Emily’s Senior Session {Columbia and Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

I can never say enough how awesome it is when clients come back. Best. Compliment. Ever. : ) I first met Emily’s family for a family mini-session in 2011, then I got to see them again for Emily’s brother’s senior session in 2012. Fast forward a few years and it’s Emily’s turn! We had the...

    • Sue WanningerMay 23, 2012 - 4:09 pm


      Did you check out her family shots? Might be a great idea for you and your family. Senior pics are not that far off for you girlie! Don’t know how our kids keep getting older and passing these milestones! But luckily, photos help us remember how wonderful they are!ReplyCancel

Jacob’s Senior Session {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

I have had the privilege of knowing Jacob through my church. Last year we got to jam together at our church’s confirmation retreat. He is seriously one of the most kind-hearted young men I’ve ever met. It was an honor to be able to take his senior pictures for him… I had been dreaming up...

Annalies’ Senior Preview {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

Annalies is my son’s Sunday School Teacher. I was thrilled to have the chance to shoot her senior session! She is a gorgeous girl with a bit of a wild side. Would you ever guess she’d be the kind of girl to have a pet snake? Me either! And boy did Miss Olive bring us...

  • Beth HollanderOctober 16, 2010 - 10:20 am

    The photos are great. I love the different places that Annalies was photographed. Annalies is pretty. We had Cameron’s senior pictures taken last summer. It is hard to pick the best. I did not realize that Annalies and Cameron are the same age. Isn’t college hunting fun!ReplyCancel

    It is so hard to pic a favorite . . . when you have the best photographer and a gorgeous model as the “subject”, they’re all fabulous. If I had to pick, I love the colored pic of Annalies laying on her stomach leaning on her hand. These pics could be in VOGUE magazine!ReplyCancel

  • Dana FrenzelOctober 25, 2010 - 11:28 am

    ABSOLUTELY FAB -U – LOUS !!!!!!!!!!! What a unique and artistic form of expression!! (Fits with the WILD side) : ) The model is quite exquisite with a familiar look to her eyes. Hmmm…. And…….. Who was her make – up artist? ……….Her skin is flawless with a hint of color in all the right places…. Watch out for those boys mom : ). Have a great Senior year!!!! Everyday Matters!!! Measure not the Milestones……….. but The Moments!!! DanaReplyCancel

  • Patty MooreOctober 25, 2010 - 11:38 am
