Platte City Youth Volleyball – 9/21/20
This is the FIRST TIME that I can remember, in my last 30 years in youth sports, for Platte City having a youth volleyball team. So, This Is A Historical Moment! Thank you to Krista Kay, Parks and Recreation Specialist, for working with us in coordinating the picture day! Thank you to all the coaches, parents, and players!

Artistry In Motion Dance Company – 7/18-19/20
WOW! This was our First Volume Job in 3 Months since the Covid-19 hit! It was great to once again engage with kids, Stephanie and her staff, and of course our crew! I can’t thank Stephanie Redd enough for the opportunity to photograph her dance school!!! It was a little out of the ordinary of how we photograph dance schools. To adhere to social distancing, for the group photographs we did the green screen process, and then our graphic designer, Chris, takes the single green screen images and puts the groups together, as you can see. What a wonderful job he does (it’s a pretty involved process) but…like I Always Say – Half The Loaf Is Better Than None! Over all, Stephanie and her crew did an excellent job, considering we did both picture day and their recital in 2 days! Enjoy both the formal images, group images, and the slideshow! Thank you to all the students and parents! Have a wonderful summer!

Studio Crew – Covid-19 Staff Photo
Here we are in compliance with Covid-19 guidelines, wearing our masks!
Let me tell you, it’s a strange feeling to be wearing a mask and doing a photo shoot! Fortunately, our clients do not need to wear a mask! Ha!
Oh well, like I have always said, You Gotta Do What You Gotta Do!!
Thank You To All My Past Employees!
