Maverick Creek Session/St. Charles Family Photographer/Brommelsick Park

I don't think I will ever get tired of taking pictures of Mr. Maverick. This time in a creek with frogs, rocks, lemons and strawberries! His scrunchy nose smile makes me laugh and giggle every time! Brommelsick Park in St. Charles is turning out to be a great new spot for sessions. 

Hopefully this cutie makes you smile!

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Mollie & Henry : Mommy & Me Session

Mollie was one of my best friends in 4th grade, Mrs. Clark's class, we go very far back. Seeing her now, as a mother, to beautiful Mr. Henry whom had my heart from the moment I saw those cheeks, really brought me so much joy. I even got to see her Mom, who used to be my Girl Scout leader! 

Henry is a baby that you just want to kiss those cheeks and chubby toes! He is not only head over heels for Mama, but Grammy can make him giggle so good! Henry is 6 months worth of love and laughter. 

St. Charles Photographer/St.Charles Maternity Photographer/Cormier waiting for baby Jameson

Mac and Erika are an amazing beautiful couple who are enjoying their honeymoon phase by welcoming another little one. They are two extremely passionate people that are going to love this little boy fiercely, just like they do Big Sister Austen. I had an absolutely amazing morning capturing their love and joy for this new addition to their family. It's not often I get a couple that needs no direction in front of the camera. 

I can't wait to meet Mr. Jameson <3

 

 

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Amber, Travis, Kenz & Landon - Quail Ridge Park

The Irvin Family has always been a great joy to capture. Quail Ridge Park in Wentzville has been amazing this season, I absolutely love shooting there. I honestly can not believe how grown up and beautiful Miss Kenzie is, I think I first took her pictures when she was 7 or 8! Landon is an such a ham. I always know he is going to make me laugh during our session. This family always does amazing things in front of the camera that it makes my job that much more fun. Plus I think Amber needs to become my personal stylist. Her outfit choices are always so so good!

Irvins I hope you have an amazing holiday season & I can't wait to see you next year!

St. Louis Senior Photographer/St. Charles Senior Photographer/Christian Senior Session at St. Louis Arch

I hadn't been down to the arch grounds in a few years. I was delighted when Christian decided to shoot his session down there. When his Mom mentioned he was a soccer player and wanted some trick shots, I was so pumped! Senior's these days are just amazing. Christian was so pleasant to work with and really did amazing in front of the camera. Especially for him saying he wasn't very photogenic. I mean, look at this guy! Christian is looking forward to hopefully starting college in Colorado in the fall. 

Thank you Christian for hanging out with me and I hope you love the remainder of your senior year!

 

St. Charles Photographer/St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Charles Senior Photographer/Jordan

Jordan is a senior this year Hazelwood West & he said he is really enjoying it. He plays to use his A+ program and attend community college for two years. I went to high school with Amanda his mom & I also got to meet her two other boys. It was awesome getting to see where life has taken her. 

Jordan was so easy and fun to work with and that killer smile rocked these pictures. Thank you for hanging out with me and letting me capture this epic year for you!

St. Charles Photographer/St. Charles Family Photographer/Cherish & Steve 1 year

Cherish is my "best good friend"...said in my best Forest Gump voice. She is the kindest most genuine person I know. I don't think words can express how beautiful it is to see her happy in love. Bonus points because Steve is so good to her and an amazing man. I was beyond excited to shoot these. We even had an adorable doggie crash the party! 

St. Charles Photograper/St. Charles Newborn Photographer/Miss Megan

This is my first shoot with the Maestas' and they were just the most photogenic family. Miss Megan was welcomed by two very excited big sisters. I'm not sure what kind of super powers Kristin has to keep up with three amazing girls, but she is a rockstar at the "mom" thing. 

Even at 4 weeks new Megan was so sweet to photograph. Outside of a small fever scare, she has been an outstanding new addition. 

St. Charles Photographer/St. Charles Family Photographer/Cindy & Family on Fort Morgan Beach

While I was in Gulf Shores shooting the wedding, I had the pleasure of shooting their whole family on the Bride's side on Fort Morgan beach. I loved the theme the girls thought of...Super Heroes!! Each family represented a different one. Such a cute idea!

I truly love working with this family. Every time I am around them they remind me what family is all about. I am so glad we did these! Cindy & Steve are up to 13 grand babies! How fantastic is that! My heart will always be welcoming to big families. It is just such a joy to be surrounded by that much love!

St. Charles Engagement Photographer/St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Maggie & Catie Engaged

Maggie & Catie are in the 2018 Jheart Wedding Line up. Upon speaking with Maggie I immediately knew this was going to be a great relationship. As soon as I saw them interact with each other I had no doubt this session was going to rock. I asked Maggie a few questions prior to the shoot and one was asking to tell me the story of your proposal and let me tell ya...Maggie did not miss a beat when planning this....

Maggie sent Catie on a scavenger hunt through family and friends. She had cards and flowers delivered to Catie by amazing friends and loved family. She chose all the most important people in Catie's life to present this next life step in all the important places of their relationship. Like the spot where they first met and that is just so beautiful. It really shows why when asked what Catie's favorite thing about Maggie is her big heart. 

Then, after 2 clues, and a lunch with her family here is what the third clue read:

"#3 - You've gone from 1st, to 2nd and now 3rd.  Where do you go from here? Run home! Meet me downtown at our favorite venue.  The home plate from Busch Stadium 2, is where I'll be waiting for you"

Catie then was proposed to with Maggie down on one knee and of course she said yes! 

These two really have an amazing love and being in front of the camera didn't phase it one bit. They really made my heart full after shooting them and I think it really shows in these pictures.
