Francesca | St. Louis Child Photographer

June 23rd, 2012

I love this shot of Francesca because she was just having so much fun. It was a blast to watch her go through her dance routines to pick my favorite poses for her dance shots. Francesca is a dancer at Charmette Academy of Dance and obviously loves to dance!

These images will be even more precious someday because they include a special childhood memory, her favorite teddy bear.

I even got to try out my new chalk board background for the first time – fun!!!

Thanks Francesca for being such a joy to work with!

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!

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!

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.

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

Center Stage Dance Academy| St. Peters Dance Photographer

June 16th, 2011

After so many years of practically living in the dance studio, I always enjoy any opportunity I get to hang out in a dance studio. I recently got the chance to spend some time at Center Stage Academy of Dance to photograph their dancers. The students, parents, and teachers were awesome and the photo shoots stayed right on schedule! Here are a few of my personal favorites from the week (It was so hard to choose!). An email with details on accessing the galleries will go to all parents by Saturday, June 18. Thanks for a great week!

Did I mention Edward & Jacob were there?

Cool tap costumes that lit up! We did these shots in the dark – a new experience!

Here’s a sample of a custom designed collage. Please contact me directly cathy@cathyhartmanphotography.com for details.

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!

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!
