Devon // St. Louis Senior Portrait Photography

Here's another creative beauty that wanted to do things a little bit different for her Senior Session & I'm so excited to share them with you!

She had a dear friend of mine (who also happens to be her cousin in law) come along to style the whole thing...which was awesome.  Side note:  In case you've never heard me talk about Kristi Pinkham - you've got to go check out her website!  We have worked together several times & it's always such a blast!  She has the most creative eye ever & always brings so much spunk & helpful direction to everything she works on.

So, back to Devon's session.  She had the fun idea to start at Vintage Vinyl & I'm so glad they allowed us to come in & shoot for a little bit - we were able to get so many laid back & unique shots there of her in an environment she really loves.  I love the challenge of trying something new when it comes together like this!  After playing around there for a little while we headed to Forest park to finish up with a little bit of nature & gorgeous light on a perfect fall evening.

I hope you enjoy perusing her fun & beautiful images!

Henry's 6 Month Photos // St. Louis Child & Family Photography

Hey y'all!  Happy Tuesday!  I hope everyone is doing good & was able to catch a glimpse of that amazing eclipse yesterday (in person or on tv) - It was pretty spectacular!!  I'm already looking forward to it swinging around again in 7 years - I think we'll need to take a little camping trip somewhere along the path.  :)

Okay...
Are y'all ready for this?  
I don't think you are.  haha
The time has come to share more from this adorable 6 month session I shot a few weeks ago.  Sweet little Henry is one of the most smiley babes ever!  I guarantee his bright eyes & this perfect family farm setting will bring a big ol smile to your face too!  I don't really have much else to say - except that one of my favorite images ever is at the very end of this post, so just keep scrolling.  
ENJOY!

Breelyn // St. Louis Senior Portrait Photography

I have a few Senior Portrait Sessions I've been wanting to share for way too long & since I reference some of these awesome locations to clients looking for unique locations I thought it was about time I blogged them for easy access.  ;)
This beauty is Breelyn - she wanted her session to be edgy & different - I think she was able to accomplish that perfectly!  I hope you enjoy scrolling through some of my favorites from her session!

Briar Funke's First Year! // St. Charles Family Photography

I have  been wanting to share all of this sweetness with you for quite some time now!

I have had the amazing opportunity to capture so many beautiful families as they grow (some even before mom & dad say "I DO") - it truly is such an honor & such a joy!  So, I wanted to put a little post together from one of my First Year Packages to give everyone an idea of how important & awesome it is to document all of the beautiful growth that takes place in such a short amount of time!  (I'll try to post a couple more families soon too!)

I believe it really is so important to have precious images like these to cherish many many years from now - right?!  & not just for you, but for your kiddo's too!  Don't we all love looking back at photos of us & our parents from years ago?  It's always good to have something to look back on & remember the joy &  beauty in these fleeting moments!  

If you're interested in having this sweet season of your life captured please check out some of the details on my CONTACT page & send me a message - I'll get back to you with lots of details, answer all of your questions, & we can make some plans to freeze a few of life's blissful moments for you!

Chuck + Colleen // Kemoll's Top of the Met, St. Louis Wedding Photography

I have had this GORGEOUS wedding in the que to blog for quite some time now, but I've been so busy keeping up with all of my current amazing clients that I haven't been able to sit down & put words to these lovely images.  Now is the time!  Also, I still can't believe that Christmas is next weekend (anyone else want to do their fall over in slow motion with me?), so blogging a fall wedding still makes sense to me.  haha

Colleen & Chuck are two of the sweetest people ever!  They are both full of life & love & working with them was such a joy!  The weather for their fall wedding was absolutely perfect - the kind of day that if I wasn't shooting a wedding I would say, "this is a perfect day for a wedding!" haha.  Every detail was gorgeous & special.  They were surrounded (quite literally - their wedding party was HUGE) by so many people that love & support them.  & I'm just so excited to finally share their day with you!  Enjoy!

Anthony + Madeline // Silver Oaks Chateau St. Louis Wedding Photography

I am SO excited to finally be sharing this gorgeous wedding!  This adorable couple, this amazing venue, the perfect November weather, & every little detail that made this wedding an absolute joy to capture!  Remember their sweet rainy day Engagement Session?

Silver Oaks Chateau is one of those rare & amazing venues that has been thought out so well - there is so much attention to detail that literally everywhere you look is lovely.  I mean, just look at that ceiling through the window in the first image!  I can't wait to capture lots more weddings here in the future!

Madee & Tony have been such a joy to work with!  They are one of those couples that just falls into each other & you can really tell how much love they share by how they look at each other.  I was fighting back tears this whole day because it was just so sweet!  I hope you enjoy scrolling through all of the beautiful images from their perfect fall wedding (I must warn you, it's a doozy...I had a hard time narrowing down what images to show because they were all so wonderful!).

Every couple in the wedding party came in to their own song & did a little dance - it was so fun & unique!  Tony & his groomsmen even serenaded Madee to "You've Lost that Lovin Feeling" after they entered.  The DJ also had cards on each table with the title to a famous song, show, or movie & when you heard that song played it was your turn to hit the buffet...my table was Friends.  haha  It was such a fun way to dismiss the tables.
