Lola Pinkston 10.3.17 http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/11/lola-pinkston-10-3-17 We usually try to write up a little something about each of these sessions, but we felt this new mom said it best.

Amber (mom): "Joel wanted everything to be normal and comfortable with the least amount of posing. I was exhausted because I generally get 4-5 hours of interrupted sleep at night with Lola, but I still wanted photos that captured us at our best. Lola was her normal chill self. As long as she was fed and tummy time didn't take too long, she was happy. Franklin was excited someone new was there to give him attention. He's not so sure about what the baby means to him yet, but as long as he is also getting love, he is happy. We went through what a good day would be with Jenna in tow (tummy time, breastfeeding, playing together on the bed, porch time, a walk) and I think the pictures really captured how happy those moments make us in between all the exhaustion of having a newborn."

Whealon Family 10.20.17 http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/11/whealon-family-10-20-17 For this session we wandered around the Grove Neighborhood in St. Louis, had a mini-dance party & then stopped for a game of Candyland! Mom leaves us with this advice: "Jenna is a pro! Just be yourself and do the things you love. Jenna is great at capturing the fun and it translates into photos that are real and beautifully depicts who we are!"

McGrath 10.6.17 http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/10/mcgrath-10-6-17 We met the McGrath family at Forest park on a beautiful October evening. They had the toddlers and puppies in tow and came ready to make some magic. We ran through the park, played in a dried up lotus pond, had some snacks by a willow tree and found a cool tree to hang out on. Carrie tells us why it's important to her to have photos taken: "Our lives are so full. Everyone of us is living these full and fast lives where days and weeks and months slip by in lists of to-dos. Taking the time to go have the photos taken is a stake in the ground saying, "This time is sacred. This time is the only time we have." Then putting them up and looking at them each day reminds me again that the time we have is a gift." Beautifully said. :-)

Meet The Webers http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/9/meet-the-webers The Webers were a delight to photograph. They're an incredibly easygoing family and enjoy the simple things in life like shopping at the local farmer's market, romping around on playgrounds & then coming home to cook a big meal and read stories until bed time. 


If you're looking at these and thinking, "I wish I had photos like this of my family!" Chances are, we'd be a good fit. The real moments in life are hard to capture, but that's my passion and I am committed to creating an experience for you rather than just a series of posed photos. I want you to remember this day fondly and enjoy yourself, and have that feeling again every time you look at your photos. Email me to set up a session. I am looking to add more travel dates to my schedule.. So let me know what city you’re in & we will get it booked!

Liz & Ryan in Thailand http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/8/liz-ryan-in-thailand This last trip I took to Thailand was special to me for so many reasons, but in particular I'm grateful to have met Liz & Ryan. We were set up through a mutual friend (Thanks, Linda!) and it couldn't have worked out any better. Ryan even took a last minute bus for 16 hours each way to make it for the shoot. The couple chose Mala Dhara eco resort and farm for the first location because they believe it truly showcases the beauty of Thailand. The owner is an incredible woman that built farm and eco resort herself. We were so grateful she opened up the space for us to have a delicious meal at and run around in! We encountered some critters including a grumpy buffalo that Liz & Ryan can be seen laughing and running away from! Next we moved to the night market in town. We felt it featured the of the beauty, culture and even chaos that is Thailand.
Ryan and Liz have both been living in Thailand volunteering with YWAM for a few years. They met and fell in love there, far from their families and many of their friends. Their family and friends in America, Singapore and abroad have gotten to know the two as a couple through pictures and stories via facebook. Because Thailand is such a big part of that story, it was important to them to have their engagement shoot there and gave them the opportunity to share their lives with those they love no matter how far away they are.

McGrath Family Session at Home http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/7/rose-mcgrath Meet the McGraths! We wanted to spotlight this family so you could get to know them a bit more. 
The youngest, Rose, is not afraid of using her voice to get what she needs or keep from being left out. She is also a goofball cuddler and will often flip herself around in your arms or on a chair to see where the action is or get in a  quick snuggle.

Justin, the big brother, will ask for a book about twenty times a day. He loves to hear a funny story and talk about the pictures or make up a silly game. He's a little more hesitant to get in the mix, but he 's great at quality time and making one on one connections.
Michael (dad) is top notch at playing with the kiddos. He is amazing at spontaneous creative high energy play. He makes up funny names for the toy people, like Squeaky Steve like Bouncy Bob. He is able to just play as usual during photo sessions and appreciates how the moment shows up authentically in the photos. 
Carrie (mom) is a bit quieter than Michael with her play and has a tendency to be more of a planner and organizer. If left to her own devices (sans children) she is reading, playing in the dirt or creating domestic loveliness. If with children she is following his lead, doing parades and doling out goldfish.
Lola Bean (the blonde dog) is loyal and lovable and will do anything for a belly rub or a romp. She is a classic annoying younger sibling to Howie and has been known to dive-bomb his face and then run away. Her favorite place to rest is the cool tile in the fireplace.
Don't tell Howie Dog (the black dog) he isn't people. He won't believe you and will likely be offended by the suggestion he shouldn't sit on the furniture or sleep in the bed. He still remembers using a doorbell to get in and out of the house. 

 The whole whole circus can often be seen waking around Shaw or through Tower Grove Park. 

If while looking at these you found yourself thinking, "I wish I had photos like this of my family!" Chances are, we'd be a good fit. The real moments in life can be hard to capture, but that's my passion and I am committed to creating an experience for you rather than just a series of posed photos.

Molly Brockman http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/7/molly-brockman The Brockman's finally welcomed home baby number two! Their 'mystery baby' now goes by the name of Molly, and she is an absolute delight. Their two-year old, Nora, couldn't have been any more excited about the arrival of her new baby sister. It was so much fun watching these two interact and I feel so incredibly lucky to have been able to watch this family grow and continue to do so!

Fitzer Newborn Session at Home http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/7/fitzer-newborn Julie & Rich love to travel - they've visited over 30 countries together and got married on a beach in Jamaica. Their oldest son, Max, has accompanied them to Spain & Morocco. They also like to hike.. Julie & Rich have climbed Mt. Kilimanjaro! Since Max has gotten bigger they now strap him on their backs and take him with them. He has been hiking with his mom & dad in Big Sur and Phoenix. Their dogs, Albert & Emma, are crazy but they love them anyway - that's how they met! Emma was Julie's dog and Albert was Rich's and they met in a dog park behind their old apartment. Now Albert and Emma are best buds, Julie & Rich are happily married and just welcomed baby number 2! The nursery they've made For Molly is absolutely stunning and a great reflection of the family's values and interests. The gold foil map on the wall is such a simple but beautiful touch and will hopefully inspire little Quinn to travel the world just like her parents!

Badler Family http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/7/badler-family I wish we were never too big or too old to get picked up and swung around by our parents. Some of the best memories are from childhood summer days spent romping around with our family in the backyard.

Caroline & Fletcher Engagement Session http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/7/caroline-fletcher-engagement “Only once in your life, I truly believe, you find someone who can completely turn your world around. You tell them things that you’ve never shared with another soul and they absorb everything you say and actually want to hear more. You share hopes for the future, dreams that will never come true, goals that were never achieved and the many disappointments life has thrown at you. When something wonderful happens, you can’t wait to tell them about it, knowing they will share in your excitement. They are not embarrassed to cry with you when you are hurting or laugh with you when you make a fool of yourself. Never do they hurt your feelings or make you feel like you are not good enough, but rather they build you up and show you the things about yourself that make you special and even beautiful. There is never any pressure, jealousy or competition but only a quiet calmness when they are around. You can be yourself and not worry about what they will think of you because they love you for who you are. The things that seem insignificant to most people such as a note, song or walk become invaluable treasures kept safe in your heart to cherish forever. Memories of your childhood come back and are so clear and vivid it’s like being young again. Colors seem brighter and more brilliant. Laughter seems part of daily life where before it was infrequent or didn’t exist at all. A phone call or two during the day helps to get you through a long day’s work and always brings a smile to your face. In their presence, there’s no need for continuous conversation, but you find you’re quite content in just having them nearby. Things that never interested you before become fascinating because you know they are important to this person who is so special to you. You think of this person on every occasion and in everything you do. Simple things bring them to mind like a pale blue sky, gentle wind or even a storm cloud on the horizon. You open your heart knowing that there’s a chance it may be broken one day and in opening your heart, you experience a love and joy that you never dreamed possible. You find that being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure that’s so real it scares you. You find strength in knowing you have a true friend and possibly a soul mate who will remain loyal to the end. Life seems completely different, exciting and worthwhile. Your only hope and security is in knowing that they are a part of your life.” 
― Bob Marley

Aaron & Olivia Engagement Session http://www.jelizabethphotos.com/blog/2017/6/aaron-olivia-engagement-session The love just oozes from these two. Olivia & Aaron couldn't stop smiling and laughing during this entire session. How could you blame them?! This was a private property that these two love to visit every time they're in Santa Barbara. We were given exclusive access to take photos there! One of the couple's first trips together was to Santa Barbara so having their photos taken at one of their favorite places, Casa Del Herrero, was very special to them. The location was absolutely beautiful and the weather was perfect for us all day.
