Kaitlyn and I had a great time shooting her maternity session back at the end of August. We even had a chance to do a crossover session and get her in the outdoor clawfoot tub for a milk bath session! These sessions are typically boudoir and have their home at my other site: Blush Boudoir. However, Kaitlyn shows us one can have an equally beautiful session here while fully clothed. I was so excited to be able to photograph a maternity session in the milk bath. ......

There might be some familiar faces in this post! But there's one relatively new one, too! Meet my dear friends complete with all three of their children. The last time we saw this clan, the littlest addition was just new born. So here we are again about a year later.This past spring I finally got these guys down to my own private spot for some in the woods family photos. Last summer when I posted pictures of my own kids using this chair, Erin said she wanted to ......

As promised, we continue today featuring a certain sweet little one year old... who wasn't even born yet in these pictures! My dear friends came down to Ste. Genevieve for their maternity and family session. We had a good time walking around and capturing some great shots.

I am so honored to get to have photographed this sweet session for Ryan & Kaitlyn! They were married in November and while I haven't even finished posting the wedding photos yet (heehee), we are going to go ahead! Last Saturday, this beautiful couple came out to our land for a pregnancy reveal session on a day that was just too beautiful to be a typical February day in Missouri! Of course, Paisley, the pup, stole a lot of the show, but we were able to get some couple pictur ......

I am attempting to get back to blogging sessions beginning with the Ramsey family!I have known this gorgeous family for a long time, almost as long as I remember! And it was an honor to get to do some family photos with them just before Christmas. Of course, we had such a strange fall and beginning of winter this season that we had some perfect weather and coloring for a session. I typically don't care much for cedars when it comes to scenery but I love the green with the yello ......

These two friends got together for Mother's day and split a session. Each one wanted some pics for Mom but we also took some together. Of course, the furry friends were involved, too!It was a cute and adorable session, I really enjoyed it. :)At Sunset Park in Festus.

You might remember Kate's friend Deb from the year prior when she visited and we did a photo session. Last fall she was able to make it again and we met for a few quick photos. This is one of my favorite spots for small groups, love this texture!

Last fall I got together with this fun loving clan for some unique family photos. Even though we were unable to trek to one of the locations they'd hoped for, we had a great time playing around near the house. It was also special to be able to include Grandma in some shots (and she certainly is a personality)!

Last season I had the privilege of photographing our music minister's family. They certainly are a handsome bunch, and those boys certainly are something else. And, of course, these little ones are already so much bigger and even more good news, Mama has another one on the way! Looking forward to seeing this family grow.

Here is a lovely spring time family session with a truly wonderful family. We decided to head off to Kimmswick for some great texture and it was a gorgeous day. And, I gotta say, the little girl here was not even quite 2 years old at the time but was one of the easiest children to photograph ever! So willing to sit still and pose. ;-)

I had the opportunity to photograph this sweet family last Fall and of course, we had a great time. I loved all of the purple and white and I think it all came out great. Everyone was so sweet and I enjoyed getting to know them. We walked around Ste. Genevieve a little bit making use of brick walls, a wooden fence at a historic site, and a private location that I have permission to use. I really loved the look of the wood and the white walls especially with the outfits. I love all these sweet sm ......

Back what feels like a million years ago, I got to do a real quick gender reveal for this mom. What was really cool about it was that she also didn't know the genders of the TWINS until her shower when they revealed. So we took the photo in a way that she didn't see it before it was time. So fast forward to more recently and these little beauties are here! Like most twins, they arrived early and spent some time in the hospital before getting to go home but once they did, we were able to set up s ......

So I figured I'd better go ahead and get these posted before it's Easter again! All the kids were dressed up so why shouldn't we have a little mini photo session?? Of course... not a one of them was really very cooperative... as usual! The group shot of the kids, I am not kidding, had to come from 3 separate photos and required me calling in my Photoshop experts... and even then, it's far from perfect. But, hey, that's who they are and we love them for it. I may Photoshop some faces together fro ......

Last May/June we had another opportunity to go visit my husband's family in Mississippi. Living in several different states, it's not all that often that these siblings can all get together and even though the event was marred by a tragedy, they were able to pony up some smiles for me with one another and their mom. We also took a group shot of all those who were able to make it. I imagine the actual family is probably more than twice this, though! Photos like these are very special to have and ......

I don't really photograph newborns, but sometimes as special favors to friends and family. I have known this family for a long time and even photographed the wedding of these two new parents back in 2010. So of course I would give it a try photographing this new sweetie! I'm also throwing in some maternity pictures I took of mom after covering a baby shower.

This was totally cool because my friends from Tulsa were able to come see me! We had a great time out in our woods, yes, that same spot I mentioned yesterday! The leaves at the time, mid-October had fallen quite a bit but still maintained color, there was so much yellow everywhere, I love it! Here are some of my favorite shots and seeing these guys again cannot come soon enough!!

Yes, you read that right. 2013. If you didn't believe that I'm horrible with getting photos to the blog, you should now! Thankfully, while I may not blog as much as I should, I can say that all of my clients do receive the utmost of attention and photos are delivered in a very timely manner. Usually, not counting holiday times, sessions are edited and ready for private viewing within a week and a half. Longer of course, if we're dealing with Christmas and New Years ......

I know, I know, I'm not supposed to apologize for not blogging but wow, I am really horrible at it!! Usually I'm just running so crazy with shooting and editing that I just plain don't spend the computer time to do it. But right now is off-season (seriously, who wants to get out in this weather for a session, no one!) so what's my excuse?? My husband and I are building a new home! And it's exciting not just for my family but for my photography as well. A great place ......
