All Together!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I’m thrilled to finally be sharing this family session from Christmas Eve! I’ve been having some hard drive issues, but everything has been resolved, which means we’re back to regularly blogging on Tuesdays!

Cheryl and I met in 2017 through a networking group. We’ve kept in touch, and when she reached out about having her family all together for Christmas and wanting to capture it, I was more than happy to help! Not only were Cheryl and Wayne’s children all in town (including one who came from Saudi Arabia!), but her daughter, Mary, had her in-laws in town all the way from Germany! It was great getting to work with this big family, and I’m happy to say they absolutely loved their images! Check them out below!

Like Father, Like Son | Branson Boys

Good evening, friends!

Katie here, and tonight I’m sharing some images from the Branson men’s photo session. Adam and I work at for the same automotive group and he wanted to do a session with his son. We took these back in October as a Christmas present for Adam’s mom, so we didn’t want to share any of them before and ruin the surprise.

We met at Lake Jacomo and had a lot of fun! Clark is one of the funniest little boys and was so much fun to work with! There were lots of smiles, giggles and of course funny faces. I hope you enjoy a sneak peek into this session this evening!

Bianculli Family!

Hello everyone, and welcome to our first blog post of 2019! It’s Liana, and I am so excited to be sharing this beautiful family with you all! All seven of them were troopers, and met me on Main Street in old town St. Charles at 8am, three days before Christmas! Needless to say, the weather was less than perfect, but it didn’t get their spirits down!

Courtney contacted me through Facebook, wanting to book a family session as a gift for her mom. Originally set to be eight people (family + significant others), Zach’s girlfriend Carrie unfortunately couldn’t make it, but he did bring his dog, Zeus! Seven humans and two dogs in total makes for a hilarious photo shoot! Thank goodness I still had dog bags in my pocket from leaving the house haha. We had a great time wandering around Main Street, and the Christmas decorations were the perfect touch! Check out the photos below <3

Cady & Jordan | Summertime Love

Hello everyone! Liana here; it's been a busy week since I've gotten back home! We have two more weddings this year, so we are working on finalizing those and meeting with our brides to ensure the process is super easy for them! We're also working on becoming present on WeddingWire and TheKnot, so make sure to keep an eye out for those announcements! The best part about last week though, was being able to photograph Cady and Jordan! 

Cady and I met while working at InterState Studios, and I just love her. She's the cutest little thing, earning her the nickname "Lil' Biscuit". She is so sweet and down to Earth, and so is Jordan! They are an absolutely adorable couple, and have been together since college! I'm so glad I decided to come home early from Arizona, mainly because now I have the opportunity to photograph some events coming up!

Cady, Jordan and I met up at Creve Coeur Lake, which is one of my favorite spots for running, but I've never taken photos there! We were blessed with some cloud coverage and lower humidity, which made our session so much better! Cady and Jordan are great to work with, and I barely had to help with posing; once they got into a pose, they made it into their own! I can't wait to see these images up on their walls <3

Sean & Cassie | Maternity

Good evening, everyone! 

Katie here, and tonight I'm sharing more images from Sean & Cassie's Maternity session you saw a couple weeks ago. Sean is actually my husband, Beau's, cousin and we were SO excited when we found out him and his wife, Cassie, were expecting! Now our little ones will grow up together and we'll be able to share a lot experiences together- especially since they're only 8 1/2 months apart!

For this session, we went to one of my favorite locations- Burr Oaks Woods Nature Center. It was late June, so the heat was in full swing. Even though it was hot, Cassie was a trooper and she definitely had that pregnancy glow!

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, this sweet little baby made his arrival in early July- and he is so loved! You can't help but love those sweet, chunky cheeks of his... he's already a heartbreaker!

I hope you enjoy seeing the rest of this adorable session!

Braundmeier Summer Session!

Hello everyone! Liana here, and I am SO ready to be sharing this session with you all! We posted the sneak peek a few weeks back, but since we've had so many sessions taking place, we're just now getting to posting the full session! Even though it rained on the day of our session, we were able to find a break in between the clouds and grab some wonderful family photos! Check them out <3

Corson Maternity | Sneak Peek!

Good evening, everyone!

Katie here, and tonight I'm sharing some images from the Corson Family Maternity session! This session happened a few weeks ago, and (spoiler alert!) little baby Gunner his arrival shortly after and is as cute as can be! Sean is actually my husband's cousin, and we were so excited when we found out Sean and Cassie were expecting. Now our kiddos will get to grow up together! We went out to one of my favorite places- Burr Oaks at sunset and captured some beautiful images.

I hope you enjoy this sneak peek, and be on the look out for the full blog post coming soon!

Christmas Family Photos!

Hello everyone! As usual, it's Liana here, wrapping up the last of our December sessions! This one is near and dear to my heart, as it's my own family! My mom and I always visit her mom, my grandma, for Christmas, and our whole family gets together to celebrate. Thankfully we're a smaller family, with the gathering being no more than 9 people, and we're all adults at this point! 

This year, my grandma asked if I could take some family photos for her, to update the ones she has. Knowing it would be an easy task, I said yes, and it only took about 30 minutes! We started upstairs in the parlor for the smaller group photos, then moved downstairs to the living room for the family photo! Check them out below!

Jamie & Luna!

Hello everyone! Liana here, letting you know that we are almost all caught up with our sessions from December! The week before Christmas, we were blessed with some gorgeous weather, especially for Missouri. Who could resist being outside when it's in the 60's, am I right? No one, of course! Everyone took full advantage of the beautiful weather, and who could blame them! When Jamie, a great friend I made through my Women's Power Networking chapter, approached me about taking photos of her and her 13 year old dog, Luna, I couldn't have said yes fast enough! Anyone who knows me, knows that I love dogs, and getting to photograph them is even better! On Jamie's birthday, we met up at Vlasis Park in Ballwin, and set out to have some fun in the sun! Even though Luna is mostly blind, she gets around just fine with the help of her mama! We all had a great time, and the best part is that Jamie will have these photos to cherish for a lifetime <3 

Flickinger Family Christmas!

Hello! It's Tuesday, one of my favorite days of the week! I have come to love blog day, and I'm always excited to share new photos with all of you! This week we're still catching up on December sessions, but this particular session is of a family that everyone knows by now; Katie, her husband Beau, and their beautiful daughter, Ember! 

The second weekend of December, I drove out to Montgomery, MO, where Katie's parents live. They were in town for family Christmas, and wanted to get some family photos done before Christmas came around! I couldn't pass up a chance to see my best friend and my little neice! (And Beau, I suppose!) We did manage to get a few quick photos outsides before the wind drove us in, but we also got some great indoor photos as well! Ember loved the Christmas tree, and was giving some great expressions!
