• 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 :)

Molly is ONE! – St. Louis Family Photographer

Oh Molly! What a year it has been!!

Newbie ~ Six Months ~ One Year


Warning, this is a photo heavy post! I just couldn’t narrow them down!!

I’ve had so much fun documenting Molly over the last year (and in her Momma’s belly too!)  She is such a gorgeous little lady!

It was a lovely toasty, humid! evening when we meet for her One year old session.  I think we got it all done in about 40-ish minutes?!

Thank you for being such troopers Matt and Jenny!

 (and especially Matt! Who had been traveling for work the few days before and was running on like no sleep!!)

Molly was a little unsure about it…  🙂

I think she prefers to be a clean baby!!   🙂

Aubree – St. Louis Newborn Photographer

Miss Aubree gave me a run for my money!  She choose her session day to be the day she was most awake, ever!  But we did get her to conk out for a few poses shots.  Her daddy Bruce is overseas right now and I know her mom Becca cannot wait for him to get back!!  I had lots of fun with you two!  Thanks!!

BFF, Besties, Tres Amigas.

My besties took me out to celebrate my 30th birthday last weekend.  At first they would not tell me where we were going and all I kept seeing were these signs for Daniel Boone’s historical home and I was all like YAY… Daniel… Boone’s… home…!

THANK GOODNESS the car ended up at Chandler Hill Winery instead!!!

Hello gorgeous.



This place was awesome.  Great scenery, a cute little band playing.  It was a tad toasty out… OK, more than a tad – but who cares!

There was WINE!


Well, at least there was wine for me and Maria   🙂

Bruschetta and spreads.  Delish.


Chandler Hills, Riesling.  Mmmm.

Maria and I both had the Chicken and Brie Panini and Katie had the Chicken Salad


DUH, there was dessert.  Key Lime Pie and Milkway Cheese cake. YUM.


I ran into one of my bride and grooms from last year, Ryan & Jessica – they were celebrating their one year anniversary!!

SO I HAD to take a photo for them 🙂

  (they had the COOLEST hay ride after ceremony…  seriously. THE BEST!)


So we had some wine and closed the place down….  like really – we were one of the last groups to leave.  SO then the photo session started.

Sorry your not in focus girls.  Camera settings are hard after three glasses of wine.

I wasn’t joking – we for real had a photo session… or three.


Nope – no wine for this one.  She is just this awesome. GO Kate!


These girls.  Garsh, I sure do love them.


Katie’s wee little bump.  5 months.



Like I said.  IT.WAS.HOTTTTT.  I could see my face shinning away in the lens when Maria was getting all up close in my face.


OK, back to the bump.  That is so much cuter than muhhhh sweatyyyy faccccccceeee.



So then we crossed over the little road to the actual vineyards.  Duh – it was a winery.  We HAD to take some with the grapes.  I mean really!



There were bugs….  that liked Maria.   (heart you!  hee hee!)



That last one there – on the left.  Yeah – I love it.  Maria’s face IS.THE.BEST.   LOL That was her WTH, you have to say ONE TWO THREE face.

 I was clearly the only one ready for that one.


Ohhhh, Kate.  I love ya.  Cant wait to meet this little baaayyyyyybeeeee.  My heart is so happy for you.



You are the only person I know who could look this cute swatting bugs away from your face.






Dear Chandler Hill Winery,

(and Maria and Katie)

Thank you for a new birthday (or any sunday you guys want) tradition.  We had such a good time eating and draaaanking it up at your fine establishment.  The wine was scrumptious.  And thank you workers for not yelling at us in the field after you had already closed and drove by us.  Cause I mean – those pictures made the trip.   I love you girls SO MUCH. I mean the last 15+ years have been totally awesome.

We have known each other for more than HALF of our lives.  That is weird. And awesome.

(also, please be safe and have a designated driver.  Yes, wine is delicious, but we heard the loud crash of an accident and are pretty sure it was a young group that left a little before us.  Sure hope they ended up ok…. The road was blocked and we had to take a detour so we didn’t see how bad it was.  Just be like us and take a pregnant woman…..     no really – just be safe.)


SO cheers to being THIRTY,  it’s been pretty awesome so far!!  And thanks again girlies – I looooove ya!!!

The Boy. Month Two

Dominic is TWO MONTHS OLD!

Just as a reminder, here he  is at one month old.  And his full One month post is here.


I totallyslacked on photos this month and it makes me so sad!  My camera was broken and I took forever to get it sent in.  I used my phone for lots of photos, most of which you may have seen on my Instagram.  I did take a few with my suuuuuper old Canon Rebel Xti.  That thing has been clicking away for about….  6 or 7 years now!  And it also has made me incredibly grateful for my Mark ii 🙂  And a thank you to Kelly for letting me borrow her Canon 7D for a few days to get some official “two month” photos~

I will just let all the snapshots do the talking.




two month stats:

14lbs 9oz

24 in 3/4 in

Some 0-3 Month clothes – Mostly 3-6 mo

Size 1 diapers – only because I have a few packs left!  I have no doubt a 2 would fit!! 🙂

Eating – ALL>THE>TIME.  Every 2-4 hours, depending on what we have going on.

We have had a few 5-6 hour nights, nothing consistent!!

Hair: Balding!!  He still has the “old man ring” around the back – and thats about it.  Peach fuzz everywhere else!!

Whoa belly!

Smart phones are awesome.  I barely took any photos during my other two pregnancies.  But with the ease of having camera phones I actually took some during this last one!   I didn’t do every week, but you can defiantly see the progress!!

Yeah, that black t-shirt one… had him the next day. WOWza that’s a belly!! ^^

Some other random belly shots, in no particular order 🙂

SO no real reason for this post, other than for me just documenting it for myself.  But I hope it makes you want to take more pics of your belly 🙂  It goes so fast and you never know if it will be your last pregnancy.  Even though those last weeks are sooo rough, I do miss it!

How do they fit in there?  3 weeks 6/21/2013)

I love your belly pictures!
