Last weekend I had the pleasure of photographing TWO amazing families at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois. Yes, that’s a bit of a drive from the good old Champaign-Urbana area you’ll usually see me around–but I’ve still got family and friends that are spread across the Chicago Suburbs. And I’m always humbled and overjoyed when they ask me to photograph their families!! I have known this Mom since we were 13 years old 🙂 We officially became friends over a flute duet we played together in 7th grade, and the rest is history! It’s been a true joy to have her by my side as a friend for all of these years…through school, relationships, getting married and starting our families. Speaking of families—this one is super adorable. Big Sister was a great listener and did a fantastic job smiling and posing for her photos! Little Brother was having a bit of a rough day with some teething, but he was a trooper through it all and we got some great family shots as well as some of just him.
And the gardens at Cantigny Park are simply gorgeous! It’s been years since I visited–and I’d love to just take a morning or afternoon this summer and explore the entire grounds!
Without further ado, here is a lovely taste of some of the beautiful photos we created together!!
If you’d be interested in creating your own amazing family portraits, please get in touch! I’d love to meet you and make you smile 🙂
