Sweet Baby Boy #3!! {St. Louis Newborn Photographer}

March 7, 2017 · Family Bonds, Growing Babies, Just Born, Kiddos

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…

OMGosh!! What a perfect moment!

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:

Spring 2017 Bar Mitzvah {St. Louis Bar Mitzvah Photographer}

December 6, 2016 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

I’ve known this soon-to-be Bar Mitzvah boy for years, and have had the pleasure of celebrating many holidays, Shabbatot, and my daughter’s Bat Mitzvah with him and his family, but it wasn’t until after his “Get to Know You” Session that he totally opened up to me. I felt so special when he sprung up a fun conversation with me when I saw him at a Bar Mitzvah party a couple of weeks later! He’s sooo sweet and completely adorable. I’m super excited to capture his big weekend next Spring and to celebrate another special moment with his family!!

Three Adorable Boys!! {St. Louis Children's Portrait Photographer}

Lucky, lucky, lucky me!!! I’m so excited that I got to photograph this family again! I have been given the honor ever since their first son was born, but it had been quite awhile since I’d seen them. I had so much fun capturing these sweet, fun moments!!

Camp Ben Frankel {St. Louis Vacation Photographer}

I was so lucky to visit my daughter’s Jewish sleep away camp for four days last summer with a mission to capture the joy and community at this very special place. Here are some of the moments I preserved! For more information about this sweet, small, wonderful camp, visit http://campbenfrankel.com.

    These pictures are fantastic, and perfectly catch the camp experience at Camp Ben Frankel. My daughter, who has been to Ben Frankel, for four years now, cannot get enough of looking at them! My younger daughter cannot wait until she is old enough. I love the variety of activities, the diversity of the children, and ALL THE SMILES!!!

David's Pre-Bar Mitzvah

August 24, 2016 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

I’ve known David since Kindergarten, and have been photographing him for almost as long, so it’s crazy to see him so grown up!! Luckily, he’s still a sweet, funny, adorable guy, and I can’t wait to be a part of his Bar Mitzvah in November!

First Communion {St. Louis Children’s Portrait Photographer}

I loved spending time with “K” in honor of her first communion! She feels much more comfortable in sports attire, so I’m happy that she was willing to explore the Missouri Botanical Gardens with me in her beautiful dress!

Hannah's Pre-Bat Mitzvah Session {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

May 12, 2016 · Get to Know You Sessions, Kiddos

Although I’ve watched Hannah growing up at synagogue over the last few years, I haven’t really gotten to spend time getting to know her, so her pre-Bat Mitzvah portrait session was really special. She is super sweet and totally adorable, and I can’t wait to see her on the bimah leading Shabbat services!!
