Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Midkiff 2014
January 3, 2015 10:40 PM Blog
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 ......
Farmington Engagement/Wedding Photographer | Matt & Tracy's Engagement
November 15, 2014 10:48 AM Blog
I have already had the privilege of shooting Matt and Tracy's wedding in September, but we never did get around to sharing many of their engagement photos until now. We had a great time in July on what was thankfully a good day with decent weather and temperatures! We met on Matt's family farm and were able to utilize not only his grandparent's house but several areas of the farm including a beautifully golden, recently harvested field. The colors were just amazing. Here ......
Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Delani (modeling)
September 8, 2014 12:51 PM Blog
I want to take a bit of a break from moving over my older blog entries to post Delani's session. I just finally finished posting the rest on Facebook. This was such fun! As you already know, my field of sunflowers this year grew with gusto (as opposed to last year!) and I did several family sessions around and in the flowers. They were getting close to dying though and I really wanted to do something one-on-one with someone before they were gone. Delani's mom had me ......
Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Kimberly & Ellie Mae, One Year Later
August 19, 2014 9:00 PM Blog
One year ago to the day, on July 4, 2013, I had the privilege of photographing Kimberly and her doggie Ellie Mae while Kimberly was currently going through chemo for breast cancer. One year later, we met again to celebrate the journey that she had completed. Here are some of our favorite shots. The blue and the red outfits both looked amazing in the setting we chose.View the album on Facebook! ......
Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Messer 2014

This bunch was the fourth group to take advantage of my bright and fun sunflowers. The girls were so not into it, but I got some smiles anyway. Little Man just grinned the whole time, so adorable.Here's a good selection of what we captured, I love the blues and the pink accent with the sunflowers' yellow and green.View on Facebook!
Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Steffen 2014
August 16, 2014 11:48 AM Blog
When a client orders a copy of every photo from their session... it's extra hard to choose what to post here!! ;-)The Steffen family came out on a VERY hot and steamy Saturday for a mini session in the sunflowers with their adorable little 2 month old baby girl. She was such a little trooper! ;-)View on Facebook!
Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Robbins 2014
August 7, 2014 11:46 AM Blog
Erin has been my friend since the 7th grade and Jim married in about 6 years ago. I'm so happy to get to do photos of them every year. I was even privileged enough to be there for the birth of their second child who is now, I can't believe it, almost 2 years old.They were one of the families to come out for the mini sunflower sessions and how cute is this? Unfortunately, we had one majorly disagreeable little guy. But he did manage a few smiles and we got a couple of candids and funny outtakes!V ......
Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Whitehead 2014
August 6, 2014 11:31 AM Blog
So how about this, for one adorable family???We got out right at two weeks ago, my first sunflower 2014 subjects! Oh, yes, my in-laws let me grow a great little field of sunflowers. They were so much fun and I did several mini sessions here, but also the Whitehead family, who were the first, for their full session.It was so hot and humid, it was pretty miserable. But what else can you expect from Missouri? In July? Really, this summer could be a lot worse! Largely, it's been pretty good to me.Mo ......
Ste. Genevieve Children's Photographer | Bella, 1 Year Old
June 24, 2014 9:50 AM Blog
Here is sweet little Bella! Her mom was totally prepared for this session and everything came out so adorable. I loved it all! The outfits and the props, all of it. She even had grandma's pearl necklace for little Bella to wear and the canopy was just, well, totally awesome. Bella wasn't quite sure what to do with that cake, she was so dainty!View on Facebook! ......
Vintage Themed Photographer | Jaime, 1920's
November 25, 2013 8:43 AM Blog
This was about a month ago and was totally fun. So, what's going on here? The furniture piece that Jaime is lounging on is a gossip bench or telephone seat. My grandfather had this one in his farm house and it has been passed on to me after he passed away this summer. It's not an antique but I can't find one just like it, one that it's supposed to be modeled after. We were guessing early 1900's style. The telephone came from a local pawn shop. I'd been eyeing it since the spring, even before I g ......
Ste. Genevieve Family Photographer | Kate, Deb, & the girls
November 14, 2013 8:38 AM Blog
Well this was just really cool. :)My long time friend Kate had her friend Deb in from Ireland and we got together on this chilly it-happens-now-or-never day for a Best Friend/Sister photo shoot with the two of them and the girls. We had a great time and some of the best was when they sat the girls down to tell them that they were not only going on a Disney cruise in just a few days but they were leaving right after the shoot to head to Florida for a day of Disney World as well.As I understand it ......
Ste. Genevieve Engagement Photographer | Marie & Codie
August 28, 2013 8:56 AM Blog
The same day as the gender reveal, we also did some engagement photos. :) These are a few of my favorites. We also had some fun with confetti, as you'll see at the end. Looking forward to the wedding of this very special couple! :) View the album on Facebook!
Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Breast Cancer/Chemo - Kimberly & Ellie Mae
July 15, 2013 9:50 PM Blog
Kimberly is one of the sweetest and most loving people I've ever met. She is undergoing chemo and getting closer to being finished, then it's radiation, for breast cancer. She was only diagnosed in March and even though she's going through all of this, she still smiles.It was sort of funny how this all worked out - we had the same idea on the same day and started talking. There was lots of, that's what I was thinking! going on. We were going to celebrate where she's been and where she's going ......
Hillsboro Maternity Photographer | Mallory, A Story of New Life, Part I - Maternity
June 27, 2013 9:53 PM Blog
This here is my little sister, pregnant with her second girl last fall. We had a quick session on an unseasonably warm day in October. We had a good time playing around in the leaves. Here are some of my favorite pictures. I know I'm especially in love with the pictures of my niece, even her how dare you take a picture of me look! View the album on Facebook! ......
St. Louis Family Photographer | Aven, A Story of New Life, Part I - Maternity
June 23, 2013 9:08 PM Blog
This will be the first installment of Aven's birth story, his Mom's maternity pictures!This was the second time I got to do maternity pictures with my long time friend Erin and Jim. This time we were able to, of course, incorporate their oldest child, who you might remember from his two years photos. We had a great session, mostly playing around in the weeds and leaves.View the album on Facebook! ......
Ste. Genevieve Photographer | Kayleigh, a butterfly in a tu-tu
June 18, 2013 10:02 PM Blog
This had to be literally the shortest session ever. Why? It's my own kid and I have to say I was completely floored that she even agreed to do this, let alone actually did it. For her birthday in April, her aunt and grandparents got her a set of adorable butterfly wings with wand. Of course, I didn't know this until after I'd scored a tutu by Hannahs Tutus, made by a friend from church, in a silent auction. The purple boots are play boots at Grandma's that Kayleigh already loves and the black le ......
Ste. Genevieve Senior Photographer | Cody, Class of 2012
June 15, 2013 9:42 PM Blog
Last year I had the opportunity to do senior photos with Cody out in the county. We got to incorporate not only his prized restored tractor, but his Letterman's jacket, football jerseys, and hunting rifle. This was only days after I lost a camera and a lens to the creek waters when I feel in during a session - always carry a backup, my friends! ;-)Here are my most favorite shots. View the album on Facebook! ......
Ste. Genevieve Wedding Photographer | Bart & Amber
June 2, 2013 6:48 PM Blog
Bart and Amber tied the knot on an absolutely gorgeous day in April of this year. It was a country wedding - out on the family farm, outside, even hay bales for guests to sit on during the ceremony all complete with a hay ride up the hill to the ceremony site and back down to the reception site. Very beautiful. I adored all of the decorations, the dresses, the bride's hair, and the cupcakes were to die for. A perfect day and I was honored to be able to capture it for the happy couple. I even had ......
Senior Photographer | Ariel, Class of 2013 Graduation
June 1, 2013 6:32 PM Blog
Congratulations to Ariel on her high school graduation! This is a sweet darling and affectionate girl, no, woman, that I am proud to call my cousin. Ariel, we are all so proud of you! No, she's not a Hillsboro graduate but her school had their ceremony at Jeffco so we did the photos nearby. I love her gown color, gold without being... gold... you know? And not black or white, something nice. And her dress in soft pink is just adorable. View all her senior year photos on Facebook! ......
Ste. Genevieve Senior Photographer | Ariel, Class of 2013
May 29, 2013 10:03 PM Blog
Here's another of my favorite 2013 seniors! ;-)Last August, Ariel was up for some fun on the farm and fun just plain out in the county. She's not from down here but was willing to make the trek from the Imperial area. We had a good time and laughed a lot, really relaxing with it just being the two of us. This girl's a natural, too, genuine super model, I loved taking her senior pictures!View her Facebook album! ......
