Mokena Family Photographer + More :)

Cousins + families this post.  I spent some time photographing one of my fave families from last fall this past weekend (yes I know I’m a bit behind!!).  They had extended family in for the weekend and I did some images for their family. 

Here are a few sneak peeks for the K family – it was so wonderful to see you and your three handsome boys again (I appreciate being entrusted once again with the memory making for your family! xoxo)  and thank you to Judy for bringing everyone together for this occasion.  I can’t wait to dive into this session – we did an awesome job in this incredibly short amount of time – the kids were spot on!  We couldn’t have coached them any better!!

Family Fun!

Brothers – they have gotten so much bigger in our short time apart (especially that little one – he looks like a little boy now!  Baby be gone-it happens too quickly)

Cousins – look @ that crazy sky behind them.  Stunning!


And finally for kicks one of my faves from that day that I must show off!

Speaking of fun, this YouTube is going around and I love it so much.  Life is filled with joy – every momentous occasion should reflect that:


 I love the expressions on the faces of the older family and friends at first.  Sort of all "jigga wha?"  🙂


Thanks for stopping by and seeing what I’m up to.  I’ll be off to St. Louis and taking some time off for a week more to hang out with the kids-this summer seems to be ending too quickly and busy season is looming…will be posting images from STL as well as our trip to South Carolina early next month!

    As a grandma myself, can I just say that I would be completely over the moon if these were my kids? 🙂
