Springfield, MO and St. Louis, MO. Newborn photographer :: Newly Born Casen

     Remember when I had the privilege of taking maternity photos for this beautiful couple? Well, their stunning baby boy arrived this fall and I had the honor of capturing his week-old wonder too! He was seriously the best newborn I've ever been around - totally chill no matter what we did! Made our job easy! :)

I love little moments like this...mama and baby, quiet and sweet...

Casen's daddy is a farmer so it only seemed suitable that he should have his pictures taken with his cowboy boots and hat!

And his fishin' pole too, of course!

First photos as a family of three...

Sweet Casen, thanks for letting me take your pictures, buddy! You sure are a charmer and you have the sweetest parents to thank for that! Can't wait to watch you grow up, little man!

Springfield, MO Couples Photography :: Harding 1st Anniversary

     At the beginning of the summer (I know, I know...we' super behind on blogging! Trying to get caught up!), I had the chance to take first anniversary photos for this adorable couple. I love that they wanted to capture themselves, just as they were, after their first year of marriage. Too often, a couple's only professional photos of themselves are from their wedding day. My husband and I are even guilty of that! I think it's so important that we take the time to really capture ourselves - our marriages, our families, our lives - on more than just one big day, but rather, as we grow each year!

     Hannah and Luke love to read together and this cute little dock made the perfect spot to grab some shots of them doing just that!

     Hannah and Luke met at college and wanted their photos to be taken on their college campus. I was thinking we'd be taking photos around buildings and libraries. Instead, they took me to the hidden fields and valleys behind the school that made such a beautiful backdrop for their photos, don't you think?

Aren't they adorable?

Thanks again, Hannah + Luke! Congrats on your first's to many, many more!
