Valentine's Mini Sessions!

For the first time, I am proudly hosting a mini session day!!

This will take place on Sunday, February 12, 2012.

What are mini sessions?  Well, I'm glad you asked!  Mini sessions are a simple way to get beautiful photos at a great deal!  Your session will be half an hour in length, and you will receive around 20 high resolution photos on a CD with a printing rights release.  Because I will hold multiple sessions in one day at one location, I am able to offer a great deal to everyone!

Whom are these mini sessions for?  This day will be for everyone!  Come couples, come families, come everyone who wants to spend time with those you love!

Where will they be?  Assuming good weather, I will set up camp at Faust Park in Chesterfield and meet you there!  If the weather is undesirable, we will meet at Ameristar Casino in St Charles, where the natural light and cool backdrops abound!

How do I book?  Send me an email!  My email address is photos.byLoria@yahoo.com.  I will send you a list of available times as well as details on how to reserve your spot with a $25 deposit. 

I can't wait!!  I hope to see you there!

Katie & Matt :: Engaged!

Meet Katie and Matt!  You won't have to wait long to see their wedding images, because this couple is tying the knot in early March!  But for now, I hope you enjoy their engagement session.  We held it in the early evening, and the light was lovely!

Matt and Katie were engaged in July, and Matt popped one of the coolest proposals I've heard of.  Katie came home one day to discover Matt had snuck in and left evidence behind.  She discovered cards decorating the rooms, each with a reason he loved her written on it.  Rose petals led her to the bedroom, where she found the big question written out on the bed in the same.  Sigh . . .  now that's romantic! 

The beautiful bling . . . .

Is Katie not gorgeous?  I've never used the word "fierce" before on my blog, but this time, I think it's appropriate!

Congratulations, Katie and Matt!  I can't wait for the sweet, beautiful day that will be your wedding!!

Chris & Isaac :: Love and Fun in the Snow!

Just a few days ago, I had the pleasure of shooting for Chris and Isaac, two cute love birds who have been married just over a year!
Chris is also a photographer, and she has helped me a couple of times by second shooting!  This girl is so willing to help and just so sweet to be around.  Her and Isaac are both in school studying missions right now, and it makes me excited to think what a dynamic duo they are and will be!

Capturing a few shots while Isaac went off to get something . . . .


Talk about long, gorgeous hair!

And what did he bring back?  Hot cocoa!  Such a cute prop idea, and it was all Isaac!  They were nice enough to share some with me too :)

I instantly envisioned snow pictures when I was thinking of these two.  I hadn't met Isaac yet, but just from seeing pics on Chris's facebook, I knew they were both big kids and would be adorable in the snow!   I think you'll see what I mean . . . .

 We had a lot of fun at this shoot!  Thanks so much, Chris and Isaac, for bearing the cold with me!  
Congrats on just over one year of marriage :)
