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.

Henry | St. Peters Newborn Photographer

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!

Melissa & Mike Married | Hermann Wedding Photographer

March 12th, 2012

Mike & Melissa’s wedding turned out  beautifully. I cannot believe how quickly they were able to make plans and pull it all together. Their busy lives kept getting in the way of setting a date for their wedding.  So, on a Friday in February they purchased their marriage license and on Saturday morning they booked Hermann Hill Chapel. Melissa called me immediately after to see if I would be able to photograph their wedding the next day.  I’m so happy I was available to be a part of this intimate family wedding.  On Saturday they had purchased a wedding dress, dresses for the girls and rented tuxes for the guys. Hermann Hill took care of the cake and flowers for them and they had a beautiful and moving ceremony on Sunday afternoon.  No guests, just this new family of 5 consisting of a bride, groom and their 3 children.  It was one of the sweetest weddings I’ve ever been blessed to shoot.  Their 12 year old daughter even gave a beautiful speech when they cut their cake, which I caught on video. Be sure to click the link at the bottom of this blog to see a slideshow of more images from their special day including this sweet speech. I was thrilled to have met this family – It was a happy day!

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!

Lillian

January 26th, 2012

I am thankful every day for being blessed with such a wonderful job. Singing and laughing with 2 year old Lillian made my day – what a sweetheart!

Not sure what’s going through her little mind right here, but I love this expression!

Belly laughs are awesome!

Happy 2nd Birthday Lilly!

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!

Tyler turns two | St. Peters Family Photographer

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!
