Last weekend I shot one of my favorite families for their annual photo session.  This year we decided on a new location. We decided on St Louis family photos at the Jewel Box in Forest Park.  The light is always amazing with plants and flowers  always in full bloom.  Rain or shine, warm or cool temperatures this location always works!  We were especially happy because last Saturday the wind was blowing like crazy.  Being indoors with the appearance of being outdoors was exactly what we needed for this photo shoot.St Louis Family Photos

We were all thrilled for this session and had been planning it for months.  Since our last session, their family had grown and I was thrilled to meet their sweet baby girl.  Isn’t she just the cutest?

Next came cuddle time with both Mom and Dad.  Again with those amazing toddler hugs that I’m so wild about capturing as part of the family photo session.
