5 Moments – July 2017

Each month, I look back in reflection on my favorite moments, captures or days. This, in a nutshell, is what I love about photography; documenting the little things. It also provides a glimpse into the past to provoke emotions, share memories and tell stories.

1.Ballpark Village

This may seem very ambiguous but I’ll share it anyway. I was approached by a company to take photos of Ballpark Village in downtown STL for a reason.. see what I mean? While I am unable to share the details, I wanted to share the experience because it was different than what I get typically to photograph. And the best part was that I got have a special assistant join me for the evening.. my hubs! We walked around, snapped photos, talked strategy, laughed and thoroughly enjoyed our evening together.

2. We went to Vegas!

Mom and dad snuck away for a quick weekend while the girls had their first sleepover with nana since she moved to town. My goal list included- eat at as many restaurants as possible, take a nap whenever I wanted to, wander and of course, enjoy some time with hubs. I am pleased to say that I was successful in all of my ventures.

3. Peach Picking

I know, I already wrote a post about this one. But, it was such a great time I had to share it as one of my favorite moments. There is something about sweaty little babes with bright red faces pickin’ fresh peaches off a tree and devouring immediately that just makes my heart sing.

4. Hanging with this crazy bunch

I had a great time working with this team on creating fun marketing materials in our natural light studio in Chesterfield. As you can tell from the photo, they are a lively bunch! I don’t often get to step out of the family photography world but when I do, I enjoy it very much!

5. Early Mornings

I am not a huge fan of early mornings full of steamy humidity. However, when the moisture levels drop just enough to provide a little bit of crisp morning air, our back deck is where you will find me. When I’m lucky enough, the entire crew will join me with sleepy eyes while we soak in the beauty of the early stillness. Moments like these…

Hi, I'm Emily. I'm a St. Louis Family and Lifestyle Photographer and this is my blog!  

As a busy mother of 2, I know how quickly time can slip through your fingers. Being able to take the most simple and precious moments in my daughters’ lives and turn them into art that our family can admire forever has been a wonderful experience. The best part about it? I can do the same for you.
