This newborn session is embarrassingly late…. like by a year! I was going through some old galleries on Lightroom and realized that I never did a blog post for Margaret’s newborn session (sorry Anne & Nicholas). We sold and bought a new house right after I did their session which is the only reason I […]

Sweet baby Margaret | St. Louis Lifestyle In Home Newborn Photography

One of my best friends from college, Molly, and fellow photographer ( came in town from Green Bay to photograph a wedding. Her second shooter couldn’t make it last minute so I got the opportunity to photograph the wedding with her. We had an absolute blast. We talk photography all the time, but have never […]

The Paglisotti Wedding | Second Shooting

It’s families like the McEvoys that make me absolutely love my job. They are just the kindest family. They are the kind of people you feel at home with right when you walk in their door.The last time we did a session was a few months before the pandemic so it was a wonderful little […]

This park. This weather. This family. Y’all, I couldn’t have asked for a smoother extended family session. The Huch Family made my job a breeze. And baby Cora. Oh my GOODNESS! She stole the show that night. She was an absolute sweetie pie and I couldn’t stop snapping pictures of her cute smile.I will definitely […]

The Huch Family | Extended Family Session

Maternity sessions are always filled with such joyful anticipation. This season in the in-between before baby arrives is such a special time to capture. We had a blast at Forest Park walking around and enjoying a beautiful summer evening while chatting about all things baby. So excited for this family of 3 to grow into […]

We were chatting about her new online shop and told her […]

We had a lovely evening in the front yard of their home. Grandma Katie had the most beautiful garden filled with a variety of amazing plants and flowers. What a fun […]

The Rezykrantz Family | Extended Family Session

It’s always a joy to capture a wedding, but its 439x better when it’s one of your best friends on the other side of the lens. I told Ally at the end of the night, that my cheeks hurt most of the day from smiling so much. We all had so much fun – from […]

Ally + Chadd Get Hitched!

I’ve been loving extended family sessions lately. There is something so joyful about seeing entire families together after a long year of not being able to. I was able to capture these pictures for Josh’s aunt, uncle, cousins and their families on Sunday. We had the most beautiful spring evening at the gorgeous Wapelhorst Park. […]

The Day Family | Extended Family Session

First of all, how sweet is her name?! I’m a bit obsessed. I captured the Whittaker family and their newest addition, Birdie. She was just as sweet as her name. We woke her up while changing her into her swaddles, but as soon as she was fed, she fell right back asleep for the entire […]
