Family Session: The Mitchell Family

27 Oct

“The Cardinals are playing.”

“Really, mom?  Pictures.  Will it take long?”

These are just a few of the things Jake and Sam were concerned about before we started the family photos.

“Don’t worry.  I promise to make this quick and painless.  Why, I bet you even have fun before we’re done!”  I told the boys.

They exchanged an I-don’t-think-that-is-possible look that only brothers ages 7 and 6 can give without words and completely understand.

We had fun.  They had fun. Just look at the pictures.  These boys are handsome.  The family, so lovely.

By the way, I’m convinced that if I bottled Sam and Jake’s energy and sold it, it would annihilate both Red Bull AND 5-Hour energy!

Family Session: The Kuntz Family

21 Oct

“Do you always bring furniture to a photo session?”  Dave asked.  I hesitantly said, “Well, yeah.  I do,” praying he wasn’t dreading schlepping all of it around with us…or at least helping!  “That’s awesome!” he said.  I exhaled a sigh of relief.

Danielle, a fitness trainer by trade, and Dave, a pastor, are two of the kindest (and fittest!) people I know.  Joy radiates from both of them.  They’re loved by all who know them.  Christ’s love moves them to love one another, their family, and even strangers at a depth that is rarely found in individuals today.  It’s awe-inspiring.  It’s refreshing.

I was so blessed to get to capture your adorable family and loved chasing the kids around.  They have so much life and spirit in them.  Life, energy, joy, and spirit are words that come to mind as I think about their shining personalities. May these photos bring you joy at this moment and precious memories in the years to come.

And, if you happen to be looking for a church in the St. Louis area, you should really check out North Church!

The Hurayt Babes

15 Jun

I was so shocked and excited when I received an inquiry for a sibling session from a girl that I knew in high school.  You know the phrase “pretty and popular” and “oh so extremely nice” ?  Yeah?  Well, that completely applies to her (and her twin, who looks just like her).  Needless to say, I was over-the-moon excited to do some outdoorsy newborn baby pics with his sister.

And you know what?  These kids are just as sweet and beautiful as their mama.  There were sooooo many good ones.  I wanted to share them all, but decided on these few.  Take a look…
