Saint Charles, MO Milestone Photographer | Natalie is 6 Months | Holly Dawn Photography

I absolutely heart this family! I’ve had the opportunity to shoot their wedding, their newborn session and now their daughter Natalie’s six month session.  We had absolutely the yuckiest sky (super dark clouds and no sun) and horrendously wet grass from weeks of rain but Natalie’s little smile brightened up that day. She is seriously the happiest baby I have ever photographed. She never fussed, she smiled the whole time and would just look at the camera like a natural. She was born to be in front of a camera that’s for sure. I didn’t even have to jump around to get her attention to look. Like I said… a natural!

Please enjoy a few snippets from Natalie’s six month session! Stayed tuned for her one year pics.


Saint Charles, MO Engagement Photographer | Main Street Saint Charles | Autumn and Ryan

So excited to have Autumn and Ryan’s engagement session on the blog today. I just loved working with Autumn and Ryan. They are such a sweet and super fun couple. I love that we were able to grab some shots in front of the restaurant where they had their first date. I’m such a sentimentalist!

I can’t wait for their summer wedding! Until then, enjoy a few from their session.




Saint Charles, MO | High School Senior Photographer | Dylan

So excited to have Dylan, class of 2017 on my blog today. I first met Dylan last year when I did pictures with him and his family. They were such a fun family to photograph so it was an honor to shoot Dylan’s senior pictures.  The weather was pretty dark and dreary but that didn’t stop us!

I love shooting seniors! They are one of my favorite types of sessions to do.  I’m a sentimentalist and I love that they are just starting their journey. Yup sappy I know! Congratulations Dylan and good luck on all your future endeavors!

Enjoy a few pictures from Dylan on Main Street!

Saint Charles, MO Newborn Photographer | Baby Ruth | Holly Dawn Photography

I am so excited to have the gorgeous Ruth on my blog today. I’ve had the privilege working with her mommy several years back. She is an outstanding teacher and it was so wonderful seeing her again.  Ruth had the most amazing hair on any baby I’ve had the honor to photograph. It was so perfect as well as the rest of her. She was the sweetest baby! Thank you so much Laura and Dustin for letting me help capture this important time in your lives!


Saint Charles, MO Newborn Photographer | Baby Allison | Holly Dawn Photography

I am so excited to have the super sweet Baby Allison on my blog today. She is the best Valentine’s Day gift her parents could ever ask for! I took the winter off from photography and was itching to pick my camera up again. I’m so thankful Allison was my first after my little vacation. I definitely have the cutest and sweetest little clients! Enjoy a snippet from Allison’s Newborn Session.
