St Charles Family Photographers | The Ratcliff Family
I always look forward to autumn. I don’t always look forward to what comes after, like the cold breeze today that makes me want to never again leave the warmth of my house. But, there is something special as the leaves begin to change and the weather slightly cools and families and friends gather around fires in backyards to make s’mores. It’s a great time to set aside a portion of the day for family photos. In the moment it can seem like no one wants to get together to take them, after the fact though, years later, when little ones have grown out of their cute little boots, no one regrets taking just a part of one day for a few lasting memories.
I know this is true with the Ratcliff family. The Ratcliff children got together and booked this fall family portrait session in Historic St Charles as an anniversary present for their parents. What a great gift! I also love how they chose an autumn inspired color palette of mustard, cranberry, and grey for their outfits. They all look so great together without looking overly matchy matchy.
