LMTPhotography bio picture
  • Welcome!

    I fell in love with photography when I was teaching in China. My eyes were opened to a world of beautiful faces and incredible art as I roamed the streets and markets of Shanghai. I took pictures of every new and exciting detail and scene to help me remember my time there when I returned home.

    Because photography is the memory of our lives. Photographs never change, even when the people in them do. My family lost my brother-in-law at a young age shortly after I returned from China. All we have left of him are the memories through our pictures. I wish we had more pictures of all of us together to show my kids the love and laughs we shared. Losing him motivated me to be a better memory creator for my family, and it fuels my passion for creating beautiful, timeless images that capture smiles and spirit.

    My goal as a photographer is to make this easy for you. I'm a mom of 5. I get that things need to be simplified in life. Let me give you pictures you'll love and an experience you'll enjoy. Now is the right time to schedule your session! Contact me--let's do this for you!

Holcomb Family Session {Saint Louis Family Photographer}

The last time I photographed these love birds
was for a “trash the dress” session after their wedding.
(Don’t worry…they didn’t actually trash the dress!)

Now their little family has grown to three!

You might not be able to tell from these pictures,
but it was a balmy (maybe) 40 degrees for their session.
They (especially little Andrew!) were champs!
And it makes you appreciate all those smiles even more! ๐Ÿ™‚

Holcomb family, I hope these pictures will be a treasure for years to come!

Lueker Extended Family Session {Saint Louis Area Family Photographer}

If returning clients are the best compliment to a photographer,
the next best thing are referrals!
And that’s how the Lueker family came to me (thanks, Thurman family!)

It was a joy to get to hear the Lueker’s family story as they adopted their kids
(who are actual siblings!) from Ethiopia
and to meet their extended family.
I love shooting extended family sessions because I know firsthand
how precious those pictures become when you lose loved ones.
It’s always a challenge to get large groups of people with different schedules together,
but they did it!
And I pray these images will bless them with joy for many years to come!

Erin’s Senior Session {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

If return clients is a measure of a photographer’s reputation, then I am blessed!
Two third-time returning clients in a row! I love it! <3

I’ve had the pleasure of watching Erin’s family grow over the last four years,
from two kids in high school to one to…almost an empty nest!
Erin is an amazing person–she travels all over the country with her field hockey team.
She has been captain of her varsity high school team two years in a row.
Not only that, but she’s super smart and is headed off to college to pursue
a degree in veterinary medicine! Whew! (That’s a lot of school!)

Erin, I had fun planning your session.
We had the perfect warm fall day!
I just love your spirit (and your whole family!).
I know these pictures are going to bring your family smiles
for many years after you head off to college!

Enjoy showing off your senior pictures!

Andrew’s Senior Session {Saint Louis and Columbia Area Senior Photographer}

Andrew’s family has been clients of mine for a long time.
Truly there is no better compliment for a photographer than when clients come back!
Check out their first family session here: 
Check out their daughter’s senior session here:

And now it’s Andrew’s turn.
If you know Andrew, you know there are a few things absolutely true about him:
1. He is kind and helpful, though a bit quiet and shy (until you get to know him).
2. He is proud of his car.
3. He likes to dress up, and he can rock a suit and tie!
4. He’s kind of obsessed with legos. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I’m so glad we were able to work out a session that helped capture his spirit and all the things he loves.
Not only that, but we got to take his pictures on his family’s farm, so they are even more meaningful.
And speaking of family, it was time they had an updated picture so we took some of those too! Why not?! ๐Ÿ™‚

Andrew and Clasquin family, I hope you enjoy the pictures, and I hope they bless you with smiles for years to come!

Welcome, Baby Emmarie! {Saint Louis area Newborn and Family Photographer}

This little cutie just happens to be my newest niece! <3
Melt my heart!!

My whole family headed down to southern MO to meet her.
We learned that my kids get car sick.
Fun.
But even though my day didn’t go quite like we planned,
we managed to get some great shots for little Emmarie’s birth announcements.
I definitely need some more snuggle time with this little wiggle worm though!

Congratulations, Lora and Wade! Emmarie (and her red highlighted hair) is so beautiful! ๐Ÿ˜›
Here’s to a few more hours of sleep for you this week!
