Main Street St. Charles, MO | Wedding Photographer | Carey and Mike

Ok so another wedding day plagued by Mother Nature this year. It was really cold, so gloomy and of course misting during ALL of our pics. Again it did not put a damper on their wedding day. I have been blessed with such awesome couples!


Saint Charles, MO | Milestone Photography | Chandon is One

So you have gotten the opportunity to see little Chandon grow and change through pictures. I have had the honor of taking his newborn pics all the way up through his one year pics. I love milestone packages for that very reason.

Ok so Chandon always is the best dressed little man. His parents always rock his wardrobe and his one year session did not disappoint. He was very serious for his session when he sat still which was like a nano second. He is all boy and was on the move the entire time. His poor parents worked up a sweat trying to get him to sit still.  When he first saw his cake, he kept scooping the icing off and would place it behind him. Once he figured out you were supposed to eat that confectionary delight it was game over. He seriously ate most of the cake. Such a cutie pie!

Thank you Tonia and Jeff for allowing me the opportunity to celebrate Chandon’s milestones with you and going along on your wild ride of parenthood. Happy First Birthday Chandon!


Milestone | Saint Charles, MO Photographer | Logan One Year

It’s always hard when a milestone package comes to an end. You get so used to seeing them regularly. It’s so neat as a photographer to see them as a newborn all the way through their first birthday.  Logan is such a cutie pie and I’ve enjoyed watching him grow.  The theme for his birthday party was balloons so his mom brought the basket of balloons to his session. I think they turned out amazing! I am so not crafty that way! Happy first birthday Logan!


St. Charles, MO | Wedding Photographer | Rebecca & Christopher

I’m so excited to have Rebecca and Christopher’s summer wedding on the blog today. It was one of those rare summer days in St. Louis this summer that had a heat advisory issued. Wow was it hot! It was so hot we had to rush through pictures super duper fast. It was also so dark and cloudy too. Ugh Mother Nature! The heat didn’t damper anyone’s spirits though. Rebecca and Christopher were surrounded by many friends and family who could not wait to celebrate their big day with them. Rebecca and Christopher have been together many years and it was awesome to see them get married. Did I mention how gorgeous Rebecca looked? Her dress was stunning on her and it fit like a glove! You all know how much I love to capture detail shots and all the little things personal to the couple. Well Christopher was one huge Green Lantern fan. It was proudly displayed on the cake and even his wedding ring. I’ve never seen a wedding ring like it before!

Thank you so much Rebecca and Christopher for letting me capture your special day. I wish you a lifetime of happiness! Congratulations!
