Spring Awakenings

March 5th, 2013

It is hard to believe with the dreary weather and snow today that spring is only 14 days away! I am ready for the emergence of new life and the carefree beauty of the outdoors that comes with this time of year. Along with the arrival of spring, I have plans for a fresh start in my photography business. Several people have asked me recently why I haven’t been blogging so I thought I’d give a quick update.  I’ve been very busy this winter working on some exciting ideas that I will be sharing soon on my newly designed website and blog. For those of you who have not heard, I now live in St. Charles and will be staying in the area. I really have spring fever right now and cannot wait to get back outdoors for more sessions.

Here are a few reminders from last spring to “warm” you up on this cold winter’s day.

First Tuesday in April | St. Louis Photographer

April 3rd, 2012

Today’s Tuesday blog is accompanied with record heat for a St. Louis April.

April?  Already April and it feels like June.  Easter is just around the corner and I feel like I should be watching nature bloom and yet I find myself wanting to pull out my swim suit and head out back for a dip in the pool.  What is up with our crazy weather patterns lately and where does the time go?  Much of my work this week has me asking myself this very question.  Well, not really about the weather, but about the passing time.

Babies…Babies…Babies!  I absolutely love my newborn and baby sessions.  This week brought me so much fun in two   families and their sweet baby girls.  Sophia and Olivia were simply angels as we adorned them in tutus, bunny wear, and even police uniforms.  These two beautiful babies were each just about a week old and I am so pleased with all the creativity used in their shoots.  I just love it when the parents are willing to be creative with me.  It sure makes for some pretty amazing photos.  It’s working with these little newborn’s that often has me wondering where the time goes.  I offer a Bebe Collection to my clients wanting newborn sessions. It’s a program that offers parents a discounted price and other specials with four custom portrait sessions as their baby grows: newborn, 3 months, 6-9 months and 12 months.  Parents can rest assured that they have a pre-paid session ready and waiting when the time comes.  I worked with little Roman last Thursday for his one year old session, his parents Gina & Leo are dear friends of mine.  It seems like just yesterday we were doing his newborn session.  I can’t believe he is already one year old and such a go-getter.  Gina and I had such a blast playing with him to get the shots we wanted.  It was precious time spent for sure.

Sunday evening had me reminiscing over time again as I headed to Quail Ridge Park to meet Krista & Adam for a maternity session.  Although it was a hot afternoon, it didn’t keep us from capturing great images of this special time in their life.  I couldn’t believe I was meeting Krista for a maternity session.  She used to be one of my dance students and now she is about to be a mommy.  Krista and Adam are a sweet couple and I loved spending time with them.  I also love that they are keeping the sex of the baby a secret until the arrival.  I can’t wait to meet their new one for a newborn session – only a few weeks away!

The weekend also brought an engagement session downtown.  Lindsey and Adam had a perfect day for a shoot at the City Garden, Busch Stadium, and The Arch Grounds. It was fun to get to know this couple a little better before their big day at Hermann Hill on April 21st.

I’m looking forward to my family being home for Easter.  Preparations are now underway for a houseful.  Can’t wait!

Tip of the week:  Happy Easter!!  Have any little ones to surprise?  Here is a link for some fun printouts and Easter treats.  Enjoy!!  http://www.welovetoillustrate.com/2012/04/free-easter-printables.html

Until Next Tuesday!

I don’t think I’ve ever photographed a newborn who slept so soundly throughout his entire shoot.  Thank you Kelsey & Nick for sharing this sweet little guy, and I love the props you brought along!

It was so much fun to meet Macie – I just want to squeeze those cute chubby cheeks! She was such a sweetheart through all of her clothing changes, although by the last outfit she was a little worn out.

Sweet Baby Girl

February 8th, 2012

At only eight days old, Camryn was very calm and content for her photo session ~ at least as long as we kept her tummy full!

What a lucky girl to have big brother Scott!

Awe!

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!

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!

Alaina

May 18th, 2011

I always love newborn shoots and sweet baby Alaina was no exception! The session was even more special because she is the granddaughter of some great friends Greg & Angie. She was just precious, sleeping and posing like a little doll!

She even gave us a smile!

It was so much fun to be able to incorporate all the purple!

And her special blanket with her name on it!

Big Brother Justin is very proud of her!

What a cute nursery!

And I love the way her hair curls around the back of her head!
