I know Christmas has come and gone but here’s one more bit of Christmas magic!  I love photographing this sweet family.  This mama has been so wonderful to me.  She is as kind as can be, sends me awesome referrals and is always filled with gratitude after our sessions.  She sure knows how to make a photographer feel good!  Also, she is the coolest mom ever for getting her two sweet kiddos a puppy for Christmas!  I’m pretty sure that was at the top of my wish list every single year as a child.

I’m still trying to catch up with posting from this Fall.  Is it just me or does it seem like once Thanksgiving is here, everything after that just zooms right on by til we’re in the new year?!  My husband and I both have bigger families and they mostly live in St. Louis so we have a lot of family events in December! Anyways, back to this adorable duo.  I love these images so much!  I’ve done more sessions like this (one parent, one child) this year and I have to say, I truly enjoy it!  It really shows the connection and special bond in their relationship.  Also, it’s a bonus when it’s your friend you get to capture with his daughter!  I feel so lucky to be able to capture these moments.  Thank you for always trusting me with your family images.  I truly appreciate it!!

I’m pretty sure I’ve made it loud and clear, I LOVE newborns!!  Please, invite me over to your home to photograph you and your little one!  I love every minute of it.  I so enjoyed meeting this little guy.  His mama booked their session awhile ago and I’ve been anxiously awaiting his newborn shoot.  And let me tell you, he is precious!!  He is one lucky little man too.  You can tell how much his parents adore him.  Even through the exhaustion of new parenthood – the way they looked at him was everything.  To top it all off, he has one of the cutest nurseries I’ve ever seen!  Like, out of a magazine adorable!

Oh this couple is just the best!!  I feel like we clicked from our first meeting together.  Then we had such a blast during their engagement session in Soulard and then their wedding day was the perfect Fall day!  Carrie was such a beautiful and laid-back bride (maybe she was hiding it well or she was actually just that calm!).  But honestly, the whole day had that relaxed feel to it.  Carrie and Tony are so sweet and natural together.  And they have a great group of friends and family!!  It was such an amazing day on so many levels!  Carrie and Tony, thank you so much for including me in your day.  It was wonderful to capture these memories for you two!

If you’ve been following my blog for awhile, you’ll recognize this family!  They are always so well-dressed, their kids are wonderful (and adorable!) and we try to do a new location every session.  Usually they suggest a location that means something to their family, which I love!  This year we did the Missouri Botanical Gardens and I could tell just how special this place is to them!  The kids knew the place like the back of their hand and loved running around to their favorite spots.  These kids really are incredible and their bond with each other is the sweetest.  I feel lucky to see and photograph this family every year!family photographer angie menos saint louis missouri
