Julia's exhibit "Summer Fun" will be up at Cafe Trio through October 15. Just as the title suggests, the show is full of fun summer inspired images that include photographs from the beach and the Missouri State Fair. Cafe Trio is located just off the plaza on Main Street.

I've started a new photo project: "Faces on Film."
I came up with the concept because I love portraits of all kinds of people.
I'll be traveling to different locations in and around town. I will set up my white backdrop and take a portrait of anyone who wants to stop and stand in front of it. The pictures will be taken with my Hasselblad. I'll shoot with film and i'll process and print the portraits like I always do.
It's that time of year again-- the time that sons and daughters of all ages start thinking "What in the world am I going to get my mom this year for Mother's Day!?" Since we are constantly in search of the perfect gift, the one that will crown us "Adored Child of the Year", the present that receives the coveted tears of joy reaction, why not bring your mom in to the studio for a special photo shoot? Just her and her precious children.
I started having a special Mother's Day Shoot a few years ago and I have to say that it is most definitely one of my favorites! I am all about the "Generational Portraits." The older I get, the more important family pictures become to me. The snapshots are great, but it's the timeless black-and-white pictures I want to frame and spread all over my house.
Most weekends when we ask our boys what they want to do they say, "go to the tracks!"
Like many little boys, our son Jed has had a fascination with trains since he first started collecting "Thomas the Train" cars. He quickly became an addict when the Toys-R-Us near Bannister Mall went out of business and they were selling everything Thomas for 70% off. My husband Tom was also addicted--he bought everything there was to buy. I will say, it did make potty training easy. On a good day, Jed was getting as many as three trains.
I am asked all the time, "Do you do senior portaits?" My answer is always, of course I do! My thought is, if you can take a great picture of a one year old, you can take great portriats of just about anybody!
