Fall family portraits are one of my favorite, St. Louis, pastimes. As a midwesterner my whole life, one thing that continues to take my breath away is the beauty of the changing seasons. I’m a fan of change, and refreshing and renewal. Maybe not as much as we had this year, but it has been an underlying comfort that the seasons don’t need us to fill their purpose. Spring came while we were shut in. Summer was on time while we woke up to a changing world every morning. And fall is almost here. A new season will present itself, with or without what we deem as normal.
It is an honor to help tell your family’s story.
To capture you as you are in this moment.
To catalogue the growth as one generation turns into the next.
These candid, storytelling moments remind us how far we have come…
how strong we are…
And how precious it all is.
Thank you to all of our Beautiful Mess Families, who continue to come back year after year. Your support is incredible.
