Several months ago I contributed some things to a fund raising silent auction held by Crave café. They needed to replace windows and get air conditioning. I’m glad to say they were successful, especially with the way this summer has been. One of the things I donated was a gift certificate for a free session. Last month the winner got a hold of me. They only had a small window of time to have the photos done with their busy schedule or we would need to wait until next year. Luckily we were able to work things out and meet up.
The photo shoot was a nice little one-year anniversary gift to themselves. I thought it was a great idea. After engagement / wedding photos most people wait until they have kids before they get professional family portraits done. This was a really nice excuse to get out and enjoy each other’s company all while ending up with nice photos.
We started at Forest Park and ended up in the Central West End for ice cream. I really enjoyed hanging out with these two. They did a great job being comfortable and letting their personalities show through, even with a camera hovering over them. There’s obviously a lot of love there.
