COME SAIL AWAY | CHATHAM, MASSACHUSETTS | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

While on my Cape Cod adventure, I got to meet the nicest family from Chicago. They were vacationing at the Chatham Bars Inn where we decided to do our photo shoot. 

 These kids were the best! It's easy to see how much the girls love their little brother!

AUGUST 21, 2016 | THE LITTLE BIT FOUNDATION | ST. LOUIS CHARITIES

For the past few years, I have had the honor of working with The Little Bit Foundation. Rosemary Hanley started The Little Bit Foundation to remove obstacles standing in front of the greatest opportunity young students have to end the cycle of poverty - their education. Little Bit helps provide basic needs, such as shoes, coats, uniforms, underwear and socks, books and school supplies. They help ensure that students have a nutritious meal after the school day, receive instruction in personal and dental hygiene, and so much more. Below are pictures are just a few of the students that Rosemary Hanley and The Little Bit Foundation help.

 Working with The Little Bit Foundation is incredibly rewarding and important work. We at Heidi Drexler Photography want to encourage you to get involved in any way you can. Click on the button below to learn how to help The Little Bit Foundation today!

AUGUST 16, 2016 | CRUISE AROUND HYANNIS PORT, MA | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Getting to travel to my clients is truly one of my favorite parts of my job. This is my 3rd summer photographing Sam and his parents from Massachusetts. We met in Hyannis Port, MA and spent the day cruising and just having fun!

This car is the car of my dreams. How perfect for a sunny beach day drive?!

Is it just me, or is Sam becoming a mini-model before our eyes. That pose!

As if the car wasn't cool enough, we decided to head to the beach to see what we could find.

It's safe to say that I was the star of the show with Sam. He was SO excited to see me and hang out. Or at least until Santa showed up. 

This was such a memorable day and I cannot wait to continue to capturing even more memories for many summers to come!

SARA + FAMILY| LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

When Sara called and said that she wanted to do a family photo session while the kids' grandparents were in town from Hawaii, I was thrilled! It's not often you get three generations together which makes it such a special moment when you do. Laumeier Sculpture Park was the perfect spot for us to spend the afternoon!

Be still my heart with these two!

These sweets kids were doing a walk/run because they got to have a special icecream treat after our shoot! 

THE STAM FAMILY | ST. LOUIS | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Hands down, my favorite place to do a family session is at their home. The Stam family is no exception. Daughters Madelyn, Claire, and Kate stole the show! We had so much fun just frolicking around the yard and playing.

Can you say gorgeous?!

Swing sets are the absolute best. Not only do kids love playing, but I find some of my favorite pictures are taken on them!

We ended our session hanging out with the girls' best friend! Thanks for stopping by!

THE WATSON FAMILY | LAUMEIER SCULPTURE PARK | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHY

Meet the Watson family! Daughter Kate and son Luke gave me a run for my money, literally! We ran through Laumeier park on the most beautiful summer evening.

 

Can we take a moment and swoon over these two amazing parents?

Future models, don't you think?!

It was so fun getting to hang out with the Watson family!

Thanks for stopping by the blog and we can't wait to see you later!

THE WELLS FAMILY | ST. LOUIS | FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

Meet the Wells Family!! From the moment I arrived at their darling home, I knew we were going to have a great time. Mrs. Wells is an elementary school teacher and this photo session was a gift from her students! I hope you enjoy the photos as much I enjoyed taking them!

One of my favorite moments during our photo shoot was seeing this amazing sign. Mr. Wells is a huge baseball fan and they keep the sign up all summer long! Thank you for the fun Wells family!

CARRIE + JOHN | BOETTCHER FARM | JUNE 18, 2016 | ST. LOUIS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY

I think it's safe to say that I don't consider myself a wedding photographer. But, every once I while, a special couple comes along and I put on my wedding photographer hat and get to work.

Luckily for me, I have known this amazing bride since high school. Carrie and I attended Kirkwood High School where we were on Pommies together. So when she called, I answered. Their wedding day could easily be featured in Martha Stewart Weddings Magazine. I pretty much fell over when they had their first dance with a silo in the background. Swoon. I hope you enjoy a sneak peek into their magical day!

When I saw this sign, I knew this wedding would be one I would never forget. As a side note, let's all take a moment to imagine me, on the ground, on the side of the road, taking this picture. I LOVE MY JOB!

 

Carrie + John brewed a special wedding beer, cool factor: one million. Needless to say, it was delicious!

Cheers to Carrie + John on a beautiful wedding and an even more beautiful life together!

My dearest Heidi, words cannot express how I feel at this moment. The photos you captured are breath taking and so beautiful. I’m literally crying tears of happiness. You captured our day to the 10th degree and I will never forget this day because of your talent and generosity. You captured every special moment. I am truly in love with this pictures and am so grateful. THESE PICTURES ROCK!
— A thank you note from Carrie
