I met up with Stacy, Trevor, Logan, and Cloe Saturday at what is quickly becoming one of my favorite photo locations, Shaw Nature Reserve!
Stacy saw her friend Angie’s photos and just had to book a session with us! We are so glad she did!
Usually during a session, I will have the kiddos say things like “cheese!” or a character from their favorite show, like “Chase!”
Logan, however, was cracking himself up by shouting all things related to poop instead!
I heard things like “cheese ball poop!” and “poop crackers!” But, hey, it got him to smile, so there are no complaints here!
Cloe is our little forest nymph. She saw a tree that Trevor mentioned he bet she could climb … so she did!
Speaking of trees — at the very end of the photo session, Trevor spotted a hawk up in one! It was just sitting there watching us intently.
As we walked back to our vehicles, we saw it dive bomb into the pond to attempt to catch some fish! It was a really cool experience!
Shaw Nature Reserve is 2,400 acres of amazingness. It has trails, bridges, ponds — you name it! I am going to have to update our top St. Louis locations list!
When I first met Stacy, she told me something that I never hear. She said Trevor was just as excited about family photos as she was!
This is unique, because usually it takes a bit of convincing to get Mr. Man on board, but then they always see why it was worth it afterward. This time, there was no battle! We were a “GO!” from our very first meeting!! Thanks, Trevor, for seeing the importance in family photos! You’re the man!
It was so wonderful to meet this family! Here’s to many more family sessions! I love watching as the kiddos grow up!
