"Amber and I were talking about her family photos. She wanted something different and something that was meaningful to her family at this time. We definitely wanted to go for a lifestyle approach. We were talking about Ikea and our love for the store. She mentioned how often she goes and how it's a date night for them! Her and her husband enjoy the store; and ever since we got Ikea here in St. Louis, I have been DYING to photograph there. I finally got my chance - this family is wayyyy beyond adorable!! It was like a light bulb went off! We both knew that was where we need to do the shoot! Steven (Amber's husband) thought we were crazy when he found out I was there to photograph their shopping outing. But, he enjoyed himself during the shoot. Getting in the cart for some photos made it fun for him! Ezra (the 7 month old) definitely ate up the camera. Anytime it was on him he was all smiles!!! Especially when he was in the cart and we did some of just him. He couldn't stop being mesmerized by the camera!
There were a few passer by-ers who were like, "Oh! you're doing a shoot? How cute!!" The day was pretty perfect! Everyone was very nice and ice cream was the PERFECT ending to the session!
Amber is an Ikea fanatic! She's constantly shopping there or browsing for new ideas for their home. It was so special for her because it's a place they go oftenâ€”they cherish their family date nights at Ikea. Also Ikea didn't mind at all!"
