The Edwardsville Children’s Museum – Night At The Races

The red carpet photos have been posted for the Edwardsville Children’s Museum’s Annual Night At The Races Fundraiser! This year the event took place at the Sunset Hill’s Country Club, while keeping with the Kentucky Derby Theme. Guests arrived dressed to the nines in their matched hats and bow ties. They were greeted with red carpet photos, gift bags and champagne as they entered the event.

A silent auction, live auction and other games & raffles were available throughout the evening, topped off of course by the live betting on 5 horse races, made this year’s event the most successful fundraising event to date for the ECM!

St Louis Family Photographer

St Louis Family Photographer – The Muny & Forrest Park

Working as a St Louis family photographer I love shooting at the Muny & in Forrest Park.  These two St Louis gems are by far some of the best places for family pictures.  Throw in a great family that is gorgeous and love to love each other, and I call that a slice of heaven!  This session was primarily to celebrate baby sister’s one year milestone, but it quickly turned into a family affair.  Watching big brother love on her as well as Mom and Dad made my heart gush.  It doesn’t get much better than this.  Have a look for yourself!

Senior Pictures

Senior Pictures With My New Friend Austin

I love it when I get the opportunity to take senior pictures!  Working with babies and kids is so much fun, but it is nice to have a subject that listens to directions and doesn’t move after I pose them!  Austin and I had fun walking through the woods and then going to one of my new favorite locations in Collinsville, IL.  We discovered that when you tell him to put his chin down, he smiles even bigger (who knew), and that my threats of tickling are pretty pointless (ok that was my bad, its a habit-SORRY).  This evening shoot was during the golden hour which provides the best warm light for portraits of all types.  Here are a few of my favorites from the session!

Spring Portraits

Spring Portraits With The Easter Bunny

Spring portraits with live animals are always my favorite sessions.  The kids are so captivated by the animal visitors that most of the time they forget they are even getting their portraits taken.  With Easter being so early this year, I was thankful to have the studio set up so everyone could stay warm and dry!  Here are a few of my favorites from the weekend mini sessions.  It was a busy day with what was originally 15 sessions on the books that grew to 19 mini sessions!  Needless to say the bunny and I slept well on Saturday night after all the excitement.  A big thank you to our friends that let the bunny spend the day with us.  She was so well behaved and great with all the children!

St. Louis Newborn Photographer

St. Louis Newborn Photographer – Now Booking for Summer 2016

St. Louis newborn photographer now booking for the summer! This little man gave me a run for my money last weekend.  He was so wide awake for a newborn and strong.  I think he might be crawling by his 3 month photo session (just kidding-but yeah, maybe).  I always tell parents that the smart ones are always so curious, so little baby A is as smart as they come.  Eventually with enough food and snuggles he got cozy and we were able to get some adorable shots of him!  What do you think?

Newborn Photography Session – Little Baby L

St. Louis Newborn Photography Session

I am so excited to post these images from a newborn photography session I did a few weeks ago in my clients home.  The versatility of my set up is fantastic because it really travels well.  Giving new Mom’s the option to not worry about packing everything up for a newborn session and getting everyone ready and loaded up is such a pleasure.  As a Mom of 2 little ones, I know that making sure everyone is dressed and ready to go (and then stays that way for the commute) can add so much more stress during this special time.  On the other hand, I also have known many Mother’s who prefer to not worry about picking up the house or making room for photos, and in that case, I am thankful to have my studio to offer them!

This little man was an absolute angel.  Although he didn’t like being swaddled too tightly, we found a happy medium with the wraps and he slept through most of the session.  Mom and Dad were able to sit down and relax while I positioned and posed him for all these adorable shots!

Junior Service Club Great Gatsby Gala

Junior Service Club Fundraiser

Saturday evening the Edwardsville & Glen Carbon Junior Service Club hosted their annual gala fundraiser.  This year’s theme “The Great Gatsby” made for a fantastic evening at Sunset Hills Country Club.  Guests arrived and walked the red carpet to their check in point.  From there they were able to get their red carpet photo taken, or browse through a very impressive silent auction.  Guests were then seated in the dining room for the live auction and plated dinner.  The live auction had some heated competition all in good fun to raise funds for the community!  Topped off with a bid frenzy, interactive game of heads or tails and finally live music for a very successful evening.  More photos from the evening can be found online here.
