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

Recent Ones of my Kiddos

Lately I've been doing a few Portfolio Buliding sessions and posting them. So I thought since I'm done editing and posting those I would post some recent ones of my little ones.

Lilly is getting so big. She is already 6 months old. The time has just flown by. She's scooting around, almost sitting up on her one completely, and eating jar food. She is such a doll, she just keeps getting more and more beautiful everyday.

Maddie is coming up on being 2 and 1/2 years old, but I swear you wouldn't think so. She is so smart and advanced. She keeps me entertained as she is my little comedian... there's never a dull moment with her around.
Kayleigh just started 1st grade. Her cheerleading has started back up again. And now she wants to be in Girl Scouts. Can you tell this girl always has to be on the go? She has so much personality and it shows in everything she does! (Including this picture... this is SO her!)

And there is my only boy Dylan. He just started 3rd grade this year and joined a local Soccer leauge. He also wants to go back into Cub Scouts. He is getting so old and is so full of life and positivity. When we did his shoot we included his soccer ball to "celebrate" his first year in soccer.

Baby Miley's Preview | Kansas City MO Area Photographer

This little beauty is Miley and is a month old. She was a trooper even though I'm sure she didnt want me in her face with the camera. I enjoyed the shoot and even got to enjoys some cuddling afterwords. Here is her sneak peak.

An Attempt

At trying to get my 2 year old to pose for me. It didn't go as I planned. For some reason I got this crazy notion that she would pose and smile pretty for mommy. -- Wrong! I kept clickin' away in hopes of getting a good shot, these are what I came up with. Cooperable or not, she's still my little beauty.

A Couple of my New Favorite Things

I finally broke down and bought some seamless background paper (just a small roll)... love it, favorite thing # 1. Today I got it out (after having it for little over a week now) to get some pictures with it, and got favorite thing #2.. this new picture of Lilly. Needless to say, I gotta get me some more seemless paper and play some more.

Lilly - 5 months already! by you.

And while I'm at it here is a few recent shots. I got these using a "poor mans macro lens" (the end lens from a pair of binoculars taped to my lens kit [check out how to do it yourself here: http://digital-photography-school.com/forum/how-i-took/69750-binocular-trick-no-macro-lens-no-problem.html])

I love photographing flowers by you.

Some kind of... flower ? by you.

My Family

My Family, originally uploaded by stephgallipeau.
Its was a lot harder than it shows through in the picture to get this shot. Thank god for my remote. I was quite proud that I did so well without actually being in front of the camera. I was also a little impressed with myself with the pose. =) Anywho Id just like to say I love my family... they put up with so much of my mess when it comes to my photography, and god love them for that!

2 Years

"If your brother will give us his okay, will you give me a chance?" - the rest is [a mess] of history. I fell in love with my brothers' best friend and found my soul mate. No one thought we would last, no one thought we should be together. And they felt they had the right reasons; he was 18 and I was 23 with 3 children. Heck, that even gave me hesitation at first, but something stronger was pulling us together... fate. And 2 years later those same people who thought we wouldn't even make it a year can see we truely are perfect for each other. Daniel honestly is my other half. No other person has completed me and made as happy as he has. There were a couple times in my past that I thought I had found "the one" but no one has come close in comparison to Daniel. We have the same personality with enough difference to keep both of us on our toes. We make each others life fun, we put our family above everything else and we dont care what any one else thinks. This is honestly the happiest I have ever been in my life and people close to me can see that. "There is someone for everyone" is what people say and I just happen to be one of those lucky ones that found my perfect "someone."


I love you and I am so glad that everything worked out the way it did two years ago. Without you in my life I don't know where I would be. In just these 2 short years we have come so far. Even though I had a life before you, it seems like you were always there. Maybe because we were meant to be and God knew we would find our way to each other. I've loved in the past, but I've never loved anyone as much as I do you. This may only be our 2nd year together, but I know there will be so many more and I can't wait for each day of our future. You truely are my soul mate and I think you know that! --I la u-- Forever Yours, Steph

"Once in a while right in the middle of an ordinary life love gives you a fairytale."

Daddy - Daughter Photo Shoot

So for Father's Day, I took Danny and Lilly out and did a photo shoot with them. I just love my models. The whole day it was cloudy and looked like it could storm any minute. At one point it was even sprinkling, they were good sports and we just went on with the shoot anyways. Once we got home, guess what... yup the sprinkling stopped and the sun came out bright and pretty! Just my luck. Oh well, I didnt have to fight the harsh sun while trying to get my 4 month old teething baby to stop chewing on her thumb long enough to look at the camera! That in itself was hard enough. Well without any futher ado, here they are.

A storyboard of a few of the shots I took. [Yes he's acting like she's a football] =)

Here are a few of just the hubby, I tried some different processing on a couple of these. Hope they look okay.

So a fellow photographer found this site and shared it with us. I thought it was pretty cool, so I did a "word cloud" of some of the words I think describe me. Check it out and check out the site and make your own. http://www.wordle.net/

Wordle: Myself

This other one is just words from my blog. Turned out kinda cool, looks like a bow!
