This family just makes me soooooo happy! I have been so incredibly lucky in this journey to watch both of these kids grow up in front of my camera lens.
Such a beautiful time of year for Senior Portraits. Had a lot of fun working with Ema this afternoon. Enjoy this teaser for now, more to come soon!
A giant thank you to all of the amazing families I got to work with this weekend. This years Fall Mini-Sessions were a giant success and I look forward to sharing a lot more in the coming days.
Being able to, and quite honestly having the privilege, to watch this family grow up year after year makes what I do a dream come true.
Nothing makes me happier than having the chance to tell a family in the middle of a shoot... "Time for some funny faces!!"
Photographing these two is such a perfect way to start out my Labor Day! There will be more to come from this set.
Have a great Labor Day everyone!
Gina is a soon to be high school graduate from Crystal Lake South who is excited to be heading off the University of Iowa in the Fall. One of my favorite parts of this job is getting to meet new people and to learn new things. I like to consider myself a sports junkie, but this shoot allowed me to learn about a sport I knew very little about. Gina is a member of the Crystal Lake Rowing Club and was gracious enough to answer EVERY SINGLE ONE of my rowing questions, as silly or simple as they might have been. Enjoy the photos and be sure to leave a comment below wishing Gina good luck on her future endeavors!
I had so much fun meeting up with one of my favorite families a couple weekends ago. These two kids are so much fun to be around. I have photographed Colton's sister for almost 3 years now, and each and every time she is more and more intrigued by the camera. It looks as if she has been teaching her brother a couple of tricks because he has needed no warming up, his smiles were present from the first shot!
Most of you will see this post and think, "Isn't this old?" The answer is yes. The answer is an embarrassing yes. I was doing a little clean up in my photo folders and realized I never submitted this blog post back in the fall. So here it is, a beautiful Autumn engagement photo shoot being posted in the middle of Spring!
