Outdoor Spring Family Photos, Missouri Botanical Gardens

I can't even think of anything to write that would adequately introduce this family, so I'm going to let the pictures do most of the talking here. This couple is so loving and vibrant.

And their son is so fun and smart (I don't know if you can tell from the picture, but trust me, he is).

Much like their second son.

And their third son.

And their fourth son!

And you know who is having a really great time with those four big brothers? 

This girl.

When you're fifth in line but the first girl in the family, you're in a fairly unique position - you might as well start having fun with the photo shoots now!

Showing up for a photo shoot can be a challenge. Showing up for a photo shoot with kids can feel like a marathon (or several rounds of boxing). Showing up for an outdoor photo shoot as a family of seven with everyone looking as absolutely beautiful as this? That's the stuff supermoms are made of.

There are few places in St. Louis more breathtaking than the Missouri Botanical Gardens, especially in the Spring when flowers bloom around every corner. It's great to be able to capture a little of the feel of the Gardens in the pictures along with the family!

So, just in case you were wondering, the answer is yes, a successful photo session with a large family is definitely possible!

Even if your baby only wants to be on the ground exploring nature for every possible minute. :)
