Long story short, I met Lana at the Missouri Art Ed Conference this Spring and she had no choice but to help me out! Little did I know, we would stay connected and plan to shoot her gorgeous family session this summer. This family has got to be the most chill group I have ever met with adventure written all over them! Between little August’s black Band-Aid on his thumb and Saida’s scraped up knees (which I tried my best to edit), I knew this family would be down for anything. Joined by their sweet pup, Uma, we went straight to the backyard of the home Casey and Lana built together, and then meandered on down to the Meramec River so August could get soaking wet! I truly love capturing families without the stuffy posing and fake smiles. This crew made our session so easy and I hope you enjoy!
