April's Maternity Session

April's maternity session was a lot of fun despite the FREEZING weather. The session basically went like this....shed off your warm coats...take the and put your coats back on. (Although I am being a little dramatic, I promise, it was still REALLY cold!) This family was a lot of fun to capture pictures for. April has a gorgous smile and she and her husband interacted adorably. Big brother and sister joined us for the session, also, they were so cute and were troopers during the entire session! April, congrats on your pregnancy, I cannot wait till your little one arrival!




I just love this family picture!


Favorite picture of the session...I just love the background and their expressions.

Ben and Kristina are MARRIED!

Ben and Kristina just got married! I was so excited to do this wedding because Tony and Ben know each other from Breakdown STL and I have heard about him from day one of Tony being in Breakdown. I was sooo excited to meet him and his lovely bride-to-be, Kristina. Their wedding was very fun. They were an amazing couple with a REALLY fun wedding party. Jessie and I had a great time shooting their wedding.

These rocks were signed by the guests and Ben and Kristina commited to pray for each person every day for the first year of their marriage.

Jessie got this amazing shot of Kristina...I couldn't love it anymore! Thanks Jessie for your awesome job assisting!

I am lovin' the bride and this dress!

Favorite portrait of the day!

And after the wedding they stopped by Sonic for a little snack...yum!

Sarah and Nathan

Sarah and Nathan are such an amazing couple. They have an amazing love story...they have know each other since they were very young. It was neat to hear about how God brought them together after years of know each other and Sarah having a crush on Nathan. There was a lot of laughing and giggling during this session, which I just loved! We had a great time and I cannot wait till their wedding in May. Plus, an added bonus to this session was the gorgeous fall leaves!

I love this kissing picture, my favorite kissing picture of the session!

I love the fall!

Sarah had an awesome tattoo that had to make it into the shoot...

Favorite picture of the session. This was a really steep hill with a ton of plants. They walked down it like champs. I really love their expressions and how everything around them is faded by this.

Okay, so Nathan is always laughing and smiling! I would ask him to give me a model or serious look and he could hold it for only a second. That is the case in the picture honestly, that is one of the main reasons is really like this picture.
