Main Street, St. Charles, Missouri

This past Christmas (well technically, it is still Christmas until tomorrow ... but you get what I mean) I was on Main Street ALOT for my kiddos to perform in the Lewis and Clark Fife and Drum Corps. I thought since I am down there, I might as well do mini sessions! Main Street is always perfectly decorated during Christmas. There is such a cheer that surrounds that place. Not like a mall where everyone is grumpy and mission oriented. It seems like the people on Main Street really soak up the season.

Maskcara in Saint Louis!

We had a great time at Aurora Lord's and I's Maskcara Launch Party. It was a day filled with beauty and fun. and an amazing venue. The Stone House of St. Charles is one of the most beautiful venue's in St. Louis, if not THE most beautiful! Seriously you need to check it out.

These beautiful ladies signed up for social media headshots wearing the Maskcara Beauty makeup, and they just had the best of times. I had a great time photographing them as well. I think I got my steps in that day going all around The Stone House of St. Charles, because we went into every room! Even the bathroom!

One of the reasons why I started selling Maskcara Beauty is because of how pretty the makeup is! It is just so fun to have something so glamorous!  For not the glamorous price tag!

Any-who, thank you to all who came out to support us. We truly appreciate it! If you weren't able to make it, and are interested in Maskcara Beauty product, please don't hesitate to contact us!

Big Changes for us!

Change is in the Air!

We promised that last year we would lower our pricing, and we did drastically! But with our new little one, the cost of childcare going up, and soon to be high schoolers in the house, we have made the very difficult decision to raise them slightly.

BUT, before this becomes a permanent change we are offering our clients the ability to pre-order their sessions (no limit!) at the previous $250 per family session, $250 newborn session, or $1,000 first year sessions. You will receive a physical gift certificate good for each session you pre-order. Think Christmas sessions! Spring sessions! Birthdays!

This offer will only be good until June 1st, 2017.

We love our clients and hope that this makes the transition easier for all of our clients. Please know, that it wasn't without great stress that this was decided.

Here is a preview of our new 2017 pricing, we can't wait for you to see what we changes we have in store for the remainder of the year and into 2018! Click the image below:
