The Longest Sneak Peek Yet

My sister-in-law has been waiting oh-so-patiently, yet oh-so-anxiously, for me to give her a little glimpse of the pictures from their photo shoot on Saturday. I was so mean I wouldn't even let her flip through the images on the back of the camera. Nope, she had to wait for the finished product. And she didn't even complain.

So in reward for her patience, she gets the longest sneak peek ever!

Oh...and to reward Jon for getting pooped on by a pigeon?!

We started at the Arch Grounds and worked our way down the Riverfront, the Landing, and then to City Garden. So that's the other reason this will be long...I have a lot of pictures with a lot of variety.

This is SO Jamie! :)

Leaf fight!!

And this would be the site of the pigeon pooping...actually this after the incident, but it was under that bridge. Can you believe how many photos Jon was in AFTER being pooped on?!

Nope...this was not planned or posed! They just happened to randomly make faces at one another.

This one is taken through the sculpture shown above.

Can you believe this is in the middle of downtown? Check out Citygarden sometime if you've never been there...

love their smiles on this one!

Hope you liked them!

Can you tell we had fun tonight?

I've shot quite a few seniors this year, but Annie is my first one here in St. Louis! Annie and I went to the same church growing up and I still picture her as the adorable girl running around with a bowl cut! But she is all grown up now :)

We ended up shooting Annie's pictures in her backyard because of the imminent rain, thinking it would be nice to have a place to run into if it did start pouring. Well, we got about half of our shoot in before the rain started. And then we busted out the umbrellas! Annie was such a great sport about having her photos taken in the rain. Hope you like these!!

Love this jump!

Beautiful leaves in their backyard!

on Annie's senior pictures! We did the second half of this shoot in the rain!!


I'm thinking about offering slideshow to clients. Here's just a 30 second sample. What do you think?

Today was the first time that someone was pooped on during a session.

I take that back. Today was the first time someone was pooped on during a session that was not a newborn session.

Dumb pigeon. Sorry, Jon.

I'll be back later with many more!

I'm not sure how it's possible to have a baby a little over two months ago and have already forgotten how tiny they are at the beginning! I have a feeling this little guy will be a tough one, being the third of three boys. My favorite of these photos are the ones in the leaves, so Katie, thanks for trusting me to put your newborn in a pile of leaves. Check out these was worth it, right?! Hope you like them!
