Thunderstorms can’t stop this Family Portrait! {Wentzville Family Photographer}

Back in late winter, I was asked to donate to the Immanuel, Lutheran School auction in Wentzville, Missouri.  I was happy to help their school and church with my donation of an outdoor family session, a beautiful frame and portrait credit (so the family can fill the frame)!   I often wait months before hearing from auction winners.  Well as it turns out, they are long-time friends of my husband’s family.  I was thrilled to find out they won the auction!

I think they first contacted me during one of our crazy winter snowstorms.  Now that it’s blazing hot and mid-summer, it’s hard to remember back to those cold snowy days.  We photographed this session on a day when the St. Louis area was under severe weather alerts and experiencing crazy thunderstorms.  Thankfully, the rain held out until after I left.  Later on that evening (after my next photography assignment), the heavens opened up and everyone ran indoors for cover.

Ok, this next one is just a crazy out-take.  I thought the kids would giggle when they saw it.

And not to be outdone… Here’s one of just the guys.

I like to take some solo portraits of each of the kids.  I love, love, love the laugh of this young man!  He told me afterwards when I was about to drive to the next engagement that he didn’t get to pose exactly how he wanted to.  I hope he forgives me for missing his cue.  I think he was having a good time anyway.

And now his handsome big brother…

I love photographing outdoors at any time of the year, but there’s just something about summer evenings that make me smile.  I hope these images made you smile too.

We are scheduling outdoor family portrait sessions through the fall.  (Yes, there are already fall sessions on my calendar).  If you want portraits of your family, call the studio today to set up the appointment.  The office line is 636-947-5956.  Want to get a head-start on your Christmas cards?  I can design a family photo card from your session images too!

Thanks for visiting.
