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 […]

I love it when moms take the time to get into the frame of the shots for some mommy and me photos! I hear over and over again, “I take so many photos of my spouse and children, but *I’m* never in the shot!” While visiting the San Diego area this summer I was so […]

It was so much fun to take these candid family photos at the Ruth Bancroft Garden in Walnut Creek, CA! So spoiler alert, this is my own family, but since we’ve moved to Chicago it’s getting to be more rare that we get to spend time together! When we went to the Ruth Bancroft Garden […]

Coming in hot, one of my favorite family photoshoots to date; I loved being the photographer for this family in Riverside, IL! It rained like *CRAZY* up until an hour before the photoshoot and we were all pretty anxious because the mom was getting her hair and makeup done at the time! I’m so glad […]

It is always a treat and an honor to photograph another photographer’s family, especially when the family is this sweet! My friend Tina Harle is an accomplished small business branding and family portrait photographer in Oak Park, and she has a tradition with her daughters to take photos each spring with the beautiful crabapple blossoms!

Early this month this Lombard, IL photographer met up with this wonderful family for some spring Mother’s Day photos in gorgeous Lilacia Park! Lilacia Park is only about 25 minutes west of Oak Park, and it is STUNNING! Shockingly there are tons of lilac bushes, but also daffodils, tulips, crabapples, and peonies. The west coast […]
