I’ve had the pleasure of photographing this family before, and I’m so glad they again chose me again to take their fall family photos in River Forest, IL. 🙂 My client reeeeally wanted peak fall foliage and I’m glad I was able to find time in the fully-booked schedule to wiggle her time in!
The glow and colors you get at Peak Fall are 100% worth braving the burrs in the tall grass! ….there are a LOT of burrs at this location. 😅
This family is so good natured and it was super fun to see them again!
I love this sweet photo of the two kids with Dad!
The older brother was hamming it up for me this year and I loved it. He delighted in being in the spotlight!
I love her sweet smile!
One of my favorite parts about this location is the stunning color you get in multiple areas of the park! I’m glad my clients trusted me to get them some amazing fall color!
Fall Family Photos in River Forest, IL
The gradient of color is just so pretty. It’s rainbow season in the Midwest!
One of my favorite shots of the day. How cute are they?!
Here’s what my client had to say about her experience!
Kristen’s photos are absolutely beautiful and she’s wonderful at working with children to get the best shot. She’s a great communicator before, after, and during the shoot and immediately makes you feel comfortable. Her expertise on location and attire are also really helpful. Highly recommend!
Is there something special you’re hoping for in your photoshoot? This client was hoping for Peak Fall, and by staying in close communication I was able to open up an unused rain date for her. If you have special request, just let me know! I’m happy to help plan the perfect photoshoot for you!
