Newborn baby sailor boat blues

This lovable snuggle bug was surrounded by his big sister, mommy and daddy on this cold winter day last year! We had such joy photographing him for his first session. He already had stolen mommy and daddy hearts completely in just a short time since being born. Happy 1st birthday to this handsome little fellow! big sisterbaby facesbaby boy blues blue baby basket daddy and me just mommy and me newborn baby boy sailor baby boat snuggle baby

Sleeping newborn baby girl!

Happy New Year! Take a look at this sweet baby girl! Her newborn session last winter was filled with cute outfits, daddy’s special hats, and sleepy snuggles. What a precious doll! If you’re expecting this year, we’d love to capture your babies first session. We come to your home for comfort and ease to capture your little joy!

Learning to be a big sister

This little cutie showed us lots of snuggles for bother mommy and her new baby brother as well as her independent side as we explored Elizabeth Park this past summer. Baby brother was a real champ as well, going from napping to being awake and passed around for everyone to love on. These two kiddos will have a great time keeping mom and dad on their toes for the next 18 years as they all grow in family love!       snuggles with big sisterindependent sisterbeautiful eyeshappy familybaby boy sleepingkisses for babylove couplesleeping baby taking care of brother

1st birthday fun!

What would be better than getting to attend a 1st birthday for work?! Capturing this cutie was just too much fun. At first the many faces was a little much and a few tears were shed but soon she was rocking and rolling! With a lady bug theme and great joy with her smash cake, this little one’s first birthday was a party we’ll never forget!

First Christmas as a Family of Three!

With half of the Defy team moving north, I’ve been so grateful to spend as much time with them as possible lately, especially since their little one arrived. When he was just a few weeks old we took some family photos to use for their Christmas card when we took his newborn portraits. They are such a beautiful family and I know that only good awaits them in their future.

Jellybean

For this Thanksgiving, Defy is especially grateful for a little Jellybean. One of our photographers recently had her first baby. This little guy has brought so much joy to so many people and it’s time to share him with you!

Sweet baby Liam is on his way right now to visit all of his family in Colorado for the Thanksgiving holiday. We know they are beside themselves waiting to see his precious face.

Here’s the brand new family of three!

Defy owner upgrades to new title – Mommy!

We got these pictures done just in time! At 39 weeks our mommy-to-be walked around the apartment complex and we found some fun spots for some great pictures. We were able to include some props like adorable baby shoes, an adorable dragon, and a personalized “Jellybean” onesie. The dad was able to break away from work for a few minutes to join us for some pictures. He is quite the character! This little one is going to have some fun parents.

Sweet One and Sweet Music

We love babies! Maybe more so now because one of the owners of Defy is about to be a mommy… In any case, we jumped at the opportunity to photograph this sweet one in St. Louis. She was such a sweetheart and did a great job during our shoot. My favorite part was when she got fussy, her loving parents sang a hymn to help calm her down. It made for a sweet photo op. Congratulations to these new parents on their bundle of joy!
