& This! This is why i love what I do!

about the artist

"God knew i needed you"

My name is Celesta and I am a newborn, child & family photographer.  Living in carthage, Missouri.  I am doing this life with my amazing husband and my 3 crazy but super cute kids.  
I ABSOLUTELY LOVE TO CREATE. I HAVE BEEN CREATING THINGS SINCE JUNIOR HIGH BUT WHEN MY OLDEST WAS BORN, I "RETIRED" FROM TEACHING TO STAY AT HOME WITH HIM. AFTER SOME "NOT SO GREAT" NEWBORN PICTUREs FROM A BIG BOX STORE, I STARTED MY ADVENTURE IN PHOTOGRAPHY. KNOWING THAT I COULD HAVE BETTER PICTURES OF HIM THAT I WOULD ACTUALLY WANT TO CHERISH.
But the love of newborn photography expanded with the birth of our precious little girl!  She surprised us and we now know that God has great plans for her and us!  God absolutely knew that I need her. 
I love photographing babies, children, seniors and families...I just love holding time in my hands and pinning down that one moment.  I love the unplanned shots of kids being kids, the senior fixing her hair, the little boy playing with sticks, baby giving mom a kiss and those precious little details of a newborn.  Time is just so short and memories fade but taking a picture makes them last forever!
