The past couple weeks in St. Louis have been pretty icky. Snow, frigidly cold winds, and the booty warmers on the seats in my car were on full blast. We all know how St. Louis can be, booty warmers one day, open moon roof the next. This Friday happened to be a moonroof day. The weather was perfection....kinda windy, but you better believe I use that wind to my full advantage! :) As I walked up the porch Kristi opened the door with a big smile on her face, and I immediately felt her welcoming presence. She has this polite demeanor and aura to her, almost reminding me of a southern belle. Her beauty radiates. Then came Ryan....despite their dog was so excited to see me it was having an accident on the hardwood floor, he was as chill as can be, and I immediately could see how their personalities meshed together so well. As we chatted about how they met, compared our trips to Italy, and watched the secret camera footage from his proposal....I instantly felt like I was around lifelong friends. Thank you guys for being so open to all of my ideas and going along with me. I can not wait to get the phone call that your sweet baby girl has arrived. :)
My favorite of the day.
Okay....they make it really hard to choose. This American Gothic painting inspired pic is def. going in my top 3 list.Sugar Shack is this candy shop in the heart of downtown Kirkwood. Since the day they opened, I have always found it absolutely adorable, and have wanted check it out. As we snapped a couple pics by the store front, I could hear some John Mayer tunes emerging from the open front door... I knew I liked this place for a reason....
Then, we stopped back by the store for Kristi and Ryan to change......and to my amuse and delight, MORE JOHN MAYER TUNES. Okay, seriously....now I knew this was fate. They had to have known what hearing "Slow Dancing in a Burning Room" does to me. We had to shoot in this store. Thank you Sugar Shack for being so sweet (No pun intended. Seriously, but once I re-read that.....it was pretty funny). ☺
Top 3 fav of the day. No doubt. ♥♥♥
I can only hope to look this good preggo one day!! :)
