There are benefits to being with a Realtor. Gary’s company owns this 1910’s house in the neighborhood that has been boarded up for the past 30 years. Now that his company owns it, they are restoring it to it’s former glory, but I was granted permission to take photos before they started the restoration this week.

This first shot makes me SWOON. Total puffy-heart love it …as a photographer, but mostly as his Mom. I used my own textures on the images to give them an extra something, fun fun!

As stated in the post before this, I was recently in St. Louis co-teaching the Soul Sistas Workshop with my good friend Michelle Huesgen. Had a blast photographing her two kiddos on a private farm near Michelle. One down side was a heat wave decided to come on through during my stay and it was sooo hot and especially humid. When we did this shoot there was a heat index (at 7pm mind you) of 115 degrees. In beginning our shoot Michelle and I both swore we wouldn’t judge one another for how we smelled or looked. *Snort*

I love this capture of Michelle. Now this is a shot of a child photographer / mom in action. Her boy in the background and her daughter Stella watching on the sidelines.

If you are in the St. Louis area and looking for a child & senior photographer, I highly recomend Michelle! View Michelle’s website

Okay, now onto my images of Miss Stella …. here I’m playing around with some new techniques and pushing the boundaries of what I normally do.
