I had such a great time exploring Tower Grove Park with this wonderful family! Their son could not be any cuter, he was such a ham, cheesing for the camera and posing! Family sessions can be so much fun. I love how they played with the leaves at the end, totally embracing fall.
When did kids birthdays become so fabulous?! Photographing this little cutie's first birthday celebration was a dream! Everywhere I looked there were adorable decor details and smiling happy faces. PSA: Greenhouses are PERFECT places for photoshoots/special occasions! The lighting is always gorgeous, the plants make for a lovely background, and under a glass roof - you can have a fabulous time rain or shine! Beyond the amazing location and decor, everyone had an amazing time celebrating little Winter Glenn. When I photograph occasions like this I'm usually a photo-ninja - inconspicuously moving around - camera at the ready - watching for laughing faces and sweet moments of interaction between guests. There was no shortage of sweet moments at this party. I love the thought that one day WG will look at these images and remember her first birthday with all her loved ones!
