We showed up at Stone park, outside of Bonne Terre, MO. Wandering around before the shoot, we found a great spot by the water and I love the orange brown leaves against the grey stone.  It was chilly and sometimes you have to make a smile happen. It’s cheesey at times, but behind the scenes can be a blast as well. Patrick was bouncing up and down and clapping behind me. (Yes, he claps loud and his first one scared me… 🙂 ) Cue the family – They made it happen! The little one smiled.
