Just sharing one for now from last night’s session, but I thought this was a perfect image to highlight these brothers. Aren’t they just model perfect? Well, the whole family is like that! Seriously beautiful family. This family spends a lot of time together on their boat during the summer and they wanted that highlighted, so we headed over to their dock at the Alton Marina for their customized portrait session before they had to put away their boat for the winter. Luckily for us, we had unseasonably warm weather last night, which really worked to our advantage – especially since we were on the water. We got a wide variety of images from the boys hanging out on the docks, fishing, fun shots on the “perfect” hill, portraits in tall grass glowing in the evening setting sun and then a series of images with the Alton bridge as our backdrop. It was such a fun session and I can’t wait to share more images, but for now…just this one. Enjoy the sneak peek!
I just got back from visiting my bosom buddy in Kansas and I’m missing her already. We met in high school, went to college together and have been there for each other throughout life’s ups and downs. She is someone that I can completely just be myself and be the goober that I can be from time-to-time. It was great seeing her family, staying up late having girl talk, exploring her home area, antiquing and of course the laughing! It was such an honor to capture their FIRST family portraits! Enjoy the sneak peek! xoxo
The Autumn colors are finally in full swing and I’m in HEAVEN! This is my favorite time of year. Crisp days, beautiful landscapes filled with rich vibrant colors and the falling leaves that rain down like gems cascading from the trees. I am so thankful for this time of year and that we actually have all four seasons in the Midwest. Certainly not the case for everyone in the world. Thank you mother nature for all the beauty you bestow on us.
