Fall photography

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Stephens Family

Despite Mr. Grant showing up with pants covered in water, from an exciting ride to the park, the Stephens family were a joy to capture. Mom says he is a serious little boy so smiles weren't easy, but as soon as Mom & Dad started the tickles all was well! 

Lafayette Park is really starting to look gorgeous with color! I can not wait for all the spring colors to emerge!!

St. Charles Photographer/St.Charles Family Photographer/Ellie turns 2

Miss Ellie is one of the cutest tiny humans on the planet. She was a little shy at first with me and then before I knew it she was jumping on the bed and dancing for me. It is incredible to think little miss is 2 now and going to be a big sister! Ellie is going to be amazing at reading books and teaching her little sister to jump and dance! Thank you Remiger family for welcoming me into your home to capture Ellie turning two. I loved the in home session while she played in her room. I can't wait to meet the new addition to your family.

The Jogerst family is getting ready to go from a family of 3 to a family of 4 weighing heavy on the boy side. That's right, Another baby brother is due in February! We were worried we were going to get rained out, but for the 30minutes we met up for, it was the most gorgeous sky the whole time. We even started to sweat a bit! So thankful Mother Nature held out! 

Isn't Nick's smile the best?

 

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Sophie Lafayette Park

When Sophie walked up with her perfectly colored lace dress and matching flower crown, I knew that we were going to have a beautifully colored photo shoot. The falls leaves with her maroon dress were so good. Sophie really liked the camera too. She had fun while twirling and tickling mom & dad to showing me a very special pet she brought with her for pictures. 

Thank you Mom for finding me and asking me to capture these for you!

Paula is a high school friend of mine that thanks to the amazing Facebook we have been able to reconnect. I 100% love seeing old high school friends. It is such a blessing to get to see where life has taken them. Paula is married to an officer and they have two beautiful children. Little miss took some warming up, but after that it was such a wonderful shoot. The fall colors at Lafayette Park are just breath taking this time of year and really was the perfect location for these fall mini's. 

 

 

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Autumn & Summer

Autumn & Summer were a wonderful twin sister duo session at Quail Ridge park in St. Charles. Immediately I knew we were going to have so much fun because they way they interact with each other can make anyone giggle and have a good time! I loved the way they made each other laugh!

I met Amanda in high school through my sister. Then my Sophomore year I had French class with her. Ever since then Amanda has been referred to in our family as our adopted redheaded big sister. Amanda started doing hair in high school, and somehow convinced my sister to let her razor cut it. It looked really cute!

Now Amanda is running her own salon, The Maplewood Beauty Bar, off Manchester in St. Louis and it is a family affair! Mark takes care of the back office stuff and Morgan can be found there some weeknights supporting his Mama. 

Amanda is not only an amazing hairstylist and business woman, she is an amazing friend, mom, and all around person. Morgan is an amazing kid that loves to make people laugh. I do believe he picked this up from Mark who I can't be around without laughing. 

I was over joyed to be able to capture this moment for this beautiful family of three. I can not wait to see what the year ahead bring to you.
