St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Charles Cake Smash/Ellie's Wild One Cake Smash!

Wobbly walking one year olds that crush their cake smash are exactly what life is about. Mom had the perfect outfits, with an adorable crown to showcase Ellie's Wild One birthday! After chasing her throw Quail Ridge I can confidently say, she is a "Wild One" & I might need to do more cardio in my spare time......

Quail Ridge park is my absolute favorite park, especially at sunset. They have a few playgrounds, disc golf, and a doggy park!

So I am conducting a poll...anyone else eat cake like this? NO? Just Ellie & I? hmmm...well you are missing out!

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Wright City Wedding Photographer/Pogrelis Wedding

This season is causing me to majorly fall in love with intimate backyard weddings. Whitney & Ben's property was the perfect spot for them to say "I do!" I had so much fun with them and their entire wedding party. 

Have you ever seen a more stunning bride? Whitney in her gorgeous dress that she personalized to her style and the attention to details she put into the whole day really made this wedding beautifully unique. 

Thank you so much Ben & Whitney for asking me to capture these for you. It was such a blessing to be apart of your forever. 

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. Louis Photographer/Jessica & "Bean"

I almost couldn't contain my excitement when Jessica messaged me with her Mommy & Me session idea. How can you NOT love Tutu's & Heels & Cowgirl boots?? 

Jessica is an amazing Mama. She is rocking is single Mama life with a beautiful little girl whom she nicknamed "Bean"! (I love the nickname!)  The joy from the session really filled my heart with so much happiness. I love when clients come up with amazing ideas that bring their personality to the shoot!

St. Charles Photographer/St. Louis Photographer/MacKenzie 6mth

I absolutely can not believe how quickly my milestone babies grow. MacKenzie has grown into the best cheeky baby I have ever seen. Big sister Annie is also a rockstar with baby sister. I love that I get to see this family every few months to capture these moments and check up with them! Indian Camp Creek Park is such a beautiful location and excitedly starting to turn green!! This was an session that helped me get out of this never ending winter doom....It made me hopefully Spring will be here soon! Now time to check out those cheeks!!

 

St. Charles Wedding Photographer/Warrenton Wedding Photographer/Wyatt Wedding

One of the greatest pleasures of my job is having a bride who is stellar at DIY. Sarah & Ryan's backyard farm wedding was the perfect setting for all of Sarah's gorgeous decoration work. Sometimes meeting a bride & groom for the first time on their wedding day is nerve racking, but after watching Sarah look at Ryan with such love an admiration, I knew this day was going to be perfect. 

When I asked Sarah what they are most excited about it she said this, "We see marriage as a union of two people dedicated to spend their lives together"....and if you really look at their faces in these images, you can see how much love is between them. 

I had a magnificent time hanging out with their families, helping them eat a whole hog roast, and sampling the delicious homemade carrot cake. I mean, how could I not??

This was a perfect day to start your "beginning"

St. Charles Newborn Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Lorelei

Lindsey & Dan never share the name of the baby, unless you are their photographer & then you get to know secrets! When they told me the newest addition to their family was named Lorelei, I immediately fell in love and then after meeting her fell in love all over again. Loralei was calm, sleepy, and wanted nothing but snuggles! She is so precious, that even big sister is over the moon for her and of course her two guard dogs.

Congratulations Remiger Family! Looking forward to watching both these girls grow in the next year. #jhpfamily

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 Maternity Photographer/Remiger Baby makes 4

Lindsey & Dan are getting ready to welcome Baby girl #2 and if she is anything like sweet wild Miss Ellie they are truly going to have their hands full of so much love. We ended up with a gorgeous January day & were able to shoot outside at Quail Ridge Park.

Lindsey is absolutely stunning pregnant & it was such a joy to get to capture this moment for them. Hopefully Dan is ready for a house full of ladies!!

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.
