Happy First Birthday Grayson | St. Louis Family Photographer

I have seen this family grow from two to party of five. I fell in love with Sarah and Pat the moment I met them. I felt like they had been lifelong friends....and they have turned into just that. I have been there with them each and every time they have met all three of their babies. They have the patience of Saints, and were able to wait until they met their baby to find out if it was a boy or a girl. Their first two beautiful babes were boys.....and I could hear the joy (and slight fear ;) ) in Pat's Voice as he announced to Sarah that "It's a Girl!!!" I will never forget that moment!! Sarah was in shock & disbelief that her dreams had come true. The sweet baby that she held in her arms was going to fill their life with pink, sparkles, and unicorns! I can not believe it has already been a year since that moment, but I guess time has a way of sneaking up on you. Happy First Birthday Grayson!!!!!   (And scroll to the bottom for a flashback of her BirthStory!) 

And how cute is this best dressed babe!!!?!? Mommy picked out all of her outfits from the adorable Little Ladies Boutique

Of course we had to finish the shoot with her own cake smash!!!

Happy First Birthday Roman | St. Louis Family Photographer

I have had the pleasure and honor of documenting a very special little guy throughout the past year and a half. Meet my sweet nephew, Roman. He is sure to steal your heart with his big brown eyes, chunky thighs, and scrunched nose smile. He has stolen all of our hearts from the moment we laid eyes on him. It is hard to believe that one year ago, today, we were all in that Labor & Delivery room at Mercy Hospital praying for him to take his first breath. He gave us all a good scare! Thank you Kayla & Robbie for allowing me to tag along for the journey to capture each and every feeling, moment, milestone, and sweetness of your boy. Robbie, you have made me more proud than I could ever tell you. Honestly, I am in awe of how wonderful of a Daddy you are. From the moments you were there holding Kayla's hand in the delivery room, to the moment you fed Roman his first bottle, to all the things you do to support your family....you have grown from the little guy that was my little brother into an incredible man. Kayla, Roman (& Robbie) are both so lucky to have you. Watching you become a mother has been so special as well. You were born to do this. You are so strong, independent, caring, BEAUTIFUL, funny, smart, and loving. I love you both. As we all know, they change SO MUCH throughout the first year, so here is a little walk down memory lane. Aunt Ashley loves you Roman!!!

Lindsey + Christopher + Baby Lyla | St. Louis BirthStory

These two had me filled with tears of happiness when they shared their story with me. Lindsey worked as a Labor and Delivery nurse for years. On a daily basis, she was there to support and help mother's through the hardest and best day of their lives....and now it's her turn! They have waited years for THIS chapter. The chapter of parenthood and all of the fun stuff that comes along with it: getting maternity photos taken, getting overwhelmed in BuyBuyBaby as you make a baby registry, decorating a nursery, sleepless nights. Before we know it, they will be seeing their baby girl for the very first time. I could literally feel their joy throughout the entire shoot. I feel lucky to have met them and even more lucky to document such a special chapter in their lives! I will be eagerly awaiting the "It's Time!" phone call!!! You two are going to make incredible parents....and Lyla, you are SO LOVED ALREADY!!!
