Small Business Showcase - Rock Creek Cafe - Overbrook, KS

T.H. Peterson: Can you tell me how Rock Creek Cafe came to be? Deborah: The Cafe came to be because of my family.  My grandfather was a key investor and consultant during the remodeling, even making a few  carpentry things for us. My uncle and parents were key people in the remodeling doing all the grunt work themselves. It was a grueling 7 month remodel but we came out all still friends.   T.H.

Elowyn Nova's newborn session - Interview with mom - Topeka Newborn Photographers

Elowyn did such an amazing job during her newborn session!!  She was easy to pose and slept the whole time. She was so calm and never once fussed. She looked absolutely adorable in her photos, and when we found out her late grandma loved sunflowers, we changed up the props and got some sweet images of her with them!!  How adorable!  It’s hard to pick favorites, but these are a few of ours. Thanks for checking out her session!! T.H. Peterson: What did you do when you found out you were pregnant? How did your husband react? Brooke: My husband and I were done having kids but something just told me to take a pregnancy test. And to my complete surprise, two little lines showed up. I was completely shocked and actually a little scared. I won’t lie, it was a little tough to accept. How were we going to handle 3 kids?? I FaceTimed my husband at work as soon as I found out and he thought I was playing a joke on him until I showed him the test.  T.H. P.: How did you come up with her name? Brook
