Stephen 6 days news | st. louis newborn photography

I have no words for how much I love this family.

Josh and I have known each other since we were 18.
EIGHTEEN!!! (I can barely even do the complex math required to calculate how long that’s been).
Hundreds of memories and a gaggle of kids later, I still have the privilege of calling him my friend…and at the top of a very long list of things I appreciate and admire about him is the wife he chose. From the moment I met Hannah, I hoped we’d be friends for the long-haul, and I’m so thankful it’s turned out that way. This sweet family of five could not be more near-and-dear to our hearts and it was truly an honor to capture this special time in their lives.
Oh to be born with a built in fan club (…hopefully it will make up for the whole “3 moms” thing this little guy will endure for the rest of his life ๐Ÿ™‚ ).
absomalutely LOVE these pictures.
This little guy got the best of the best in the daddy department and will undoubtedly grow up knowing that the manliest men are kind hearted, full of integrity, hard-working and adventurous!
…and Ohhhhhh, will he be loved by his beautiful mama (no one should get to look this good one week after having a baby!!!).
He’s simply perfect in every way.
Dear baby Stephen: I hope you grow up to be strong and adventurous like your daddy…kind and loyal like your mama…and at least half as cute as your big sisters! Welcome to the world little buddy.

Ryker | saint louis newborn photography

wow…is it April already…and is it possible that the last time I blogged was announcing Santa sessions???


No better way to get back on the blogging saddle than with a perfect little newbie…

meet Ryker…

His daddy is a surgeon and it looks like they’re starting him young on the same path ๐Ÿ˜‰
You wouldn’t know it by the pics, but an hour into this photo shoot, we didn’t have much to show for it…annnnnnnnnddd then he got the memo about being the perfect, moldable baby model ๐Ÿ™‚
Dear Ryker: I hope you slept the day away once we left you alone…you were a champion baby model, but I’m pretty sure these “outtakes” show how you really felt about this whole deal…
