Leilani & Shane

I’ve known Leilani for years, ever since I started going to “My office”, aka Joplin Ave Coffee Co. Lani was one of the original barista crew there and served me I’m sure hundreds of cups of coffee over time.  Anyone that’s been around her knows she’s one of the very sweetest. So I was delighted when I met Shane and his genuine heart was also so immediately apparent, because Leilani deserves nothing less.

And a good thing, because if he’d been some creeper, he’s too big for me or anyone else to have told to get lost. Keep using those biceps for good, Shane.

And congrats, you two. 🙂

Makenzie & Nate wedding

Mackenzie & Nate are lovely people with a fuller reception that I’ve seen in some time. When this many people show up to your wedding and reception (record observed number of simultaneous “cupid shuffle” dancers for me), you’ve gotta be good people. Or famous. I don’t think they’re famous. So that seems to answer what kind of people they are… 😉

Enjoy perusing this set from the day!

Derek & Lauren: 6/22/18

Derek & Lauren hired me because I capture personalities and humor. They told me they laughed for an hour while going through my wedding portfolio… and while that might not always be a compliment for a photographer, it sure was in this case. I knew it meant they were perusing all the goofy, ridiculous moments I’ve gotten and realizing I’d get their sense of humor down in images just the same.

It was hot, yes, but a wonderful day- it’s rare you see the full cast and crew of the big day so relaxed, so sweet, so very dancy.

I loved this day and hope you do too!

Katie & Caleb

Meet Katie & Caleb. I do few weddings these days, and I’m so very glad that these two were one of the sweet couples I got to capture a day for.

Surrounded by so many friends, the Boydstons are obviously very loved, and for good reason. Hope you enjoy walking through the day via a slice of time here and there…

-Mark

the final photobooth:: preview

Our final ‘third thursday’ photobooth of the season, here in downtown Joplin MO, was a grand success.

The october photobooth is always my favorite, because the theme is simply ‘costumes’ and I LOVE seeing what folks come up with. This month’s attendeeds certainly didn’t disappoint… our costume contest from this month has some serious contenders, with references from ‘Monsters Inc’, ‘Walking Dead’, ‘Dr Who’, ‘Lord of the Rings’, Will Ferrell-era SNL, and the list goes on.

Special thanks to my awesome regulars for making this so fun, and for following me all over downtown for the last 4 years as I’ve moved from spot to spot. Thanks to the new folks who dared to try something new and donned a silly costume for a picture.

And, thanks SO much to Spiva Center for the Arts for hosting us this year. We’ve really enjoyed being in Spiva in 2014 and I think we may have found a more permanent photobooth home there. If you’re an attender, don’t let the end of ‘third thursday’ stop you from visiting spiva regularly. there’s always awesome work up there…. right now, for instance, all 330+ Norman Rockwell ‘saturday evening post’ covers, as well as some pieces by one of MY personal favorite photographers, Julie Blackmon. And tonight is another long awaited collaboration between Spiva & 9art, in which we give folks the chance to create their OWN Rockwell covers.

Here’s a few of our favorites from third thursday, while you’re waiting on the whole batch to be ready on facebook….

Back to school:: MINI SESSIONS!

august mini ses. flyer

 

Hey all! This post is just going to be a quick one, and is specifically for all you JoMo parents. If you live in Joplin and want some quick-but-awesome shots of your little ones in their back-to-school duds, we will be doing mini sessions this August 15th & 16th. $30 for the first child, $10 to add on additional kiddos.

If you want more info, click through to our facebook ‘event’… specifics are there, and you can click ‘attending’ and either e-mail (markn@9artphoto.com) or FB msg us to reserve your 15 minute slot.

We hope this to be a great alternative to stuffy school pictures, as well as a nice affordable option for folks who aren’t quite ready for a full-out family session just yet.

Here’s a few samples from mini sessions I’ve done in the past… day 1 at the park, day 2 at the studio, which is how I plan to run things this year too.

third thursday photobooth: ‘fairy tale’ theme (june 2014)

joplin mo third thursday photobooth- 9art photography's fairy tale themed photo booth event_0006
As most of you know, Joplin MO hosts a sweet event every month known as ‘third thursday’, during which folks come out to eat some delicious downtown food, view local art, and participate in 9art’s themed photobooth.

This is the 2nd month Michelle & I have set things up in the upstairs at Spiva Center for the Arts, and we continue to be honored and delighted that they’ve allowed us to partner with them.

I’m also super excited about the pictures from this month. When I said we were doing a ‘fairy tale’ theme, I had princess dresses and a Disney sort of look in mind… but the theme is always at the mercy (or benefit) of the props we come up with.

I’m EXTREMELY fortunate to be friends with folks who don’t think dress up should only be taken seriously when you’re a kid. Special thanks to Ellie Soderstrom, Kolurz Voss (pictured at the very bottom of this post), and others who graciously donated their goodies for us to use this month. The booth definitely ended up taking more of a ‘game of thrones’ feel than straight up ‘fairy tale’ haha, but I think it turned out perfect. This was me, testing out some of the borrowed items… the broadsword is actually borrowed for a separate series I’m working on, and was, alas, a bit too realistic (ala dangerous) to have out at the booth. Doesn’t mean I couldn’t wield it in the parking lot…

Enjoy looking through these, and just so you know, it’s only a preview… the FULL BATCH will hit facebook sometime in the next week-to-week-&-1/2. Thanks guys! 🙂

mr. Corwin

38b

 

This is Corwin. I don’t really need to say a lot about the little guy…. his cuteness is way more powerful than any words I can type about him. Let me just say thanks to mom Sarah & dad Rory for giving me the privilege of photographing him, out on their beautiful property near Seneca, Missouri.

The eyes are blue, the grass is green, and my job is fun. 🙂

Max :: year 3

I’d like to re-introduce you to a young man always known for being in motion. True, most 3 year olds are known for that… but maybe not quite like Max…

It may have something to do with Max’s dad owning a gym and having been on ‘American Ninja Warrior’ this past year. I am sure there are better versions of this clip somewhere, but if you’re curious to see both dad Casey and mr. Max featured on national TV, you can take a look here:

 

The Finleys are also just pretty awesome people, and it was so cool to get to work with them for the third year running (it’s now tradition to have a new session done and book put together around Max’s birthday each year). Mom Leslie and brand new baby brother Jett complete the picture… I am sure we’ll have another session before long devoted more to the little guy.

Just wait til HE can move! 🙂

my view on a good portion of the shoot… not many toddlers get their own bounce house brought to a photo shoot. 🙂

the same shot from the beginning of the post, cropped out to its’ original format. No photoshoppery to make the kiddo look like he’s ‘flying’, just lots of air between dad and son.

I SWEAR I did not pose him. Mr. GQ…

Baby Corban

Hannah has been my cousin since… well, as long as I can remember. (I guess it’s that way with most cousins, hmm?)

After growing up with someone, it’s so strange- in a good way of course- to see them grown up, married, and now with a baby. Honestly though, I’m sure it’s much stranger for her to see ME grown up (or as grown up as I’ll get)… I imagine most of my cousins never thought that would happen. 😉

I traveled to Kansas City for this shoot with now 6 week old Corban, and proud parents Hannah & Brock. Here’s what we got…
