Baby Eli

I photographed Missy and Mike's engagement session and their wedding a couple of years ago. It's always such a blessing to me to watch couples grow and start their families and I'm so honored when they have me at each milestone event. Sweet little Eli is so precious, and soon he will become a world traveler; Missy and Mike are moving to Indonesia to become missionaries for two years! Best wishes Towers family! :)


Daniel is ONE!

It seems like it was just a short time ago that I photographed Daniel's newborn session, and here it is one year later! My oh my how he's changed! He loves chasing around his older brothers and sister, loves to eat cheerios, likes his choo choo book and loves his mommy and daddy...and he gives a good stink eye to photographers who get in his way. ;)


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 Hinderer Family / St. Louis Family Photographer

I don't even remember who liked who's photo first or who friended who first, but Lindsey and I met on social media (more than likely it was Instagram). We knew that we were both living in St. Louis but had never actually met...until recently. A couple of weeks ago I had the privilege of photographing Lindsey's adorable family. I was a nervous wreck because A) Lindsey is an amazing photographer herself and B) I put the digital camera aside and shot this session entirely on film. Oye, the pressure. ;)  Lindsey is fabulous and her family is so cute I can hardly stand it. I'm so thankful that we finally met and grateful that they allowed me into their home to document their afternoon. Thank you Lindsey! :) (shot on kodak film developed & scanned by Richard Photo Lab)
