Jodie and Brian | Maternity

I will hold you in my heart, until I can hold you in my arms.
It was a very warm evening when we met up with Jodie and Brian. But Jodie was GLOWING and we managed to go to several areas that hold special memories for the two of them...
Brian took the Amtrak from St. Louis to be with Jodie.
Their first date was at Madison’s. :)
A special shout out to MATT, the best assistant ever, for all these behind the scenes, and always keeping it FUN! Thank you Jodie for reaching out to 2Rtist Photography and entrusting us to capture your special moments. CONGRATS and best of luck to this sweet couple — only a few weeks to go! xo Ren

Jeremy & Sami | Engagement

Where there is Love,
There is Life.

I met Jeremy when I went in to talk to my insurance team about adding insurance for my photography business. After our meeting, he says, “So you take pictures? I’m looking for a wedding photographer.” That was the beginning, and I’m excited to say that Jeremy and Sami are the sweetest, down-to-earth couple, and we are looking forward to their big day in November!

We could not have asked for more perfect weather and a beautiful backdrop at Kelly’s farm. Thank you Jeremy and Sami for entrusting 2Rtist Photography to capture this very special time! Enjoy every moment and see you in November! xo Ren

Rachel | Class of 2018

Your education is a dress rehearsal
for a life that is yours to lead.

I met Rachel four years ago when I went to China with the College of Business Study Abroad group. Flash forward to now, when she contacted me about taking her graduation photos. Rachel is still the same happy-go-lucky, friendly and pretty young lady I met awhile back — except with a Masters in Accountancy.

Rachel, THANK YOU for reaching out to me and entrusting 2Rtist Photography to capture this special time. Good luck with your future adventures; we wish you the BEST! xo Ren

Live more MAGIC

for you are light
and wonder.
for there are galaxies
within you 
and stardust
dances in your soul
stars live in your eyes,
and glory and grace
live in your bones.
you are beautiful.
you are light and wonder.
you shine.
These two. xoxo Ren

Carla’s family

The most important thing in the world is family and love.~ 
Carla reached out to me before Christmas to take photos of her family since her parents and (almost) 96-year-old grandma would be visiting. We decided to shoot at her home, which was a perfect setting. It was snowing and a freezing 14 degrees outside, but they could not be a more authentically adorable family, complete with three well-mannered dogs.

Happy early birthday Grandma!

I LOVED all their pups but I’m a bit smitten with BENNIE, their Frenchie.
Behind the scenes photo: Matt Reiske. Thank you Matt for the best assist, always! 
Carla, we had the BEST time with your family. What a great-looking clan — you all made it so easy! THANK YOU for entrusting 2Rtist Photography to capture these moments. xoxo Ren

May we all do a little bit better than the first time
Learn a little something from the worst times
Get a little stronger from the hurt times
~ Florida Georgia Line
Getting to Know LAUREN

Hometown: Columbia, MO

Three words that describe me are competitive, ambitious, funny

One thing people don’t know about me is my biggest dream is to visit all 50 states before I die.

Where is the most interesting place that you’ve ever been? Cape Cod, Massachusetts

Best high school memory: Going to state for softball my freshman year

Favorite food: Italian

Describe your perfect day: I’d be on a beach with a bunch of fruit and go paddle boarding. I’d end the day with a front row seat to the sunset.

Plans after graduation: I am going pre-med, majoring in biology and minoring in psychology. I hope to be an OBGYN.

Lauren, I will forever have my OPPS-I-fell-in-the-water-moment with you! THANK YOU for coming back to finish your fun session and being such a good sport and model! Thanks Kim and Lauren for choosing 2Rtist Photography. ENJOY these memories and have the best senior year! xo Ren
