I don’t get to hold child or family portrait sessions at the St. Louis ZOO that often, but when I heard that it was this lil’ man’s stomping grounds, we just had to go there to capture him right before his second birthday. I had the opportunity to capture his little brother at the first of the year for newborn portraits, but this time, Dean was the star! He has so much energy and just makes people smile. His parents are super lucky to have two laid back boys!!! I’m always impressed with the way this family interacts together and how well behaved their boys are. Dean’s grandparents were in town to help celebrate his birthday, so of course we had to get some family portraits with everyone. Such a loving group! I can’t wait to photograph Dean’s baby brother again later this summer. I’m sure Dean will get to show off his skills some more in front of the camera for me on that occasion as well! Enjoy the sneak peek!
