The W. Family {St. Louis Family Child Photographer}

Whew! After a crafty binge on here, it's weird to get back to photographs! And especially when the session I'm sharing is from LATE SUMMER. Whaaaa?! How did this one fall through the cracks?? Especially since, as I am looking at the images again, I LOVE so many of them??

Oopsies!! Boo on me!

Quick, time to rectify this. Here is the W. family, a sweet family with two incredibly cute boys. It was a complete delight capturing them with my camera. We paid special attention to Zachary, since he was the new addition and needed some photos of his own. But Owen, the big brother, was on hand for PLENTY of charming photos of his own. :)

we started with a garage session.... LOVE the light, the simplicity, the color.... A timeless way to catch true PORTRAITS of this moment in their lives:

After our garage portion of the session, we got to play in their charming home and catch some "day in the life" images. I love this type of session, too, because you get the "real" side of the subject... In this case, Owen's deep love of anything Transformer related. :)

This next one TAKES MY BREATH AWAY.... LOVE the true connections here... Love the light. Love the texture of the walls and the details.... Love it.

And a few more in their awesome back yard....

Love this session. Love that I got to fulfil my split-personality as a photographer--- my love of posed, beautifully lit portraits, and my love of REAL LIFE moments, too... Love that they let me do both. Love the love between brothers and parents and each other.

And love that I still have many many many more sessions from autumn/winter 2009 to share with you before Christmas is upon us.

Happy Wednesday! Back to editing for me. I think I only have two nights left of editing before I can officially call 2009 FINISHED. Wahoo!!!!
