This is an image I edited of the frozen Mississippi River from the Illinois side looking over into Missouri.

Brayden {One Year}

Sometimes I get so caught up in shooting and editing and then doing creative shoots that I forget to showcase what I am working on!

I recently had the pleasure of photographing this Lil’ Guy….I shot his newborn images and here we are now a whole year later.  And we have some beautiful Fall colors for these images too! ♥

My how the time has just gone by. He has definitely mastered that walking…and running. He gives his Mama and Daddy a workout all day, every day.

(His Mama made the chalkboard from an idea she saw on Pinterest. 
Love me some Pinterest! ♥)

Summer Beauty

St. Louis is hot in the summer time. I know, I know…there are places that get hotter. Like the Sun. But still, when you have heat and humidity it makes for a terrible day. On this particular shoot day it was dreadfully hot…and humid. And yet, my beautiful client never complained. Even when she got swarmed by mosquitoes at the pond. Even when a dog ran up and grabbed the flowers out of her hand and started chewing on them.

I love it when people just roll with whatever happens and manage to still look this incredible. She is just lovely. And I adore her hair!
