B is 3! | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

My sweet nephew B is 3! Don’t let this little cutie fool you; he’s one of my toughest clients. But somehow, I always manage to coax a smile or two out of him. (It could be the cookies I bribe him with!) Happy Birthday Buddy!

When Life Gives You Lemons… | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

 

…Stick them in your kids’ mouths and take pictures! Or oranges, and limes and bananas. Yes, this is what happens when you are a photographer and you have blank walls in your kitchen. :)

Sweet baby L is sitting and crawling and smiling up a storm. She was so sweet and didn’t mind a bit that my two littles were along for the shoot. She must be used to it as the youngest of four! Thanks for keeping us on our toes!

E is One! | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

I seem to have a lot of babies named E right now, and they are all just so cute and sweet! And they all hit their milestones during the winter months so we’ve had a lot of indoor, studio  sessions! But that’s okay; at least we kept warm during this eternal winter!

Happy Birthday E!

E is 9 Months Old! | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

Well, the title of this post is a bit misleading because, as I post this, I’m also currently editing E’s ONE year session! Still, I couldn’t resist posting this cutie from just three months ago. Oh how time flies! Please stop growing up!!

Sweet Baby S Sneak Peek | St. Louis Newborn Photographer

This little sweetheart turned two little boys into overprotective big brothers and added a whole lot of pink to their otherwise all blue house! She was such a little sweetie and was a joy to photograph. I promised mom a sneak peek, but she’ll have to wait for the rest. :) I know they are enjoying their newest addition!

H is 2! | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

Sometimes you blink and two years goes by. That’s how I’m feeling as I edit these photos. I took photos of big sister in her bedroom in a previous house when she was young than Mr. H is now and here we are, capturing little brother in his new room in a new house. He is so happy, and I can’t believe he is two years old already! He loved being a cowboy, but he also loved showing me his room. I was trying to take his picture and he decided it was more fun to climb into my lap for a book. I’ll take it; it’s always fun to have a buddy. :) Happy birthday H!

It’s been so cold that I just had to pull this wonderful session from this past summer.  I am SO ready for green grass and blue skies!!!

Anyway, remember when I mentioned that maybe my little lady has already met her best lifelong friend? Well, who knows what the future holds, but little Miss A from these portraits is already one of her favorite buddies. And we couldn’t love her or her family more! I was so excited to spend the evening with these friends. Aren’t I lucky that I don’t consider this work?! I consider it spending time with friends! I am so blessed!

I don’t usually put together such a big storyboard, but I couldn’t choose which images to show! Enjoy!

Baby E | St. Louis Children’s Photographer

Time is moving too fast again this year! Sweet baby E is 9 months old already and I cannot believe it. And this time, she gave me the best gift and smiled through our entire session! The last few photos we’ve taken, she’s made me work a bit for smiles, but not this time!! She smiled when she got out of the car; she smiled as we walked in; she smiled when we set her down; she smiled when I picked up my camera; she smiled when we said good-bye. I must be winning her over! And she’s the  most beautiful little thing, and I am not at all biased because we are related. Not.at.all. :)

When a friend called me wanting to gift this family a photo session, I felt honored and blessed that she chose me to capture such a sweet family. We booked a session quickly due to health issues and enjoyed a beautiful morning at the Jewel Box in St. Louis. Just look at the love this family shares! Keeping them in my thoughts and prayers for the upcoming year!
