I am so excited to share these as it was a long time planning process before St. Louis finally gave us a beautiful night to go out and do our session!! It really was a perfect evening, not too hot or humid which is rare for St. Louis in the summer. Anyways, Jess and Jeremy (and little Eddie the dog) were such a pleasure to photograph! I truly love that I get invited to capture some of the happiest times in people's lives. It was so sweet hearing them talk about their baby girl and how anxious they are for her arrival. I'm excited for this precious little one's arrival too! Be on the lookout for Miss Emma's newborn session in the next month or so. For now, enjoy the images of this lovely couple awaiting their first baby.
Well, adult families are not something I typically photograph but I've known this family ever since I was in elementary school. So, when Leslie came to me and asked if I'd photograph her family, of course I said yes! It was so great seeing them and catching up on everyone and catching them up on my family as well. I've got to say though, I was a little nervous going into this shoot, only because I do typically shoot little ones and was thinking none of my tricks to create smiles are going to work (peekaboo, singing songs, making weird noises, having the parents hold the kid upside down)! But throughout the shoot I realized, a family bond is a family bond. No matter what age the child is, she is still her Momma's baby. A little brother may not physically be the smallest anymore, but in the dynamics of the sibling relationship, he will always be the little brother. And the bond between sisters is always present, and possibly even more beautiful the older we get. So thank you Tilzer family for all of the laughs, a couple of tears and trusting me to capture your family. Here are a few from their session. Enjoy!
Here is another great family that was sent my way by my dear friend Talia Kite of Blissful Impressions. Thanks for sending me all of these amazing clients! Anyways, this family is so sweet, especially their little girl. We had to take a few breaks for "huggies" which was just about the cutest thing ever. Every once in awhile she just needed a hug and then she was back to being perfect for the camera. I mean seriously, she is probably one of the most cooperative two-year-olds I've ever taken pictures of. She said "ya" to everything. Enjoy this sweet girl and her family!
