It is ALWAYS a treat to have returning clients, especially ones as sweet as these as this family who you may recall from their winter maternity photos and winter extended family photos. 🙂 So when they reached out, asking if I’d be their fall family photographer in Riverside, IL, I jumped at the chance!
It was a gorgeous, sunny, WARM day!
…as well as my first opportunity to meet their sweet new baby! ?
His big brother is SO loving! When little L got upset and cried, M teared up, too!
Getting ready to throw a BIG HANDFUL OF LEAVES!

M got a few sweet tickles from mama!
The Holy Grail, right here!! NO PHOTOSHOP, just adorable boys and their dog!
One of my favorite shots of the whole day – I love the joy this mama takes in parenting her two little ones!
Sweet, smiley guy! I was lying on my tummy to get this shot with Dad blocking the sunshine on my lens! It worked perfectly!
I just love his expression as he thinks serious thoughts about the stick he found!
We were lucky enough to have a family member with us to help out with the kids and dog, which allowed us to sneak away for a final, beautiful portrait of Mom and Dad. 🙂 I am in LOVE with the soft, dreamy light they got at this meadow!
It was a true pleasure to see this sweet family and photograph them again! Thank you for continuing to choose me to capture your family portraits and love!
