Ahhh this family is so awesome! We did a last minute shoot before I headed out of town to Michigan and mom got their outfits picked out and perfectly coordinated in 2 days! She deserves a prize for that in itself. On top of that, we had a severe storm looming over St. Louis the entire day and they totally kept their cool. I had been following the weather and was pretty confident we could make it through the shoot before the storm came. And we did! About two minutes after we ended the shoot and we were in our cars, it started to rain. I love it when things work out so nicely :) Anyways, this family is awesome for so many other reasons than the two I just listed. They are so kind and loving, it really is a privilege to take their pictures. I love the way they interact with each other. I love the way they snuggle up to each other. I love the way they play together. And I really love the way Greta squeezes the heck out of her baby brother to show him how much she loves him. Enjoy this sweet family!
Get ready for some baby fever! Stella is one of the prettiest little babies I have ever seen. I kept telling her mom and dad, who already knew, how perfect she was. She was so sweet too. Her cry was more of a whimper and her momma, Sherry, is so good at calming her down. She would basically go silent as soon as Sherry would "shh". It was pretty magical. That is one of my very favorite things about photographing newborns and their parents. There is such a strong bond right from the beginning and that baby knows who his/her parents are. And her furry siblings were in on the special bond too. They would barely leave Stella's side while I was doing her pictures. There is nothing quite like photographing unconditional love :) Enjoy!
