Labor Day is the perfect day to post these maternity photos, especially considering this beautiful couple is expecting tomorrow. I hope baby decides to make his debut today! I loved everything about this maternity session in Capron and I cannot wait to meet the little boy who has made these two wonderful people parents.
I have been doing a handful of shoots up in the Lake Geneva area lately, which is where I grew up, and I am loving it! I especially like shooting at Fontana beach when it closes in the evening. After all the swimmers go home and the sun is low, it becomes such a beautiful setting for pictures.
Meet Nolan, he is about the same age as my youngest and he is such a handsome little guy. I love his shoes!
Oh my goodness, Brooklyn’s two year old session was so much fun. We made such a mess with the sherbet (alternative to a cake smash, anyone?) and I love how the colors of the sherbet went with her vibrant outfit perfectly. Brooklyn has such a bubbly personality that makes taking her photo a breeze.
Oh how I just love photographing newborns. I love the moment when I first get to meet them: how their size never ceases to surprise me. I love their adorable little noises and the way they flash little grins when they are warm and full. I especially love getting to know each one during the session. Their personalities are certainly not hidden!
Lily, it was such a pleasure to meet you! I know you’ll never remember meeting me for the first time, but I can assure you, we had a good time. You certainly had us laughing when you… well, we’ll let your mom tell that story.
I made the mistake of letting this post sit in draft mode, which is sad because I love these pictures and they need to be shared! Marisa is likely already hitting the books as a freshman in college, since school has started back up again. (Where did my summer go? It went by so fast!) She looked so gorgeous and smiled through the heat. It was hot and humid that night, and it started pouring as soon as I got in my car afterward! I have been really lucky with the weather this summer, storms seem to move around and wait for my photo shoots. There have only been a handful of times that I had to reschedule due to rain or storms. We went downtown Rockford for her senior session, which is one of my favorite areas, and ended the evening on the roof of a parking garage, just in time for some moody blue clouds to roll over the skyline. Lovely!
