SNAP Photography blog » Kansas City Wedding and Portrait Photography

We are all thankful for good friends. These friends are special and this blog post is a long time coming. My kids line up with the Lyons kids and have experienced a lot of Kansas City with this family. I’ve gotten to see more of the world with this family. They leave us with many memories. In August they moved to Ohio. I wanted to give them some memories of their little Brookside home here. We miss them all the time…
                                                                                                               Now dab. This is a theme, that will be continued.

And not to be forgotten, when their family came in this summer via London and Malaysia….Family memories as well. Thanks for all the good times Lyons-Josephs.

I had a whole hand written blog in a notebook about the act of decisions and how I hate and love all the decisions our charmed life has given us. It was pertaining to this particular senior and how it will be really hard to figure out what she was going to print out and send to the relatives so on and so forth. But I lost the notebook-ha!!! Such is life, but that leads me in another direction. Thankfulness, I hope to blog something I’m thankful for every day in relation to my shoots. I will start today with Sydney. She is one of those girls that dances like no one is watching. She is who she is and that beauty radiates out of her. It’s no wonder, knowing her mother and sister.  Her mother is my tax-preparer, accountant and all around general therapist (previous blog) when it comes to this SNAP train ride. She is fabulous. Mel I’m so thankful we found you all those years ago. Thank you both for hanging in there through the lime’s disease and general bug fest we endured.  Your daughters are going to be amazing women I can just tell. Sydney is going to be the best Marine Biologist to come out the middle of the prairie that exists. GOOD LUCK DECIDING.

                                                                                                                       It is so fun to do a dancer’s photos. Just had to throw a water texture in there as this girl loves the water.

What do you get when you put a precocious three year old on his birthday, one of the best soccer coaches in the city, two cat-loving, active girls and a mom that has is constantly running after all of them down in the West Bottoms? Gold, I tell ya. I’ve gotten to know this family through my kids and they couldn’t be more fun. Kevin is my daughter’s EXCELLENT soccer coach—not only are they learning how to work their feet, they are learning team skills and listening and chemistry. It is really impressive. The West Bottoms was the perfect venue on a fall evening, as these active kids could run through the dust that left gold sunlight in their wake (and a bunch of feral cats that the girls wanted to take home with them).                                                                                                                          Happy Birthday G! This picture suits you.                                                                                                                           I kinda love the sun on these girls.                                                                                                                                               Oh come.on.                                                                    As Stella would say, thanks Coach, you and your family are awsome. (spelled like that)

I’m excited to announce the newest member of the family my nephew Noah. Many of you know my sister Anna (younger- slightly less pretty-just kidding) as she has helped me through the years and is a social media maven as well as her husband Erik who can work a wedding film…..Noah joined us a little early and the road started a little rocky but he is a champ and the Baska camp could not be more excited. It is so fun to have a baby in the family that doesn’t sleep over-ha!  As you can see he is so cute and he only gets cuter by the day. He smiled at me this morning because he knows where it’s at. I also painted my dining room a very bright sort of Miami Vice blue (going for more subtle but you know how that goes) and it may have just woke him up. Can’t wait for the years of memories to come little one, starting here with some newborn photos. We all love you.                                                                                                      Anna looks too damn good.
                                  Said it before- the simple newborn shoots are so sweet and classic like bread and butter……simple.
this one cracks me up, forget Noah, that’s Moses there.
