My Senior | Carthage, Missouri

I’m not really sure where to start… This boy made me a momma 18 years ago!  It has beyond amazing to watch him grow, learn and become such an amazing young man.  Now it’s his turn to have me take HIS senior pictures! What a fun experience to cherish forever!

Little baby boy pictures | carthage, missouri

Nothing is sweeter than a precious baby! This newborn boy was in the studio when he was almost one month old for his newborn pictures! It is never too late for newborn pictures!

Mom wanted a natural color palette and something sweet and timeless. The wonderful thing about Celesta Champagne Photography is that everything is provided. Just tell Celesta your color and style and she will curate outfits, props to coordinate with the colors of your home.

Newborn baby boy pictures | Carthage, MO

Some may ask… is a one month old too old for newborn pictures? I say … never! This newborn boy was born before Christmas but came into the studio after Christmas for his newborn photographs. And oh my did we get the cute faces and cutest smiles! We may wrap up the baby more but babies love to be swaddled so he was just so happy. Plus, his family is just so gorgeous! The family pictures are to be cherished a loved forever!
