    Im loving these!! Can’t wait to see the rest!!

This gorgeous family was out at one of my favorite secret locations in the southwest suburbs of Chicago this past weekend.  We will celebrate the end of November light within these sneak peeks, one of my favorite & most underrated times of the year to photograph.

I cannot wait until this family sees the rest of these photos, I think they will be thrilled with the gorgeousness we captured during our (short) time together.  What a great session to create a wall portrait and a number of images for a wall display gallery of their family.

October was a little insane around here and the fall colors came much later in the month than usual (thanks in part to our glorious Chicago weather!).  Part of our insanity included our young dog, only 2+ years old, becoming very ill and needing hospitalization as well as critical care to nurse her back to health.  THANKFULLY she is on the mend but it was a very scary time for us and I realized, in the midst of the insanity, that I really didn’t have any recent great photos of the kids with the dogs.

I had a weekend evening free and took the kids and dogs out and not only accomplished some pretty great images but I think that I may have my holiday card photos.

Yes, a photographer who actually has her Holiday photos done BEFORE December 10th.  By George!  It’s a miracle!!  🙂  And while the dog is on the mend and is almost to her old antics at the time I didn’t know the outcome and was worried sick for our sick baby.  Thankfully and hopefully most of the October drama is behind us and we are onto bigger and better things.

Here are a few images from our brief little session.  Thanks to my kids, truly truly “photographer’s kids” for putting up with me.  For all these years AND for doing this mini mini session with me and their BFFs.

Unfortunately I was unable to accomplish getting photos of the girls with BOTH dogs (I was already begging for a miracle of health for one of the dogs and didn’t want to push it with more miraculous requests!) but I did get images from this moment, from this time and knowing now that this too had passed I am grateful that I was able to capture these moments in time.

At the end of the day that’s all I can hope to accomplish in my usual job capturing Suburban Chicago family photos: photographing the precious moments, perfect or imperfect as they may be.  🙂

Opportunity for fall family photos in late fall 2016

YES!  There’s still time to create some exquisite fall family photos in Chicago and the suburbs this Fall 2016!

I know we’ve had a late start to the fall color but because the leaves are holding on and the weather is exquisite we have this amazing opportunity to create some great images of you, your family and your kids (and maybe get your dog(s) in on the photos as well).

Give us a call if you are seeking some beautiful images of your family for your home, your office or even for gifts and Holiday card exchanges.  Our clients always report that their Holiday card images always get compliments and are the talk of their friend groups!  😉

Our number is 815-603-8450  Our availability includes a couple of weekend time slots that we just opened up and a few weekday shoots.  Give us a call today before Fall 2016 is just a memory……and you don’t have any photos for grandma or Aunt Sally when they ask about your family around the Holiday table.

I so very much enjoyed meeting the A Family this weekend.  We couldn’t have picked a better weekend for fall family photography.  The day was warm and the colors are still holding on.  I can’t believe the extended fall leaves season we are having!!
Thank you A Family!  It was great meeting and photographing your family.  I hope you enjoy your sneak peek.
