I started fall family sessions again last weekend and it just reminds me how much I love this time of year!  I love the brisk weather, the leaves changing, fires in the fireplace, warm sweaters, and pumpkin spice smells.  It’s definitely my favorite time of the year and I love doing family sessions during this time.

This sweet family did a quick 30 minute session with me last week.  Little brother was all about the session but big sis wasn’t too thrilled.  We made it work though and I think we came out with some great captured memories.

Such a sweet family photo


Quick photo with bit sis and Mom.


How cute is this little one!  Such a happy baby!


I always love a good father/son pic!



Welcome to our 10 on 10 Blog Circle!  I am always grateful for my days when I need to take photos for my 10 on 10.  It always forces me to get that camera and take photos for the fun of it. This week we’re out of school so we headed for the lake!  My Mom lives on a small lake in IN and my nieces and sister usually come over and we make a day of it.  This day we had a few activities planned like a water balloon fight and using some of the color packets we got from the color run in Chicago last week.  It was a fun day that ended in me watching my niece play softball.

We saw a version of this photo online and I wanted one of my kids and their cousin.


This kid loves to do the “peace” sign or maybe it’s bunny ears?


Water balloon fight!  I highly recommend “bunch o balloons”.  We filled up 60 balloons in less than 5 minutes.


My kids are obsessed with the faces on snapchat.




The goggles were their idea to not get color in their eyes.


Getting the color off!


Both my nieces had games this night.

These past few months have been busy, busy, busy! I started a new job taking photos of newborns at the hospitals last fall and have really been enjoying it!  I haven’t been doing as many personal sessions but I did squeeze in a few 1st Communion sessions recently.  This one is my neighbor and I have known her since she was a teeny tiny baby.  I was thrilled to do her photos!


All of the photos above were done in my small studio in the basement.  We wanted to do a few outside so we braved the cold temps and wind and went for it!


I also went to the service and snapped a few for them there.  I loved this family pic!



This photo shoot was scheduled on a Tuesday morning and it was supposed to be cold and a little rainy during our time slot.  Thankfully the rain held off for most of the shoot and it was overcast so it made for the perfect backdrop for some wonderful fall color photos.  This family was so fun to shoot!  The kids were very lively and having a blast with their parents.



This photo session was like a dream!  The lighting was absolutely gorgeous during this time of the day.  I timed it just right for us to hit the “golden” hour and it was beautiful.  The family also just happens to all look like models and are very photogenic  It was a great day!
