Cormier Family - Jameson 4mth/St. Charles Photographer/Blanchette Park St. Charles

The Cormier family has been with Jheart since Austen was born and watching her grow into a kid really has me in a fit of giggles. Now with the addition of Jameson, her pinchable cheeked baby brother, I almost can't handle editing their albums. His looks of "What in the world have I gotten into" and her free spirit had me laughing so hard I had to video flipping through the images to their Mom! All laughs aside, Jameson is perfection. A chubby, bald, cheeky smiled bundle of perfection. Can you believe the flowers at Blanchette Park in St. Charles??? I love what they have done with the garden area! 

 

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!

Maverick + Oakley + Watermelon/St. Charles Family Photographer

I have to admit that Maverick walking + some yummy watermelon + their adorable doggie Oakley, made my top 10 favorite shoots. Maverick's wobble walk while trying to stuff his cute cheeks with watermelon was, well....I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Another Quail Ridge shoot for the win!

 

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 Family Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Baby Harrison

Meet Mr. Harrison. Born on Friday October 13th. He has worked really hard to get here, and then at the last minute decided he was going to change his mind. Danielle had a quick amazing 6hour labor, hours of pushing, to find out Harrison was trying to come out back first causing for a c-section. Danielle didn't take to the numbing medicine so she ended up missing the first 45 minutes of Harrison's life. But he is here, and she could not be anymore excited. I think she is equally as excited to eat sweet again as while she was pregnant she had gestational diabetes. 

So welcome Mr. Harrison. I know your Mommy & Daddy are over the moon to have you here. 

St. Charles Photographer/St. Charles delivery photographer/Welcome to the world baby Waylon

Capturing a birth is one of the most amazing things someone can ask me to be apart. Hanging out with a couple while they wait one of the most sentimental moments of their life is a huge honor.

I knew I was going to love these two when I walked in and they were rocking out to music while they attempted to get more sleep. Erica let me know about 6:30pm that she had already been in labor for about 13 hrs & they were still not quite ready to go to the hospital. Then around 9:30 she let me know they were headed to the hospital since the contractions were 5 minutes apart. Unfortunately the hospital sent her home because she was still only 2cm dilated. So the story goes...she went home, took a shower, some Benadryl...got out of the shower...and water broke! Back to the hospital they went at about midnight! 

I got the call to finally join them at 4am, when she hit 8cm and the nurses felt like he was going to be coming pretty quickly at that point. However handsome Mr. Waylon was NOT ready....he spent another 4.5 hours inching his way out. With the final push that brought him into the world, he barely cried, he just snuggled right up to Mom. I am so excited to get to see them all again soon to shoot his newborn pictures so make sure you keep an eye out for that!

St Charles Newborn Photographer/St. Charles Photography/Baby Christopher - 24hrs New

Sweet baby Christopher! It has been a long time since I have had the joy of holding a sweet newborn, probably about a year since my nephew was born, and it was magical. I forget how sweet they smell and how cuddly the are in your arms! Kristen and Josh now have 5 beautiful children and are such a sweet family. Kristen delivered at St. Luke's which is just outside of St. Charles in Chesterfield and she had many good things to say about her delivery experience. Considering she is a pro now I am glad that they took good care of her and baby. Good enough that she got to go home right after this shoot!

St Charles Newborn Photographer/Family Photographer Jheart Photography/Ashlie & Baby Maverick

Ashlie messaged me while she was pregnant with Mr. Maverick to document his birth, well as luck would have it she went into labor while I was on my honeymoon. I was so bummed that I missed it but we found another way for me to finally meet this handsome fella. Ashlie wanted to do an amazing & special gift for Maverick's first father's day & I think she had the perfect idea! I will never say no to capturing a moment for a gift and this was is just too special. We met up at Quail Ridge Park in St. Charles, one of my favorites, to shoot this amazing love between Mama & Baby.

One thing she said was that this is the moment she has waited a long time for, being a mother is the only thing her heart has ever really desired. Taking him home from the hospital was almost unbelievable, and then to wake up to him everyday and just get to be his Mom...

This session really made my heart smile....
