Children's photographer

Grace is 1! // Forest Park // St. Louis, MO

I had the pleasure of photographing Miss Grace around her first birthday! What a sweet girl! We were blessed with some magical light on her photoshoot, along with some beautiful surroundings! Grace had a smile that lit up her surroundings, and very twinkly blue eyes that made your heart melt. And those lashes... and that adorable dress! She had some other funny expressions that captured what was on her mind. Like... "This balloon is amazing! Wow a clip to HOLD the balloon!". She was totally full of grace, but not afraid to get down and dirty when we wanted some crawling photos. She loves her Mommy and Daddy, her dog, books... and learning to walk. 


finn turns 2 // Alexandria, VA

This is a continuation of the below posts, journaling Finn's 2nd year; leading up to his 2nd birthday in December 2014. I will be posting all week. The final post taken the week of his 2nd birthday will be up tomorrow!

I love these two photo sessions seen below. The first one was taken in September.. on one of our last "summery" days, at the park around the corner. This was Finn's favorite place to go all summer long (besides the beach). I am so glad I decided to grab my camera as we ran out the door that day. These will be some seriously treasured photographs for years to come. I taught him to run the bases (although he preferred to run the wrong way). He slid in the dirt, as if he already knew how baseball players slide (natural instinct for boys I think). His spirit was free here. I have a hunch this little man is going to love baseball. You should see his throw.

The second series was taken on our way to the local Halloween parade. Finn wasn't feeling well, so my super-talented, crafty husband made a school bus out of our radio flyer wagon. He made it with the box it came in, and painted it himself! Finn still rides it around and refuses to let us take the cardboard bus off.
