A little teaser and some of my favorite cuties!

Ok first,I couldn't narrow my favorite pics down from my two mini sessions with some of my best friends, so those pics are in the below posts, too many to cram into this one! LOL.

Second, for those of you that dont know, we just moved into a new house, (still inTopeka) and I am finally feeling settled in. I am super excited to be here with enough time to prepare for baby! We are on a count-down of less than 6 weeks till delivery, probably much closer to 4 than 6 actually, so I am trying to get alot done before he comes!

And last but not least...I have a BIG announcement to make! But not quite yet.... (how is that for a teaser!)

With the coming of baby number 3 for me BellaRay Photography will be going through a few major changes. I think that the majority of you will find them to be for the better too!

I will have a more limited schedule, but by setting normal "business hours" and having one set price it will save alot of you some of your hard earned $$. (we all could use more of that in our pockets now can't we!)But I will also be working on a schedule that better fits my family and simplifying my workflow, so WIN / WIN!

Ok, that is all the info for now, but keep an eye out this next week or two for details!ok, now go check out the two cuties in the following posts!


Wesley 2 Years!

Ok, this is Wesley! I have had the pleasure of photographing this little guy since he was brand new! In fact I even got to take his Mommy and Daddy's wedding pics! How fun is that? I cannot believe he is almost 2. I went to see his mommy (my good friend) and we ran outside to brave the 18 degree weather (which felt even colder because of the wind!) we only lasted maybe 15 minutes but were able to capture alot of this happy little guys personality! Isn't he just the sweetest little thing!?


Eli 6 Months!

I cannot believe that this little guy is 6 months already! This is my best friends baby boy and I am in LOVE with him!! I realized that I hadn't even picked up my "real" camera for almost a month because of the move and set out to take a few snaps of a few of my dearest friends this week, what I got in the few minutes I took with each i think you will agree are pretty darling!

These were just on his mommy's kitchen floor with some sweet window light coming in to brighten up his beautiful brown eyes! dont you just want to squeeze him!?? Ok, enough talk, here we go!

So here is our personal news....


Yup, that is right, we are expecting baby number THREE! This was quite a suprise, but one we are very excited to welcome into the family at the end of April!

Ok, so a little disclamer, this IS me, but is isn't what I look like currently. This was my last pregnancy only 16 short months ago! My hair was longer and I look about this size now and still have 3 months to go! :-)

My good friend and fellow Photographer Melissa Pfannenstiel of Captures In Time Photography took these!
Thanks Melissa!

Thought I would share a few since I dug them up and had fun looking back!


Oh, and after TWO girls, we are excited to announce that......

Keep watching the blog for info on the National Model search!!

Next will be more info on the other things we have in store!

Naomi is ONE!!

**First off, I know my poor blog has been neglected! (thanks for the reminder from those of you who look forward to new posts! ;-) )

I have had a busy summer, as I am sure you all have, I will try to get a few pics up of some of the sessions I have done, but you can also check out the galleries of the main site, as I have updated some pictures there!

Thanks, now on to Naomi!

I cannot believe this little sweetie is 1 years old! Although I guess I can as her and my daughter Jaylee are only 2 weeks apart! I took Naomi's newborn pictures and Wow how time flies! She was such a little sweetie for this session and still has the most beautiful eyes! Here is a little sneak peek for you guys!
