Eyelashes for Miles

Mr. J just gets cuter with age. HERE he is as a fresh little newborn and at the ripe age of one. Now he is the big THREE and I could just eat. him. up. The girls are going to swoon after his eyelashes and golden curls.  This is round one of his session. Round two gets even better.

The Roost

I wanted to give a shout out to The Roost, a spirit store in the Pleasant Hill High School selling anything and everything purple and gold. The store is run by PHHS students and overseen by COE teacher, Mrs. Franklin. I believe it is open each day after school. (You might want to call the school to verify this. Don’t take my word for it.) If you are looking for purple and gold attire for homecoming or for Christy B’s PH Pride mini sessions, be sure to stop by early before they run out. You’ll get some nice PH attire and support the school at the same time.

I stopped by the store yesterday to pick me up a new PH t-shirt. I mean REALLY! How many people can say they own a shirt with a gold glittery rooster on the front?

On a side note, I will be on the sidelines again tonight photographing the Rooster football players in action.  Be sure to check the blog on Monday for a few sneak peeks of the action and maybe even a little something extra.  Then visit Christy B Photography on Facebook to view all of the images from the evening.   Good luck tonight, Roosters!

2010 Haunted Hayride ~ Benefit for United Way

In these hard times there are more people than ever in our area in need of assistance.  Again this year Alpha Zeta Omicron will host the 12th annual haunted hayride which will be held at the Pleasant Hill City Lake on October 23rd from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. Proceeds earned from the hayride will be donated to the Pleasant Hill United Way to be used to help those in need. 

This is your chance to help donate to the cause and enjoy a frightfully fun evening.  Tickets for the hayride are just $5 each.  A hot dog, cookie and drink is included with each admission.  Please mark your calendars and plan to attend and at the same time help out those in need here in Pleasant Hill. 

Putting on the hayride is not an easy task.  It takes months and months of planning, building and many volunteers that donate their time and money to help make the hayride a success each year.  During these rough economic times businesses are just not able to donate as they did in the past which will make pulling the event off this year just a little bit more difficult.  If you are able to help either monetarily or physically at the hayride, please contact Amy Nelson, event coordinator, at 816.540.3255 as soon as possible.  The more help they have in advance, the more scary the hayride experience will be and the more money we can donate to the Pleasant Hill United Way.

“H” Family

Last weekend I was able to spend part of the evening with the “H” family. Back in the day, I went to school with the kids and Mr. H was the superintendent of the schools. Fast forward a few years and I’m able to meet up with them again for some family photos. What a great job I have! In addition to these traditional photos, they also had special pictures taken specifically for their Christmas cards. I have to keep them under wraps for now, but I’m going to beg them to allow me to share after Christmas. The theme is just too fun! Their cards are sure to bring a smile to all those lucky enough to receive them.

A, I hope we got done quick enough for you and the process wasn’t too painful. 
C, hope you’re feeling better!
Mr. and Mrs. H, hope you like the images.  You and your family were so fun to work with!
C, thank you for contacting me for your family photos.  It was so great seeing everyone again.

“K” Family Maternity

Through divine intervention the “K” family was brought to Christy B Photography for their maternity portraits. How lucky am I? Beautiful family. Glowing mom. Handsome dad. Adorable big sister. Lucky baby! I am thrilled to share a few of their maternity images with you.

Oh. My Gosh.  How perfect are they?!?

Little Miss L was just the most precious thing and a dream to work with.  Look at that smile and those sparling eyes.  It doesn’t get much cuter than that. 

Simply stunning.  You look absolutely beautiful, Jennifer!

I love this image and how you can feel their love for one another just by looking at it.  Dad’s tattoo is just begging for a newborn portrait with baby in his arms. 

Thank you, thank you, thank you “K” family for allowing me to photograph your beautiful growing family.  I hope you like your maternity images.

“A” ~ Not the Usual School Portraits

Here is another round of NTUSP for you. “A” was a natural. We zipped through a few images, looked at them and had the HARDEST time narrowing them down because she was beautiful in ALL of them. She chose our Beachy set – one of my personal faves.
