Congratulations 2022 High School Senior Ellior! {St. Louis High School Senior Photographer}

October 7, 2021 · High School Seniors

I can’t believe Ellior is a senior in high school! She’s the last of four children in her family, and I’ve had the pleasure of photographing all of their bar/bat mitzvahs, as well as all of their high school senior pictures. Ellior has grown up to be a fun, beautiful, balanced young woman! I can’t wait to see what she accomplishes!!

Here are some of my favorite images from her mini portrait session!

Mazel Tov to Wash U College Graduate Amy! {St. Louis College Grad Photographer}

May 28, 2021 · Events

I had a blast with this beautiful, smart, joyful Washington University college graduate last week!! One of my specialties (and favorites) is high school senior portraits, but this was my first college graduate portrait session. College grad sessions are now definitely on my list of top three favorite sessions (the other one is newborns)! We had fun experimenting with champagne and sparkling apple cider popping in celebration! I love her positive attitude, and wish her the best on this next step in her journey through life!! It’s a huge moment to graduate from college after years of hard work and determination and to step into the world, ready to tackle it with new focused knowledge, excitement, and hope. It was truly an honor to be able to capture some memories of this time in Amy’s life. I know she will succeed!

Here are just a few of the happy moments we had together!

Congrats 2021 High School Senior "A"! {St. Louis High School Senior Portrait Photographer}

April 30, 2021 · High School Seniors

Congratulations to this sweet, cute high school senior! I first met him and his family during a family portrait photography session about five years ago, so it was extra fun to see him grown up for his senior pictures!! This was supposed to be a mini session, but I was having too much fun that I accidentally doubled the length of the session. Here are some of my favorites…

Mazel Tov "J"! {St. Louis Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

April 26, 2021 · Events

This patient young woman waited an entire year to have her Bat Mitzvah due to the COVID-19 pandemic sweeping the world. After multiple date changes, the family finally decided it was best to just wait until 2021. Although “J” was still unable to have a typical Bat Mitzvah party, she could, at least, have something smaller and more intimate, which I think is extra special. I love this family and I love this incredibly smart, unique, beautiful girl. Mazel tov everybody!! Thank you for allowing me to captured these moments!

Oh boy!! This adorable family sure has their hands full now with two baby boys only a year apart! I’m so excited to have been able to photograph these guys when their first bundle came into the world, again, just last month, for his 1st birthday portraits, and now for his baby brother’s newborn portrait session. I look forward to meeting Baby #3 in the not-too-distant future as well! 🙂 Congratulations everyone!

Congrats to High School Senior Class of 2021, Ethan!! {St. Louis High School Senior Photographer}

November 25, 2020 · High School Seniors

It was another windy Fall day for this senior portrait session last week, but I personally love having wind during portrait sessions because I think it adds a little bit more “life” to the images. Ethan showed a lot of patience considering that I asked him to run his fingers through his hair A LOT of times. Here are some of my favorite images. Congratulations and good luck to Ethan!

I hope this senior guy doesn’t mind me saying how cute (and cool, of course) his senior pictures turned out! He was so sweet and fun during his high school senior portrait session in downtown St. Louis last week! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation, and let’s hope next year is better than 2020!!

Happy 1st Birthday Baby "J"! {St. Louis Baby Photographer}

November 5, 2020 · Birthday Shoots, Growing Babies

It’s surely been one heck of a year since I met this adorable, sleepy (at the time) baby boy and his sweet parents when he was just about five days old for his newborn photography session. This week I had the opportunity to take his first birthday portraits. First birthday sessions are one of my favorites, right up there with newborn sessions and high school seniors. This fall season has been quite windy, but luckily none of this little guy’s birthday balloons popped in the grass! Here are a few fun photos that I loved from our session…

COVID-19 has really forced me to slow down and to recognize and appreciate all that is good in my life. However, I sure am excited to have a busy Fall schedule with my favorite people to photograph (high school seniors and newborn babies)!! What beautiful weather we had during this class of 2020/2021 graduating senior portrait session!! I’m excited to meet this senior’s twin brother next weekend!

Our Baby's Bat Mitzvah {St. Louis Family & Bat Mitzvah Photographer}

September 9, 2020 · Events

Well, aside from the fact that we’ve been living the strange reality into which the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us over the last six months, somehow our youngest child celebrated her Bat Mitzvah this Labor Day weekend and will turn thirteen next week! Although “L’s” Bat Mitzvah was very different than our first two children’s B’nai Mitzvah, it was, in a way, possibly a little more special. We were limited on the number of guests we could invite into the sanctuary. We all signed waivers to enter the synagogue, wore masks, and sat at least six feet apart from other families. Sadly, we had to leave out a lot of people we love, but we are grateful to have been able to invite at least a few of our closest family members and friends to witness and take part in an intimate ceremony. Most of these images are from the Bat Mitzvah rehearsal. I’ve also included two family portraits we were able to create in a park on Saturday afternoon.

Holding our breath!
