Politte|Family

Iris-Collage-1

Fall is seriously becoming my favorite season!  I just absolutely love the colors and the fun a little child can have by just playing with the fallen leaves on the ground.  As you can see, this gorgeous family of three will be adding a fourth member to their clan possibly December or January.  The mommy-to-be in this photos is a very talented hair stylist, who happens to be the woman behind my hair.  I’ve been photographing her family for the past year and I am so excited I got the chance to hang out with them recently.  By the looks of the big smiles on their faces, I think everyone is excited and ready for Baby Jack to arrive.  Thanks Politte Family for trusting me once again with your family photos!  I can’t wait to meet Mr. Jack!

Lawton|Family

L1Check out this adorable and photogenic family!  It’s always fun shooting a family session especially when the family is your neighbors and babysitters.  It was a true laid back session and they were up for anything which made them super easy to photograph.  The Lawton’s live just  a few houses down the street from us and their beautiful teen twins babysits my little toddler whenever I’m away photographing sessions.  Of course, we scheduled their session on a weekend so the girls could be free of baby-sitting duties! Thank you for hanging out Lawtons!

Summer | 2015 | LaFayette High School

s1

I had the pleasure of photographing this bubbly and very fun senior from La Fayette High School.  Summer is one of the most laid back senior I’ve photographed.  We laughed and giggled almost the entire time during her session.  Her mom came along to her session and she was just as sweet and bubbly like her daughter.  Talk about a really cool and fun clients, yep that’s you Laura and Summer!

This easy going girl’s schedule involves Student Council, National Honor Society, and Mu Alpha Theta, and cross country. Her goal is to be accepted into medical school at the University of Kentucky.  Good luck Miss Summer!  Stay sweet and beautiful!

Kelly & Ryan | Married

KR1_9212

Ryan and Kelly are married!  What a beautiful wedding from ceremony to the reception.  I met Kelly through one of my photog pals Katie from Katharine Roberds Photography.  Katie was invited as a guest to their wedding so she happily referred Ryan and Kelly to me.  Of course, my side kick (a.k.a. Katie), still assisted me a for a bit during the day and some of the beautiful photos you’ll see below were shot by this talented lady.

My day with them began at the Moonrise Hotel where they both got ready.  Kelly’s dad delivered some tasty custard from Ted Drewes so the girls got the chance to kick back and enjoy some dessert before photos.   Their first-look took place up on the roof top of the Moonrise Hotel (we seriously captured some gorgeous photos of them with the view of the loop) followed by photos at Tower Grove Park.  Both ceremony and reception were held at Oliva on the Hill.  Their “writer’s themed” wedding was created by Allissa from Style: Altar’d, flowers by Tina from The Special Event Florist – Tina Barrera, and event planning by the sweet ladies at Absolutely in Event Planning.

I had an amazing time working with this lovely couple and their families.  Ryan and Kelly are such a sweet and classy couple.  I wish them many blessings and lots of love!

Sweet and stunning is what I would describe this 2015 senior girl.  Miss Haylie is a student and a cheerleader at Timberland High School in Wenztville.  During her free time she enjoys hanging out and shopping with friends.  After high school she hopes to attend either Lindenwood University or Missouri University where she would like to major in Nutrition.  Haylie also says that she possibly sees a career in dental hygiene in her future.  Good luck and thank you for a great photo session Haylie!

Paige|2015|Saint Joseph High School

I first met Paige a couple of years ago for a short “interview” for a baby-sitting job.   I needed someone to watch my little one for an hour while I head out to shoot sessions.  I remembered that day when this sweet young girl walked up to my driveway to meet us.  Paige seemed very quiet and shy but I knew she would do a great job watching my baby.

Today, I can’t believe she is a senior in high school!  She is a competitive and elite dancer at Arches Dance Company.  This sweet and confident young lady plans to attend Missouri University after graduation.

Thank you for choosing me to photograph you for your senior photos Paige!
