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!

Wade and Lora are Getting Married! {Saint Louis Engagement Photographer}

It’s hard to believe that in just 11 short days my baby sister is getting married!
Her future hubby is a farmer in Southern Missouri,
and in preparation for their wedding, we took a trip down to his hometown
to get some pictures to use for their guest book and wedding decorations.
They are decorating with wheat and lavender, so it’s a perfect fit!
What was NOT perfect, though, was the weather the day of our session.
Sheesh! We were dodging rain all day…
But as a bonus, we got a picture with a rainbow, and we did fit the session in,
so it all worked out in the end. šŸ™‚

Lora and Wade, I can’t wait to help you celebrate your big day!
Enjoy showing off your images!
Love you both to pieces!!

Annie’s Senior Session {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

Annie and her mom scouted out these beautiful locations
in the Central West End and Forest Park for her session.
The season was perfect for all the beautiful
blooming treesĀ and fresh spring flowers!

Annie, enjoy the few weeks you have left before graduation.
I pray God’s blessings to you as you head south for college next fall
and listen for His direction in your life.
Enjoy showing off your beautiful senior pictures!

Jillian’s Senior Session {Saint Louis Senior Photographer}

One of the things I love most about my job
is capturing the very essenceĀ of people
and helping to see how beautiful and lovely they really are.

My sessions with Jillian were so much fun because she and her mom
already had so much vision for their session
to help capture this time in Jillian’s life
where she still feels as playful as a child
but is realizing that her body is revealing the truth
that she has grown into a beautiful woman.

So for the first session, we played in the snow,
which was Jillian’s perfect birthday gift
because we had been waiting all winter for a big enough snow day
to get pictures of this winter baby!
For the next session we headed indoors to capture
some of her other loves.
I think the pictures are pretty self-explanatory! ; )

Jillian, thank you for trusting me to capture this part of your story.
It was a joy to work with you, to laugh with you,
and to watch you realizeĀ that you are beautiful on the outside too.
“Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears theĀ LordĀ is to be praised.” Pr 31:30

Andrew & Kelly are Getting Married! {Saint Louis Engagement and Wedding Photographer}

I first met Andrew and Kelly while I was shooting my very first solo wedding,
where Andrew was in the wedding party.
I have vivid memories of a YMCA dance by the boys that involved costumes… ; )
So many thanks to Matt and Julie for this referral!

I am absolutely thrilled to get to be a part of Andrew and Kelly’s big day next May.
Kelly is just one of the sweetest people I think I’ve ever met,
and comes from a family of incredibly awesome people as well!

Andrew and Kelly, I hope you feel one step closer to your wedding day
and more relaxed in front of the camera. : )
Enjoy showing off your beautiful pictures to friends and family!
