When Alli and I were planning her maternity session, a few words kept popping up. Earthy, Natural, and Cozy. The cozy part was the hardest, seeing as we had her maternity session in March when it was still oh-so-cold! But these two were troopers and we kept Alli warmed up in between photos with an […]
Imagine this with me if you will – you’re planning to welcome the newest little love-of-your-life into the world. You might be a little overwhelmed with all the fancy gadgets you find yourself bringing home and maybe you’re even taking a class or two to understand the entirely new shift that is about to take […]
An annual tradition! I love, love, love ringing in the holidays with a festive photoshoot! Mid-late November we plan a holiday bash just in time to get those Christmas cards in the mail. Special thanks to Settings STL for use of their beautiful studio. Here are a few of my favorites from this year!
Baby showers are so fun! Everyone is excited for the new little one and between the games, the finger-foods and the gift-opening, there are so many cute moments to capture. I don’t find myself photographing many baby showers, mainly because they so often coincide with my weekend weddings. However, I have a couple tried-and-true assistants […]
One of the reasons that I truly love my job is that I get to witness my client’s lives grow and change over the years. Sarah and Jared started as one of my wedding couples and it’s beautiful to see them adjusting to life now as parents. We focused on an in-home, documentary style session […]
I LOVE birthday sessions! What better time to celebrate yourself and get some beautiful portraits done? When Eda expressed interest in doing a 30th birthday session on Main Street St. Charles, near Christmas time last year, we casually joked about how great it would be if it snowed…And boy, did it SNOW!! This Birthday girl […]
Congratulations, class of 2020! Kaitlyn is my cousin and the youngest of about twenty of us Thomas-side kids. I have watched her grow into such a beautiful woman and I am so, so proud of her! She is an incredibly talented dancer and is planning on attending The University of Alabama (Roll Tide!) in the […]
Joy and Eliza and baby makes three! I LOVED the concept of a maternity/mommy-and-me session! It was such a unique and beautiful way for Joy to document this special time in their lives. We spent a casual afternoon in Faust park and focused on soaking in all the candid moments we could.
Extended family sessions are so lovely and one of my favorite to photograph! As the oldest of five children and part of a large, and very close, extended family myself, it always makes me so happy to shoot these. The Graham’s reached out to me and scheduled a session near Thanksgiving, when all the out-of-state […]
This sweet family! I have so much love for the Fenske’s, not only are they the most kind and generous people you could meet, but also Jenna and Ian were one of my first wedding couples, years ago now! It’s hard to believe how quickly time passes sometimes. Ian is in the military and their […]
