Msgt. Patty Rodriguez - Missouri Air National Guard - 4/7/19

  • Published May 28th, 2019 by rudys

When Patty called me to invite me to her retirement ceremony this coming August in Jefferson City, Mo., I was honored.  Patty is retiring with 25 years of service in the Missouri Air National Guard!  It’s hard to believe that it’s been 25 years ago that Patty came into the Air Guard.  I was her supervisor in the photo unit and now here’s she’s retiring!  We made arrangements to do a uniform portrait of Patty for her retirement and here you see the results.  Patty, you have done well for yourself and your country!  It’s an honor to do your military portrait!

We have had the pleasure and opportunity of photographing Tiffany’s family for several years!  Here we not only photographed the whole family, but we also did some photographs of their grand baby, Kenzingten, for her 1 Year Old Birthday Celebration!  Also, they have a new grand baby on the way, as you can see by the photograph of everyone with the t-shirts celebrating!  It’s always a lot of FUN photographing this family!  We always do the breakdowns of the generations, sisters, grandma and grandpa, etc.  Thank you again for the opportunity to capture and stop time for your family!

I have known Connor since he was a young lad and here he is a senior in high school!  WOW!  Not to sound old, but I had the opportunity of photographing Connor’s mom, Stephanie, for her high school senior photos for the class of 1993!!  Wow, again!  Connor is on the Platte County R-3 High School Swimming Team and has been for all 4 years of high school.  We went on location to the Y Swimming Pool in Platte City to capture some of Connor’s photographs, as you can see here.  Then we came back to the studio to finish up.  Connor is looking to go into the military and serve our country.  Connor, we wish you the best with your future goals!  Thank you to you and your mom for the opportunity of having done your senior photographs!

I would like to thank Jazlyn’s mom, ZoAnn, and Jazlyn for the opportunity to photograph her senior portraits!  Jazlyn is no stranger to our studio as we have photographed her through all four years of high school with the Dazzlers as well as with Artisty In Motion Dance Company, as well as other activities since she was a young girl.  Check out the image with all her dance outfits from since she was 4 years old.  What a story that image tells.  All the hard work, etc., that she’s put into her dancing!!  WOW!!  Jazlyn, it’s always a pleasure having you in front of my camera!  Again, thank you and your mom!!  We wish you the best with your college years and future goals!

Corbin is a theatre man.  He's in Theatre/Drama in high school.  He does it all from stage design, lighting, and acting.  Well, judge for yourself, the images speak for themselves!  I told him he looks like a young Christopher Reeve (early Superman actor who did the Superman movies).  He was lots of fun to work with!  Corbin, we wish you the best with your acting career!

Madison Foreman - Home School Senior - 3/15/19

  • Published May 16th, 2019 by rudys

The Foremans are no strangers to our studio.  They are long time Elite Clients!  We have been photographing both their family portraits and graduating seniors for several years!

 

Madison (she likes to be called Madi) is the last of the three girls to graduate!  Madi has been very active in Girl Scouts since she was 4 years old, as you can see by one of the images with all her accomplishments.  She’s also been very involved in Martial Arts!  She’s also a writer (check out her typewriter - yes she uses it to type her writing!)  She’s close to having a book published and also loves to read.  Madi, it was a pleasure doing your senior photographs!  Also, thank you to Mom and Dad for once again putting their confidence and trust in us to photograph their last child!
