These clients requested their summer family photos in Lindberg Park in Oak Park, IL! Besides the convenience of such a close location for my clients, I love that the Park District of Oak Park works to have an area with native plants at each of their parks! It’s so nice to be able to get the convenience of a manicured, local park, while also getting a bit of wildflowers. 🙂
Talk about a compliment – this client reached out in November 2021 to book her summer 2022 photos!! That was the first time that happened for me, back in my second year of business!
Lindberg Park, Oak Park, IL Family Photos
I love this close up shot of the three ladies! Everyone was so sweet and fun to work with – I really have the best clients!
I love the pretty backlighting and framing with the trees!
This daughter is part of a performing arts group and obliged me when I asked if she’d show off some of her song and dance moves. 🙂 I love capturing my clients’ current interests as it shows off both their personalities and who they are at this moment in time.
Their smiles are so sweet!
I love the greenery at Lindberg Park in Oak Park!! These prairie paths are chock full of gorgeous wildflowers. At this location you can expect pretty yellow wildflowers of various varieties from July through the end of September.
That golden glow with those wildflowers!! I’m in love.
Some pretty portraits of these two in the sunshine!
One awesome benefit of this park? The pathways reflect clean, bright light up onto clients’ faces!
One of my favorite images of the day! The golden glow plus yellow wildflowers is just so cheerful, and you can’t beat that winning smile!
My clients were hoping to recreate a few shots, including a walking shot…
…and a jumping shot of the girls at the end! That’s a wrap! The best part? As the family walked off, I overheard one of the daughters say, “That was SO fun!!”
Here’s what my client had to say!
Kristen was very easy to communicate with to book a date and location for my family photos. She was flexible and accommodating and made the experience fun. Most importantly, Kristen took beautiful pictures of my family which we will treasure for years to come!
