A Few of My Favs from 2015

2015 was a great year!

Here’s to 2016! Call now to book your date!

Wanna Get Married?

Been thinking about getting married but really don’t have that dream of a large wedding? Don’t want to have to invite lots of people, or spend all the time in to planning and taste testing and then of course the money? BUT, you do want something that is special; something that you and your partner get to share between each other, witnessed by a few of your best friends and your family too?

Well, have you ever thought about eloping? You can pick a favorite spot and say your ‘I DOs’ with a real officiant. You can even wear a wedding gown (or your favorite pair of jeans).  You can have beautiful flowers and rings and a professional photographer.  And it is affordable.

If you want to learn more, check out Elope STL.  I have been working with Carolyn for a few years now.  She offers complete packages that include her services, flowers and a photographer.  Carolyn is fun and accommodating and down right innovative if you need help planning. If you are looking for a low stress option yet still very special, then you will love an elopement!

Enjoy a few photographs from some of the elopements I have participated in with Carolyn.

Just a few of my Favs

Just moving August images into archives and I thought I’d share a few of my favorite images from last month.

Enjoy!

St Louis Outside Family Portrait by Kristi Foster Photography

That was one hot morning! But the girls were so patient and gracious with their smiles.

What a sweet elopement this was.  Were we outside the Faust Park with Carolyn Burke, the Elopement Connoisseur.

Mark is a Senior this year! First time I photographed Mark, it was for his bar mitzvah, he wore his pet snake around his neck!

Sammy! You made me smile from the first time I met you!

I met Sammy when he was 8, 9 or 10, oh, I can’t remember exactly.  But I remember he was full of energy and driving his mother crazy. You see it was his brother’s bar mitzvah day and Sammy was having nothing to do with family pictures.  In fact I believe his exact words were “NO, NO, NO”. And he meant it.  After letting Sammy take a few pics with my “big fancy camera”, he warmed up to me and actually let me make some images of him with the family.  He was cutting up and just making me laugh.  He simply kept me entertained the whole night.  Every time I’d see him after that, I would say to myself…”I love that kid”! So you can imagine how happy I was when his mother ask me to photograph his bar mitzvah, and even happier to have his mom call me for his senior portraits too.  And yep, I’m holding out for his wedding (though he need not be in a rush!).

Here are a few pics from Sammy’s Senior session.

say Hello to Marie!

I first met Marie at a wedding.  That’s right, she walked down the aisle just like any other attendant at a wedding.  Marie is the bride’s seeing eye dog.  I’m not sure what makes a good seeing eye dog, but all I know is Marie is very sweet, social and obedient. So last week I got the chance to photograph her again.  She really is good at posing for sure; makes my job so easy.

I don’t know much about Yoga either, but Marie obviously does; she is showing off her skills for me.  Well after all, her mommy does teach yoga class and Marie goes with her to every class!

Enjoy the pics of Marie!

 

Senior Portrait Session

I couldn’t believe it when Laurie emailed me and asked if I could photograph Rachel’s senior portrait…when did that happen? It seems like just yesterday I photographed her bat mitzvah.  We decided to meet at Faust Park.  And well, it was one of the hottest days of the year.  While I was sweating bullets, Rachel was calm and cool.  She made my job easy with her posing and smiles…and her fun ideas of course.  Since Rachel plays the Viola, she brought it along too.  Now that I think about it, I should have had her play me a song or two.

Enjoy the images of Rachel’s and stay tuned for the other Berwald sisters, they will be coming close behind.
