Joliet Children’s Photographer and a Day of Mentorship

Yesterday’s session was tied up with my day of mentoring one-on-one with the Orlando’s delightful Sarah Bray .  Thank you Sarah for travelling up from the south SOUTH and hanging out for a day with me.  I hope you take away all the good stuff that I had lined up for you! 

Back to the session (only one of four that I did not get rained out on in the past seven days!)…I had the pleasure of photographing Faith’s (and Shawn’s) beautiful kids yesterday late morning.  They were wonderful!  So fun!  So happy!  So silly!  I loved meeting them and having the opportunity to see Faith after, I don’t know, what’s it been?  20 years almost??  🙂  So without further delay – some of the most adorably fun kids this side of Chicago!

    Mare, these children are gorgeous. I LOVE the moment you captured there in that last shot. If those were my children (who aren’t nearly as cooperative!) I’d have that blown up as a huge canvas on my mantle. I love it “THAT” much!!! I bet their mom is going to be THRILLED with these!!!

    I have to point out how amazing that second shot is – the colors, the way the plaid of his shorts goes with the brickwork behind him…love it.
