Laning Family [Downers Grove Photographer]

As soon as I woke up Saturday morning, I rolled over and opened the weather app on my phone. It said 0% chance of rain for that day, even though it was a very cloudy and overcast day.

I got up, had coffee with my dad (it is always better with someone else!) and started to get ready. I put my rain boot on – not because it was going to rain, but because I was heading to Waterfall Glen for the Laning’s photo session, where I knew I would probably end up in the water!

As I was driving there, it started to mist. Not rain, but a heavy enough mist that I had to turn on my windshield wipers. At that point, I was thinking that I would much rather still be in bed, than driving to a shoot in the rain. I got there, met this adorable family and we started our walk to the waterfall. And then! No more mist! It turned out to be a perfect day for their session.

Me, You, Coffee, and Pictures [Downers Grove Photographer]

Brrrrrrrr, it’s cold out there! I did not want to get out from under those covers this morning. But, the coffee can’t get into my system unless I drag myself down to my kitchen. I’ve joked about having a “coffee bar” on my nightstand…I might not be completely joking about that.

I would love for you to come have a cup of coffee at my house! Bring the kids for a photo shoot and join in for a few if you choose. This type of session would be super relaxed and candid. You could even dress the kiddos in pajamas and bring their favorite blanky or lovey. Shoot me a message and let’s start planning!

Peters Family [Downers Grove Photographer]

I met up with this sweet family in Downers Grove last year, right when the colors of the leaves were just perfect. I can’t wait for them to change this year. It is so close! We started off in the downtown area. I love getting pictures with the buildings and streets to get that urban vibe. Then we ended in Fishel Park, where the leaves on the trees and the ground were stunning.

Towle Family [Downers Grove Family Photographer]

Another year, another opportunity this family gave me to photograph them. For their photos this year, we went to Waterfall Glen in Darien. It was the perfect location for this family of 3 boys. And a photographer’s dream place to shoot at. These guys are troopers! I might have taken the wrong trail to the waterfall, which led us down quite a steep hill! Thank goodness they trusted me enough to keep following me! I think it was all worth it. I’m in love with their images.
