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

Growing family joys

This family received a new baby boy this summer and during our session we got to capture the tender new relationships between everyone. Big brother was so gentle and even eager to hold his new friend. And had fun goofing around with daddy between takes. He earned his ice cream for sure! Grandma was even present for our session and so we were sure to capture her with her precious grandsons. Best wishes to this family as they continue on this new adventure as a growing family!

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!

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!

Newborn baby girl is a perfect little model!

We had the great joy of meeting and photographing this little angel! She was such a good sport being passed around the family members and had many outfit changes. She’s a great little model in the making! With bows and rings and other special props, her first photo shoot was a success!

Reliving precious moments!

Last year we photographed this baby boy just a month after he was born. Here are some of our favorites from that session. This year we were invited to attend his 1st birthday party and took some updated portraits of him and his family. We’ll be posting those soon! For now, we’re reliving tiny tender moments with this beautiful baby boy as he had his first photo debut!

Expanding family love!

Through out life, one of the most cherished moments is when a couple of 2 becomes a family of 3! This holiday season we give thanks to all those cherished moments we’ve been able to capture. From tiny fingers to tiny toes, this beautiful baby brings endless joy to her expanding family!
