When she was eight years old, Nichole Conard’s grandparents gave her the gift of a camera. Since that day, she’s seen the world through the eye of her camera lens. She worked for other photography companies, earning promotions and publication, before she finally realized her dream of opening her own studio, RedRock Photography. When the business grew too big for Nichole to handle alone, she turned to her sister-in-law, Jennifer Baldwin. A passionate shutterbug and photojournalist, Jennifer joined the company as a co-owner and photographer. Today, Nichole focuses on the studio's Wichita branch while Jennifer maintains the Emporia branch.
Today, the sisters-in-law are busy shooting all types of portraits. Nichole has amassed more than 20 years of professional portrait experience, and Jennifer’s been shooting professionally for six years, allowing them to draw from a wealth of experience as they capture family photos, maternity shots, and one-person portraits, as well as their specialty: children’s photography. Sessions at their studio are private and unrushed, and outdoor shoots capture images in a single natural background. During Cruise sessions, the photographer and subject travel around, stopping to take photographs with unique locations, striking landscapes, or curiously grinning cats.
Brooks Institute of Photography attendee Kevin Keith, alongside of his wife Ashley, has chalked up more than seven years of wedding and lifestyle photography experience. With subjects dressed their best in wedding frocks and dapper tuxedos, the husband-and-wife team captures every moment of the momentous occasion, from their first glances at each other before the ceremony to the tail of the limousine as it drives away from the reception.
Candid moments like these are the signature of Kevin Ashley Photography, where Kevin and Ashley work together on wedding and engagement photo shoots, along with portraits and lifestyle photography. In addition to directing poses and snapping photos, Kevin and his wife have been imparting their wisdom to aspiring photographers for more than five years by sharing tips and techniques during private lessons and group photography workshops. And for those who prefer to take photographic matters into their own hands, Kevin Ashley Photography also rents out a LIGHTBOX photo booth for events and parties.
A beaming, tutu-clad youngster poses by a large number 2, commemorating her new age. A couple, nearly newlywed, strolls through a sepia-tinged park holding hands. A brindled puppy with floppy ears capers across a red wooden wagon. These are just a few of the shots that the photographers at Worth A 1000 Words Studio have captured during their tenure at the memory emporium. Both in-studio and on-location shoots cover the gamut of photogenic opportunities, from senior portraits to weddings to adorable pictures of babies disguised as bunnies or even smaller babies.
My 3 Sons Photography specializes in unique portraits of babies, children, families and high school seniors. There is nothing I love more than capturing that moment in time. Let me capture that moment for you and you that gift you will always look back on. A chance to "remember when."
When 2-year-old Ellie shyly set foot in Emmalee Schaumburg's studio, the photographer doubted she'd get a single shot. Rather than throw in the towel, she let Ellie wander the studio and slowly grow more comfortable with this new woman and her strange camera. By the end of the session, Emmalee had earned Ellie's trust, and wound up capturing striking images of the adorable youngster. That patience and flexibility is always on display at Schaumburg Photography, where Emmalee specializes in images of newborns as well as families, children, high-school seniors, and weddings. She roams throughout Lawrence snapping shots at local parks and homes, or she’ll pose subjects amid the vintage bicycles, suitcases, and other props at her studio. Once her shoots wrap, Emmalee preserves clients' pictures with products such as DVD slideshows, holiday ornaments, and photo charms that add a personal touch to necklaces, bracelets, and ankle monitors.
