Families like this are why I love doing what I do. Clients like this awesome family are such a pleasure to hang out with for an afternoon and they make my work barely seem like work at all.
I send out a pre-session questionnaire to all potential clients. One of the fields asks for information on the personalities of the participating children, so that I can be prepared for little one’s that are slow to warm up or painfully shy. When Mrs. G sent back their questionnaire and said that her oldest two were “very outgoing”, I couldn’t help but think that may not be the case when a stranger has a big ol’ scary camera up in their face…but boy, oh boy was I wrong! These children were amazing! So outgoing, so talkative, so friendly. We had such a fun time out at Axehead Lake in Park Ridge — from the moment this family got out of their car until the end of their session, we had such a fun time. I am so incredibly grateful that I got to spend time with this sweet family. What a joy!
These are some of my favorites from their session. Enjoy!
Gosh, look at that little man’s face. Such a crack up! So much personality!
Could this little princess possibly be any sweeter??! She was so incredibly sweet and you can just tell she has a kind, beautiful heart.
Towards the end of our session we had some yummy golden hour light. Gorg!
Sweet, sweet baby boy.
I just love this photograph. Such a tender moment (not to mention that gorgeous light!).
This is baby Harland…he is NOT impressed.
And of course we had to get one of just mom and dad, because they’re too lovely not to have an equally lovely picture of.
