So, I have a confession, I love overcast, rainy wedding days. I know, no couple wants to deal with rain on their big day, but I think it always makes for some of the most gorgeous wedding photos. Kara and Sean’s wedding was no exception! This sweet couple met when they were both undergrads at […]

Our Fall wedding season is quickly approaching and what better way to start it off than with an absolutely gorgeous late August wedding at The Millbottom! I’ve been looking forward to Kelsey and Andrew’s wedding for almost a year now and it did not disappoint! These two are one of my absolute favorite couples I’ve […]

There’s something about early Summer weddings.  Everything feels so fresh and bright. This was certainly the case for Leah and Carter’s big day this past weekend at The Daisy Farm here in Jefferson City.  Leah and Carter have a love story that spans several states, and they are high school sweethearts, which is how all […]

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 […]

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 […]

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 […]

This week’s Favorite Thing is makeup! To say I’m into makeup would be an understatement. I own more palettes, brushes, and powders than anyone could ever use in a lifetime. I have spent an embarrassing amount of time watching YouTube makeup tutorials. I love makeup! But the one item that I have a really hard […]

I have a thing for purses. And not just any purses but really BIG purses. Purses so large you can fit an entire’s weekend’s worth of kids’ snacks, at least six lipsticks, and three years of Target receipts. I’m not exactly sure that you’re supposed to fill your purse with those things, but that’s what […]
