I truly don’t think that I have ever laughed so much as I did at this recent child and family session here in a gorgeous park in St. Louis, Missouri.   While my newborn sessions are extremely systematic as I am posing a sleeping newborn throughout the duration of the session, family sessions are about documenting the relationships and getting to know the members of the family through the lens of my camera.  While taking some individual shots of sweet Tatum during this session, her mom started telling me about how Tatum LOVES to dance to all kinds of music and I, of course, had to witness these moves.  Once she started “feeling” the rhythm, there was no stopping this baby.  After grabbing a few still shots for her gallery, I had to document this with my camera as well…

I dare you to watch this video and not smile.  Seriously, try it.  And make sure the volume is on.

 

A few gorgeous shots from Tatum’s gallery…
