Let Them Eat Cake | Styled Shoot

During our Halloween-themed styled shoot a few weekends ago, one of the people attending was telling us about this cake contest she was entering. Deva told us about her designed, and showed us some pictures of her ideas, and it sounded amazing. Even more amazing when she was telling us about the flavors of her cake ... a four-tier cake with everything from chocolate to vanilla and a layer of lavender and raspberry and one of blueberry and cinnamon. Our mouths were watering! I asked if the judges got to try each flavor and she said that they didn't even eat the cake, it was all about decorating! She was making this stunning and delicious cake, but no one was going to get to eat it. So we of c

Bland Family | Fall Session

I first talked to Patricia in 2015 when I was looking for a lawyer to look over our contracts. Patricia was terrific and incredibly helpful. That fall, she contacted us to photograph her family's reunion, and then we got to see them again that winter for her father's company's holiday party that we photographed. It was so wonderful to hear from Patricia recently inquiring about family pictures. I enjoyed getting to see her, Luke and their children Elliott and Cora again. We met them at Hellebusch Park in Bridgeton for their fall pictures and loved getting to reconnect with them, and talk more to their children. They are all so happy! And I just love how Patricia is looking at the kids. Ellio

Lewis Family | Fall Session

I was honored to photograph Tess, her husband Corey and their kids Kai and twins Kadyn and Kori. We were pumped going into this session! Tess kept telling me how excited she was to have family pictures done, and how bubbly and enthusiastic the girls were, and they didn't disappoint! Despite an unintentional nap on the way to the Muny, where our session was, the girls bounced back quick. And when it came time to taking pictures of them one-one-one, oh my gosh! I couldn't click the shutter fast enough to keep up with their poses! All three are true models at heart! Aren't they adorable?!? And I just LOVE their colors ... the maroon and blue is perfect for the fall, and really pops from the whi

Reiners Family | Portrait Session

This family is the sweetest! We photographed Amy and Terry's wedding almost exactly a year ago. Their wedding was on one of the hottest days in September, and their family session was just the same this year! But everyone was so great, and the kids were wonderful (they had promises of park time if they put up with me and they rose to the occasion!). It was an honor getting to photograph them again, and getting to know their kiddos better. Ethan was so great with his younger siblings, making sure they were happy and engaged, and he'd just gotten braces, so I don't know how he was so positive! Jason just turned six, and he was celebrating his birthday the next day. He was a little more reserve
