Courtney here…

On my last trip to St. Louis I had the privilege of shooting a newborn & family session with two of my high school alums. Because of my family's big move to NC, I hadn't seen them since 2005 on graduation day.  In the last eight years they had fallen in love, gotten married, had beautiful baby Elijah, and recently welcomed baby Caroline into the family!

I had followed Ashley's blog for the past few years, and it was so fun getting to finally meet Elijah- who celebrated his 2nd birthday today- and baby Caroline.  It enjoyed the challenge of incorporating an active toddler into the newborn photographs.  Elijah wasn't quite sure what to make of his new sister and would often grab her and try to kiss her, to her disdain.  It made for some cute moments!

Nate and Ashley, thanks so much for giving me the opportunity to photograph your family!  It was great to catch up a bit after all these years and get a peek into your family's life.  I hope you enjoy these pictures!
