Alex and Annisa’s wedding was absolutely the perfect way to kick off our 2019 wedding season.  Seriously, it was magic. Annisa and Alex are an incredible couple who met during Annisa’s first semester at UMSL. Annisa had just transferred from another college and was dealing with the homesickness and adjusting that comes with moving to […]

2019 has definitely started out as the year of babies and I’m totally here for it! Last week I had the opportunity to capture Melanie’s first pregnancy and she is one of the most gorgeous expectant moms I’ve ever met! I wish I had looked even a fraction as put together and radiant as she […]

I’ve been meaning to write an update post about our new dog, Pippa, for a few days now, but we’ve unexpectedly had our hands full.  Almost two weeks ago, our oldest cat, Fat, was diagnosed with Diabetes. This was pretty shocking for us as we hadn’t realized cats were even capable of developing Diabetes. And […]

So far 2019 has been the year of the new moms for me and I have to say, I’m kind of excited about it!  Over the weekend I had the honor of capturing an extra special maternity session in Sedalia for Kim and Shawn. I have a lot of history with this couple- Kim, Shawn, […]

It’s well known that our family loves cats. We have 4 cat babies and they are absolutely loved members of our family! But really, we aren’t just cat people, we’re animal people. Scott and I have long debated adding a dog to our family but we wanted to make sure we (and our kids) were […]

I cannot believe it has been a year since I shot this couple’s wedding and here they are about to welcome their first baby into the world! Thankfully, unlike their wedding day, we did not have an ice storm to contend with for this maternity session, but Traci and Cole did have to brave the […]

If you’ve kept up with me for awhile now, you may know of my love of Dunn Brother’s Coffee. I’m not really much of a coffee person, but I LOVE tea. If you ever find yourself in my home, you’ll notice I’m always fully stocked with my favorite tea from Golden Moon Tea Company. I […]

When we first started getting our kids involved in chess, I don’t think we realized what a big part of our lives it would become. Our oldest son, Jack, first asked to learn to play when he was about 8.  Scott taught him the basics, but neither Scott or I play proficiently, so it became […]

Babies might be my  favorite genre of photography, right after weddings.  Is it possible to hold a brand new baby and not feel happy? I don’t think so. Due to my schedule, I don’t often get the opportunity to photograph Fresh 48 sessions, but I was so excited when Hailee and Jon asked me to […]

It’s no secret I love to read. This winter weather lately has given me a great excuse to get caught up on all the books I have sitting on the shelf, both in the real world and on my Kindle. I devour books at an unhealthy rate, and while I mostly stick to novels, lately […]
