Total Solar Eclipse in Leasburg, Missouri 2017 {St. Louis Child Photographer}

August 22, 2017 · Kiddos, Snapshots, Vacations

My family and I, along with some close friends, met in the path of totality, at one of our favorite campgrounds, Ozark Outdoors Riverfront Resort, in Leasburg, Missouri to witness and experience the amazing transformation of our sky during the 2017 solar eclipse. We were lucky to have 2 minutes and 5 seconds of totality surrounded by the beauty of the Meramec River.

One of the most memorable parts of my experience was the changing of the light, from a typical sunny summer day to a dimming warm light that casted detailed shadows like we had never seen. Hearing and feeling the shared excitement of family, friends, and strangers brought a unique feeling of connection and solidarity. Not only did the sky radiate with the colors of a sunset and the bugs start chirping as we had heard would happen, but our children actually decided to change out of their swimming suits and put on dry clothes because they were “done swimming for the day” as the moon continued on it’s journey past the sun. Only after the eclipse was totally over did they realize that it was still early afternoon and, with a hot summer sun once again blazing above their heads, there was still plenty of time to float down the river a couple more times.

Here are some moments I was able to capture…

Arkansas Spring Break {Family Vacation Photographer}

March 30, 2017 · Kiddos, Snapshots, Vacations

A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to join her and her daughters (who are also friends with my children) in crystal mining and camping in Arkansas for a few days during Spring Break. If you know me, you know there’s a slim chance I’ll say no to an invitation to go camping. It’s my favorite thing to do!! We camped on Lake Ouachita at Joplin Campground and had a blast mining for crystals. It was such a beautiful few days away from home!

Welcome to the world Baby “W!” I’ve had the honor of taking his brothers’ portraits a couple of times, so I was extra excited when Mom called to tell me that he was on the way! What a fun family with three adorable boys!!! Here are some super sweet moments from Baby “W’s” newborn session at seven weeks!

One of my favorite things in the world is a full baby belly…

I think this is the biggest newborn smile I’ve ever caught with my camera!

Congratulations to Mom, Dad, and Big Brothers “D” and “G”!!

Ellior's Get to Know You Session {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

February 16, 2017 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

It is so hard to believe that I began photographing Ellior’s family during her big sister’s Get to Know You Session back in 2011, and now, only five years later, after also photographing her two big brothers, it’s finally Ellior’s turn!! I’ve been so honored to be part of this family’s special moments, and can’t wait to see how amazing Ellior will be on the Bimah in May!

    Ellior is a terrific young lady. I’m so glad to have her in drama class.
    Looking forward to her Simcha.

Happy 1st Birthday Baby

February 8, 2017 · Birthday Shoots, Family Bonds, Growing Babies, Kiddos

This family seriously deserves a round of applause. Out of four children, they managed to complete my “Growing Baby’s 1st Year” set of portrait sessions with their first baby (that’s not so hard) and their FOURTH (that’s a much bigger challenge)!! We were so lucky to have a gorgeous, sunny, 60 degree day during Baby “J’s” 1st birthday photo session last Sunday. Unfortunately, the beautiful weather didn’t make it any easier to get two adults, two children, a toddler, and a 12 month old baby to all smile and look at the camera at the same time! I still had so much fun with them though! Here are a few moments from Baby “J’s” portrait session:
