Week 42 ~ Happy Halloween!

Happy Hallows Eve everyone! 
Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, I love the fun, childlike goofiness that the day brings!
Did you dress up? If so, what?

They love Halloween more than I do!

Week 40 ~ Fall day in Tower Grove Park

I met with a sweet little family @ one of my favorite places ~ Tower Grove Park, it has been a landmark in St Louis since 1868. With gorgeous trees, farmers market, revamped fountain, old stone work and a great walking trail it is a perfect place to enjoy a beautiful fall day.

Meet Chloe, her bright eyes and adorable smile could hook anyone!
Mama and her baby. Chloe adores her mommy.
First taste of leaves..nom..nom
Awe, can you say cute family!

It's no wonder where Chloe gets those pretty eyes!
Daddy and his baby girl

 After our session I took a walk around the Farmers Market. 
Vendors with locally grown produce, handmade crafts and yummy treats!
The pumpkin, mascarpone was delightful!
