True Love

Allie and Brett were married on October 11, 2008 at her parents' home. I cannot tell you how beautiful it was! Everything was perfect down to the very last detail. Even though there were many friends and family members there, Brett looked at Allie as if she were the only person that existed that day. She was a stunning bride and so much fun to work with. These two were fabulous together. Enjoy your sneak peek.

Breast Cancer Awareness Month

Many of you have seen the photos on the cover and within the October SHE magazine. I was thrilled to do this for SHE magazine and just loved working with Julie Metzger who has had breast cancer. Julie was such a warm peaceful spirit and I just admire her strength. Julie thank you for allowing me to photograph you for the magazine. It was a pleasure and an honor. For those of you who wanted to view the parade photos they're still online. Their password is "survivor". Those will be up throughout the month of October. Let's all take time out this month to do our part to stand up to cancer and know that together we can fight to find a cure.

A Fun Family Session

These are my forever friends, Gina and Sean from St. Louis. We met when we were living in St. Louis and have remained close. They are one of the most amazingly sweet and fun families I have ever had the chance to get to know. Their kids are not only polite and adorable, they are also super duper smart! Guys thanks for coming to see me and for making my life a little brighter because of who you are. I adore you.
