St. Louis family

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. 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!

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.

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 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.

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.
