U. City Home Sale Pending {University City Real Estate Photographer}

July 12, 2018 · Real Estate

I was happy to photograph this adorable University City home in June, and the homeowners had a contract on the first day…no open house necessary! I’m late posting images from this real estate photography session since I have been traveling for nature and summer camp photographs for a couple of weeks, but I didn’t want to miss the chance to share some of the images that helped sell the home. You can see other homes for sale by visiting Burfield Kantor Group online!

April 25, 2018 · Events

It’s been awhile since I’ve found the time to update my blog, but Claire’s Bat Mitzvah photographs have been on my mind for many weeks, so I was determined to post some of my favorites!

Claire is a strong, confident, beautiful young woman who did an amazing job leading services during her Bat Mitzvah in March. Her family is incredibly sweet, and it is a joy to be able to document these happy moments in their lives.

Hawn State Park in March {Missouri Nature Photographer}

March 26, 2018 · Pets, The Great Outdoors, Vacations

Somehow, during the last decade of camping with my family, we failed to venture very far beyond the two places that grew to be our “second homes” between May and September (Ozark Outdoors Riverfront Resort in Leasburg, Missouri and Twin Rivers Landing in Lesterville). However, after an incredible road trip through Kansas, Colorado, Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Oklahoma last summer, my interest in National and State Parks was ignited. As I explore my home state of Missouri, I’m continuously discovering beautiful places, some of which I have not heard, and some that have been long forgotten since childhood.

I was told about the beautiful hiking trails in Hawn State Park (Ste. Genevieve) a couple of years ago, and finally got around to visiting during Spring Break this week. While researching the trails prior to my trip, I discovered that there was a campground in the park, and since camping is my favorite way to enjoy Nature, I decided to make checking out the campsites a priority during my first visit. I had so much fun exploring the cozy little campground and Pickle Creek (a shut-ins stream which flows along it), that I didn’t actually have enough time to hike the trails because it started to rain. So, I made a reservation for later this year, and can’t wait to visit with my family and see what everything looks like during the warmer seasons!

Here are some photos I took during my March visit. Since I had trouble finding visitors’ pictures of the campsites online, I took a couple of my own in case anyone else searched Hawn State Park campsite photos. Many of the sites were booked, but I’ve included images of campsite 17 (and possibly campsite 23 with my car on the concrete pad, but now I can’t remember where I was parked when that photograph was taken) and walk-in campsites 49 and 50. All of the campsites along the creek have nice views, tall pines, and Pickle Creek running behind them. The entire campground is pretty flat, so if you’re tent camping, you’re sure to find plenty of level ground no matter where you are. There are running toilets and showers in the shower house near the end of the campground and vault toilets throughout the campground and near the trailheads. There are four trails between 300 ft. and 9.75 miles (one good for backpacking and three for hiking).
