Sam | Cape Cod Photographer | Hyannis port

I've been photographing Sam every summer since 2014 in Hyannis port, Mass.  He is my buddy and I look forward to it each year!  We spent the night cruising in his 1957 Chevy Continental, visiting Squaw beach, and Hyannis port Pier.  His family has the tradition of vacationing on the Cape each summer and I am so lucky to be able to capture these moments for them.

Boy or Girl??!! |St. Louis Family Photographer

When my marketing manager, Caitlin, told me she was expecting her first baby I immediately had flash backs to a gender reveal I saw on line about 8 years ago.  I have been waiting to recreate this for so long and they were the perfect couple.  After the ultra sound yesterday, she brought me the sealed envelope with the sex so I could start planning.  And here is how it went down. (HUGE thanks to THE SHACK for helping pull this off.  Besides having amazing food, the staff was incredible to work with.  Thank you Josh and Christine!! ) Oh ya, and today is Caitlin's birthday!!  

 IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

IT'S A BOY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 Thank you for letting me document this special time. I am SO happy for you both and can't wait to meet AND PHOTOGRAPH your sweet baby!

Fall Mini Sessions-recap! | St. Louis Family Photographer

What a weekend!  Thank you so much to everyone that participated in my first ever Fall Mini Session!  I could not have pulled it off without a little help from some friends.  I love my fellow women business owner friends who 'get it' and understand I can't do all of this alone.  First, thanks to Becky Ortyl and Rebecca Stisser for helping me plan such a large event.  They have the best ideas and are both take charge kind of girls!  Please check them out as they are amazing at what they do.  http://rebeccastisser.com/ and http://www.mightyoakes.org/ and http://www.oliveandoakstl.com/

And also a big thank you to Stacie @ Paisley Boutique in Webster Groves.  She helped pull it all together with her wardrobe and accessories to style those that were interested.  It was a long couple of days but such a success.  

Now to editing...whew.  Check out a few pics from the weekend!

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 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!

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!
