Living in St. Louis has it's challenges when it comes to the weather. Three Saturdays ago was no exception when I was scheduled to take photos of the Hendricks family in Forest Park.
The day started off chilly but sunny with a nice mix of big puffy clouds but by 1 pm it was cloudy and actually sleeting. Seemed as if getting the photos taken before the leaves were gone was going to be impossible. But hey, it's St. Louis right? We waited a bit longer and as the time arrived for our shoot the sleet was gone, the clouds separated and the sun came back out raising the temperature just enough to make it bearable for everyone.
We headed to Forest Park and set out to capture some memories as the last of Fall's golden leaves clung to their branches. The kids laughed and ran about while Dad and Mom chased them through the leaves. It may have been a little cold but everyone was enjoying being out in the crisp air in the beautiful park surroundings. And by the time the sun set it was a wrap - and just in time. The cold had finally gotten to the youngest as he simply couldn't hold still for yet another photo.
Thanks to Brian and Maggie for allowing me to play a part in capturing their family members as we head into Winter in St. Louis. The day was perfect after all and I couldn't have asked for a better setting or better subjects. I hope you enjoy your photos for many years to come.
