Columbia, MO, Maternity Session: Amadi & Shaun

Columbia, MO, Maternity Session: Amadi & Shaun

Life is about to get very exciting for Amadi and Shaun! Our dear friends are expecting their first child very soon, and we were thrilled to capture maternity photos before their little one’s arrival. The baby’s arrival will be extra exciting because Amadi and Shaun are waiting to find out the baby’s gender until the birth. We can’t wait to meet their little son or daughter. For their maternity session, we met Amadi and Shaun at Nifong Park, capturing photos in both the natural and man-made environment.

Columbia, MO, McBaine Bur Oak: Proposal – Daniel & Alicia

Columbia, MO, McBaine Bur Oak: Proposal – Daniel & Alicia

Daniel approached me (Andrew) while shooting pictures at The Crossing and asked if I’d be interested in capturing his proposal. “Sure!” I said with no idea it was happening in four days! Daniel and I scouted the location (McBaine Bur Oak), formulated a covert plan of action and it all came together. He picked up the ring an hour before he was to propose…talk about cutting it close!

In order to keep the proposal and photography a complete surprise, I dressed as a cyclist and acted as if I was repairing a flat on my bike. The MKT is nearby – a perfect cover. Shoshana parked across the road; her cover was that she just brought me a new inner tube. We must have blended in because Alicia did not notice or suspect a thing. Our cameras at the ready, we secretly snapped away as Daniel went down on one knee.

After capturing the special and private moment we grabbed some engagement photos. Daniel even brought some bubbly, and the evening was perfect.

Columbia, Missouri, Family Session: Calvin & CortneyJo

Columbia, Missouri, Family Session: Calvin & CortneyJo

We first met Calvin and CortneyJo a couple of years ago when their little guy, Calvin, Jr., was a tiny baby. They have definitely grown into a beautiful, loving little family! This session was a little bittersweet. They just left Columbia for a new job and we know there are many here who will miss them.

The Newcomer School on the Shelter Garden grounds was especially interesting for this session because Aimee’s mom attended a one-room schoolhouse in Kansas!
