Rhonda called our office one day in a panic because she had been looking for photographer and was not having any success. Her whole family was going to be gathering in St. Louis so it was very important to get a family photo taken. They live all in different states so for them to be together was great! She knew there was only one day and really only one time that would work for them…guess what we had it available – well at least within 30 minutes of the time she wanted. It was meant to be. She was thinking forest park because it had many options and it was easy for them to locate since they were not from the area. This worked because our other sessions were in forest park so we just stayed there for Rhonda. After we got everything set with the date and time then she decided it was a good time to tell us the family included 9 boys under the age 14. She mentioned it like I might back out of the session, heck no, this is going to be so much fun! When they arrived we started talking about how we usually pose the family using some chairs or stools. Rhonda was so easy going that the thought of a posy posy photo was not her family. She wanted to be more casual so we just grouped together and started off with the silly boy jokes to get everyone to laugh. We even got them all up on a log which of course they were super excited to climb all over. When we were done Rhonda couldn’t leave without giving us a hug because we had made this process so great for her and the family. I remember hearing the frantic voice over the phone which had now changed to the happiest voice ever as she thanked us over and over! It’s moments like this that make the harder days totally worth it – we create memories and we want them all to be great ones.
