I just love the B. family!  First their wedding, then their first baby, and now I got to meet his little brother, Baby A.  What a cutie!

I first met the S. family three years ago, when G. was born.  Now he’s a big kid, and I’ve gotten to watch him and his brother grow!  🙂

Baby A. wasn’t too interested in the cake.  Until they gave her … A SPOON!  It’s never too early to start practicing good table manners, after all.  😉

She has such a sweet smile!

It was good to see you guys again, and happy birthday, Baby A.!  🙂

I got to meet them last week, and I was super impressed with how laid-back these little guys were.  And they were even sporting some brand-new teeth!

Family Photography: The C. Family

My recent photo session with the C. family was bittersweet:  they are going to be moving away soon!  😦

I first met them a couple of years ago, and every time I’ve gotten to photograph them, I have always had fun.  They are such a great family!

Since they are going to be leaving the area, they wanted their last photo session to be a “farewell to St. Louis” session.  So we headed downtown!

Sometimes, my favorite shots are the ones that happen after they think they are finished with the pictures.  So much fun!
