Baby Sam {St. Louis Newborn Photographer}

This wee one belongs to my sweet friend Stef. She has the audacity to live in WISCONSIN instead of next door to me, so she asked if I would ever consider traveling to her for her newborn session.

Only a 6 hour drive? A chance to snuggle this bundle of newness and shoot the heck outta his photos with no time constraints?

Sign me up!

So I got to travel to WI (alone! A SOLO road trip! MY OWN MUSIC!) at the end of April, car FULL of photography equipment and props... and I got to spend a lovely few days with Stef and Co. The photos were just a bonus. Truly, it was just lovely to be with my dear fiend for a little while. LOVE seeing her be a mama to a newborn...Since we have sons the same EXACT age (same birthday!) I only ever see her with a kid like mine. So watching her get extra tender with the teeny one was special. And this teeny one IS special. Meet Sam:

  2. I never tire of looking at these photos over and over. I've been wearing the internet thin between my house and your website as I play the slideshow on repeat so I can get my daily fix.

    When the little ones are so small, it's hard to know their personalities or the quirks that you are going to grow to love in the weeks to come....Sam is 6 weeks now, and looking back at these, you've capture those intricacies PERFECTLY. The love on his big brother's face, the silly expressions on Sam's....

    Thank you so much for capturing these memories for my family. They are SO much more than just photos...they are windows into our LIFE.
