Fitzpatrick’s St. Louis Family Photography by Roland Studios Photography

St. Louis family photography can be a challenge when faced with a large extended family like Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography recently handled. The main issue you want to avoid is for everything to end up looking the same with each photograph you take of the separate parts of the family.

Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography, St. Louis family photographers, accomplish this by varying the poses of each of the families and then also varying the locations for the different parts of the family. We utilized some land of a family member where the Fitzpatrick’s were holding their family gathering. Anna and Matt Roland spent a portion of the morning scouting the surroundings for appropriate places for the sessions.

We had ten sessions in total to get in and had to find enough locations for variation and then utilize different poses to vary the sessions that used the same locations. Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography met the challenge head on and accomplished all ten sessions with variation so each had their own unique feel to them.

There was also variations when it came to each family. We had full families to photograph, parents separately, each child separately and multigenerational shots. The St. Louis family photography shoot started with a grandmother and her grandchildren, then moved on to a traditional family shoot. With those two down, we moved on to another traditional family portrait followed by pictures of the parents separately and both of the children separately. Then it was back to another traditional family portrait followed by a multigenerational shoot that included ten people! Then we hit a quick senior session followed by the final traditional family portrait of the day.

It was challenging, but rewarding at the same time to see it all come together when seeing the finished product. We hope you enjoy this St. Louis family photography as much as the Fitzpatrick family did!

St. Louis Family Photographers Anna & Matt Roland Photograph the Flynn’s

It was a perfect day for taking photographs when St. Louis family photographers Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography recently had the opportunity to spend time with a great family. The Flynn family made our shoot so much fun and it went by so fast. I wish we had more time to spend together as this family was up for anything!

We started our St. Louis family photography shoot downtown in an industrial area utilizing some cool doorways. We then had some fun on railroad tracks nearby that are in fact still in use (a railroad worker even drove up to let us know this little known fact as well)! After that, we moved to another building/doorway nearby to take some separate shots of mom and dad. With some great shots in hand, Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography took the shoot a little west to the City Gardens. After a few shots there, we finished the St. Louis family photography shoot down by the river at the graffiti wall.

This family looked fierce at times, cute at other times and amazing all the time! They were up for anything St. Louis family photographers Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography wanted to throw at them and probably would have ran around with us all day long taking photographs if they didn’t have things to do later that day. All of them were relaxed and it showed in their photographs. Dad loved to have his photographs taken and had enough hats to make it through an entire day of sessions!

We hope you enjoy these images as much as St. Louis family photographers Anna and Matt Roland of Roland Studios Photography and the Flynn family did!

Nixon’s St. Louis Children’s Photography by Roland Studios Photography

Anna Roland of Roland Studios Photography was contacted recently for a St. Louis children’s photography session. The family brought the eleven-year-old young lady all the way from Houston, TX for Anna to photograph, choosing Roland Studios Photography over a lot of other studios across the country. Nixon’s dad is a prominent businessman in Houston, TX and her mom owns an online pearl retailing website Dragon King Pearls.

In doing the initial St. Louis children’s photography consultation with Nixon and her family, Anna uncovered a love of horses and that Nixon was riding English-Style Equestrian, the kind where the horses jump over obstacles along a predetermined course. Anna took this information and ran with it planning an entire session around the idea of equestrian riding. She contacted several stables in the area, had Nixon and her family bring her riding outfit and went dress shopping for a vision she had of Nixon riding the horse bareback and barefoot in a sundress!

Nixon and her family had purchased a pony recently trained specifically for this style of riding, but it had not been delivered yet, so instead we went with a horse from the stables for the St. Louis children’s photography session. They arrived early in the afternoon on the day of the shoot, and Anna and Matt went to work getting everything ready ensuring she looked great, everything was all set and ready at the stable and we had everything we needed for the shoot.

Anna started the shoot with Nixon on a ride through the property, then found the perfect field for some one-on-one time with the horse we picked out and finished the St. Louis children’s photography session with some portraits of Nixon around the stables. Nixon and her family were extremely pleased with the way these portraits turned out and are looking forward to another session next year!

St. Louis Family Photography for the Brockmans

Had a great first session of the year with the Brockman family on Sunday, February 26, 2012. Anna and I travelled to Laumier Sculpture Park for the first time to meet the Brockmans. We had a tremendous time taking the photos and the kids were just wonderful. The kids were all so excited to have their pictures taken that they were pulling on Mom and Dad to get from one place to the next! Thanks to the family for being such an easy way to open the year with!!! Please take a look at the Portfolio for the full shoot with the Brockmans.
