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!

How stunning is this Mokena Senior session?  Miss G was an absolute natural and her blue eyes were mesmerizing.  It was the perfect night for a session and her outfits were on point.

I’ve watched her grow up from the time she was just a toddler and it’s hard to believe that she’s off to college now.  I know she’ll do great things.

The University of Missouri is lucky to have you!

It doesn’t get much sweeter than spending my mornings with newborns, especially ones like Miss A at her Naperville Newborn Session.  I was dying over her cheeks and perfect pouty lips and made sure to get plenty of detail shots of them.

Mom requested lots of purple and I was more than happy to provide.  Her other request was to incorporate a blanket that was handmade by her Great Grandma and the second I wrapped it around her she nestled right into it.  This is certainly one session that I had a hard time narrowing down my favorites and I know her parents did as well!
