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

My "Little" 8 Year Old

My "Little" 8 Year Old, originally uploaded by stephgallipeau.
Wrote on 5.18.09 : At this time (about 10am) 8 years ago, I laid in a hospital bed in labor 17 years old and terrified! I really had no idea how I was going to take care of a child, I was still one myself. But 9 months earlier I had to make the biggest decision of my life when I found out I was pregnant at 16. And if I had to go back and do it again, I wouldnt change my decision. Yeah, life hasn't been easy, but it hasnt been terribly bad either. I know that I was brought into this world to become a mom and even though I had a very early start to motherhood I have loved EVERY moment of it. Eight years ago when I sat in that bed I had so much support. A lot of which I still have to this day and I am so thankful for. My parents have been my backbone (even with the sighs I hear everytime i say "guys, Im pregnant again!") No matter who has come and gone in my life they have never given up on me and im sure there were times when they could have. And this is what I have tried to do and plan on always doing for my four beautiful children. I have learn what it is to be a good parent from them and I hope they know how much I do appreciate them. Eight years ago I had been alive in this world for 17 years but it wasn't until 6 o' clock pm on May 18th 2001 when I first held my goregous baby boy Dylan that I began living. That kid is one of the smartest, most creative, sweetest little boys I've ever know and I am so proud to be his mom. I am greatful everyday I wake up to his cute smile and have to yell at him to stop watching cartoons and get ready for school! He's my only boy and no matter how much he can drive me crazy.. I love that boy more than anything else. And within the 8 years that I gave birth to him I have given him 3 sisters whom I love just as equally. I have everything I want in life. I have four amazing kids, an amazing husband - who if I might remind you is only the biological father to one of my children but loves and take care of the other 3 as his own and considers them just as much his children as his own- and I have a great family. I couldn't be happier. And it all started with a scared teenager laying in a hospital bed holding a beautiful bundle of joy who was named Dylan Wesley B. Mommy loves you bubba. I hope you have a wonderful birthday!
