Happy Birthday to Me!

Today is my birthday. Happy Birthday to me. I am not going to get all gooey and tell you how thankful I am for everything and everyone in my life – but actually I am. I just want to say how much I love my family. We are a very close knit family. We love being together. We are supportive of one another. We talk to all the kids almost on a daily basis. Except for Paul who loves to text me. I could not have asked for better daughter-in-laws and my son-in-law – (known as “The Others”). Our children did well when choosing their spouses.

We have 3 amazing and very adorable grandchildren. We have the king – Cameron – who is now 14 – 6′ 2″ drop dead gorgeous, a superb athlete, a great student and one of the nicest kids you will ever meet. We then have the prince – Timothy – who is in 1st grade, a hoot to be around, a shy boy and a kind and endearing child. And then we have the princess – Hadley. Hadley is so adorable and quite the chatter box. In one moment she can be persnickety and the next moment she will melt your heart.

And today would not be complete with out a shout out to my husband John – who is my right hand man – and I never give him enough credit for what he does for me.

So on Sunday we got together to celebrate my birthday. I wanted to take a family photo so we could include our newest daughter-in-law Becky on our wall. I set the camera on a tripod, set the camera on timer and ran back into the picture. But I was always too slow. So my son Timothy and grandson Cameron came to my rescue. And this family portrait will proudly hang on our wall.

MOPPA Print Competition

I am putting myself out there with showing these images before they get judged. Every year I ponder over what images through out the year that I have taken would be worthy to enter into a print competition. It was hard to narrow it down to 6. But after much thought I decided on the following 6 images. I am a believer when entering prints in a competition that they come from a paid session. Every one of these images was purchased by my clients and was photographed this year. One of the rules for print comp is to title the images which I feel is the hardest things to do. But here goes.

1.  Dancing Attic (Shelby Swanner from Columbia High School)

2. Drumming Statesmen (Brian Meyer from Webster Groves High School)

3. Fashion Alley (Alex Lambrecht from Marquette High School)

4. Want a Ride Sally? (Paul Recenielo from Webster Groves High School)

5. Urban Chick (Madison Thorpe from Ursuline Academy)

6. Fountain of Youth (Shea Kreft from O’Fallon Township)

St. Louis Senior photography – Lisa is Back!

This has been a very busy summer. And I feel very guilty for ignoring my Blog. St. Louis Senior Photography is dear to my heart and a very important part of my business. You can always see my work on Facebook.  I am diligent about posting my images for all of our  senior clients.

But I did want to share a few of my favorites from this very busy summer.  I am going to start with Gabby Bernier from Ursuline Academy.  Gabby is a volleyball player at Ursuline.  I love incorporating something from an athlete in their photos.  Gabby came to her session with some very cool outfits.  I loves her accessories that always add to the final image.  And of course she came with a great personality.
