Sunrise Meadow Family Portraits | Oak Park Family Photographer | Forest Park, IL

Family of five walking in Miller Meadow in River Forest, IL

Prepare for a family portrait avalanche, because I had far too many favorites to narrow down! This family graciously let me choose the location and time of day for their family portraits and I was so pleased because I’ve had this location in mind for awhile now! I love how we were able to definitely get a fall palette and yet achieve a bright and airy look. They had the sweetest kids and such kind personalities. What a dream to work with them!

Children permitting I love to do some shots of mom and dad…I mean, sometimes the last time they had a good photo of the two of them was on their wedding day!

Sometimes it’s the little details that get me – like this daughter’s tiny arm holding onto Dad.
