Rowland Family: Family Session at Shaw Nature Reserve

I was absolutely thrilled when Charis asked me to photograph her cute, little family. She’s a photographer as well, and I LOVE her work, so it truly was a compliment to be asked. She also had the brilliant idea to go to Shaw Nature Reserve for their session. I had never been, but I completely trusted her judgement and it did not disappoint. It actually made me feel like I was somewhere other than the midwest at times. She also wanted me to take some head shots for her, that is why you will see some with just her beautiful self.

Anyway… I LOVED this session sooo… check em’ out! :)2014-09-30_0009 2014-09-30_0010 2014-09-30_0011 2014-09-30_0012 2014-09-30_0013 2014-09-30_0014 2014-09-30_0015 2014-09-30_0016 2014-09-30_0017 2014-09-30_0018 2014-09-30_0019 2014-09-30_0021 2014-09-30_0022 2014-09-30_0023 2014-09-30_0024

Simple, At-Home, Newborn Session in St. Louis

These simple, at-home newborn sessions are my absolute favorite way to photograph newborns. These types of photos really let the baby shine through and be the focus. We had to photograph this little guy two different days because he wasn’t quite sure about the whole, “sleeping and being real still while a stranger stares at me with a giant, black object clicking at my face,” kinda thing, but he ended up pulling it together and being a great little model. And a really cute, adorable one at that.
