Omaha, NE lifestyle photography by Janine Cooper

Janine has been photographing weddings and families in the Omaha area for 15 years! She is inspired by silly people, endearing mothers, and adorable grandpas. She is skilled in photographing people in their element and getting a good laugh out of just about anyone. You can often find Janine "swinging from the fences" to get her amazing shots...literally and figuratively. It's not uncommon for her to climb a tree or to the top of a car to where she needs to be. In Janine's "downtime" you can find her loving her husband and four kids, going on long runs, and laughing with her lady friends.

McKenzie Ring is a lifestyle photographer in Omaha, NE

I have been a family photographer and wedding photographer in the Omaha Metro area for 9 years! Preserving my own family's history is so precious to me that naturally, documenting them for other families is a genuine passion of mine. As a parent there is nothing more special than having images that remind you of your family as it is now...quirks, cries, laughs, and all. As a mom, seeing the photos of me and my son in our goofiest and quietest moments means everything, and I want you to have the same. They say you photograph what you love...I love life and my family...and I hope you can see that in my work. Learning to shoot with my heart and my gut...learning to see love in every form of a family is a specialty of mine. I'd love to document what your family's love looks like.

Cedar Rapids lifestyle photographer Kim Pagel, of Iowa

My photography style has been shaped by my own children and grandchildren. I wasn't content with occasional family shoots or snapshots. I wanted to capture each persons unique personality. Now as a grandfather, I want pictures that are honest, genuine, and authentic. I'm passionate about helping families find beauty in the ordinary moments of life! There's nothing more beautiful than the delight of child, an intimate moment between a dad and his son, or the tender expressions of love between a mom and her daughter. These everyday moments seem so ordinary, but when captured through pictures, become more treasured over time. Your family is beautiful and deserves to be photographed. I love capturing unscripted moments that are genuine and hones. No dress 'em up, size 'em up, line em up, and shoot em up. No wonder people don't care for family photo sessions! I believe that real is the new beautiful. All you need to do is relax and be yourself. Don't worry about having the right look or pose, or even what you should wear. I will spend time with you and your family capturing beautiful moments that you will treasure. I would be honored to photograph you and your family!

Mike Smith Lifestyle Photographer Kansas City, Missouri

Drink coffee, chase moments, tell stories. Repeat. We are a husband and wife team who are crazy about each other, best friends, passionate followers of Christ, lovers of all things coffee, history buffs, wannabe travelers – who got our first dose of the awesomeness that is photography back in 2007. We didn’t know this adventure was on the horizon, but when it hit, man… It hit us both pretty hard and we were HOOKED. Looking back, we could never have guessed where this journey would take us. The BEST part of this adventure is navigating it together, for sure. It may sound sappy, but we are best friends who spend every day together, and for us, it just works. Way back before photography, we had separate careers, separate schedules and it just wasn’t any fun. This is definitely better. We love to have fun. In fact, it’s going to be a requirement that you do, too. We think great things can be accomplished through good old-fashioned happiness. Moment driven photography is what we’re about. An authentic image, whether sweet or silly, happy or sad, is going to stir something in you every time you see it. And THAT is what we’re ultimately hoping for the opportunity to provide you. Real images, stirring images, beautiful images. Blessings, MIKE + JULIE
