Amanda’s Family | St. Louis Family Photographer

July 8th, 2012

I absolutely love working with Amanda at weddings and getting the chance to photograph her with her beautiful family was even more fun! We met at their new home and captured some great memories of this important time in their lives. I can’t wait to help her put together a canvas wall display for her new home! We’ll post a picture when it’s finished. For now, here are a few of my personal favorites.

May Day Tuesday | St. Peters Photographer

May 2nd, 2012

This Tuesday finds me reflecting on all the reasons why I feel lucky to love pursuing my own business.

I love to be challenged; it forces me to grow in what I am passionate about.  I love to connect with my clients, the way I want to connect with them.  I love to give back to the community and devote extra time to organizations I believe in.  I love the feeling of pride that overwhelms me when I’ve created something on my own.  I love that I can find time for a work/life balance, and when my life needs me to take a break from work, my work allows me this opportunity.

Much of last week and the rest of this week, I will be devoting some time to my parents.  I am certainly thankful that when they need me, I can be there for them.  With that said, I don’t have much business to blog about this week.  However, I would like to take the opportunity to offer a FUN promotion.  By the way, this is yet another reason I love owning my own business….making a decision to do something FUN!

Take advantage of the beautiful weather late spring can offer with an outdoor family portrait.  Choose from any of our area’s most stunning parks, open spaces, urban locations or any other location that has a special significance to your family.  These sessions are always a lot of FUN and the natural, vibrant color these portraits offer is truly breathtaking.   Included in the $99 session fee you will receive 1 8×10 gift print and 1 Facebook image..  Availability is limited, so call to reserve your session today.

Kynley 11 days | St. Peters Baby Photographer

November 14th, 2011

There is nothing like a new baby all sweet and cuddly. Kynley was only 11 days old the day of her first photo shoot and such a doll to work with. What a fun job I have to meet wonderful families and their sweet new babies!

Looks like she already has daddy wrapped around her little finger!

I love this beautiful bunting her great grandma made for her!

She must too – look at that adorable little smile!

November 10th, 2011

Some of my favorites from a great session with a beautiful family and their adorable little guy Tyler who just turned two. Dark brown eyes and blonde curls – could he be any cuter?

McAFee Family | O’Fallon Family Photographer

July 28th, 2011

I’ve known Brian since he was a kid playing football with our son Chad so he almost feels like one of my kids. He now has a sweetheart of a wife, Laura and two beautiful children Hagen & Addison. I loved being able to spend some time with them recently and welcome baby Addison. Congratulations to a wonderful family! Feel free to leave them a comment on the blog.

Hagen is very proud to be a big brother!

Amazing what a bribe from dad to go to McDonald’s will do for a smile!

Addison was determined to stay awake and not miss a moment of her first photo shoot, but we did get a few sleepy baby shots. She is just precious!

Congratulations McAFee Family!

Thank Heaven For Little Girls | St. Charles Family Photographer | Hermann Family Photographer

June 21st, 2011

I had the pleasure of photographing two great families recently. The Wunderlich’s at their home near Hermann and The Bushong’s in Old Town St. Charles. Both families have two adorable little girls. The girls are all so sweet – I can’t stop smiling as I go through the photos from their sessions!

Grass in your toes is the funniest thing!

I’m a Little Teapot

Holiday Photo Shoots

December 1st, 2010

One missing tree stand, one very crooked tree, several tangled strands of lights, and a lot of mess later – my house is decorated for Christmas! I have 3 sets with trees inside, plus some fun props with the white background. We can also do holiday photos outside. Bring your kids, your family, and your pets. There’s still time to do a session and get custom designed cards.

David & Diane’s Family

September 9th, 2010

What an awesome place David & Diane have for a photo shoot! Add beautiful weather and a fun family and how could you not get great shots! Here are some of my favorites of their family.

Getting the dogs to all sit and look at the camera was really not as easy as it looks – great job guys!

I love this one!

And now for the boys favorite part – first we had to practice jumping on the count of 3.

And here goes the real thing!

I was very impressed Diane was able to not get her hair wet, and I think Trevor & Tyler would have let me take pictures of them jumping in the pool all day! Thanks for a great time guys!

My Grandkids

September 7th, 2010

It’s not often I get all eleven of my grandchildren together at one time, but when I do it’s crazy & awesome! Sometimes during a photo shoot people worry that their children aren’t behaving as well as they want them to, but it really doesn’t bother me. I don’t expect them to sit quietly and pose perfectly – that just wouldn’t be a normal day! Anyway, the best shots are when they’re being themselves. Here’s a few outtakes from how perfectly things went at the photo shoot with my eleven grandchildren.

The first step is to gather everyone into one general location

The next step is to keep the baby from crying and get everyone to look at the camera instead of Fen trying to run away.

It’s usually best if they don’t eat the mulch

Now, if we can just get one shot without goofy faces or cheesy smiles

No matter what, jumping and hanging out with your cousins is always a great time!

And, here are my favorite shots of the day

And number one – all eleven in one shot – priceless!
