I had a fun session with the Cole family last weekend. Little Miss Tatum is 9 months old! Mommy wanted to get a few pics to test out the unicorn hat for her upcoming first birthday. Adorable!
A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing an elopement! Brennan has been traveling between St. Louis and Europe for work for the last several months, and Sarah will be joining him in November. They decided to go ahead and elope to make the work visa process easier and smoother. Sarah and Brennan will return to St. Louis next September and have a bigger wedding to celebrate with friends and family. :)
This past weekend I held mini family sessions and all of the proceeds went to Operation Christmas Child. A huge thank you to all of the families that came out and donated items for this cause. With all of the proceeds and items donated we had enough to fill 50 boxes! That's 50 children who will receive a box of gifts at Christmas. Thank you!

Oh my goodness. This family is the cutest. I met them last year and the girls were not quite one and not very mobile. Flash forward to now, the identical girl triplets are two and very much mobile! They are so precious, their bright blue eyes, curly locks and little rompers! Adorable!
I met with Maggie and Brent on a very windy morning for their engagement session. It seemed every time I tried to get the shot a big gust of wind would stir up and Maggie's hair would fly around! Ha. Maggie and Brent, thank you for driving down and for putting up with my crazy ideas, looking forward to your wedding next June!
I had the privilege of photographing this sweet little family last weekend. Ruthie is the cutest little girl, 13 months old and on a mission! There was no slowing down, unless she was stopping to pick another dandelion. ;)
When Lindsay was in high school she began thinking about dating and wondering about qualities she would look for in a boyfriend and later down the road, a future husband. Unlike most teenage girls Lindsay wasn't dead set on smoldering good looks, instead she prayed for a Godly man. A man who loved Jesus and who would show her the same kind of love. She went on to college and graduated from the University of Indiana...still praying for this man to come into her life. She was accepted to Grad school in Ohio and went to a bible study one evening, it was there that she met Devin. He was a Godly man, a man she had prayed for...and he wasn't bad looking either. ;) They like most couples have had ups and downs but through it all their faith remained and made them stronger. Lindsay and Devin were married last weekend, they shared their love and commitment to each other before God, their families and friends. Lindsay and Devin, thank you SO much for bringing me to Northern Illinois to photograph your wedding! I know God has great things in store for you both and I wish you all the best! Much love and thanks! - A :)
They met in college, their Freshman year to be exact. They instantly hit it off and knew this was unlike any other relationship they had been in. Christina and Chad shared so many common interests, traveling, food (Christina says they are foodies and love trying new restaurants) and trips to Disneyland. After being together for nearly nine years they were married a few weeks ago in sunny Walnut Creek, CA. I was honored to be a part of their beautiful day! Thank you for flying me out Christina and Chad I had a wonderful time with you and your families! :)
Alexandra and Brandin were married a few weeks ago. They opted for a small intimate wedding with only family and close friends. It was simple, laid back and perfect. :)
Amanda started taking classes at a local boxing gym a couple of years ago; she expected a great workout, but never imagined finding her future husband there. Amanda and Romeze had a couple of classes together and after a few friendly encounters, Amanda invited Romeze to grab a drink after class. The rest as they say, was history. I met up with Amanda and Romeze last week for their engagement session, it only made sense to take a few photos were it all began. I love these pics! There was something about the boxing ring that seemed better in black and white, I love how they turned out! Amanda and Romeze thanks for braving the cold wind that day, here's hoping the weather will be better in June! :)
