Luca's 3rd Bday

I was there the day he was born.
I can not believe this little baby is THREE years old.

Someone please tell him to stop growing up?
Happy 3rd Birthday Luca!

Summer in St. Louis

I took a long weekend recently to visit my favorite seminary family. And of course, we had to do a family photoshoot!
We took the whole clan to the Arch. It was quite the learning experience for me as a photographer. Figuring out how to get the whole arch AND still be able to see everyone's faces was really a challenge. I think we got a few good ones and I will definitely be begging them to let me try again before they leave in a year.
For the first time in about 2 years it went really smoothly. Probably because all of the kiddos are old enough to "Stand Still, Look, Smile!" at the same time!
The kiddos were in especially good moods and played along when we tried different poses and ideas.
This series was absolutely too adorable not to share all of them! Between Matthias with his hands in his pockets and the girl giggly faces - I can't handle the cuteness!


 And in an effort to get myself in the pictures more often, we got in one last picture with me, the kiddos and the Arch.
I love being their "Aunt Rachie"!
