Ketteman Family | St. Louis, MO. Family Photographer

     There's something so special about photographing friends and their precious families. The Ketteman's, who I'm sure you recognize from their many sessions, are some of our dearest friends and it has been a joy to capture their growing family over the past year. I'm convinced their family just gets more beautiful with each session! Matt, Kim, big sister Claire, and little Wesley are sure to bring a smile to your face today.  :)

I love their bright color choices - it's the perfect way to show off their vibrant personalities!

Claire loves her baby brother!

I just adore these photos of Wesley and his daddy. You can tell their best buds already. So so sweet.

Matt and Kim, thank you for letting me be a part of your growing family in so many ways over the past year. It has been such an honor to document these little moments and memories!

Wesley :: 7 Months | St, Louis, MO Children's and Baby Photography

     Remember the charming Mr. Wesley? He's 7 months old now {which I can hardly believe!!} and still as handsome as ever! We got together a few weeks ago to capture him in all of his steal-your-heart sweetness and it was so so fun! Plus, we got to test out a new home studio set-up! What do you think??

Is he a charmer or what??

And you know we had to take advantage of the warm weather + it gave us the chance to capture his cute little chubby self! I love me some baby chub. :)

Wesley, you are just adorable, little man! I can't wait to take more photos of you as you grow!!

Springfield, MO and St. Louis, MO Senior Photography :: Jordan

     A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of taking Jordan's senior pictures. Jordan is a great guy... I know because he happens to be dating my little sister! He's crazy tall, super funny, and multi-talented. We actually wound up having to take his photos on two different days because our first session ended abruptly with a tornado warning!

   Jordan will be attending MSU in the fall on a football scholarship, and I love these photos we took of him in his high school jersey. Football is one of many things he excels at and I think these photos are a perfect glimpse into that part of his story.

Congrats, Jordan, on graduating high school!! Can't wait to see where your journey takes you!

Newly Born :: Aiden - St. Louis, MO. Newborn Photographer

  At 10 days new, little Aiden was just as sweet as they come. His perfectly fair skin and darling pouty lips sure make for a handsome little guy! 

How cute is this tie onesie and newsboy hat?? Makes him look like a little man already!

And I'm kind of obsessed with these feature shots. There's something so magical and special about teeny tiny baby bits. :)

Aiden's Mom and Dad are huge Harry Potter fans, so of course, we had to get some shots of their little "Wizard in Training!"

And a few final shots of his adorable nursery (with some more HP nods)...

Thanks to Aiden's mommy and daddy for letting me capture their precious new addition! Such a sweet little guy!
