This Naperville Newborn Photographer would like to take note that Momma C has officially been overtaken by boys.  They are certainly cute ones to be taken over by though!  These guys were sure excited to meet their little brother and were very helpful during Mr E’s newborn pictures.  They were definitely on hand to hand me whatever I needed!

Mom had some ideas for their sibling shots, shots that often times end up needing to have kids photo-shopped back in, but what happened with these three was pure magic!  Every shot, every time was just pure and natural.

Mr E was such a sweet little chunk that made my job super easy to just pose away with him.  He is such a lucky guy to be welcomed into a family filled with so much love.  It was such a pleasure spending the morning with the C family.

Frankfort Illinois Family Photographer

Is this not the sweetest time of year? The sun is golden, the late summer flowers are blooming shades of yellow and purple, and the air at night is crisp. These lovely sisters met me in a field of all those wonderful wildflowers for the most perfect sessions.

Fall is here (even though Chicago weather still has yet to get the memo) and I for one am so excited for the change of colors. Looking back I realized that Michelle and Chris’ lovely session was never shared with you! I loved walking around River North and the Gold coast looking for unique architecture and spots for pictures.  Swoon away my friends…chicago-engagement-photographer_0190P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0189P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0188P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0187P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0186P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0185P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0184P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0183P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0182P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0181P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0180P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0179P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0178P I N this to pinterestchicago-engagement-photographer_0177P I N this to pinterest

Time for a Ruby Jane update y’all! What we have been doing has not be creatively fun, but important and fun to see none the less.

First up we had to have the bumper fixed because it must have backed into something years ago. We were lucky enough to find an awesome machine shop in New Lenox with some great guys that were happy to help us out. RAE Tool and Manufacturing Company.

Next up we had a great friend and super talented welder Tommy drive all the way to us to weld a new cross member and reinforce the main frame rails. Thanks Tommy for all your help! And for some wicked welding shots!

Time put some fresh paint on the frame rails to preserve them for another 40 + years.

With this kind of paint, safety comes first.
