I had the pleasure and honor of taking some portraits of these amazing young adults for St. Louis Magazine’s Private School Guide. The theme was “conversational”, so many of the photos are intended to look thoughtful, or mid-sentence. These not-quite-kids, but not-quite-adults were pretty amazing, and had some high hopes for the future (themselves, their generation and the world). I wouldn’t be surprised if I see these kids in the headlines one day.

I had the pleasure of spending a dreamy morning with an incredibly sweet family, at Kuhs Estate and farm. We explored this fantastically dreamy site, and even had the chance to meet the horse and donkeys that live in the barn! There was so much to explore, but four little legs were pretty tired by the end of our session. Emmett and Monty were such troopers throughout the morning, and definitely had a blast exploring the tiered garden…. along with hanging out with the donkeys. I noticed at one point, how incredibly sweet and gentle Mom and Dad were with their boys. They spoke so gently to them, with so much love. The feeling you leave with your children will be with them forever. My Mother had this same temperament, and I strive for it every day. I admire you both for this amazing energy that you carry within your family!
It reminded me of a quote by Maya Angelou:
“I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
Take a look, the photos speak for themselves, as always ;)
