I love this family. I'm pretty sure I say that every time I post one of their sessions, but that's just because it's true! I cannot even count how many times I have photographed them and after every shoot, I leave so darn happy, because they are just good, happy people. For this session, since Spring is finally here in the Midwest, we decided to head outside to a local park. It was actually a pretty perfect evening. Katie and William were rockstars. It seems like they're getting pretty used to being photographed! Dan and Nicole, you guys are rockstars too :) Enjoy!
Let me just say when the couple you are photographing says that they want to start off engagement pictures at iTAP in Soulard, you know it is going to be a good session :) These two were laid back, did all of the goofy things I asked them to without question and were just so much fun to be around. And besides being a great time to hang out with, they are extremely kind. In lieu of gifts for their wedding, they are asking for donations to Stray Rescue, where they got their sweet little Calliope (who joined us for the session!). How awesome is that?! I can't wait to photograph your wedding in July! Zach, I love the way you make Emily laugh. Emily, you have a fantastic laugh. Enjoy!
As many of you might know, I received the wonderful gift of a new nephew in January! And now it's May and I still haven't shared any images of him. I can guarantee you, it has not been for a lack of pictures. It is actually the opposite! I was there for his birth and I think the longest I've been away from him is a week since he was born. I am lucky they live so close :) Anyways, I decided to divide up his pictures into two different blog posts so it didn't get extremely long. Here is the first set. These were taken at the hospital when Jackson met Sawyer for the first time. Looking through these pictures, I realized they weren't necessarily about Sawyer, but more of a story of a big brother meeting his little brother. And Jackson's emotions are written all over his face in every image! That's the wonderful thing about kids, no guard up, they just put it all out there. Enjoy!
