Being this many years into a career, you typically don’t get to experience many “firsts”. But this session was a first for me.
When this mama wanted their family photo session done at the St. Louis Zoo, I was very excited about the idea. We were both traveling into town for the Thanksgiving Holiday and this iconic St. Louis location was a favorite place for her growing up. She wanted to capture new family memories with their little babe, bringing past and present together.
It was a chilly day outside but this beautiful location offers lots of indoors reprieve from the elements and create gorgeous backdrops to create fun memories. We wandered through the aquarium, the herpetarium, saw the seals, birds and enjoyed a few moments here and there wandering through the outdoor park. It was a fun day, a great experience and I look forward for the chance to do it again.
Here are a few of my favorite shots!
