There’s really no place like home, no matter what city around the world I travel to... I love St.louis to the core. We’re always the under dog, underrated, looked past and honestly I love that. I love to prove people wrong!!! St.louis is truly one of a kind. Here’s some of my favorites from over the 3 years I’ve been shooting. Enjoy!

Sky is red tonight. It moves streaming with rain that beats the pavement. How does it sound against the church roof or its bells?

Denver shows up for metal shows! I got to see @currents  @erraband  and @northlane  put on what might be my favorite show to date. I highly recommend doing something like going to see your favorite band or artist on whim. Random trips to experience great music is always the way to go.

My only limits are the ones I choose to believe

I've been walking a lot more recently, usually a couple times around Francis Park every evening. I've lost about 20 pounds, and it's a good excuse to play around with different cameras and lenses just for fun.

My first time taking the new camera out for a test run and I feel like it was a success. 🙌🏼

Cozy sweaters, a warm mug of cider, the smell of baked goods, crunchy leaves, and the perfect snuggle, these are the things that autumn is made of! . . .It might still be a billion degrees here in the midwest, but that doesn’t mean I can’t start day dreaming about fall and counting down the days till the leaves start changing. . .Tell me! Are you all in for beach vacations and sun tans?

One pantless. One always sticking a foot down the vent. Both very much into that stellar Power Ranger plot line. 🤪 Those profiles though.

The way this little guy just snuggled in with his momma was amazing. He would turn to her and give kisses and snuggles and even though he is only 6 months old he SQUEEZED her. Sometimes, I take pictures that I imagine people looking at years down the road and saying, "Remember how (s)he did that??" Little things that you think you'll remember forever but sometimes it takes seeing a picture to jog your memory. Mom's ALWAYS get in the pictures with your babies (new or all grown up) because I promise, you will look back and cherish the way they were with you 💛

A little ✨Before and After✨ action! The left photo is a raw camera image. The right photo is after I work a little editing magic! 🤩

This pretty lady is 24 today! Happy Birthday @mrs.k.faires  cheers to you and years to come . . . #birthdaygirl  #24  #youth  #beauty  #live  #love  #smile  #happy  #stlphotographer  #couplegoals  #life  #cheerstothefuture  #marriedlife  #instabirthday  #instalove  #celebrate 

Fun Fact: My last photography post caption was written in my second native language: Sarcasm. Not-As-Fun Fact: I forgot not everybody speaks that language.... 😂 – To all my friends who thought I was actually giving up photography and reached out with words of encouragement, I appreciate you ✨💜 I’ll be 💀 before I ever put down this camera, so if you’re enjoying the journey, please peep this MAGICAL elopement session I just released!

The best newborn portraits are taken when the baby is 10 days old or younger, but we'll need a call from you a few months before your baby is born. . . . #portraits  #pictures  #photography  #photographer  #STL  #StLouis  #StCharles  #StCharlesPhotographer  #STLphotographer  #STLphotography  #stlnewbornphotographer  #stlnewborn  #newborn  #newbornphotography

Congratulations to @jessica_hitchcock  on the release of her new collection! 🎨 I was so privileged to get a sneak peek last week in her home studio! She took the plunge into full time creative self employment just a few months before me and has been such an inspiration as I have started my own journey. It was an honor to celebrate you and your new collection, my gorgeous friend. I can’t wait to watch you take over the world! 🌎

Yesterday was my gorgeous daughter's birthday. How does time fly by so fast?! I'm so proud of the loving, kind, smart, playful, generous, empathetic young lady she is. Every year, she gets more confident, more sure of herself + braver. There's truly no love like a parent has for their child ❤️ "Being 9 feels amazing. I feel like I'm so much older + that I should get a butterfly tattoo." - Rylie | Her birthday statement did NOT go the way I thought it would 😳😳😳🥳😅 #juliepottorffphotography  #sunflower  #sunflowers  #photography  #photographer  #southernillinoisphotographer  #chicagophotographer  #stlphotographer  #terrehaute  #enjoyillinois  #sunflowerfield  #juliepottorff  #childmodel  #modelstatus  #summer  #likemotherlikedaughter  #minime 

When we were driving up Mount Evans Kaitlyn said she desperately wanted mountain goats in some of her photos. When we reached the summit a family with a little baby was waiting for us.

Shooting in raw the past 2 months has completely changed editing for me. My colors are easier to manipulate and blend together seamlessly. ⁣ ⁣ I was always afraid to shoot in raw because of how much space the files take up. I also love shooting in high speed continuous and the burst of photos I can create is shortened when shooting in raw. ⁣ ⁣ By shooting in raw, I’ve completely changed the way I shoot and edit photos and it actually makes my sessions more efficient and my editing process and lot more creative. If you’ve been thinking about shooting in raw, take this as a sign from the universe to go out and do it!

Fall senior pictures have begun!

I feel like I’m supposed to be more sad that my oldest is in kindergarten, but I actually feel the very opposite. Not because I don’t miss him, but because I love seeing his little brain connecting so many dots. I love hearing about who he sat with on the bus and what he thought about the lunch I packed for him. I’m learning so many new things about him that I didn’t know before, like how nervous it makes him to get hot lunch, and how he prefers riding his scooter over his bike to the bus stop. I am also realizing how special this time is with my younger two. I’ve been craving this one-on-one time with them since the day they were born. I’ve loved every age in different ways, but this one might be my favorite so far. I hope you are all surviving these first couple of weeks back to school! And P.S. thank you, Jesus, for all of those teachers out there making homework optional!
