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!

Nv Dance Force | St. Charles Dance Photographer

June 29th, 2011

I always love working with the dancers at Nv Dance Force! Last year we sweltered in the heat at Forest Park, and this year we started out in the cold rain in Old Town St. Charles. But, no matter the weather, the dancers are troupers! We finished with some groups outside around the studio, set up in doors for a few days, and finally got some great stage shots at the Showcase on June 18. Here are a few of my favorites.

Dancers Scott & Melissa

June 7th, 2011

I love sessions with dancers, and this session with Scott & Melissa was no exception! Scott was one of my students many years ago. He met his wife, Melissa while dancing on a cruise ship. They both now dance in Myrtle Beach. It was so much fun to hang out with them and their daughter Molly to get these shots.

What fun – jumping with mom & dad.

And rolling down the hill with dad.

Thanks Scott & Melissa for a great shoot!

John & Jackie Sneak Peek Part 2

May 26th, 2011

Here is part 2 of John & Jackie’s awesome wedding! I’ll be posting a slideshow tomorrow to include some of the reception shots. I’ve been smiling (and laughing) all day looking at those!

So glad the rain held off for the outdoor ceremony – it was beautiful!

The children’s vows and watering the family tree were both such special touches!

John & Jackie’s wedding was beautiful! Every detail from the music, to the setting at Wine Country Gardens, to the special touches in the ceremony fit them perfectly. Here’s part one of their sneak peek. Part 2 and a slideshow coming soon!

The swan even posed for this one.

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!

Phil & Renee

April 9th, 2011

It was such a pleasure to get to know Phil & Renee. They are an awesome couple, and I immediately felt as though I had known them and their family for years. The weather forecast did not look good for their wedding day at Hermann Hill. The prediction the entire week was 60-70% chance of rain and thunderstorms. But true to the unpredictability of Missouri weather, it didn’t happen! Just before their outdoor ceremony, the sky cleared, the sun appeared and four bald eagles flew overhead. It was truly breathtaking and gives me goose bumps thinking of the guitar music in the background as the eagles circled the Gazebo.

What a gorgeous bride! These images were taken on the deck overlooking the Missouri River at the cottage where Renee & Phil stayed at Hermann Hill.

Renee & Phil chose to see each other prior to the ceremony which gave us time to get some beautiful images of their love for each other.

 

I loved that they decided to dance on the rocks!

One of my favorite shots of the day – a little hint at what a fun couple they are!

A bald eagle flying over the Gazebo.

Imagine this beautiful site with the sounds of the guitar in the background.

The scene couldn’t have been more romantic as the bride entered with her father.

Renee had made special rocks for each of their parents as a reminder of the special day.

Perfect transportation for Phil, Renee, and their family – The Hermann Trolley – what fun!

Congratulations Renee & Phil and many wishes for a lifetime of happiness!

Olivia was such a joy to work with at her 6 month shoot. She is so sweet and good natured –  she even sat up all by herself. Check out the eyelashes on this girl – gorgeous!

Bella’s 6 months

February 21st, 2011

I can’t stop smiling as I edit these images of little Bella. What an adorable bundle of personality she is!

And this girl came ready for her photo shoot – she even brought her heels!

And like most girls, she loves pearls!

But that doesn’t mean she can’t rock a tough girl look!

She is just a precious little angel!
