behind the scenes, latest sessions & love stories

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!

Jung Family | Green Bay Family Photographer

What a great way to start back to shooting after quarantine!! The Jung kids gifted this session to their parents (what a way to win brownie points, am I right?!) and they kept me laughing the whole time. It’s fun to have clients with young kids, but families with grown kids are enjoyable in a […]

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 […]

Their boys were toddlers, and we loved everything about their family. Before they left for Green Bay, I did their family pictures, […]

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!   […]

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 […]

DANIEL | ST. LOUIS FAMILY PHOTOGRAPHER

It was such a treat to photograph the Daniel Family. Chris and Ashleigh have three kids under 2. Yep, you read that right. When Ashleigh wrote and asked if they could bring bubbles, I knew it was going to be a fun session. They were so laid-back with the kids, and I just love how […]

WACKT | Central Illinois Family Photographer

I’ve known the Wackt family for several years now, and they really just keep getting more photogenic! I watched the leaves fall from the trees that week and was hopeful that we would still get the perfect fall colors. My day was made when I got to the site and there was a vibrant yellow […]

College roommates, in each other’s weddings, pregnant with our firstborn daughters at the same time, we’re both photographers, and most importantly – we are still such good friends, which I am incredibly grateful for. Gretchen and Josh have been such a gift to Spencer and I over the years. I am so thankful for Gretchen’s […]

Hayter | Family Portrait Session at Shaw Nature Reserve

I got together with the Hayter family for a portrait session just a couple of weeks before Keith and Sabrina’s wedding! They had already gotten engagement photos done due to time constraints, but I really like to work with my couple before the big day, so we decided to include the whole family! There were […]

LANGE | Family Portraits at Schroeder Park | St. Louis Family Photographer

When Christie called me this past winter to ask about family pictures, I knew that they would be just precious. With their oldest son home from California for a short time, she wanted to make sure they got a family picture and new photos of the kids. At the time of our call, I was […]
