Family photographers all have a different way of approaching a family session. Finding the one that suits your family is the most important. Study their portfolio and talk with them about their shooting style. I am not the photographer for every family and I am totally ok with that! There are all kinds of family photographers out there that range from traditional to documentary , with everything in between. I find myself somewhere in the middle, with a lean towards documentary vs. traditional.
There are some sessions that just make your heart happy as an artist, this session is that one for me. If you have been following me for any amount of time, then you know I love moments and emotion over perfection. I want my images to make you feel something!
I'm not sure how but I really have the most STUNNING clients ever! One of my favorite ages to shoot is around 6 months. They have just started sitting up and are usually all smiles. I loved all the faces this little guy made during our session. Of course, he had the biggest smiles when looking mom or dad!
The spring colors have been late to make their appearance in the St. Louis area. Everyone has been craving the warm sunshine on their skin, beautifully bloomed flowers, and green grass. This session had all of that and the most ADORABLE kiddos you will ever see. This is my second time shooting this family and both times have been so much fun. I have known Nicki since we were both much younger and living our lives child free.
