neat opportunity for you in February! The details are still being worked out but if you e-mail me at Kellymanno@yahoo.com I will put you on a list of people I will be contacting in January!

Michelle and Adam!

Michelle and Adam are one of my many awesome 2009 wedding clients! Their engagement session rocked so I can't wait for their wedding day~ They brought along their doggies for the shoot and I LOVE this first one below!

OKay, so pretty much I have family sessions coming out my ears :) Here is a quick look at 4 of them!!!

First is sweet baby Brooke :) I shot her birth over 2 years ago so it was fun to see how big she is getting.

Next is Jenny and her family! I was suppose to shoot their wedding but they changed their mind and eloped! So we opted for some family photos instead! And the Herman family! Big Boy Eric is also a former birth story client, but mom and dad are from my hometown so I know them from good old Granite City!Look at those perfect little freckles!And Big Boy Will! Yet ANOTHER former birth story client....I'm starting to notice a trend here :)Bang! Bang! Got you sucka!
