Kappel Family // larson park // st. louis, mo

I recently photographed this awesome family, with three kiddos (all individually unique). The youngest was super outgoing and silly. She reminded me a little bit of myself as a child. Her name is Annie, which is what I went by as a kid. I'm pretty sure I told her Mom numerous times how funny and adorable I thought Annie was (so I must be funny and adorable- er was at one point?!). I, like Annie, am also the youngest of three kiddos, with a big brother and big sister. 

Annie clearly was the outgoing, silly child. Her energy was infectious. She LOVED to be center stage. She was unique and colorful. I think birth order is so interesting, and I'm sure there are a lot of youngest children like Annie... outgoing and silly, refusing to let their voice go unheard. I love it! 

Emma and Sam were so patient and sweet with their younger sister Annie. They let her be in the middle, in the front, on center stage. They were laughing at her funny antics most of the time, too. Like it was just another scene in their movie called life. Emma was the patient older sister. The way the light was bouncing off of her was so beautiful. Sam was a silly one himself, but also had this old-soul element. He was super comfortable in front of the camera, and did a crazy back bend. You kids rock. What a fun family!
