Henry is ONE!

I know I've said it before but its worth repeating, I am so grateful for my loyal clients. I am honored each time a couple has me photograph their wedding and then again for newborn and family pictures. It's always a blessing for me to watch their families evolve and I'm so happy to capture all of their milestones. I photographed Alison and Clay's engagement photos, Henry's newborn and 6 month photos...and here we are at one year already. Gosh, time flies! Thank you so much, I hope you had a great birthday Henry! 


Natasha & Kerry / St. Louis Engagement Session

It's been an usually warm December, yet the day we shot these photos ended up being the coldest of the season. Go figure. I gotta hand it to Natasha though, she rocked that dress and didn't flinch at all. Looking at those pics you'd never guess it was 37 degrees!? Thank you guys so much, I'm excited for your May 2016 wedding. :)

Jon & Tippi / An Anniversary Session

A dear friend of mine and his wife recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary. I was so excited when they asked if I would take some photos of them to commemorate this moment. They are so very much in love and still act like teenagers who just started dating. I love that about them. Congrats Jon & Tippi and here's to 30 more years! Love you! :)

The Cole Family / St. Louis Family Photographer

It's said that families who play together, stay this case it's families who play guitar together stay together! Grant plays guitar and Brooks loves to hear is Daddy play. He loves it so much that he always try to "help" and they ended up buying him his own guitar. :)


Ashley & Lilly / St. Louis Family Photographer

"There will be so many times you feel like you’ve failed. But in the eyes, heart, and mind of your child you are Super Mom." - anonymous

I love this quote because as a mother I know the struggle is real. The struggle to try and do it all, the struggle for pinterest worthy meals, the struggle to be perfect. The thing is, our kids don't care about all of that and they love us no matter what. To them, we are perfect. Ashley and Lilly are mother and daughter...and best friends. Lilly loves her mama to the moon and back and to her...Ashley is super mom. Thanks ladies for a beautiful session! :)


Tamara & Jeff / Union Station Engagement Session

They met in their church's youth group several years ago. They were just friends at the time and after high school they each went their separate ways. Ten years later they bumped into one another and decided to catch up over coffee. During their conversation and coffee they realized that maybe there was something more than friendship and began dating. The rest as they say is history and they are now getting married! Tamara and Jeff, thanks for braving the heat with me for your engagement session. Here's hoping its a little cooler for your September wedding. :)
