Coen is one! To celebrate, we met at Forest Park in St. Louis, MO, on a beautiful summer morning. We took photos of the family together, and Coen with each parent individually. This is what I generally do in all of my family photo sessions!

It is always such a wonderful thing to get to watch my newborn clients grow into toddlers, and even big kids as time passes. Coen was one of our Covid babies – we could not do a typical newborn session due to Covid restrictions. However, we did do newborn photos outdoors, and I am happy to say that those are still some of my favorite newborn photos to this day. We had beautiful light, and it was something unique from the typical studio and lifestyle newborn photos we offer.

Coen is such a smily little guy. He was a little shy at first, but soon warmed up, and then was such a ham for the rest of the session! I can’t think of this photo session without getting a big smile on my face!
