KC's Dedicated 12 | Special Project by Royal Photography

In the next few weeks, Kansas City will recognize twelve outstanding citizens for their community service and dedicated commitment to their employers. Unfortunately, I’m not at liberty to disclose which organization will be honoring them but let’s just say they will stand amongst the elite. The seven portraits above are their official photos that I took during their personal photo session; the remaining five (not pictured) submitted photos taken by their employers – it wouldn’t be ethical to display their photos knowing I didn’t take them. This is one of many special projects that I started late December and will come to an end mid-January 2012.

The distinguished twelve – beginning with the seven displayed above are:

  • First row: Brandon Edington, Munro Richardson, Menneka Scott
  • Second row: Dwight Hawkins, Evelyn Garner, Milton Fowler, Jr.
  • Bottom: Ravenell Powell
  • Not pictured: Frances Foster, Grant Lewis, Greg Epperson, Marc Luckett, and Sharil Parente

Stay tune for the big announcement in the next couple of weeks.

New Rave Comment About Royal Photography, LLC

Today we received a lovely rave review from Will and Carolyn who married on Friday, August 5, 2011. Their wedding took place at the St. Michael & All Angels Episcopal Church and their reception was held at the Homestead Country Club. I wanted to share these kind words (see below - italics) to our followers. Thank you Will and Carolyn and hope to see you after the Christmas holiday to pickup your wedding albums.

I originally chose this photographer because his pictures online were amazing and he certainly delivered! Sam is very personable and takes the time to get to know you before the big day. He knew how to capture our funny personalities and remain professional. I really appreciated that he posted pictures on his blog days after the wedding - our guests enjoyed seeing photos so quickly. Also, after becoming friends on FB, he tagged us in those photos so my FB friends could comment, which was above and beyond what I expected. Give Sam a call and you will not regret the decision!

Centeio Outdoor Family Session by Royal Photography

This weekend wasn't too bad for outdoor family photos. Tara and her three lovely children braved the brisk afternoon chill for pictures. I know Tara hears this all the time but I have to mention that she is the identical look-alike to Tracee Ellis Ross, prominent Hollywood actress. If you don't believe me, Google her and you be the judge. The photo above is one of my favorites - just because of the mannerisms of her youngest child. Tara, there will be more to come...please stay tune and keep watching your inbox. ◦

Meet the Robinson's | Family Session by Royal Photography

It's a beautiful feeling to photograph returning customers. A few years back, I photographed Warren and Channa's wedding here in Kansas City since then they are the proud parents of a beautiful baby girl. During the session, I concurred that she looks like Warren but after editing all the photos, she is a GOOD MIXTURE of both of them. This photo session served a dual purpose (1) family portrait and (2) family photos for their Christmas Cards. Mr. & Mrs. Robinson, you have a B-E-Utiful family.

Portraits in the Park by Royal Photography

This season has been the busiest for me in the family portrait arena. Last week, I photographed the 'Peghee' family in a local park. They have the cutest puppy, Jazz - they say he's a puppy but in my eyes he's BIG dog. Needless, he behaved well for all the pictures; for a minute he wanted to jump after all the geese that were swimming in the pond.

A rule to all photographers, do not take your coat off on a windy day and lay it on the rocks outlining the pond. Mother nature MIGHT just want to teach you a lesson by blowing it in the water. Luckily, Donnie was able to catch it before it floated away. Thanks Donnie for the quick hands.

One Night Stand Concert Tour | Royal Photography Special

Friday nights are normally spent at home watching movies but this time I embarked on something new - I went to a concert. Thanks to my brother, David, the Missouri State Post newspaper and my new friend, Mitch...for giving me the opportunity to photograph the 'One Night Stand' concert tour at The Midland, featuring Bobby Valentino, Chrisette Michele, and Avant. Over 1200 attended the event. Let's just say my ears are still ringing. I posted a few of my favorite emotional photos. Let me know your thoughts.
