I go by SideShowMom because we are fans of The Simpsons and a friend used to call me Sideshow Mel. If you have small kids, you know that life takes on a certain…craziness. I changed the name to reflect my domain and life with the kidlets. I am Malinda Welte to most of my friends, and I have a family name that will stay in my family. I was born and raised and currently live in Missouri, living in the Northland of Kansas City now. My profession is photography, especially landscape, black & white, portraiture and nature. Currently, I am full-time Mommy.
