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! 

 

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 Family Photographer/Jogerst New Addition!!!

I had the joy of meeting and working with the Jogerst family while Katie was pregnant with Mr. Nathan. This time I was welcomed into their home for an adorable family session with now 3mth old Mr. Nathan and spunky big brother Nick, who always reminds me I should be working out more, esp in the cardio department! 

I love this session and the cozy feel to their home. If you have been a JHP follower, you also know I am a huge sucker for doggies in family pictures....

 

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. 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 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/Phoenix Family Photographer/Stinson Family shoot at White Tank Mountains Arizona

Megan is a very near and dear friend to me. Recently she relocated to Phoenix for a better job for her husband so I decided I was going to go visit. How could I not visit without capture her and her adorable 4 kids. Gabe, Audra, Maxwell, and Ella. All of them are amazing kids and rather hilarious. 

Megan & I became friends when she won a contest I did for my photography business and we were instant friends. We then continued to bond or motherhood, wifehood, and just life. Megan has such a beautiful heart and I really enjoyed spending the weekend with her and her crew. 

Can't wait to go back Megan <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. 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.

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Jogerst Family Quail Ridge Park

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?
