Sister Has Baby On Board ~ Kansas City Beautiful

 

 

Baby Baby Baby!  Oh Baby!

 

 

Growing up it wasn’t something we ever talked about.  I never even thought about getting married.  However my sisters seemed to grasp the idea of family a little sooner than me.  We welcomed Mike to our family he was the second guy to marry in to our insanity.  It was a few years later we welcomed another bundle of joy, Reid arrived tossing this adventurous couple into a life with a little one.

We couldn’t have been happier!  We sure have had fun watching him grow and develop interests and take after both his dad and his mom!

 

It is nearly 10 years later and we are so excited to soon welcome another beautiful life into our family.  It won’t be long.

On our journey to St. Louis we had the pleasure to stop in Kansas City to photograph Kyla!   She is due now nearly anytime and we can’t wait to welcome a little girl into our family.

I know we are all jealous of how gorgeous Kyla is everyday, and pregnant is no exception.

Her smile and grace extend throughout her busy household.  Dad is nearly a professional bicycle racer along with advancing in a career that keeps thriving.  Reid is athletic like dad and is busy exploring sports and building projects.   This little bundle of joy will keep this Kansas City family all on their toes!

We’ve already begun to spoil her rotten with pink bows and dresses!  She is going to be welcomed into a home where Thomas the Train was king once upon a time.

Big brother is getting used to the idea, and will soon be drawing up the bridge over the moat, so his kingdom isn’t invaded by curious posh princess.

We are getting ahead of ourselves.  She has yet to arrive.

Here is my Kansas City Sister, with little Princess getting ready to stake her claim.

Baby on Board

Blessings, Tonja

Congrats! SHes a very beautiful baby!

Beautiful Education.

 

 

 

Life isn’t always predictable.  That is what makes it so interesting.  From Nebraska to Missouri.

 

 

My path to a life as a photographer hasn’t been a straight line.  I could be called a late bloomer or a person who takes advantage of unexpected opportunities.

I’ll be sharing bits and pieces of this journey over the next few blog posts.  While I share some images that I have recently created.

 

 

About three years or so ago, maybe four I was undergoing some more changes in my life.  Doors were closed and I was in search of an open door.   The more I found with no opportunity, the more determined I became to find a door that opened.  My world had changed many years before this and the time had come for me to push again for another change.  One of my choosing this time.

I had discovered blogging during this process, not only did I write a blog but I also read many of them.  It was one of those bloggers that lead me to an open door.  Only I didn’t see the opening at first.  Life is funny to be sure.

My amazing husband as you may be well aware of by now had gotten a camera as a gift and in the process of trying to help him learn how to use it better, I also learned how to use it better myself.  Even though at the time I was only able to hold it for a couple minutes at a time.  While reading a cyber friend’s blog, she talked about this new form of education called CreativeLIVE.  Of course I had to check it out.

CreativeLIVE soon became my sanctuary.  I was obsessed.  I tend to fully immerse myself in things which can be bad or it can be good.  At any rate, it gave me something else to focus on outside of myself.  Jason of course gathered all of the technical information that instructor John Greengo shares about what all of the buttons and dials do on our camera.  Then Zack ARIAS rocked my world with a light!   Yeah, I was hooked.

I’d been starving for information that gave me a road map to turn myself into a person who had a new way to connect with people.  Another way to help them feel amazing special and more beautiful.

This is what I’d been missing.

Life seems to be so much more empty without a passion for serving others and having a way to do this.

One amazing person that I’ve met on my latest journey.  This truly was a journey for me.  While education at CreativeLIVE is fantastic, I had never until this time taken an in person photography class since I was about 13 years old.  (Which is an entirely different story all together.)  This journey was to St. Louis, MO.

Jason and I were blessed to attend After Dark a perfect place for me to meet up with other photographer friends I have made online from all over the country.  Top instructors gathered, models, entertainers, and athletes descended upon Union Station in down town St. Louis for an amazing week of learning!

One of the beautiful people I met at this venue and had the opportunity to spend private studio time with Julie.  She is a woman with curves and a sultry voice that can belt out the tunes and cast a spell over her audience.

She is a performer of burlesque, as well as jazz and other genera of music as well.  Her talent pours and her voice just finds the sweet spot in your soul and makes it’s self at home with you.  Her curvy figure adds to the whole experience, she shifts back and forth feeling the music as she allows it to fill the room.  You can’t help but find her captivating.

 

A woman full of surprises you can tell right from the start, you are never sure what is coming next but you know you’ll be there to find out.

 

Meet Julie.

Or on Facebook as Julie Jewels Jubilee to stay in touch with her performance schedule!

Beautiful In All The Right Ways! F-Cancer! Jill In Paris by Sue Bryce and Hailey Bartholomew and Nebraska Beauty Images by Jason and Tonja Photography

 

This is a story about love!

 

How do you feel about yourself?  I mean really feel about yourself?  Do you know that you are amazing and special?  I remember times I’d see my mom, and I don’t think she felt this way.  I know she had moments of this, as the mother of three girls, she put us first, but at a point we started working with her to get her “beauty” back.  She was glamorous as a single gal, fashionable as a married woman, and when she became a mom, as I started to tug on her jewelry that part of her seemed to slip away.

I wish I’d had the skills to photograph her like I can do these days with women.  She so deserved a portrait or a little book showing off her outer beauty, so when she would look at it and not feel that great about herself that day for whatever reason, she’d still be able to transfer those feelings to her new day.

I wanted to share this beautiful story about a woman named Jill.  Please take the time to read and watch.  It may just change your life.  Know you are beautiful!

Blessings, Tonja

 

 

My mother had great beauty, on the inside and the out.  I think she really felt her beauty this day!

 

A gorgeously beautiful, on the inside and out,  lady named Jill.

She was photographed by my friend/mentor Sue.

This is the story, I hope you take the time to flip through the online magazine, and I hope you take the time to watch the beautiful video made by Hailey about this whole experience.  Jill’s story is still being written, but her message is what I hope to pass along to you today!

 

 

This beautiful magazine was created by Portrait Photographer Sue Bryce

 

http://issuu.com/suebryce/docs/the-light-that-shines

 

It is a beautiful message.  A life saving message.  Life is nice.  Even the bad parts allow you to fight for the good parts.  This video is profoundly created by Hailey Bartholomew.

 

 

 

 

Find more out about gorgeous Jill here.

 

The message that I’d like to leave you with is that you are beautiful!  Don’t wait to live your life.  Don’t wait to be afraid of what everyone else would think if you became who you’ve always wanted to be.

I think in each of us we hold back.  If you knew you weren’t going to have the choice any longer.  How would you wished you’d have lived?

Also do your breast exams.  Eat healthy, Exercise, and LIVE!

My mom got to spend more time with us because she did.    Don’t wait to be who God meant for you to be.  You are beautiful!

 

We are blessed,

Jason and Tonja
