family photo session

Fall Mini Sessions

 A couple of weeks ago I hosted Fall mini sessions at Lafayette park. I'm so grateful for all of the families that came out, especially the families that continue to support my business time and time again. THANK YOU!! :)

The Hinderer Family

When I photograph families my overall goal is to capture love. As cheesy as that may sound, its true. I'm not focusing on having everyone look at the camera, I'd rather capture the connection they share with each other...which also brings out natural smiles, happiness and joy. Its my goal to capture families as they are, in whatever season of life they are in...even the crazy toddler moments when it feels like total chaos! These are the memories that will bring a smile to your face twenty years down the road. I love this family session. Such a fun family full of love and happiness...and craziness with two small boys. :)


The Graves Family

I've been photographing this family since their engagement session! It's always a blessing to me to watch families grow and to be asked again and again to photograph their special moments! :)


The Ellermeier Family

Mama & Me mini sessions

"Of all the gifts that life has to offer, a loving mother is the greatest of them all." - unknown

Last weekend I held my first ever Mama & Me mini sessions. I'm so grateful for these mama's and their kiddos, I know it's not always easy stepping in front of the camera. ;)

The Owler Family

The Owler family contacted me a few weeks ago and said that they were interested in a large family session. The grandparents live in St. Louis but the rest of the kids/grand kids live out of state. They were all going to be in town over Memorial Day weekend and wanted to have pictures done, especially since there were a couple of new family members! I'm happy to have captured such sweet memories for this beautiful family and hope they cherish these photos for years to come. Thank you! :)
