Such love for a little wee little one, such joy!

Children are such a gift even when some don’t stand still.

Johnson family of five…What a joy to take their portraits!

Had an amazing time capturing the beauty of “The Johnson Five”!!!  They all sing too!!  A family that worships the Lord instead of worshiping popular society. I’m so incredibly PROUD of you all and glad to know you!!!

Sons are such “gentlemen” as well!! They actually held doors open for me!

These portraits were taken in St. Charles City.

 “Oh Theresa! These pics are AMAZING!!!WOW!! I’m speechless! Thank you so very very much :)”
-Bethany J, O’Fallon, MO

“Our picture session with Theresa was great. She was very professional and kind. Her poses were amazing and she made sure to ask if we had any in mind we wanted to do also. The pictures turned out beautifully and it shows how much she enjoys her work.”     -Terri Keller

“It was a great experience-we weren’t sure what to expect,
but are thrilled with our pictures!” -Jane C

The Leblanc’s are such a fun family. They even laugh at themselves! Thats the way to be!

With the Hylen’s, it was getting dark very soon, so we had to do the photos lickity split! And, of course I was sure to use a flash!

“We were not quite sure how our family portraits were going to turn out, since we were shooting outside on a cold December day. We were short on time and daylight. When Theresa sent us the proofs we were pleasantly surprised with the number of good portraits to choose from. Theresa also did a wonderful job editing as well ! Thanks Theresa for helping us capture our precious family memories!”  -Carolyn H, Kentucky

“Thanks for taking our pictures. They are great. Awesome. Love them. Thanks so much”
-Nan F, St. Louis, MO

Was so much fun taking pics of the Jamesons! I was privileged to take photos of them 5 years ago and now to take pics this year too! Look at bottom of this page and see if you find them!  

Never a dull moment in a family of five! Celebrating the gift of family! Yay!!!  (Main Street St Charles)

Show’n off the vintage truck and the family too! Patrick and Colleen are enjoying Carter’s last year in high school before it all changes. Eeek!  An absolutely lovely day to be outside too…first day of Autumn, first day (in a great while) of cool weather (Thank You, Lord!)!

Wow, four children and lov’n it!

This family is soo cooperative! How fun taking photos of so many girls! So proud of the Dad who has patience with all of us! Mother’s Day present to Mom.

Families are fun to photograph,

and sometimes a challenge.

Children, parents, even pets,
its a mix thats always exciting!

At times there can be some in the group that aren’t
so “happy happy happy” about getting their photo taken.
But we manage to overcome those challenging moments with
a little empathy, humor and lightness.
Family is a good thing and I aim to record the beautiful persona
of all involved.
Family is a gift. In spite of all the craziness, Lets treasure it!

PS- Please give me an idea of what your vision is for your photo session. Thank you!
