Some Recent Photos: Holmes and Nelsons...

April is my former roommate, the one I posted bridal photos of last month. They were married in the St. Louis Temple and had their reception in St. Louis as well. Between the wedding and the reception, they made time for us to meet in Forest Park and take some more photos of just the two of them. I LOVE when brides and grooms schedule this-- so much more freedom and control over the quality of pictures they get! They were fun to work with, too-- endless smiles!

Isn't it romantic?

After the Park, we drove to the "photo op" spot of Saint Louis in a downtown plaza, where you can see the arch and the old courthouse behind them.
And the Nelsons are Joe's cousins from Salt Lake City-- We got to hang out with them and take their family photos while we were in Utah this July. Aren't these blonde boys so CUTE?

They wanted "feet" pictures... I love the contrast in size, and how the littlest one is falling over in the second one!

And see how delighted the youngest kid is in the stairs pic? That's 'cause Grandpa is standing behind me, playing peek-a-boo with him. It got the whole family laughing!

Okay, that's all folks! Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the pics. Want to come to Vegas and take my family photos? I wish. Thanks for sharing.

  2. I really do love the park bench one... the framing is really nice. I'm sure they loved these, they're all beautiful!

  3. Gorgeous photos! I really need you to teach me how to take good pictures
