The Page Family {southwest Missouri Photographer}

Abbey is one of our 2010 Street Team members from Liberal High School. All of our senior clients get a free family session and the Page family took advantage of that deal a couple of weeks ago. They wanted an urban styled session, so we hit the streets, walked around, and got some awesome shots!

We have a new look!

We hired a graphic designer and she made us an awesome logo, blog header, letterhead, thank you cards, and business cards. She incorporated one of my favorite designs, the fleur-de-lis! I thought that with these new designs, it was time to give the blog a face lift. What do you guys think?

This is a work in progress. Some MAJOR blog changes are on the horizon! :D

Happy Birthday, Matt!

Today, Matt turns 26! This whole weekend, we've had the pleasure of celebrating his birthday. Saturday was our get together with his family. We all headed down to Joplin to eat at Buffalo Wild Wings. My chicken salad was awesome and everyone's wings look really yummy too! We played NTN trivia, which I loved doing when I was in college. During the middle of our dinner, they announced on the loud speaker that we were celebrating his birthday and he was rewarded with some vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup. I wanted to lie and say it was MY birthday too!

Sunday, we had a family dinner at his parents' house so his daughter, Hayley could join us. Kathy made a fabulous dinner of lemon pepper chicken, mac and cheese, and fried squash. We brought over some McAlister's Tea a DQ ice cream cake which was just as good as I remember as a kid!


I took this video just as Matt had gotten a drop of hot wax on his finger and screamed like a girl! haha

I hope you've had a good birthday weekend, Matt! :)

You guys can wish him a happy birthday on Twitter @nfldraftscout and @mpix.

Candids from Matt's Senior Session {southwest Missouri Photographer}

Matt G's (Fort Scott High) senior session went so well, I thought I'd post some more!

My boyfriend/office manager/assistant/second shooter, Matt M. took some candids of me shooting and also some of Matt G. from a different angle.

For not being a photographer, I think he did pretty well! What do you guys think?


By the way, Matt M's birthday is tomorrow...the big 2-6! For those who know him, make sure to wish him a happy 26th! :D

Matt, Fort Scott High Senior Portraits {Senior Photographer}

Matt is our first 2010 non-Street Team member. I love it when seniors are on the ball and don't procrastinate having their portraits taken! :D

Matt and his mom, Mary, came to us from Fort Scott. He is a referral from our Street Team member, Angel (thanks'll be getting something in the mail soon!).

When discussing where the outdoor part of his session will take place, his mom mentioned the Lamar City Park. She continued to tell me that she used to have family reunions there as a child and has a lot of fond memories of the park.

After shooting a few studio portraits...


...we headed over to the park!

Next to the park, the was a fantastic old abandoned building. It wouldn't be a Jessica Edwards Photography session without some images with killer texture and an urban feel.

He was such a trooper by climbing up this wall to pose in this awesome doorway!

Thanks Matt & Mary for a fantastic session! I can't wait until you see the final prints! Oh, and I'm really excited about designing some graduation invitations for you guys. :D
