Emily + Mike | One Year Anniversary

Mike and Emily are lovers of all things creative and unconventional. Last April they eloped in Joshua Tree (see the images here) and on their first anniversary we took them out for a night shoot. One of the (many) things we love about Mike and Em is that they are always down for getting weird and being adventurous - which, in turn, allows us to experiment with stuff that we don’t get to do too often.

Libby + Ben | Springtime Forest Park Engagement Session

Spring is always a mixed bag here in the Midwest. You could be graced with beautiful 72 degree weather one day, and chilly overcast weather the next. Ben and Libby are planning their St. Louis wedding from their home base of NYC, and they scheduled their engagement session while they were in town checking off things on their wedding to-do list. The weather was pretty brisk but we just rolled with it - and the upside is that Forest Park was basically deserted so we had our run of the place ;)

Baby Quinn | In-Home Lifestyle Session

Sweet Baby Quinn was born early at just 25 weeks old. She spent 4 months in the NICU, so her parents got in touch to set up a “welcome home” session when she was released from the hospital. I can’t imagine what that NICU experience must have been like, but I’m what I’m sure of is that they are so happy to finally have their baby home.

Grace + Matt | Engaged

So excited to share this session with you all! I met Grace a couple years back when she was the planner for a wedding we photographed. I was immediately drawn to her friendly, warm, and outgoing nature. Last summer we had the chance to hang out + work together again when Grace organized a wedding vendor booth at Pride. We were absolutely thrilled when she and her fiancé Matt reached out to us to shoot their wedding. Grace is in the wedding industry herself, and Matt is an awesome street photographer, so the fact that they chose us really means a lot.

Ryan + Becky | A Proposal

When Ryan reached out to me about photographing his proposal to his girlfriend Becky, I was thrilled! Becky is originally from St. Louis, but they currently both reside in Nashville. Proposing to her in her hometown was really important to Ryan, and a must-have for his plan included a stellar view of the Arch.

Alli + Dan | Central West End Engagement Session

I don’t know about anyone else, but every single year I hear the date “March 1st” and I IMMEDIATELY think spring. Something in me completely forgets that technically it’s still winter until the very end of this month. The day of Alli + Dan’s engagement session, mother nature definitely did not let us forget that winter is still clinging on to the Midwest.

Slow season is taking its toll and my friend Emily of Juniper Films came into the loft so we could make some images together. I will say that couples and families are more of my wheelhouse, so posing single people is not something I do often…if ever. But the great thing about photographing Emily is that she really just does her thing and doesn’t need a ton of direction.

Lifestyle Family Session | Alton, IL

At-home sessions are my favorite kind of family sessions to shoot. There’s just something about kids in their natural habitat that make them so fun to photograph. The comfort level at home means that kids can be 100%, unapologetically THEMSELVES. I encourage families to have fun at home and to forget about the camera.
