Today we have a much anticipated photoshoot to reveal: Christine’s family photos!
It’s Tatiana here, ready to show off this wonderful family! I figured I would give Christine a breather for a day and type up some bloggy goodness for you all. 😉
This blue building in downtown Eureka (above) was just screaming for photos. As soon as Christine saw it, she climbed into the alley and made her family follow.
When we first set out to do this shoot, it was the beginning of August — and 99% of us were elated about it!
Christine picked out the cutest outfits for the whole fam (seriously, I need an adult version of Lily’s dress), and we had a plan to conquer all plans.
The outfits were here, the photographer was in town, the location picked out, and then — Luna looked into the stars and just knew it wasn’t the right time!
Instead of making us adults look silly in not realizing this, she simply refused to wear her dress. And this was an outright, screaming and ripping it off kind of refulas.
She was just waiting until the stars had aligned, apparently.
Look at that. The face of wisdom and innocence right there. Turns out, she had the right idea because the original location closes at a crazy early time!
Good lookin’ out, Luna!
So, we rescheduled which actually turned out better because we ended up changing the location to downtown Eureka, Missouri.
Luna was thrilled to get all dressed up with her big sister — this time!
OK, in theme with my other blogs — it’s time for the sap.
Christine is seriously one of the most phenomenal humans I have met. She dedicates her life and love to her family, as well as managing a business through Kansas City Photography to share her light with others.
I always joke around that she is like “a puppy bathed in sunshine and rainbows,” but that is honestly the best way I think anyone can describe her optimism.
Christine would probably prefer to be called “a kitten” instead of a “puppy” because of her affinity for cats, but I’m a dog person, so …
She picked the perfect career as a photographer because she effortlessly makes everyone around her smile!
And let’s not forget Bryan. He’s pretty amazing too. I’ll let Christine say a few words about him:
“Bryan is a gem. He puts up with my crazy, crazy schedule with stride. He’s an amazing father, husband, and partner in crime.
To put this in perspective, let’s just go with a typical day in Christine’s brain:
‘Hey, Bryan! I know it’s Thursday, and this only gives us a 1-day notice, but do you feel like driving down to Arkansas this weekend to surprise my best friend for her birthday?’
That actually happened. And yes, we did go. And yes, she was surprised [Hi, Jenn!].”

“He’s that rock that reminds me to bring water to photoshoots, charge my camera batteries, and actually get to bed at a decent hour.
That’s real love. And I’m so, so blessed.”
And I feel blessed to know such a wonderful family!
After the shoot, the girls were rewarded with cupcakes for their modeling efforts at Sarah’s On Central.
Luna was very pleased! She always has to have the cupcake with “the pink icing,” and then … only eats the icing! It’s ok. More cake for mom!
