Jingle Jungle

My girlfriends had a cookie bake/ pajama party for their neices, and Ava and Charlie of course. I had so much fun taking pictures of my friends and their kin, just kickin it holiday style.


I always have fun when I do photo shoots or else I wouldn't be doing them. This family however was an absolute blast! Their daughter has a more expansive vocabulary than I do, and we even joked that she would make a great babysitter for my son, as she throughout the photo shoot showered him with gifts as if he were baby Jesus himself. I could truly feel the joy in this home, and I am so grateful they invited me to come and play.

Santa Baby

I just think my man is so much fun. I never in a million years knew that this age would be so entertaining. He puts up with me and the camera in his face 24/7 like a champ. My little santa baby. I just love him to pieces.

I had never photographed a wedding before, So needless to say I now have a whole new respect for wedding photographers. The people you see in these photos are my brother Cory and his new wife Amanda. They share a special connection and love for eachother that is very real. I enjoyed being able to capture this day for them.

Most recently, I had the priveledge of taking my girlfriend Amy's family pictures. The little men in her life are so strong and full of energy. I love this about them. She is such a beautiful mother. I went to her house on the first of December and it was suprisingly nice enough out to shoot the majority of photos outside.

The Muresan Girls

I had no idea what I was getting myself into when I told my girlfriend Kim that I would take pics of her twin 18 month old girls. These little tootsies, were so funny and full of life. I absolutely love them.

The Rose Family

Chris, Rebecca and Conner. We shot these pics at Highland city park. What a crew. We just let this energetic little man run around and be himself, there was even an unexpected potty break. They were so adaptable and easy to shoot. I couldn't adore this little family more.

The Heslop Family

This family is just precious. I took these pictures at the Missouri Botanical Gardens. Between walking the gardens and wonderful conversation, I shot pictures. Talk about easy. I love this family because the adoration they have for eachother is undeniable. They were my first shoot, and will always hold a special place in my heart.


Hello all,
After careful consideration I decided that this was the most natural progression for my photography. I truly began this "adventure" on accident after I noticed I was taking literally hundreds of photos a day of my new baby boy, Charlie. He was my inspiration and I truly believe God gave him to me so that I might know myself a little better, and surprisingly other people as well. Taking pictures of children and families has been such a wonderful blessing. I love the reaction people have when they see themselves through a new perspective. I hope you enjoy the pictures, as they too are my babies. I cherish each and every person I have been given the opportunity to photography and pray that there are many more to come.
