Keep Wild Photo Adventures Going!
Combining my love for the outdoors, animal life and photography, Wild Photo Adventures is hands-down my favorite television program. WPA has announced their Kickstarter campaign to raise funding for their 5th season. I just pledged and I hope enough fans of the show will pledge as well! Best of luck to WPA and Doug Gardner.

A few days ago, this little guy was found shivering in a corner at the doorstep of my boyfriend’s father’s company in Downtown STL. At first he thought the kitten was dead.
The weather has been very cold lately, and this kitten needed help immediately.
He brought the kitten inside into his office where we are all now taking turns nursing him back to health. We are not sure of its age, but we are guessing he is in the 4-5 week range. He was so timid at first – so afraid of anything that he hid behind a desk and hissed if we tried to come near him. But after a little coaxing we were able to gain his trust and he came out of hiding.
He was (and still is) frail and very bony. After a much needed warm bath (to which he loudly protested), we fed him kitten formula from a 3Ml pipette. He loved it and soon had a full belly.
After his vet check-up tomorrow, we’ll have to decide what to do. Over the next few weeks, it will be a family effort to get this guy healthy, socialized, litter-box trained and then, adoptable. ♥
Good luck to the Saint Louis Cardinals!
I usually give my clients a little homework before a session. I ask that they spend a little time preparing for their shoot by researching and practicing poses. Kelly ACED her homework! She studied poses, practiced in front of a mirror and even saved a few favorite posing ideas to her phone as a point of reference during her shoot. Her hard work paid off – we had an amazing session that yielded some of my favorite portraits…ever! I still have a ton of editing to do…but so far I am totally pleased. I hope she loves the results.
It has been a busy past few months. I vacationed in Laguna Beach (to celebrate a friend’s wedding) back in early September and I STILL have not finished editing our pictures. Here are a few that I’ve edited so far.
I think we’ll be planning a return trip! Laguna Beach was not only beautiful – but friendly! We received great hospitality everywhere we ventured. We really enjoyed the beaches, the food, the lodging…it was a perfect, blissful trip.

I have known Tara since my college days, where I worked as a work-study student in my university’s financial aid department. Years later, Tara contacted me to capture her engagement and wedding pictures. They even included their awesome dog, Truman!
The weather was absolutely perfect for this shoot. Great temps, beautiful light, no wind…I couldn’t ask for better settings. I am looking so forward to capturing their wedding day!
What a busy month it has been! I am just now posting a few images from a recent family session. The Baumbach Family woke up early on a chilly Sunday morning to have their family photos taken. We added a few senior photos to this shoot as well. Many thanks to this fun family!
