Glowy Meadow Family Portraits | Oak Park Family Photographer | Riverside, IL

What a delight it was to photograph this beautiful family! They are the first friends we made upon moving to Illinois last fall and they’ve been so kind and welcoming. Midwest weather is volatile and changes rapidly – I am so glad we lucked out with warm, SUNNY weather with a hint of fall foliage for this early October photoshoot! These are some of my favorite photos I’ve taken yet. 🙂

A photoshoot with me is definitely not all posed. I will give direction if that makes you more comfortable, but my number one goal is catching genuine emotion and interactions!

Checking out some fun stuff (and probably getting 10,000 burrs in their pants) in the field.

Another of my favorites from this day!

The leaves were just starting to turn. It was shocking to me how over the course of two weeks we went from totally green to almost totally orange in foliage!

Loved the location of beautiful and quaint downtown Riverside, IL! Gorgeous!!

Tune in next week for this family’s blog Part 2! There were so many good ones (and the locations were varied enough) that I wanted to share in two parts. 🙂
