I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I LOVE in-home newborn sessions!  If you are expecting, contact me (hello@angiemenos.com).  I’d love to come to your home and document those first few moments.  It goes by fast!  I can tell you from personal experience now.  My little guy is almost 8 months old and I truly cannot believe it.  It feels like just a few sleep-deprived nights ago that he was a newborn!  So anyways, last week, I got to meet this adorable newborn, little Arthur.  I have to say, he is one of the most photogenic babies I’ve ever photographed.  Newborns tend to make all kinds of crazy faces when they are awake, but this guy, he just looked around with those big, beautiful eyes.  Jessica and Chris, thank you so much for having me over to meet your sweet new addition!  Your home is lovely and I really enjoyed my time with you guys!

When planning a photo session, I typically ask if there is somewhere special they’d like to do the session.  Carrie told me that Tony used to live in Soulard and they spent a good amount of time down there and loved the area.  I love that area too!  It is so rich with history and character.  So, we took a stroll through the streets on one of the most gorgeous nights St. Louis has seen in a long time.  And we stopped anywhere that caught our eye on the way.  We had a lot of laughs, especially when the owner of a super cute door stoop swung his front door open and photo bombed our picture.  Thank you sir, for being so nice and letting us use your adorable home as our backdrop!  It was a really fun evening and I cannot wait to photograph these two on their big day!

This super sweet couple will be my first wedding of the 2017 season!  I remember the inquiry that Heather sent so well because she actually told me about who they are as a couple.  It wasn’t just a “hey, we want to know your prices”.  It was genuine and I loved what she had to say.  It reminded me of me and my husband.  I love how things work out like that and I end up with the most laid-back in love couples.  So needless to say, I really enjoyed photographing these two.  And we had amazing weather!  I mean, sunny and high 70’s at the end of October?  I’ll take it!

Fall sessions are in full swing and it feels oh so good to be back photographing sweet families.  For some families, this is the 5th year (wow!) and for others, like this awesome crew, this is the first!  I’m so thankful for both.  I do not take this job lightly.  I know these are your memories and something you will cherish for years to come.  So, beyond the beautiful, smiling, looking at the camera shot that is great for your holiday card, I try to capture some of the connections you have as a family too.  Because those are the things you really want to remember.  How you knew just how to make your little girl smile or the tenderness your son shows you when you ask for a kiss.  All of the tiny, seemingly every day things are what define you as a family and I find them so beautiful.  Although I just met this family, their love seems quite special and I am so happy I had the opportunity to photograph them.
