I was asked by the band director from O’Fallon Township High School to donate my time to take photos for their 4th Annual Evening of Dinner and Live Jazz. This auction will be benefiting the O’Fallon Township High School band programs. The evening will be featuring a local Jazz musician Dawn Weber and Joe Metzka a teacher at O’Fallon Township. This is a very worthy cause with thousands of dollars raised to promote this talented group of high school students and the band program.
Check out their web site at www.othbands.com
Here are the 2 posters that are being used to promote the auction.
This is Shea Kreft who was a Class of 2013 spokesMODEL for us. She is a super young woman and extremely talented.
The next poster is of Dawn Weber and Joe Metzker. Two very talented musicians.Read More »
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.Read More »
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.
This is our last Senior Photos St. Louis special. And it will not get any better than this sale. You can SAVE $47.50 on a 1 hour Garden Session. Regularly it is $95.

Yes, I have been nudged back into wedding photography. I photographed Jessie and Ian’s wedding on a 107 degree day last Saturday. Jessie and Ian were terrific and the heat really was not that bad. My son Timothy was the second shooter on this amazing wedding day and was so much fun to be with. Jessie and Ian’s St. Louis wedding photography was a fun filled day.
I started at the Chase with Jessie getting ready and Timothy went to the Pedroli household to capture Ian getting ready. We then went to the Basilica for a beautiful ceremony and then to Villa Duschene (Jessie’s high school) for fun photos. Jessie and Ian wanted some photos at the Arch – so we quickly took some photos in the 107 degree heat. And then back to the Chase for a beautiful and fun reception.
Redbird was the surprise guest of the evening. He stayed and entertained the guests. I have never seen so many cameras at one event.
The evening ended beautifully with a few last shots.
Flowers – Bloomin Buckets
Cake – Sweet Peas
I am back in the saddle photographing weddings. I had retired from wedding photography but circumstances in our business now have me me back into St. Louis Wedding Photography. I was a bit apprehensive about photographing Melissa and Mike’s wedding. But they are so nice I felt at ease immediately. It actually felt great to be back in the wedding photography world.
We started out at their church Canaan Baptist Church for a beautiful ceremony and then for fun photos down at the St. Louis arch. And while we were downtown we swung by Busch Stadium. We ended the day at The Falls in Columbia, Illinois.
Here is a sneak peek of a few of my favorite images.
I have found that our studio attic is a favorite locations amongst our seniors to be photographed. Shelby Swanner from Seckman came to the studio to help me out with some dance photos. Shelby has been dancing her whole life and is quite accomplished. I love doing something different with our St. Louis Senior Portraits.
Here is the last group of our stage 1 high school senior spokesMODELS. These amazing 32 current juniors are shouting out about our St. Louis Senior Photography. I can’t say enough how terrific this group is.
