the love of family


When I set out to do this session, in the pre-planning stages all I knew I wanted was creek photos and the inspiration for the style color palette. I put out a call to make this session happen at Mastodon Historic State Park and this lovely family answered the call! I couldn't have been happier about this! From the get-go, I knew this family was the family for this session. The Schiehing Family proved to be the perfect family for a session like this.


We started out with the usual family pictures out in the field next to the parking lot. As a St. Louis Family photographer, I like to do more candid lifestyle photoshoots. So, I simply told them where I wanted them and then just gave prompts for them to interact with one another. They were absolutely perfect! I couldn't have asked for a better family, in truth, for this session.


After the shots in the field, we then moved to the creek. This was my first time doing a session, let alone a family session, in a creek and I couldn't be happier with the outcome of it. I am really happy with how the whole session turned out.


Thanks again, Schiehing Family!
