Watching dear friends transition through the various stages of life is so meaningful. But getting to document each of those stages is an even greater privilege! I've known Madi and Sean since our days together at Helias High School. I've now photographed their engagement session, their wedding day, and now some sweet moments before their firstborn son arrives. Such huge milestones for this couple and I'm extremely grateful to have played a small role in their lives up to this point. I honestly cannot wait for more opportunities to photograph their growing family through the upcoming years.
I love that they love me for me, they respect my craft, and they always trust my vision. For their maternity session in downtown St. Louis, I suggested none other than Forest Park close to the Jewel Box. Knowing the weather that weekend would be less than ideal, I trusted the gorgeous landscape and architecture of the Jewel Box. The fall trees popped against our moody sky and Madi radiated in her sage green maternity dress again the subtleness of autumn. The Midwest can truly be stunning even when it seems dreary outside. Finding the right photographer who can see the beauty in all things is key when wanting a successful session!
Congrats to Madi and Sean on your little bundle of joy. Hope to see you all again soon!
