Josh Solar Photo is No More...

Don't worry, we aren't going anywhere, it's still Jenny and me, but we are now Solar Photographers!!!!!!!

We've been working on this for quite some time now, and felt that the Josh part made it like it was MY business. It's always been OUR business, so, now we have a super duper, fun, exciting, colorful new website, blog, and brand that reflects US. Thanks for following us on this great and wonderful adventure. We hope you'll continue with us onto this next step!

These 4 sentences are nowhere near enough to thank Michelle, from A Girl Named Fred, who worked super hard on the design of our new brand. She was with us from the beginning of the process and probably as I type this still working hard on finishing all our other projects. She never complained when I messed up the stuff she had put so much time in, she just fixed it :) So, if you need some design work done, you will not, I repeat, WILL NOT, find a more wonderful person to work with than Michelle.

So, head on over to the BRAND SPANKIN' new look at Solar Photographers (and let us know what you think)!!!!

Engaged: Alyssa & Doug

I don't even know where to begin with these two. It was just a perfect session all around.

1. 2 people in love
2. a campfire
3. a cute doggie
4. lots of snuggling
5. some guitar playing
6. the woods. we saw a HUGE snake (actually, it was tiny, but every snake is HUGE to me)
7. matching tattoos
8. have I mentioned LOVE yet?

Hair/Makeup: Katie from Mink Artistry (she always does such a beautiful job)

Macy really didn't like my camera very much...but I think she's adorable :)

Love this one!

The only thing better than great light? 2 beautiful people in great light.

Loved the tattoos they got together.

Then it was campfire time.
and it kept getting darker and darker...

and more awesomer and awesomer (I don't care if that's a word or not, I like it)

My favorite.

Dancing by the fire is a great way to end any session.

Robert Randolph & the Family Band

I love to shoot concerts for fun. On Saturday I had the opportunity to shoot one of my favorite guitarists, Robert Randolph & the Family Band, at Crossroads behind Grinders. These dudes can flat out PLAY!!!! They put on an amazing show & their music is so positive and uplifting that you leave feeling absolutely wonderful.

I also met a couple of rad photographers who were shooting as well:
James Allison
Chuck France

He just plays with so much PASSION & ENERGY!

Here's a video you all should check out if you don't know who Robert Randolph is...and, if you do, watch it anyway. It's a great pick me up!

Return of the Dinos!

I ran into some dinosaurs sometime ago. I was scared!

Luckily, they left me alone and started terrorizing others...

Have a wonderful Monday!!!!!

Taylor & Mallory

This is our third annual shoot with Taylor and Mallory. I know I say it alot, but I can't believe how fast these little girls are growing up! It's fun to go back and see how much they've changed. Here's the blog post from last year, and the one from two years ago is here.

For this session, we met in Lawrence on the Kansas campus. It holds a lot of memories for mom & dad. They both went to school there, it's where dad proposed to mom, plus it's a fun place to shoot. And, when we heard they had KU cheerleading outfits for the girls...let's just say, we smiled :)

Jenny's favorite.

My favorite.

Another favorite. Can you tell we've been enjoying the grass shots lately?

working on her modeling portfolio :)

here's where the proposal happened :)

KU cheerleading outfits + mommy & daddy's textbooks = MAJOR CUTENESS

We will tramp, tramp, tramp around the columns
With a cheer for old Mizzou!

oh, wait, wrong cheer :)

Rock, Chalk Jayhawk!

Happy kiddos make me smile!

I just love these last 4 shots. They are so cute in their little cheer unis!
