st. Charles family photographer

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Lyla is 1 in a Melon!

When to very lovely, kind, beautiful people create life, you get a beautiful smiley baby girl. Sweet Lyla and her watermelon cake covered face I think really speak for themselves in this session. I couldn't contain myself when Mom told me she wanted to do a 1st birthday cake smash with watermelon!! I am now ready for long summer nights and yummy treats! 

Happy First Birthday Lyla!

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/Columbia maternity Photographer/Chloe at Rock Bridge Memorial Park

Chloe is an amazing lady. I met her on a business trip to Kansas City. She was running the hotel's front desk and we immediately hit it off. Friendship at first sight! We have stayed connected through Facebook and when she messaged me sharing the big news I was over the moon excited for her. We decided to meet half way at the gorgeous Rock Bridge Memorial Park in Columbia Missouri. The fall colors here were STUNNING! Chloe did amazing picking out her outfits too. 

During the session I realized I had not laughed that much in SO long. It really reminded me why I keep the friends I do. I absolutely can not wait to meet Mr. Carter in January. Chloe is going to be a rockstar Mama and I can't wait to meet Dad who unfortunately was on the road when we shot these. 

Thank you Chloe for trusting me to shoot these for you and I really can't wait to meet the new addition!
