Tracy at the Jewel Box

I had the pleasure of doing a photo shoot with Tracy.  We decided on the Jewel Box.  I really like the location because of all the flowers and pretty backgrounds.  

It was also a family affair with her granddaughter, Allasandra and parents.   The weather was also simply awesome.

2nd Photo Shoot with Amy!

Amy has to be one of the nicest person that you will ever meet and darn good model.  She has really great energy and has a fun personality that shows through the pictures.

We started out on the Delmar loop and finished up in Forest Park.  I am so happy that summer in St. Louis is almost over.  I'm not sure what to do during the winter ice storms but I really love this fall weather.  It is perfect weather for outdoor shots!

When we got to Forest Park, Amy changed into this rather stunning dress that looked almost like a wedding dress.  I'm still waiting to do my 1st wedding!

Check out all the fantastic pictures of Amy on my flickr page!

Photo Shoot with Briana in Des Moines!

I was only in Des Moines for 24 hours but that's still enough time to do business and get a photo shoot in.  Brianna is an aspiring model who lives in Des Moines.  Her goal is to go to New York and strike it big.  She will not need luck because she has a great attitude.

We did all of our shoots before it got too dark outside the Des Moines capitol building.   The lighting turned challenging as some dark clouds covered that last half an hour of sun.  Seems like she started sparkling when the flash came out.  There was a pretty nice downtown backdrop but I lost a few pictures due to not having a trip pod.

Anyone interested in seeing all the pictures of the shoot should check them out on flickr!

I stopped by the Polish festival and was immediately adopted by this big Polish family who lovingly referred to me as Paulsky!

Sarah Takes Over the History Museum

If there ever was a model who's personality shows through the pictures, its Sarah. We met for a second shoot at the St. Louis History Museum in Forest Park. For some reason I thought there was a lot more to work with. It turned out that the setting didn't have to work to hard for us to produce some really nice shots.

Sarah does a lot of work to support the cure for breast cancer. I hope the 1st several shot can be used for her website and promotion of this worthy cause.

The remaining shots were just fantastic and lots of fun. It was challenging to get good balance with the setting sun that streaked right across almost all of the shots.

Enjoy! All the pictures are on flickr.

Any one recognize any of these guys. They were walking down Delmar and decided to strike a pose! I'm always looking for people with attitude!!

Six Takes on the Delmar Loop!

Some people took Labor Day off, we took pictures! I met Six on the Delmar Loop and we had an awesome shoot. Six had a fresh new look and need some pictures.

The weather was ideal! My favorite shots were around the Chuck Berry statue. Initially I didn't like taking pictures by the statue because it felt a little cliche. Everyone take pictures around statues. However once the camera started clicking I noticed that we got some really unique views.

Thanks Six! Check out all the pics here.

I met this really charming young lady. I sure hope her parents kept my card and are able to download this picture of her. She is adorable.
