The Bridge at the Moto Museum

Thursday, September 23, 2010
As a the staff photographer for The Bridge, I was able to photograph their 2nd Annual FunRaiser at the MotoMuseum earlier this week.  What a great location!  If you've never been to see this collection of motorcycles, you've got to check it out.  I think it's free. Can't beat that!

High profile folks were there... like senators, the mayor, and other local dignitaries like Fredbird! Isn't he so dignified?

Sara & Charlie

Saturday, September 18, 2010
Sara & Charlie totally made my yesterday afternoon (City Diner made my evening-mmm!)... They sure knew how to strike a pose.  These photos engagement pictures have a big story to tell, and I think we were able to squeeze in everything we wanted to!
Sara & Charlie have a destination wedding planned for December in Mexico.  I wanted to give them some pictures that reflect the liveliness and color of Mexico, but in St. Louis.  One spot even had some tall grasses, reminiscent of the beach- but we were just on the Loop.
Charlie loves architecture, especially old mixed with the new.  Little nooks along the Loop and Reservoir Park fit that bill!
Sara is a dancer and they both love music, so not only did we stop at Vintage Vinyl, but...
they danced to the sound of a street-side trumpeter.
This one took my breath away the moment I clicked the shutter.

I haven't done much in the way of personal posts recently, so for the family out there who might like a peek at our little one, here's a few...

The other night we went to a dance/percussion/poetry thing at the Old Post Office Plaza (where I did an engagement session earlier this year) to see a friend dance.  No spectacular pictures of this event- but here's my friend.

Since we were going to be outside, it was getting chilly, and it was with an artsy crowd, we decided to dress the part... And then we felt like we all looked pretty good-- so it was time to take some pictures on the front porch on the way out.

I loved this series of my husband and son together.
And one of me and Eli to finish off the set.

Sami & Zach

Every time I think of these two, I want to start singing "Zak & Sara"-- but they are too young to know the song... but that's ok.  They are music makers all their own- in the marching band in high school!  Sami & Zach are two seniors that had their sessions done together.  We did a lot of personal locations and props, shooting at their homes, high school, and favorite park. 

Here's a few faves:

Some friends of mine are preparing to move to India!  It's been fun to see their process of learning the culture, learning Bollywood dance, partaking in traditional foods, and selling two homes, all in a transition to move their family to India.  They are getting so close, and I am thrilled for their new adventure- and I might add they all look good in Indian clothes. 

I think this second one is going to be what I use to remind me to pray for them while they are gone and learning what it's like to live in another culture, as I just imagine them "in the field"- perhaps because they are literally in a field.  Though from my understanding, they will be in a city, but... still. Whatever works, right?
