Yesterday I, along with 10 other local professional photographers, volunteers, and staff, had our annual SHOOT FOR SEAMUS event at St. Louis Children's Hospital. Every year this is one of my favorite events and reminds me why I love being a photographer so much. High School friend, Sharon Johnston and her husband, Tom, lost their sweet baby boy, Seamus 9 years ago. Each year on the anniversary of his passing they bring lots of love to the NICU where Seamus spent 8 weeks after his premature birth. I am beyond grateful to be a part of this day. We photograph every baby and their familes in the NICU so they have precious memories and have a real first photo shoot. Tiny Super Heroes also donated capes for these mighty little ones. Here are some of the images from this special day. xo

I had so much fun digging through the vault of some of my favorite senior sessions over the years. Although my editing style has changed a bit, one thing remains the same... I LOVE SENIORS!! Their energy is contagious and I love bringing out their personalities. So excited for senior season to be here!!
Yesterday we had the most beautiful snow! Today the grass is green, sun is out, blue sky and no more snow. SO St. Louis! Thank you EMILY STISSER for playing with me! Isn't she the BEST!????
One of my goals for the year is to push myself out of my comfort zone. Try new things. Be creative more often. Surround myself with creative, inspiring people. So this weekend I grabbed Emily (who is 15 and is my good friend Rebecca's daughter) . and headed to our local Michaels Arts and Crafts store. There is a challenge going around social media called #michaelschallenge--encouraging photographers to shoot good photos in poor locations. So we did it. And on the way home we stopped under a bridge, at a car wash and a Kentucky Fried Chicken. I shot these for myself, for fun, for practice, for a challenge. ENJOY!

I was recently hired by Spire Energy (formerly Laclede Gas). My job was to bring their brand to life. Here is a small sampling of the images from our 3 day photo shoot. Thank you to Spire for the opportunity, Becky McFarland (stylist), Vanessa Devonne (make up), Susan Haviluck (producer), and all my models and friends to help me accomplish this!!
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!!
