Moments in the Midwest

Photography by Stephanie Gallipeau Photography


G’morning Mr. Mushroom


A benefit of taking your daughter to work super early in the morning… foggy sunrise picture opportunities!!


Leia is fitting in well, she loves cuddles when she’s not being super playful.

The Forth of July was a “blast!”


Just one of the bazillion shots I got of tonight’s firework show. 💥

A little July 2nd fun ❤️🤍💙


The first day of July was a success! Had a lot of fun at our “Friendependence Day” get together.

Some shots I took while camping this past weekend


Met this little guy while camping this weekend 🐢


It’s the beautiful pocket of morning light and the backwards hat for me 😍

Another shot in my “Where I Stand” series because I had to document the fact that it was a nice 70 degree fall day in the middle of November… gotta love midwest weather!



He must’ve partied hard last night…

Stormy Summer Night in Independence


Never been one for eye contact even though mama is a photographer… still the cutest pup ever though!


Why go out? 🤷🏻‍♀️

I will never get tired of swimming pool shots!!


I’m such a “stop and stare at the sky” kind of girl.

Me and my newest high school grad went and did her photos last weekend… better late than never! So proud to be her mom! 💙❤️🤍


The temperature is up… but our pool isn’t yet… so we make do with the little blow up one for now!


Learned to do flips today... he was so proud of himself!


My youngest daughter is obsessed with this doll that I’ve had since I was about 3 years old. Anytime I bring it out she tries to sneak away with it. I brought it out today to use it as a model while practicing some off camera flash... she noticed it and so they both became my models. ☺️


5.17.21 | Stir Crazy
It’s rained all weekend and supposed to continue all week... it’s only Monday and we’re already going stir crazy inside... so me and Bella got outside for a quick play with the multiple exposure setting on my camera in between rain showers.

4.20.2021 | A month into Spring and there was probably 2 inches of snow on the ground today 😒 Luckily it was gone just as fast as it was here. I love how these pictures show the “fight” between Spring and Winter.

Just a cool looking tree on a gloomy day. 🌳


It’s been so windy today here in the Kansas City area that there’s not much effort on her part to swing... nature is doing it for her lol.


Since the start of the pandemic, our “little” family began having “Backyard Saturday/Sundays”. We grill, listen to music, chat, have fires and s’mores and play in the yard (and swim once summer hits). It’s become a nice accidental tradition we started last year while on lockdown. I’m so glad the weather is getting nice again to start it back up. We got to have our first (two) this weekend. It’s something all the kids enjoy and look forward to on the weekends.


After school relaxing


03.03.21 | I’ll never get tired of photographing the kids on their trampoline. The joy in their faces are priceless.
