Teach Me How to Dougie | Mexico & Ireland Style

Whenever Andrea and I travel we often find ourselves breaking into dance. Dance parties make a soul happy. And these past 2 years, the song “Teach Me How to Dougie” just wouldn’t get out of our heads and found it’s way into our mini dance parties. The music pulsed through our hands and feet and forced us to bust out some incredibly bad (me) dance moves in random places around Mexico , Ireland or even the Guinness Factory. Of course there was always some kind of liquid courage involved. But before you judge, first take a second and check out my sweet underwater Moonwalk!

Shoot Locations: Dublin, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Coco Bongo, Cenote Cristalino
We may not be the greatest at The Dougie but here is a little How To Dougie tutorial!

Kansas Family Portraits | Fall Shoot | Nicole + Alysa

Fall is a favorite season among adults but Halloween is one of the favorite holidays for kids. I can’t find a better way to remember this moment with the leave, the colors and this year’s Halloween costume, then having a fall photo shoot. We have shot photos of Alysa as she has grown up and she is growing up fast! She has always been such a trooper when it comes to our crazy ideas, she plays along so well. Enjoy watching Alysa play among the leaves in her devil outfit and eating candy apples. And Nicole, really, I don’t think you could be anymore photogenic!

School started back up for Andrea and it’s her last year! I’m ready for her to be done so I can have her all to myself. I kid. Maybe. With school starting she decided to take a last minute trip up to Kansas City to hang out with a friend, browse some local art museums, get new glasses and play dress up with the dog. It’s always sad when summer ends but at least September is full of events to attend and end it all on a good note.

(Photos from left to right) 1. Rico goes with me when I go location scouting. He has to be my model while I document a shot. He hates it  2. Andrea made a Mayan print and I want to steal it  3. Andrea’s friend Libby walking like an Egyptian  4. A night out on a patio with wine after a photo shoot. 5. Shadow art  6. Clean eating in a blender  7. Hairy beast on display  8. Hitting up the Kansas State Fair and watching the “Freak Show” behind the curtain. I think that will be the first and last time I see a man pound a nail up his nose  9. It’s always fun to put silly human things on your dog. Jaxx looks so smart.

Kansas Family Portraits | Minchin – Anderson Family

I always say, watch out when you live in a different country because you’ll probably meet someone and then marry them. I’ve seen it happen many times with friends, including myself. The story was no different for David when he was serving his term with the Peace Corps in Moldova. Can we say jealous! There was a few years there that I thought about joining the Peace Corps. But where is Moldova? It’s somewhere between Romania and Ukraine (yeah, I had to Google it myself).  Anyways, there he met Tania and it was love at first sight. Fast forward to about a year ago, and they were expecting a baby!

It’s a good thing David and Tania have a nice sister because Tania was gifted one of our PhotoBox Studios gift cards at her baby shower. What a great idea right?! So with an upcoming trip back home to show off the new baby to her family, Andrea and I had to the pleasure of coming over to meet baby Kelly. Kelly was a very happy baby. Not a single tear. David and Tania, it was a fun early morning at your house enjoying your daily routine with Kelly. It was our pleasure to equip you with some awesome tools to show off your new baby to your family in Moldova! Safe travels!
