Family Photoshoot in St. Louis

>> Wednesday, October 13, 2010

Do you ever have one of those days were it feels like the stars are aligned just for you? Well the Friday we were in St. Louis was totally one of those days for me, and I loved it.

Jackson and I slept late, got dressed, and I grabbed a coffee to go. {Mr.'s law firm has an office in St. Louis, so he woke up and went to work every morning.}  We picked up some flowers and headed to my grandma {and grandpa's} to put flowers on their grave.

Up until this day, the weather in St. Louis was unusually hot and humid. But, on Friday, Fall was finally in the air. I drove with the windows down and told Jackson stories about his great-grandparents.

I arranged beautiful red roses in a fall bouquet for each of them and Jackson played with a bird named Wade. It felt good to shed a few tears and then Jackson and I were on our way.

Did I mention how wonderful the weather was?!? As we drove with the windows down and the music playing, I decided to run into the mall to see if I could find a long sleeve shirt for the football game later that night. And I did, first stop, perfect black shirt!

So, Jackson and I headed back to my sister's house to nap and get cleaned up for the game. I sent my sister a text telling her that I wanted to get some family pictures when she got off of work, outside, in this gorgeous weather...

My sister took it one step further and brought her good teacher friend home from school with her. This friend of her's also happens to be an amazing St. Louis photographer! See how the stars are aligning???

I grabbed my guys and we loaded up in my sister's car and headed to downtown Eureka for a little family photo session. The sky was bluer than blue, my boys were cuter than cute and now I have a picture perfect memory of my picture perfect day!

Thank you Katie for capturing us at our best, I can't wait to have a new house to cover the walls with these pictures!!!
