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

A Rarity... Shots of my Only Boy | Kansas City MO Metro Area Children Photographer

After taking pictures of the little girls all week, I decided I really wanted to do a photo shoot with my son. He's very rarely around when my camera's out. So Mommy asked nicely and he agreed. And man did he please his momma. He was posing, working the camera, and piercing the camera with his eyes. He had me cracking up the way he was movin around, like he was a professional model. But of course he has had a camera in his face since day one, he should be used to it by now.

And since 4 out of 5 children have all done photos for me, Kayleigh wanted to do some also. Here are a couple of hers.

18 Months Old... and Baby Sister.

Today I wanted to get some photos of Lilly to mark her being 18 months old as of today. I can't believe she is almost 2 years old. Time flies so quickly. She is already practicing those Terrible Twos. She has defiently became her own person. She is sweet, stubborn, onry (she is the onriest one so far of the bunch), independent, a snuggly cuddler, an awesome little dancer, and a good big and little sister to her siblings. She loves music, having her hair brush and shaking her head no, no matter what question you ask her. I love her so much. She is and always will be our Lilly Bean. (Yes I will call her that 'til the day she leaves for college!)

And then here are a couple of baby sister Emily for fun.

Impromtu Session with Miss Maddie | Kansas City MO Metro Area Children Photographer

I bought some new fabric a few weeks back and I just finally got them out today. I laid them out put Emily on one just to try to and get a couple decent shots of her and test out the new background. I got a couple of shots, she got fussy and I started to put my stuff away. The next thing I know Maddie was following me saying "momma, take a picture of me." Of course I wasnt going to turn down her offer. We played for a little bit and got some really good shots. I must say I love the new backgrounds. They give the photos a sort of vintage/retro look and I'm diggin it! Not to mention I had a gorgeous model to work with. Here are her photos and the one decent one I got of Emily.
