• Hello.

    Thanks for checking in!

    Read along as I highlight my personal life and the families I am so lucky to meet though Sherry Lane Photography! I am not a "writer" so please do not judge my misspelled words and grammatical errors :)

Charlot Mae – St. Louis Birth Photographer – Sherry Lane Photography

You guys….. I have issues.  I feel like I start every.single.post.  with – get ready! This is a long one!  I just can’t seem to cut my posts down on photos.  Is that an issue? Lol, do you guys stay around and view the whole thing?  I mean this IS a photography blog… so the more photos the better I say 🙂

 I am SO EXCITED to post this birth.  Photographing any birth is breathtaking, but photographing a very close friends child taking her first breath is truly amazing.   I headed to Missouri Baptist Hospital the morning of January 3rd.   Katie and Mike had been there all night progressing right along.  I didn’t sleep much that night just waiting for the text and phone call updates.  Good thing I am used to Dominic keeping me up!  🙂  Katie had a little bit of a rough time with side effects from her epidural.  The good news is wasn’t as bad as the time she had with her first daughter.  But still watching your friend not feeling well AND laboring is hard stuff!  I just wanted to give her a BIG OL HUG!  Which is the last thing I am sure she wanted! lol  I try to keep my distance while photographing births.  Sometimes with small rooms that is hard to do.  But I try to stay quiet, not butt in many conversations…  Just let the couples focus and labor on as if I wasn’t there…  That was also hard to do when its your friend giving birth!  Hopefully I didnt talk your heads off 🙂

It was nice and quiet for a while when I got there.  All of their family was itching to get there!  But they had some great quiet time alone just the two of them all morning.  Taking it all in!

The new baby brought her new BIG SISTER a little gift.  So adorable!

Big sister Maria waiting oh so patiently in the waiting room.  She really got there just in time.  It was not going to be much longer for her to meet her new sister!

(like I said, it wasn’t long before her sister would arrive… pay attention to the time on that clock!)

A few practice pushes waiting for the doctor to arrive.

And once the doctor arrived, it was no time at all!

This.Moment.  This is why I love photographing births.  That emotion a mother has  touching her child for the first time.

Katie was guessing Charlot to be bigger than her first daughter, Maria.  Her guess was 7lbs 5 oz and Mike thought she was waaay over.  Her guess was right on the nose!!

I am so thankful to have witnessed Katie and Mike welcome their second daughter.  Thank you SO MUCH for letting me be there!  Congrats to your new family of four <3!!

Absolutely Breath taking pictures Sherry!!! Some brought tears to my eyes knowing that priceless joy Katie experienced welcoming her new bundle of joy!!!

Andrea Wolz - January 24, 2014 - 4:11 am

Wow! Beautiful. This meant the world to me. Thank you for sharing!

Tisha Lynn - January 24, 2014 - 4:13 am

Beautiful moments caught on film by an excellent photographer. Loved looking at these pictures !

Cathy Hemmer - January 24, 2014 - 1:23 pm

Love this!

Francesca Rehagen Abernathy - January 24, 2014 - 3:16 pm

Amazing pictures! Love the picture of little Maria holding her hands to her mouth when she saw Charlot for the first time. It doesn’t get any more special than that!

Maria Taylor - April 1, 2014 - 2:22 am

lovelovelovelovelove!!!!! I don’t know which is my favorite!! I will say that Charlot’s profile does look like Maria and I cannot get over the one of Maria covering her mouth! Oh, and I love the pic of her head being measured- sososososoooooooo cute!

M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 3 ~ Inside} – Sherry Lane Photography

Francesca has so much passion for dance roaring through her blood.  She is constantly moving, twirling, performing. She is a natural.  When I was thinking about what I wanted to do this weeks theme I got super giddy at the idea of doing it at dance class.  And it came out just how I wanted it to in my head.

Grainy goodness.

 I wanted an image that was hard to tell the era it came from.  OH what I would pay to have this photo of me as a little girl.  I can’t wait to blow it up for her room.  I only wish she had little leg warmers on 🙂

Week Three – Inside

The passion for dance runs deep inside my five year old daughters soul. I cannot wait to see who she becomes.

M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 2 ~ Imperfection} – Sherry Lane Photography

I thought all week about what I wanted to do for this weeks theme…. I wanted to be artistic.  Do something different. Push my boundaries a little…  And then, I got the Flu.  Blec.  Our house quickly turned into little imperfections all over the place! I was just too sick to get up and photograph them.  My sweet Alyssa helped out so much this week with her brother.  I was so incredibly thankful for the four snow days she had off from school!  I was sad to see her go in on Friday!  My little helper was gone!!

Also a HUUUUUUGE thank you to my daddy.  He came over and got snowed in our germ filled house to also help out while I was sick.

This morning Alyssa woke up not feeling so hot.  I was thinking she may have snuck by this one… But I am not surprised she caught it either!  She took care of Dominic so much for me.  And he had it too!

Week Two – Imperfection

Our imperfect week of the yucky flu bug.

M 4 H – Project 52 – 2014 {Week 1 ~ Reflection} – Sherry Lane Photography

I am starting this “project” with a very light hand.  I have tried to do 365 days of photos, monthly photos, whatever the name before and have not succeeded greatly.  I then stress out and feel like a nerd because I can’t even do it!  I am going to give myself a goal of doing half of these projects for 2014.  So 26 photos.  26 random weeks.  I mean, I am not super hero, but I do wanna document my everyday life more.  I am hoping this can guide me to do so.  I think it is the “theme” that gets me.  I over analyze…. and then question myself FIFTY TIMES after I have selected “THE PHOTO” and get all negative nancy on it.  I will try NOT to do that this time – cause if I do, its a set up for failure!

I have followed Sarah Cornish(#my4hens) on Instagram for a while now.  I am not even sure how I found her, but our girls are around the same age and I love watching the similarities between them.  SHE for REAL is a superhero.  She has a very successful photography business and just had her FIFTH baby!  I actually fell in love with her IG feed before I knew how popular she was.  Then I was like, woah!

If you wanna play along, here is her full blog post with all of the details.

Week One – Reflection

The way she treats him is a reflection of me.  I am trying to remember this more and more often, for all of my kids.

Sherry Lane Photography – St. Louis Photographer – 2013, What a Year!!

 

Happy last day of 2013!

This sure has been an awesome year both personally and business wise!  I took the year A LOT slower with the anticipation of our new family member joining us in May!

While multiple things have changes in our lives, it has all been for the good here! I cannot wait to see what 2014 brings for my family and business.

A special thank you to a handful of photographers I was honored (SO HONORED)  to work with this year second shooting at weddings.  It was a BLAST!  Here are just a few that I was able to use for my portfolio 🙂

The rest of this post is FILLED(in no particular order!) to the brim of awesome families I had the pleasure of photographing this year.  I also included some special moments of my own family if you see some familiar faces!

 Happy New Year to you!!
