The best is yet to come.

I love the sort of sessions where things just flow, and my stomach hurts after from laughing so much. I cannot tell you what a blast I had hanging with these two. I also cannot tell you how much hair envy I am having here. Almost glad I don’t have to sit and stare at these photos for hours on end anymore. LOL! No, but really, this girl has the most beautiful hair! ;-)

They drove in from New York! Yep, that’s right, all the way from New York to have photos done out here in beautiful Missouri! I mean, I guess she is from here too, so that helps. Lol. But I still felt incredibly honored that they drove all the way out here, even if they were already going to make the trip.

I love that they are both educators, lovers of dogs and old school rap, and very genuine, good hearted people. Their love and affection towards each other is so sweet and filled me up with all the warm fuzzies.

The end of me working on this session is bittersweet. I loved the session and post processing so much, and feels like I am saying a goodbye to a dear friend. But I am also doing a happy dance now that I can share these images! Because, I am in love with them!!!!!

The other week, I got to spend a fun Sunday morning with this family and their new new baby girl! I've been photographing this family since their oldest was 6 months, and feel so honored that I get to visually document the different phases of their life. And by the way, the have the BEST DOG EVER! :-) 

Congratulations again Sarah and Peter!

Celebrating Motherhood Part 2 | St. Louis Photographer

I was beyond thrilled when this family contacted me for photos. I have been photographing their sweet little family for a few years now, and it is always such a fun time with them. We do a lot of running, playing and laughing. Carlos sure knows how to keep us all on our toes and charms us every bit of the way. I just love this little guy's bigger than life personality.  

Celebrating Motherhood Part 1 | St. Louis Lifestyle Photographer

For a few years now I have been wanting to do Mother's Day Minis, but never seemed to get the planning part down. This year, I did, and am SOOO GLAD I did! I absolutely LOVED all of my minis! For me personally, I feel like I am just not in that many photos with my kids. This is something that I hear often from other Moms too. I want my kids to remember how we played and snuggled together and the look of happiness and love in my eyes for them and their Dad. 

This first family was so amazing! The kids were sooooooo sweet and SOOO FUN! There was lots of fun and good energy during this whole session which made for a really awesome time together. I seriously could feel so much love between them all!
