H Family Portraits

Last weekend I met the H Family at Hermann Park for a morning family session. I knew that they have five children and that grandma and grandpa would also be joining us. Now, of course, the number of people was not a problem… but it did make me think that we would only end up with a few usable photos. More people means more variability, especially with so many children in the mix. But this family just defied all my expectations. Our shoot was fun and easy and left us with A LOT of sweet photos. Really a delightful morning. Thanks H Family!


J Family Portraits

I just love meeting friends’ families. And what better excuse to hang out than a lil photo shoot? I was honored to get to take pics of one of my dear friends’ families around their lovely home. Even the dog cooperated – check out that canine eye contact! Thanks for welcoming me into your home, J Family!

T Family Christmas Pictures

Mrs. T is one of my oldest friends. Check that, she is my oldest friend – approaching 3 decades ya’ll. So it is a delight for me to periodically photograph their family, especially their precious (quickly growing!) little guy. He was cracking me up during this shoot, giving me the sweetest combination of obedient smiles and mischievous grins. Check it out!

The S Family’s sweet Santa Baby!

What better Christmas gift is there than a new baby? The S Family welcomed their son just a few short days before Christmas (you can take a look at their maternity session here) and he was clearly ready to meet the world. Normally, newborn sessions revolve around the baby’s nap time, which is when you are able to capture those sleepy snuggly poses. Baby S, however, was not interested in sleeping and instead chose to show off his personality and his handsome alert eyes. And I have to say, I could not be happier with the result. This is one precious little Christmas gift. Thanks for giving me some time with him, S Family!

Welcome Baby William!

Attention attention, Baby William has arrived! If this little bundle of Christmas joy looks cute in photos, you should see him in person. His tiny face is already the sweetest blend of Mom and Dad. Thanks so much, E Family, for allowing me into your home during this joyful time!

Three Generations of the G Family!

Family is a big deal. This is always the case but it becomes especially apparent around the holidays. So it was truly a pleasure and a privilege to get to photograph the entire G Family – three sisters, their parents, husbands, and children. 18 people in all, including the baby who just turned 1. And what a cooperative group! These kiddos were more than willing to pose, smile, and be bossed around by the photographer for an hour. Thanks G Family!

H Family Portraits

Well we kept the mini session fun going with a portrait shoot of the H Family. New day, same park. You just can’t go wrong with this place, and I think the H boys would agree. We played a lot of tag, told a lot of jokes, and did our best to mimic the fountains. All on a gorgeous Saturday morn (the last week or so has been beautiful, am I right?). Thanks for all the smiles, H Fam!

R Family Mini Session

Ya’ll, little boys are the best. These two literally did not stop for air during our 20-minute mini session. And, if I do say so myself, all their playing led to some lovely and natural photos. Thanks for coming out to the mini sessions, R Family!

G Family Mini Session

The second mini session! As it turns out, the G family and I are practically neighbors so it was great fun to meet this sweet family and add them to my list of familiar faces in the neighborhood. Their boys were obviously buddies – it was so fun to watch them having fun together. Thanks for coming out, G Family!

V Family Mini Session

Last weekend was the weekend of the mini shoot! The V Family was brave enough to take the 8am time slot and we were all rewarded with gorgeous light and fantastic baby smiles 🙂 It is so hard to believe that 6 months ago, their little guy looked like this. How time does fly!
