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. 

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!

 

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?

 

St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Louis Family Photographer/Burgess Family Lafayette Park

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. 

 

 

St. Charles Senior Photographer/St. Louis Senior Photographer/Tyler Senior Session with the adorable Diego

Every so often I have clients ask if they can bring their fur babies for some pictures. I will ALWAYS say yes to that! Tyler brought his boxer Diego and it was magic. Tyler alone was pretty amazing and definitely born to be in front front of the camera. Plus I might start asking Tyler for wardrobe help because his outfit choices were ON.POINT for this session. This "Mom wardrobe" could totally use a make over!

Tyler is loving his senior year at McCluer North. He will use his A+ program for the first two year of college and then hopefully fulfill his dream of joining his friends at the University. Mom is looking forward to having him around close for a few years. Lafayette Park was the perfect setting for this session as the colors were just perfect for this fall day. 

St. Charles Photographer/St. Charles Family Photographer/St. Charles Senior Photographer/Jordan

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. 

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 Family Photographer/ St. Louis Photographer/St. Charles Photographer/Bluestein Family in Forsest Park

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.
