Alexander Family | Family Session

When Liz said she wanted to get new photos of her family, I was honored when she asked me to do it! I know Liz from work at the school district; she is amazing! She helps coordinate one of the school's Oasis program (among many other things) and she is always so kind and helpful and a wonder to spend time with. So when she came to me for pictures, I was so excited to work with her as a photographer and meet her family. We met her husband, Jay, and children Jillian and Lucas. And her family is just as wonderful as she is! They were so supportive and happy to do whatever we asked. Everyone was so laid back and such a pleasure to meet. It's always so wonderful when we get to take pictures of fa

Marley Delgado | Class of 2020

Meet Marley! I met Marley four years ago when we set up at our first Pattonville craft fair. Her mom, Shelly, came by and introduced themselves. Every December after that, we had our annual checking with Marley and Shelly at the craft fair. Last year, when Marley was a senior, we were finally able to start planning! They told us about this beautiful park nearby that Marley and her sister, Maya, played at. It was called Bridgeway Park (well, at the time everyone knew it as Appletree Park), and was just short drive from both of our houses. I couldn't wait to check it out and see what made it so special to them. When I got there, the park was in full construction mode. They were doing a tone of

Whitehead Family | Fall Minis

For the fourth year in a row we've had the pleasure of photographing Melissa and Spencer's growing family. This year was amazing! Their son Hudson is now in kindergarten (I can't believe it!) and Adalynd was running around and being as adorable as can be. I can't believe how quickly they are growing up. They even brought along a few additional family members to join in and help keep Hudson and Adalynd occupied as needed. We hadn't seen Melissa's dad and Spencer's mom since the first year we did pictures with the the Whitehead family, so it was great seeing them all again! After the session, we had some time to catch up with Melissa. It was a wonderful afternoon. Every year is an absolute ple

Kristina and Julian Sweazey | Wedding

Kristina and Julian had the most beautiful wedding in October! But what was the most wonderful piece was how in love they were. The way that they looked at each other throughout the day, and the moment they saw each other in the church as Kristina walked down the aisle, was filled with so much love and respect. Even their vows were full of wonderfully sweet, silly and inside-jokey moments that they, and their guests, laughed and awed at. Everyone from them to their wedding party to their family and friends were as welcoming, helpful and as kind as could be and so excited for Kristina and Julian's marriage. One of my favorite parts of every wedding day is after the pomp and circumstance is do
