Introducing in 2009
I am happy to announce that my business is expanding to include videography for your wedding day. We've spent the last part of 2008 working out the kinks and we are ready to swing into full gear for the 2009 wedding season.

The videography side is headed up by my husband, brother, and sister in law. I am still 100% devoted to your photography on your wedding day.
For Kelly Manno brides 2009 videography pricing is as low as $600 if you book by Jan 31st 2009. After that date all dates will be open to the public and I expect prices to go up as well.

Congratulations Dave and Erika!

I was asked to shoot a live proposal on Christmas eve under the arch, click below to see how it turned out :)

~Sweet Baby Claire~
Well I'm running around like a crazy lady trying to get things in order for Christmas but I couldn't let the holidays come without showing mom and dad a sneak peek of their newborn session with Sweet Baby Claire. Merry Christmas you guys!

Also a quick look at Brittany and Zach's engagement session at the City Museum!

Happy Birthday to me...

So, I have let my birthday come and go silently on this blog for over 2 years. But today is different. Today I am Th-Th-Thirty! I can hardly get the word out! Part of me wants to go crawl in a corner and sob at my lost youth. But the truth is I am thrilled because my life is everywhere I hoped it would be when I turned 30.

I am married to my best friend and our marriage gets stronger every year. I have 2 healthy, happy well adjusted kids and my parents are still alive to see them grow. I have the same girlfriends I had when I was 13 years old and I've met some great new ones along the way. Jesus is my Savior and I love my job. All those things combined make for a pretty cool life.

Here I am 30 years ago today. If they ever have a "fattest baby head" contest I would win. My cheeks are so big they look painful.
Here are some fun facts about my birthday:
I was born Kelly Marie Sumpter on 12/21/78 at 6:05pm.
My mom was in labor for 21 hours.
They brought be home in a Christmas stocking.
My best friend Julie has called and sang to me every year since we were 13.
My husband makes me homemade Italian pizza and a pink cake on my birthday every year.
We let my son Rocky pick my present every year. Last year I got a Spongebob umbrella, this year I got walkie takies :)
Last night I had a very fun Karaoke birthday party with all my friends and family where my husband and I did a rocking rendition of "I got you babe" by Sonny and Cher.
Tonight when my family comes over for pizza and cake my only request was that I have all 30 candles on my cake. Let's hope we don't burn down the house.

Ever since I posted THIS VIDEO of my daughters 1st birthday I've been getting alot of phone calls to cover birthday parties! Last weekend Baby Addison turned 1! I shot her mom and dads wedding as well so it was fun to see the whole family again!

Earlier that day I also squeezed in a quick newborn shoot - welcome to the world baby Elizabeth!

Congrats to Kim & Jim who were married on 11/22!
