Samantha & RC’s Forest Park St. Louis, MO Family Session

I was so excited when my sister in-law, Samantha, asked me to take some family portraits for her. You may have thought that these were models for a styled shoot, but NOPE! This cute little family of four are my in-laws. My job is SO much fun because I love meeting new people, but it was so special getting to work with a couple that I had an important connection to!

Samantha & RC’s story is really special. They met in college at Mississippi State University and moved to Illinois to be close to RC’s family after college (they now live in the coolest city ever, St. Louis, MO). They got engaged in St. Louis and later married there on St. Patricks day (#luckymartins), which turned out to be one of the coolest weddings i’ve ever been too! If you are engaged and trying to pick a date, think about choosing a holiday! It will seem like everyone is celebrating your anniversary with you each year and can just make it that much more special.

For their family session, we decided to go to Forest Park in St. Louis, MO. Forest Park is huge and has so many beautiful spots for photographers to capture special moments like these. Scroll down to see more of their pretty fall session!

- Raneem

She is very positive and responsive and open to any new ideas. She even stayed a little extra to take more pictures. The pictures were perfect and she captured all the moments. Me and my family loved them!! She also worked really hard to get them a little early, which I really appreciate. I would definitely recommend her!!

"Morgan was amazing!!! I loved working with her."

- Kayla 

She is sweet, easy to work with and came prepared with poses and direction. She took the time to view our initial chosen park location prior to our session and suggested a different location due to the scenery dying out in December. She is gifted with her camera and has a natural ability to capture real moments. Follow her lead and you’ll love the memories created from the magic she captures! 

"Morgan was extremely responsive from the beginning. "

- Ayesha

I was stuck on a budget and was planning my wedding with the date coming right up with no photographer booked yet. Even though my wedding was on such short notice, Morgan said she could do my wedding pictures and fit my budget. The pictures she took are stunning and I can’t stop looking at them. 

"I had my wedding pictures done by Morgan and I am so happy I did! "


This is not just a talent, but a calling. I was searching for a photographer for my 18th birthday and she took the assignment and did more than just extra credit. I am truly pleased and this will not be the last photoshoot with this amazing human being!
