I loved taking this family’s photos at beautiful Lilacia Park in Lombard, IL! Lilacia Park is well known for its stunning display of spring flowers (go in late April/early May!) and its holiday light display in December, but it is a gorgeous garden the rest of the year as well!
These sweet brothers are SO well-behaved and friendly! The elder brother pushed through his fears of bees and got some beautiful photos with his brother next to the late summer flowers.
Summer Family Photos at Lilacia Park in Lombard, IL
I love this sweet little guy with the zinnias!
The best part is this hug from his brother was TOTALLY unprompted!
What a beautiful family! Also, I love how the mom’s skirt coordinates with the bright flowers!
There are so many gorgeous late summer blooms at this park. I know many clients love fall colors, but I’m really partial to the beautiful greens and flowers of spring and summer!
This beautiful family with beautiful sunshine!! 🤩
I love a classic black and white shot. I feel that without color you tend to focus on the emotions in the photo a bit more!
One of my favorite shots – unprompted they held hands and walked together. 🙂 There is probably some metaphor to be made about these two little guys being part of each others’ lives for a long, long time, and how family sticks together. 🙂
The sun was coming and going – but that allowed us to use more background locations and get a greater variety of looks!
This series of images is so cute!
One of my favorite shots from the day! How cute are these two, and the flowers are just the icing on top!
Thank you for braving the bees of the rudbeckias for this beautiful shot!
The two boys love cars and trains, so we had a brief pause to watch the trains from the park! It’s fun to capture a few candid shots to round out the gallery!
