Cutler Family

“The attitude you have as a parent is what your kids will learn from more than what you tell them. They don’t remember what you try to teach them. The remember what you are.” ~Jim Henson

This morning I’m wrapping up spring mini sessions with my last family from our Forest Park vintage Sofa session. Meet the Cutlers. Such an awesome group of happy people!

Another shout out to Shades of Blue Interiors. Rachel from Shades of Blue is so easy to work with and her eye for style and design is impeccable. She styled our family picnic mini session and painted this sofa for this session. Everything she does is exquisite.

“Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That’s why we call it the present” ~A.A. Milne

Speaking of gifts, I have had the pleasure of photographing this family for a few years and it is just such a blessing to be able to see them over the seasons and watching these cute boys grow! The Geroski’s are a great family, and I’m excited to show you their mini session pictures today! (The vintage sofa in used for this session was refinished by Shades of Blue Interiors and is available to area photographers for rent!)

Sorry for the delay on the sneaks folks! It seems every spring I come down with some cold, this one has been a little harder on me than usual the last few days. Not sure what that’s all about, but I’m coming back to life and still super excited to get some more of these adorable pictures out there. Here’s another sneak from the combined efforts of myself and Rachel at Shades of Blue Interiors. (Photographers! She has lots of great props like this for you to rent! Give her a call, she’s awesome to work with!)
This picture is of the Shaw family children who got all dolled up for their mini session, such beautiful people right there!

It’s time to share the next session from our Vintage Picnic spring mini portrait sessions, styled by Shades of Blue Interiors! The Billhartz family was so excited to have their pictures taken and at Tower Grove Park, where Fifteen years ago Greg and Jennie had their engagement pictures taken!
