Calling all KIDS!

It’s a recipe contest!

The Junior League of Springfield, in partnership with St. John’s Children’s Hospital and 93.9 ABE-FM, encourage all local kids to get healthy and get cooking!

The Junior League of Springfield is creating a cookbook for kids. But they need some help! Who could better decide what delicious dishes should be included in a cookbook for kids than kids themselves?

JLS is currently accepting recipe submissions from children ages 8 to 12. They want kids to experiment in the kitchen, and let them know how other children can re-create their yummiest of dishes! (Parents can help out of course, though the goal is for all recipes to be for kids, by kids).

The best way to find more information is to visit the JLS Web site, at You’ll find a recipe form that you can print out, fill in and then send in. Please contact Brandy Moore at or by calling 787-7802 with any questions.

All recipes must be submitted by May 31 so JLS (with children’s help, of course!) can begin testing them. The kids whose winning entries are delicious and healthy enough to make the cookbook, will be notified by July 31, 2008.

Sneak Peek!

Then and NOW

Ok, so I don't have the "then" to show you, but I can show you the NOW. This brother and sister combo was photographed a LONG time ago by a cool photographer that moved out of town. Fast forward to 2008. I photographed them this past weekend. Kind of a "Then and NOW" thing, even if only in my mind. Sharing ONE.


Sneak Peek!

New KID on the Block!

Welcome to the world! Welcome to the neighborhood! Just hours after being born this little guy was "posing" for his first professional photo session. (That's what happens when you live across the street from a photographer.)

One last image...for now. Check back!

Lady in RED, lol.

OMG, if I call this image Lady in RED will you lol cuz that is so not a cool name? Oh well! Love, love this one!

"Work it GIRL!"

I think that's the comment that made us all laugh. People walking by thought we were doing a photo session for a magazine. We just might be! In any case, "Work it GIRL!"

Have a seat.

What are the chances that we would be walking down this path and find this unbelievable chair? Most likely, slim to NONE! Good thing I thought to bring it with me.

They all look so good and dress great! They listen to what I have to say and they want to do their best. I could photograph seniors all day! Seems like that is what I have been doing lately. Love it!
