behind the scenes, latest sessions & love stories

Welcome to the blog

hi, i'm molly!

Lover of giddy couples who like to laugh and have fun. Wife to Spencer and momma to two little girls with a little guy on the way! A clean house is the key to my sanity, but when that's not happening I love me some dark chocolate and Diet Coke. I hope you can get to know me and my style through these blog posts!

Whitley | Green Bay Family Photographer | Pamperin Park

The Whitleys got to be my first session upon arriving in Green Bay, and goodness they were sweet! Graham had us cracking up, and there were many reminders to keep hands out of sleeves – even if you’re freezing! But you can’t tell at all from these pictures – we just pretended we were at […]

Baudhuin Family | Green Bay Family Photographer | Green Isle Park

I first met the Baudhuins SIX years ago when we were all at seminary in St. Louis. We lived next door for a summer, and then shared a backyard for the next semester. Their boys were toddlers, and we loved everything about their family. Before they left for Green Bay, I did their family pictures, […]

Dominic & Haleigh | Wedding at Andre’s Banquet Hall

Dominic and Haleigh’s wedding day was full of laughter, and tears of joy. It all started with a fake first look, with the best man dressed in a wedding gown. Haleigh’s walk down the aisle was one of the most poignant that I’ve had the honor to witness as Dominic watched his bride walk toward […]

Joe and Alli | Engagement Session at Forest Park

In the middle of a packed, noisy Tower Grove Park, they laughed and danced as though they were the only people there. There were crowds of people, no parking, and lots of music but we found some gorgeous, secluded spots in the middle of the crazy. It felt similar to their proposal last spring – […]

Dustin & Paige | Engagement Session at Forest Park

We braved Forest Park on the most crowded day I’ve ever seen. Dustin and Paige took the crowds in stride and were up for anything as I dragged them all over Forest Park 🙂 We hit most of the prime spots – Grand Basin, Art Museum (in the background), Art Hill, and the World Fair […]

Harper | Family Portraits at Queeny Park Dog Museum

When a session feels like meeting up with old friends, I am reminded of just what a privilege it is to walk through life with people as a photographer. It has been so much fun watching Alex and Madeleine become parents. Your little blue-eyed girl is the sweetest! Check out Harper’s newborn photos here!   […]

Sam and Taylor | Wedding at Silver Oaks Chateau

If I had to put one adjective to Sam and Taylor’s wedding, I would say FUN. These two love board games, and so creatively incorporated them into their wedding day with a themed seating chart as well as game tables set out in the balcony during the reception! My husband and I have most of […]

Family Photos 101 | St. Louis Family Photographer

You know that it is time for updated family photos, but you feel a little bit of dread (except you’d never admit that to your spouse, since you practically begged them to agree to do a session). I’m a professional photographer – I take photos of people for a living – I should be a […]

Alex & Sarah | Engagement Session at Forest Park

Everything about Alex and Sarah’s engagement session was a dream, taken at the gorgeous Jewel Box and the Muny. The forecast was for storms, but it miraculously held off until the very end, when they ran across the street and kissed in the rain while I took photos. I mean, pinch me! Getting to know […]
