Fall happens to be one of my favorite seasons as an Oak Brook Photographer.  I also love when sessions involve families as close to my heart as this one.  This was the first time we’ve had the whole family together for a shoot and I knew that Graue Mill would be the perfect location.

There’s so many spots that make for the perfect back drops and kids love exploring the area.  I always look forward to meeting clients here.

Where’s all my Chicago Bear’s fans at??  We know that Mr R is and he posed so perfectly on the football making me one proud Chicago Newborn Photographer.

He pretended not to be tired when I got to his session, but the minute he was in my arms I used my baby whispering skills and he was a perfect angle for the whole session.  I was so happy to deliver a beautiful gallery to his parents.  I can’t wait to watch this future quarter back grow up!

Mokena Family sessions at Hickory Creek in the Fall make for the perfect backdrop.  The colors are always on point and when you combine that with a 75 degree day and adorable cousins my job is a cake walk.

The D Family decided this year that not only did they want to update their family pictures, but they also wanted to included their niece and nephew.  I was in love with the idea and so happy with how it all turned out.  The kids we’re all so sweet and up for anything.  It was fun just watching them interacting and being their goofy selves.

They don’t get much more handsome than Mr P!  He really made my job as a Lockport Newborn Photographer easy.  He was super awake when I got there and I took full advantage of capturing adorable personality.  I love being able to capture those awake moments just as much as the sleepy ones.  As soon as we were ready for some sleepy, posed shots he was more than happy to cooperate.

Since his Daddy is part of our fire family I had to put him in his Dad’s helmet.  It’s always a favorite shot for fire families.  And the 101 Dalmatians on his nursery walls were all hand painted by Mom!  He certainly is a lucky little guy, especially to have two big sisters to watch over him.

Welcome to the family P!

Mr C is one of the strongest guys that I know and it was such a privilege as a Fort Wayne photographer.  His strength knows no boundaries and he’s shown this all his life.  From a young age he was diagnosed with scoliosis and shortly after his Mom and I talked about how we would do a photo shoot with every single cast and brace he’s ever worn.  Seven years later here we are….

I couldn’t help getting a little teary eyed as we lined everything up and remembering all the special duct tape that he picked for every new cast and the excitement every time one was taken off and he was given a few days to swim for hours in the tub.  He absolutely loves being in the water and receiving his “bye bye” cast pictures from the tub is one of my favorite things.

This scoli warrior still has some more hurdles to get through, but he doesn’t let it get him down as you can see from his smiles.  I think he was just excited to be taking these pictures!

So much love for you Carson!
