Haley & Lexi

As I stated in an earlier post I made a special trip to Southeast Missouri for cotton shoots in the fall of 2010.  I've done several shoots with Haley and Lexi and they never disappoint!  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Yarbrough (wedding)

I met the Yarbrough's a few weeks prior to their wedding through a mutual friend.  Their wedding took place at The Grand in New Albany, IN in the early summer of 2010.  If you would like to view the full album on Facebook follow the link below.

Josie (pageant)

Little Miss Josie needed some pictures for her upcoming beauty pageant so her Mommy contacted me and I made a photography trip to Missouri.  Having two boys I don't know how pageants work but her Mom told me that Josie won several prizes for several of the photos.  Just because she needed some photos didn't mean we could leave her brother Jake out so we got a few of him as well.  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Boo!! (Halloween)

Ryder (newborn)

Ryder made his highly anticipated arrival a little later than they expected.  He had a rough start nonetheless so he's a little older than what I usually do for newborn shoots.  He wasn't feeling the greatest but after some extra loving from Mommy and Daddy he went right to sleep and was great.  If you would like to view the entire album follow the link below.

Trent & Kristal (newlywed)

Trent and Kristal are longtime friends of mine.  They were in from Texas visiting for a week and wanted a newlywed shoot.  It was an extremely hot July day in 2010.  They got creative with how to stay cool at the end of the session.  If you would like to view the entire album on facebook follow the link below.

Here are my two favorites from the shoot.



Jude is 2! (birthday invitations) Pt 2

My favorite won't load so check the album out on Facebook.


Jude is 2! (birthday invitations) Pt 1

This shoot took place in Southeast Missouri in January.  It was terribly cold and snow was everywhere but I just had to have pictures for the invitations for my little guy's 2nd birthday.  I will have to do this post in two parts due to file size of two of the pictures.  If you'd like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Lay (wedding)

The Lay wedding was my first wedding in the summer of 09.  Kim, the Bride was more interested in ceremony pictures so, as a result, there aren't as many pictures as I normally take at weddings.  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

This place was incredibly gorgeous!

Danesha (senior)

I met with Danesha and her Aunt Stacie on a very cold, wet snowy December day for her senior session.  For super cold shoots where the client doesn't wish to wear a coat I figure out the pose then explain what I have in mind.  They get in place and ready, quickly remove their coat, take the pictures then bundle up real quick.  She was a pro and did wonderful!  She wasn't able to do a summer shoot but was still determined to have some summer looking photos.  So determined that in some she wore only short sleeves!!  We worked fast and she got what she wanted.  The ones I'm posting she is wearing a coat.  If you'd like to see the rest of the album on facebook, follow the link below.

The Welter boys

The cowboy shoot happened after a long and busy day of shoots in Southeast Missouri.  It was different than any other shoot I had done with a horse, cows and a miniature pony however, it was a fun one!  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook, follow the link below.

Valois (wedding)

I had the honor of meeting with David and Brooke again, but this time for their special day.  It was a beautiful, chilly November day!  Seeing them cry as they shared their vows was quite moving and only added to the beauty of the day.  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Little GiGi was mesmerized by Brooke.  It was adorable how she kept watching every move she made.

Alexander

I met with Alex, his sister and Mom a hot summer evening this past summer.  He's painfully quiet and shy but he did great and I had a few of those moments where I wanted to squeal from getting such a good shot.  If you would like to view the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Here are a few of my favorites from the session.




Brooke (Maternity)

Brooke is my best friend from Junior High.  She has supported me every step of the way with Foxtree.  We both had a vision for a cotton shoot but were too late in 2009 so we had to wait an entire year and we nearly missed it then due to less than average rainfall.  Little did we know in 2009 we'd be doing a maternity shoot for Brooke and little Jaxon as well as several other families in the Southeast Missouri area.  We did two sessions over a two day period, one being outdoors in a cotton field, the other being in a studio.

Landry (newborn)


I got the opportunity to spend some time with Landry, his Mommy and big brother Aiden this past summer.  It took little Landry a little while to be ok with having his picture taken but once he fell asleep we were good to go.  If you would like to see the entire album on Facebook follow the link below.

Now on to a few favorites from the session.



Watts family

This is the kind of shoot that was so fun I lost track of time.  The Watts family is a beautiful example of a blended family.  They're hilarious and each have so much personality.  If you want to view the entire album on Facebook click the link below.
