Family session turned announcement!

I scheduled this family’s photo session thinking we were just getting the annual shot for the holiday card. Boy, was I wrong! Out of the car hopped the brothers with t-shirts with writing on them. Before the parents even got to me, I’d read the news! So excited for this growing family and what fun to capture their announcement photo.

Girl power continued!

This beautiful little peanut comes from a long line of some of the most caring, supportive and loving women we know so we made sure to include all that love in her photo session. While Great Grandma is no longer with us, she was very present through her ring on Nana’s hand. We loved capturing the new love in this growing family.

Hello, Defy world!

We’ve missed you but life got in the way these past few years, including some trash!
And then we rode the roller coaster of life backwards this past year!
But we are back on track and ready to ride!

Check back often this new year because we look forward to sharing all the joy we’ve been capturing between life’s crazy moments these past few years. And we are so excited to continue sharing our work with old and new clients a like. We are now located in St. Louis, Missouri, and would love to capture the city with you as our wonderful models!

Capturing year after year

This spring we photographed 2 young sisters for their annual birthday photos. Often after we hit the 1 year milestone, the photos dwindle away and we get busy with life and keeping up with our active little people. I know personally for our family we try to get at least one annual family photo to acknowledge growth and change. Working with these two sisters for their annual photos was very special to see how their personalities are developing and growing with time. One soft, gentle spirit and the other very adventurous and active! Happy birthdays to these sweet little ones!

  

My little models

As a photographer, we often photograph everyone but our own little ones as we use our down time with family as a break from our work. But we should still be mindful to capture the light and love in our own families! I took the opportunity this past spring to capture some goofy, sweet, and serious faces of my two little models. I love them so much! Even when they decided they didn’t want to take a photo together.

    

A book themed birthday party!

Possibly one of the cutest themes we’ve seen, we were invited to capture a special little girls book themed 1st birthday party! From the fabulous little caterpillar cake to the guest book being a children’s book, just about every character you would think of was included. And this darling little model was such an angel with her guests. From parents, to daycare teachers to mommy’s friends, she posed and smiled for us all afternoon. We would love to capture this wonderful milestone with you and your little tyke!
