Chrissy & Jonathan Married!

What an amazing and fun day we had for Chrissy and Jonathan's wedding ceremony at St. Louis Cathedral and Reception at the Presbytere. Chrissy was getting ready at the Westin on the river so getting makeup done downstairs at Saks Bobbi Brown counter was very easy and they did a great job!  After getting in the dress it was into a Carriage for the ride to Jackson Square / Cathedral for the ceremony... Although there were some clouds in the morning we got a clearing just at the right time and a beautiful blue sky! It was so wonderful to see the light coming in through the windows during the ceremony, just perfect! Some couples just have such a relaxed feeling while the day is moving along and this is the case with Chrissy & Jonathan for sure, they are a great match and both have a laid back type of personality. I really can say the day was so smooth and things could not have gone better for everyone! Thank you for the great experience and I hope you enjoy looking through a few of my favorite images. Thanks also to my second shooter Eddie M. for some awesome images and a fun time during the day:) Could not have done it without you. Congratulations to the happy couple!!!

As the fall season arrives it seems that mommies are welcoming new little bundles of joy all over the place! I have always felt this season is very busy with newborn sessions, in my family we have tons of fall birthdays, and this year is no different. For the first entry this week I am starting out with some adorable photos of baby Desmond Garcia Foster, who is very close to my heart. My good friend Maureen and husband Michael have been anxiously waiting to add this little one to the family and couldn't be happier with the whole experience. I only wish they lived closer so I could come over and spoil the heck out of him more often, he is a perfectly adorable little guy! To have the opportunity to capture him in these first few weeks makes my heart so happy, hopefully everyone will enjoy the photos for many years to come!

Sweet Baby Bernard - Newborn Home study session

During the time I have been photographing baby's & newborn sessions it has been clear to me that coming to a clients home where all are comfortable works very well. It seems Mother and baby are more relaxed and have a better experience with the whole thing in general, or so new Mommy's keep telling me :)
As a new Mom, there is enough to worry about, adding the stress of getting those precious "new baby" images should not be one of them (including packing up baby and every item that may be needed for a photo session in a strange place, the car ride, the feeding, getting baby ready for pictures... you get the idea) I have been there, I know!

Here are the precious images we captured during baby Bernard's home session ( love the one of Mommy, baby and dog... so Cute! ) He was a dream to photograph and Stacey was very excited to see how it all turned out -

Kate & Cory Married!!!

I am so excited to be posting these images from Kate and Cory's wedding on June 22nd! On the day of the wedding they had me come to The Saint on Canal St. where the bridal party and family were getting ready and staying for the weekend of events. The feeling was busy and happy when I arrived to capture the prep shots. This hotel is so beautiful and modern, they have just opened recently and it was nice to be able to get inside for a glimpse. Kate is a big fan of exposed brick so these rooms were perfect for her and some of the detail shots. In the lobby there is an awesome pool table and chandelier just begging to be photographed, and of course a perfect choice for the portraits of the groom and his guys. After the girls got all dolled up and were ready for some fun portraits around the French Quarter, we headed outside for a quick walk around the block. What a fun time! We found some perfect spots and got lucky enough to hop on a street car too :) Then it was time to head to St. Joseph Catholic Church for the ceremony and then downtown to the Federal Ballroom for a fun and exciting reception. It was such an amazing experience, Kate and Cory had a blast hanging out with all the friends and family, and each other. Congratulations and I hope you enjoy this teaser of favorite images from the day!
