This little guy had my heart the day of his session.  Dad brought in a mini football as he was a football player. I had never used one before and I thought it actually was super cute!:)For most of his session he was wide eyed and ready to party. He also preferred being snuggle by his parents. I mean who can blame him! They wanted to snuggle him too of course. He was SO cute I could have smooched him all day.

This top photo of dad and his new little guy is one of my favorites of all time. Backlighting is my favorite way to shoot. I will be teaching more about how to do this when Kristen from Son Kissed Photography and I pair up for our newborn workshop in May. To learn more about that, just read here.

If you are a client looking to book a session, it’s best to book as early as you can so we can get you on the books and start planning. Most people book in their 1st or second trimester, but please feel free to ask last minute as there are certain weeks that are slower than others when I can fit in a few extra.

Love this little guy.

2015 schedule updates

Oh my goodness.

There are not enough words to describe the gratitude I have for St. Louis. When I first moved here one year ago from Chicago, I was nervous about being able to grow my business as quickly as I needed to. Kenny took a leap of faith, left his job at the Chicago Board of Trade to take up a job with CBS Radio. A TOTAL career change. From crazy hand signals, to crazy media people haha.  With career changes, come salary cuts. It’s kinda like starting over. So I needed to make sure I would maintain the level of business I had back in Chicago.

I am from St. Louis originally. I grew up here but moved away about 17 years ago, so moving home was not so much home anymore. Don’t get me wrong, I still bled red, and with Kenny being a Cubs fan, we had a mixed marriage for awhile there. Moving back to redbird country was an easy transition for me.  People are just NICE here. The traffic is better, the weather is better, and people are NICE.:)I can’t say that enough how important nice people are to me haha. KMOX greeted Kenny on his first day of work with a Cardinals and Blues pin to be worn on his suit (woah we had to buy suits). No other way than cold turkey right? The Cubs were an easier transition. He’s still a diehard Blackhawks fan.  That will never change.

So I want to thank you all for allowing me to grow here in a way, that for the first time since I have been in this business, I KNOW will will book up my sessions. As a photographer, well anyone in “sales”, not knowing, is scary.  So thank you. It means more than you will ever know to have that burden released.  On that note, this year I will be taking a few less shoots.  For 2015, because I will be spending a bit more time with the little guys and I need to keep nights open for weather issues. I will only 2 nights per week and one weekend per month.  I will also take 6 newborns per month, so please always contact me about newborns. I book those differently than my very scheduled sunset sessions.

This is hard for me to write as it’s SO hard for me to turn people away, or push them off until 2016.  You know those moms who go onto Pinterest and actually follow through with all that stuff? Yeah that’s not me. I wish it were! But it’s not. Well those super planners, have already planned half of my 2015 haha! This is why I am writing this post. So you can all jump in before all those super planners grab my sessions. I will keep this post updated and linked on my concat page. I will change the dates as they are taken.

Right now I am only booking into Sept. I will release my October dates once we know our family (planning) schedule a bit come January ;).

Here is my current session openings. Thank you again for always being so amazing. You all make my heart so happy to have the love of photography and capturing moments as I do. xoxo

NAPCP IMAGE RECOGNITION

Oh my goodness I was SO happy to be recognized by the National Association of Professional Photographers  for this newborn image! NAPCP image recognition is so fun! There are thousands of amazing photographers that submit images, so when a photo is actually recognized, it’s super fun! I love what I do so much, this totally made my year:)

I normally do not submit images to things as I am so busy. But for some reason this photo drove me to. The connection between the baby and dad just talked to me. Is that cheesy? Maybe but it did!:) The faces, everything about it. I just loved this shot.  Newborn photography has become a passion of mine. Thank you to NAPCP for the recognition:)
