About Me

My photo
Kansas City, Missouri, United States
Welcome to my blog. I'm Stephanie and this is my photography. I am a daughter, sister, aunt, friend, wife to an amazing man, a mother a five onry kids and a photographer. Very rarely will you find me without my camera or a line of children in tow. My photography is my passion. I get my inspriation from my family and try to portray that into my work. I love photographing the innocence of a child, love of a family, or the randomness of an object that catches my eye. Photography makes me happy and it relieves some of the stress of my hectic life. I'm not in it for the big bucks because I think it's crazy to charge an outrages price to capture someones memories. Im in it for just that, capturing memories, both mine and others. So sit back and hopefully enjoy my photography. And if you live in my area and would like to set up a session; email me at stephgallipeau@yahoo.com. Prices and Avaliablity can be found in a link at the bottom of the page. Also leave me some comments I'd like to hear what you think! Enjoy! & Find me on Facebook http://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Stephanie-Gallipeau-Photography/122803949512

Holiday Chaos is Over!

So with xmas finally over I'm repeaing the benifits. I finally got a DSLR camera (Nikon D40) and couldn't be happier. I love it. I have already taken down our tree and decorations in order to have some room to shoot some photos. The kids have their new things keeping them busy, as well as the hubby, so it gives me plenty of time to practice with my new camera! Here are some shots I've taken with it so far.

I will figure this all out eventually! =)

Whats keeping the hubby occupied while I'm clicking away.

...And then of course the kiddos!

Look, I got catchlights!!! Yeay!

When Laundry gets put Aside

Instead of doing the housework that needs to be done I've been trying to get some good "christmasy" photos. I would like to get some of the snow that we've got in the last few days, but the only time I've ventured out in that butt cold weather was to see my best friends new baby. *Congrats to her btw! However I have managed to do some inside shots. I did get a pretty decent one of my tree last night. I love the star burst effect you get from the lights when you play with the aperture. I also got a couple others that I really liked; so here are a few that I've taken over the last couple of days. Enjoy!

Getting to Know me.

Just a little info to get to know me; my family is my life. I am a wife to an amazing husband and we have 3 beautiful children (see photo) and are blessed to have another little girl due in March '09. I am a stay at home mom; that is my full time job. My creative outlets such as photography, writing, and my keyboard are how I keep my sanity most days. I have a busy wonderful life and wouldn't change a thing. I have always been interested in photography, being in front and behind the camera. For the longest time I've wanted to start my own photography business. At the moment I'm trying to learn everything I can and work up to getting better equipment to expand my oppurtunities. Right now I do mostly pictures of my children and family and friends to get some practice. Hopefully soon I can get some people outside that comfort zone to practice on. For the most part this blog will be to show my work. But occasionally I might rant and rave. Either way don't be afraid to let me know if you see something you like!
