A Country Wedding | St. Louis Area Wedding Photographer https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/a-country-wedding-st-louis-area-wedding-photographer Last September I had the honor of photographing this special day for these two.  It was such a fun and laid back wedding, and it had a dump truck, seriously, how cool is that.  If you own a hauling company you've got to have your dump truck in the pictures.

Sweet newborn girl | St. Louis Newborn Photographer https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/sweet-newborn-girl-st-louis-newborn-photographer I absolutely love newborn sessions.  Sometimes they go smooth (like this sweet girl) and sometimes not as smooth, but you know what, that's okay.  It's all about the baby so if they're a little fussy or won't settle we just go with and capture amazing images.  This little cutie was so much fun.  Dad's a mechanic and she's a little Chevy girl already!!

Everyone loves donuts!! https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/donuts I absolutely adore this cute family and always enjoy their sessions.  Last fall we did a Birthday Session for this cutie and she had donuts (Big Brother helped her out too).  A Mini Session was just the perfect amount of time to capture these images.   You should schedule a session once a year, even if it’s a Mini Session, to document your family’s growth.  Kiddos change so quickly and 10 years from now you’ll want to remember those little pig tails, etc.  Contact me to reserve your session.

DJ + Heather - A Wedding at the Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/dj-heather---a-wedding-at-the-vineyard-at-riverbend-chapel DJ + Heather – A Wedding at the Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel

 

This vintage inspired wedding was gorgeous!  I literally could blog the entire wedding because every detail was amazing.  The Groom’s Mother is so incredibly talented, she made all the decorations and the cake!  The Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel is such a gorgeous venue too, pair that with the vintage inspired décor and it made for a magical day.  (Side note- if you are getting married at the Vineyard at Riverbend Chapel, it’s on my preferred locations list and you’ll receive a discount on your package).  Hope you enjoy these images!!

Christy + Brian - 20 Years!!! https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/christy-brian---20-years Last year I had to extreme pleasure of documenting the 20th Wedding Anniversary of these two.  They are such amazing people and I was very honored not only to be able to capture their day but to be able to call them friends.  Their awesome love story started in high school, how cool is that.  When I met with them during the planning stages of the Anniversary party, Brian took me aside to tell me he was going to surprise Christy by renewing their vows.  The love these two have for each other is so evident in everything they do.  Hope you enjoy a few images from their fabulous day.

Allison - A Main Street St. Charles Senior Session https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/6/allison---a-main-street-st-charles-senior-session So I've been pretty busy over the last year and I've gotten a little (ok maybe a lot) behind on my blogging.  So I'm getting caught up.  Last fall I had this fabulous session on Main Street in St. Charles.  I love shooting on Main Street, there are so many fabulous nooks and crannies where you can capture some unique images.  Allison is gorgeous and was so much fun to photograph.  Here are a few of my favorites from her session.

Emily and Alex - A Firehouse Engagement Session https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/2/emily-and-alex---a-firehouse-engagement-session I met Emily and Alex last spring.  Alex is a Eureka Firefighter and had wanted their Engagement Session at his firehouse.   I love it when my couples suggest locations that are really important to them.  The weather didn't look like it was going to cooperate the day of their session, it actually rained on me on the way to the session, but last minute it cleared up and they totally rocked their Engagement Session.  You could just see the love these two have for each other.  Stay tuned for their fabulous wedding from last fall!!!

Fun little cake smash https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2018/2/fun-little-cake-smash So first off I'd just like to say probably my most favorite sessions are First Birthday/Cake Smash Sessions.  They are always so much fun, there's usually a few tears with each one (but Mom and Dad get don't tear up for too long -ha ha), but seriously they are such a milestone and I really enjoy being able to document them.  A full First Birthday/Cake Smash Session includes individual photos, family photos and then we end with the smashing of the cake (which by the way is included in the session fee).  About a month before the session I get all the decorations, etc so that we can match your theme as closely as possible.  Here's one from last year that was one of my favorites.

Christmas Mini Sessions https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2017/11/christmas-mini-sessions This year’s first weekend of Mini Sessions went great!!!  We do still have 6 spots open for this weekend.

Sessions are $125 this year and you will get a 20 minute session and you are guaranteed 15 digital images from your gallery to download with a print release (however, I tend to overshoot so you’ll most definitely get more), A $50 retainer is due with a signed contact at the time of booking, the retainer does go toward the final mini session price.

This year we are getting all images back within 72 hours (although it’s only been 24 hours for all sessions last weekend).  How fabulous is that!!  So you are guaranteed to have plenty of time to get those Christmas Cards out. NO EXCUSES!!!

So the real questions is why book your mini session with Ann Michelle Photography when there are so many other photographers offering sessions too.  Well for 1….ours are in studio so you don’t have to worry about weather, 2…we have high quality deluxe Christmas sets that are both timeless, 3…you get a lot of bang for your buck (a minimum of 15 digital files-that’s a steal, trust me check around, you’ll see)

, 4….we’re fun and fabulous and well you just can’t beat that!

PS....we like pets too, so your doggies are welcome in your family photos!!

So really, there’s only 6 spots left…6 spots that’s not many, grab them up while you can.  Even if you personally don’t need a session you can gift a session!

Olive turns 1 https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2017/4/olive-turns-1 I've been photographing this cutie since she was born.  Last fall she turned 1.  Miss Olive is such a cutiepie and we had such an adorable outdoor cake smash planned.  Sometimes, even when you are as pretty as a princess you're just not feeling the whole cake smash thing, but that was okay, she rocked her session like always!!  Mom and Dad stepped in to help out a little with the cake.  Olive's session is one of my favorites because even though she really didn't want to smash the cake she was as cute as can be.

EVERY GIRL DESERVES TO DO A GLITTER SHOOT!!! https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2017/3/every-girl-deserves-to-do-a-glitter-shoot A couple of years ago I was on Pinterest and came across a glitter shoot.  Wow, they looked fun and messy!  I showed my daughter who immediately wanted to do one.  So like every good Photographer Mom I had to go all out and buy a ton of adorable dresses, headpieces and glitter.  Oh yeah, lots and lots of glitter!!!  (But hey I researched the “correct” glitter so it’s not really as messy as you might think.  Anyway, so my home has filled up with even more dresses (yes the 12 from last year just wasn’t enough so we bought more, even cuter ones) and glitter and all the fabulousness involved in a glitter session.  I’m getting really excited for these sessions.  Last year was a huge success and this year is going to be even better.  But here’s the one catch with all this…I can only do these once a year so March 24th and March 25th will be the super sparkly days.   

So…we are covering the studio with glitter, making it rain glitter, throwing glitter and anything else involving glitter on Friday, March 24th from 4:00pm to 6:30pm and Saturday, March 25th from 10:00am until 2:30pm. Call today to make your appointment (314-602-0111), email us at info@annmichellephoto.com or use this link Click here to reserve your Glitter Shoot  to reserve a one of a kind session.   We are offering mini-sessions for $100 which covers a 20 minute session and a  disk of the edited digital files (approximately 15) with a print release . It’s gonna be more fun than you can imagine bring your daughters, sisters, friends and neighbors because Every Girl Should do a Glitter Photo Shoot!!!.

Kelsea + Jim - A historic St. Patrick's Rock Church Wedding https://annmichellephoto.com/blog/2016/10/kelsea-jim---a-historic-st-patricks-rock-church-wedding Here in Franklin County we have a historical gem, it's known as the "Old Rock Church".  It was originally built in 1853 but burned down in 1885 and was rebuilt and reopened in 1886.  It was a perfect setting for Kelsea and Jim's wedding.  These guys were so fun and laid back.
