Late summer in St. Louis maybe one of my favorite times for an outdoor family session. The temperatures are just right and that beautiful golden fall light is starting to make it’s appearance. I was so excited to shoot this family again! It was a session filled with so much laughter and joy but it didn’t start out that way. When I met up with this family, all 3 kids were crying! The last thing any of the kids, and probably parents too, wanted to do was go take pictures. But you know what, they kids left this session saying how much fun they had. If the kids are happy then mom and dad are happy and it shows in your images! Those are the images that you want to walk by everyday and jus stare at because they make you feel something. I am not photographer after the perfectly posed families. I want the emotion, laughter, joy, chaos, and realness that is family.
