St. Charles Newborn Photographer/Newborn Photographer/Jameson Patrick

Erika & Mac finally got to meet handsome Mr. Jameson Patrick after waiting a few days past due. I believe he has been nicknamed "Buck" by family and it is perfection with his adorable nursery. Austen is so proud to be a big sister that she did a sweet dance for me! We also got to hang out in her room and look at all her toys. Where when I asked if I could move it, she said, "You should just stick to your house." HAHAHAHA I love kids.  While shooting Austen cuddling her brand new baby brother with so much love, admiration, innocence and protection my gushy heart melted. It's going to be such a blessing to watch these two grow into best friends over the next year. 

Congrats Cormier family. He is perfect & I just adore your amazing family. 

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/Columbia Photographer/Landry - Newborn

RC & Lauren have prayed for sweet Baby Landry for a few years. You can tell how big of a miracle he is in just by the way Lauren looks at him. She has adapted into Motherhood which such patiences and grace. Spending the morning with them reminded me just how beautiful life is through children. 

Landry's nursery was a photographers dream as far as decoration. It was the cutest wilderness/lumberjack theme I have even seen. When my kids where little we did Winnie the pooh and Disney characters, the themes now are just elegant and so unique! 

Thank you Strands for welcoming me into your home to capture this beautiful moment in your life.

The Doggett's have been with Jheart since their engagement. Now two sweet little girls later, they are really loving all that life has to offer. Sweet MacKenzie was born after what Mom says was, "half a push and she was here! The doctor didn't even make it in!" Needless to say MacKenzie was very excited to join them and meet her big sister Annie! Ashley did an outstanding job decorating her nursery, so much so I might have her come redo my girls room!

Thank you Doggetts for adding another adorable baby girl for me to hang out with. 

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.
