As a photographer, I get to meet a lot of really great people, and in many cases, form a relationship and become friends with them. With this session, however, I actually had the chance to reconnect with an old friend! Whitney and I grew up a street apart from each other in the suburbs of Kansas City, and were good friends throughout school. We went our separate ways, until this fall when she reached out after seeing my work online! She is now married with an absolutely adorable baby boy, and I was so thrilled to hear from her and have the opportunity to photograph their family photos this year!
Their session was on one of the first chilly St. Louis mornings we had, but they warmed each other right up with some snuggles! These three were all smiles, and we had the chance to talk, catch up on life, and laugh together.The chill in the air also happened to be perfect excuse to bust out this adorable, little pumpkin hat (where can I get one for myself…or a couple of beagles?!).
The fall colors may all be gone now, but the Watson family can continue to enjoy them all winter (and then some) with their new wall art and family photo prints!
