Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Ashleigh & Terry 2012
May 27, 2013 12:15 AM Blog
Last summer, as I'm sure you all remember, we had next to no rain so by fall, the Mississippi River was very low. This gave opportunity to me to take Ashleigh and Terry down to areas that are now inaccessible by the water. It was actually the first time I'd gotten to go down by the old rail transfer site, there were even some treasure hunters out there at the same time - not sure if they found anything! We had a great time playing around the ferry area and even got some good photos with their sp ......
Ste. Genevieve Senior Photographer | Sarah, Class of 2013
May 26, 2013 12:04 PM Blog
Sarah is the last of my siblings and siblings-in-law to graduate and we had great fun doing her senior portraits. We've actually had two sessions, the newest will come later, but here's her last-summer-the-hair-is-long-here session! Three outfit changes and some top secret locations and I think we had a wonderful session. I loved her outgoing and exploring-the-decades outfits and hair! View the album on Facebook! ......
Park Hills Family Photographer | Ellis 2013
May 25, 2013 01:05 AM Blog
Now here's for something new! A couple of weeks ago, I had the privilege of photographing the Ellis family. Four generations! So, of course, we photographed every possible combination. The little girls were totally in hate with me but I managed to get a few cute shots of them! Extended families are great, though, you get to see all the love and smiling faces with aunts and nephews, grandmother and granddaughter, father and son, etc. I love to see an extended family that has stayed so close!

Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Jon, Sandy, and the Doggies
May 24, 2013 03:49 PM Blog
I'm proud to call these guys family. We'd been talking about some photos with Jon and Sandy and their fur babies for a bit when we got this awesome snow that wet enough it stuck to the trees making for some really pretty scenery, much better than the snows we usually get! So we grabbed the opportunity and headed out for a quick session in the cold. We also borrowed the Christmas gift we'd gotten our parents/parents-in-law, check out the name log. It was made by Ryan Meyer of The Wood Den. Check ......
Professional Head Shots and Family Photographer | Jason, Jennifer, Gracie
May 23, 2013 10:12 AM Blog
Earlier this year, I had the privilege of doing head shots for Jason for his business website. We also did some family and engagement-type photos at the same time.Of course, I think the star of the show was little Gracie, what a darling!I don't really like to do studio work so much, especially without big ornate backgrounds (hahaha) but I think these came out really nice. Of course, the white on white was challenging but we got 'er done!I also have to say that I'm honored that Jason and Jennifer ......
Arnold Family Photographer | Coleman 2013
May 22, 2013 04:13 PM Blog
I have always said that my friend Kate is my biggest fan. She's always been my pushing and encouraging force. And not only that, she's someone I can rely on to tell me the truth.With that said, I am very happy to have taken their family photos every year for the last four years. Even before that, I did two sessions with her daughter alone so I can say I've been the designated Coleman photographer since 2008.While Kate's not my only long-time repeat customer, she is the longest standing. I believ ......
Festus/Crystal City Children Photographer | Cubbies & Puggles 2013
May 21, 2013 08:32 PM Blog
Hey there, let's start this thing off with something really fun! A few months ago I had the opportunity to take pictures of the Cubbies and Puggles in the AWANA club at my church, First Baptist Festus/Crystal City. This was the second time and I truly love doing this. I chose to not pick on them or Photoshop them. Like my friend described it a few days ago, it was Real. All the crusty noses, the bruises and boo-boos. Just how they are. Of course, there were some uncooperative kids in the bunch w ......
